    You can save it first then open with Adobe Acrobat Reader.
    If I wanted to go through multiple steps to open a PDF from my mail I'd stay with my iPhone.

    We're so used to workarounds that the line between not having a particular function and a broken one has been blurred beyond recognition.

    If you install Adobe, there are optiins when you click on pdf file. Just click on Acrobat reader,it wilk open. No need to download or save file.

    Trying to rule out the CU update as an issue for my speaker problems, I just tried to use WDRT 3.11.34101 to reset my unlocked Idol 4S (running on ATT). No joy.
    Chose "IDOL4S - T-Moble" and then it let me pick "IDOL4S - Open Market" (wierd).
    It say the device firmware version is unknown, and the server firmware version is 1052.16.09031.50700. That is actually the same firmware version that is installed on the device already.
    I then got it into Flash mode (after multiple retries),
    and it immediately gave the illuminating message "Operation ended with failure. Software installation failed. Please try restarting your device and try the software installation again...."

    Oh well.
    What is the best way to get Alcatel warranty RMA on an open market device? How long have you folks had to wait to get your device replaced? What kind of paperwork was required? I really cannot go without a phone, so I'm trying to decide how to proceed. Suggestions?
    RMA took me about 1 week (5-7 days). Go to this thread for info we are seeing regarding the FFU issue. Alcatel ultimately needs to address this IMO.

    My hunch is that Alcatel is preparing a FW update. It is the only way this makes sense (FFU flashing failing on the Open Market NA model). All we can do is wait and see for now.

    You didn't read my first post on this subject, the Creator Update has broken this function. Edge is your only option to open attached PDF files.

    No update on my T-mo branded locked (non insider) idol. Hope it doesn't take long.

    Yes, PDF attachments can only be opened with Edge. The option to open with other apps is gone. Hopefully an update fixes this soon.

    After a hard reset same result? bummer. Wonder if it is that new ebook store thing that messed it up? I bet next cumulative will fix if a hard reset did not.

    Things I've noticed with mine:

    Finger print scanner is hit and miss... more miss than hit.. becomes annoying after a while
    "Hey Cortana" is also more miss than hit, even after I "Trained" her to learn how I say hey Cortana.

    its a problem of whatsapp servers
    No it's not. It's a problem with the phone reading the qr code. I never had this problem with any other windows phone I've used...

    Matter of fact, I just tried my girlfriend's iPhone and it works. So definitely a problem with the phone/camera.

    You can see the camera keep trying to refocus all the time.

    Oh, sorry, I didn't know that. Updated my 950 2 days ago and didn't notice it. Hope MS will bring back that option in some future update.

    My T-Mo IDOL 4S is completely surrounded by no update. (Apologies to Onslow from 'Keeping Up Appearances' for borrowing his remark).

    The unlocked model can download the update. The updates are posted on Microsoft's catalog site. TMO-US has not been posted yet, so ya we are still waiting for that variant to get them pushed. Won't be long I bet.

    The reason I know this, is I changed my operator name to 000-11 and it started to download, but it fails because I had flashed the Tmobile ffu. So it cannot verify the hash on the packages or something.

    For the Finger print reader and other System level problems, has anyone tried a hard reset and confirmed that fixed any issues?

    Ialways perform a hard reset after an update so I can rule that out as I hard resetted after I updated to CU then set up without a backup

    I also have problems with the audio routing settings. Putting the phone up to my ear doesn't take the call off speaker.... nearly blew my ear drums a couple times...

    it's just really difficult getting it to function when moving the phone up to my ear and taking it on/off speaker

    I had issues with the proximity sensor too, but not shutting the phone screen off when moving it to my face.

    Are you on the Unlocked open Market FW? I have since flashed the T-Mobile fw and have not had that issue ironically. That is not a reason for anyone to go do it though...
