    Same here, but with Fido.
    If you just go to a store, they can sell you one - I think they're only $10.
    ugh. Wish I'd known that. Paid $15 at a Telus store.

    You guys have luck redeeming your free dock? I got the email with my code but it leads me to the microsoft store page for the dock and its not in stock lol. I logged in, then it showed in stock so I added it to the cart and went to check out. I put in my promo code but at the end it actually billed my credit card! WTF!

    EDIT: Firefox seemed to be the issue. Tried redeeming through Edge and it worked. Weird.

    Thanks but I'm stubborn like that... refused to switch from Alpha Cortana while on my lumia 930 haha



    :( sorry... and sorry if it's repeat questions for you, but you HAVE to enter settings? Cause I don't do anything and everything is taken off the sim automatically and works.



    LTE seems fine (I see Rogers L), inside my house, not downtown core area, 1-3 bars, just clocked a speedtest of 18.75mbps down and 8.32mbps up. Varies a lot from test to test it seems.

    Display units don't know, not last night.

    Lumia Offers app already on the phone. Update it, then go get the dock offer.
    I did entered the settings manually, I always did ;) that's why I don't understand.

    That's an impossible question to answer. It's worth it if you ever need it, otherwise it's a waste of money.

    Personally I always play the odds on things like this and the odds are in the retailer's favour so I (almost) always say no. If I had bought warranty on every tech item I'd ever bought I would've wasted a lot of money by now. The one time that I do break something it's still cheaper to replace that one item at full price than to buy warranty for every single item.

    My only exception was the MS Band 2. The warranty on that was $39 (IIRC) and I figured with it swinging around on my wrist it might be more prone to damage, so I coughed up for that one.
    You guys are lucky, there's no MS Store in quebec... and the only way to buy an MS Complete warranty is through a retail store :(

    First thing I did last night when I got the phone, was open up the Offers app and get a code. I was able to order the free dock (and yes I'm in Canada). I had a feeling they might run out of stock eventually, which is why I jumped on it.

    I was actually asking you a question, stupid question maybe, but have you tried to just use mms right away without touching the settings?

    I know that I used to worry about apn settings years ago cause I never got carrier phones, but then one day, one phone started pulling all the data correctly from sim without need to manually set up and I stopped worry about it.

    I was curious about that too, so I tried sending an MMS without touching the settings, and no workie. However, on my 1020, after installing the W10M preview version, MMS worked without any settings at all.

    On Koodo and I didn't have touch any settings. Data/MMS appear to be working fine.

    Yes I tried without changing the settings, with a various combination of settings too without any success... I can send but never receive.

    They didn't have any accessories yet on Wednesday. What's in the Essentials Bundle here in Canada? Mind taking a pic? Do they have any cases at the store now? Perhaps a Mozo case??
    This isn't the best picture, but will have to suffice. It includes the Icipio tempered glass screen protector, which is really nice. Comes with a little rubber cover that covers the back and edges. (You can upgrade to those Jack Spade ones if you pay the difference.) And also the 5800 mAh dual port USB battery back charger thing.cuxicf0uaaaczyw.jpg

    EDIT: The case is the Icipio NGP. :) And we don't have the Mozo back plates... hoping soon though.

    pic of how it looks? how thick is it? curved edges? Does it matter?
    Here it is! The flash makes it look worse, but I wanted you to be able to see the edges.

    another stupid question, tried to receive from different networks or always the same person or network trying send you? Like did you try it with someone else and different network?

    I had a weird problem the past where I couldn't get mms to work with wife phone/network. Then one day it worked with someone else by fluke and eventually found it was my wife account issue and nothing wrong with me!

    Why give me a redemption code when it's out of stock. Are they gone in less than 48 hours or is it just off for today?

    So this is screwed up, just tried with a Bell LTE Sim and it didn't work. Couldn't get any MMS either. Even entering the manual APN settings, or not, the Data works... but not the MMS... (I tried with both sims in, but Bell never worked). If used alone I do get signal, data, but can't get the stupid mms to work no matter what I do. Anybody had success with a Bell Sim?

    I'd like to buy the 950XL but I haven't used my phone in excess for a while and other personal reasons, plus the money I recently spent on my PC; I could have bought 3 950XL. I will be holding off for a while. I do want to try one out soon.

    I'll be waiting to hear if anyone has any luck with a Bell LTE Sim as I was going to jump and buy one but if I can't use it on this network then there is no point, sigh.

    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
