WP Lumia 535 connectivity issues

I have a WP Lumia 535 that cannot connect to the updater, apparently a frequent
problem.
Can I connect it directly to the router & if so how would I do this?
For those folks contemplating purchasing the Lumia 535, I would advise caution!
Microsoft are not interested & the seller blames Microsoft.  Angry
Lots of complaints on the internet about this connectivity issue and a £90
phone is considered an "entry level phone"

Re: WP Lumia 535 connectivity issues

My mother has had her Lumia 535 for several months now - its a unlocked generic UK firmware version, the phone has performed faultlessly & has received several updates from Microsoft since she has had it.
The Lumia 535 is one phone up from the entry level 435.
£90 for a Lumia 535  Shocked they have been on sale from several high street shops much cheaper then that, my mother only paid £50 from Carphone warehouse on a pay as you go upgrade deal  Wink
What's the exact error message your getting?
Are you trying to update over mobile network OR WiFi?
There is always the recovery tool BUT back up ALL your data BEFORE you use it!

Re: WP Lumia 535 connectivity issues

I have now remedied the issue.
I used a usb lead and the Windows Recovery tool, wiped the drive
& re-installed all the data from a backup.
Problem solved.
I bought the phone quite early on, they have dropped in price
quite a bit since I got mine. I have also installed a 32gb card in it
which has also helped.
It is a lovely phone, but just google lumia error codes & you will find
that a lot of folk have had problems. I am hoping that it will upgrade to
Win 10 when its available.
