    I keep getting calls from different people claiming that my MS service account is no longer valid and that I should call them to get a refund -- The number they leave is 530-535-4005

    Phone scam


    I now get no more weird foreign voices claiming to be from Microsoft's technical dept and many other such scams. We have been inundated with rubbish calls- before I added a call blocker device this reached 6 or 7 a day.

    In the UK service providers have added a new free service that means callers are challenged to leave a short message, then press #. My phone then rings, and I have the option to add the caller to my approved list, accept this call but not add it, or simply not take the call.

    I can manually add numbers to the blocked or approved list on line or using my phone.

    The downside is any valid service (library reservations, some bank services) that rely on automated calls fail.

    I have asked my service provider to consider adding a way to temporarily suspend the service.

    Supported phones for Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview


    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.
