    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...
    Yup. Got it off amazon.

    Same here, off Amazon. There are other things slightly different with the T-Mobile ffu that I like. The proximity issue non-existent is one of them.

    Would you kindly list those things that you like about the T-Mobile firmware?
    I had many failed attempts with the open market firmware, and this current software 15063.251 has many issues. I hope it's fixed by tomorrow's update or otherwise, i will flash to T-Mobile. Would you think that will affect the reception or bands in any way? I live in Australia.
    Cheers

    I am actually doing a RMA exchange through T-Mobile because of the proximity sensor issue. I have already tried using WDRT to reflash my T-Mobile branded device and I still have the issue on 14393.1066.

    The problem only occurs occasionally, only when my phone has been asleep for a while, and when someone calls me. The touch screen is sometimes laggy at the same time when trying to swipe up to answer the phone. I think there is something wrong with the sensors waking up from a sleep state. I also have the SD card unmounting issue.

    I think it's a hardware issue, since I also had a bunch of issues when I tried to update to CU through Release Preview to see if it resolved the problem (it didn't). It seems most people have stable devices on CU (not sure if they are open market or T-Mobile branded).

    It could affect the LTE bands most definitely. I would not flash it if I were you. I had to do much 'hackery' to this T-Mo FW to get AT&T to work perfectly for it.

    Honestly, that was the only major quirk I had with the phone. But it would only do this if I answered a call while the screen was pin locked.

    FYI: the new update rolling out now is 15063.297

    Just received the CU on my T-Mobile Idol 4s...Update was smooth. Did a hard reset without restore after the update was finished. So far so good...just hoping the SD card dismount issue is fixed.

    Mine installed without issue, seems to be working and haven't done a hard reset yet! (We'll see if it needs it.)

    Just a quick question guys. Has anyone seen this> 'Also remove provisioned content from my workplace', when doing a factory reset? I haven't seen this on any Lumias before. Thanks

    Thanks for that.
    I installed this build. Sadly it hasn't fixed the previous bugs. I think they usually focus on PC in patch Tuesdays more than mobile

    Sure enough it is up on Microsoft's catalog update site too Everyone should be able to get the update pushed now for the T-mobile model by checking for updates..

    My T-mo is getting what I believe is the CU now: 10.0.15063.297. Of course, the real and complete Creator's Update will be later this year in the Redstone3. ;-)

    Update: Seems faster.

    Yes twice actually, in this build and previous one. Without backup as well. I see many issues listen in other Lumias and in my household also.

    I just got a replacement T-Mobile variant Idol 4S. I updated to 15063.297 and hard reset without restoring. I am still getting flashing screen when starting camera or rotating to landscape video. My proximity sensor when taking calls from lock screen still doesn't work. I haven't tested SD card unmounting issue because I stopped using SD cards after being frustrated with it unmounting all the time.

    It cost $20 to get the warranty replacement, so I don't want to try this again. It seems only a few people are having these issues, so I am not sure if I am unlucky, but I am going to stay away from OEM vendors like Acatel in the future.

    Have the same issue its a bug with the creators update I believe or either Alcatel needs to push a firmware fix for this

    Not sure why u had to pay $20 for a warranty replacement, it only costs $5

    ProShot does not have the screen flashing issue...launches right to the camera. So...yeah, looks like an update is needed. Of course, ProShot has crashing issues...so, its not a replacement either.

    I have two issues since the update. One is that the proximity sensor is basically not working and my cheek keeps dialing the phone in the middle of my call. The second issue is when using Word flow (or whatever it is being called now) is totally leaving out words. The predictive text was already bad enough, but this compounds the problem. I didn't have either of these issues before the update. Other than that, I haven't noticed any issues (except the already mentioned camera screen flash) or even any differences.

    I believe most of these issues are with the software rather than the phone hardware. These issues I have not seen in 14393.1066. It's tempting to go to the 15213 update, as it is fast ring and may cause other issues, but the known issues listed are not big.

    That "clic" sound happens on the 950 and XL as well. I thought it was from the camera optics or something

    So are most of the issues fixed now or is there still flaws in the device with the new update?
