Positioning methods
Your phone shows your location on the map using GPS, GLONASS, A-GPS, Wi-Fi, or network
(Cell ID) based positioning.
The availability, accuracy and completeness of the location information depend on, for
example, your location, surroundings, and third party sources, and may be limited. Location
information may not be available, for example, inside buildings or underground. For privacy
information related to positioning methods, see the Microsoft Mobile Privacy Policy.
The Assisted GPS (A-GPS) network service and other similar enhancements to GPS and
GLONASS retrieve location information using the cellular network, and assists in calculating
your current location.
A-GPS and other enhancements to GPS and GLONASS may require transferring small amounts
of data over the mobile network. If you want to avoid data costs, for example when traveling,
you can switch the mobile data connection off in your phone settings.
Wi-Fi positioning improves positioning accuracy when satellite signals are not available,
especially when you are indoors or between tall buildings. If you're in a place where the use
of Wi-Fi is restricted, you can switch Wi-Fi off in your phone settings.
Note: Using Wi-Fi may be restricted in some countries. For example, in the EU, you are
only allowed to use 5150–5350 MHz Wi-Fi indoors, and in the USA and Canada, you are
only allowed to use 5.15–5.25 GHz Wi-Fi indoors. For more information, contact your
local authorities.
The trip meter may not be accurate, depending on the availability and quality of your satellite
connection.

Use your work phone
A company account on your phone helps you do your job.
If you have a work phone, your company can create a company account that keeps the info
in your phone more secure, gives you access to documents or info from inside the company's
network, and even provides apps or hubs that help you do your job.
If your company has apps available, you are given the option to download them, as soon as
you've finished adding the company account to your phone. If an app isn't available until after
you've already set up your account, your company can let you know how to get it.
A company hub lets you get to all sorts of company info in one place – such as news, expenses,
apps, or access to a company store. Installing a hub works the same way as installing a
company app – if one's available, you have the option to add it once you've added your
company account. If your company develops a hub later, you are offered another way to get
it set up when ready.
Most company accounts include a policy. A company policy allows your company to add
safeguards to your phone, often to protect confidential or sensitive info.
To set up your company account, on the start screen, swipe from the top of the screen, and
tap ALL SETTINGS > workplace.

Tips for business users
Use your phone efficiently at work.

You can use different mail addresses for business and leisure. You can add several mailboxes
to your phone and use the same mail account both on your phone and on your PC, be it

can join meetings directly from calendar invitations. You can use the integrated mail and
calendar so that, for example, when you have a meeting coming up, you can view the attendee
list and, with a tap, access any mail or text message discussions you have had with an attendee.
Keep your data secure on your phone
Your phone has a variety of security options to make sure no one else has access to the
sensitive data you have stored on your phone. For example, you can set your phone to lock
automatically, or you can even locate your phone if it gets lost (not available in all regions).
For more info, go to www.microsoft.com/en-gb/mobile/business/lumia-for-business.
You may use a virtual private network (VPN) connection to access your company resources,
such as intranet or corporate mail, or you may use a VPN service for personal purposes.

the OneDrive settings. Check people.live.com for your backed up contacts and
