    Recommend stay away from Insider updates, they can cause you grief.

    Yes. I guess the recent stable build is 342. The phone doesn't show any of the updates for the insider as well as the production build one.

    .242 on a 950 working better than .218 for me......you can get it on insider pre release

    It might take 24-48 hours, sometimes longer for the Insider settings to take effect if it is your first time, be patient and it should work.

    Me mindful some people have great luck with slow and fast ring and others its a buggy mess. I was on the fast ring and loved the features but I couldn't handle the reduced battery life and bugs. I know its a preview build but I went back to the Release Preview ring. The official and release preview is stable (for most) and is safe for daily use for Windows 10 mobile. I would say 3-4 months ago the fast ring was necessary to see a more stable version of Mobile.

    Latest OS versions:
    Official - 10586.218
    Insider Release Preview - 10586.242
    Insider Slow - 14295.1005
    Insider Fast - 14332

    Yeah, gotta echo the others. If you /must/ be on the Insider Preview, stick to the slower rings. Fast Ring is, more than ever, an experimental platform for bug spotting and testing.

    Did you join insider and accept the agreement? Use the insider app to set yourself to production preview. It will ask you to reboot if you do it right. Reboot it and then it should show up in phone updates. If not give it some time. But also update your apps in the store.

    Everything else is fine. The store apps update fine..the production builds are installing fine... I used the fast ring on my 1520...it was fine... it doesn't check for updates in the 950XL though through insider.

    Here's a question. Did you restore a backup from your 925? Honestly, this could put your phone into an odd state. So I would have started fresh if I was you. If you did just do a factory reset. It only takes a bit of time to get things going and once you do, it's worth it.

    I actually started it fresh and then backed up. Then I restored after a hard reset.
