    My Update Advisor would not upgrade to Upgrade Advisor, so uninstalled & reinstalled. Ran the app, it asked permission to receive the update after telling me my Blu WinHD LTE x150q qualified for the update ....

    Downloaded and installed the update last night ...... download was slow due the zillion DL's that were probably going on, and then the upgrade itself took a good hour .... once installed, when going through the "setting up your apps" phase it did seem to get stuck on one app for a long time. A power down and restart corrected that.

    So phone is now on Win10 ... there was a small update also installed this morning ....

    So now the fun begins ..... all email accounts have to be redone as the mail app is now the same universal app as on Win10 so it was a blank .... and there is a wonky problem with my Microsoft Band 2 only sort of working ... I will unregister/reregister it to see if that helps ....

    So far does not seem any slower or faster than it was before, but haven't really had a chance to play with it much yet !!

    Ohhh and I did get the second update overnight ....

    OK so after using it for a few hours, I have found that it is running warm ..... it is using too much power right now ...

    I unplugged it from its charger at 630am and at 130pm had to plug it back in as I was down to 7% power ...

    Outlook lost 3 out of 4 email accounts that I had configured through it. It is not syncing contact info properly either, likely due to loosing accounts.

    I am trying to use it as I normally would throughout a day. I had it as an active hotspot for my tablet for about an hour this morning and it has been Bluetooth paired to my Band2 all day.

    When I got to 10% battery, I turned off BT and put it in to batter saver till I could get to a charger which was not until an hour later, which means I went through 90% of my charge in 6 hours !! from 6:30 to 12:30

    So there def needs to be some fixes coming quick for this or I will have to revert, can't have it dying halfway through a work day on me, ad dropping accounts. This phone is my daily driver, so if not stable it's back to Win 8.1.

    But it is day one .... I'll play with it over the weekend and see how it goes .....

    Thanks whoever merged the threads. The first post discusses how to update from at least .107 to .164. It may work for .71 as well.

    Mine was stuck on .71 so I changed it to Production last night. Manually had it check for updates just now after coming home from work and it's downloading .164.

    So it looks like it was indeed Bluetooth that sucked the life out of the battery.

    Turning off BT cooled the phone right down and stopped the crazy battery drain.

    So in my case it may have been BT in combination with a Microsoft Band2 and their communication, or it was just the BT .... don't know for sure, but better that folks know there is an issue ...

    Already reported via MS feedback forum.

    I only got mine to update to .164 after opting 'in' to the Insider, then checking for updates <nothing>. Then I went back into Insider and opted for 'Production' then checked for updates and .164 came after a few tries of checking for updates.
    Yeah :(

    Edit: After 1hr and 10-15 search for updates .164 finally appears!!! Thx for your help! :)

    I think swamped servers is right.

    I started my BLU upgrading after midnight here so 1AM east of me, 11PM west.

    Upgraded to 10586.107 with no issue and minimum wait. Setup as generic user not signed in on Msft Acct. Updated to .164 right away. Factory Reset and back in the box to sell.

    Easy peasy on my end.

    Once I noticed my BLU WIN HD LTE was on the eligible list, I installed the update adviser app, went through the checks, and the phone is now installing the software update, I believe
    10586.164. Since it will leave me without a phone for the time it takes to upgrade, I powered off the phone and removed the SIM card, then Placed it in my Nokia 520 , insider phone.. I
    won't be left without a phone in case of an emergency. The BLU
    phone is not installing the build. After the build installs on the BLU phone, according to Windows Central app updates will be
    coming to the phone, don't know how long that's going to take.

    You do have to check the store to see if there are any updates. This was something I noticed with newer builds. Sometimes the updates won't install.

    Now the Windows Central app has 2 versions: 8.1 and 10. So if you want to use the Windows 10 version you have to install it from the store. The 8.1 app doesn't update to the 10 app.

    downloaded and running fine, only two things battery life is short after 8hours of moderate use battery was at 40%, and second is more of a question really has any one been able to figure out how to enable "hey, Cortana" or even if it's available.

    No, it was the same for 8.1. "Hey Cortana" was never enabled for the BLU WIN HD LTE. It's a battery drain on my Laptop anyway, I assume it would be similar on the phone.

    You can Hold the "Search Key" while it's on the locked screen to get her though.

    My BLU WIN HD LTE was just upgraded to Windows 10 , through the APP Adviser, Cortana is working, however with the volume at 10, I can just barely hear it. The phones volume was louder, when on 8.1.
    It works fine with the ear phones.

    Yeah, who knows...my upgrade, while successful, didn't truly work right until I did a hard reset today. (I never had the people list on the left side of my messages app when viewing text messages until today.) Just a lot of weirdness for me.

    Successfully updated my BLU WIN HD LTE (Canada) x150q version.

    1. You have to get the Upgrade Advisor App manually from any of the browser links. Open it up in the Store App and then install it. Open the App, and click "Check Update". It'll tell you an update is available for your phone and you'll have to click the "Enable" checkbox to allow your phone to get it.
    2. Then go to the Settings > Update on your phone, and it'll tell you an Update is available. Click Update. It'll "Download" and "Prepare" the update for like 10-15min.
    3. It'll restart the phone, and go into the "Gears" spinning for about 25m.
    4. It'll restart again, and show the BLU initial screen, then restart again, and show the BLU initial screen again and go into an "Almost Done..." window where it says migrating your data for about 10m.
    5. Your phone will start into Windows 10 Mobile for the first time! The About window states you'll have OS Build: 10.0.10586.107.
    6. You will want to go to Setting > Update again and check for Updates. It'll say there is another update to update you to 10.0.10586.164. Once you search for Updates, it'll automatically start downloading it saying "This update can help make your phone work even better". It'll "Download" this second update and "Prepare" for about 15-20mins.
    7. It'll say a restart has been scheduled for you phone. Click the "Restart now" button.
    8. It'll restart the phone, and go into the "Gears" spinning again for about 20m.
    9. It'll go into the "Almost Done..." window where it says migrating your data for about 10m again...
    10. Your phone will start into Windows 10 Mobile for the second time! The About window states you'll have OS Build: 10.0.10586.164. Go and check for "Updates" one last time to confirm you have all the latest updates.
    11. After you are on the latest OS Build, go to the Store App, click the "Check for Updates" inside the Store App and update all the Apps. (After a "Clean Reset", I had 27 App updates to perform).

    And about 2h from the start of the process, you'll have Windows 10 Mobile, version 10.0.10586.164 on your BLU WIN HD LTE.

    Initial Impressions... everything seems very snappy and smooth. I'm liking it. Playing with the Settings now.


    NOTE: After the upgrade some of my settings were messed up a bit (like brightness and such). I did a factory reset after I was on the latest Windows 10 Mobile version. Go to SYSTEM > ABOUT > RESET YOUR PHONE to wipe everything and start from a "clean" Windows 10 Mobile state. If you do Reset your phone, it'll do one last restart into the "Gears" screen and take about 10m. Then it'll start into the initial W10M Setup Wizard. If you do this, and can't log into your microsoft account, try to type the ".com" out manually, and don't use the ".com" button from the keyboard. This caused issues with me not being able to login. After your Clean Reset go to the Store App and search for Updates. I had 27 App updates after a Clean Reset.

    NOTE: I was able to get the .164 update without going into any Insider Ring or anything. I am not a member of the Insider Program.
    Thanks for this post. This is what I did and now I have Windows Mobile 10 running quite nicely on my BLU Win HD LTE. So far so good.
