    Actually, yes. With just a few registry tweaks, I have Internet Sharing plus MMS and Mobile Data working properly on T-Mobile. I've posted the required tweaks before, so if you're interested, just take a peak at my comment history. It should work for any GSM provider, though you'll need to substitute your network's APN info.

    Thanks bud. Will take a look as soon as my ativ se arrives. :)

    Is the upgrade failing to install or is the phone not recognizing that there are updates even available?
    No OTA updates available.... what a bummer..

    Something isn't right, there's no reason why you shouldn't be able to get the OTA updates. There may be a guide out there to flash to 8.1.1. I've never looked but that doesn't mean it can't be done.

    I've run into a snag and need to know if it's okay to proceed. I followed the steps to the letter, went to the insider app, applied for fast ring, then went to install updates and, instead of getting windows 10, I'm seeing an update for 8.10.14219.341. I can't retry the Insider update without installing the 8.10.14219 update, or else resetting the device and trying again. Which of these options would be safe, if any?

    My non scientific, personal opinion, would be to push the update and retry the insider app after it's finished. I'm not a professional and I didn't run into this issue, but it's what I would do.

    I thought I'd come back and provide my results for the sake of anyone else who might run into this.

    I was already thinking along the same line, so after your nudge I went ahead and pushed the update. After the device rebooted, I received a message that said there was one more step to get the device ready for windows 10, and that they would take care of it if I just connected to AC power. I did so, the device was configured and I was then able to download the 10581 update. I did so last night, and so far everything is really smooth. A few quirks, like occasional flickering and the Samsung WatchOn app doesn't work (which wasn't unexpected, since it's a Lumia software build and the Icon doesn't have an IR blaster. I never really used that feature so it didn't matter to me but, if for whatever reason, you can't live without that feature, that's something to think about. Also, I'm now not getting any haptic feedback when pressing the keys to the left and right of the home button. Again, insignificant and I'll gladly part with that for Windows 10, just wanted to be thorough. A huge thanks to you, Asellite, for taking the time to compile the work of those who discovered this method (a huge thanks to them as well) and composing a guide so easy anyone can follow it. My Ativ SE is in your debt.

    I forgot about the haptic feedback, but primarily because I had also turned it off when I had 8.1. I realized when I just installed 10 but quickly forgot about it

    Anyone else have updates for "call/message settings" and "APNs" popping up in the Store but erroring out with code 0x803f7000 when you try to download them?

    Ya, but it hasn't affected the settings so I don't really understand what's up

    So seeing as the "Shipping" version of Windows 10 Mobile (10586) was just pushed out today, I'm curious if any ATIV SE users will be upgrading to this release, and if so what their experiences are.

    It sounds like 10581 was pretty smooth for all that tried it, and if this shipping release is even better, I think I'm going to dive in. Any and all info from those updating is truly appreciated :)

    Thank you in advance!

    (Apologies for double post, just wasn't sure if all WM10 on ATIV SE users read both threads.)

    Great news and thanks for the update. Out of curiosity, how are you liking 10 vs 8.1 in general. I hear a lot of people complaining that the UI is not as smooth as 8.1 (almost Android-ish with hamburger menus, etc.) and some functionality has been removed. What are your thoughts so far? I'm on the fence and teetering on getting a Nexus phone vs keeping my ATIV SE (seeing as Verizon isnt planning on bringing any new Windows phone out for awhile, if ever). All info is truly appreciated!

    They updated today, so I guess it might have had something to do with the previous build

    Tbh I don't know why people would say that. I find things look alot more appealing, especially the new transparent tiles and such. Changes such as categorizing the settings menu, syncing of data such as wifi passwords between my w10 pc, tablet and my mobile phone are standouts no matter how simple it seems. I haven't really missed much in terms of features, but then again it all comes down to what you're doing with your device. I just know the os is snappy on this device, with almost ZERO pauses, more so than wp8.1

    Very happy to hear it. Sounds like I've got good reason to stick with the ATIV SE... at least a little longer. Looks like I will be updating my phone (and PC) over the Thanksgiving weekend when I have enough downtime for setup. There are still a few Apps I'd like to have (SiriusXM Player) and a few that need to be fixed, however I can live without them for now. (Not sure if I can stream Sirius XM via any of the web browsers).

    Final question, how is Cortana working with WM10? One of the features I love is Text functionality over Bluetooth, etc. Hopefully that is all still intact? Would be cool to have Hey Cortana functionality, but my guess is that it's still unusable on the ATIV SE due to hardware and it not being a Lumia.

    Thanks to all contributors.
    My ATIV SE has been updated to build 10586 and for the most part, it seems to be a keeper for me at least (as I couldn't stand the earlier builds of WM10).

    My only gripes are that:
    - the past, every time I used the restore from back up or upgrade from WP8.1, I found the phone to become very flaky, slow and exhibit weird issues after the restore. So this time, I went with a completely wiped system - but now, I don't have any of my back ups for call history and SMS and many of the apps
    * EDIT/UPDATE: SMS history came back after I selected "Sync messages between devices", but call history still hasn't recovered.
    - Bluetooth AVRCP is downgraded to v1.3 and it still isn't working properly (not showing track meta data). WP8.1 had 1.4 that showed both metadata and media browsing from a head unit in my car
    * EDIT/UPDATE: after deleting BT connections and re-pairing, it seems like at least the devices (phone and head unit) are now negotiating 1.3 and track meta data is working. It is still a bummer that we got downgrade to 1.3 from 1.4 (ie no media browsing capability)

    - no distinguishable live title for Outlook with account logos. Ditto for notification center. (ie can't tell which account has email pending, they all look the same)
    - some weird behaviour with apps crashing or not starting up - but that is not a big deal. Had other similar issues on 8.1 too (live tiles not updating, apps crashing and not starting)

    For now, will keep it a daily driver. Thanks a bunch!

    the same is happening to me with the apps now, I have to uninstall & then re-install 'em

    One question for all you guys (and gals) on 10. How's your cellular signal? I've had 10586 on a 925 and a One M8 and the signal cuts in and out a bit. BTW, this guide works perfectly on the HTC and in fact, it's easier to get running on T-Mobile or AT&T because the only reg edit needed is disabling the "HideMMSAPN". Another wonky radio issue is that a soft reset is needed after being on wi-fi to re-establish GSM. Mind you, this happened to both the HTC and the Nokia so I'm guessing it's a 10586 issue.

    Looks like a new build was just pushed out via Fast Ring. Would be interested to see if any improvements can be seen on the ATIV SE with the latest build.

    Thanks in advance!

    Well, I wanted to update this thread, to show my appreciation for those that contributed to help with this guide.

    I was one of the few that "mistakenly" received the W10 preview a few weeks back, before MS yanked it. I liked what I saw then, but cell only w/ no WiFi would be expensive...so root patch back to 8.1.1 is was for me.

    Then I forgot about it, until I was reading about the Mi4, and found this thread... followed the step-by-step to the letter...got the pre-W10 update...then 10586...then .11 update, and then finally, in the wee hours of the morning, I got .29 cumulative update...all OTA ;-)

    Totally thrilled. No issues at all that I can find. Cell, WiFi, bluetooth, messaging, email, calendar, Office, Groove, Pandora, even DiskStation apps all working great. Things load quick, very responsive, and after a real full day at work with tons of email, conference call, etc. battery was still over 65%...

    For those on the fence...you do not have any excuses any more.

    Thanks again to all of those that contributed and thanks for the great guide.

    Thanks for the update Techru! Can you provide any feedback on Cortana? Do you use it at all? I want to confirm she still works fine through Car Audio Bluetooth for Hands-Free Texting, etc. Also, can you use or activate "Hey Cortana" on the ATIV SE since it's using the ICON Windows Rom?

    Thanks in advance!
