    I've got it on mine but never have used it. Might try going to Settings then choose Update and Security and see if their are any updates that will fix it.

    If that doesn't work try going to the Store and choose the three horizontal lines at the upper left then choose download and updates and let it check for any app updates.

    And if those don't work try uninstall and reinstall.

    Okay, now I am really frustrated. Things were working well enough, and then today my MMS is not working. I tried deleting my outlook account, resetting the phone, and then adding in back the account--still didn't work. Not sure this is related, but a couple of days ago my sign in to my computer demanded to be synched to my microsoft password. Not sure if that is what started this problem. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know! Thanks!

    I think it may be that my apn settings were wiped out, so I'll call airvoice tomorrow to try that.

    May be some usefull information over at Windows Central website. If it is possible that would probably be the best place to get information on how to do it. Good luck !

    I upgraded my 640 to Windows 10, that was painless. However, I lost all my old texts and contacts. I'm not a tech person, but I figured out how to get my contacts back. (they were synced to my laptop, which I didn't even know! LOL). Now, just trying to get back all my texts messages. Any ideas?

    Sorry, I can't help. I did lose all of my texts. Same like you the contacts and even my calendar events came back, but I never got the texts back. Good luck.

    Unless you specifically backed up your texts, I am not sure you can get those.

    Oh brother, now I have another issue, my phone isn't connecting to wifi. It connected with no issues before, now it won't connect. It shows the open networks, but it won't connect to them. Any ideas on this one? I'm beginning to think Windows 10 was a bad idea.
