    Regarding SD card issues, it appears that Windows phone/mobile reports that the SD card cannot be repaired after the file system check even when there was no error in the first place (just the dirty bit set). In that case it appears that Windows phone/mobile does not reset the dirty bit so it stays set forever. You can see that the dirty bit is set by putting the SD card in computer and typing "fsutil dirty query X:" in a command prompt (where X is the letter for the drive corresponding to the SD card). If the bit is set "chkdsk X: /f" (where X is still the letter for the drive corresponding to the SD card) will remove it.

    Regarding 318 update after 107, I just used the Upgrade Advisor once (which seems to set an opt-in flag somewhere). Then I got 107 from phone update. And shortly after installing 107 the phone automatically found the update to 318 and offered to install it.

    Regarding keeping text messages, I got mine back (at least the recent ones/last 30 days). Note that I made an explicit backup (from the Settings app on the phone) prior to starting the upgrade (step 0 if you want) and picked to restore that backup after the hard reset.

    EDIT: backing up again between steps 2 and 3 might help getting more than the last 30 days back. I am not sure why the cutoff appears to be 30 days in my case (just backing up at step 0).

    I had also made an 8.1 backup on my 920 before starting my 640 on 10, but I did not restore from backup (I didn't think you were supposed to do that after a hard reset). Any other issues restoring from backup?

    I am currently testing upgrading my 920 to 10, just to see if it syncs the texts to my 640 with 10. Then I could reset the 920 to 8.1, restore my wife's backup, get all her texts, upgrade the 920 to 10, then upgrade her 640 to 10, hard reset without restore, and still get texts. RIght? Yay convoluted things!

    Well it's a shame for those of us who unbranded their AT&T phone given we can't go back to the original ROM! Ha ha ha!

    Regarding WhatsApp... after the hard reset I had to reinstall the app (since existing apps on the SD card have to be deleted). Then I launched WhatsApp, entered my phone number, got a new confirmation code. Then after giving the confirmation code WhatsApp told me it found a backup and asked me if I wanted to restore it. Then it restored everything... I am unclear if the backup it referred to is the Windows phone backup on OneDrive or on some WhatsApp server... but basically it just worked.

    To keep all text messages, make sure the option to back up covers all, not just 30 days. I have messages from my L520 days on 8.0 that successfully showed up on the L640 after the official W10M update.

    Odd.....I've always had it back up all messages, and the only ones on my 640 W10M were from my two weeks of my 920 on W10M.

    Quick question, to get the 318 update after 107, do you use phone update or upgrade advisor again? Thanks

    After Upgrade Advisor brings you to W10M Official, it is no longer useful and can be uninstalled. WaaS (Windows as a Service) will continue to update your device through the normal OTA method.

    Seriously. I forgot that I had cross-flashed to CricKet and was stuck with whatever firmware they'll never bother updating. I really wish firmware was decoupled from the base OS ROM so we could always have up-to-date firmware (where applicable).

    Does this keep text messages from 8.1? My wife is concerned about losing text history. I played with 10 on my 920 back in the day (reverted to 8.1 after two weeks), but then started my 640 I bought last month on 10 Release Preview, no restore. When it came up, it grabbed my text messages from when my 920 was on 10, but that was it.

    Based on that, should there be a step in between 2 and 3 about doing a backup, that way texts get synced to the cloud? Then even after the OOBE, it should restore, right?
    I never restore from backups yet my messages always restore. I guess message backup is separate than device backup.

    Good to know. Looks like my 920 (just updated to 10 for this purpose) is starting to pull in my 640's messages. Now I just hope it goes the other way too....

    True enough.

    On my 640 I did a reset after upgrade and no restore so I had to set everything up manually. On my 1520 I reset, but took a restore. My 640 has been running pretty smooth, my 1520 is waiting for a reset and no restore as I have an otherwise insoluble problem of the Phone App believing it is pinned to Start, but in fact being completely inaccessible there. I have to enter Phone from the All Apps list.

    Funny thing is, the 1520 started with no issues and then developed the "missing Phone tile" after the Patch Tuesday update to 10586.242 and it persisted after the 10586.318 push. My 640 has been on Release Ring since before the 1520 got official and has taken more updates without having similar problems.

    So I guess the lesson is Upgrade > Reset > NO Restore.
    Also seeing the problem that the installation of additional keyboards fails when upgrading from 8.1.

    Anyone else lose the option to turn off vibrations and auto hide the windows softbar at the bottom? Any way to recover it without another hard reset (have done so twice now) because the vibrations are annoying to me.

    I remember seeing a post somewhere about this issue but can't seem to locate it. I believe it was options under "touch" but I can't find it anywhere under any of the settings sub directories.

    I don't see the autohide but in .318 (the update after the original one), the vibration one is in Settings->Extras->Touch.

    So I did the reset and my contacts re-appeared during the reset. No backup required.

    Also, even though I had already updated to .318, the desktop looked different after the reset. I think I like it better now.

    That is the problem... Touch is not an option. Wondering if anyone knows how to get it back without a hard reset.

    So, if a person already had .318 from running on the Insiders program will the updates continue to flow from Microsoft?

    Based off MS, all W10M updates will be Microsoft controlled (at least on MS Lumia devices). Carriers are out of the loop. Not sure if this will apply to other manufacturers though.
