    It makes me laugh when uber serious nerds say that such and such command is "dangerous" - LMAO! No, standing on the edge of the grand canyon on roller skates IS DANGEROUS... "dangerous" - LOL - try to be taken seriously when exaggerating SO much? Let us evaluate the situation - "risky to data", yes, but "dangerous"? o__O

    Lulz.
    I've told you a billion times not to exaggerate.

    My Lumia 1020 is at 80% battery on low usage after 24 hours. So far it has been stable for me.
    What do you mean by low usage? And how is that possible? I use whatsapp for 10 minutes and battery is down by 10%

    My cellular data usage by "System" have increased a lot after updating to .29 (almost 850 MBs whereas rest all combined equals roughly 200 MBs as per Data Usage app, I mostly use wifi for any heavy data usage). Battery also seems to be not that good after the update and phone is mostly warm.
    Anyone facing similar issues, I am running .29 on Lumia 520.

    I've removed UC browser and now I want to see how the battery behaves for a few days. It was taking 60% of battery usage according to the battery saver app. Pictures took 10% and the rest was store, whatsapp etc. This behavior has been there for a while now ever since I started the insider program with 10512

    Downside is I can't browse for anything anymore nor check facebook

    Data usage it's obvious, it shows 30 days cumulative. The only single upgrade download is 750 MB then add the core apps update.
    I got a 520 too, it needs two / three days for sync / updating. Then check all background apps and log out skype account, not simply close it because it stays always online in Messaging app

    The data usage is for 10 days only. I have most of background tasks disabled (including messaging), and use very limited Skype, few text messages per day. Messaging though have separate entry in data usage.
    As stated, my phone mostly is connected to wifi except 3-4 hours a day (when I am not in range of known network).
    Between my two posts, another 10 MBs have been used (and I even did not unlock my phone). Phone does something in background, consuming data. This could be the reason for low battery and warm phone. I will logout from Skype and will check again.

    Check also if photos are uploading or downloading to / from OneDrive (uncheck "Show only onedrive photos") and in OneDrive, uncheck Video in upload settings. Check store -> mi downloads -> Updates

    This version has become unstable for me on my 640XL.. Battery has become lousy and things like I can't get into sound settings to change messaging sound, Settings/Personalization/sounds/Manage app sounds takes me to Notifications & Actions instead of App sounds...
    I did a hard reset but didn't help.. Seriously thinking of going back to 8.1...

    I went to this version from 8.1. I am sure this has been covered, but in most of my apps, when the keyboard pops up to type, the app goes black and cannot see it or what I am typing. Any ideas?

    I can tell you right now, my experience with Windows 10 Mobile is much better on the 950 than it was on my 640. I was using the 640 as a daily driver up until last week and didn't find the experience all that bad. Especially for a technical preview. And where are you seeing the 950 priced at $700? Now you're just over exaggerating.
    Really? The 650 is $598 before taxes and fees ..... Heaven forbid one would pick the XL . In addition I'm not investing without some type of insurance on the device... Need a back cover to make your "flagship" feel like a flagship.. add another $$$ so $700 is very REAL.

    If the device and OS worked as expected.... (Can I get a wake up alarm please ? Can I stay connected via Bluetooth to my vehicle and actually hear music ? Get notification sounds reliably? ) then maybe it is a good "value" ... Unfortunately I'm not so nave to believe that all these issues are "phone specific" I've been in IT for 25 years... please.. those are excuses. This is the SAME code that was just shipped to a "production" phone (650/XL) ... not impressing me and I'm a LONG time MS advocate. I have been a Sys Admin and manager of all things MS (and still am).. You want me to support/recommend W10M to my organization as an IT Manager? Please. There is point at which you need stuff to "Just work" for daily tasks.

    Not really interested in a two year old OS (8.1) ... so what are my options? Android (security nightmare). IOS (almost unmanageable). or explain to those that watch me struggle to get things to work (most of them IT professionals) with a device that should "just work" for those tasks (can I have an alarm please?)

    FWIW.... No alarm again this morning and I did a hard reset (PITA) yesterday afternoon.. Bluetooth still hit or miss.. Cortana is so slow for reading and responding to SMS that might just turn that off... :(

    I am NOT complaining I'm stating facts here. And one of them is there's a point at which.. you just have to move to something else. Got BLACKBERRY ? I personally turned off multiple BES servers. MS is well on their way as well....

    /rant

    PS .... I didn't even start on the "App Gap" issue ;-)

    My out of pocket for the 950 was a little over $300, including fees, taxes, a Mozo back and protection plan on contract. The iPhone 6S is $299 before adding anything. In the US, this is the price most people will pay. Also, let's talk about that "flagship" feel... who do you know that doesn't put a case on those easily scratched and dinged metal-bodied phones? Everyone does. Delicate phone requiring chubby rubber/plastic case = flagship feel? smh

    I get a wake up alarm every day, my BT stays connected to my Pioneer appRadio and I play music from my phone every day, and all my notification sounds are reliable. I don't even get your Cortana complaint. I use it to read/send texts in my car daily and it's normal conversational speed.

    I'm sorry you're having issues, but I'm certainly not.

    After i`ve done a hard reset and used the phone for a few days i can finally say that this is a build worth for RTM (at least for my Lumia 930). No bugs, no fast battery drain even when not in use. The only thing that still bugs me is that i can`t get the FB app to 10.1 .. for some reason i`m stuck with the v 8.3.7

    And i totally got to love the 250% text size. Having 4 rows on the screen and getting to see more apps when using Task switcher is a charm. It takes a bit to get used to the smaller fonts but after a day or two you won`t go back to 3 rows.

    I admit that 3 or 4 builds ago i was pretty sceptic about Windows 10 every being ready or as good as 8.1 but with this build i`m convinced that MS will manage to bring a very good OS, all that remains is developers to bring more apps... core social apps are a must to bring costumers, the rest of the apps will flow by themselves with time.

    Same issue here on a Lumia 1520. I had to revert back to Windows 8.1 and then upgrade to 10.0.10586.29.
    Then do a hard reset.
    Works fine now.

    At this point in my very long technology career, resetting/flashing/DFU'ing/whatever-ing and restoring mobile phones has become second nature to me. I never quite understand the near fear, panic and worry people demonstrate with doing these things - a hard reset and restore is mere muscle memory to me on iOS/Android/Windows Phone, as it is on a PC with regards to backing up and restoring with "Aomei Backupper" - one just calmly moves one's wrist, executes the long established muscle memory recall, taps a few times subconsciously and carries on with what they're doing at the same time. No big deal, just another day in technology - this is a routine just like washing your face or making coffee - no focused thought or excessive effort or ANY kind of "panic" required :)
    My only gripe is that as an Xbox Music Pass member, I can only delete one Music Pass device every 30 days. Too many and guess what, I can't download music!

    On Lumia 720 works smooth. A little slow because of the 512Mb limitation but fine. Sometimes (1 or 2 times a day) the phone freezes and you need to press volume down + power buttons to reboot. All in all it is usable.
