    "Unsupported Creators Update (CU) phone users, what to do now?"
    Keep using and supporting your existing Windows phones. They still work.
    Or
    Buy new Windows phones models that are supports by the Creators Update. There are 13 models getting the update. Buy one that works for you and continue to support Windows on phones.

    My 950XL works great and I'll continue to use it.

    Support what you like, or be part of the problem.

    Best Wishes.

    So, in the future sometime, if I want to roll back my 1520.3 from Creators Update to Anniversary Update, how would I do that?

    Recycle the Icon and picked up a 950 and 950XL. VZ doesn't really want the WM business which is fine. I can use these for a year or two and see how the wind blows on something better down the road. The costs are not high for these devices relative to what you get for hardware, so I can be a part of the solution and leave if they close up the Win 10 shop.

    Which is the better option for an unsupported phone - going back to AU now that Upgrade Advisor is working,or staying on Creators Update which I got through Insider Slow ring ( after getting CU I opted for Release Preview Ring) ?
    Creators Update is working nicely on my phone but it might not do so in future.
    Thanks !

    I would stay on CU which works nicely for you. One my friend started to have problems with few latest AU builds with his Lumia 930, and he actually wants to try his luck with CU.

    So, just stay with CU for now as you know that it works will for you, and if you face any issues you will be able to get back to AU again. That's what I would do.

    Of course, I do know that Upgrade Advisor didn't work for few days around this weekend, but I think that it wasn't something Microsoft that did intentionally. And I think that we all agree that the reason for not giving CU to these older Lumia's wasn't poor performance actually. ;)

    My phone started having a problem since yesterday evening.On unlocking I get a black screen ( a member was having this problem and mentioned it in this thread ) I have to do a soft reset every time to get rid of it. Otherwise the phone is so much better on CU than on AU.I will wait to see if I get any cumulative updates on CU or if the problem resolves.Otherwise I might have to roll back.
    The problem is that I will be travelling for a few days now . Glad that this is not my primary phone though I like it very much.

    I did a hard reset today ( had not done one after getting CU).
    So let me see if the problem recurs.

    I also decided to move on CU. AU ain't stable is it used to be few months ago, so it's not going to be worse on CU than it is on AU...

    I'm going to do a hard reset as well.

    I have noticed how it is slow in Settings when I go to Notifications & Actions. It freezes until it loads all apps. Not a pleasant experience when I want to set 5-10 notification sounds for some apps...

    I rolled back to AU.I had the black screen problem again twice.I could not dismiss/snooze the alarm in the morning and later could not receive a phone call.
    Since I have files saved on my laptop ,using the WDRT to roll back to 8.1 takes about 5 minutes.
    It is a pity because otherwise I liked how smooth my phone was on CU except the times when the black screen problem occurred.
    Also a hard reset on AU causes a non updating Mail and Calendar tile which does not happen with CU.
    Edit - the black screen problem occurs only during unlocking that too not always but it is occurring at crucial times.

    The issue with calendar tile after a hard reset on AU has been resolved recently. I even did a hard reset on my brothers phone which is on AU, and his live tile refreshes as it should. So no worry about that. ;)
