    Bluetooth is horrible. I think they used a 3.0 stack...when it needs 4.1

    Band 2 voice replies never work because Bluetooth is so flaky.

    Bluetooth connection to my macbook pro (OSX el capitan) sucks big time! I can send files from my computer to phone, but not from phone to computer. Not sure what the deal is. I'm also not sure if this is an issue with the device, a WP10 issue, or an issue with the Mac OS. Any other Mac users out there having this trouble??

    I have a Plantronics Savi 740 that Lumia shows connected, however, it does not connect to incoming or outgoing calls.

    It is intermittent which is even more frustrating.

    I have not tested Bluetooth streaming from car audio system, I know I can stream with iPhone 6SPlus Spotify, will try 950 XL.

    I have .29 update and Microsoft store swapped out unit once.

    I still think Bluetooth, the daily or multiple daily reboots and battery are all software issues... think Microsoft needs a rockstar VP like Panos to take over the software side to have a rock solid OS.

    I feel sorry for Microsoft in some way, I think they really want to sell their ecosystem to CIO's, including cloud, device and such, any smart CIO would throw MS rep out of the door if they showed off 950XL as finished product.

    Vision is there..execution is lacking on Windows 10 Phone OS!!!

    My 950XL is disconnecting from by BT headset everyday at least once, usually in the middle of the call, so it quite sucks. The headset is ok, it works perfectly with 930 on win10 DP.

    .29 is worse, now it won't even see my car's bluetooth.

    My 920 with w10insider .29 connected fine.
    After the Microsoftmdg firmware, I can now connect the 950XL to my old car BT :D now need a long drive and see about these disconnect issues, but I've done internet radio streaming over BT on rentals cars before (early Dec) no problem with the 950XL.

    I have the latest update, the Bluetooth service appears to crash when making calls. The worst part is that you are unable to disable the bluetooth option in the call so there is no way to continue the call.

    funny I can disconnect (and have) when I'm in a call... just press either the speaker or press the Bluetooth to disable...

    It's not the device it's windows 10, I had lots of Bluetooth and contana issues with connection to my car radio, yet once I rolled back to 8.1 everything works perfectly again.

    I'm having the same issue with my car Bluetooth on the 950xl. The car and phone will say its connected, but when I go to make or take a call 90% of the time I have to turn on the phone speaker, since the audio won't be through the car.

    And don't even get me started on the text message thing. I can hear my phone quietly asking if I want to "read it or ignore" but the sound and the mic are not coming through car audio, so I have to hunt for my phone in the dash or just be driven crazy by the repeating question, over and over again.

    After the firmware update my bt issues appear mostly gone: I can now usually use media controls and keyboard input from my band 2, and I haven't had to re-pair a headset because it just won't connect as I had to do once in a while. 950XL, .36 OS update and .27 firmware.

    The main issue I have observed with BT relates to Cortana and reading messages. Cortana will pause audio play correctly; however, whether or not I interact with my device to hear/reply to a message, BT audio will not unpause. Quite frustrating. Just got new firmware but haven't tested BT interactions on it. I am assuming that this is an OS issue and not hardware related.

    So once I saw there was more inventory available I hit my local MS store and switched out the device.installed to latest OS and firmware (not insider) and did a hard reset then restored from backup. So far the new device is working like a champ. Let's hope it stays that way.

    I wouldnt say so, it must be related to OS and HW/Firmware as I was running Win 10 on Lumia 930 without such issues. No Im using 950XL and using BT in the car is a nightmare. Hope they fix it till end of January otherwise Im sending the device back and going to buy an iPhone because without this functionality phone is useless for a business use.

    If you are still having issues it's the phone. Exchange it. The new 950xl I got is flawless

    I had trouble with my old car, a 2012 Mazda 3 with the Bose stereo. Bluetooth didn't work correctly with my old phone and didn't work with the 950XL. I just got a new car - 2016 Mazda also with the Bose stereo but maybe a different generation? I have had absolutely no problem with the new car.

    could you please confirm you were facing the same issues with your old phone?
    Would that mean that potential first series of phone sold out by MS had some HW issues?
    Thank You

    Not sure if it was hardware or software but I am running the same software, firmware, apps and settings and the new phone works flawlessly whereas the old one had consistent Bluetooth issues.

    I tried to connect my treasure tag to my 950 xl but it doesn't connect. With my 1020 running win 10 it works fine.

    I have strange issue with Lumia 950XL (most recent firmware and insider preview). When I'm playing book it works for a while and then it plays few seconds of every chapter and goes to next ;( Anyone have this kind of issue?

    I think that issue is in BT 4.X because when listening on my car witch have older BT everything is working but when connecting to my headphones (http://www.avantree.com/product-blue...r-pro-908.html) which have BT 4.0 the problem appears.

    Fixed with OS Build 10.0.10586.71 in combination with firmware 01078.00038.16025.39030 on 950XL.

    The Firmware ist deployed to non-insiders. So stop being insider and get the new FW.
    After FW update re-join the insider program and get OS Build .71.

    I would say OS Build .71 is nearly perfect!

    My blue tooth head set cycles between connected and not. I have several, all do the same. I am on my second 950XL. Going back to a 735 on 8. Wife has one and it is infinitely more reliable.
