Okay so I could not control myself any more and upgraded my 640xl to the latest 10536 Windows 10 build and I am simply loving it. Windows 10 is leagues ahead of 8.1. Battery backup is almost the same, slightly lower though, understandably so, since windows 10 brings with it, so many additional features which use up more resources on the device.

Upgrade Process:I made a mistake at the start by upgrading to windows 10 via the Slow channel, which did not give me the latest 10536 build which considered to be the closest one to final build. I then tried switching to fast to get the latest build and an entire day got wasted. I had to restore the phone back to 8.1 and then upgrade to 10536 build via the fast channel. This build is again a huge huge improvement over the latest build on the Slow channel.

Being in tune with TBHP, the first difference between the windows 10 builds was that when the device was connected via bluetooth to the car HU, the calls would be picked up only if I was in Bluetooth mode, however, in 10536 this has been resolved. Call is picked when in any mode, even when the HU is switched off. A bug that still exists is that I cannot skip songs from the HU.

PS: Using Ford OE HU.

The device needs to have a minimum of 4gb internal space along with 1 gb ram to qualify for the final build, is what I am hearing from the forums.

Tried it. No go, the card reader on multiple laptops didn't even detect the card.

Ordered a Strontium Nitro 466X UHS-1 32GB microSD off Amazon. Hoping it works well. Already regretting buying a phone with limited internal storage.

Guys, please help!!

I did a hard reset of my 925 just to find out(or not find out) that Here Drive and Maps were missing! I didnt find them in the store either. Why is this? Is it because I have set my region and language as English(US)? I wanted to give my phone a long awaited clean up and reset it today. Now I feel like committing the biggest blunder if I cant get it back.

What is the reason for this?

I'm guessing that your phone is on W8/8.1. Go to the store on the phone and there is an option to see your purchase history. This history will show every app that was installed on your phone. You should be able to get the apps from there.

Moved to the Windows 10 preview and I am sold. Does justice to the phone with great improvement in the UI. I was thinking of going Android but ditched plans now. I don't test things to the limits but so far I am liking a lot.

Question Re: How to transfer data to a PC?

Sister's Lumia 1320(Windows 8.1) has consumed all it's storage(8GB ROM + 8GB card). I am finding it tough to transfer data into a computer.

Are there any easy transfer methods for these windows phones? Also, please suggest some good apps to clean up the phone.

How much bigger card can this model accept? I will be getting her a bigger card.

Please advise.

Yes even I am surprised why it is not present in the market place now.
I reset my wife's phone and had open the website to install the apps.

There is no way to cancel the update. My suggestion is to enroll to the fast ring. Build 10572 is extremely smooth, fast and stable.

Thumbs up Re: The Windows Phone Thread

Since build 10581 I was contemplating to install the insider preview in my L1520. But was little sceptical about the stability and bugs.

But yesterday I had upgraded successfully and quite easily to Windows 10 Mobile Build 10586.11. It is very fast and smooth compared to Windowsphone 8.1.

Here Drive and Here Maps are not working. And Device Hub is crashing too. Rest everything is working excellently.

I am looking for an alternative (free) music player for my wife's Nokia Lumia 730.
The Xbox music player is too frustrating and frequently crashes.

What can you recommend?

So I bought the BLU Win HD LTE phone for 6K from snapdeal, comes with screen guard and rubber "jacket". Pretty good deal for the specs offered.
However, the touch is not as sensitive as the Lumias :(
And there are no Lumia apps available (which doesn't matter much for me)

Also I did realize that Here maps and drive are not available and the reason is some "goof-up" by Here's latest update that made the app unstable, thus has been pulled out.
