    Issue after three months of usage.

    All of sudden my Lumia 730 icons/Screen shows up with large icons as if we view a windows XP when we boot with safe mode. I have checked with the store i bot from they say i will have to take it to service center and make them re install my OS 🙁

    One more issue is CALL DROPS . Even after replacing the CUT micro SIM with original MICRO SIM from Vodafone i was facing call drop issue while making any call with in few seconds ,… which is very irritating most of the times while i make calls in emergency and call drop shows up 🙁 :(…

    One more issue : If i update my Music folder of SD card with new songs and completely delete the previously present songs. and when i open MUSIC PLAYER (default) it shows up all the previous songs names along with newly added ones….. The updation system for music and video files system is very worst.

    If any one faced same issues and got it rectified let me know solution please.

    I bought this mobile on 3rd Dec, 2014 but day one phone gets hang when network connectivity restores from low coverage or some times either one sim lost its network coverage. network coverage is showing as full but when i dial a number there is no sound and it displays as dialing, i have waited for 5 min and more but still displays as dialing. when i tried to end the call the same thing happening and it displays as ending. the phone hangs there and is dead hang. I send phone to head office twice but issue is not resolved yet. they do not understand the problem also.it is waste of money to buy this phone.

      Hello Neha, thanks for stopping by and I am so sorry to hear that you are facing all these issues. One of my colleague is using this phone and I contacted her after your issues but her phone is been working fine is what she said. I would suggest if nothing they are doing then just go ahead and submit a complain against them in the consumer forum. That will help for sure. Let me know how it goes!

    Hello neha ji, With respect to nokia lumia 730 the SIM card which you use must not be a CUT SIM using the CUT puncher. I was told if we use MICRO CUT SIM in the mobile it would give the problems like call hang, call dropped, after u give a call to any number.

    So kindly contact your SIM card retailer in any outlet of them, give a xerox of the proof submitted to get that number, pay a little of 20-50 Rs. u will get a MICRO SIM manufactured by the retailer rather than a cut SIM card. I have done it and the frequency of the error u told will not persist after doing.

    I recently bought Lumia 730 phone from Flip kart and the phone’s here drive is not all all working properly.I downloaded the maps again and also tried installing here drive app again but still the issue persists.When I search for particular destination offline/online in here drive,the results are not all displayed and the only result which I get is “still searching”(very long time to search).
    Even if the route is detected the arrow head in the navigation route never change,it will be static near the initial point.
    I bought the phone because of the very important and good feature of here drive and I am really disappointed.
    Should I go to Nokia service station for the help as the guarantee period of my mobile phone still exists?
    Can anybody please help me in this regard?Thanks in advance…

    I bought a Lumia 730 model on June 23rd 2015, it was working fine but suddenly on 16-17 july it hanged. But on 18 july it went almost junk , nothing was working. when i switched it off it switched on itself automatically, actually it was not shutting down ,it was restarting again and again.
    Phone went to flight mode and it was not going to general mode.When i tried to charge the battery it heated up .
    On 19 th july I went to Nokia Care , the guy there saw it and told me that we will send it for further processing. He just wrote something on the sale receipt and told me to come back after one week. I am clueless that I bought this phone on the pretext that it will not hang as suggested by someone, but it is behaving like a cheap chinese toy in less than one month.

    Hello Prabhu,

    1. My Lumia 730 speakers sound a bit rusty during msg notifications and calls. Problem is this doesn’t happen every time. Randomly, the notification tone sounds like the speakers have tore off. Immediately when I check with the music player, the sound is very clear and loud.

    2. Frequent call drops happening in Edge connection. Even when I have full network, when I make a call the network bars drop from 5 to 1 and the call is getting dropped. This doesn’t happen when I use 3G or H+ signals. I checked with other sims also, still the same issue. My friend’s lumia 730 doesn’t have the above two issues.

    Solutions Tried:
    Nokia Care updated the software and said that it should be fine with the update, but still the problem appears.
    Factory Reset.
    Changed from modified sim to proper Micro sim.

    Please suggest me what to do.

      Chirag, what I have always seen is that when hard reset does not work then the only option left is to get it done by the care. Check once with the care if they could reset the phone and install the OS again. Hopefully, that will sort all your problems.

    Hi Prabhudatta Sahoo,

    I have been using Nokia Lumia 730 for the past two years and it has recently encountered an issue, any picture clicked in my camera or any picture sent via WhatsApp disappears from the gallery. I am not sure what is the actual problem, though – I tried restarting my mobile, removed & inserted the S.D card several times, yet nothing helps. The missing pictures appear suddenly in my phone gallery and later it disappears. Also, I am unable to share pictures via WhatsApp. I am sure it can’t be virus.

    I went through your comments on this website and they look really useful, hence i decided to seek help from you. I request your suggestions & comments if you have heard about this problem before.

    Thanks
    Aysha

      Did you try Hard resetting the device Aysha? Usually if you do it should make a difference.
