    Has anyone with an unlocked UK CV 950xl received the latest firmware update yet? I must exit/enter Insider program every day just incase, but I guess I should wait until someone says it is live for our devices! Thanks.

    This is actually really poor. I get the whole phased release thing, but this is taking too long. This is a firmware update for Microsofts top end phone, to fix real problems that exist for many users - not just a maintenance release. I'm hoping mention of GPS in the release notes fixes the GPS stability problems I have - I use maps/waze/navigon every day and at least twice a week the apps lose GPS signal. NOTHING resolves it, except a reboot, where the GPS works straight away. Very frustrating.

    Of course I have tried a hard reset, and not restored from backup - no apparent difference. What makes it more frustrating is with no clue or forecast as to when this might be released, I find myself constantly switching between fast ring and production ring 'just in case' they have decided to roll out the firmware update in one of it's more successful markets!

    I have an Iphone 6S Plus, a Samsung Galaxy S6 Edge, and a 950XL Lumia. I use the Iphone as my personal phone and had been using my 950xl as my work phone. However with poor battery life, and all the issues others have including reboots, I have retired the 950XL, and I am using me S6 Edge again untill the firmware in the uk is available. My 950xl is an unlocked, unbranded UK model

    I cant agree more with everything you said its depressing they wont explain their decision to not give UK peeps it
    maybe we DONT need it? maybe every other country has bad firmware - somehow I doubt it :)

    Really? It does if your phone is unstable, random reboots, flaky blue-tooth, and random blue-tooth hotspot disconnects

    Personally I'm at the point whereby I don't think the phone is in a state whereby it should have been released.

    Can't believe the amount of issues with basic things such as notifications not working, phone resetting, bluetooth connectivity amongst lots of other things. Who does the QA because they should be fired. A flagship phone should at least do the basic things well and this does none of them.

    I'm in Australia and have very few issues with my 950XL. I use GPS, Bluetooth, wifi, calls, Internet regularly. My battery life is quite good compared to my HTC M9 running Android 5.1. My M9 use to lose GPS on a regular basis. I haven't had my 950XL do this yet which is a nice change. I'm on .107 of the OS and the old firmware. So far so good.

    If you're suffering from known firmware issues on an unlocked CV phone, can't wait any longer, and are willing to do a hard reset, a solution already exists.
