    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!
    So I confirm it works out of the box with a Rogers sim... god damnit. This is so annoying.

    I posted this question somewhere else too, but I figured it might be better to ask my fellow Canadians. Does anybody know if the 950 XL will work on the Wind network?

    I wanna get a second line and Wind is the cheapest.

    Wind is not reliable; it's affordable that's all that can be said about Wind. Since most high end Windows Phone 1520 (discontinued) 950XL have to be bought, I'd recommend Bell.

    Yes it works on Wind. Just verified it. Had to go into settings to manually update and search for network but it works. Used an active Wind sim and accessed the internet. It shows compatible specs in the listings also.

    I got mine from the Yorkdale mall on TO on Wednesday evening. First rep I spoke to said that they didn't have any units left, only if people didn't pick up their pre-orders would they be able to sell them. Wondered around the store for a while, played with a demo unit and another rep spoke to me and I asked about the 950 (originally wanted that but it appears to be delayed to the point they had no idea when it was coming) then just said "you've got none of the XL's left?" to which he replied "I've got a couple", so my immediate response was "I'll take one".

    Had a micro-sim, so I needed to get it cut at a case vendor in the middle of the mall (neither MS store nor Rogers store had a cutter) and it worked fine. Rogers sim when straight in and all was working.

    I'm moving from a Samsung ATIV-S (and a Focus before that), so I'm familiar with the Win Phone Ecosystem, but this is my first experience of Win Phone 10. At the moment I have to say that the Win 10 interface is actually appealing more to me as a phone interface than it is a PC interface, certainly seems more put together to me. Universal apps are fantastic - I love that the XBOX or Solitaire apps are seemless (even the same version number) between Win 10 on the PC and Phone, I hope we see a lot more devs take advantage of this. My one gripe so far is that there are no achievement notifications for XBOX enabled apps built for prior versions of Win Phone, we currently only get notifications for achivements that appear via the XBOX app (which are cloud based on XBOX One / Win 10).

    I only realised through looking around here that the dock was available for free, but am currently stuck not being able to put my order in because its out of stock - somewhat poor service from MS there, at least let us register our names in the queue...

    Ya, I ran into the out of stock issue also, but keep checking several times a day. I only had to wait a day before they were in stock again.

    You said you had to get your sim "cut"? What do you mean by that?

    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.
    I'm pretty sure Bell 2G does not have support on the 950's, so that probably is the problem, Rogers is the only Canadian carrier I believe that will work as the 2nd sim running 2G on these phones.

    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.
    The dual sim have a cat4 lte for 150 mpbs rather than cat6 lte 300 mbps.

    I can confirm that as true now. I borrowed a Rogers sim from someone at work, plugged it in and fired up the phone and everything worked as expected. Calls came in on both sim's.

    No MS store in the peg so you'll have to drive from Winnipeg to St.Paul Minnesota. Only an eight hour drive. Just be sure to call ahead.

    Ya, unfortunately these phones are hard to get. If you do get your hands on one however you will love it! They do of course ship for free from microsoftstore.ca but they're currently out of stock.

    BTW just a little update, I went with Koodo since they had the black Friday deal and popped in the Koodo sim and now my MMS is working perfectly on my L1520... Videotron needs to get their **** together, shoddy LTE signals and MMS problems and dropped calls it's any wonder they have customers

    Anyone notice that you can't use two sims working on a different network frequency? One of the sims won't have reception example Koodo and Wind won't work

    Oh. That's disappointing. I was planning to get a second sim from Wind. My first is with Telus.

    It depends on the combination of networks. Telus and Bell for instance don't work together but Telus or Bell paired with Rogers works fine if the Telus or Bell sim is set as the one with data.

    I mean like telus 850 MHz and 1900 MHz frequencies while Wind network uses 1700/2100 MHz
