Problem is with the charger you're using. May be it's from manufactures other than your device's. It'll have different amperage and will affect your phone. You might not face any problems with charging via PC or laptop as it's current is lower as compared to normal wall chargers. Only I can say is, get a new generic charger asap.

Currently Windows 8 phones should still be under warranty. Exchange it for a new one with your provider.

This error occurs only under two circumstances: Attempting to flash the memory. Especially when done by inexpirienced user. Using one of the apps or websites that fake error screen. Cure for first one is simple, but expensive: go to service and ask them to fix the phone, or swap it for a new one. Cure for second one is even simpler and free: hold windows ...

The car charger will have the same output as a standard charger, so no problems there. The degradation people are mentioning is probably due to the car kit frequently charging your phone to 100% which isn't good for lithium-ion batteries. I believe most phones will stop charging when it gets to 100%, but the problem will be that you may frequently turn ...

According to this forum thread, it doesn't look like it's possible to disable the 'Camera shutter' sound when using the HTC 8X on Telstra... http://crowdsupport.telstra.com.au/t5/Windows-Phones/HTC-8x-camera-shutter-sound/td-p/175144 Note: If you were able to flash the phone with an unbranded firmware (ie. not Telstra) then the option to disable the '...

Hello I have had a similar problem, first make sure your phone is getting the text message through your cellular network and not over wifi, you likely are not able to recieve messages over wifi, next go to settings, cellular, and select "data connection" and on. You may also need to check "data roaming options" depending on if your carrier is in your area ...

I have experienced similar issues on a Lumia 1520 device. Make sure that the date and time is set correctly. Some devices apparently have issues maintaining a synchronized clock when their battery depletes.

There are few things to note here: One of the minimum requirements as specified by Microsoft for a phone to qualify as an official Windows 8 device is to be dual core. This requirement was introduced for Windows Phone 8 and didn't exist for Windows Phone 7.x. For multiple-core processors, the usage of the cores is application dependent. If an application is ...

The Windows Phone app for desktop is notorious for being terrible (though to be fair, it's still marked as beta). Have you tried just adding files via File Explorer? In my experience this causes the least trouble. The Windows Phone app for Windows 8 seems to be working correctly now too. Another possibility is that Xbox Music on the phone is correcting tags ...

There is no way for you to debug or get any extra information about the operating system crashing. I would suggest turning on the feedback option under settings->system->feedback, this way Microsoft has a chance of getting some information about the crash.

I purchased a pad called Samsung easy charge at Best Buy. It was for some Galaxies, not all, but it charges my Nokia Lumia 920 beautifully. I tried it at the store before buying. Best Buy does not deal with Windows phones so they don't sell the pads for Nokia, but this worked for me. My grandson has a Samsung Galaxy, and the charger did not work for his ...

As far as I know the Verizon HTC Windows Phone 8X also supports the Qi charging standard (compare: http://www.zdnet.com/nokia-lumia-920-or-htc-windows-phone-8x-a-purchase-made-with-the-head-instead-of-the-heart-7000007211/). So you can buy any Qi compatible charging pad (like e.g. the Nokia or Blackberry ones) in your favorite store.
