    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?
    If you are using both telus and rogers at the same time, you have to make the telus sim the one that uses data, because telus do not have a 2G network for the sim to connect too when the rogers sim is used as the data sim. for bell you would have to check if their 2G network is compatible with this phone.

    Before I though 34 millions Canadians , only me in Canada love Lumia Windows phone , I was wrong :)))
    You're several years and a 1.8 million out of date. There is a free app in the Windows Store called Population Clock you may want to download :)

    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.
    You'd be surprised how many people are still on their 920 here in Canada :-) It was (and still is) a beast of a phone compared to the competition (especially at it's launch time).

    The Microsoft Store at Square One (in Mississauga) has lots of 950 XL units on display now.

    Unlike the Yorkdale and Eaton Centre stores, this one had lots of black and white demo units on display in addition to the Continuum display and even had a dedicated rep by the phones teaching people about 950/XL. This store was definitely pushing more for it. Very cool. I was comparing the XL beside my 920, and I didn't notice any drastic speed improvements to be honest except for the camera which was BLAZING fast. The screen on my 920 looks disgustingly bad now when I looked at it beside the 950 XL. I also couldn't believe how light it was, I was scared I was gonna drop it lol. My only issue with the 950XL vs 920 is I feel the the back material feels a bit cheaper compared to the 920's casing. I thought they were the same material, but maybe it's just a different thickness of the same material? I'm definitely gonna take the plunge and order one of these bad boys.

    For me I did enjoy the looks of 920 and 1020 it definitely stood out back in those days and maybe even today. The 950XL looks great but the whole front look is not as distinguishable as the older models I find, meaning if ppl didn't see the Microsoft logo or the back of the phone, they wouldn't know you're using a lumia/windows phone, but that's just my personal take on it, I still love the look of this phone nonetheless.

    Also I think the weight of this phone is PERFECT. And by that I mean it's not heavy and it's not overly light. When I kept hearing from people how light as feather it is, I was getting a bit worried because personally I like my phone to have some weight to it so it feels more sturdy in the hand and you don't feel like you're gonna drop it by accident or crush it easily, especially being a larger-sized phone. So yeah I was pleasantly surprised by how well-balanced the weight and the size is.

    wow that's a pretty decent chunk of our population. I thought it'd be a lot more less than that.

    Lumia 920 was and is and might still be a great phone even after three years , especially compare to and high end android released the same time as Lumia 920. Those Android phone stop function good after a year, and definitely no longer any OS/firmware updates. But We have almost the latest Win10 on Lumia. And that is why we choose to stay with WP and Lumia

    Anybody managed to make their MMS work? I know it's a little bit off topic, but I'm Canadian, using it on Videotron, I can send MMS but can't receive it, and the carrier doesn't give any **** about it.
    you cannot for the life of you get MMS to work properly on videotron, that is the same for my L1520 also, this is a problem on videotrons end and not the phone... I think. videortron CS tried every trick in the book to get MMs working on my L1520 (spent and hour!) properly and no can do!

    I purchased it rferrara90, as in the past I have ran over my phone with a truck and then there was the Mulcher incident. As well, there was the time I sat on my Blackberry. I'm 270lbs+, so once can only image the result of that. I found it worth it, but then I am in a profession that is, at times, hard on cell phones. I also bought the grey Jack Spade case and the screen cover. I think it's worth it, as its important to protect my investment from myself and equipment onsite.

    I picked up a dual sim white 950XL with the grey Jack Spade case and screen cover, yesterday. So far the phone is working very well and I am enjoying it. I did have difficulty initially trying to install my Telus email. I changed my password twice before it would function. Everything works well now and the battery, so far, is doing well. I played with it on and off today with the change lasting all day. I don't play games on my phone and rarely do I listen to music on it. The screen is absolutely beautiful. It is a huge step up, in my opinion, from the 1020 and other phones I have, that include Blackberrys and Samsungs.

    I find the phone very light and thin, but not to the point of it being so flexible that it might break or crack in my pocket, if I lean over, etc... It's actually quite a sturdy phone that fits in my jeans, with no issues. I like the white colour. With the grey Jack Spade cover it looks professional and sleek, not out of place, in the work place. As I mentioned, it is a large phone, but I don't find this detracts from me using it on a daily basis. I will most likely pick up a Mozo cover at some point. The cost of all this though gave my wife some concern for my sanity... The 950XL will be my daily driver for many years to come. Thus far I really like the phone. Its exactly what I have been looking for, for the last three years...

    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)
    I've ordered a 950XL to replace my 920 which actually works perfectly after 3 years, numerous drops and even running over with a 250 wheelchair. Still I've saved my money for this new phone especially to upgrade the camera and video to 4K .

    I understand that only one SIM can be used for data at a time but my problem is that phone calls aren't going through on the other SIM. Why would the data settings affect the phone calls?

    I got my 9050xl on Thursday 26 Nov, put my nano sim from Bell into it started it up and no problem. Get LTE connection no problem. The only problem I have is that it eats battery. I never have enough battery left to last a whole day (16 Hrs). It used 8 % (7.5 hrs) just sitting on the table over night, while my iPhone 6s plus used 0%. The phone has use 24 % in four hours this morning with very little use. It seems to use 6% battery an hour even when it is not is use.

    I haven't had any battery issues. In fact, no issues at all. My only complaint/disappointment is that Windows Hello requires you to put the phone right up to your face, like within 30 cm. I think I'll probably disable that feature and just use a PIN.

    which network sim are you using for the non data or 2nd sim. I have to have telus as my primary data sim and rogers as my 2G sim because telus do not have a 2G network. So lets say you have the telus sim as your 2nd sim it will not connect to anything because there is no network to connect too.

    Why disable it when they aren't mutually exclusive? You can still enter your pin every time no? :)

    Got mine on the 25th... I got soom issues with the setup. I solved most of them with a reset and NOT restoring from a backup. But my Bluetooth isn't perfect and the it doesn't recognize my DT-903.

    I didn't order it. I wanted to but its not in my price range atm. I would have been happy with a 2 year contract like I had with my lumia1020. It is unfortunate for me that I must buy out the phone I want. Didn't with my last lumias. It is a let down from microsoft and telus.

    Yes, you can still enter your pin anyway, but it's kind of annoying to have the screen say "Trying to recognize you" or "Move closer". I always feel like I'm interrupting if I lose my patience and start entering a PIN.

    Hahah, I totally understand where you're coming from. Just for fun, I tried to beat 'Windows Hello' with entering my pin, in the end, the recognition feature beat me 4/5 times, so if you are at the right range, it works quite fast :)

    I have a Bell sim as my second sim. Bell is essentially the same network as Telus so I think that may be the problem. I will find someone else who has a Rogers sim that I can try in the phone.

    Well the weird story about this, is that I poped in an Bell LTE sim and it didn't work either... so that's why I was wondering... Because they have all those androids phone they only swear by those because they work...

    I couldn't agree more! I am not in a financial position at this time to buy this phone outright either. Pathetic that there is no carrier partner in this country! I thought at least Rogers would step up. I'll save my pennies and try to get another year out of my 1020 and we'll see then. Be sure to hit up ATrogershelps on social media. Let them know how disappointing this is.
