    4. I get messages from 2 of my 4 email accounts multiple times a day saying my settings are out of date. They are not.
    I ran into this with a couple of my own accounts. What the issued turned out to be (for me at least) was using Yahoo mail and syncing the mailbox on both my phone and PC was triggering a bot alert on the Yahoo side. So the only way to clear this issue was to first login to Yahoo through the web site and take care of the bot captcha requirement. Next I had to change the settings on my phone and PC to adjust the sync settings to a less frequent time. It was defaulting to every 2 hours, but since the phone and PC were not polling at the same time, it looked to Yahoo like I was polling from different addresses every hour or so. Since I changed this setting to check for mail manually on my PC the problem has gone away.

    Keeping in mind, this was only an issue with Yahoo for me. I'm not sure if a similar solution would work for an outlook, hotmail, gmail or other provider accounts. If you are only syncing these particular accounts on your phone, you may want to test it by changing your mail polling to manual for a few days and see if that helps. Certainly that is not the perfect solution, but it might point you in the right direction to getting things working correctly.

    I have installed W10M insider preview (now on latest, updated several versions ago). Now I need to get it back to 8.1 and the problem is that recovery tool instantly crashes when I connect my phone to the PC. Is there any solution to this problem?
    Make sure you connect your phone to the PC when it's off. The running WDRT should pick it up on boot. If that is not the problem, uninstall the windows device recovery tool, remove the Phone driver form device manager when your phone is plugged in. Reboot. Let device manager pick up drivers for your phone after boot when you connect phone to PC. Unplug your phone, turn it off. Install WDRT and try again. If it still doesn't work, try on a different PC.
    good luck

    Please let us know how is your phone performing after the hard reset. I have my L1020 on 10586.63 and it works perfectly with great battery life.
    This few days, I've been experiencing a more reliable battery life, one thing worth noting: the usage has been reduced.
    Last friday, I decided to measure it and the battery usage was around 10% per hour. (sometimes more, sometimes less) it lasted from 8am to 5pm and I still had around 30% battery.
    The major culprit is WhatsApp... and the screen (for obvious reasons). I use WhatsApp quite often during the day. Also, mobile data uses 11.4% in my case, I've seen you have 0% of mobile data. That's interesting.

    Another thing worth noting: This friday, I forgot my charger (qi charger, USB port is dead on the lumia 1020) and I had around 58% charge. In order to save charge, I decided to use WhatsApp web and by mid day, I still had like 30-40% of the charge (I still used the phone for one or two calls or a little facebook). So, Whatsapp Web seems to be a real battery saver.

    Other options that I have checked:
    - No glance (Also, for some reason is crashing to home screen)
    - All mails are updated hourly, Notification is on
    - Calendar notifications are on
    - Facebook notifications are turned on
    - WhatsApp notifications are turned On

    I'm charging the phone at the moment. I'll write tomorrow to report the battery usage.

    Wait a moment: are you using whatsapp web ON PHONE directly???? Never heard before
    EDIT
    In fact, you can't. Simply you used whatsapp FROM YOUR PC, not Lumia.
    Saying Whatsapp web is a phone battery saver is really misleading....

    The 2nd culprit is Skype when you forgot to logout, even without background app allowed or installed

    Sorry Maurizio, I think I didn't explain myself very clear hehe.
    What you said in your edit is what I meant. Using Whatsapp web from my PC

    If you use WhatsApp web from your PC, you will use your phone less and this will result in a better battery life.

    Sorry if my words were misleading

    Regarding Skype, I never use it :( it's just too slow. I rather use the messaging app.

    Thank you for the details. Its really helpful to understand our phones better.

    I have WiFi in most of the places. So I am using WiFi all the time and mostly my sim is used in my L1520.

    Ah, that explains :)

    Now, regarding my battery.
    Using WhatsApp Web from my PC has been extremely useful. Yesterday, at 12:30pm, I picked my phone from the qi charger and it was at 100%. I do not receive many calls and checked facebook like twice during the day, maybe trice. I did use it, lightly but I did used it and by 10pm I still had 43% of the battery. I then turned on Airplane mode and by today's morning I had 37% battery

    I think I am satisfied with the battery life. If the people from IT blocks WhatsApp web... well, that's going to suck. I must note that while the phone screen is in use, the battery does die rather quickly (Playing Mahjong, constantly checking facebook, constantly checking whatsapp, reading webcomics or books, things like that) but I guess that's only logical.

    I think that sometimes we forget how much of a battery killer the screen is... and how much we use it during the day.

    The last culprit is the location service ;) but it's necessary for a lot of apps

    Found an answer to getting hotspot working on the phone in the following:

    answers.microsoft.com/en-us/insider/forum/insider_wintp-insider_web/mobile-hotspot-does-not-work-on-phone-drops-on/592c3c50-7d4e-45f4-9392-dd45bcd3fece?page=7

    Add the necessary verbiage at the beginning for a link since I don't have 10 yet to post links.

    Tried the advice to remove all known WiFi networks on the phone and the hotspot started working. I'm using a 925 on the .71 latest Insider update.

    Good Luck

    BE AWARE: Alarm app doesn't work well. It sleeps right through the scheduled wake time. Only comes on after I unlock the screen!

    On the other hand, battery life seems good so far. For the first time in long while phone doesn't feel warm just sitting on charging pad. Maybe they killed many background processes including the alarm.

    Clear and set again alarms and ringtone, it works well, you have to do everytime after an o.s. and app update

    it works only if i click that event. then it will show on the month view. i just installed another 3rd party calendar called 'one calendar' which (need to log on and sync by itself, but works beautifully). looks like there is still bug with the system calendar.

    Yesterday when hitting the windows button I got 'resuming', and was not able to get out of it. This was after going to the messaging app from a notification. I closed everything, else, still no luck. I could launch apps with Cortana, but the start screen didn't come back until I restarted. Weird, hope it's a one off.. WP10 10586.29, 950XL dual sim.

    Sometimes happens with the new Messages + Skype app, I hate that new app.
    I resolve with long tapping back key, and swipin down Messages app, for returning Start and re open Messages normally
