    I just received my three ne Lumia 650's from cricket wireless. I am coming from sprint and Lumia 635.
    Should I set up phones without sim cards or put in sim cards first than set up?
    Not sure if they have current firmware or not and if that makes a difference.

    Thank you

    I don't think SIM or no SIM makes ANY difference. As for current firmware or not, it doesn't matter. You'll still update them at some point.

    I agree with Xandros. I usually set up with the SIM because it allows for the MMS and APN to be set up together with the phone.

    Thank you. I set up one of them with my ms account but no sim installed.
    I then put in my active sim from another phone. I can make calls and data works but speed is slow. Settings say no apn for Lte and my phone number is blank.

    I checked the update again, it had updated to .321 earlier.
    Now it says win phone 8.1 is ready to be downloaded to ensure voicemail opperation when I plug in.

    What would cause a win 10 phone to download 8.1?

    do I have to hard reset and wait to put the sim in that I ordered with phone after I activate it?
    Thanks again.
