    Are you sure, you didn't install the Mobile version of Windows?? Or did you'd some MS Phone software installed if that was come from WU??

    As MrMagic said: A Screenshot would say maybe more?!

    If the computer's OS is 'seen' as a Phone, there must be something installed which show that machine as Mobile Device, and that's pronounced as Phone, like Tablet computer with built-in Phone module, which is also pronounced Phone instead Tablet!

    My apologies in advance, but this is the funniest AND saddest Windows 10 issue I've seen on this board. "My computer thinks it's a phone!"

    It's also one of the saddest issue descriptions, because it tells us basically nothing about what this "wua error" is about.
    Good luck getting help that way, OP. :rolleyes:

    Mistranslation maybe? Would have to compare with en-US to know for sure.

    Well, I guess you don't have to worry about your telephone being up to date

    Did you install any dodgy telemetry blocks?

    Are you connected via 3/4G ?

    Got the metered data over WiFi enabled that might cause it to think you're on a phone?

    Report it via the feedback app, and get on with the rest of your day, if it's not causing any problems, ignore it

    To OP, this, basically. However; if you start getting telemarketers, then alert us immediately.

    Lol, I thought the same.

    It looks like a translation mistake. It was ok in prior builds?
