    BTW - I found that I can resize the News tile to my liking by making it smaller, then it'll let you make it bigger.
    I'm still playing with it, so I'll post more as I discover things :0)

    635 seems to be the "go to".

    IMHO it's the best bang for the buck. The 635 is my FIRST smartphone. I have been using AT&T GoPhone plan. Average cost per month was $10. Bought the 635 at Walmart's on a special for $39.95. Kept the same GoPhone plan with AT&T and they kindly transferred my contacts gratis and I'm still paying $10 per month. Granted, I have to use hot spots when away from home or my computer club but I'm a Senior and don't need those expensive contracts. I have access to all my files via OneDrive and can use TeamViewer to operate my home computer if necessary. Just loving this "cheap" 635 Windows Phone.

    635 is the cheapest phone on the list of compatible phones.
    Expect that to change in later versions of Win10Phone as they support more phones.

    I have a iPhone 5s and will hang onto it until the contract is up.
    Haven't decided if I'll go with a WinPhone or not.
    It depends on how they develop the new OS.

    I had a problem with the weather app not syncing itself with the data on the lock screen. It appears that this is a common problem.
    The Kindle app doesn't allow viewing of subscriptions - this may be a deal breaker for me as I subscribe to several magazines.
    Can't figure out how to stop an app from downloading updates - I've just had to uninstall the apps in order to stop it (?this may be by design?)
    No customizing of the Quiet Hours app (unless I missed something)
