    Having issues with Windows Hello on .5 / 950 XL - It never starts since the upgrade, I only get a message on the lock screen stating "swipe up to dismiss".
    Has anyone else had this issue?

    Doesn't seem to help. I've tried do remove and retrain it as well. Might have to try a Hard reset...

    I really hope they fix the keyboard on this. The Swype function (whatever it is called on WP) is absolutely atrocious. It worked just fine on 8.1, so I really don't understand how they could go this far backwards with the technology. Any word longer than around six letters has about a 0% chance of being interpreted correctly. Even if I sit there repeatedly typing the word while making sure to perfectly connect the letters, it still doesn't register it -- not even in the top 8 or whatever number of suggestions it offers! I know there are other posts about this on here. Does anyone know if MS is aware of this problem and has acknowledged that they are working on it?
    I defended Word Flow couple weeks ago but now I can't. It really seems to have gotten much worse. Like almost unusably bad because there are so many words I can't swipe anymore. And it's not like it's mixing up very close words like "have" and "gave" and I can just tap on the 2nd choice given. I swipe "responsive" and it gives me "Rosie" and just a bunch of other short words. WTH?

    So I just had a strange thing happen. Had the "No Internet" wifi bug so I tried toggling wifi off and on. It wouldn't let me turn wifi back on. After trying for a few minutes, I decided to just power off the phone. First of all, it took 10 full minutes for the Goodbye screen to disappear, then the phone restarted by itself. 959XL DS.

    I had the looooong goodbye when the phone did a restart after downloading the FW update (I had to stop myself from doing a soft restart).

    Did the new FW change your life? It did not change mine, despite the fact that DTTW works great (and I'm happily using it).

    I only have two small issues on Redstone: The first one is the alarm volume is super low; seems like it's locked and can't be adjusted as in 8.1 or Threshold. The second is that when my screen times out, it doesn't gradually dim before going out; it goes from bright to off. Minor nuance, but I was so used to the gradual dim that at first, it surprised me. I thought something was really wrong with my phone.

    Did you give the alarm some time? It starts really quiet and gradually ramps up to 100% - at least that's what it does on my phones

    Weird issue today, not sure if this happened after the FW update yesterday or the latest Redstone build, but my ringtone has changed from the one I set to some other ringtone (I assume one that comes on phone). I hope this is a bug rather than a feature of upgrading, a bit annoying that it's done this for no apparent reason.

    Only issue (hiccup) I've experienced is that after an Outlook update, one of the seven emails accounts on my phone (the most used account) went into the perpetual spinning circles. A restart, followed by a short error message, took care of it. I will, however, be putting the 950XL with the latest FW and build through a full dress rehearsal while on a business trip: Maps, Onenote, Outlook, WiFi connect ability, Bluetooth, Cortana, Camera, Battery life, the full gamut (oh, I almost forgot...and the ability to receive phone calls";^).

    Since this morning's Outlook update, I find the Calendar live tile (the medium-sized square one) does not show appointments. If I switch to the larger rectangular tile, they show up. Also, related to the same update, I think, I noticed this morning that the number of unread emails showed on my glance screen but not the email icon. Just the digit. Left feedback for both issues.

    I've noticed this as well. I've had to back up my morning alarm by 2 minutes, because it takes that long to get loud enough to wake me up.

    This gradual volume increase is on purpose, and has been an oft requested feature for the alarm. It causes your body to wake more naturally without startling you out of your sleep.

    Test it out. Pick out a song for the alarm that will last 3 minutes. You'll find it won't reach full volume until the end of the song. Use a shorter song, it will get louder faster.

    Another issue is that all my contact pictures in the "People" app have vanished... again!!! Anyone know how to get these back as I'd rather not have to re-assign photos to contacts all over again, very time consuming!

    That's a feature, before some people removed battery before phone finished switching off >.<

    Yes, I understand. My point was that the Goodbye yesterday lasted much, much longer than any other time I had powered down the phone. It was long enough to make me worry.

    I know I've had a couple of long ones too. Indeed, you get worried and the temptation to do something just rises and rises! What to do? You watch the clock- look at the phone - the clock - the phone -the clock. Time for some Jack Black.

    A lumia is a little notebook. Consider that. Had ever your seen your notebook closing always at the same time? ;)

    Its grayed out still and doesn't show on the start screen.

    Never used it before and never seen a tile on the start screen for it or stumbled over any settings for it, but...
    1. Went to Settings
    2. Typed App in the Search Bar and got the App Corner Settings
    3. Got the App Corner Settings and selected to pin the tile to the Start Screen
    4. Went back to Start Screen; the Tile is there. NOT grayed out
    5. Selected it and it took me to Apps Corner setup.
    6. Selected 4 apps and selected some settings
    7. Pressed the on-screen (bottom) arrow to continue and the Settings tells I have to wait till the apps are installed
    8. I only selected 4 small apps, but that's where the settings stay - "...wait till the apps are installed."
    I gave up. Sorry PPC Freak.
