Here's what's been fixed and what issues still remain in the Windows 10 Mobile 10136 build

Along with a list of what's new and improved in the just released Windows 10 Mobile preview build 10136, Microsoft's Windows Insider head Gabriel Aul has offered a list of what fixes has been put in the build compared to the older 10080 version. There's also a list of what issues are still around with this build.

Here's what Aul says has been fixed in build 10136:

  • We have fixed the MMS bug in Build 10080, and you should receive MMS messages normally.
  • We have fixed the issue where touch will stop responding on the Lock screen preventing you from swiping up to unlock your phone.
  • We have fixed some visual glitches in Action Center when expanding/collapsing.
  • We have fixed the issue where the text in the People app was too small.
  • When you toggle the Wi-Fi quick action in Action Center, it now disables/enables Wi-Fi instead of taking you to the Wi-Fi Settings page. This was one of the top 5 pieces of feedback we heard from Windows Insiders.
  • Your Start screen background should be scaled correctly now.
  • You can add a detailed status to display on your Lock screen from apps like Outlook Calendar without having the Settings app crash.
  • We also fixed the issue where a mouse cursor would appear when pressing the back button on your phone.

Here's the list of issues that some users might encounter when using build 10136:

  • After upgrading, you will still see duplicate tiles for apps like Search and Phone under All Apps.
  • If you have too many PIN unlock attempts, you'll see the "enter A1B2C3" reset experience. However, there is an issue in this build where after you enter the code you won't see the PIN pad. The workaround is to press Emergency Call after entering the code, then press Back and you'll be able to enter your PIN.
  • We recommend disabling the double-tap-to-wake feature on some Lumia devices by going to the Settings app then Extras > Touch > Wake to prevent any accidental PIN unlock attempts.
  • There is an issue that may cause Skype not to work after upgrade. The best workaround is to uninstall Skype on Windows Phone 8.1 before you upgrade to this build and then reinstall it after upgrading. If you miss that step though, you can usually resolve by uninstalling it and reinstalling from the Store once you're on 10136. If you're having issues installing new Language Packs in this build, see this forum post (opens in new tab).

Keep in mind that for this build, users will have to have Windows Phone 8.1 installed on their smartphone in order to get this newest build, and that people with the older 10080 Windows 10 Mobile preview build will have to downgrade to Windows Phone 8.1. Aul says:

"The upgrade experience is something that is very important for us to get right, so you should definitely expect that we'll address the migration bug that affected this build. In general, we expect that you should be able to upgrade build to build without having to flash back to 8.1."

  • Hands on video plzzzzz
  • Can someone tell if voice navigation works well with GPS over in-car Bluetooth? That is, no skipping/cutting-off of initial instruction.
  • This build seems worth upgrading than the prev. Builds m also waiting for the hands on video and will surely upgrade .! Its been long I wanted to have hands on W10 on my Lumia ;)
  • this build might be lil better ... but seriously what MSFT is doing with windows 10 mobile ... Look at android and IOS where they are heading ... still microsoft's phone OS looks imature .. not really big features coming except universal app running on pc and phone
  • Can you elaborate on 'where iOS and Android are going' in comparison? I haven't owned either for a couple years but I own and infrequently use an iPad and as far as I'm concerned it really hasn't gone anywhere in the 3-4 years that I've owned it. At least with regard to the UII. A simple grid of boring icons. I consider live tiles far advanced in comparison. I'm not disputing, just sharing my personal experience and interested in your knowledge/perspective. Even the keyboard on Windows is so far superior being able to swipe in different directions for common/special characters on my Windows tablet and then I grab my iPad and I'm so much less efficient (I know the keyboard comment only applies to full Windows but...) Anyway, definitely interested in more color/detail to your comment!    
  • @GreenScrew I would love to discuss it in detail but not feeling to type long messages. you can check videos on youtube. I will mention few things which are really awesome  Ability to customize android ... I mean literally I can make my android look like windows phone by changing themes. Background processing of apps, multi tasking are just awesome features of ios and android. Android always had support for mouse and keyboard, it took microsoft 6 yrs to realize. Android's notification center is one of the finest and I love LED notifications.  trust me its a long list, even microsoft is aware what are they missing on ... google it if you really want to know. 
  • These are concrete examples, hanks! I'd suggest, though, that we give credit where credit is due.  Microsoft is driving the innovation or change to a more modern and sleek OS experience.  This is something Android and iOS imitated with their confusing babbling of explanations: look up Google's definition and you'll see.  Apple is epitome of control of their experience, while Android the polar opposite.  Microsoft has always been somewhere in the middle.  I don't believe many want to customize my phone the way you describe it because it is impractical and useless once you get to a certain point.  We want some customization, but not so much crap that it hinders the OS and its functionality.  Everyone on this forum has seen all three experiences.  For me, Windows is the cleanest and most consistent; though, I will say that iOS made me take a second look. The brilliance of the live tile and transparency comes into play to give the boost of personalization while at the same time providing functionality.  The basic premise of "where [they] are heading" doesn't mean anything since in recent times its Microsoft that's been taking the lead.  Sure, no one notices because, well, its Microsoft.  And all of this isn't to say that they don't take great ideas from other platforms or that they haven't already.  Take a look at Notifications. Mouse and keyboard, these were ever novelty features on Android devices that everyone showed off at work but, in practice, don't use.  I think Microsoft sincerely expects this to be another way legitimate way to interact with the apps on Windows 10 Mobile.  One app customized for tablet, desktop, and phone form factor - I don't think it is intended as a gimmick, Continuum is meant to be a legit feature.  Not some curved edge, not some bloatware, not some useless personal assistant, not some cute animated background that hoards memory, processor, and battery.  
  • Hands-on, indeed! I want to see the one-handed feature in action, along with all the subtle changes all over the UX.
  • Here we go... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u4pz4H8j4gQ  WinCentral is kind of slow these days. Seems more interested in posting game-videos.
     
  • E3 coverage
  • Which is unnecessary on this site.
  • How is it unnecessary?     
  • I think it's unnecesary because this site formerly was windows phone central, a lot of people look news or any information related to windows phone OS, not games. For that we have sites like gamespot or something like that.
  • Get over it whiny cry babies, its Windows Central now. Find another site if the burden of skipping articles you have no interest in is too much for you. But here you are, still in the comments, whining and just plain annoying everyone.
    Daniel just wrote an article telling you to not do exactly what you are doing, skip articles if you have no interest. Now please, grow up, or do us all a favour and at least not post.
  • Your avatar respresent exactly the person you are.
  • See below. Windows. Not games.
  • Because it's not something he's interested in, and only things he likes should be allowed. 
  • Not at all. You're partly correct, I'm not interested in gaming, but it's about relevance. This site was once about Windows Phone and expanded to include all things Windows. Which was fine, we get the convergence thing. But now there's also a heavy presence of all things game. There's a tenuous connection to XBox and Microsoft, but it ain't Windows for me. And that weak link has given the editors carte blanche to turn the site into a gaming news hub.
  • I did start trading this site because of Windows Phone but I've liked expansion to all things windows. And to me that does include gaming.
  • Yeah I know.
  • So few Known Issues! Hope this is great!! :)
  • But the list of fixed features is also quite short compared to the number of bugs in 10080.  Hopefully they fixed more bugs than they listed.
  • Or If there is the split-screen for hd screen phones that was leaked a few days ago
  • I have been testing these builds on a backup device, an L635 I bought just for this purpose.  But my main driver is a One M8.  The showstopper there was the inability to hide the on-screen buttons.  Anyone know if this has been fixed?
  • Curious about this as well. Anybody know?
  • On 8.1 you can't hide the buttons either
  • Of course you can...or you couldn't use the phone!!!
  • I used the 10080 build briefly on my M8 and was able to hide the onscreen buttons. I think the issue was when people were loading the build onto the phone before it was officially supported.
  • Well, that's interesting.  I will try this build out on my L635, and if it isn't to bad, I'll give it a shot on the M8. Right now, I can't get it to download at all, but it may be my work network blocking traffic to the MS server.
  • I can't find any way to hide the on screen soft keys on the M8 under 10136. It is a major gap since some apps don't know how to handle screen real estate properly when that is displayed.
  • Thanks for the warning.  I'd consider that a dealbreaker.  Oh well, maybe the next one...
  • My son's HTC one m8 updated today. This is still a HUGE distracting issue. He can't find any way to hide his on screen buttons. Anyone else have a fix for this? Also we can't change the background image on the screen! Did microsoft even test this on the flagship windows HTC one m8? Also, minecraft pocket edition is now unusable on the phone because of the messed up user interface!!!
  • So tempted to try this, but got burned on the last build...
  • Come on Musicman, you know you want to. :D
  • Preparing to install 72%....
  • Hahaha! you the man! :D
  • Yeah same. Anyone know if text messages, or anything for that matter, gets backed up to OneDrive in 10080? The backup settings page isn't very specific, and the "Backup Now" button looks like a placeholder
  • Yes they do.  I did a hard reset my of phone while using 10080 and did not choose to recover the phone.  All of my texts were saved and recovered by the messageing app.
  • I'm not sure. I used to see my messages that I send from another phone in the first build, but not 10080
  • Massages?!
  • There is in option in the "Message" app that you can choose the age of messages to download, I Selected "any time" and it downloaded all my messages going back 2 years (that includes 2 different phones and 4 hard resets).
  • If I have WP8.1.1 on my Lumia 730, will I get directly updated to 10136 or WP8.1.2
  • From 8.1 I had one small update, prob update 1, then straight to 10. (suspect server I rolled back with didn't have updated OS for me)
  • Me too bro. Its hard to upgrade and then roll back to 8.1 because of a buggy build
  • He litereally got burned. His device overheated. 
  • Don't go for this one on primary device. Still get some bugs.
  • Seems like the issues list is getting shorter with each release.  It's good to see that W10P is developing well.  I'll put it on my spare L635 and contemplate putting it on my daily driver L1520. 
  • What about the low tile resolution on L930/Icon?
  • Loved that one hand use... My Lumia 1320 is gonna much easier from now
  • I gave feedback on that feature a week ago. I liked this thing from the iPhone 6.
  • Should I try on my daily driver.. Lumia 1320 ?
  • still there in 10136.
  • i have an icon and the text resolution on my tile is nice.  the text on the calendar app is small text very readable and not huge like last build.  some icons have tiny icons but nothing too concerning.  Definelty seems to run a lot better than the last build which i used the whole time since it was released on my phone.  Runs smoother but still wiating for all my stuff to download since there was a lot of apps it is restoring.
  • Is the constant "resuming" and lag gone?  I have an Icon and have been waiting build after build, but am scared to pull the trigger.  Don't get me wrong, I have done bug reporting, beta testing, alpha testing for many things - I am not afraid of bugs, I am afraid of an OS that is too slow to rely on.
  • The lag and resuming actually seems to be mostly gone. I still get it every now then but not nearly as bad as 10080 was. I'm actually quite surprised with how fluid 10136 is. Using it on my daily driver Lumia 1020.
  • I'm really tempted to give this a go on my main (only) phone.
    I tried the first build they ever made available for the 1520 and I just couldn't tolerate it. However I've been hearing this is much improved... I dont know. I'm really tempted though, and it seems like its gonna be a decade before mobiles get hit with the official Win10 upgrade.
  • Does anyone else gave an issue with screen resolution on Nokia 1520. The tiles seem to be low res
  • Great changes and the known bugs arent important for me
  • If this is all the bugs, I may upgrade
  • Those are known bugs from MS, which they think will impact user highly. There can be many bugs which are not known yet, and thats the point of this whole Insider Program. Anyway I am updating my only L920 to this build. ;)
  • Tell us your experience please!
  • Do tell us ur experience after the update
  • Updated my 920 and there is a great deal of lag opening apps. The touchscreen is inconsistant. Tapping "OK" or "Cancel" seems to take much more force to get it to register but, scrolling though apps is overly sensitive and apps open by mistake. Hopefully the next build will be better optimzed.  I also see the "Get Started" screen evrytime I open Outlook. 
  • Touch is now back under Extras. Go there and change the sensitivty to medium.
  • If that's all the fixes, you shouldn't upgrade :)
  • anyone knows if battery sense work fine on this build? i tweet gabe but not reply
  • Is Hey Cortana Working ?
  • Most important part WC didn't post yet: "For those of you that do choose to make the jump to this build it is SUPER IMPORTANT TO READ THIS: At the end of the upgrade the Lock screen will appear frozen without the date and time for up to 10 minutes. Please be patient and let it sit – eventually the date and time will appear and it will allow you to unlock your phone. There is a post-upgrade migration status screen missing, which normally would show you that it was making progress. If you get impatient and restart or mess with locking/unlocking your phone, you’ll wind up in a funky state – so just relax and let it do its thing."
  • It's in a previous post, actually. But sure, it should be specified here as well.
  • I just thought it was a very important part. Someone can lose some data :)
  • I am already a victim of that. I Forced reboot twice before reading this when I was unable to unlock the screen. Also, the phone was heating up like crazy while in this wait ten minutes state. I am now waiting the ten minutes now hopefully it works and niot already killed my precious L-1520
  • Took about 15minutes wait, after which I logged in and all is smooth, I love the start screen, All apps I have tested thus far are working very fine. The trasparent start background is now working. I love the look and feel, way better than 10080. And having L1520 arge screen is a plus on the tiles visuals. I need to play with it a bit more, but in my case very encouraging. Before I forget, when I searched for app from start screen, it took me to this prety looking app store that looks like tablet / pc app store, it looked very fancy
  • I like the new Phone app, I can tap a number and search a contact, and WiFi toggle now works as it should. But I couldn't enable the Hotspot feature.
  • I AM REALLY tempted to upgrade from 8.1 on my 1520 My question is.... did you lose your contacts , messages and apps after the upgrade? or they were carried upon updating? :)   thanks in advance :D
  • Yes... WC missed to copy these texts from the blog. The author was in hurry to post the article.
  • The 'writer' was assuming that everyone would read the previous article as well.
  • Oh...
  • Any posting on how to get out of Funky state or is my L-1520 toast?
  • Turning the screen on and off rapidly will show the actually migration percentage bar...odd
  • It is already mentioned in earlier article
  • I'm on WP 8.1 . I'm a part of windows insider program and I didn't download the previous build ;now the question is :if I download the last update It will be 10080 or 10136?
  • 10136. 8.1 >> 10136.
  • I have no laptop then why can downgrade to windows 8.1
  • The same funckly state ;) Wait for braves to try it first.
  • If your on the Fast Ring. I PRAY they did not put 10080 to Slow ring. Avoid that at ALL COSTS!!!!
  • U should be seeing 10084 on ur phone, am having same issue right now but I think we may have to do a factory reset and download the windows insider app again to configure foe this new build. So far no one has been able to answer my this same question I posted even sent to @gabeaul himself.
  • If your registered insider on 8.1 you will most likely get 10080 on the fast ring or 9941 on the slow ring. So in order to get 10136 now you have to roll back (from 8.1 insider to 8.1 non-insider) with WFRC ver2.1.1 or LSRT ver5.0.8.
  • If you go to phone update, if it says show details, then you probably have 10080 update pending.  If you uninstall window insider, then reset phone after backing up to 8.1. you will not have to worry about 10080.  It has been removed by microsoft.  the show details earlier will say 10.0.1254... for 10080, this is not the case with 10136
  • I'll install on my Nokia Lumia 925 but hold out on the HTC One M8. Great work guys for pushing out another build, that hopefully is much improved.
  • Let me know how it turns out. The last build on my 925 the phone have issues with cellular or Wi-Fi data.
  • It's much better I'm impressed so far. Now I'm thinking of putting it on my daily driver.  
  • For anyone on build 10136, is they keyboard the same as in 10080? or is it like in 8.1 again?
  • I guess the caller I'd issue is still unfixed. Please fix this for the next build. It is the main reason I can't use windows 10 as my daily driver.
  • You aren't supposed to use it as daily driver..
  • Have u installed the new build already?
  • Some of these bugs are present in WP8.1 update.
  • Hoping the WiFi shortcut in the Action Center has the option to go to WiFi settings. It made switching to different AP's real easy.
  • HOLD any setting toggle for 5 seconds and it will take you to setting directly.
  • 5 seconds seems long. Maybe they should shorten that to like 3?
  • It does it in about 2 seconds on my HTC One with the 10080 build
  • Is this a 10 thing? I only have 8.1 on my phone.
  • Just tap and hold on the shortcut
  • So will a long press on a toggle in the Action Center open the setting? Is this planned?
  • Its already there in 10080 build
  • Oh, I must have missed that. Thanks!
  • I find it funny that they never even acknowledged the start screen bug when that was the biggest issue with 10080 and one of the largest threads in the TP forum.
  • Yeah mate that is ridiculous.
    Still there or fixed ?
  • As in the scaling problem? That's fixed
  • Nah, as in the start screen wouldn't load unless you did a hard reset bug.
  • Is it the same one that you press the Start button to easily fix?
  • Uhh no? It's the one where your sarcasm didn't really hit if that's what you were going for.
  • I've encountered a problem where every time I closed an app it would go to black, and I woul d just press the start button and it'd load Start. Idk whether it's the same problem
  • Nah, on my 920 the start screen never loads. It sits at "Loading" forever and I never planned on hard resetting.
  • I also had that issue on my 920. I left it on until the battery drained, let it sit for a couple days and after turning it back on and leaving it for an hour the start screen returned. I was not going to hard reset it because i have quite a few games you cant download anymore and I wouldn't want to lose them.
  • As they say "Seems faster".   Not hanging on it anymore. 
  • Please tell me that we now have contact support!  Last build did not recongnize contacts stored in the phone.
  • This
  • We have fixed the issue where touch will stop responding on the Lock screen preventing you from swiping up to unlock your phone.
    I had that problem on 8.1 with my 1520
  • Same here on my 1520 running 8.1
  • Same on my HTC One on 10080
  • Same on 8.1 with lumia 620
  • I have it on Lumia 920 on Windows Phone 8.1. All I do is press the Windows key and then I can swipe to unlock. 
  • OR
    just press 'camera' button, let it load and press 'back' button and your unlock screen will be acive again
  • I have that problem in a brand new 640. It's good to see it fixed.
  • It was there in 8.1 but in W10 build 10080 if that bug happens u have to soft reset the device which in my case everytime I try to do a soft reset it goes in a boot loop and the only option is a hard reset which can be painful.
  • I'll test it on my just ordered Lumia 640 once it gets arrived! Can't wait ^_^
  • Can I install this latest build in Lumia 720... I got more tempered on all other build...
  • What about loading.... Issue home screen ?
  • Can anyone confirm the L930/Icon are usable on this build? 10080 had some show stoppers for my Icon even after resetting W10M.
  • It much much better than 10080. It's smoother and usable on daily bases. Still some improvments need to be done to looding bug on the start screen but that only shows once in 10 times.
  • I tried it on my Icon and it wasn't usable at all. I'm going to revert it back to 8.1.  It constantly restarts when doing anything (going into the store, changing settings, opening apps, unlocking the phone, etc). At least it seems to restart quickly...
  • Stuck at 8% download...
  • Are you still stuck at 8%? If not, how did you resolve it?
  • Find no updates for me
  • Anyone know the update size?
  • Around 550 Mb
  • If I am on 10080 do I have to downgrade to update entirely? Or will they have a update that I can update to in a week or two so that I do not have to go through the hassel of downgrading
  • I think you should go back to WP 8.1
  • The next Build will be upgradable from 10080.
  • Guess I'll suffer and wait. If I have to go back to 8.1 I'd find it hard to justify putting it back on my daily driver.
  • Van this be used as my daily driver?
  • Not able to upgrade. "Unable to check for updates" for some reason.
  • Try to check your storage. Maybe u need to free up some space..
  • What about the swipe keyboard? Did they fix it?
  • It was working great already.
  • Other than when it would crash the device yes it was great.
  • Flashed back to 8.1 and my 1520 on fast track sees no updates to get to win10
  • It took me like 2 tries. You put the Insider back on and ran? I had to cancel all the other updates which were trying to come down so it had a clear path.
  • Will try again, been trying all day, says no updates available.
  • How do you cancel the other updates? Mine is still giving me update notification for 10080
  • I had a hard time rolling back from the old builds. How do you flash back to 8.1
  • Here is whats new and Will mess up your phone before the real release.
  • :D
  • Is this build ready for Lumia 930? and is it working on the L930 aswell....
  • Has anyone found it reliable on their 928? I had to revert back to 8.1, but I would like to give TP another try.
  • Is this build usable for everyday use or no?   
  • That's by far the least menacing "Known Issues" list since phone insider preview began ;)
  • My 920 keeps rebooting after the last update. Hardly opened my phone for 2 days. Lumia 920
  • Want to try 10136....but still stuck on 10080 on my lumia 1520.....feeling sad & neglected
  • Just go back to 8.1... What are you waiting for❓❓
  • On track to put this on. I had 10080 on as a daily driver and I can tell you that it rebooted itself a LOT!. MMS click to expand picture, boom Reboot. Lot of issues around Calls too. This just has to be better. It CANT be any worse.  
  • Does anyone have some magic words to how to downgrade to Wp8.1 without pc  ̄ˍ ̄
  • Can't. Is that enough magic? :)
