    so my X3 just had a strange update a couple of minutes ago, 12 am eastern time and I was wondering if anyone else got it. what was strange and its never happened to my X3 EVER is the screen went black and the was unresponsive for several minuts, I actually thought my phone got bricked! with my heart sinking to my gut I put it down and decided to give it time to do what it needed to do... and low and behold I got the HP logo back and then went dark for more several minutes and got the HP logo back again and now it is going through the 5 upgrade parts... and now its loaded up to win 10... but man it actually gave me a scare! so I'm letting people know what to expect and don't panic if the screen goes black for several looong miinutes... very strange this last update

    Having similar issue on 650 latest update. Hanged at Windows starting up screen. Need to pull out battery to reset before it resumes the usual steps of restoring...

    This has been happening with every update on my L830 for months now. The battery pull used to work but not anymore. Now it requires multiple soft resets. Several times it has stayed dead for more than 24 hours before inexplicably firing up again. Oh, the joys of Windows Phone. I should say Enough is Enough and get rid of it but I can't. It's still my favorite OS ever.
    Useless as a daily driver, so many apps that can't be updated and generally unreliable but still my favorite. It's always comforting to come to the forums to find there are lots more gluttons for punishment!!

    No issue with the update of my X3.
    On another topic, a warning, take extra extra care with your X3 to never drop it. The glass breaks easily even though it is supposed to be rated as a tough phone. I'm looking for a Verizon CDMA replacement and can't find any.
