Will I still be able to make calls and use the internet
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
After I reset it
Technician: Ashik, Smartphone Tech replied 3 years ago
Yes, you will be able to make call and use internet after resetting it. Resetting will erase everything from the phone and install a fresh firmware on it, like a out of box phone. Remember, backup your important files before resetting. I just checked and found that Cyan 8.10.12393.890 is available for 520, but it is carrier specific. What carrier are you using ? AT&T ? Only rate the answer after we've solved the problem

Technician: Ashik, Smartphone Tech replied 3 years ago
The 520 Cyan Update is only available for AT&T Lumia 520 models (US models). Did you buy this phone from AT&T ?
Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
Yes its att but its also thru straight talk also. If I can't have it at the same level I have I'll just keep it the way it is
Technician: Ashik, Smartphone Tech replied 3 years ago
If the phone is from AT&T, then the update should be available by now. What version of OS are you using now ?
Ask Your Own Smartphones Question
Customer reply replied 3 years ago
My friend did but I did the bring your phone plan I've already installed all the updates for cyan at least till it stopped updating anything w/out a password ***** nothing I enter is
Technician: Ashik, Smartphone Tech replied 3 years ago
If it is asking for any password, then it would be the Microsoft account password. You can reset it from here --> https://account.live.com/resetpassword.aspx Reset the password ***** see if the phone accepts new password. If not, you can reset it and start over. Remember, factory reset will erase everything from it. You can also update your Lumia from your PC using a special software called Lumia Software Recovery. But you have to do this at your own risk.
