There's a lot going on in the world of Windows Phone. So much, in fact, that it is sometimes tough to catch every important story. Device rumors come and go. New apps join the Windows Phone Store, and your favorite app can get a big update with a new look or new features.
Therefore, every week we will compile a list of the Windows Phone news that you just shouldn't miss. Welcome to the "Windows Phone Weekly Digest."

After playing around with Windows 10 Mobile build 10149, it looks like cellular download limits in the Windows Phone Store have been removed. That means you can download some of the bigger games and apps without having to connect to Wifi.
There also appeared to be some odd occurrences in the build. Be it missing Call History, no Glance controls, quirky Quiet Hours, or funky error messages, build 10149 had its imperfections. However, most of these quirks have fixes and 10149 remains the most stable and best performing iteration of Windows 10 Mobile yet.
