If you are running out of battery where you cannot finish the day without the phone dying, having a replacement battery you can swap out will not damage the phone at all as long as you purchase a suitable replacement. In fact, this has been a common practice amongst business users and a complaint about many high end phones which tend to not have replaceable ...

Click it Deselect Insert a space after selecting a ...

I don't own a Lumia 820 but this calculation shown be a good guide for how much time you can record. According to the Lumia 820 specs on the Nokia website, the main camera records at 1080p with a frame rate of 30 fps. I assume these are the "standard settings" that you refer to.

Unfortunately, it's not possible to see the call start time for calls made more than one week ago, nor the duration of the calls made, like explained here. Let's hope that Windows Phone will soon offer this kind of (basic!) functions...

All the rooting methods for WP (and W10M) either require a custom ROM (definitely needs USB) or require installing "homebrew" apps that are not allowed in the store, and therefore must be "sideloaded". Unfortunately, it's probably not possible to sideload apps on stock WP8.1. First, your phone would need to be "developer unlocked" to allow sideloading at ...

The first thing to check would be if your phone manufacturer even claims to have included aptX support. I'm not seeing anything about it on GSM Arena, though they do mention it for other phones that have it: http://www.gsmarena.com/nokia_lumia_820-4968.php And on the aptX website the only Lumia listed is the 630: https://www.aptx.com/products?...

There's no ROM specifically for the 820, no. However, there is a known process for unlocking the bootloader on the first-gen Lumia WP8 devices, which lets you install a customized ROM; you can use this to install one that lets you change the device identification such that it tells Microsoft it is eligible for W10M (or, in theory, you could make a W10M ROM ...

I know this problem. Maybe it will multiply again. The solution is very simple. First you back up all the songs. Then you should clear the thumbnail cache of Music. This will be hidden in Music folder of Phone memory. After you did this you can use Windows Phone's desktop app to sync the music. If you want to copy via Explorer you should rearrange your music ...

I am having this issue, (not getting notifications, and not getting them at all) but when I turned off my WIFI on my LUMIA 520, then all the sudden the notifications started working again. I turned WIFI back on (and am connected to my home signal) and the notifications stopped working.

If you didn't back up your photos in any way (through Zune or OneDrive for example) there is not really a way to recover those without opening up the device, getting the memory chip, rendering your warranty void and propably damaging the phone. Sorry.

You can download the user guide as a PDF. On page 7 of the linked guide you can see how to change the SIM card. Nokia suggests prying open the shell by putting your thumbnail in the seam between the screen frame and the back cover, then bending the cover until it opens. A blunt knife might be helpful if you have troubles prying it open with your fingers.
