    Nope, they don't care, and I don't care about them anymore. It is one of those "I wish them the best in their future endeavors" kind of moments. Even if they shipped a surface phone and it was awesome and amazing, I wouldn't buy it, and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone not only have they abandoned the market but the have left the enthusiasts out in the cold to die. I am pretty sure the only people left on Windows Phone and want to be are the enthusiasts and Microsoft don't give a ****. From a brand perspective, Microsoft has done significant damage, and I think it is too late to fix it.

    So what is next? Android the Nokia Edge 2017 exactly, it is an amazing Lumia phone except it runs Android. Then it is just a matter of time before I switch my entire eco-system.

    At this point in time, it's nothing but vaporware. You can't make calls, text, surf the web, or take pics with vaporware. I understand it may be a concept, but that doesn't mean it will ever be real. I can't imagine Nokia jumping into the fire with a flagship phone after their failure with Lumia.

    I have a lumia 950 with OS build 10.0.14393.953 and my calendar has day, week, month and year views. Not sure which version you are running but I'd check

    Let's face it... there are not many of us left, comparably, to the global mobile community. We test, we send feedback, we deal with the highs and lows but we are faithful. I just got a replacement 1520 for my failed one... and I have an 830 and a 925... oh and a HTC 8x too.

    I'm tired of the endless upgrades to get back to the OS version I want... and I can't imagine it would be very difficult for Microsoft to implement two improvements:

    Running WDRT, provide a list of up to date base OS options common to that device so we can install that version directly.

    Being able to create a manual backup which is not susceptible to being overwritten. Allow us to name it from the device and control it's characteristics (read only, baseline, etc) in Onedrive.

    I know I'm not the only one who bemoans the these tasks when getting a new device or resetting because of an issue with a new build.

    I also realize Microsoft is extremely interested in the upgrade process to ensure customers get the most reliable experience but I guarantee you there is no value in OUR endless upgrading a vanilla device from 8.1 --> 8.1.1 --> TH1 --> RS1 and soon --> RS2.

    I have submitted these in the Feedback hub, lets hope they are still listening.
    Now we know why they may have not been listening, or at least listening to the point of changing stuff from some of this feedback.

    The only Lumia now supported from the WP8 upgrade path. going forward is the 640. Not many left now that they need to worry about.

    For me, I'll keep sticking around driving until the wheels fall off.

    What I've learned over the last few years is even if they don't abandon you today, they will abandon you sometime in the not-distant future. Like someone else said above, even if they released a Surface Phone today, I wouldn't buy it, it would just be a very expensive dead end. But there isn't going to be a Surface Phone - it's just trade-show hints and leaked concept art, to give the impression of a company with cool new projects under development.

    All phones (and electronics) are a dead-end. Every single one is abandoned at some point. In fact, this is true of every product manufactured, whether it's electronics, cars, appliances, etc.

    Then the goal would be no matter what you build, build something that will leave a legacy.

    But that doesn't mean we should accept Microsoft's conduct with no issue. There was a time where manufacturer involvement besides hardware repair for a phone was largely done once they started shipping, save for a patch or two. That isn't acceptable today and arguing that everyone will be abandoned sooner or later won't defend that.

    Maybe Microsoft is simply going to drop windows10 mobile OS because its a 32 bit system, and simply add mobile connectivity to win10- which is 64 bit.? But this can't happen till they complete the redstone3 update which allows for a complete GUI experience across any format screen or device.

    Using windows 10 mobile on both Lumia 1520 and 950xl. Quite happy with the upgrades and updates. Phone and software do get better.
    What software?

    I'd be happy if they would just stop breaking stuff that works with each update. I would swear it was a conspiracy to get me to buy the new model except there is no new model, so I guess it's just reckless incompetence.

    i think MS is working hard to survive in the mobile war.
    But the truth is there's no advantage to focus on the W10M only, as it's basically no different.
    To be success in the mobile war, Microsoft need something new, They have a lot of works to do.
    The mobile OS might not be important, as they need something that is so new that able to change the rule of the mobile market.
    let's keep supporting our beloved MS, i think they know what to do.

    I agree, Company always listen from consumers and delivering right time is true success. In the recent times we are hearing about Nokia 1 is going to runs on Android Oreo Go Operating System. Which is trim down version for 1GB RAM or below for faster and smoother performance.
    Also there is quite rumors around about Nokia Lumia series could be back!
    Nokia 1 could be first Android Oreo Go phone
