    I've never had any updates since .164 the "Production" build. Doesn't matter what I've tried either.

    To be honest, the last time I looked and .218 wasn't there for me on any of the rings (yesterday), I turned mine off and put it away. I've given up and am using my GS6.

    Super frustrated at the mess and just going to take a break...tired of fighting an uphill battle.

    .218 will only show on the release preview ring, as it is a threshold build 10586 update. Fast and slow rings currently point to Redstone builds.

    The thing is you don't have to try all 3.

    Open Windows Insider app > press the ... (bottom right of screen) and click about
    It will tell you 'Preview builds:' and the ring you are in.
    Does it say 'release preview'?
    I'm thinking perhaps the ring isn't changing.

    I just tried it on my L930, it did a reboot but when I checked for updates it just downloaded 10.0.14322.1000 (no configuration update).

    Yep, I know all about the 'about' settings to review what ring I'm in...and no still not getting it. Its a MS thing with Blu devices on the Insider Preview, I have no doubt we're blocked at certain times vs. our Lumia cousins.

    Well sorry for asking.

    I doubt that, I have seen other users (with Lumia phones) posting the same thing.

    One fix that I have seen people use is to reset the phone using WDRT and then try the upgrade again.
    You could also try the official upgrade using the 'upgrade advisor' app from WP8.1.
    They are just my suggestions though.

    You're inferring a 'tone' in my response where there was none. However, we have seen the Insider ring & updates held back from our models before...so MS definitely can and does exclude models when they need to.

    But in any event...I'll apparently not see the latest release. Not sure now the x150q is out, while the x150e is...eh...whatever.

    I'm not on any of the Insider rings, but I got the .218 update on my x150e when it came out.

    I got the .218 update by switching to the Production ring. This is the only "ring" that works for me.

    I'm in the same boat as you guys. I got .218 finally with the "Production" ring, but I have been unable to get any build higher than that so far. I've tried every ring (slow, fast, release) with no change (verified in the about screen). I've reset the phone enough times, I've almost memorized the entire setup process and button location that I could do it blindfolded.

    I have a feeling that it's either an error on MS side on the update servers, or someone may have found a show stopper error with this phone and MS is holding back the updates till a fix is found. Personally I think it's the first one.

    FYI for anyone else, just wanting to get to .218 from WP8.1 here are the steps I used to finally get to it.
    1. Register as an Insider (insider.microsoft.com) if you haven't already done it.
    2. Make sure you have a backup image of your phone on your OneDrive account.
    3. Download the "Windows Device Recovery Tool" (aka WDRT) (http://windows.microsoft.com/en-us/w...overy-tool-faq) to make sure you get the newest firmware and WP8.1 SP2 (for some unknown reason my phone never got the newest firmware on it's own, but was able to get WP8.1 SP2).
    4. Run the WDRT, you may have to manually select which phone you have as it doesn't always find the Blu Win HD LTE. Follow the on screen instructions.
    5. Setup your phone and select the proper restore image.
    6. Verify your phone and apps are updated.
    7. Download the Upgrade Advisor from the app store and run it to get WM10 .164
    8. Verify that all updates for the phone and apps have been installed after you get WM10
    9. Download the Windows Insider app from the store.
    10. Run the Insider app and select the slow ring, and let the phone reboot on it's own.
    11. After reboot, go check for OS updates (it will most likely say you are current).
    12. Run the insider app and now select "Production" (yes it says to "Stop Insider Preview Builds"), follow the prompts and let the phone reboot again.
    13. After reboot, wait a bit, then go check for OS updates. It should find an update that will bring you to .218

    Once I went to the Production ring, yeah, mine updated to .218. I just find it odd, WM10 that is, WP 8.1 was great in that it 'just worked' day in and day out...no reboots needed, it was rock solid. WM10, I'm having to fight to keep it working...complete opposite from 8.1. Bummed about that...8.1 was something special.

    Same here! I installed the Insider Preview app yesterday evening, switched to the "Fast Ring", and it downloaded 10.0.14328.1000 for me as well! It seems pretty stable, and snappier! What I really love is, that you can finally change the search engine from Bing to Google for example.

    To change the search engine: Open Edge, press the "..." in the bottom right, go to "Settings", then "Advanced Settings", and there's an option called "Search in the address bar with". Open that.

    Have any of you noticed any quirky bugs related to just the Win HD LTE besides the normal insider build problems?

    My phone was dead so I put it in airplane mode to charge quicker, i didnt turn it off for the upgrade and it wouldn't allow me to turn cellular back on. I had to hard reset which I planned on doing anyways. Also the quick actions in notification center act a bit laggy for me.
