    I have a Lumia 650 that I bought beginning of November. Then it got an update, I read that DTTW was part of it...enabled it in settings and it worked great. Then a few weeks ago, I noticed it was gone. It's nowhere to be found and doesn't work at all. Anyone know what happened?

    I'm using Cricket Wireless in the U.S. and have the latest updates available through the Updates screen. Thanks.

    Hello NEURO,

    I still have this setting available in the latest Insider build 14977 on a Lumia 1520.

    Hey Brink,

    I'm not using the Insider builds on my phone. I'm on build 10.0.14393.576. It's just odd that I had DTTW last month, after I updated the new phone with the September update. Then 3-4 weeks ago, DTTW just vanished from the phone.

    Odd. Hopefully it'll return for you in the next build.

    I'm guessing you haven't heard of anything like this from anyone else? If anyone would know, you would.

    Getting tired of the laws of physics and the universe not applying to my world for some reason...always the odd duck.

    This is the first I heard of it, but the new build was only released yesterday. We shall see how many others were affected the same way.
