I just got into a 2 years contract and I got a Lumia 610. I always been fan of nokia phones and I am not planning to change until I got this nightmare phone.
It has so many limitations that I wouldn't finish it tonight telling them all! But never mind that. I guess I just have to get used to it.
However, there is something very very upsetting with this so called phone. I need some applications for internet. For instance I cannot get flash player in order to be able to play my favorite radio station which requires flash player.
Also there are some apps that I want to install in my phone but I can access through them only via "google play" and my nice looking Lumia phone (but rather useless) wont let me have it. Most of the apps that I want such as opera and google chrome or flash, HAS TO be done by "google play". This fact is driving nuts.
Not to mention that I can't use Bluetooth so I can transfer my contacts from my old nokia. I can't believe that my OLD Nokia E73 it is way more useful that this Lumia 610. Now I have to go back to the store just too see if I can swap this useless phone for something that I can really use.
Now, My questions is. Is there any way I can install "google play" so I can get the apps that I need for my phone?? The "market place" from microsof is a disgrace places full of weird and unnecessary apps.
I just need a nice phone which can accept the apps that I need, so is there any way to get "google play" some how??? or I have to go and get and IPHONE that I been refusing to use but seems to me like they do really work.
Sorry about my complain but as you have noticed I am very frustrated and disappointed about my new phone which I have contract for 2 years.
Thank you in advance for any answer.
Solved! Go to Solution.
Google play is for android apps which are not compatible with your lumia. Windows phone apps are available from the marketplace. I am currently running a lumia as well as a few androids. Marketplay may not be as populated as google play but personally I did manage to get all the apps I needed for the lumia.
Have you tried the Contacts Transfer app?

And Virginmobile say that mms is not supported on this phone!!! What a load of

can anyone explain please
I am retired and do not need to be as socially active as most young people who need to be almost constantly using the many apps that require a data/internet connection. The 610 being a quad band phone will work in any country that we visit. This is the main reason that we bought it. I already have a Samsung 10.1 tablet that will provide us with mobile data when we travel. We do have a small ptoblem that has suddenly come out of left field and I am hoping that one of the many tech savy young people out there can come up with a suggestion. The ring tone has stopped working after initially working OK. I have checked the settings and they are correctly switched on. What is happening with incoming calls is that the phone vibrates. The only thing that comes to mind is that I had our phone carrier switch off the data connection as initially we found that the phone was automatically connecting and started to run up casual data usage. I understand that many of the apps available rely on making a data connection. I already have 10GB / month available through our ADSL connection so don't need the added cost of unsolicited data usage by our mobile. I am at a loss as to why we cannot get the ring tone/s to work so am hoping that somebody out there can hit the nail on the head for me.
