    So, unless I'm missing something, there's no double tap to wake, I can't find the setting for Hey Cortana, and the deal breaker for me is that the phone does not support hands free voice control in my 2015 Honda CR-V.

    This sucks.
    I won't have mine till tomorrow, but on windows phone 8, in the Bluetooth settings the was an option called "use alternate Bluetooth audio" after tapping the advanced options button. Only way voice commands work in my car (and don't max Bluetooth volume on the phone with this option selected)

    just check my 920, which is on win10, the option is there too.

    I have Hey Cortana. Launch Cortana > Notebook >Settings. Mine is in there. However, you are correct about the double tap. :-(

    I'll wait until the update is released before nitpicking.

    Unfortunately, this did not work. Still can't get voice command functions in my brand new car. So... Guess which one has to go?

    It is my understanding that the AT&T phones contain support for dual wireless charging: PMA in addition to Qi. I don't have any PMA accessories, so I'll be unable to test this, but Daniel Rubino says so...so no argument here!
    All 950s are PMA-enabled. That's more a 950 vs 950XL thing than AT&T vs Microsoft. The XL won't have PMA.

    First (and very important) difference I see from 10581 to 10586 is that the messaging live tile is working again.

    wonder if it's looking for a specific bluetooth profile.... this is the problem with bluetooth overall. despite being a "standard", not everythng works with all bluetooth devices. on mine (alpine aftermarket), years ago, i had to flash the european firmware that was a version # higher than the US version to get my phonebook to sync. I'm willing to bet this is more a honda issue rather than the phone, and i am not familiar enough with honda to know if they even release updates for their infotainment centers...

    Well, it works with my LG G4, my iPhone 6S, and my Lumia 830. I don't know why it doesn't work with the 950, but it's definitely a deal breaker.

    Possibly because it just came out. You might want to wait for an update if it's not something you have to have day one.

    So does anyone actually think ATT will have a Windows 10 update very soon? This 830 user doesn't.

    Software updates can push via windows update for phones now I believe? Only need AT&T for firmware

    Bad luck for me. My 950 arrived in a box that was apparently run over by a truck. Screen is shattered on the device. I can't understand why the fedex driver would leave a smashed box on my porch. The return process will probably delay the arrival of my phone for weeks.

    That sucks, sorry to hear that. Maybe try going into an ATT store and see what they can do for you?

    take pics of the box and phone, send a claim to fedex and contact AT&T. Fedex should know better than leave a smashed box, especially since the drivers are directly responsible one they have it in their truck.

    They don't put the "Hey Cortana" setting in an intuitive place, do they?

    Correction, it's a AT&T thing as they are in the PMA camp which is why they removed Qi Wireless from the 1520 at launch and were selling separate PMA covers.

    The 950 for the rest of the world is only Qi Wireless capable not PMA capable and the same applies for the 950 XL.

    MS has been saying that for years, don't believe the BS. Only critical updates or critical security updates are pushed that way, not OS updates.

    If this finally changes, after years of them saying it would, I'll believe it when I see it.

    Just install Windows Insider so you don't have to wait for AT&T.

    Per Microsoft AT&T Lumia 950 listing...it shows Qi for wireless charging. Is this not the case...are we sure? Thanks for the confirmation on this, I receive my phone today and will not keep the AT&T version if that is the case.

    Hey, has anybody thought of plugging one of these in and launching the recovery tool, see if it offers anything for download?

    glad you volunteered :) (i can try after work, but the latest osx broke the windows phone app, so i can't get my mac at work to see a windows phone natively or in a virtual machine)

    but it would be nice to see if it does work and if the version on the servers is the same or different

    I can confirm it supports both Qi and PMA.

    Unfortunately I don't have one, that's why I asked. You can bet it will be one of the first things I try when I get my XL. I want to be sure I have something to flash back to in case I have a major catastrophe.

    Sweet. I currently have a couple of Qi chargers from my L920 days which I haven't been able to use with my L1520 but looking forward to put them to use with the 950, and I wasn't about to shell out more doe for PMA.
