    Since today i'm having random reset. They would not bother me much but it is asking me for the PIN again and this yes it's bothering. i think could be related with using whatsapp web. the only thing different i did today.

    zimilaci: thank you for your reply, I appreciate it.

    Yes, I found the equalizer on my first day - and actually have fiddled with it from the second day on - I just am unable to find a setting/adjustment I can come to terms with. I first thought I had a defective unit, but I then read that some of my fellow 950XL'ites were expressing displeasure with the sound quality, which both gave me hope (I really don't want to have to return for a replacement), and concern (my current sound really does suck). I am hopeful that a fellow 950xl'ite, all of which I am sure are much smarter than I, has found the sweet spot, and wished to share their discovery.

    Cheers!

    I bought two 950XLs for the wife and my self. BOTH of the phones have the same problem. No data, no MMS messaging (neither send nor receive). I have called ATT support twice and gone to their device support center once. [I have made an appointment at the Microsoft Store and they were no help whatsoever, pulling up threads in this very forum that I was already familiar with. I have also done the online chat and they said to check with my carrier. DOH] I have entered all the correct apn settings and tried different combinations. I even went out to the floor model of the 950 and copied the settings it had. The name of the apn was slightly different for internet, and the MMS apn was not visible. There was an extra setting to use enhanced lte speed, which our phones don't have.

    One idea I have is to buy two 950's from ATT on contract, swap out the sims and then return the 950's (IF the 950XLs start working of course). If that crazy idea doesn't work, I'm afraid I'll have to return both of them to the Microsoft store.

    Any chance that will actually work?
    Check out this post. It probably pertains to you as well.

    Here is why you are not getting full LTE on AT&T when using the Lumia 950 XL | Windows Central

    sorry zimilaci I just realized I didn't answer your question...duh!

    I hear a distinct feedback (sounds like a slapping sound) after the usual and expected sounds when using the dial pad, emitting from the back speaker when dialing a phone number, or putting the phone into sleep mode. Thanks!

    and FTR, I love this phone...just trying to iron out some idiosyncrasies.

    1) "No Pictures in Outlook Email" bug, I can confirm that a reset of the phone did solve my issue. You will need download all of your apps again from the store, although if you go back to a prior setting of the phone, the store will load the apps if you click "update". I did have to log into several apps again.

    2) No Notifications: I played with settings and did a few restarts on the phone. I'm not sure how I did it or where in the settings, but I was able to turn on and change the sounds for Message, Email and Voicemail, which wasn't showing up for awhile. (Sorry, I wish I could tell you where/how I found this)

    These helped me considerably. It's a buggy OS. The apps are buggy. The phone is buggy. Good luck and keep working on it.

    Be careful. AT&T charges restocking fees. I don't know if this translates over to buying by way of a Microsoft Store.

    Anyone experiencing any issues with the hard audio jack? On my 950XL, I find on some occasions, when I plug my aux cable into the phone's jack, it keeps playing from the speaker with no sound through the jack. I have to reboot the phone to get the jack to take over audio.

    Part of the trouble with batter life might come from the fact that the Outlook app is initially set to constantly check for new mail and then it will adjust the timing based on your use. I have four separate inboxes that I use. By manually setting the times myself, I noticed a good improvement in battery. Also, turning battery saver on helped my phone at the end of a heavy-use day. I believe that it is off by default.

    - I, too, am struggling with the email images failing to load.
    - Battery life was not great until I changed some of the battery saver settings and decreased the frequency of my email downloads within the account settings.
    - I have set my phone to only require a password if no use within an hour. Even so, Windows Hello tries to start every time I open my phone. On a few occasions, when I get into apps before Hello has turned off, the thing glitches and then fails to come back on until I reset my phone.
    - Has anyone else had an issue with the glass screen? Mine is warped in three of the four corners, straight out of the box. I have tried to apply two different tempered glass screen protectors. The first one was from the microsoft store when I bought the 950xl. I applied it to the phone right out of the box. The corners kept pulling off due to the warping of the glass screen. The Microsoft employee said it was probably a faulty protector. Once I got the phone home, I realized that the warping was actually in the glass of the lumia. The second screen protector that I had ordered from Amazon on the way home from the microsoft store had the same issues of not sticking in the corners. The screen, itself, seems to work fine and the warping does not seem to affect the touch registration.

    Definitely had the exact same problem mentioned here for the 5Ghz WIFI network on a Netgear Nighthawk R7000 router. Connected up to the 2.4Ghz network and everything is very solid.
    I have been running over 2 days without a reboot. This is a nasty problem and probably confusing for new users who think the phone is unreliable.

    My 950XL wouldn't get Text Messages when I first got it. I had the Sync all history enabled on the messaging area. I bet your phone is still trying to sync your entire text history. Turn that off, mine eventually caught up, I deleted some of the old history from like 3 years ago, and texts are working great.

    I just cannot turn on my wifi. On the first day I have the phone, wifi works for like half day. Then, it always tells me try again later when I tried to turn it on again. I have restart several times, soft-reset several times and hard reset once but nothing works. However, my data just works fine.

    Do you think it is a software issue or hardware.

    Yes! Thank you for confirming that I'm not the only crazy one that thought this. Mine does it in all 4 corners and a bit around the Hello scanner.

    I'm not entirely sure if this is a bug, or if i'm missing an option, or if windows phone doesn't support it. I can't figure out how to make the notification center have a landscape mode.

    If i'm in a landscape app and pull the notification center down it looks like this:
    wp_ss_20151204_0001.jpg

    On my old android the notification center would rotate to match the rest of the phone's orientation, like this:
    screenshot_2015-12-04-00-15-59.png

    I hope its a bug or I'm missing something, because imho, having the notification center stuck in portrait mode while the rest of the phone is in landscape is not a very intuitive UI choice.

    My issues are:

    1) No pictures on the email and the email have bad formatting. No problem with a Lumia435 with wp10 preview

    2) in setting there is not the Touch and Gestures but only touch with viber when i youch the nav Keys.
    No gestures, no double tap no glove settings
    I'm very angry, becouse the phone is too expensive.

    3) Cortana on the Band (1) cannot comunicate with the phone

    4) The store doesn't send notification with the update of my apps.

    5) The Meteo app on the Glance screen is not good as the WP81. Just show some text in little font. and sometime the screen forget to show the meteo.

    2. Also no EE 4g anymore just 3g - FIX: its just harder to connect than my 1520
    3. Red tint on screen - darn you ms FIX: use advanced color profile (not great)
    4. Colours fade fast with slight off center viewing angle
    5. Lumia offers show nothing - FIX: I needed to get a new version of the program

    So far I have noticed that only in the Windows Central app, in article comments.
