  • Fix for a problem that could result in unexpected battery drain while syncing mail using IMAP.
  • Improvements to the Maps app, including better stability, improved accuracy, and reduced latency with driving directions.
  • Improved reliability of syncing text messages from the phone to the cloud.
  • Reduced amount of time it takes some phones to completely power off after “Goodbye” disappears.
  • Fix for a problem that caused some phones unable to re-add a primary Microsoft account without resetting after upgrading from Windows Phone 8.1.
  • Fix for a problem that caused some phones unable to install keyboard and languages without resetting after upgrading from Windows Phone 8.1.
  • Reduced the number of days a phone can go without restarting to receive an update from 14 days to 7 days.
  • Fix for a problem that caused the phone to stop ringing from an incoming call, if interrupted by an SMS.
  • Fix for a problem that caused Project My Screen to stop working on some phones.

    Alex, any updates on the progress of making win10m on the 640? Many months ago you stated that tmobile is working on bringing windows 10 to the tmobile branded lumia 640 but we are still waiting. Att has released their windows 10 update for their branded 640.
    The reason I do not want to put insider builds on it, is the reports that it breaks wifi calling.
    Any info would be much appreciated. Thanks!
