"hard reset is possible by pressing off key+down arrow"

 

Actually thats a soft reset. It retains all your settings, apps and data.

 

A hard reset is thru settings > about > reset phone.

Re: Lumia 720 disadvantages

If your phone"hangs" or becomes unresponsive you can press and hold the volume down button along with the power button for approximately 12 seconds until the phone vibrates.

This will force the phone to restart and is the same as pulling the battery out. It won't delete any personal user data but the date and time will reset to factory defaults. So unless your network supports automatic time setting (and you have the option turned on in settings) you will have to adjust the date and time manually.

2: i am unable to attach a document file while reply to the mails, it always shows photos.

3: its prompting my email account password continuously with out any reason. its horrible to use this handset.

Even i have contacted Nokia care and they reinstalled my OS

Re: Lumia 720 disadvantages

Hi All,

Well Im writing this complaint to the Nokia Head and everyone who reads this , would first of all say NOKIA HAS DISSAPPOINTED ME AND ESP NOKIA LUMIA 720. 

 

I was gifted this phone by my family 0n 23rd  August '2013 and since then i have been going through the trouble of this phone HANGING,FREEZING,NOT WORKING,SWITCHING OFF!! and this has happenend in August, Sep, Oct and now again in Novemeber. 

 

The Nokia Care Centre in lajpat nagar O-9 NRI Communication - Lajpat Nagaer -2 , has a very pathetic service towards customer and they Lie directly on your face. Since i have got this phone i have registered 3 complaints with them and todays complain #116 at counter 3 was registerd. They have blankly refused to change the phone even after my two attempts when i met their Engineer Technicians they had informed me that the phone is updated with the Amber software and now since it is in warranty the phone will be replaced if it HANGS ONCE MORE. TOday spoke to the counter staff MR.CHAND , AND THE Store Owner Mr Pradeep who spoke rudely saying he will not change the Phone only will repair this handset. 

 

If this is the way NOKIA IS going to treat its customers then im AFRAID THAT THIS PRODUCT AND BRAND NOKIA WILL BE AT RISK OF LOOSING LOYAL CUSTOMERS. 

 

I am  asking for a refund or a brand new phone to be replaced to me if not i will be forced to go to LEGAL and get this sorted out . My Phone is only 3months old and hung over 5 times.. 

 

Request for all who read this never to BUY A NOKIA LUMIA 720 because of these problems.!!! 

 

Awaiting a reply on this !!!!

Re: Lumia 720 disadvantages

Jut updating another issue with my great Lumia 720, there was a problem i found in the back side from the begening and i ignored it. my lumia back cover was misplaced and the case placed slightly on the camera flash light. i was noticed it since dust are going inside through the tiny hole.

 

I am wondoring now when i found a scarch on it 3 days before. I am dam sure this problem ocured because of the miss configuration of the back panel. but who will trust me. if i go to the service center as usel they will start argue with me.

But my Lumia is just 3 month OLD ONE.. Like 1 year OLD.

 

I have attacehd snapshot this. simply expecting reply :smileyhappy:

Hi Nnarc,

 

I am also a sufferer like you.My phone never worked and they wont change the set. Its a pain. I know no one will reply to your post as well. let me know if you find the solution for this.

I wish I had bought micromax instead of this.

Re: Lumia 720 disadvantages

Another possible disadvantage:

 

Does anybody know why beta pulse app is not available for my nokia lumia 720?

Does any alternative similar app exist?

 

Thanks!

Lumia 720 touch screen problem

I bought a Lumia 720 on 10.12.2013, within a two month the display was jumping,  without touch the screen moving automatically. I feel touch screen fault, I went to give for a service in Nokia care in coimbatore , tamilnadu, India, They said The touch is gone, have to replace it, and there is no stock . Have to wait for one week time. I cant understand how this type of poor quality is comming from Nokia. In this advanced world, cant they produce good product with good future.  also cant they keep replacement item. 

 

 can any one help me to get replacement for my mobile. I invest Rs.18000/- for this 720.
