    Microsoft now plans March Windows 10 Mobile rollout

    February has come and gone without the highly anticipated Windows 10 Mobile upgrade for legacy Lumia handsets. In an email to partners, seen by VentureBeat, Microsoft is now targeting a release this month, to occur after the regular monthly service updates for the two Windows 10-powered handsets already on the market, the Lumia 950 and 950 XL.

    Unlike the previous schedule, reported by VentureBeat at the end of January, this one separates the upgrade from the service update. In other words, whereas the February rollout would have seen the update bundled into the upgrade, in March they are expected to be two distinct processes.

    The rollout is said to begin passively, from Microsoft’s perspective, in that users will need to initiate it manually from their handsets. Only afterwards, on an unspecified timetable, will the company begin actively pushing the new firmware to eligible devices...

    I'm receiving this build (10.0.10586.164) in the UK today, on non-insider phones (630, 635, 640, 640XL).

    They were all on Windows 10 Mobile, but not currently registered in the Insider Program, and were instead set to only receive 'Production' builds after 10586.107. So it seems 10586.164 is a production build.

    ETA: Device Encryption is a bit temperamental if you turn it off and back on again though. The slider goes to 'On' for about 7 seconds, then switches itself back off. Eventually it stays on after numerous attempts (and by numerous I mean probably about 20 times including switching device on/off a couple of times), but not sure why.
