    Two different posts have recently gone up describing the ongoing issues with Band 2 and the Lumia 950xl / 959 running windows 10 mobile. I'm certainly still having lots of issues, how about you?

    I'm ok for most things with my band2 and 950XL... it's been better, like the cortana button activates cortana better... notifications always been good for me.

    I don't really like replying on the band to stuff, so I'm not really good to speak about the keyboard but I guess it's not good cause I opened up text, hit reply and seems to be connecting forever. I'm also not a big voice dictation person.

    I find when when I open up cortana on my phone and then try that stuff it's working. So culprit...cortana not really on the background working well?

    So I guess that part is not great but everything else with the health app seems fine and notifications. It's what I care about.

    Pitiful that Band 2 and 950xl didn't excel together. Both flagships that are forgotten by MS.

    Correct, but they don't fully work together as detailed in these links.

    perhaps for you. called Microsoft for some support?

    mine talk perfectly. i dont use the insider preview, so if you run that, then of course you may have problems as its not production.

    I and many other have called support, gone to the store, tweeted for help, used the feedback app, emailed support... They know it's a problem, they admit it. They don't have a fix

    Count yourself lucky that it works for you. Many of us are not having a good experience.

    I had problems before trying the insider program and went to release preview to see if it helped at all, which it didn't.

    I'm in the same boat. If they know it is an issue, and it had been going on this long, they need to issue a recall or have a fix within a week.

    Windows Phone.... Rebuilding since 2010.
