    Has anyone had any Bluetooth related problems with the build shipped with 950/XL?
    I'm often running into problems while trying to listen to my podcasts in the car. Tried a few different apps, but all of them seem to act strange every now and then.
    Play/Pause commands seems to get stuck or lost.

    Me and some others are experiencing serious Bluetooth problems with the 950 XL, meaning it reboots during calls or while using Continuum.

    I can't connect my 950xl to a car with 2006 handsfreelink :( My 930 was fine.... should try it with upgraded to w10 to see if it's related to that.

    In my car, I'll be listening to music with my phone and the Bluetooth will drop randomly every few minutes and then reconnect. I tried it at home with a Bluetooth speaker and it didn't drop. I had a Lumia 928 and it never dropped in my car.

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

    My 920 with w10insider .29 connected fine.

    Bluetooth connection between my car and 950 xl is fine, although it need less than a minute to catch up every time when I start my car.

    Yes, the phone or rather W10m often doesn't recognize already paired devices. Sometimes it's enough to tap on the device in Bluetooth settings, other times I have to un-pair and repair again. Bluetooth's quite a hassle at the moment. I haven't tried it in the car yet.

    I have the same, mostly with my car BT. I will cut in and out while music is playing. I haven't tried with BT calling or with a head set

    I'm having nothing but trouble with all my Bluetooth equipment since switching to the 950. It really sucks.

    many times I can't connect to my car or headphones. Worse, my phone will SAY it's connected but it' not. I have been having to unpair, reboot the phone, and re-pair to get things working.

    And yes, I have updated to the lastest .29 update.

    Im thinking the Bluetooth problem is more of a windows 10 thing and not so much a 950 thing. It's really frustrating that something so basic has to ruin the experience. Especially since I have enjoyed reliable Bluetooth with WP8.1.

    Hi all,
    having the same issue even after upgrade to build 10586.29.
    On previous build the device has been restarting when on bluetooth for instance in the car. On this new build device inst restarting but disconnecting/re-connecting during calls using bluetooth in the car. There were no issues with my Lumia 930 even running insider program builds.
    Its very obstructive and frustrating. I have tried to play with configuration of the bluetooth both in the car and in the phone without any improvement.
    Any tips how to work-around the issue or only option is to wait once Microsoft sort this out?

    I'm sending my 950XL back to Amazon - bluetooth isn't working at all for me, it couldn't find anything to pair with. Microsoft Band is essential for me to know when my phone is ringing. Hoping the replacement works better.

    I deleted the band from the health app on my previous phone before I could add it to the 950xl. It has linked ok and syncs across, but the Bluetooth symbol on the band doesn't ever light up as connected...

    My band seems to get all notifications, even though the BT symbol is rarely lit. It's almost as if they are pushed to the band from my phone!

    I re-paired both the other day and the BT symbol stayed connected all day. But it's now back to not showing as paired on my XL or Band, but i'm certainly getting everything through [emails and notifications, rarely get calls unless i'm in trouble with the Wife................]

    Connect to my BMW X1 no problems, and i would say the music connection is better than 8.1 on my Lumia 930. Touch wood.

    Don't really use those features. Cortana doesn't work, says i near to be nearer phone and have BT on.

    So there is an issue of it not been constantly connected, but it does seem to push the notifications through fine. Odd.

    Same here, I did sometimes use the reply to texts, as it saved me digging my phone out of my pocket.

    My Band2 connects via BT to my 950, ok...in fact when you open MS Health it syncs very fast compared to my 1020.

    But functions like the voice replies to text messages via Cortana, or using the Band keyboard, don't work at all.

    My Bluetooth is now working perfectly. I noticed every time my car said it lost connection to my phone, my phone was trying to connect to some random wifi that it found while I was driving. I tried turning off wifi. Now I never have a problem. I am not sure why those 2 things are related, but it worked.

    It probably is a WP 10 thing. With my Insider Lumia 640, I have to manually start my Groove app when I start my car for the first time each day. Same if I change the default to Pandora. In 8.1, when I started the car, my phone started X-Box Music and immediately started playing. Since I have the problem with two apps, it would seem to be in the O/S Bluetooth connection.

    My band 2 has lots of issues: Can hardly use media control, reply to text or use Cortana from it. Likewise Bluetooth to use Cortana is useless. Otherwise, including streaming music to 3 car systems, several earphones, headphones, speakers working just fine.

    I hope the band/Cortana features are fixed soon, I really miss them.

    anyone with the new firmware update still having Bluetooth issues.

    I don't have the new firmware yet as im in the US and on OS build .29 and Bluetooth is not reliable. frequently drops then reconnects both on my car and my JBL PowerUp speaker. both of which work flawlessly with my 8.1 phones.
