    Here's some interesting news to share with everyone. I had moved to the 10.0.10586.36 version while a member of the Insider Program. I had decided to leave the Insider Program and did so and also removed the Insider App from my 950 Unlocked Dual Sim.

    I saw the new firmware update that has been posted by Microsoft for the 950 & 950XL, so I decided to backup and do a Hard Reset. The reset completed, I signed into my account and performed a restore. All went well while pausing the Store Updates. I checked the System>Phone Updates and got the message that the Phone did not have any updates.

    While poking around in settings I decided to go into System and then to About and then to More Info and to my amazement it restored my version not as stock .0 and not as Update .29, but instead it restored the phone as version 10.0.10586.36!

    I am doing the happy dance on the ceiling!

    So, I am running 950 unlocked with the latest version..... and no bugs at all!

    Hope you all have the same experience as I did with the Hard Reset and still maintain the latest build you were on... it made life much simpler..Singing Christmas Songs now!

    Merry Christmas!

    That's how a hard reset works. Hopefully this helps people who didn't know though.

    lol You haven't removed the Insider build that's all. A hard reset won't remove OS updates.

    If you really want to leave the Insider Program (or remove the Insider build more exactly), you need to flash your device with WDRT. And you will end with .29.

    Do I need to remove it in order to get future updates?
    It's running so smooth I hate to change it
    Please pipe in Rob and help me out here!
    It's up to us all to share so that we don't get frustrated with the slow(so it seems) response from the greater Microsoft!

    You will receive future OS updates, but maybe not FW ones (only when official OS catches up with the one you have)

    Nope, based on my Insider experience on 3 devices for a year ^^

    .36 rolled out to all
    That is not true at this stage. Only to Insider devices (including 950 and XL) but not retail. Retail 950 and XL get .29 only (I've just checked again with WDRT and WUpdate right now).

    Only for Insiders mate. Even WC said, as an update to the same news, that it seemed unclear was it limited to Insiders or not. It is limited to Insiders. My 950 is out of the program, no update seen, only .29. And confirmed by a lot of 950 users here, or French forums.

    An update on how the 950 is doing after a day of being reset and running version .36.
    After almost 12 hours today battery is at 72%, audio hadn't skipped a bit or made a pop, Bluetooth works superb, wifi has remained consistent, LTE signal has been strong all day and the Edge browser is pulling up much faster. All in all a much better experience then before the update. No firmware update yet.

    Can you clear something up for me. You didn't see the new firmware update until you removed yourself from insider?
