    I'm about to install it. Currently have 10572 installed and one of my annoyances is Call + SMS filter simply doesn't work. Does it work in 10581? Curious if anyone has tried. Pretty sure it's not though.

    BONUS - my USAA app started working again. I'm glad it started working without USAA having to go in and update the app, since only Jesus knows how long that would take.

    OMG, I had USAA for years. Their online services were awful. Constantly had to reset my password month after month, just to login. I can't imagine what dealing with their app would be like. lol

    I have not had the problems you describe - only great service, and no website problems. App support is the only problem.

    It's been since 2009 since I used them for insurance. I have one credit card with them now. They offer great services.

    Meanwhile...tick tick tick...still waiting on this upgrade to 10581 to complete. I wish there was a faster method, but I'd rather wait than deal with some of the brinking I've seen with Android phones! I have too many apps backed up.

    so far great. Won't know about battery life for a few days. Icon's battery on 8.1 wasn't the best. You have to make sure you close apps running in the background because they will chew the battery down.

    This is an unfortunate but true reality. Even on the OS that our device was created for, the battery life was always a disappointment.

    Don't get me wrong, I love my Icon. Just not the battery.

    Battery life seems to be hit or miss. I've been thrilled with it since day one.

    Haven't taken the plunge on 10 yet but I'm getting very tempted.

    24 hours and not a single SMS has been restored. I understand this issue started back during the last build. I've changed every possible setting, and it won't get anything past a few in 2013. I even recovered back to 8.1 to make sure all my texts were there, and it populated years of texts within a few hours. Anyone figure out how to get SMS to restore fully on an ICON and the current build?

    If you're 8.1, I'd update first, then wipe (About > Reset) and come back and start over.
    That's how I did it to get the cleanest install. I haven't tested but on 10872 I tried an upgrade and it was full of bugs. Hard reset fixes everything.

    Honestly, you need to read up because I'm not 100% sure. They never give exact information.
    I think the latest update guarantees that you won't need use the Windows Recovery Tool (program) and USB to fall back and reload 8.1 when updating from one build of W10 to the next.

    The upgrade/update process is still "beta" in my opinion. The actual OS is definitely almost RTM in it's current state. Very few bugs I've found.

    Consider that a lot of restores are going on now. Pretty sure mobile apps/onedrive/messaging/skype are using the same services and servers as desktop full versions of windows. I've seen more activity in installing beta mobile w10 then I've seen in months. Lots of people are trying it.

    That said, my photos have not "sync'd" from onedrive. When I open Photos and OneDrive, it is continuously syncing... for a week.

    Did you Hard Reset when you updated/upgraded from previous version of W10 or 8.1?


    Others have said messaging has been slow to sync for them too.
    Do you do a lot of MMS messages? Media in messages? Audio in messages?

    Also, I think messaging is definitely stored in Outlook.com accounts.
    Is your Microsoft Outlook.com email account FULL or loaded with media attachments?

    Finally, they're integrating messaging with skype (you probably know - just mentioning for troubleshooting).
    You have Skype setup correct?
    If you do have skype, make sure your don't have too many messages in there.

    Just some troubleshooting food for thought. I'd wait if I were you, but if no messages by tomorrow, try another Hard Reset.

    I'm running 10581 on my Icon, it's been working wonderfully. Did a straight update from 8.1, no reset. Only issues I'm having are: I can't train hey cortana and sometimes after powering on my phone the screen is unresponsive but a restart fixes it. Battery was awesome yesterday but today is looks back to normal.

    I've experienced some issues where apps won't launch or will crash. Powering off/on resolves the issue. I have the same build running on my M8 and have not seen the problem there. Anyone else have this issue?

    I am myself having what i thought was touchscreen issues but it may be that the apps i tap wont launch. Observing for now.



    The scrolling down on the action center is also slow to repsond sometumes. Again I thought it was a hardware issue because i bought this Icon from ebay.

    Anyone else with this problem?

    Here's some feedback from my Icon so far:

    Plex; intermittent flashes watching a video, any video like very 1-2 seconds you can see a frame flashed from the video and it appears to be upside-down.

    Outlook Mail; connecting to Gmail and trying to go into your drafts folder to bring up a draft email causes Outlook Mail to crash.

    Microsoft Podcast App; crashes when attempting to download an episode from a podcast, any podcast.

    Camera; I don't know what they did here, but low-light photographs are spectacular! A real improvement over the previous iterations of the camera app on Win8.

    Hey Cortana; Voice recognition is not available on your device...could be some setting I need to find to enable this, but just opening Cortana and using voice to search works fine.

    My stock podcast app works with little if any issues. Maybe uninstall and reinstall it.

    Hey Cortana works for me. Fired up first time I enabled. Only issue I've had is if I disable it then reenable, I have to re-ad my name in About Me.

    I had to hard reset in order to have "Hey Cortana" finish training. Post hard reset, I am having very few issues with 10581 :)

    Does anyone know if VZ Backup Assistant contacts are restoring on the phone after updating? I updated several builds back but had to revert to 8.1 because my most of my contacts are from Backup Assist and would not restore. (I save my new contacts to Outlook) I want to update but I don't want to be without all those contacts.

    I've always had stability problems with Podcasts...it like crashes within 10 seconds...if I want to add a feed, I'd better do it in 10 seconds or it crashes... :(

    They do get restored, but sometimes it can take a while to make that first connection with the server.

    Just installed the new Windows 10 build 10581, and I have a question - for the next build that is coming next week (supposedly), do we have to use the windows insider preview installer or can we just a "check for updates" on the latest build to get the update?

    Also, is it recommended to do a hard reset after each new build is installed?
