    Cortana can no longer lookup phone numbers?


    Cortana can no longer look up phone numbers. Whenever I ask for a phone number I get "Sorry I can't help with that" or the response below. Why can Google on my tiny smartphone lookup phone numbers and Cortana is unable to on my desktop computer?Windows is getting worse instead of better!

    :)

    Suggestion - Lookup tooltip

    Lookup button has no tooltip now. I suggest one to be added.
    Saying something like "Lookup your video card in GPU database and open info link"/etc.

    Please add. Thanks!

    Blocking Cell Phone Numbers

    Here's one way to get around the problem. It's kludgy but it should work.

    Get a VOIP based phone service or a magic jack. For 24/7 access, you're better off with VOIP that uses an ethernet adapter, but that's up to the user.

    The important point is to find one that lets you create your own "black list" of callers. Usually they will have both black and white list options and these are usually a subcategory under the "do not disturb" or similar feature.

    The provider will usually let you create a second number for $5-10 per month. You'll use this for your cell phone number. If it is ever compromised, you can change it easily without affecting the base number.

    Forward the second number to your cell phone and give everyone that one as your "cell phone" number. There will be a delay of a few seconds as calls get routed, but who cares. It's not like any of us is on Obama's speed dial right?

    Now when you get assholes calling you, just add them to the black list.

    You can also block calls w/o caller id this way if your cell phone co. doesn't already do that for you.

    Cortana Notebook

    In order to enable the Notebook icon in Cortana, I suggest you to check if you have enabled Cortana.

    To enable Cortana, please follow the steps below:

    • Go to Cortana.
    • Go to Settings.
    • Turn on “Cortana can give you suggestions, ideas, reminders, alerts”.

    Hope this helps.
