Are you still waiting on the update for WP 10 Mobile?

I can overlook the issue with not being able to connect to my home Wi Fi.........I just turn the 735 off and then restart it. This then lets the phone connect to the Wi Fi without any further actions by me. No biggie. Sometimes during an app use it goes to a black screen.......I know better than to visit the local store for this because I know it would be a useless trip.......again no biggie. I just tap the button, because the double tap wake up doesn't always work.....again no biggie. To sync across all of my WP 10 devices.......in my dreams.

But the lack of the WP 10 Mobile update is for now a small biggie. Can Verizon just give us a small update.......so that I know the 735 can update.

All these small oddities can turn into something ugly and that drives customers away.

First we have to wait till Microsoft releases Windows 10 Mobile for each device.  News today from Microsoft that some devices (listing of devices wasn't provided) will require a firmware update prior to installing Windows 10 Mobile and we all know Verizon Wireless track record in releasing firmware to devices.

Dang!!!!!

Double Dang at that!!!!

I did get a update this morning......but I'm not too sure exactly what it was updating.

OS version: 8.10.15148.160

Firmware revision #: 02171.00002.15194.03084

The OS version hasn't changed and I'm not too sure about the Firmware number.

I guess a screen shot won't help for now but for later on, maybe.

Wow, you're understanding!!  You can live with having to turn your 735 off/on just to connect to your home WiFi?? That's a complete deal breaker for me. In fact, WiFi flakiness is one reason I abandoned WP and my Lumia Icon. It simply didn't do the things I expected it to do without having to jump through hoops. Basic things other phones do automatically and without fail. If the Surface Phone sorts out WiFi and bluetooth issues that seem to plague other WP devices I may just give it another try. For now, however, I'm using an iPhone and switching off to a Nexus 6p. Neither of those have the screen go black while using an app either! I refuse to put up with issues other platforms simply do not have, and shouldn't have. The ball is in Microsoft's court: make a phone that WORKS.

I use a lumia 735 on Verizon and still have a 1520 I use it on att go phone once in a while- I have win10 on both and have zero problems with wifi, Bluetooth or apps crashing, never had those problems on 8.1 either--this is the current win10 build that's slated to go out to the public--

     I just recently bought a nexus 6p and aside from apps I think android kinda sucks-- I can delete all the apps I don't use only disable some, 3 home screens WTF?!, and multitasking lag, my 735 handles multitasking better imvho

I'll be going to the "insiders" very soon and won't be waiting on the support from VZW.
