    Oops! Just send an unfinished post. Sending this from my old Focus running WP 7.8 (great machine it was!). Ok, the purpose here is just to say that I did experience 2 reboots so far on my 1 sim 950xl. On podcast and calendar.

    Wow, I just remember my L920 and L1520 when reboots, it happened to my Lumia 800 (WP7.8) too. Oh! Happened to my androids phones sometimes.

    My first 950 was the dual sim US model. Had nothing but problems with it from the day I first set it up, so returned it. Read on the internet about the single sim being a much better phone....well...lets see :)

    Just got my Single Sim XL from a top rated ebay seller in Texas today. It has RM-1085 and was set for Hong Kong when manufactured. Have set it up for US operation and so far (knock on wood), everything is working great.

    Will keep you informed ..... but so far the single sim model seems to updating and working so much better !

    I received my Single SIM 950XL yesterday and didn't get a chance to open up the box and set everything up until last night. I'm still finalizing all my set up for the device but so far so good. I did what was suggested on this forum and performed a hard reset right away once I got the phone out of the box. I then started everything from scratch, checked for updates, updated the device with latest OS (.29) and newest firmware that was just pushed out for the US yesterday or so. I then performed another hard reset after the software updates and set up the phone for normal use right after. I did notice the phone got hot (I wouldn't say just warm...but to me it was a lil more than just warm) while updating and setting up the phone. Today, after the storm of updating and charging and playing around with it, I think it's settled into it's more normal state and I haven't felt it get hot...just warm occasionally. Windows Hello works better than I anticipated. Battery life seems to be doing OKAY. I'll get a better feel with more usage. I was able to set up VVM but I haven't tested it out. More to come!

    Does the latest insider build install? It won't on my Single SIM. I don't know if it works on any single sim yet.

    The insider build OS .36 shows available to download and install but it craps out during the process and gives me an error message. Guess .36 doesn't play nice with the newest firmware.

    If you havent figured it out.. text maybe buggy at first. You will have to call T-mobile and get to second tier they will have to try to force "commission" the phone.

    As for Band 12 havent seen an improvment. If anythign this is almost no better than my International ( no 1700/2100 band ) 930. Good luck.

    I wish I could put 8.1 on my 950XL personally..so far Win10 seems as buggy and bad as the beta has been. Still doesnt feel finished IMHO.

    NGP's return policies would worry me.. "We accept most unopened items, If the return is not result of our error, re-stocking fee of minimum 15% may be applied depending on the condition of the item. Once returned process initiates, please expect to receive refund within four weeks."
    So if you don't like it or have issues they don't deem defective your stuck with restocking and shipping fees.. Could end up costing you over $670 which could take a month to receive, personally I much rather pay MS $649 for a full warranty and 30 no questions money back guarantee..

    I agree, except that, if you want a single sim, you can't get a single sim from MS.

    Yep, the issue persists. Just tried it again, clean install. Nope.

    True, if getting a single sim is worth a $700 gamble it's your money.. IMHO I wouldn't take that chance, then again I cancelled my 950XL dual sim order due to all the issues that surfaced after it's release.

    I have the single sim version from NGP purchased from Amazon. Had to have visual voicemail with AT&T. I haven't received the latest firmware update yet. I've had the phone for a few days but have not had many issues with it so far. It's running pretty smoothly. I am running 10526.29 software and 15506.02008 firmware at the moment. Haven't joined Windows Insider to get the latest updates yet but don't want to create more problems than I have now. I understand from reading here on the forums there may be an issue with updating to a new version based on the firmware you are on perhaps. Guess I'll sit tight with what I have for now.

    Wise thinking... Were you able to get VVM with the single SIM version? Any issues getting LTE running with AT&T? Single SIM would be the way I'd go also..

    All the things you have mentioned so far are working without issue on the single SIM version of the 950XL. My device is unlocked so I am not sure when I will see the firmware upgrade. If they add it to Windows Insider Rings, I may join the group, install the firmware upgrade and the subsequent .63 OS upgrade.

    What do you mean by this? I have T-Mobile. Do you mean my 950XL utilizes Band 12 for data only, and not for voice?

    Yeah, this is news to me. I thought that band 12 was used generally for data only.

    Bought it from a seller on eBay that I use often. Their name UserID is never-msrp.
    I can vouch for this guy as well. Bought a few things from him without an issue. Always working. Always great conditions above how "harshly" he/she describes. Prices are good.
    Didn't know he/she had 950's though!

    After seeing so many complains on the 2 sim, i decided to get an unlocked 1 sim 950xl off Expansys Canada. Got it w/ extended warranty but still crossing my fingers anyway. I started by changing the Lang from all Chinese to English and rebooted.

    thinking of doing this myself, just curious - did you get it yet and if so how long did it take?

    i returned my 950xl which i bought from MS online store due to alot of small issues adding up. initially asked for replacement but was told it would take a while because there was no stock, i couldnt go to the physical store and have it replaced had to do it by mail. so i just returned it instead while also hoping updates would fixed some of the issues by now. now that i got my free continuum dock which i have on my desk and see everyday, i am kinda wanting to get a new 950xl already. i have seen some single sim 950xls on amazon which is awesome, i have amazon credit yes 6 months no interest. but the issue is warranty, talked to MS live chat a few times and was told that they should have manufacturer warranty. but going into the store and buying complete wont work.

    i guess what im asking is can anyone else confirm there is manufacturer warranty and how would that work? i am in the US by the way. i know expansys is selling extended warranty. but if i bought from amazon, what are my options? can i even buy insurance?
