    Wow. You're moving quick. A little too quick IMO. This is your first Windows phone, yes?

    Hey Cortana works great for me. Did you get to the training part? If not, it's in her settings.

    Reduce the size of the tile if you don't want it live.

    How's it going with 10?
    From what I read Hey Cortana doesn't work for all phones. The 640XL being one of them. If I click the microphone it works great. I tried updating to Windows 10 on the fast track and had way to many problems. I went back to Windows 8. Right now I'm downloading Windows 10 from the slow track so I can try again. The download is going very slow. I'm still at 9%. The last time it took around 2 hours. I would have stayed with build 10166 but I couldn't sign in to my MSA and a few other problems.

    I upgraded from windows 8.1 update 2 to Windows 10 build 10149. It still will not let me sign in to my MSA
    When I try I get a screen that says Just a moment with spinning dots. I waited for over a half hour and the dots were still spinning. The keyboard. Doesn't pop up if I have the phone flipped. I got my contacts back and lost my text messages even though I transferred them from my Galaxy again. On occasion when I select something the is like it's frozen for a few seconds. I'm still trying it out. I might try build 10166 out again in a few days.

    I just hope that Microsoft releases their new lineup on ALL carriers with no stupid variants such as the 822 and 925 and 821 and the likes. Just make each device be on all carriers or available from all carriers.

    But having said that, I'm going to retire my trusty old Nokia Lumia 920 after a solid two and half years of service and sidestepping to a Lumia 830 to tide me over until the flagships arrive for 10.

    Speaking about carriers and contracts, I do hope Microsoft keeps pushing for no contract phones. I like that idea. I personally will be buying the phones off contract, the 830 I bought is a gently used model for a killer deal. When I was on the hunt for a new Windows Telephone today, it really underscored the fact how quickly and steeply a phone only two years old drops in price. My 920 when it first launched was running around $650 and more if it was in red. Now, you can get it for about $150 or so. Now imagine if this was on contract. I would have overpaid greatly for a device that lost a vast majority of its value. That's no good.

    The 830 I'm excited to play around with, it's a tad better than a 920 and has nifty things like the Hey Cortana feature.

    But the 950 and 950XL that will come out, definitely want to know more about them!

    Yes this is my very first Windows phone. So far I'm very impressed with it. I bought the phone outright so if i decide I want one of the newer models when released I can still use one of AT&Ts upgrade plans.

    No offense, but it seems you're moving a little fast with it. If this is your primary phone then I'd stick with 8.1 Denim. That's the latest edition. The 10 preview builds are unstable as you can see. I feel you should learn 8 first. That'll give you time before 10 final release IMHO.

    No offense taken. I bought this phone to experiment with. I still have my Galaxy phone if I need it. I'm having alot of fun playing around with it. Plus I'm learning a lot about Windows phones. With that said I hope I don't brick this phone because I actually like it.

    I also bought a Windows phone to find out if it would suit me. I bought a 640XL as I liked the size. Unfortunately no for me and I have gone back to Samsung Galaxy S5 and will stick with android phones from now on until such time as there are a real windows competitor. If only Microsoft could make a phone in the same quality and ability as the Surface Pro 3 brought to the 2 in 1 tablet/laptop market.
