I am a Windows Insider for Windows 10 Mobile.  We have 2 735's.  My phone is running Windows 10 Mobile Version 1511 and I'm a Verizon customer.  Windows 10 runs fine on my phone.  So what is the holdup?

Everything is working well except. My Hotmail account. And it does not even allow me to remove it. And start over. Any suggestions?

Hotmail has been problematic for me on several different platforms. And with Microsoft phasing it out in favor of Outlook.com it's questionable if you'll get support for setting up a mobile platform correctly.

I transitioned to Outlook.com from Hotmail and Outlook works perfectly. But I'm afraid even the official instructions from Microsoft may not work for you. The settings you need are in this article: Set up Hotmail/Outlook as an Exchange account on your Android device | Vodafone Support

Even though it's for Vodafone, the settings like server names/addresses are universal.The last mobile device I got Hotmail to work on, even semi-reliably,  was a BlackBerry.

Thank you and got it back with a little doing.  I am currently motoring around on windows 10 Version 1511 OS build 10.0.14295.1000 and all is well.  I do not suggest going this far ahead but the second Insider version I downloaded many things were quirky.  If you listen the the other members on the forum carefully you can get to windows 10 production version.  That is my suggestion but you have to follow directions very carefully.

I think the reason Microsoft does not release many and lately no Windows phones on the CDMA radio band is because Verizon blocks updates until they are forced to.  I am glad I no longer have an idiotic contract holding me to them!

Wrong... Look at the Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X, Moto X 2015, and iPhones.  With Block C rules Microsoft could have made a CDMA capable device they can control all the want and Verizon has to give them to code to do it.  They chose not to pay the licensing required for CDMA(This is paid to the FCC, and Qualcomm).

Tidbits...I was not referring to their licensing of the radios.  I said Microsoft is NOT releasing new phones with CDMA radios because Verizon, the only company for practical purposes using CDMA, blocks updates until they are forced to allow them through their network.  Why license radios on phones that will not get updates in a timely manner making your devices and OS look bad?  Seems like a good idea to me saves them money and reputation.

I will add that I wish it were just Microsoft causing the issue but as usual it is a Verizon issue.

Reread it.

That speculation people are saying is the most stupid I have ever heard. Sure let's shrink our markets hare even more because we can't have our way when in fact THEY can have their way. Learn the Block C rules which Google, Motorola, and Apple are taking advantage of... then say because Microsoft can't have their way like they are children.
