    I was actually trying to get confirmation in the Windows 10 forum that I wasn't doing something wrong, but no response yet. I'm where you are where I didn't know this happened until a couple of days ago (a post on another forum). I didn't believe it, so I loaded WM10 on my L920 and lo and behold, it looks like it's true! :(

    wait, what? are you talking about the 950? Only differences are 10% bigger screen size, 10% bigger battery size and the 810 processor. (someone else please flog me if I'm wrong )
    This was in response to a message on the 640 vs. the 640XL

    Yes, it does. But it doesn't support notification of a message from the pinned contact via a counter. therefore it's the same as Android now.

    Again, that is what I an seeing and have heard.

    Ah. Yep, that IS a bummer. I do admit the People Hub of early Windows 8 mobile was a huge attraction to me coming from IOS. Completely blew me away. I am sure that there are explanations for what has been changed since those days, but I regret that differentiation getting watered down.
    Me and the wife even used the shared "room" feature and it was powerful! She would be at the grocery store and I would torture her by updating the "grocery List" on my phone. Hers' would then sync and she would hear it. It would send her down an isle that she had already completed.

    Wonderful little torture feature. I miss it.

    Thanks for confirming that SB. Really appreciate it. Unfortunately, that was a killer feature for me as I get bombarded with emails and messages all day and need to prioritize them. Looks like I will stick with Android for now. Very depressing :(

    NO! Really? Seeing notifications from pinned contacts at a glance was one of the BEST features. I used a 1520 for almost two years before it died an accidental, watery death about two months ago. I've been suffering along with an iPhone 4S while waiting for the 950 XL. But, this is terrible news. Maybe I'll buy a used 1520 and not update the OS..... Does anyone have a link to a comparison of 8.1 vs 10?

    Once I start loading apps I'm going to make a comparison Chart of iOS vs Windows Mobile apps that I used vs what I'm going to have to use or not use now. Hopefully everything (for the most part) works out well.

    FRom what I understand the camera is absolutely identical. Only difference from what I understand is that the post processing is faster on the XL. But same in every other way.
