Known issues of Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview Build 10572

Visual Voicemail sync is broken on some devices. You may need to call your voicemail directly within the Phone app > Settings > Change more settings for Phone > Call Voicemail.

Opening message threads within the Messaging app will crash on dual SIM phones if the second line’s Messaging tile is removed from the Start screen (even if only a single SIM is used). The second line’s Messaging app will also appear to be removed from the All apps list. To work around this issue, the second line messaging tile must be linked to the first line messaging tile by opening up the first line in the Messaging app then go to Settings > link tiles.

On Dual SIM devices, unpinning the second line Phone tile from the Start screen will make the entry disappear from the All apps list. Rebooting the phone will cause the tile and application to both reappear.

Photos cannot be selected for sharing through third party apps like Facebook, Facebook Messenger, Instagram Beta, WhatsApp etc.

Some devices will get into a state where the Phone app will continually crash upon launch. Resetting the device will recover it from this state.

Devices that have updated from Windows Phone 8 to Windows Phone 8.1 may lose the ability to connect to Wi-Fi on Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds or may fail to update to Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview builds all together. You can use the Windows Device Recovery Tool to first update your device to Windows Phone 8.1 and then upgrade to the latest Windows 10 Mobile Insider Preview build.

It took a very long time, maybe 4 or 5 hours (I pressed the "Install updates" button before going to sleep, and woke up early this morning to the Windows 10 lock screen), but seriously this is the smoothest upgrade I’ve ever experienced on any device.

It runs fast and smooth, "loading" screens are still present from time to time, but they last for less than one second so they don’t break the "flow" as before, there’s a ton new options compared with 8.1, battery life is good so far, the new apps are great and better than the old one (Word, Excel, PP, OneNote, Outlook), Cortana is better and has a better "voice", and the new camera app is BLAZING fast, it takes less than one second to fire up.

I was honestly thinking about jumping ship to an Android device for my next upgrade (especially after the bad impression I had with 10080), but after 950/950XL presentation (and Continuum is a killer feature for me) and seeing how the last Win10Mo runs on a 3 years old phone (with an old dualcore CPU and 1GB of RAM), I’m definitely sold.
