reformatting of lumia 925 running vs 8.1 in order to obtain email account, rendered web browser unavailable


  • After reformatting of my lumia 925 running vs 8.1 in order to obtain email account, there is no longer a web browser unavailable. I have tried to load Internet Explorer but to no avail.

    I am considering upgrading to vs 10.1 and think this may be a solution.

    Any ideas?

  • Hi Nicolas,

    Your Lumia925 is not based on Windows CE so does not belong in the SmartDevices Forum.  I suggest you follow up with whomever suggested you reflash your device.  I have email on my Windows Phone device (8.1) and I configured it through settings, no flashing required.

    If you do want to try pre-release images, you should join Windows Insiders at
