Windows Phone 8 Email Download Incomplete

If the metered connection disallows this download, your PC can't get the latest drivers to get the device running. In response, it will throw the "setup incomplete because of a metered connection" error.

The "Games hub" provides access to games on a phone along with Xbox Live functionality, including the ability for a user to interact with their avatar, view and edit their profile, see their achievements and view leaderboards, and send messages to friends on Xbox Live. The hub also features an area for managing invitations and turn notifications in turn-based multiplayer games.[94] Games are downloaded from Windows Phone Store.

While Windows Phone 7 users were required to attach their phones to a PC to install updates,[100] starting with Windows Phone 8, all updates are done via over-the-air downloads.[101] Since Windows Phone 8, Microsoft has also begun releasing minor updates that add features to a current OS release throughout the year.[102] These updates were first labeled "General Distribution releases" (or GDRs), but were later rebranded simply as "Updates".

The affected user encounters the error when they try to download an MMS attachment. Some users have reported facing the issue in group chats only. The error message also pops up when the user unlocks his phone (in some cases, on the lock screen) or when he launches the messaging app.

Before starting the troubleshooting process to download a multimedia message, make sure there is no file size limit enabled in the MMS settings. Also, check if another SIM is operating correctly with your phone. If so, then the problem is with the service provider. If it is not working, then the problem is with your phone. Moreover, make sure there is no network outage in the area.

Keep in mind that a non-carrier phone may fail to download the MMS message even if Wi-Fi calling is enabled. Also, if you are just having the error message and no MMS is pending, then try to activate/deactivate the message notifications in the phone settings.

You will not be able to download the MMS message if you are trying to download the MMS attachment through Wi-Fi unless the Wi-Fi calling option is activated. And if the said option is active, even then, you may encounter the issue on non-carrier phones. In this case, switching off Wi-Fi and enabling mobile data may solve the problem.

Auto-retrieve is a feature (when enabled) by which your phone will automatically download the multimedia, and the user will not have to tap on the media to download it. But this Auto-retrieve feature is a double-edged sword in the case of our error message. Sometimes it is essential for retrieving the message, whereas in other cases, it is the root cause of the issue. In our case, enabling/disabling the auto retrieve may solve the problem.

Your phone uses APN (Access Point Name) to connect to a wireless service. You will not be able to download the MMS messages if the APN settings of your phone are not valid. In this case, reinstalling or resetting the carrier settings may solve the problem.

You may encounter the error under discussion if the data profile of your device or Preferred Roaming List (PRL) database is corrupt. If there is an invalid PRL/profile, your phone may not download the MMS messages. In this context, updating the profile and PRL may solve the problem.

This is more like a temporary repair measure. If you need your files urgently, you can try this method first because troubleshooting can be time-consuming. You can use another desktop computer or smartphone to see if you can download files normally. You can also try to download files using the OneDrive web application in other browsers and you are recommended to use UR Browser.

If all the methods above fail, you can also try to contact the OneDrive support team by email OneDrive. Here, you can describe your problem and situation about cannot download files from OneDrive. Then, you will get help from the OneDrive experts. This is also a way to solve your problem.

You can directly download and install Norton 360 app on your mobile device, or you can send yourself from within your account an email or a text message or copy the link with download instructions and access it on your mobile device. You can also scan the QR code to download the Norton 360 app on your mobile. Use any QR code scanner to capture the code.

If you want to copy the download link and share it later to your mobile device - If you wish to share the download link through other means of communications, use the Copy Link option to copy the download link and share it later. If you are prompted to sign in when you click the download link, enter your account email address and password.

My iPhone address book holds nearly 800 contacts including defunct numbers, contacts containing no information, and of course the requisite dozens of duplicate contacts. This is the result of years of syncing various email accounts and social media profiles. Blank contacts can be created when Android phones use Google Voice to message or call contacts. Allowing Facebook to sync contacts with your phone book way back when could have added tons of not-really-friends into your phone.

Pick the email service you use the most as the destination for backing up your address book. I have both Gmail and accounts, but Gmail is my primary email. So that's where I'll create my consolidated address book, including Gmail contacts, phone contacts and backups of my contacts from and iCloud.

Export the contacts from any other services you use as a CSV file or vCard file. For email accounts, Microsoft Exchange or iCloud, head to the relevant website and to the contacts section to manage contacts, including exporting. If you have contacts that are saved only on your phone, Android users can do this from the contacts app; iPhone users must download an app such as My Contacts Backup for exporting contacts as CSV and vCard files. Contacts saved on Windows Phone are automatically saved online, accessible by logging into

Head into the email service you've chosen as your contacts backup central, click to the contacts section and select the option to import contacts. You'll be prompted to upload the CSV or Vcard files from your other accounts, resulting in that cloud-based, universal phone book you've always wanted.

to clear the local address book on a windows phone simply go to settings->accounts->[specific account] and uncheck the sync with address book. your phone will be immediately be freed of all contacts of that account.if you re-enable syncing everything will be downloaded again.
