    After over a week with 10166, the minor bugs have been getting to me and I am going to have to roll back to 8.1
    Issues.
    1. Cortana does not work, she will not answer to reply to a text, she crashes after telling me there is a call
    2. There is a bug with the Pebble Notifications app, so you cant select apps to get notifications from.
    3. Battery Drain on this build is common, maybe about 75% of what I would get with 8.1
    4. Apps just get errors when trying to update and with a major problem with an app, it wont reinstall.

    I thought about it, although I like 10 a lot and enjoy the new features (it's enough to question my roll back), I just need a phone that works 100% and with the failure of apps updating today, WHEN I NEEDED IT. I need to roll back....Crap 2-3 hours of reinstalling apps again....fun, fun fun...

    Build 10166 Touchscreen almost always freezes after receiving/making call. hard re-set or pull battery only option.

    This issue seemed resolved in Build 10149 after experiencing all kinds of Start Menu hang, Touch screen freezes in Build10136.

    had no problem with store and all the updates that MS pushed yesterday, but touch screen freeze so bad now rolling back to 8.1

    This is my only major issue with this build, shame coz other than that its very very good

    You can pin accounts on the screen. Just go to the mail app and when u are about to change accounts just tap and hold and it will pin that account.

    Thanks. I know how to do it, but I cannot. My mail app behaves like if accounts are already pinned. Therefore it offers me an option to unpin the account. Which is obviously not pinned... Even deleting and creating account again does not help...

    I have experienced it several times, especially with the latest update. Once I lost all the pinned inboxes from screen but the status showed it as pinned. Restarting mobile worked in the above case. Still have issues with pinning the Oulook inbox separately.

    Read several pages back and could not see a similar question.

    Running 10166 on a 1520 and noticed that none of my photos taken in July are showing in the Camera Roll. June and May are there, but nothing for the current month, when I collapse the months it doesn't show July either. I did notice that the Albums view shows the last taken pic from July as the thumbnail for the Camera Roll, but when I open the Camera Roll it very briefly flashes and then only shows June. All the July items show in Collection view

    Under settings I have Linked Duplicates 'On', Sources show "Pictures" (cannot be changed), Show my photos and videos from OneDrive is "Off"

    Anyone else experiencing this problem or have a solution? I've done soft resets, toggled the OneDrive option and it still isn't showing the current month's photos

    How about file manager? Can you see thumbnails and access those photos?

    Yes I can, thanks for the information Teo. So the photos are on the device, just not displayed via the app.

    NP, you can use it as a temporary solution ;)

    BTW: have you tried to hit file information and see if correct date is shown for 'problematic' photos?

    Most serious issue for me right now is the Messaging app.

    A lot of times notifications don't work, live tile does not update, then sometimes I cannot send texts and have to restart the phone. When this happens, I fi d some old texrs that were late for at about 15 mins.

    Also, is there a way to reset the contents of the live tiles like you can in Windows 8? My email tiles at some point today did stooped updating and it is showing mail have long read and erased.
    First, please include your phone model in any post!

    I have the same issue with my 1520. SMS sometimes stops working. It seems the duplication of sent messages has stopped from Build 10149, but I get the suspend on my messaging. A soft reset does the trick.

    This is the biggest problem I have with Build 10166.

    Mostly it is running as my daily driver with two email accounts, lots of SMS and FB Messenger, Skype, etc.

    WHY HAVEN'T YOU VOTED YET FOR THIS ONE??????????????????????

    This affects YOU in one way or another, though some would "say there are many ways to skin a cat", well, some of the ways to skin it would make you scratch your head!
    Voted! This is one of the dumb things of Windows Phone, and they don't allow 3rd party contact app.

    Yes the dates are correct on the files, very odd

    Strange indeed... well, if nothing else, you can try to rename or move some of them to saved folder for example, just to see if app will re-index them and include in collection or wait for the next update and hope it will be fixed :)

    Cortana was using 53% of my battery resources... I switched it off and now my battery backup is pretty good.. But I do want to use Cortana, hopefully they will do something about it in the next build..

    so annoyed, we must be close to 101240 but as of today the start screen boot loop is causing massive issues. Im not sure why? previously it would be 5-10 minutes, now I have been trying for about 5 hours on 1020? its crashed a few times. now im leaving it alone and still not opening start!!

    its got another 2 hours, then when I get in its back to 8.1 for good! 10166 has been nothing but problems from the moment the phone first turned on!!!!!

    This build has been rough for me to use as a main device.

    In the past week, Bluetooth stops working correctly as the other person can hear me but I cant hear them anymore. I switch to speakerphone and things are fine (annoying when you're in the car driving) Happened 5x-6x

    During random usage, the top part of the screen goes black and everything moves to the middle of the screen. Reboot fixes this but it's happened 3x.

    Email just stops working. Says it's sync'd yet I have new emails but they aren't showing up. Reboot sometimes fixes. It's been very unreliable with email to the point I have to send a second email asking for a response to make sure the first one successfully went out.

    Text messages are hit and miss. Often sending a message causes the messaging app to crash.

    Have had many random lockups. random self reboots - Lumia 830

    This build had been stable for me. Everything works fine. Slightly laggy tho.


    I don't like the settings page layout. It is too complicated. Anyone have any idea on how to make it better?

    Build 10166 seems ok for my Lumia930. I'm just having a bug that doesn't create folders on the start screen. Also, some apps still needs to be updated.

    I have a 1520 and I get a looping when starting before the apps show and then when I make a call it freezes and I have to turn off the phone every time........... it was so annoying that I tried hard reset (power down up down power) and then it didn't work all I kept getting was a sad face :( and I had to try to restore the phone which went back to WP8......... took half a day to get everything back again.............. and guess what....... STILL the same issue.

    Everything else seems to work but the phone........ I am weary to try another hard reset........ it's a pain for now

    Everything going to the middle of your screen, isn't that just that "long press on windows-key function"? To bring down the top of your screen? Like with iPhones?

    Okay, here's my take on the build (Lumia 635):

    I basically use my phone for college work, calling, texting, and the occasional game. I do not use skype or any video call apps. I found some bugs that would be more of an occasional annoyance than a real show-stopper. Here's the list:

    Lock Screen: I changed the lock screen notification icons to an email. When I tried to change them back to anything (blank, other app), the settings app crashed. No big deal for me, I just check the live tile instead.

    Outlook Mail: Speaking of live tiles, there's a bug in Outlook Mail that you have to be real careful about. You can pin an email folder to the start screen from Outlook Mail. However, if you want to un-pin it, be sure to un-pin it from the Outlook Mail app only. If you unpin it from the start screen, Outlook Mail will still say that it is still pinned and you will never be able to re-pin that folder again. I warned you, be careful with this one. However, this app does fix the annoying issue I found in 8.1 where if you sync your email inside the app and new mail comes in, the live tile on your start screen will still say "1" until you close the mail app and re-open it.

    Gmail in the Outlook Mail app works, but you must run with the default mail settings. That is, mail import/export settings. You can still choose which folders sync and set the account to have notifications in the action center. I sent myself several "Hi" test emails to prove this works.

    Battery saver: live tile works, but it doesn't refresh until you open the battery saver app.

    Cortana: Does not have a live tile yet.

    Pictures: this build will not see photos on your SD card when choosing backgrounds unless they are in the same folder structure as on your main phone (Pictures/Camera Roll OR Pictures/Saved Pictures)

    Camera: Lumia Camera will not update either. It is still functional, but it does not update. Office Lens still works perfectly either way. For me, any camera app is doable.

    Animations: They still need some work, but what I am looking for is functionality. A little animation glitch here and there means nothing to me.

    Store works almost perfectly, besides the note below. Crashes very little. Apps are downloadable. The full Office mobile suite works, including PDF viewer and Office Lens.

    Very Important: Make sure you remove all the excess bloatware that your carrier loads on your phone. It will not update in the Windows 10 store. I learned that even if you re-flash your phone to 8.1 first with the Windows Phone Recovery Utility, your carrier bloatware will still be on your phone.

    Overall, I can say that this is a very stable build. I'm glad I installed it.

    Start Screen Crashing / Stuck on Loading.

    I am using Lumia 930.

    I updated from 10149 to 10166 today as I am on slow ring. After update, my start screen wouldn't load. It will say loading, than loading message will disappear for a second and then it will appear again. This went on for very long. Even after couple of soft resets it didn't fix. I was able to use action centre, so I chose to hard reset.
    That helped. My phone worked for 6-7 hours, backup got restored, apps got installed. Then I enabled double tap to wake up, and disabled vibration on soft buttons in Touch settings. Vibration setting required restart, and after restart, the problem reappeared. Start screen just keeps crashing with loading message.I switched back the settings which I changed, then soft-reset. It took a fair amount of time to load the start screen, but eventually it did work.

    So in your case, if it's an update and start screen won't load, try disabling double tap to wake up and maybe glance too. See if it works before doing hard reset.
