    I am not able to sign in to O365 on my Nokia 1520! The message says Couldn’t sign in, check user name and password.
    I have become obsessed with this! I’ve had a ms office 365 account since 3/13. I use my windows live creds to sign in but it doesn’t accept!

    • Rick

      Hey Charles,

      First Go to your Office 365 account on PC or laptop and check there if login done or not. IF yes then plz change your password once and hard reset your lumia. IF problem don’t resolve send me screenshots what its shows.

      Thanks for comment. Visit always.

        Is the O365 log-in the same as the Windows Live log-in that I established several years ago?

        • charles carr

          I didn’t understand the last email you sent me.
          The windows live log-in that I set up several years ago is accepted by “O365” on the website but not on the phone.
          Of course typing in O365 takes you to the Microsoft office website.

    Does not answer the real question what if the Lumia phone asked for the domain settings? What do you enter with office 365. Even if i put in what i think are the correct settings, the phone does not enable the finish button?
