    I was having same issue (and hangs freeze and possibly other issues you listed.
    I found a post suggesting to (a) uninstall Facebook and Skype (b) restart the phone (c) re-install uninstalled apps
    It works for me on a Lumina 950 - stable now, not facing any of the listed issues.

    Note: what I am facing though is that I can't power off the phone the standard way, it will systematically restart.

    Regards, Pierre
    This is a very good hint. It worked for me. Thank you.

    Lumia 950XL Dual Sim

    After some respite from the bad things happening after the update, I now have lost all email account, Messages, Phone history, Feedback Hub won't let me connect unless I have wifi, even if I have full LTE coverage. Has anyone else been as frustrated, had these issues, or found good solutions? I find it ridiculous to have to wipe, reset, and reinstall with every major update that comes along.

    Very frustrating. There is no emoticon worthy of my feelings currently.

    After a few days with 15007 on my Lumia 730: quite stable actually, slightly faster. Some of the older bugs persist, still no "From:" name in email, and live tiles sometimes hang. But live tiles work better than before and Skype finally has notification in the tile again. Small improvements, nothing spectacular. I never had any auto reboots. But I don't use Facebook or other memory hogs.

    Those on fast ring shall update. And after the update, move back to slow ring so that you don't get a bad surprise with the next borked version.

    Other than that, a daily reboot is still recommended. I do it each morning before breakfast. But we do this since Windows 95.

    15007.1000 is garbage. Random reboots, lock up, email accounts disappearing. Its like MS QA took a vacation and left 100% of the testing up to insiders. Gonna have to reset to previous build. On a 950

    Wow. How did you get my phone? LOL. All same here though on a 950. $500 phone is virtually a boat anchor. Oh wait, another reboot. Imagine that.

    I know no one likes to do this but if your experiencing a lot of problems you may want to consider doing a hard reset. This is to be expected being in the Fast ring sometimes. In my case, my 950 XL DS US is functioning well with no random reboots or major issues.

    Lumia 650. After using WDRT and then going to 15007 with no restore my only problems after app updates were Edge crashes and Outlook mail and calendar apps not updating live tiles or syncing mail. A hard reset with no restore caused mail, calendar, Groove, OneDrive and Maps to disappear. All but Maps were able to be installed from the store and seem to be working the same as with 14965. Bluetooth connection speed and reliability seem to be improved with this build. Maps continues to show Working when trying to install, but never gets beyond that state. Other apps appeared to be stuck on Working before downloading but eventually installed. Apps, downloads and Maps are all setup to be stored on the device. All other files on SD card. This is how I've always rolled, formatting the SD card and removing the SIM during the hard reset procedure.

    Worked for me as well, was unusable, no idea how one app can do that, before uninstalling Facebook. after works like a charm, no hangs or freeze. Before it could lock at any time.

    Reinstalled Facebook from store after, still works

    Just above your post someone posted "...UN-install FaceBook and Skype... Restart; reinstall the apps if you want to..." This has helped a number of people here on this thread cure everthang from snakebite to broken leg. Good Luck, man

    Guys, the following solution treads on a whole new level of makes no sense but...Several in this thread mentioned uninstalling the Facebook app and Skype app. I uninstalled Facebook, Twitter, Skype and Linkedin....They all suck anyway. Did a reboot and problem solved. Problems included multiple reboots, locked screens, locked keyboard......ALL GONE. Give it a try. Worked for me. Lumia 950, 15007.1000

    Just UNBELIEVABLE ! You need some kind of Special Recognition for this. This is the biggest FIX I've seen in a long, long time

    Edge pages reloading often is an issue here, but not all pages. Windows Central is one of the pages affected. Maybe the staff can reach out to their contacts and make that clear. Yes, feedback has been posted and similar upvoted.
    I have had that issues on multiple phone since the very first Window 10 build!! It never goes away and it drives me nuts!

    After being mostly fine after the update on my L950, the last few days has seen battery life plummet much more quickly for some reason. Still occasional issues with photos, or manipulating photos, and occasionally it slows up a lot, especially noticeable if it happens whilst playing Bejewelled! Reboot usually clears it. So basically it's pretty good for me, but the sudden decrease in battery life is puzzling as it was initially fine after the update for a while, no new apps have been installed.

    All is well with my 950 DS I only use Twiiter and rarely at that, of the list of suspect apps, battery at 44% after 12 hours and almost 7 hours of audio streaming. Liking it so far. Sorry to hear others are struggling with it....been there.

    That's the idea. Consumers are developmental engineers nowadays. But Microsoft didn't create that business model, it's been around for a few decades. Detroit's Big Three were the ones who made it an art form.

    The program is called"Insider" for a reason. It's not meant to be used on primary devices and if you read the T&Cs you'd know this. These builds are for testing and evaluation. Sh!t is expected to happen, that's how potential problems are identified and rectified. In my field we call it "finding the solution to the pollution".

    No, this one was just a huge mistake. It's no way this far into this program that an update be this bad. I mean my Groove music disappeared. Along with myriad of other nonfunctioning aspects. This update should've never been put out. This is like the very beginning stages of WM10 a couple years ago.

    Does anyone over at MS even test the builds they are sending to the people !? Or they let the people "have all the fun" ?
    I received the latest build almost 2 days ago and everything is a mess...
    1. Reboots over and over again
    2. Contacts not showing
    3. SMS doesn't work at all. I can't receive and can't send. After i send the SMS magically disappears
    4. Apps don't work at all OR get borked.
    5. They said they "implemented" a new thing for apps and you can reset them if they don't work. Ok.... when i try to reset any app it says "Try again later".. really!? WTF !!!!?
    6. Store is opening and closing over and over again and i didn't even touched it.
    7. I can see I have notifications but when I scroll the bar down to see from whom/what/when it says "No notifications" or the device gets rebooted
    I am using Lumia 930
    Same issues here. Constatnt reboot, cant search for people in phone or people app, just hangs. Sometimes cant unlock phone, just hangs.
    Cant send texts.
    Cant save contacts.
    Notification drawer really slow, then cant access the apps from notification drawer.
    Cant receive calls at times, just hangs and rings continuously.
    Phone may overheat then drain batterythe by 25% in minutes.
    Unable to turn on/off quiet ours, even from notebook.
    Internet onnectivity is crap as well.

    This is the worst fast ring update ive experienced.
    Phone isdead a 950xl dual simsim, build 15007.1000.

    More issues starting to crop up as time goes by with this build, I was unable to unlock the phone earlier, instead the screen stayed off, but the iris scanner stayed on for ages, then after about a minute, it rebooted itself. This is the first time I've had a spontaneous reboot for months and months. After initially being ok, the cracks are definitely starting to appear. I don't mind being an insider and I expect some issues, but this degradation in performance that gets worse as time goes by seems to be a bit of a recurring theme with most builds, the last one was actually pretty good (not the one that was released by mistake last week, but the one before that). One step forward, two steps back... L950

    The thing that gets me is that most of the big problems were not in the known issues. I'd appreciate if there was an additional 'Rare issues' section in the build announcement. Like "On some devices several built-in apps may become unusable. Some devices may start rebooting every few minutes." Then we know we're dealing with a fast ring release, and believe me, if they had added those disclaimers I'd have stayed away. I get the sense that they only report "known issues" if they happen on all devices.
