This is probably from Facebook calendar (Facebook Events). You can prevent events that are not responded by ticking "Only show Facebook events I've responded to" in Calendar > Settings. If you don't want notification from Calendar at all, go to Settings > Lock Screen > Notifications and change calendar from options.

That symbol means there's a weather alert for your area. It may be a flood, freeze, or some other kind of warning. You'll see the same symbol on the Start tile and in the app.

I figured out the problem. The app needs to be installed on the phone itself, not the SD card. So I uninstalled it and reinstalled it accordingly. I found that out here, under Known Live tile / Lock screen issues.

As of the writing of this, pattern unlock isn't supported on Windows Phone. The only option for protecting your phone is currently a PIN code. Windows Phone 8 - Lock screen FAQ That said, it seems there is an unofficial app in the works that would add pattern unlock using the new Live Lock Screen feature in Windows Phone 8.1: New Live Lock Screen adds ...

Settings > Lock Screen > "Screen times out after" is the only place you can configure the lock screen timeout setting. The times listed in the dropdown appear to vary by device and firmware version. For example, I had a lend of a developer Lumia 920 from Nokia and it listed many timeout values including "never". Yet my own Lumia 920 (UK, unlocked) has ...

Ok, solution was really quite simple, this may be enough: Disable lock screen password Enable the lock screen password. When it prompts for the new password, it should show just the numeric phone dial keypad. Makes sense in the hindsight, though I tried other things before I figured it out. Just in case, here's a list of steps I did. Again, the bolded ...

It is not possible in the current Developer Preview of Windows Phone 8.1. The public release of Windows Phone 8.1 will feature lock screen theming apps, and these apps may contain that feature.

The timeout options vary by hardware and provider - as Shawn noted this might be due to display burning concerns. Unfortunately it seems like you can't force other options to show up at this point. However, developers can force the display to stay on as long as their app is visible. Still, the real issue is that Groove should not stop downloading when your ...

Unfortunately, that's not possible. From the WP8 Lock Screen FAQ: If you just aren't able to come up with the right password, you'll need to reset your phone to factory settings.

As a matter of fact you can set the timeout to be never. Warning This can cause serious problems such as compatiblity issues and others. You should proceed at your own risk. Steps: Go to Settings->Update & Security->For developers. Enable devoleper mode. Download Interlop Tools from here. After downloading the appx file install it on your phone. You ...

Finally, I got an answer that I went to lockscreen option under Settings, there I changed all possible things i.e., I chose bing as background abd disabled password also quick status apps are removed, where earlier I had whatsapp, email, messaging & call history after removing those apps, made a try to unlock the device by locking the issue explained ...

I am confident that you have Windows Phone 8.0 in your phone. Thus, there is nothing wrong with your phone. Go to settings -> lock screen and turn off Show artists while playing music.

You probably need to update your Glance app. To do that, you can either: Search for it in the Store (look under Nokia Collection) Follow this link to send the app to your phone Scan the QR code at the end of this WPCentral article) with your phone Use a third-party app like Lumia Pusher to check for outdated Lumia apps After that, go to Settings → ...

Ok, I found a method to do this with one app. It's far from perfect, but at least it works. Find and install Fantasia Painter app. Load the image from gallery in the app. First you are in a view where you can enlarge or shrink canvas by dragging with finger from the corner markers. You can also rotate and move the image itself, often accidentally... It's a ...

To change the wallpaper (back), you simply go to Settings > lock+wallpaper, and choose the change wallpaper button. The default wallpapers will show in a folder called "Wallpapers" (which won't show via the Pictures Hub). These will include a mix of any operator customised wallpapers, any manufacturer customised wallpapers and those from Microsoft. On my ...

I was able to get the notifications I wanted by removing my four non-Outlook accounts from the phone, then re-added them starting with the two in order I wanted to show on the lockscreen.

Not all artists have artist wallpaper available, so for some artists you may get album art, or a coloured background.

I had the same problem after Denim-upgrade. I have Lumia 820 with memory card & had transferred my Facebook there. I uninstalled it and downloaded it back to my phone memory. That solved the problem.

I have just had the same problem on my 830. Rectified by pinning to the start page. Hope this helps. Now looking for a suitable app to show multiple events on lock screen and homepage.

This issue is fixed in the build 14936. Here is what it says, We fixed the issue causing the pin pad to not be visible to unlock the phone even after rebooting the phone. We fixed the issue where some phones lose the ability to use their SIM cards. Reference: Windows 10 build 14936 rolling out for fast ring insiders.

This is called Glance Screen Feature and it is supported on newer devices like your 650. I am astonished that you hate this feature and I miss this feature so much on my Lumia 535. Glance Screen is a unique Windows phone feature that use to display a summarized information from notifications. All the information displayed by Glance Screen can be easily ...

It is not possible to change when the Bing wallpaper runs a wallpaper update on your phone but you can use other apps such as Locksider, PhotoStream and My 500px to achieve what you are looking for. Among the above apps, PhotoStream is free and the other two are not (you can try them for free).

It may be possible that the background task that updates the lock screen has been turned off. There is an article at WPCentral that details how to make sure background tasks are active for the apps you want.

The best way to restore to previous state is to use the WP8 built-in feature for "settings backup" during the first time the phone is turned on. The settings are stored in Microsoft cloud and tied back to your MSA/Live account. After you perform a hard reset or just get a new device you select to restore last settings and in couple of minutes you have your ...

To me you are describing the power button that turns off the screen. if you go to lockscreen settings: Settings -> lock screen you can set 2 things: Screen times out after: 30 seconds 1 minute to 15 minutes this is the time the screen will turn off automatically when not used. the 2nd option is: Require a password after: each time 30 seconds 1 minute ...

This can happen when Facebook is moved to the SD card. I just moved it back to phone memory and the problem was solved.

I have the same issue. The sim pincode screen is NOT working. It seems to have changed. Instead of Enter there is an OK button and the input is not shown. By placing the sim card in turned on mode I can pass by the Sim Pincode screen!

The SIM PIN screen is currently broken. So far the only fix I've found, is to remove the PIN code altogether. You can bypass the SIM screen by pressing the "back" button when you start up the phone. If you do try to enter the pin code and enter it, the phone will freeze and you will need to reset it to access the phone Again.

My lumia 830 was doing that too. My lock screen calendar was showing only an old entry. Rectified by pinning calendar to start screen. No problems since. Hope this helps.
