UK users will be able to use this update as per their local accent as Cortana supports British pronunciations and spellings. As far as Microsoft is concerned UK is one of the largest markets after US and this is the reason the company is giving so many new options to UK users.

The exact error message

Whenever people are trying to connect to the wifi on their Windows phone 8.1 the exact error message that is coming is ‘this connection has limited or no connectivity’ and in few cases the error message that is coming is ‘No internet access’. There are few who are also getting this error message ‘The connection is limited’.

This issue of wifi not getting connected can be easily solved as all you need is patience and focus. Here are some important steps that can be followed to solved the issue.

What are the possible solutions?

The first and the foremost solution that can be tried is by resetting the TCP/IP stack. After performing this step you need to restart your smart phone. There are chances that the problem will be solved.

If the first solution does not work then you can opt for the second one. You need to disable the Wi-Fi adapter and then again re-connect.

You can also try to enable the metered connection downloads and then try to re-connect the Wi-Fi connection.

There are many times when by resetting the TCP/IP auto tuning also solves the problem.

Try some more tried and tested solutions

Apart from all of the above mentioned solutions there are few more tried and tested solutions that can be tried. You can also try to use the netsh.exe. The TCP/IP stack can be easily reset to its default configuration with the help of netsh.exe.

You can also try to delete every other VPN connection. You only need to keep the required VPN connection with you and simply discard the remaining ones.

There are few people who have also got this issue sorted out by turning ON/OFF the airplane mode. If nothing works then hard resetting can be tried. But you need to make sure that all the data is saved somewhere.

You can easily search on the internet about how to hard reset your Windows 8.1 based smart phone. If you are not able to hard reset your smart phone then you can contact the nearest mobile dealer or Nokia authorized center so that they can help you in hard resetting your smart phone.

The recent Windows Phone 8.1 is the advanced mobile operating system launched by Microsoft Corporation and is code named as ‘Blue’. Last month saw this new mobile operating system being launched at Microsoft’s 2014 build conference. As per news it is believed that the new Nokia Lumia 930 is going to be launched very soon. Here is the complete and detailed description about Windows Phone 8.1 mobile operating system.

Amazing update from Microsoft

The best part about this latest window mobile operating update from Microsoft is that it comes with highly advanced and user friendly features. There are many technical experts who are terming it as 8.5 or Windows 9 update. For them terming it as 8.1 update is like doing injustice to it. These technical experts have been wating for quite long time for having this new update and it seems that their patience have paid off pretty well. Another reason why it has been termed as 8.1 is because Microsoft is trying to align it with Windows 8.1 for desktop.

The first update is its colorful background on the start screen and it seems that Microsoft has answered to the request placed by many people regarding this new customization. The ability to set wallpapers from different sources is seen as welcome step and will help those people who love to change their smart phone’s wallpaper every day.

Auto-Hide feature has been removed

Another most interesting change that has been introduced is the removal of auto hide features. It means that the data connection, Wi-Fi, Signal Strength, battery and location will remain on the screen and will not go into auto-hide mode.

Smaller fonts and redesigning of the new people’s hub has also been introduced which looks amazingly fresh and beautiful. Another new feature is the availability of speed dial. The time on the lock screen is now available with larger font and it moves down automatically on the screen if any sort of notifications come.

Earlier an annoying sound use to come when the charging got complete but now it has been replaced by a shorter and less annoying sound. It is a welcome relief for all those who felt disturbed by that annoying sound.

You can easily differentiate between old and freshly installed apps

Now whenever you are going to install a fresh app it will automatically say ‘new’ and you will be easily able to differentiate between the old and freshly installed apps.

Moreover the games that you are going to install will reflect under the app list as well as the Games hub. The smart-glass linking with Games hub has been removed and new friends and messages icons has been added. All these new features are making Windows 8.1 mobile operating system more users friendly and highly flexible.

In short we can say that this time Microsoft is trying to completely revamp its approach by introducing leaner fonts and excellent customized views. Perhaps it is trying to learn its lessons from iOS and Android’s success.
