Downgrading WP10 RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hi guys!

    Some in here might think the question is a joke, but I am unfortunately dead serious: Is there a way to downgrade a Lumia 950 to Windows Phone 7?

    Yes, you read the question correctly, I want to go down all the way to WP7... And the reason, in case you are wondering, is that since WP7 all that we saw on "Enhancements" were very minor, but the issues just kept piling up more and more. My primary issue is the reliability of the Glance/Lock screen as well as the Live tiles. Worked fine in WP7, starting becoming shaky in WP8, was bad in WP10 and became worse in the last months. (Now I have a three day old appointment on my glance, totally wrong mail numbers, and missed calls / text messages don't get updated at all anymore.) I am sick and tired of installing patch after patch and nothing gets fixed, everything just degenerates more and more... I want back to an OS version that at least gets the basics right. (Not even talking about the massive issues with Synchronisation across many apps...)

    thx

    Rick

  • Hi Rick.

    There is no way to install a previous Windows Phone version on the Lumia 950 smartphone: that phone is a native Windows 10 smartphone and there is no way to do that.

  • I did... And upvoted those I already found there. Unfortunately Microsoft really screwed that one up...
