    Other problem: Skype for business doesn't work in the right way, messages from colleagues don't arrive (I can see the status, I can write, but messages arrive on pc)
    Neko: I had lengthy Skype conversation with a factory in China, day before yesterday, and noticed that while conversing via text, on Skype, that the whole conversation was also broadcasted to the 950XL simultaneously. I have selected in my: 'Settings' => 'System' => 'Messaging' => 'Sync messages between devices' = "ON". When I completed the Skype conversation, I noticed that my 950XL's Live Tile Message Icon logged every entry made by the Factory, as an "Unread Incoming Message" totaling 21 for the "one" Skype Converstaion.

    To everyone complaining about the emails not fully downloading, have you gone into the sync settings for each account and put a check on "download complete email"? It is OFF by default.

    Hey Mark -
    thanks for the tip, I think we need more of that.

    I did find that setting a while back. I was having the same problem as everyone else, and at first was concerned...until I found out that almost everyone was have the same result (emails not downloading full content). Then it just stood to reason that a fix would be around the corner. I've noticed that more and more of my email account are starting to show their full content, and after reading your post, I re-check my primary email account, and low-and-behold all was good again.

    I don't know if it's my imagination, but are the MS elves sliding some bug fixes during the night...I swear, my phone is getting better and better. A customer called this morning and I noticed that the pop-up screen with his picture on it look down right impressive, of course I immediately hung up on him and had to call him back...and during apology I told him it was a new phone and I wasn't altogether familiar with it. The point I'd like to make is that when he asked me "Oh, what kind did you get?" I actually felt VERY PROUND to say "It's a Windows Phone". I'm really starting to fall in love with this phone...I my have to go out tonight and buy it some flowers!!!

    sorry for all grammatical errors.

    well I had tried to do that a couple of other times, but I made the mistake of FIRST telling the ATT person that I had an unlocked phone. We're talking about two long calls to tech support and one IN PERSON visit to a devices "support" center. When you tell ATT that you have an unlocked phone, they close their ears and don't care. You are not their problem, which makes sense because they have problems all day long and one less would be welcome.

    But it turned out, after I finally, today, after reading that post again, decided to LIE to the tech support person and she actually LOOKED at my account, that some bozo from ATT had TURNED OFF MY DATA PLAN COMPLETELY. I had originally had an unlimited plan, but now I had nothing... pay per use that didn't even work.

    So moral of the story is to go ahead and try to cut the SIM if you need to, or just go ahead and lie to ATT because they do not have your actual interest in mind if you are not on one of their branded phones.

    So thank you for the response, you caused me to re-read the article and gather the courage to fabricate a story that eventually made my phone work.

    Hey androidkin,

    You may have an Weather APP, or Cortana is bored.

    Cortana will give you alerts on a number of different issue (provided you have her activated), at least I know I do.

    To check the other possibility, GoTo: "Settings" => 'System' => 'Notifications & actions' => TOP OF PAGE: look to see if you choose a weather app. => BOTTOM OF PAGE: also check in this area see if you have a weather app installed and activated.

    Hope this helps.

    Please excuse errors.

    Anyone having issues of your phone not notifying you when texts come in?

    My phone will sometimes give me a chime and a screen notification and sometimes it will not. I have double checked the settings and it should be notifying me every time.

    For a while last night I thought I was not getting texts as a buddy called me and asked why I was not responding to him.

    Low and behold I open the message app and there were 3 texts from him.........but my phone never notified me.

    It has done it once today but then another time today it actually did notify me.

    I noticed that when I had Bluetooth Active for my desk's headset, I was not receiving notifications...now that I have Bluetooth "off", I get most notifications.

    Add this to the "list of reasons to reboot"

    Last night, I noticed that while the phone was asleep at the glance screen, every time I received a notification (text, email, whatever) the phone would wake up with the noise it makes when unlocked, display the notification, then go back to sleep with the noise it makes when you put it to sleep with the button. I rebooted and all was normal again.

    I know that if Bluetooth "ON" you don't receive sound notifications.

    I probably should have better qualified my statement. if Bluetooth is "ON" and connected to a Bluetooth device.

    My W10 laptop does not recognize my 950 XL. I am using the included Type C USB cable and when I plug it in it chirps and looks like it's charging but I get no notification on my PC and don't see it in phone companion or file explorer. Can anyone help me out ? Do I need a driver or something ?

    Are you running all the latest updates from Windows Update? On my Lenovo X1 Carbon, all I had to do was plug it in.

    That started happening to me once I took out the SD card (due to it making my phone reboot every time I use the card)... Sigh... what a terrible product launch.

    I had ear speaker busted straight out of box. First phone call i made i thought that it was just bad connection but second call i made it was clear that speaker was broken. Just got replacement and everything is fine now. Phone also feels better overall and no squeaking back cover either not to mention phone seems to run quite bit cooler too. I had definitely bad unit.

    Top this one:

    To turn on Microsoft Hello, the phone tells you to take off your glasses and then proceeds to give you text instructions. Do Microsoft engineers have the slightest clue why people wear glasses? Well the main reason is so they can read things like text on a screen! Ever hear of giving voice instructions?
    :-)

    To be fair, given the average age of a computer or software engineer, most of them probably have experience with myopia (shortsightedness), but not with presbyopia, therefore there is no problem in their minds to remove one's glasses to look at the phone. Actually it is even more natural do to that.

    I have had my phone plugged in to the charger for almost 17 hours straight (about half an hour break in between) and it has only reached 90%?? Has anyone else experienced the same problem?

    My weather info has completely disappeared from the lock screen, it worked fine for the first day, but now I can only see time, date and notifications.

    I also noticed when writing this post that sometimes highlighting text to copy or edit doesn't work at all.

    When changing songs from the lock screen, the text flicker two to three times before displaying the new song.

    That's what I could think about right now.
