Windows 10 Mobile will not run Android apps. The Project Astoria was discontinued. There are some good reasons for it too. It reqiuired an Android subsystem within Windows devices which caused a lot of battery issues and performance downgrade These apps did not have native features such as Tiles, Interactive notifications, etc... The parallel project of ...

There is no way for an end user to install Windows Phone on a non-WP device.1 The possibility you're referring to, of installing Windows Phone on hardware originally designed for Android, is meant for OEMs, to lower the threshold for entering the Windows Phone market (no need to design a handset from scratch). To achieve this, Microsoft added to Windows ...

At this moment that is not possible, you can't run Android Apps on Windows Phone, there is no emulator that can do that, nor it can be done directly, there are some rumors that have been rising these days that Microsoft is thinking about using Android Apps, but that's just a rumor for the moment

Since you had an Android phone before, I guess you might have synced all your contacts to your gmail account. Add your gmail account to Windows phone, and set sync options to include contacts. All your contacts are automatically synced. (even without the vcf files.)

Which is better is such a personal decision, and I'd always recommend playing with a real device to see if it would work for you. Instead, and sticking to the facts, I'll focus on transferring data to/from your phone, which is dead simple - the phone appears as a "MTP USB Device", and it "just works" (at least, with Windows 8, or 8.1 - I've not tried with ...

Changing the OS is not officially supported. It also doesn't seem to be unofficially supported at the moment. There is almost no XDA development activity on the 8X or any other Windows Phone 8 device for that matter, so while it might be possible in the future to install Android, Ubuntu, Windows 8 RT, etc, it doesn't look like it will happen any time soon.

The HTC HD2, HD7 and Desire HD are roughly equivalent. The HTC Titan and Sensation XL are also roughly equivalent. I haven't heard of a Sensation XL 2 with a 16MP Camera though. In both cases, the CPUs are the same, as is most of the hardware, but while the WP version has 512MB RAM, the Android version has 768MB RAM. The Radar, Surround, Mozart and 7 Pro ...

It is obviously an old thread but for future visitors I have to offer a tip: (assuming that the reason of the export is to transfer the list to another phone/device) Instead of just blocking a number you can add the numbers you wish to block in contacts and then block that contact (eg blocked numbers 1, blocked numbers 2, etc, where each contact includes 8-...

While this isn't the ideal fix, there are free apps like Fantasia Painter Free in the WP7 marketplace that you can use to rotate those photos. With the new Windows Phone 8, basic image manipulation like rotating the image is now supported.

You might need to convert the file to a .csv file first if you plan to upload it online, this depends from service to service. It's required for Windows Live on my first look. Try http://labs.brotherli.ch/vcfconvert/ or search an off-line variant. In case you have Windows Live: Go to http://live.com/ and log into your Windows Live. On the Inbox page, click ...

Unfortunately there's currently no option to export the blocked callers list in Windows 10 Mobile. Maybe consider adding this to the feedback hub.

Here is a quick thought: Sync contacts from Windows phone to Microsoft account Export contacts from Microsoft account to computer Import contacts from computer to Gmail account Sync Gmail contacts to Android. Or follow this article, there will be the other choices.

If you find a special custom ROM for your Samsung Note 4, then it could work. Otherwise it will most definitely not work. Besides flashing unsupported ROMs is normally accompanied with lots of beta testing. If you are not a developer or have an active community where you can report errors you encounter, you will most likely end up with errors which will ...

Assuming that you have set up a live account linked to the phone, can you not import the contacts from the vcf into live on a PC and then it will sync from there to the phone? I've got 2 hotmail accounts, exchange account, facebook, twitter and linkedin all set up on the phone with all contacts syncing and linking correctly.
