The Nokia account is used in devices that work based on the technologies of the Windows Mobile operating system. We are talking, of course, about the devices that are included in the lineup called “Lumiya”. A user profile is required for many of the things and services that the corresponding operating system is equipped with. It is possible that the first time you start the device, your Nokia account has not been created or activated. But do not be discouraged, because you can start doing this operation at any time you like.
What if the first launch was already?
If you already started using the phone a while ago, and your Nokia account has not yet been created before this point, you can proceed as follows. By touching the central touch control element (windows), we exit to the desktop of our device. In principle, this can be done while in the application. Nevertheless, it will probably be more convenient. So, swipe down from the top of the screen to display a kind of menu. In the right corner we can see the inscription “All settings”. Click on this button. After that, the device will redirect us to the engineering menu of the phone. Here you can find an item called "Mail Accounts. ” Click on it, and then look for a function called “Add Service”. When this operation is completed, a Nokia Lumia account will be added to your device. What do I need to do? So, after we entered the appropriate menu, select “Microsoft Account”. All that remains is to create a new profile or enter an existing one. When activating a new record, the user can be guided by the instructions displayed on the screen. At the same time, to enter an existing profile, you will need to enter the user name, as well as his personal password to identify and confirm access.
Why do I need a Microsoft account on Nokia?
A user profile is required to use individual services. For example, such as OneDrive. Each owner of the device running the Windows Mobile operating system is provided with a separate amount of space in the cloud storage, where the user can put multimedia data in order to save long-term memory on his phone. At the same time, having created a Microsoft account, you can always take part in using the functions of the My Family section. Activating your profile will also enable you to quickly exchange data and information with your friends and relatives who have accounts.
What if you turn on Lumiya for the first time?
Creating an account will make the use of the phone much more comfortable and colorful, as new opportunities will be opened for the user. A profile will be required to fully enjoy the benefits that the phone provides. Initially, note that an Internet connection is required to create and confirm activation of a Microsoft account. Pay attention to this. Connection can be made both through a Wi-Fi access point, or using a tariff plan on a SIM card inserted in the phone.
First of all, turn on the device. In this case, you must install a SIM card in advance. After this is done, proceed to the initial setup of the device. To do this, you can simply linearly follow the instructions that will be displayed on the display of the smartphone. After that, create an account in the system. Or we enter an existing profile by entering a username and password. As you can see, there is nothing particularly complicated in this process. The company made sure to start working with the device as quickly as possible.
