    Has anyone with a 640 XL gotten this update?

    It supposedly was released yesterday but I can't get it yet.

    Will the 640 XL be the last to get it again?

    I download and installed the AU yesterday, on an unlocked 640xl.
    The download was fast enough and the install was also ok. Then all my app's updated.
    I haven't had time to check out the new features yet, as I'm really busy at work

    Well I'm glad to hear people are getting it.

    I tried yesterday and twice today but nothing.

    I got mine from AT&T.

    What version shows up when you look after the update?

    Which error/text you see during AU ?

    It just says it is up to date at ( and gives the time ).

    It's aggravating to know a new update is out and day after day goes by and it doesn't show up on my phone.
    My desktop got it but my phone won't ... at least not yet.
    But it seems that the 640 XL is the < always > the last to get any updates. But some people seem to have gotten it.
    I know there are a lot of phones to be updated but, since it's Windows, I wonder how many phones really are out there.

    I would say that it has nothing really to do with your phone being a 640xl and everything to do with it being an ATT variant. It was states that the update would be going out to unlocked devices first and then carrier locked in a couple of weeks.

    Search windows insider in the windows store. Download the app. Select Release ring.. It's easy as that. If you wait for AT&T, it may take several more months. There are 3 options when you install windows insider. Fast, Slow, & Release Ring. Release Ring is the most stable release. As of today it is build 14393.82 I believe that is the latest stable update of WAU

    My Lumia 930 haven't got the update yet. After doing some research I learned that my device is carrier locked to Optus. Maybe that's the reason I am not getting the AU. Now, I am desperately seeking the way of unlocking my device. Please, if anyone knows how to do it, then let me know. Thanks!

    Not sure that would be an AT&T problem. My Lumia 950 updated yesterday. It is an unlocked AT&T phone. Not factory unlocked. To be honest, I was surprised to see it!!

    Just use Insiders App, Release Preview Ring. It works flawlessly on 640XL and battery life is fantastic

    Great Expect a lot of Store app updates.
    I was on the insiders fast ring till the AU update, I then decided to take a break and enjoy the AU for a few weeks.
    Damm the Version 1607 is up-dating apps every few hours, a lot of the new UWP apps are starting to up-date in the Store.
    And I wanted a quite week or so.

    Had mine a few days now on my 640 XL it's brilliant. Maybe its the operator. They aren't pushing it to your device yet. It's supposed to be non carrier reliant but in your case it looks the case.

    Hi,
    I followed your huge post on buying the 640 Xl.
    Glad to see your still have it.
    I bought mine way before you, but as I was on windows 10 insiders fast ring and it was Hell for awhile, I almost feck me and the phone out of the window, Windows be dammed.
    As I was saying the 640 XL was "WTF did I buy a huge phone for" I am losing it, I need bigger pockets"
    But, there is always a but.
    I awoke one day and was reading the News, it was so crisp an clear on the 5.7 inch 1080p screen, I thought, this I am comfortable with and the bigger size phone makes no difference to me.
    Using Windows 10 on the 640 XL is a joy, Nice 13 MP main camera and a 5mp front for Skype or checking you TV remote
    Windows 10 is so easy to use, swipe up/down left or right, simple easy and fast. super fast!
    When I show pictures or Videos from my phone, every body and I do mean every person will say.
    is this the new iPhone.
    Questions of what cloud do I use, WTF, I have a 128 class 10 micro sd.
    The 640 XL is the un-sung hero of the 2015 windows smart phone.
    I want a Surface Phone.
    Enjoy

    I have had (among others) the iphone 4, 1020, 930, 950XL, iphone 6 Plus and now 640XL.

    The 640XL is the best device of all. I was surprised especially by how much better it is than heavily spec'd 950XL, which overheated, crashed, resumed, had a 5 hour battery, an unstable camera that froze up, and a miserably creaky case - 640XL is the real flagship.

    My 640 XL is a good phone --- but my next phone will be Android.

    Microsoft refuses to give us tap to pay. They put out a Wallet app that is totally useless. You can only put your store reward cards in it. It doesn't use your bank information for tap to pay. Whoever ordered / approved this app should have it shoved up their ***. Totally useless.

    If Samsung and Apple can do Tap To Pay --- why can't Microsoft and why does Microsoft refuse to implement Tap To Pay?

    Yep not enabling tap to pay for 640XL and others is ridiculous. Tweet this to @donasarkar

    I got the same build here in the Philippines, carrier locked.

    I did not join Insider program though.

    So far I see FB is is some sort of blinking and the message preview bug on FB Messenger came back.

    Liking the features on Windows 10 mobile and the anniversary update so far.
    There are some crashes after every few days and sometimes the phone restarts without warning.
    But its good i guess. 🤔
