    Cortana was a ***** to find, but I assure you, she's there. I don't remember now exactly where or how I found her, but it may have been in Settings> Speech, inking & typing, then choose the option for Windows and Cortana to get to know your voice.
    I found "hey cortana" under extras in settings but it keeps telling me I must have her turned on( which I do). the cortana app itself works fine but I have become addicted to "hey cortana" and am having terrible withdrawal symptoms!!! very frustrating. honestly though, i'm pretty happy with this build on my 930. it obviously needs some tweeks but compared to the nightmare that 10080 was, this is smooth sailing. i'll look at the speech,inking and typing stuff, thanks!

    Good for you and glad it's working. People sharing the problems they are having though, are NOT whining! Just looking for assistance and answers in a forum about their phone.
    I agree with your assertion. People don't whine, but share problems and solutions.

    Anyway, after a day, I think the phone is settled down pretty nice and easy. The issues I face are already documented all over the forums. But for me, none of them are deal breakers. The mixed bag is

    1. Appearance of Lumia Classic Camera (Good).
    2. Slight distortion of 'dots' when type phone PIN. Sometimes , instead of numeric pad, the alphabetical keyboard appears for typing PIN. Have to move back and then try again.
    3. Here maps does not open at first. However , once the offline maps are downloaded after firing up Microsoft maps, Here maps came up.( Here drive+ was always starts though - can download offline maps from it's setting ).
    4. For certain applications, Windows try hard to prevent it from crashing!

    @mary beth, Cortana has to re-learn your voice in order to operate. It was only after I ran through that exercise that Cortana began working regularly.

    @divyan, the ones that bother me most are in Outllook Mail. Primarily not having a unified inbox and having to switch within the app between my accounts to see incoming mail and not having an accurate (or often any) indication on the Start screen of the number of new e-mails. For that matter, even when they do show up, with the new Icon the number is in such tiny mice type that it's difficult to see.

    I also don't like not having a separate Year view in Calendar, but having to scroll through the months. Over all I don't find the views in Calendar as useful or easy to see what's going on as in 8.1.

    OneNote is pretty cool though, I love the new look and thumbnails and find it much easier to use (once everything downloads that is).

    Hi All.
    Just signed up to post on here
    Using build 10136 as my daily driver, its a huge leap forward from 10080. Had to roll back to 8.1 to get the 10136 update. Feels much closer to final with this version. The music player is a great little app. Sure there are still a few glitches and bugs buts its definitly usable as a daily now. The only annoying bug i cant seem to fix is the notification sounds for sms, had them working but now they are gone and cant get them back. Dont really want to roll back and install again just to fix. Anyone sitting on the fence waiting to take the plunge I'd say give it a go. I wouldnt have recommended 10080!!

    Just upgraded my ICON. Not too bad; smooths out the longer I use it.

    One major problem; SMS fine, no MMS. Had my son send me an image; got the image but can't open it. Any suggestions.

    Thanks. I was finally able to get to that screen but the trainer refuses to accept my voice. Damn. Cortana works fine. She can talk to me and I can talk to her, no problem. Very frustrating as I used "hey cortana" multiple times a day.

    Download Microsoft photo app from store (beta). Once installed, you should be able to open pictures attachment from mms.

    24 hours after downloading 10136 and on the whole I am really pleased with this build on my 930. Will NOT be rolling back to 8.1 this time around, as I had to do on the abomination that was 10080. I am typing this from my laptop though, because Windows Central app won't let me sign in on my phone. Very frustrating.

    First go into settings >privacy>speech,inking,typing. Make sure you have checked "get to know me". If you already have it will say"stop getting to know me". Make sure "search" is set to run in background and that location is on. "Hey Cortana" is in "extras" which is at the bottom of the "settings" app. I found the "hey Cortana" setting but unfortunately it does not register my voice when I try to "train" her. Maybe you will have better luck. Does Cortana work for you other than the "hey Cortana" feature?

    Re: Notification sounds...i think we are stuck with not having them available in this build. In another thread someone suggested an app called "Melodia" to assign sounds but I haven't tried it.

    cortana works ok, now I will try to find and train hey Cortana.
    Problem is with extras + info app which I don't have in settings. Also have problem with that app in store and store beta.

    I am so tempted to try this build on my 930 but I "think" I'm getting a Microsoft Band tomorrow for Father's Day and didn't want compatibility issues between this build and the Band. Anyone have a Band using this build?

    I'm using the band with this build (Lumia 1520). It stays connected but the notification is hit or miss.

    Motion data does not work on Lumia 930 hence step counter is not working , if you go to settings--> Extra--> Motion Data , the screen appears and blanks out . Are any of you facing the same issue ?
