    Hi guys. I just got a 640 and decided to try out the insider preview since I've read the new 10586 is quite smooth and capable as a daily driver. I am now on 10166 which is perhaps ancient and trying to update from that. Windows Insider says the update is available but when I go to Phone Update it just says the phone's up to date. What should I do now? Do I have to do a hard reset?

    Thanks for the reply! How do I do that? Please don't mind my noobie questions. Have had a 521 for over a year but never dug deeper into the system and stuff.

    Are you on fast ring or slow ring? Maybe fire up Windows Insider and click on Fast Ring again...
