    Windows 10 Mobile Insiders program is running fine. I can opt-out and rejoin without any issue.

    (however, on both my 1020 and 1520 it doesn't give me any new non production builds and it didn't get me the FCU/1709 update. I cannot even get my 1020 from 8.1 to 10 anymore)
    You can try out this method on the link below

    AIDA64 says I have 0% wear on my 950 and 5% wear on my 4 year old 1020.
    I wonder how those figures are determined. That amount of degradation seems to be VERY low considering the age of those batteries.

    I've had 3 or 4 random restarts over the last two days (950XL, DS, USA).
    I get these too on my 950XL. Unrelated question, but can we actually expect anymore Insider builds now or is this the best we get?

    I think the commitment from MS is Bug Fixes & Security Patches... no new major features are to be expected.

    I think this is exactly what people have to expect. Anything beyond is frosting on the cake.

    There were 2 versions of the 635 on with 512MB and one with 1GB.

    Re alarm sounds use ringtone maker to create the alarms.

    I have the Nokia,alarm mp3 that was used for the 1020 when it came out.

    I have been on 15254.1 for a couple weeks on my 950XL didn't realize it, I was using my 950 on 15254.1 and Cortana and Continuum were behaving badly so I switched to my XL thinking it was on production.

    It seems to be fine. I had an issue with iHeart radio not resuming audio to my BT headset and a couple other odd audio resume issues, so I did a soft reboot and it is fine.....the few apps I use work great. Battery lasts all day.

    I will do a hard reset on the 950 and re try it, I prefer the smaller device if it will work correctly.

    Has anyone done a restore from a different phone? My XL is working good, could I restore the 950 from the 950 XL restore option on initial set-up?

    No new features is not a deal breaker for me. But I hope we get future fast ring updates to fix things like battery life and the frustrating random resets. Surely fixing those would not be classed as new features?

    Some of the random resets probably are related to bad battery contacts.
    Try to pull the pins closer for a better steady contact...

    I have even considered getting a new battery. It is two years old after all. It usually happens when the phone is locked and goes idle, and I am using it to listen to music via Groove, then I power the screen on and unlock it (and then it sometimes just resets).

    Brandon LeBlanc assured everyone that there will be future Insider builds for W10M. And there's already a 15400 build in the pipeline (source). If feature are not the focus then surely battery life and stability is the focus

    Thanks @milkyway. I heard about the 15400 build but then a writer on this site (Zac Bowden?) said in a Tweet that it was not for mobile? So I am not sure what to believe really. Any improvements on battery life and overall stability would be welcome though.

    I'm 100% sure that it is for mobile. It's from the feature2 branch so why shouldn't it be? Feature2 is only for W10M

    Here is what I am referring to. Right at the bottom you can see what Zac says. You are right though, it wouldn't make sense to not come to phones if it is the correct pathway.

    Thanks for posting this. I'm confused. Maybe what he meant was that there's already a newer build (e.g. 15401) and we will get this one instead?!

    I think Zac meant "Continuum 2.0 windowed mode" (referenced in the preceding reply) was not coming to Windows phones, not the build itself.

    That does make sense. Thanks @Kerry2112.

    Now I am looking forward to whenever we get this new build.

    Since Windows Mobile is officially dead, I am trying to get used to W10 the way it is. I find it is OK these days with one glaring exception.... has anyone else had bluetooth disconnect some minutes after the phone screen turns off? Trouble is that when it disconnects (my earpiece says "phone one disconnected") the BT icon still shows and all audio is still routed to the now disconnected bluetooth connection. So no ring tones or notification sounds. The only way to restore normal operation is to reboot.

    If I am the only one, I'll see if I can figure out why I am so "special". If I am not the only one, I guess all we can do is wait. And wait..... And yes, I have submitted feedback. No response from MS.

    FWIW, I'm using a L950 on ATT with a Plantronics E500 earpiece. The E500 doesn't do this on Android or my Windows 10 laptop, and I'm pretty sure that this only started somewhere several builds ago but I can't say for sure.

    It's buggy on lumia 640. I cannot add secondary MS accounts. They get added as "Accounts used by other apps" which makes them unmanageable and unable to change email sync settings.

    Strange. Buildfeed now lists 15254.10 as the latest feature2 build. Maybe 15400 isn't for phones after all?

    Maybe my original assumption was right? The longer we wait, the newer the build so chances are it has more fixes too.

    Well, 15400 was listed as a feature2 update (it's still there on Buildfeed if you look at the list of all the past builds). What happened to it is anybody's guess. Was definitely for phones though:
