Note that "The post-upgrade migration status screen is missing after upgrading to this build which normally shows you the progress of the post-upgrade migration. After upgrading, 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. 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."

  • Issue where Call+SMS filtering would not work after the upgrade
  • Issue where text notification not appearing for incoming messages
  • Issue where Podcast app would'nt work

  • Issue where navigation bar couldn't be hidden
Some Known issues in Build 10149
  1.  issue where the Install button doesn’t respond after Build 10149 is downloaded. Make sure the battery is charged >40% and press it again.
  2. Some people may encounter an 80091007 error trying to upgrade to this build from Build 10136. Microsoft is working on a fix.
  3. The Insider Hub is removed in this build. It will be available in future builds.
  4. Sometimes the PIN keypad won’t be shown after swiping up to unlock. The workaround is to swipe down to get to Action Center and try to open a notification or Settings to invoke the PIN keypad to unlock your phone.
  5. There is a very rare situation where you are unable to unlock your phone after entering your PIN and it keeps letting you type even though you entered your pin correctly. If you hit this – leave the phone alone 1-2 hours before trying to unlock again. This is caused by a TPM issue that could get worse and require you to reflash if you get into this state and power off the phone.
  6. If a Gmail account is set up on the phone, the Messaging app may have issues and both incoming and outgoing messages may not work. If this issue is hit, simply reboot your phone to get it working again.
  7. There is a known issue where apps or games are installed as trial versions even though you have previously purchased them. In-app purchases on Windows 10 Mobile are not functional yet
  8. In certain cases, the colors in some apps may appear off. For example – the titlebar in the Outlook Mail app is orange.
  9. There might be some cases where notifications in Action Center appear blank.
