    Hey.. Anyone..

    We all know by now that MS end W10M as of December 2019. I was wondering is anyone still around on here and still using their XL or have you all switched to Android or IOS..

    Or is anyone like me and still using the XL as their daily..

    Just Curious

    My 950XL is working great and it's still my primary phone! I'm shocked some of the apps that are still working well like United Airlines for example. I'm still able to pin flight status live tiles and they actually update. I'm now getting my work email via Edge using office365 and it stays logged in and running for days before I need to log in again.

    Edge is really great on w10m at keeping your pages open stable! Sadly I lost my 950XL but still have the elite X3

    Yes I'm still using my 950xl, I figure I will have to switch later this year. Facebook and Instagram were supposed to go away April 30th but they appear to be still working. WhatApp will be going away and at that point I will need to change.

    Still using my 950 xl and I bought another used 950 xl in good condition last summer to have a spare phone just in case 😃. Still an amazing phone with a fantastic camera.

    It'll probably still work fine, just can't reinstall it as I learned when an update borked my x3

    My plan is to try and see if I can wipe it and install windows 10 desktop on it. Just to see if I can get it done.

    While a Galaxy S10 is my primary, I still use my 950 xl on occasion. I switched to my 950 xl recently and installed the May update. I wouldn't say that it runs as smoothly or as reliably as my S10 but there are little details (and overall look) of Win10m that I still prefer. Its the system wide dark theme that I appreciate/enjoy, though Samsungs One UI/Pie dark theme is much welcomed. Also, dark theme support on OneNote mobile was a nice surprise on my 950 xl; and its still functioning as needed for the time being.

    I use my 950XL proudly. Unfortunately I broke the screen a couple of days ago. I'm looking at buying a replacement screen or phone. The RM number seems to different on so many phones and I don't know what that means. I live in the USA and I'm not sure if the phone I'm seeing are international phones or North American phone. Mine is RM 1116. Do I need to buy that same RM#, certain RM#s, or does it matter at all? Then there is the whole thing about ending it in December, so is it worth it at all. Will it work part that date but not be supported or will it just stop working because they shut it down?

    I'm not really finding screen replacements either.

    I really don't want to switch. I really like the tile ui. I prefer most of the other functions that are unique to WP10

    I purchased my 950XL off ebay last year, new unopened box, and assumed it was an international dual sim version. I opened the back cover and its RM1116 version which works well on T-Mobile. I haven't removed the back cover in some time and was shocked when 3 small screws fell out. Literally, every single torx head screw was completely loose! All of them!! I happened to have the correct torx screwdriver and tightened all of them.

    So, it seems that the RM # deals with the number of Sims. RM1085 is a single SIM phone while RM1116 is the dual SIM phone. One dealer tried to tell me it had to do with the carrier it was with and then included a lot of specs to make it seem that he knew what he was talking about. He didn't. None of the specs had anything to do with the SIM or the RM#. I'll buy it from someone else.

    I'm still using a 950XL. I also have a 950. I'm not really looking forward to changing phones. I'm hoping a decent Nokia phone will be available whenever I have to switch, but I'm planning to use the 950s until they simply don't work anymore.

    I noticed today that the Facebook app no longer works.

    I have a glass only i bought and never had the chance to really try and replace it. Only bought full one piece replacement. You have the tools and know how to do a glass only? Lots of heat I imagine! :)

    Well, less than a month after posting about how I'm still using my 950XL, the touchscreen has quit responding to touch. It will work every now and then for a little while, but it's no longer reliable, and currently is completely unresponsive.

    So, now I'm using the 950 I got in the last two for one deal that Microsoft ran on Black Friday, which I believe may have been 2016. I've used the 950 before for about a month, but dropped it and cracked the screen. It still works fine cracked screen and all, and the 950 seems like a fine little phone, but I do believe I preferred the XL.

    I'm still using my 950, but I bought an s10e last Thursday while on sale ($550+tax). I still haven't opened the box since I'm still on the fence about it. I think I can do a full refund within 10 days or so.

    Anyway, I'm trying to figure out if the money is worth whatever extra performance and functionality I get with this new phone. Right now it feels like I can justify a decision either way, which is torture for an indecisive poor sod like me...

    I just really like my 950... :-(
