    I just received the shipping notice for the dock about 5 minutes ago. Says it's shipping by FedEx, but there are no tracking details yet. I didn't think those were going to be shipping for a while. I'm pleasantly surprised to see that it's coming so quickly.

    My Bell LTE NFC sim is working - but it is a new sim card that was initialized on Wednesday. My old ATIV S had a larger sim card so I had to get a new nano sim after I received the phone.

    Calydus said it worked data wise:



    I'm not convinced simply swapping out sim is enough, I think need to initialize the phone with the SIM. The fact I had to do it like that with my 930, no matter what I did manually is why I keep thinking that way. Would've hoped windows10 handled it better but I guess not! Any chance with a Rogers SIM because I know that should work :D
    Yeah well I don't think I could manage to INITIALIZE it with a Rogers sim, one thing I can try is just popping one in.

    However a friend of mine is on Videotron too and has the same issues as me.
    That's sooooo weird.

    Woke up this morning to a shipment notification for my Lumia Display dock! :) It's on it's way!
    Stephen, when you ordered the dock did the order page give you a price of $129 + tax? Cause that's what I'm seeing and so far no opportunity to enter in the promotional code. I'm afraid if I click "Complete Purchase" my credit card will be charged. What happened when you ordered?

    Mine is dual (which I like), but I can understand that a lot of people don't want that. If you're only ever going to use one sim it's kind of annoying to have to see a little number 1 on your text and dialer tiles.

    I think everyone got dual SIM phones, but who cares, think of it as an extra feature!

    And as for making the icon's disappear, I think I read on another thread you can link the phone and messaging apps so it only shows one.

    Same here, working fine. Gonna try a Bell SIM later today.

    So far I've seen people mention 'Telus L', 'Rogers L', and mine says 'Bell L'. I'm assuming those are all LTE. According to the WillMyPhoneWork site the 950 and 950 XL should both get 4G LTE on Telus, Rogers, and Bell.

    It barely keeps up if at all with all the app updates!

    I'm not sure though I have the optimal position though
    Same. I'm trying to figure out what's the best position for charging.

    FWIW, last night the phone only charged up to about 30-40%, likely due to bad positioning. Thankfully the wall charger brought it up to 80% in about 1/2 hour.

    Just got mine and the Display Dock too ! :-)

    Transferred almost everything from my old Lumia 930. Some old Nokia apps don't work and are disabled.

    It won't charge on my Nokia DT910 Wireless Charging Stand - not sure why? - It does work when I place the phone horizontal but does not if I place it vertically/Portrait.

    Its a little bigger than I thought but other than that its awesome

    FYI - Yorkdale now has the demo units back on display at the 'Continuum' station.

    Question - anybody upgrade from 920 to 950 XL? Would you say the upgrade is worth it? As old as the 920 is, I still don't mind it. But I would love to get a new phone but only if it's worth it. (I know 'worth it' is subjective to each person lol.. but love to hear people's personal opinion)

    Yeah, I asked to see the demo units first before I purchased yesterday from that store. It was interesting that they're displaying the 830 and 650XL everywhere but only two 950XL... (I guess unlocked phone price does make a difference in their promotion)

    And yes that would be me! I've waited 3 years for this flagship windows 10 mobile phone to finally come out, so I'd say it's definitely worth it. My L920 has been through a lot and I loved it to death, but it's about time. It had a few quite major problems: sim card sometimes disconnect randomly, front facing camera was virtually unusable because of the heavy dusts inside, and just general slow down of the phone and can't catch up to the new apps/games and even the new OS (after resets). As you mentioned, worth it or not is very subjective, but personally I would recommend anyone with 920 or 1020 (WPs around the time of 2012-2013) to upgrade to 950 or 950XL, these are great phones and truth to be told if even we don't support them, the OS is really going to slowly die away. So don't wait for the "possible" Surface Phone and get on board with the Windows 10 flagships!

    you can link your phone and sms in the options so this doesn't happen.

    I have two wishes, a 950XL isn't on that wish list; and money can't buy it either, if it could I'd have it yesterday.

    Couple of things to ask here.

    Anyone got dual sim working yet? I have Telus and Bell SIMs in the phone. If I only put one of them in they work fine including LTE. If I put both in, I can only get one of them working at a time. The second SIM goes into Emergency only mode, and if someone tries to call me they get voicemail immediately. I can even go into SIM settings and tell the phone to switch to data on the other SIM but the same thing happens. The SIM that no longer has data activated goes into emergency mode and won't allow calls. Anyone else having this problem?

    Second thing. I went to Yorkdale yesterday and picked up a 950 for my wife. It has dual SIM as well. I thought only the 950 XL was dual SIM?

    Wow. I can't believe how many people have hung on to the 920 for so long. I went from the 920 to the 1020 two years ago, which was a nice upgrade in itself, but upgrading to the 950 XL (from the 1020) is a much bigger upgrade. It's slim, light and looks much more modern. I like that the face is all black as compared to my yellow 1020. Looks really sharp.

    Haven't tried using both sims yet, but I plan to. Hopefully I don't have the same problem you're having.

    If you're not getting an L beside your carrier name the first thing you should do is .

    Go to settings all.
    Network and wireless.
    Mobile and sim.
    Scroll down to blue Sim 1 settings.
    Scroll down to Mobile Operator settings.
    There is an Update Settings selection just below that.
    Press it.
