    My old L920 is running 8.1. Ran in the Dev Preview group. Screen cracked... Cannot take a call unless on speaker or bluetooth.

    Snapped up a 950 XL during the BOGO offer and while I'm kinda excited, I'm also extremely worried about what my experience will be. I do not remember ever having to do a hard reset on my L920. Sounds like the norm with W10M... This will be my primary phone, but will still have my L920 just incase...

    Any advice to reduce the pain? Thanks in advance...

    Is there even an agreement on which is the best protective case at this point? Seems so scattered as far as reviews...

    FWIW:
    - Stay on production build, for piece of mind. I'm on Insider Release Preview with no problems, but there is always a chance.
    -I use a wallet for utility, protection. There are many cases = personal choice.
    Lumia 950 XL/OS is over it's teething stage. W10P *.242 has been solid/ stable for me.
    If in doubt stay at production build.
    Think you will enjoy it.
    Good Luck

    Agreed with EtheE, on Release Preview my 950XL is very well behaved, I really like it at this point. Plus if you ever take a selfie, those will be vastly improved (5MP vs 1.3MP)

    Spec comparison: 950XL vs 920

    Thanks for the input. It showed up today, but I may put off setup until the weekend.

    Well good, just in time to give you this tip: on first setup, immediately head to the store and hit 'pause all' (it will be trying to download and update tons of apps), locate the store app in the list of downloads, and do that one first, and maybe some of the more important sounding settings apps. Once that's done you can resume all.

    You'll probably have to get a new sim unless you cut it yourself. AT&T wouldn't cut my 920 sim to fit my 950xl. Also insert the sim before you turn on and setup the phone.

    Ack. What? First I've heard of this... So, I'll have to go into AT&T for a new SIM? Is there a charge?

    Nvm, I'm up on this now... Should have done more homework. Glad I saw this before I started swapping over.

    I didn't have to pay for the new one.

    Went by to check, but didn't have phone. They said they would help, so going after work and I guess I'll be making the switch over tonight. Fingers crossed...

    You can simply cut your existing sim to the nano size.

    Give it a while after the restore. I resorted to the transfer my data app for texts as they weren't showing but seem to have double messages now.

    Loving the 950xl after a 1020 and brief 1520 by the way.

    For me, I don't have any major issues on my 950XL on the latest Fast ring build either and no need to hard reset either.

    However, others may have issues. It seems experiences can vary. For that, as mentioned, it may be best to stay on the production ring for now.

    All the texts stared showing up after 24hrs. So far everything is great, just still getting used to the differences between 8.1 & 10. Staying in the production ring for now & uber paranoid with no case or screen protection... lol
