    General changes, improvements, and fixes for Mobile

    1. We fixed an issue where VPN profile appeared to be always ON.
    2. We fixed a notification issue between the Bluetooth Support Service and device background services for fitness bands.
    3. We fixed issues with Caller ID matching in Japan & Denmark.


    This build and version is the latest Redstone 3 (?) build in testing for Mobile Insiders on the Fast Ring.

    Issues? Bugs? Solutions? For all things build 15230, discuss it here.

    [NOTE]Tip: Check out this thread before posting

    Is your device behaving oddly, is something just not right? This is the place for discussion of software and hardware issues!
    [TIP]Here is some useful information you may find yourself needing.
    Some issues with responsiveness and app delays can be resolved by either restarting your phone or performing a Soft Reset.

    If things get a bit more serious, you may opt to perform a hard reset or software reset.

    Lastly, if things really get serious, you may need the Windows Device Recovery Tool to recover your phone back to working order - head over to the Microsoft FAQ Page for more information.

    Make sure you check the official Windows 10 Mobile Support Page as well for some of the most common tips and trouble shooting guides.[/TIP]
    [INFO]Restarting your phone involves turning it off and then turning it on again. Turn off your phone by pressing the power button until you are prompted to "Slide down to power off". Turn your phone on again by pressing the power button until it vibrates.

    A soft reset is similar to pressing the reset button in PCs and has the same effect as pulling out the battery of your phone and then putting it back in. For phones with non-removable batteries, press the volume down and power button together until your phone restarts. Be aware that when using Windows 10, the voume down and power button combination will also launch Windows Feedback. Just continue to hold down the buttons for a full 10 seconds in order to trigger the soft reset. For phones with removable batteries, you can either opt for the button combination or remove the battery and then return it.

    A hard reset or a software reset will reformat your phone by removing all the user information leaving only the bare OS and firmware currently installed in your phone. It does erase data so you should always keep a good backup of your phone just in case you have to resort to this option.

    The software reset can be done by going to your phone Settings > System > About > tap on "Reset your phone." You will be prompted once before doing this just to be sure. Be sure, also, to have everything backed up since there would be no way to recover all of your files.

    The hard reset accomplishes the same thing as the software reset, but can be accomplished when the phone is non-responsive and you are unable to enter into settings. To perform the Hard Reset, "Power off the phone > hold Volume Down > press Power > keep holding Volume Down until you see the exclamation (!) screen, then immediately release the Volume Down. Now tap Volume Up / Volume Down / Power / Volume Down. You should see the spinning gears and your phone will reflash the last OS version held in recovery.

    The Windows Device Recovery Tool is the final option, for example for "bricked" phones that would no longer turn on, be charged, etc. This can be used to either roll back to a previous OS version or force an update to a more current OS version[/INFO]
    Remember, when reporting bugs be descriptive! The more information you give, the better the chance someone will be able to help you.

    What OS version? Any special conditions that should be noted? What were you doing? What is the result? Any error codes or messages given? What have you tried for solutions? What variant of the phone are you using? Single SIM or Dual SIM?

    Please describe as much as possible about the bug so others may try and replicate the bug and don't make suggestions for solutions that you have already tried which have failed.
    [INFO]When reporting bugs/issues, please also use the Windows Feedback app to report issues directly to Microsoft. Microsoft don't actively read forums looking for people reporting issues when they have a data collection system built right into the operating system. They use WF to analyse numbers and prioritise fixes (issues with more reports, get sorted quicker).

    "You can use the Windows Feedback app to tell us which features you love about your Lumia with Windows 10, or when something could be better.
    1.To launch the app, swipe over to the App list, and then select Windows Feedback.
    2.See if someone else has given similar feedback by entering the topic, such as Microsoft OneDrive.
    3.If you find similar feedback, tap the Upvote or tap on the feedback to open it, write the problem details to Add details-field and tap Send.
    4.To narrow your search to a specific topic, you can filter the results by picking the category that matches your feedback the closest. For example, for feedback about the Microsoft OneDrive, select Apps and Games > OneDrive.
    5.If you don’t find any similar feedback, tap + to add new feedback. Select the correct category and subcategory from the dropdown-list.
    6.Enter your feedback (the more details the better!), add a screenshot if you can, and tap Send.
    [/INFO]

    So far, so same on my 1520. But, that isn't necessarily a bad thing. It seems to be running well so far.

    Did a cycle "on/off" to test the battery drop, and only lost 1% (48% -> 47%), so that's an improvement...so it would appear:)

    So far, I haven't had the Bluetooth cut out when I try to use both my headphones and my MS Band.

    If they fixed that problem, I am a happy camper!

    Hope it continues:)

    People keep complaining at the lack of new features on W10M, but I am loving these bug fixes! If they are preparing the leave us behind, at least they are making sure we will be all set with a fully functioning phone when they do!

    "Totally" agree! Besides, I am playing with Fast Ring on my SP3, so I have plenty to keep me entertained:)

    mtf1380, I agree, the bug fixes are most welcome. On the subject of Microsoft calling "abandon ship" on WM10, is that because they are going to roll out the universal windows platform to cover all devices? I suppose, if that is the case, they will have new hardware requirements that current phones don't meet (sigh).

    @daveb673, at this point in the game it's all conjecture (unless, of course, you have seat at the design/strategy table).

    My guess (and my 'guess' only) is MS has separated W10M from RS3 branch to either:

    Quarantine W10M so they can make an unimpeded effort to try and make it compatible on as many devices as possible, in an effort to reunite/merge it back to being a parallel branch of RS3, and above (albeit, at a disadvantage, because hardware limitations).

    Or (and this is where my money is):

    They have realized that there is no way a current devices' hardware is going to be able to keep up with MS's direction for mobile's UI and capabilities AND, they are putting the bulk of their effort forward, toward the future.(comparable analogy might be: prop vs jet, you can continue to fly, and maintain the prop, but you'll NEVER be able to make it a good jet - so you may as well just go ahead and design a 'JET'). They appear to be continuing maintain W10M feature 2, which is the right thing to do, and that action should provide the use of the current phone for as long as someone will 'want' to use it:)

    We "should" see some MS hardware in the next 6-12 months (probably different component configurations of a high-end, well engineered, show piece); as well as support form a number of OEM's to fill-in the total, price and features, gamut - the number of OEM's that will support MS's new direction is most likely going to be determined by the meeting that are, and have been, going on with the potential partners and, MS's ability to convince them of the likelihood for success, of the new direction:)

    again...just my guess:)

    Cell data on (excellent signal), WiFi on and connected, BT on but not connected, no Email syncing in the background, NFC off.

    I don't know yet if this is a one off fluke, but my standby drain was 0.5%/hour last night after upgrading to 15230 and performing a factory reset. I took it off the charger fully charged and found it at 96% the next morning, 8 hours later. If this actually continues, it is is better than I have ever seen on any Windows phone and on a par with Android 7.x on my Nexus 5X.

    Hmmm. I've had the 950XL DS out of service the past week+ but I did turn it on yesterday (no sim) to catch the update and update apps and immediately powered it down again. Sounds like it might be worth putting it back in service as the daily driver for awhile to see whether this improved battery life is true for me as well.

    Interestingly, I have found battery life on my Nexus 6P to not be so good lately. I haven't really investigated it thoroughly but it's probably app-related. I run way more apps on the 6P than the 950XL. I also gave my wife a BlackBerry KEYone for her birthday (she remains a BB fan) and her experience with battery life has also not been good (surprising, as that phone was reputed to have excellent battery life).

    I hasten to add that one of my main complaints about Windows (all the way back to Windows 8) has been rather unpredictable battery life so my initial good experience may be short lived. Time literally will tell ;)

    The cats out of the bag. Cortana has been in frequent contact with me for answers to questions by netizens, bots and search engines... It's too overwhelming... so I pointed her towards THHGTTG instead..
