    HelloA bit of a weird issue here so let me explain. I had a phone, a Galaxy Note9 'old phone' I needed to replace the phone. Now I have a Galaxy S22 'new phone'.When I had my old phone, I used it with the Phone Link app on my PC. So currently the Phone Link app is/has been 'looking for' my old phone which I am no longer in possession of. I have NOT connected my new phone to my PC via Phone Link.When I transferred my old phone data to my new phone, I didnt realize it at the time, but it did not save all my old text messages, it only covered the last 2 years as opposed to everything in my ph

    Old call will not delete out of Phone Link on my pc

    If you're facing difficulties in removing an old phone call entry from the Phone Link app on your PC, even after trying common troubleshooting steps like uninstalling, reinstalling, and clearing cache/storage, you might need to take more advanced steps to resolve the issue. Here are some suggestions:

    1. Sync and Refresh Data: Make sure that your Phone Link app is synced with your phone's call history. Sometimes, issues can arise if the sync between the app and your phone isn't functioning properly. Check if there's an option to manually sync or refresh the call history within the app settings.
    2. Check Phone Permissions: Ensure that the Phone Link app on your PC has the necessary permissions to access your phone's call history. Sometimes, issues can occur if the app doesn't have the right permissions.
    3. Check for Updates: Ensure that both the Phone Link app on your PC and the associated app on your phone are up to date. Outdated software can sometimes cause glitches and unexpected behavior.
    4. Contact App Support: If the issue persists, reach out to the app's support team. They might have encountered similar issues before and could provide guidance specific to their app's functionality.
    5. Reset App Settings: If the app has an option to reset settings or clear data (not just cache), consider using this option. However, be cautious as this might remove any personalized settings or configurations you've made within the app.
    6. Windows Updates: If you're using Windows, make sure your operating system is up to date. Sometimes, Windows updates can include bug fixes that might address issues with third-party apps.
    7. Temporary Workaround: If the above steps don't resolve the issue and the old call log entry is causing inconvenience, you might consider using the Phone Link app on a different device if possible.
    8. Patiently Wait: Sometimes, syncing and cloud services can take some time to update and reflect changes. It's possible that the old call log entry might eventually disappear on its own as the synchronization process catches up.
    Remember that each app's behavior can vary, and specific steps might differ based on the app's design. If you're unsure about the right steps to take, don't hesitate to reach out to the app's support or help documentation for more detailed assistance.

    Supported phones for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Mobile

    Your list confirms my phone is eligible, Lumia 521. The windows Insider App fails after ~ 15 seconds, restores data and gives me error 80073cf9. I trouble shot this and went thru all the steps mentioned on several websites including MS without any luck. Short of a hard reset, this is where I am now. Suggestions appreciated.
