Microsoft working on Windows 10 Preview server issues for updates

If you are some of the thousands waiting to get their hands on build 10051 of Windows 10 Technical Preview for phones, you are probably experiencing lots of server issues.

Microsoft has taken to the blog with an update on the matter. Long story short: it is going to be another two hours before the situation is resolved.

If, however, you are on the Fast Track for the Insider program and already on build 9941 (the old one), you may be able to sneak in line and get the update. Our Lumia 635 is installing the update as we speak, and a few others are also getting updated.

We will post a refresher when Microsoft resolves the issue. In the meantime, we'll try to get some screenshots and videos up shortly of the new build to tide you over. Here is the excerpt from the updated Microsoft blog post:

"We discovered this morning that there was an error in the database for provisioning record data, which is required for new phones to join the Fast Ring through the Windows Insider app. The team has been working to correct it but the load on the provisioning data servers has made all operations extremely slow. To fix the issue, we are taking the service offline and updating the provisioning record data for all 5100 phone POPs. It will take approximately 2 hours for us to make the update, and validate that everything is working. This is a different service from Windows Update, so Insiders who are currently on 9941 should be able to update their phones if they are already in the Fast ring. If they are in the Slow ring they will encounter the same issue with provisioning data. We apologize for the delay on this and are working to ensure it never happens again."

So grab a coffee as it's going to be a loooong day (or night).

  • Happy Friday everyone, I'm really glad to see there is so much enthusiasm for Windows 10 (Mobile) on this website.  I'm hoping a lot of Android users get converted to Windows Phone in the coming years.  Android is so laggy.

  • m moving to tin boxes and string thing :p
  • Humm.. I think I'm moving to smoke signals...
  • Back to a flip phone.
  • Come on guys! Let them have the positive support from users! Every tech firm has it's server errors. Apple does have this and the way Google update is frantically useless and discouraging.
    The positive side is that we are the only users that get to "test" OS before RTM.
    So show loyalty!
  • Apple does this now as well. They did it with the ios 8.3 update
  • Yep...but their updates are going out to hundreds of millions of devices all at the same time!
    These updates are going out to 0.01% of Windows Phone users (I.e., hardly anyone!)
  • When did they ever listen to and implement something customers asked for during their beta?
    .
    Microsoft has released this to people who wants to have a say in the development. Apple does it to see if phones break.
  • We are just making fun, its all good, this doesn't mean we lost loyalty to Windows phone or MS.
  • So true.. Just for fun yaar
  • Yeah every tech firm has this - but its MS. The same guys who recovered from DDOS against Xbox Live in hours when it took Sony PlayStation Network days. We are fans because we know MS is better, but this is letting that belief down.
  • Really though? This is an issue with their preview servers, the ones you are privileged to have access to and which are still in beta themselves. Give them a break.
  • Days? It took like two weeks for PSN to get back to working for me... :/
  • Agreed. I was an Apple loyalist for many years and they never solicited my feedback by releasing previews.  
  • Cyanogen.
  • I'm moving to Sun
  • Take me with u..
  • My Palm Treo 680 says hi
  • Oops.. Missed the bus to move on.. Guess I'll be staying with lovely smooth WP only.
  • I'm moving to the other side of the room to escape the fart I just ripped.
  • Im moving to my bed, and corpse around for the next two hours
  • Haha, this is why I love WP forums. It's always feast or famine. "WP to get..." = All hail MS, windows. "MS to release ... on iOS and droid" = Windows phone is dead. 50 shades of white or black, fuck grey.        
  • @Mrbrooks78: Lol! I literally turned pink and gad tears of Jo in my eyes reading your comment!!! So true and hilarious people in this forum are, me included :D

  • I'm moving to MS-DOS Mobile...oh wait, it doesn't load the keyboard drivers on my 830 so I guess I'm stuck. LOL
  • M moving round and round
  • Going to dual booting as per ms patent!
  • Moving on and going back to sleep *yawn*
  • Me and a few other homies are sticking with 8.1
  • For the record, the download/prepare/installation is also VERY long...so yeah.
  • It's always really long honestly..
  • Twss
  • I'll do the download when I get home from work. Then let it install during my 5 hr trek to Boston. Not quite what I had in mind, but one way or another I'll get to test out W10 by end of day today
  • I don't care homie, I'll check some new uploads on YouPorn
  • +1
  • +2. AND....atleast that will be more fun.....and def more satisfying.....lol
  • Why do the updates always say 5-10 minutes when we all know that it will take much longer?
  • How long on the 635?
  • That's would be 635 days, sit tight they are working on it
  • Was refering to how long the new update was taking Daniel Rubino as they were already installing via update not the Insider app.
  • Shit!!! I own a 920 :-( oh well... At least my condition is better than 1520 owners :-P
  • Thanks for the heads up Dan!
  • Yeah the whole process for icon owners is going to take about a month. Maybe longer. On another note, your name sounds like you're maybe gay? What does your bf call you?? Danny?
  • I've been on the "gears" screen for a long time was starting to get worried. Thanks for the update.
  • ...and I'm going to have to do it twice. I'll load it up on my 920 and see if it's something I want to carry around everyday.  If so, I'll probably put it on my 1020 on Sunday.
  • I'll give you something very long;) lol
  • Sadly here in Italy it's Friday night and nightlife's calling. But my love for Microsoft is keeping me at home
  • You should have gone out to enjoy while your phone updates.. lost your night! :P 
  • K
  • Was it that hard to predict what was going to happen?
  • Bing predict :p
  • Go ask on Bing Distill
  • They predicted and working on it :-) they started fixing their servers before they brick our phones right??? All hail Bing for the correct prediction ;-)
  • Yesterday Google said they were going to block something big happening in tech.....
  • Lol seriously?
  • Lol... No, I just made that up... Figured it would piss someone off.. Lol.
  • Beautiful. Well they clearly dropped the ball and they see it. This is bad PR and a bad show overall. But hey folks, we WILL get the preview. So dont go flipping out completely
  • Preview build. No ball to drop. It's like preseason. It doesn't mean anything except learn from mistakes and what not.
  • Yep, except when the mistake made is seen by thousands
  • not really ios has had issues with their updates look at the touch id issue wit their new update and thats not beta, yet u dont see 1,000,000 people crying about it and waaaay more people got that update
  • Hey, we both commented on the same thing! :D
  • Even if iPhone bend, even if call drops because you hold your phone in hand, iPhone owners never even gossip yet alone shout out :-P
  • Lol exactly. I think that says something about them. They never vocalize any wrongdoing of their deity Apple
  • At least it's less serious than iOS 8.0.1, which frickin bricked every iPhone which updated to it. That was the final release, and it was a big mistake.
  • I don't think you know what bricked means. 
  • Well, it did break cell service and TouchID, and for a lot of people, that renders the phone almost useless. I know what bricked means.
  • It could still be used, though.
  • It means that a brick falls on your phone and destroys it.
    Bricked, right.
  • Yes.
  • Hahahaa. :D
  • Its not about which company messed up worse. Fact of the matter is, the ball was dropped. They say it even in their post that they'll make sure this never happens again. Are you excusing them? And if so, will you excuse every fumble? Improvement doesn't happen by people putting blindfolds on
  • I'll excuse them, as it's work in progress. Get some perspective.
  • Im excusing them. My message was more to salve the complaints others would have. The "im switching phones" people. Regardless, its a mess up
  • Seconded!
  • It's a test build, things don't always work out as expected, hence the name, TEST build. They are testing it out right now, you know, TESTING?
    How is this "dropping" the ball when they are doing a test of the whole thing including the delivery process? If this was the final version, I would understand your gripe but this is just asinine.
  • Just as easily how this happened during the rollout of their second tech preview for phones, it can occur during their official one. If they felt there would be issues on delivery, they wouldn't have divulged a time and a date to the world. At least they have the opportunity now to fix their process before the official rollout
  • Oh, I didn't see that post. Well, if that's true, then they did kind of fall back on that promise.
    -----
    "To enjoy the good, one should accept the bad."
  • And improvement doesn't happen if we shout against something that already happened. Learning, however, helps.
  • Right. So it makes more sense to keep mum when ppl mess up. Sound strategy
  • No. But it makes more sense to let go of a problem that is publicly acknowledged and was promised that it will be taken care of in the future. But that decision lies with individuals :-)
  • When you expect everything to work DONT install the preview. Please!!!!
  • Thats not what anybody is saying. Dont be an apologist. What I stated is fact. Nothing more,nothing less. They messed up and they said so themselves
  • Its a phone, get some perspective
  • If you really felt that way and the need to say that, then you don't belong on this site or any enthusiast site for phones for that matter. Microsoft is a company employing thousands. Perspective is, they messed up. And when evaluations come around, these things are remembered. For me, im just sitting tight
  • Yup... That's the way I do too :-)
  • I have written this before, and will write it again: Apple user - Thank-you Apple for giving us Apple Maps, causing me to drive my car into the ocean because the data was wrong. You called it beta and forced millions of people to not only use it, but pay for it it too. You worked really hard, and people are just being mean to you because they hate you and you don't deserve this treatment. Microsoft user - Screw you Microsoft, I hate you because it took you 30 minutes longer to deliver beta software after you promised us. You ruined my life and a few others that chose to get this optional software that I was told was not going to work perfectly, so I am going to make sure everyone knows about how horrible you are for ruining my life.
  • I've said this before and ill say it again. Without constructive criticism, nothing will ever improve. Thats the entire purpose of the uservoice website. Its the entire purpose of the tech preview.
  • No, what you stated is not constructive criticism. It is whiny, self-important, entitled demands. You needed to wait 30 minutes to get free beta software? Oh no! I can see why this has ruined your life. They know what the problem was, acted to immediately fix it, and now it is working. You whining about it is not constructive, it is acting like a child who is upset because you needed to wait in line to get your ice cream rather than getting it when you demanded to get it. Seriously, if this is the worst thing that has happened to you, needing to wait a few extra minutes to download a bit of software, then you must have a great life. BTW, Apple often has the same issues. When I had an iPhone it was common that they would put the software up, you would download it and their registration server would go down (actually, it was hacked, don't ask how I know this...) and then I would need to wait 12 or so hours until they decided to try to fix it. And that was with production software. But if you think Microsoft is so horrible to their users, I am sure Apple would love to have you as a customer.
  • Honestly guy, you're kind of overreacting. I didn't say im gonna burn the building to the ground. I didn't say Microsoft is a horrible company and needs to die. I said that they dropped the ball, which is what they did. I stand by that. They even said it more or less, in their blog post.
    I never stated Microsoft is horrible to their users. I never stated this ruined my life. I never stated this bothers me one bit. My post, maybe poorly worded.. Was meant to tell others "yes they messed up... But we will get the preview, so dont panic"
  • Well said. . . I guess.
  • Android user???
  • Ummm no lol. Im just a realist and not afraid to say anything critical about something I love. A lot of sensitive folk here though
  • That question is for nohone :-)
  • I agree with nohone. People complain too much at the drop of a hat. I'm talking about people who use bad English and don't know what the hell they're talking about.
  • MS dropping the ball is nothing new.
  • I can see why you'd say that. The way I look at it is this... Diamonds are forged through pressure
  • I am sure it will be worth the wait :)
  • Every setback has a major comeback
  • +1
  • Gosh darn it!
  • Sure, it is. Waiting for screen shots and hands on video.
  • Me too.
  • Or a loooong night.. In my case...
  • Same here.. Loooong night..!!
    I have exam tumoro.. :/
  • I know the feeling bro. Good luck!
  • Dude study for the exam or get some sleep. You can try the build tomorrow.
  • Abe soo jaa, kal fail karega kya??
  • Wo exam me build ke flaws or fixes likh aae ga.
  • XD
  • Well... Microsoft indeed helping you by giving you two more extra hours of study :-) all the best for your exam :-)
  • Gonna be a long night where I am
  • Any 730s with 9941 getting the update?
  • Yep. I'm getting it..
  • Man.
  • Hey..can u confirm if navigation bar can now be hidden and background images are now shown on start screen?
  • Gosh I can't wait for these unusable office hub and broken data connection! Been waiting for these features! Thumbs up!
  • They have removed the hub so that they can replace it with the Office for phones client in two-four weeks.
  • preview...
  • Relax and give them 3-4 hrs.. And stop checking preview builds.. This will have more problems for them to fix it..
  • Nah, checking or not checking won't do anything now, they took it offline.
  • Ohhh ok.. I'll be installing it tomorrow in the morning.. Good night.. :)
  • India I am waiting for Morning for Clear and fast Server for download
  • No wifi here. So I'm waiting for the AIRTEL 1GB Night Data Pack to download.. :/
  • Same here.. But i already took it.. And its delayed.. Well, can always wait... Have the whole night
  • Lol. I updated my 830 to 9941 yesterday on fast right and checking for updates doesnt work. I just get the "already up to date" message. So I'll have to wait.
  • I get the same for my 730.
  • Same here, at&t 830. I had gone back to 8.1 a while ago so yesterday I installed 9941 again hoping to would mean a faster easier update today. But the update says no updates available.
  • I'm on fast ring, 1st build, still no update !
  • Let them work at least on their server issue!
  • You would have thought with as highly anticipated as this build release was they would make sure nothing would go wrong. You would think...
  • We were the ones who hyped up this release. We shouldn't have done that, because it's still a VERY early preview. Expectations should be low because bugs will be high.
  • Always easier said than done.
  • Oh well I guess I'll go play GTA 5 on my Xbox one to waste some time. Till problem is fixed
  • Always a problem with MS.
  • Lollipop and iOS 8 have seen far worse days. Their final releases bricked a lot of phones. MS are better with fine tuning their updates.
  • oh, now gotta do it tomorrow, Good night then.
  • what a mistake topup double data...waste 390mb....):
  • My 930 is sat here lauging at the rest of it's family who can't get the update...
  • The entire family will have the lastlaugh tomorrow ;-)
  • I guess Windows Phone has more users than even Microsoft knew about ;-)  I waited at least 5 minutes past 1pm EST to allow the other 5 users time to get started /s I hope the issues are down to a huge demand for the new platform and not poor capacity planning......
  • Or play some Heroes of the Storm! ;)
  • So ill be trying again at 10pm gmt.
  • Does anyone know of Cortana made the jump to any countries other than the US in this build (fingers crossed for Canada)
  • Glitches are bound to happen when you are going for a new process...so just relax guys...I was just thinking what the Android guys will be like....dude they are going crazy over a beta build or something...turns out they get beta builds in the form of RTM !!!
  • Just so. :D
  • I'll do it later on tonight then
  • So they didn't check their databases until this morning, the day of the rollout? Yeah, makes sense.
  • Sure does. It's quite normal to stumble into problems. Why don't you make your own OS?
  • Microsoft did it again!!!
  • Apple is usually flawless. No wonder apple is the only.company that could release updates accordingly with few issues. MS needs to work on their update game.
  • Apple has had to pull entire OS updates. They are FAR from flawless. Didn't their last major update brick a ton of phones and they had to pull it and reissue it?  
  • Yes. There updates of late have been full of issues. I have to use one for work, and after every update, there is always something that needs to be fixed. I just quit updating. Haha
  • Their ios8 version beta was also a flop.
  • This is not a normal update!!!
  • apple even has has final versions of their os bricking many iphones, so, flawless? not really
  • Lol Apple is FAR from flawless.
  • What the hell are you even doing in this comment section.
  • Ha ha... It seems others missed your joke ;-) or should I say oxymoron with Apple and flawless in same sentence :-D
  • 10:30- Phone in my hands checking for update!
    11:30-Penis in my hand.
    12:15-I came
    It's 12:18 now, I'm going off to sleep! I'll see you when I wake up tomorrow morning! Good night windowscommunity :)
  • I can already imagine both of you waking up to 'All Rise' in the morning.
  • Lol!!!! :):P:D good one mate!!!
  • And when u wake up in the morning early with and again masturbate don't come on Cortana then.
  • I seriously pray that your ordering of time is correct. A change in the first two will entirely screw up you along with your phone :-P
  • 45 mins. Good going buddy!! Did u you took alpha 1 blockers??
  • Come on guys! Let them have the positive support from users! Every tech firm has it's server errors. Apple does have this and the way Google update is frantically useless and discouraging.
    The positive side is that we are the only users that get to "test" OS before RTM.
    So show loyalty!
  • Great point!
  • Even if there are 10000 reasons to be happy about, I still whine over any tiniest issue. Seems faster, Wen in India and whining are the rights I have over other platform owners and I definitely use them always ;-)
  • Should I first hard reset my Lumia 830 for installing tp???
  • No, it'll update without reset
  • No.
  • Reset after installation in complete, it might get you a better performance.
  • Take server down and fix it...wouldnt that be faster than to fix it under load...
  • That's what theyre doing
  • i think they didn't put the servers offline when he made this comment
  • Always long for us icon owners....
  • Yeah...
    Looooong night.. :v
    It's time to sleep, in Indonesia :P
    zZzZz
  • ROFLMAO.....what a effing blunder from this company....   they are always over promising and under delivering!!!
  • ^ this
  • ^not this
  • ^ this
  • Fuck this bastard^
  • Bahi pk aae ho.
    Clarification: You drunk dude!
  • My 1020 never have me a choice for which ring. Perhaps there has to be a build available to do that?
  • You will only have a option for Slow or Fast Ring if your phone had the first build.
  • I'm glad there is a timeframe, and acknowledgement of the problem. Hopefully I can install by 5 pm EST.
  • Any L920 get it?? Posted via the WPC App for Android!
  • Waited two months. What's another two hours.
  • Sigh. That way of life.
  • This is comment of the post
  • Windows Phone 11 will fix all problems , just wait few years .
  • I'm trying to install it on my Lumia 520 & 530 in the UK and keep getting the error message
  • This update supports which type of Lumia , it doesn't mention in this article
  • Mentioned everywhere else. All except 930 icon and 640XL
  • Any additional increase of supported Lumia's ,
  • Well at least Gabe and his team didn't blame the end user like a certain fruit named company would do/has done. Lol.
  • Poor Blackberry?
  • Cant find the update for my 1520
  • I'm retired
  • At least they give out info. Kudos to Microsoft!
  • Oh well, going to play Halo MCC.
  • What is the one song you would like to dedicate to MS at this point of time? Expressing what you feeling ;)
  • "I won't give up on us /
    Even if the skies get rough"
  • I'd rather this happen now than when W10 releases.
  • My Lumia 1020 is ready and waiting :D
  • Its time to drink more beer in finnish.
  • You mean in "Finland" or are you drinking beer in finnish language? :'D Torilla tavataan?
  • Too much beer:)

  • You from Pakistan? Bhai me bhi! Oo balley balley!
    Update na hone ka balley balley ni kar raha.
  • Haha....
    Dekhe achha laga ^.^
  • Haha. Aaj toh raat bhar jaagna padega hi padega...
  • Pehle se hi pata tha aiysa kuch hoga.....

  • Coffee tou mujhe bhi pasand hai lekin aesse mouke me chai theek rahe gi.
  • Hahaha sahi hai....

  • Mine is second time.
    Mera matlab,meri ye doosri bar hai.
  • Bhai musalman hoon par India se
  • Me musalman houn ,Pakistan se.
    India me sab kuch kesa hai?
  • Better wait till Microsoft put all this sh*t together
  • Lumia 521 seems unlucky.
  • At least, Daniel writes a sarcastic article with lots of puns to ease the pain.
  • They release a preview on week end, and now they are working on the issue to make it available. Feel sorry for them
  • ^^^ this. Hehe been there, done that.
  • Hopeless.
  • finally the Preview will release with the final version of W(P)10. Clever, Microsoft, clever... ^^ :P
     
  • Love the new icons in the notification update. Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Good time to post that MS employee Partition Stitching video or too soon?
  • My L830 has the 9941 update and is on fast ring. The "Update" says my phone is updated and the "Insider" doesn't work.....
     
  • Same here
  • U need to roll back to 8.1 first and then reinstall windows 10
  • Windows Insider app crashes and crashed IDK if it is related to this problem.
  • So slow and so clumsy development of the operating system deserves an Oscar.
  • the development of 8.x probably whent the same way, only internal instead of out in public
  • Just join Microsoft and help us get a brand new OS in less than an year please ;-)
  • They can not afford it. :)
  • Inthat case, an Oscar can be lot cheaper ;-)
  • The shit about it is that you can't disable data connection :|
  • Yes... :/
  • Keep calm buddy you're using windows something better is always there si stop cribbing about different things
  • In the mean time...Apple already sells 1 million watches!!!
  • Wow... Why Apple is concerned about time delay in a tech preview release such that it sells watches for people to track the time delay???
  • Is this why the update is failing to even appear on my 830?
  • UPDATE My 1520 just started working and receiving the update....this is my first time doing the insider build
  • USA Maryland
  • Tell me about Data connection issue.. I never uses Data connection.. So turning it off is not an issue... What I'm worried is that will it be turned ON automatically?
  • Still installing, and I have no data/sim only using Wi-Fi.
  • When in India!?
  • Only when you stop such comments.
  • It should be Wen in India... Learn English first :-P
  • Your so funny... Should I laugh? Ha ha ha... Is that enough loser?
  • no matter how the window is always good
  • Why is everyone so mad about a stupid slight delay when the much bigger problem is that they've cut office from the build and that won't be fixed for weeks, if not a month. All the other stuff, they're small bugs bit this is a major feature that makes the build useless for a lot of people and, frankly, a deal breaker.
  • Well, it's just a preview, who cares if office isn't on it? Assuming you're not using a daily driver, it is what it is.
  • Does it have to be updated with Wi-Fi ?
    3G connection won't do this?
  • Wifi is a must have
  • It's about 430 M update it's not tiny
  • And what's wrong with 3G
    I got 5GB lol
  • In my profile I have my timezone set to CEST (GMT+1). Why is the Article still showing EDT? I dont want to convert the time to know, when the 2 hours are over :(
  • You know there is something called the internet, go on it and Bing it.
  • I...updating w10 to N3310 ...
  • I just think it's pretty cool they are opening this up to the public. Kudos to MS for giving us this opportunity.
  • Am moving to my bedroom. GD nyt Microsoft !
  • I am moving Next to server with a usb cable
  • Got a spare cable???
  • My AT&T branded1520 is getting the update. I'm currently in Qatar.. My L920 is still getting the Server error
  • I'm rolling back to wp7 mangooo!
  • What about transparent tiles.. Joe Belfiore promised a while ago.. Right? Didnt see it in the change log.. :-/
  • Maybe its there but not mentioned in the log... You need to keep calm bro
  • Fuck. Microsoft messes up every time!
  • Waiting ... On my L720 ....
  • Same here buddy
  • 928 still waiting
  • Apparently it's "coming soon" and when it does it's all good cause it'll "seems faster", except no one can answer the ultimate question of "when India"? :)
  • Lmao
  • Can't wait to get home and update my HTC tilt 2 to windows 10.
  • Suffice to say I'm not going anywhere as I just got a Lumia 930 earlier this week! To that end I still can't grab the new WP10 preview so no big deal for me. I do have a Lumia 635 and Lumai 920 that I'm trying to install the update on. The 635 is installing an update right now though I'm not sure if it is the new preview or an update to the previous preview. I'm guessing it's the new preview. My 920 is sitting waiting for MS to fix the servers and my 930 is happy as a clam. Now, if only T-Mobile would let me have WiFi calling on my 930. I know it's part OS and part carrier. If it weren't for text messaging I'd just give everyone my Skype number and use that instead.
  • Kamine machar sone bhi nahi de rahe. Update ki pehle hi waat lagi hovi hai.
  • Hahaaa... Can't LOL, gharwaale jag jaayenge...
  • Microsoft wale bol rahe houn ge : "Mouka Mouka,Mouka Mouka"
    Lol
  • So, a perfect article to ask "Wen in India?" :-P
  • Anybody knows what's the size of update??
  • It's 450 mb ...., (according to a well known source)
  • Source that can't be named?.. Are you talking about Voldemort? :p
  • Lol
  • A well known source called Windows Central . . . I guess. :D
  • If there is anyone who want to try this build and don't dare to do because of the Data disable issue.. I have a work around.. Just go to accesspoint settings and change port number.. You wont be connected to Data and you can correct it when you wanna use.. Or if there is someone who never uses Data and worried of switching it ON and not able to cancel it..well , just delete your accesspoint setting.. Job done.. No more data... After the next build save settings from your operator.. ;)
  • Battery drain may be there... But Data will be saved.. I never uses Data.. Always in wifi.. So deleting the accesspoint is the best workaround for me :)
  • This shows us clearly why Microsoft always fail in mobile arena.
  • What?.. Having bugs on Alpha version of OS? .. "Seems faster" loosers ..
  • And notice , his name is Ultimate Insider lol. MS doesn't need insiders like you lol
  • Good catch.
  • 1 hour and 23 minuts from release to full installed

  • Oh hey, my 925 got through, 1520 isn't getting any luck though  
  • Has anyone gotten this to install on the 920? I got past the initial loading screen on my 1520, but I don't want to install it on that just yet. It's failing on my 920 with the same server error. Might the fact that I don't have the sim card install have something to do with the error?
  • actually, never mind, just got it past loading on my 920.
  • Still server error...
  • any updates on this issue? I'll be on my Moto Razr until this is fixed.
  • Fixed
