Set email on Noika 521
« on: July 28, 2017, 01:01:42 AM »
I just bought a bargain Noika Lumina 521 at a great price.
But no instruction manual. It has Windows 8.1 installed and a lot of apps.

I already have an email account with Microsoft. I I already have Windows 10 on my desktop. But I have never ever before tries to sync  a phone with my desktop.. Before this, my phones were either Android or Apple.

So, I am stuck on how to set up my email. I enter the email and password and it says it is not right. And it asks me to verify the email accountant and get a code to verify that it is my account. I am confused. I am sure I did the  password right.

But the phone works. It is on T-Mobile and I just put in my SIM card and it works. The issue is how to sync it with my desktop and use the same Microsoft account for both the desktop and the Windows phone.

Am I not superposed to use the same account on both?
Bear in mind, I have been using personal computers before they existed. But now even something that ought to be easy just overwhelms me.   :-[

How do I tell my Windows 8.1 phone that I have a valid Microsoft email account?
And why is it telling me the password is wrong? It works on the Desktop.

Any help welcome.  :)

Full description of the phone:
Nokia Lumia 521 8GB RM-917 White T-Mobile 4G LTE Smartphone

Often when you attempt to log in on a new device you need to answer security questions or a code is E_mailed so you can verify the access is authorized.
I was trying to dereference Null Pointers before it was cool.

Update.
The solution was to just create a new e-mail account with Microsoft.
No logical reason was apparent. But a new e-mail account did the trick.

I created the new account with a new user on my desktop.
Then I did a log in to the new account on the Noika Windows phone.
So now it works.

At $20, it was a great deal. But there is no upgrade path to Windows 10. Other than just buying a copy of Windows 10.
