    For the Lumia 640 and 635, I can't scroll all the way down in the one-handed reachability mode. I can't scroll to the last few rows of tiles, and I can't scroll pass the "W" apps in the apps list. Ah, another fine update by Microsoft.
    Seems normal because you are at the end of the scroll list. To click something, get out of one hand mode. If you keep scrolling like you want you would end up with just the normal screen with the top half blackened out now that would be stupid.

    What they could do is if you keep scrolling down you scroll out of one handed mode, but then people will complain they scroll out of it unintentionally, theres always something.

    I don't think it is. It would mean that I could just remain in ONE mode instead of needing to jump back and forth between the two modes. Needing to fumble back and forth constantly, which is something I find myself doing a lot in Outlook Calendar and Mail, is just dumb. It's cumbersome. You used to be able to scroll all the way to the bottom in one-handed mode before, and that eliminated the need to go back and forth, and now for some reason (hopefully a bug and not intentional), it changed.

    Does anybody have a problem with store? "something happened on our end. Waiting a bit may help. Try again later" I was hoping this update will solve this but still nothing! It's annoying
    Yup. I did a restart of my 950 and that seems to have fixed it.

    Lumia 950. Issues with Bluetooth, WiFi and Gadgets after update. The biggest problem is with Gadgets. It starts up but that's it. Making it completely useless. So, decided to remove it and install it again. Surprise, that option is no longer available: it can't be removed ๐Ÿ˜ถ WiFi sometimes fails to auto connect to another network. Bluetooth symbol is missing when a devise is connected. Connection now and then is lost for a second or so and switching it on or off via the action center sometimes freezes my 950 for a minute or 2, 3. And just recently, in Edge, using 'share' (web page) via mail caused a problem (red outlook screen instead of a blue one and it just kept loading) which was fixed with a soft reset. Geez Louise, they really messed up this time ๐Ÿ˜

    no lags or freeze issues on my 730, but a long time persistent bug has resurfaced again and yes its just what you must be thinking the calendar tile bug . The calendar tile will either stop showing the date and day or if it does the date and day wont auto change after 24hours. the only solution currently is to reboot the device and hoping Microsoft drops a new update soon because it has been a while since the last update for mail and calendar.

    Also worth noticing is that, we haven't seen stock MSN app updates after the current CU which is weird because every CU has been followed by MSN and OFFICE app updates but none this time .

    I had this mail and calendar tile updating bug since AU. CU or app update did not help.Only the WDRT helped though it was an extremely tedious process.
    I got some MSN app updates -wallet,store,outlook mail & calendar,OneNote,photos,feedback hub yesterday and today (India).
    If you decide to go through the WDRT then do not hard reset your phone after upgrading to AU - it may bring back the mail & Calendar tile (non)updating bug again.
    My phone is working smoothly except that I was getting the error code which I was getting on my laptop too after my old outlook account got migrated by MS to the new MS account ( many others are also getting the same error code syncing contacts and mail and MS community page is full of complaints) .I had to remove my outlook account and add it back to remove the problem.

    Appraisin is showing me those updates in addition to Truecaller (which I received too today).
    Sometimes I get updates later than when it shows up on AppRaisin.

    My unlocked Lumia 950 XL is constantly crashing everyday at least 4-5 randomly. Typically happens during the lock screen when I try to read notifications from the Action Center or unlocking my phone. The OS just crashes and stays black until I do a Soft Reset with the Power and Volume button. This will be the first time I will do a hard reset and hopefully it fixes it. I've been constantly updating with Production releases without issues since January. I guess continuous in-place updates are not that good with MS :P.

    Return it for store credit, and buy the better flagship 640XL. And pocket the $400 difference. I did, and the 640XL simply blows away the creaky back, 5 hour battery, overheating, constant crashing 950XL.

    Currently doing a full backup of all the files on my phone to my PC before I proceed with the reset. I do not really want to rely (or trust) on the phone backup or using OneDrive (space limitation). I will perform the reset soon, sadly will have to spend a lot of time re-configuring my settings/applications.

    On another note, it also blacks out sometimes when I use an application like 6tag or Baconit after I press the back button a few times to back out of my page. It won't respond to anything other than a soft reset. The only difference between this and the unlock issue I stated earlier was that the screen doesn't flash yellow/orange/green like a crash. It just blacks out and becomes unresponsive.

    Currently restoring my old settings and configurations. Hoping for the best. If I don't respond back here with any complaints, it means it is fixed. It appears others are having my issues too which is reported under Bugs and Defects thread for Lumia 950 XL.

    Not enjoying this build. Within the past three hours I had

    - audio system fail (zero audio out while connected to bluetooth, and Groove complaining of an audio error)
    - no GPS, only a gray dot on the map of a prior location
    - trying to edit a Cortana reminder, space for the keyboard appeared, but that area remained blank. Could not bring up the KB until finalizing the reminder (so had to edit the created reminder afterward)

    Edit: and just now, taking some pictures of a crazy sky from the window of this plane, the camera just froze, then crashed, and never revived until a reboot. Picture opportunity lost. :( Another build that "goes bad" after a few days. So frustrating. The Pixel announcement cannot come soon enough. Basically on Oct 4 I order either a Google Pixel if it's any good, or an iPhone 6S 128GB for $650.

    I am currently having an issue. SMS no alert sound and the phone does not light up when the phone is idle to show the notification. Same thing with Mail. I think notification is not working for all.

    But if I turn on the phone, I see the notifications in the lock screen.

    I did soft reset, and turn off and on the phone. No luck.

    UPDATE:
    I turned on Show notification on lock screen and problem solved. I must have unknowingly turned it off before.

    Ok to enable sms sounds when phone is locked you must show notifications on lock screen show sounds and notifications when phone is locked to keep them private on home screen say no to show banners and keep notifications private on home screen off (don't know why but this works) ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Running the latest OS build (10.0.14393.189) for a few weeks now. However since the latest update, battery life has been abysmal. Normally I would a get full 24-hours worth of battery life on my Nokia Lumia 730 Dual Sim without charging the phone once. Now I'm lucky if it would last 6-8 hours. At first I thought the battery drain was due to apps running in background which didn't happen before, so I assumed this must been part of the new update. But I later tested leaving the phone alone running nothing on a full charge to measure battery drain. Surprised to find 8 hours later the phone had turned off due to low battery. Usage indicates the biggest was the "Lock Screen" which is bizzare. Battery saver mode doesn't seem to make much of a difference. Disabling all toggles (WiFi, Bluetooth, Cellular Data, Location) and lowering brightness had zero effect. I've tried replacing the battery but the result was the same, so it definitely is a software defect. Would appreciate some actual assistance instead of generic cookie-cutter advice "like did you try restarting your phone?"

    Is Flip to Silence permanently gone? I've hunted high and low (Unlocked 950 Dual Sim) and still cannot find an option to enable Flip to Silence. Does anyone else have Flip to Silence available on this build with an unlocked 950 Dual Sim?

    A few weeks ago I reset my Lumia 635 running the Anniversary Update. After re-initailising, I noticed that the Settings->Extras->Touch settings entry was not included as a factory-default component. So I went to the app store and looked up "Gestures & Touch". But it was marked as unavailable. Something about it being incompatible with my device.

    So today I took the drastic measure of using Windows Device Recovery Tool to revert back to the original OS (in my case, that was Windows Phone 8.1). Sure enough, the Touch settings category was back.

    Then I re-upgraded to Windows 10 Mobile RTM, and the app store automatically updated me to the most recent version of "Gestures & Touch". From there I upgraded to build 14393.189, and Settings->Extras->Touch survived the upgrade. Now, flip to silence is available again.

    I'm not sure how this would go for a device that shipped with Windows 10 Mobile instead of Windows Phone 8.
