Anyone else miss the old windows phones produced by Nokia?
Okay no disrespect is meant towards Microsoft in anyway or form what so ever. Okay now with this statement out of the way, lets move on towards the main focus as this conversation's title states. So anyway yeah I was wondering if anyone else out there was lucky enough to own, or even use any of the original Window Phones, that were created and produced by Nokia? Don't get me wrong, for what few phones I have tried and even seen sold by Microsoft, we still very nice, fun, and well made, however I feel like they took over the phone market a little to soon. In my opinion they should have either waited a few more years, or at the very least came to some sort of agreement that allowed Nokia to continue building phones. The reason I say this, is because of two reasons. The first of if when Nokia was creating the phones, the were offering way better phone specs, features, and sizes on the market with use with prepaid services than Android and Apple, (And to think Apple still hasn't even bothered creating a cheap affordable device for low to mid low income individuals... talk about being all loyal to their Boujee class of peoples. LOL) And the other reason being, that their top of the line model phones, where created with amazing and not to mention most incredible cameras to still ever be found on a cell phone. For examples of what I am talking about, look at both the AT&T Windows Nokia 1020, (the phone had decent memory, was shaped like a small digital camera, and had a back facing camera that took 41megapixal photos), and the AT&T Windows Nokia 1520, (A pretty well design and durable phone that was bigger than the Note 3 and Note 4 which were the best Android Phones at the time. It had a back facing camera with 20 megapixels). *A Little Fun Fact: It is mainly all thanks to Nokia with their creation of Window Phones, that we have the decent size and as good as quality cheap android phones on the market as we do today. So anyway, does anyone else miss them?

Microsoft Launcher for Android Phone
How do I setup my Microsoft Launcher to have it verbally tell me who is calling; verbally read text messages from my Android phone.
Will Microsoft ever re-launch Windows based phone(s)?
I for one,and with great certainty, am unhappy with the Google/Android cabal. I currently own and use an Android based phone, because I don't like the costs and controls inherent to the Apple World. The Chrome "Operating System" and Google browser are tools for the data mining hordes that are Alphabet/Google/Chrome/Android. I make every attempt to shut-off, delete, and never use Google based products; still they track my location(s), and attempt to force recommendations to my phone. I turn-off all location and data sharing options daily. Every time I charge my phone Android resets my defaults. I use Microsoft Launcher, Edge, Bing et al; because I choose to limit access (whenever I am able) and believe that the Microsoft people are slightly more trustworthy, and have treated better since the 1970's. When attempting to use Bing Maps, via Android phone, I am often blocked or switched/defaulted to Google Maps, and all Android location services are switched-on. I daily get Google/Android push notices telling to adopt the Android way of life. When first introduced, I saw little green Android droid as a cute logo. I now believe that it a symbol of semi-conscious forced assimilation. Whatever happened to the "Don't Be Evil" header? Have they collectively choked on the Irony of the very Idea? Mister Gates and Microsoft have accepted Android as the "Winner", in regards a mobile platform. I am using Android "only " because there appears NO viable option(s). I currently see Huawei and Alphabet/Google/Android as being equally "Trustworthy", and only marginally different in motivation for controls.
Photos import from phone problem solved
I had a problem with my android phone (Samsung S10+) importing photos to my computer and I couldn't fix it right away until I found the problem and solved it, hope this helps you if you come across the same issue. The problem: I had an iPhone and I went to Android and when I transferred all the information from one phone to the other it carried all the information so my new phone worked but when I took new photos it would stop and not import all the photos or created duplicates. The solution: I looked in my phone and the folders that were inside and there was an iPhone folder with photos and other folders. I had to transfer the photos to a folder in my phone and deleted the iPhone folders. Now my phone and my computer work great together importing the photos is back to being easy and fast. thanks for reading in case you have the same problem.
Help needed setting-up a Huawei phone with Windows Launcher
Just got a Huawei phone to replace my Windows phone and i want to set it up like my Windows phone. I'v been reading up first on the best way to do it, but the more I'v read the more I got confusied. So some of my questions are: Do you install Your Phone Companion before Microsoft Launcher or can you just install Microsoft Launcher on it's own. When I have installed the Windows Apps I want in Launcher, (I assume I set up my Windows Account during insulation of Launcher) dose this link my phone to my computer?. If not, then what other actions do I need to preform. I'm in the UK and a bit on the senior side, so any answers please in simple English. Thanks in advance for any help.

Microsoft's support/endorsement of Android based phones ?
Microsoft has endorsed Android phones. I am here to tell you, the experiment has FAILED. Microsoft Launcher does NOT work well. I use it every day, and every day Google/Android resets my defaults for information and location sharing. If I am forced to use this P.O. S. operating system, why should I share ANYTHING with Google? Why must I maintain a Gmail account to access, download, and use MICROSOFT apps? Google/Android/Alphabet are a data mining cabal, that I attempt to avoid when and where-ever possible. If it is their OPERATING SYSTEM, it is by definition corrupt. In the same manor that a preloaded Facebook app allows Facebook to track information whether you open the app, or not. In the same way that Thomas Jefferson stated, "The access to a man's books and writings, is access to his soul." Government, nor Uncle Google, the ability to access our "information" should not be the confused with the right to do so. We each, as individuals, are "A Special Interest Group of One". When information tracking (and data storage) were difficult and/or expensive we had little need for concern. We are huge collections of data points, and while Microsoft is not without fault, I would like the ability to limit my exposure wherever possible. My wish is that Microsoft may lead this resistance. More data does not make everything better, just less "personal", and many steps closer to Chinese-style government control. If you approve of the political happenings in Hong Kong today, do nothing, and in a few years we will all become "subjects" of similar tactics. James Madison stated, " The Sole purpose of Government, is protect the Individual from the Tyranny of Majority. " Thanks, one and all, for your attention and consideration.
