    Thanks a lot Mathew... :-) For those Verizon users... Somehow in the last 2 weeks my BAP started back up either with one of the updates or I mistakenly allowed it to download from the Store. Anyway, I did a hard reset and spent 4 hrs. setting everything back up again but.... I assume it will go back to <1% like it was but so far, NO BAP battery use. So, a hard reset, though a real pain to set back up, does still work to get rid of BAP if it starts eating your battery. I'll report back in a view days with 15226 overall performance.

    Any feedback yet. Because I about through this phone into a river today. It seems like every time a new build comes out my phone immediately needs like 12 soft resets the next day. I noticed the battery was constantly inaccurate or not moving until a reset. I also had a lot of mms message problems also today. I can't handle these frustrations anymore 😤. This phone has become so unreliable lately.

    I wouldn't upgrade yet to 15226. I'm having data issues and many soft resets still needed, just like you. Now I wish I had stayed on 15063 which was working fine. Give me a few more days to work with it.

    Also, although its a real pain and takes 4 hrs. to get everything/settings set back up, if you are having too many issue I suggest a hard reset and start over. I did that yesterday and battery life is now way better.

    So glad AT&T doesn't have that BAP thing.
    As for build 15226, still under eval. Battery % still off, but not as bad. Only dropped 9% thru a reboot today. Haven't even tested screen auto bright. Still had screen rotation issues on 15225, haven't seen that yet. Cortana still has some speech recognition stumbles, but operates okay. Although there are times she doesn't catch the first word dictated. Phones and texts work fine so far, even thru uconnect.
    (edit) only installed it last night....

    I'm really having mms problems. I basically have to reset my phone when ever I want to check for massages. I receive no notification or alert that it even came in. I get a download icon in my message box. But when you proceed to download it, it won't work. You then have reset the phone. Then download the messages.

    If your data is working ok, try setting up just a new MMS APN (versus setting up both) under your Sim settings.

    I have vzwinternet for mms and internet setup. I wonder if it could be background data usage settings.

    I only had that problem with one mms. Couldn't get it to download no matter what. Other than that, my messaging seems to work fine.

    A group message is also considered mms along with photos,links,etc.., and this is where the problem is, not with regular sms messages.

    Roger. Mine wasn't a group text, but I'm guessing it had an attachment.
    More build15226 notes. Screen rotation bug still present. Had to reboot the phone to get texts, Edge and photos to rotate. Didn't try other apps. Battery % bug still present, but not as dramatic as previous builds. There are % differences reboot to reboot also.

    Alot of battery problems seem to arise when trying to charge the phone. And I am thinking its when I don't use the HTC plug. I'm going to pay more attention to this, and the amperage on the different chargers i may use. Then I will report.
    I also remember hearing in the past about how some of the older phones will not move onto the creator builds do to (If remembered right) battery/charging/and or low power capabilities in the chips. I wonder if any of you can share your thoughts on that.

    I only use an HTC charger, so I haven't seen those issues. Doesn't fix the battery % stuff on reboot though. Also, had the screen rotation issue happen twice today.

    I haven't found any new issues with 15226 for those that want to update to it. Basically, same issues as before, as dave673 states. Nothing was fixed. Rotation issue needing reboot to fix, some reboots needed due to data not connecting when transitioning from Bluetooth back to phone, sometimes have to shut screen off/on to be able to hang up a phone call, self camera from a locked screen causes auto reboot (just unlock screen first then no problem). My hard reset to fix my BAP battery issues really helped; I now have great battery life which was also extended by turning off a bunch of needless background Apps.

    Side note; using One Note, anyone know how to adjust settings to be able to show sub-lists of items for each page on the main screen? I lost them during an update now only have all pages listed. Directions say to adjust under settings but the Phone App has no settings menu and I can't find a setting under my main web One Note account.

    Wayne, I am guessing you aren't referring to the sections tab, where you can list sets with different colored tabs? I can reach that with the left pointing arrow in the upper left corner, for those who aren't familiar with the update. I try to keep mine open to my personal notes (web) all the time. I like doing most of the setup on my laptop, then updating notes on my phone as needed...
    Still the same issues on build 15226. On one occasion Cortana wouldn't read a text via Uconnect.

    One other thing in build 15226. There are times when I hit the power button and nothing happens. I end up having to push it 3 times in order for the phone to wake up.

    15228 is rolling out and it seems Microsoft adressed some of our gripes with landscape flicker, Battery, and even rotation lock mention. I'm anxious to download this one. 😀

    15228 still has all the same problems as 15226 plus Bluetooth couldn't turn on/off; reset 3 times no help so left and 1/2hr later was able to finally turn Bluetooth back on. Other quick links wouldn't work but finally did. Other data issues causing numerous resets. I would not recommend moving up to 152278 if you don't have to.

    Im on 15228. I agree with the know real improvement, but I really haven't noticed it to be much worse either.

    All was well until the phone locked up today. Can't really point to anything that might have caused it. I did browse Facebook for a while today, took a couple short phone calls, and started answering some texts when the screen got locked. Cannot even get the phone to show the shut down if I hold the power button down. Pulled my sim card out and no change. Removing the sd card doesn't change things either. Guess I'll try a hard reset, and if that doesn't do the trick, I may be out of the game...
    One other thing. I was on the phone while taking some pictures of my storm shelter this am (to show a buddy), and sent the text with a picture while on the phone. But I don't think that'd cause the issue.
    Meanwhile, using the trusty ole Tilt2 again until I can figure things out.
    [edit] Held the power and vol down buttons down for about 20 seconds and the phone finally rebooted. But I already worked with AT&T to adjust to the Tilt2, so I guess I'll stay with it a few days...

    I also noticed that I can not connect to elm 327 adapter. (obdII interface for automotive computer diagnostic). It connects with the PC. But not my windows 10 phone. And yes I have used it many times before.

    I have lots of issues with 15228 needing soft resets or reboots regularly. Also adding Bluetooth connections is a joke again like it was in previous builds; don't know why they fix something and it comes back in new builds as if they are working on old builds while a new build is out.. crazy. I've tried to add my Alexa Bluetooth but after 20 tries, multiple auto-reboots and forced reboots due to locked screen, I gave up. It was running fine on 15063 before I did a hard reset which loses all Bluetooth connections so they all have to be set up again. My BMW was a struggle but finally got it set up but it doesn't list as Bluetooth (it's under Other), UConnect on Jeep and Challenger struggled but worked fine.

    Landscape still randomly sticks causing reboot to fix. Screen unresponsive needing reboot to fix. Opening Camera and selfie sometimes causes an auto-reboot, some issues with Maps but that might be the App? Screen Auto bright/dim is real funky changing randomly. Can't hang up from some phone calls without first locking then unlocking screen. Answering all calls has a 5+ second hesitation before I can hear the caller's voice (I say hello, hello, hello...then finally hear their voice). Sometimes can't even answer a call so the caller has to call again. Prob more issue but that's it from the top of my head.

    NOT happy with this build again. Should have stayed on 15063 which was generally fine.

    Well...Thats it. I finally have a 950 single sim coming in the mail. I will be switching to at&t. Good riddance to HTC and Verizon. And Microsoft is lucky I'm remaining loyal here because the lack of new phone options is a bit alarming.

    We have our HTC's set up as a 950 so do you think anything will change getting the actual 950 as it's still Windows 10 software? The good thing about leaving Verizon is no more BAP but if you manually don't allow BAP to install from the store it isn't an issue (if it does get installed, have to do a hard reset and start over). But, Verizon has the best service so.... Let use know if the 950 performs better than the converted HTC as I would also do that.

    Update to 15228, Bluetooth is very buggy all around. Hard to add new Bluetooth but if you can't, I've found if you just wait until the next day, it'll add. But, Bluetooth drops randomly during service or won't auto hook up to an established Bluetooth connection both requiring a reboot to fix.

    Wayne, I agree on the 15228 assessment. I end up rebooting about every other day. Even 15226 didn't have that issue. Phone and texts seems to lag when hanging up or using the back arrow. Bluetooth with Uconnect does get wonky sometimes.
    I enjoy this phone and WM. Sure hope they can iron this out soon.
