    I had not done a hard reset since joining Insider Previews since previously all had worked ok. With this build, my Bluetooth was wonky at best. Groove would quit playing. I couldn't pair my car's radio. The connection to my Fitbit Charge 2 was hit and miss, too.

    I took the leap and did a hard reset.

    My Start menu came back and programs have all redownloaded and installed.

    Bluetooth works as it should, now. Fitbit isn't fully tested, but it's in beta anyway and issues are to be expected.

    is this build stable to install at my 640DS phone? I am in release ring (latest build) now!
    How is battery life?
    And it worths to install it only for the smoothness that it provides?
    Thanks!

    cant tell a difference on 830, so we can assume a 640 wont benefit either, 930 seems way faster though

    wait for more feedback from 640 owners if you want to try 10563 before its official

    This has been a good build for me on 950 and on 950 XL. Battery is so so, Continuum can get weird on 950, but the XL seems to do better.

    I have not found anything that does not work....yea!

    I usually encounter glitches where the audio won't play upon getting in the vehicle, if I play it from the phone it works, but not the vehicles display. So far it is flawless :)

    This is the first Windows Phone/Windows Mobile build SINCE MY OLD LUMIA 1020 that actually works flawlessly with my car's stereo!

    I had three different VW models since the Lumia 1020 (and two different phones, namely a 930 and a now a 950), all with the same stereo model (VW's RCD 510). All this time I always had the problem of getting the phone connected but no info whatsoever on the HU's display. With that, I also had no ability to control the media player through the car's controls.

    The solution was either to restart the phone or to turn the ignition off, remove the key and start the engine again.

    I've been on 15063 for a week now and, for THE FIRST TIME IN 4 YEARS ON WINDOWS PHONE, I have a perfectly fine bluetooth connection between my phone and my car.

    I thought I would not live to see that!

    I guess this is approaching a very good and stable state for WM10 and it feels like a perfect time for MS to place a last bet on mobile.

    Automatic app updates are definitely broken on this build. It is on my 930 anyway. I've just completed a reset to see if that solves it but it still doesn't find any updates. Anyone else seeing this?

    Don't ever let it update LOL!

    Seriously, I have always had control issues, the phone would always connect, but I usually have a Bluetooth headset connected, before entering my vehicle, I turn off the headset. When I get in the vehicle, I expect to be able to continue listening to the audio I was listening to through my headset. A lot of times I must use the phone to select "play" - now the vehicle controls work......

    1. Try to restart both, phone and computer. It might fix it.

    2. If not, check your "Device Management" and try to update a driver (look an enclosed pic).

    3. Install WDRT for your computer (it will reinstall drivers for your computer).

    Does anyone else have an issue with "Advanced Info" app not updating in the Store? I get error code 0x80073CF9. All other apps update just fine. I just did a Hard Reset and prefer not to do that again to fix this issue.

    It's a shame that this is the ONLY thing not quite right about this build.

    This is been the best release so far on my 640. The Facebook app still sucks and Edge constantly reloads some pages, but other than that most everything else has been pretty smooth.

    I can't really speak to the battery life because I keep mine plugged in anytime I can. But I haven't noticed any problem.

    Jaripi, Thank you for your reply.

    So,
    > Did a restart (both PC & Phone)
    > Check Device Manager, had an error message regarding the driver, tried to update the driver..no joy.
    > Opened WDRT (already installed on Computer), and received an Error message.
    > Uninstalled WDRT form computer, then Re-Installed. This time it recognized my 950XL see below:

    Questions:
    > should I 'Reinstall software' from the WDRT page?
    > will this put me back to build 10586?
    > what data will I loose?

    Also, checked 'Device Management' again, and received the following:

    phone-driver-update-picture.jpg

    Follow-up Questions:

    So,
    > Best to do a HARD Re-start?
    > Or, best to use WDRT, and 'Reinstall Software'?
    > please keep in mind, I don't want to loose any phone data:)

    Thanks again!

    If you use a back up file from a recent fast build you will get your screen tiles back 90% of the times, at least in my 950.
    You get all the apps (I have 170 aps) even with folders and customized tiles.
    If you synchr settings, then passwords for sites and ie favorites are restored properly
    Apps that participate in back up restore most if not all settings
    You don't get:
    Accounts need to be set again, except main Microsoft account.
    NFC settings are by default on
    After a back up restore you need just a quarter of an hour to be set
    nikosxri,

    Would you be so kind as to chime in on my Post #139 , and enlighten me as to what precautions you did to minimize your work load, on the other end.

    Most interested in saving:

    Thank you for any heads up you can provide...:)

    For your question... no precautions at all.
    My lumia 950 can hold 170 apps and more with minimal or NO difference in speed or fluency of the device.
    And this is an advantage of win 10!!
    My screen layout has those 170 apps in tiles and tiles subfolders with no resuming at all!!
    I dont know which phone you have but if it has same or better spec dont worry at all...

    mtf1380 - try to restart the both devices once again.

    I think that a problem is with your Computer, so I am not sure can you fix it with hard reset of your phone. How about updating your computer to the latest insider build 15063 ? (it is great one, I am using it)

    Jaripi, I must be cautious with my Desktop, I absolutely, positively, need as little interference on it as possible:) I do have 15063 on my Surface Pro 3, and Surface Book. I did try the phone on the Surface book and all was well, so maybe the desktop will cooperate soon. Thanks!!!!! again for your help:) - Cheers

    One option is system restore of your desktop computer, if you can remember when it was working before. Then you chose a restore point before that day. It is still there, you can find system restore from control panel - System - System Protection ...

    Other option is to try to uninstall device (your phone) from your desktop computer (through Device Manager). There should be an option to remove drivers on the same time (tick a box). Then I suggest restart and after restart, you will use your phone again with your desktop computer and your computer will find it again and will install drivers for it again.
