Next build for Windows 10 for Phone due this Friday, Lumia 930 and Icon excluded

Microsoft's Gabe Aul just dropped the news that the next build of the Windows 10 Preview for Windows Phone is due this Friday at 10 am PT (1 pm ET).

The news was announced on the Windows Weekly podcast, which is currently being broadcast on TWiT.

That is the good news. The bad news is both the Lumia Icon and Lumia 930 will not be a part of this update round due to a bug with device scaling. Of course, this will be addressed likely for the next-next build, but not for this one.

Microsoft posted a few weeks ago the list of Lumias that will be included with the next build of Windows 10 Preview and the rest of that list is still intact for Friday. You can see that list here of eligible Lumias.

Microsoft will post a blog post later this week detailing all the changes with this build, which include some changes requested by users.

  • Cool
  • What a bday gift for me from Microsoft :P last year also I got a pleasant surprise from them. I remember windows phone 8.1 PFD was released on 14th Apr ( if m not wrong).
  • Happy birthday in advance!
  • Nice, someone keeps a release log. Lol.
  • Happy birthday to you in advance. :-)
  • Yes, an early happy birthday then ;-)
  • Yes, you're right..
  • Many many happy returns of the day dear
  • Only took 10 months for my phone to receive the update and there's still many waiting. Microsoft needs to find a better path or option for upgrading.
  • Preview for Developers. It's not Beta software. It's the software you get from carriers. That's the way of upgrading quicker
  • Happy birthday :)
  • I hope it's got much more things than what was leaked -.-
  • Yes... this build really needs to be a lot further along. The first build was pretty awful and almost completely unusable in so many ways. I need to see that the change to W10 won't be harmful to the OS... I'm really happy with where it is in WP8.1, I don't want to see a lot of speed issues and nonsense happening when I upgrade.
  • Then don't use the TP program and wait for the official release
  • Then get off the tech preview you moron -_-
  • I use TP on a 630 every day since release, and its far from unusable. Sure its gui is messed up a bit in some sections and it has bugs, but nothing critical. Everything it functional to a normal use. I daily use fb, 6tag, ie, twitter, camera, phone, wapp, onedrive etc and nothing avoided me to use them as I was used to do on wp8.1. Just some few crashes. The device instead never crashed, only slows down after 2/3 days but reboot turns the things as usual. Increased battery drain. In my opinion it's really stable for being a preview/beta, far more stable than some final android roms for sure, those are really unusable avoiding me in some cases to make a simple phone call.
  • Yeah, m using it on my 630. Never faces any major problem. Everything is working fine except some small bugs.
  • And why are you using the Tech Preview?  
  • Interesting... there seem to be a lot of comments responding to things I didn't even say. For the rude idiots, I have the TP on my Lumia 635, which is not my primary phone. I also have a 1520, 1020, 920, 820, 620, and 520 available to me. The 1520 is my current primary. Is that ok with you guys that I am testing the TP on a secondary phone? Gee thanks. To Woooooa, the only response that was intelligent, I didn't say that it crashes or is unstable. I said I find it to be unusable in many ways. Quite a big difference. I especially have major issues with the Photos app, which seems truly useless. Speed is bad, user interface is very obviously rough... so many of the features I rely on are simply not there yet. Nor would I have expected them to be in the first release. However, what I was hoping for was that we would see more frequent updates, and we would start to see the interface evolve to be closer to where it currently is with WP8.1 (and hopefully better in many ways). Instead, we have seen zero updates. This is certainly not portending doom or anything, but it's also not what I was hoping would happen. Hence my comment that I hope this version has advanced a fair amount towards a more stable and usable system.
  • Then quit TP...i don't know why half the idiots here don't understand that builds aren't going to be good enough for regular use until they are close to RTM...provide feedback but don't get all judgemental abt a half baked OS...
  • Did you even read my comment posts? Why should I quit the TP?  As I have said, I am testing it on a secondary phone.  I'm not sure why you boys are so sensitive... I have not said it is crap, or crashes, or that it's going to suck, or that I expect it to be bug free at this point.  I voiced what I am hoping for in the next build.  Good grief.
  • You're asking for release candidate quality software from a second, very early alpha release. Your expectations are unrealistic. That is what people are trying to say.
  • Yes, these people are very sensitive. It's normal that it's crashing. Thanks to your advice, I'll install it on my 530 first and if it works the way I need it, I'll update my 1020
  • And i just got an icon days ago!
  • Sorry dude, we chose poorly. Nobody cares about the Icon. Remember that sweet Cyan update last May? Yeah, that was timely...
  • It would be great if you guys start describing time in GMT ...
  • Yep, I too am fed up with PT and ET
  • +920 please include gmt time
  • That would be 5 PM GMT if I'm not mistaken.
  • Correct.
  • i am fed up with petty complaints ...   This is an American site ... this is news coming out of America ... news is from an American podcast ... about an American company ... why would it not be reported using local time?  sorry that American time offends you and you have to look up time conversion #sorrynotsorry
  • Shut. Up. Asshole.
  • angry people :)
  • I'd agree except that most of the market share for Windows Phone is out of the US :( What you need is a javascript widget that will take GMT or UT and return the user's local time. Anyhow, PT is -8 hrs..eeectept that we do daylight savings time, so.. again, it's better to use a date widget. https://countingdownto.com/countdown/next-windows-phone-10-build-10-apri...  
  • Thanks for the link, although I would only use it on vacation. I have also wondered, the U.S. has less market share, but more people as a whole, so it still could be a good amount right? Say as many as a small country with decent percent of people using WP? Honest question.
  • 10% of America=30000000 30% of UK=18000000
  • The thing about a JavaScript solution is that it won't do anything in the apps. Better the writers use Project Spartan and have Cortana do time conversions in their address bar while they write. We don't need lots of time zones, only one: GMT.
  • I'm pretty much sure it has got more than half of it's readers from other countries.
  • Just a heads up for you. Windows Phone is a global platform; one that is succeeding to a far greater extent in pretty much every place BUT America!
    This website also has editors spread across a whole range of time zones.
    Like it or not though...the world's time revolves around GMT. So rather than stick to some silly notion of east/west coast time, let's just stick to a timing standard that the whole world understands!
  • Wordl-wide standards, not exactly the American way...
  • Excuse me, the last time i checked it was a international site for a international community.
    So yes its quite common to use a international time standard like gmt.
  • Be careful! An American posting on an American site about a product from an American company with a valid point is a bad thing and people from other countries that dont get their local time will have a fit. I think Windows Central should post times in all 24 time zones. That way no one has to Bing time conversions.
  • Every one who has ever installed any OS would have known GMT and their time zone related to GMT. So posting the time in GMT would suffice. It is a constructive feedback and if you have anything more to add please feel free to. Not like the one you posted.
  • America.....
  • 'Murica ;)
  • Wow!!! American site!!! Guess articles about 640 and 640XL released in India, Thailand, etc are pretty out of place...
  • Nothing is made in America.
  • Because it has a very large (possibly majority) international readership who is not accustomed to converting from PT or ET. However most people in the world who care know how many hours they are from GMT and can make that conversion in an instant. When Bing will convert time zones for you it's trivial for writers to give a GMT conversion when they write a new post, rather than require a large number of people to do it themselves often when they're on the go.
  • Except that the news given is international and not just local to America...
  • If that is ur take on time conversions...then id suggest we stop using American products...chutiya sala
  • very good reply , eterna!!!! I live in Greece, but making a simple time conversion in my head is far easier and preferable to bitching and moaning like a butthurt idiot on the forums...
  • I love that way of thinking. So deep so wide!!!!
  • http://tinyurl.com/nkb5b7y Now that you know how, next time you can save yourself the trouble of complaining about an American site listing American time zones in their articles.
  • North America... just to let you know that America is a continent that im part of, just because your country uses it as part of the name doesn't mean you have to use it for everything... NORTH AMERICA ok? ;) Sincerely from an south american who can still call himself american, have a good night.
  • This will be my last reply to this comment thread because it is wildly off topic, but it is widely accepted that 'American' is the demonym of people from the US.
  • Ok Joe, just don't count me in that "wide" bunch of people. US would be shorter and... Not bad... Ok no, just take the name of the continent since it sounds... Bad. Feliz noche.
  • On the topic, I still want to try w10 and its little new features, that way to send messages from notification seems good, hopefully not only for texting but for apps...
  • Colloquial use suggests otherwise. America generally means USA.
  • Same here. GMT is more universal. everyone can calculate their time frome it without having to search for the meaning of ET/PT
  • Therefore by the end of the week I'll get W10 on my old nl 620?! Cool!
  • My lumia 920 is still pending win 10 old build. What will happen once new build comes out?? Will my phone brick?? Will it get its right version??
  • Sweet!
  • Yes it is. What does this mean for Windows insiders running the Windows 10 TP on the PC. Will we be able to finally run apps on the phone and PC from the UAP?
  • I'm ready
  • noooooooooooo! of course the icon isn't included
  • No point in using Windows 10 as a daily driver. Folks are gonna cry about heating, freezing and all very soon. It's just the initial hype.
  • No worries... This is exactly what the 8.1update/beta does to my beloved 1020 now........
  • Exactly. 8.1 has the be the buggiest RTM... I was actually trying to go back to 8.0 for a while because of how sluggish it currently is. Even after a reset.
  • Yes! Ever since 8.1 dropped, my 1020 has been painfully buggy and laggy. I have been anticipating the Windows10 preview just to see if it improves. Cant be much worse than what is currently going on with my phone.
  • Ya my 1020 used to be super fast. But after 8.1 it became slow and buggy... Hope this TP would be good
  • Hahaha. Same here!
  • Fuck yeah! We've been waiting since months now!
  • Basically. I plan to change back to my HTC One M7 after installing the WP10 TP
  • Freezing and heating? My Lumia never gets cold.
  • Ditto
  • That is what we like to hear!
  • ⌒.⌒ uuhoooo!
  • My poor 930!! Give us even a sniff of GDR2 then lol
  • Gonna test on my old 920 first. Save the gorgeous 930 for the glorious day.
  • Same here. :D
  • Same for me!!!
  • Yup except I'll be testing my 1020 and saving my 930. Lol Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Exactly! Gonna test it on my spare 520...
  • +1850
  • Ditto, going to use my 920 to test drive W10!
  • Gonna just go for it. Can't be worse than gdr1
  • If the 520 is ever supported in the TP, I'll load Windows 10 on my 520 and not risk putting 10 on my 930 until it's ready for public release :) The potential risks to phones when 10 TP is installed on them are too great for me to take as a Uni student with a flagship device.
  • Horse shit!
  • Interesting....
  • Lol
  • Horse shit isn't included in the update, Call Lumia help to get it delivered at your house.
  • You sir have won the internet of the day award! LOL❕❕❕
  • Ah, my eyes! Da faq did I just read?
  • Ah, manure... makes the roses smell so sweet.
  • I simply can say that I don't want to give up on this platform. From the days of WP7 to here, all I've experienced is WAIT. Will Windows 10 solve it? I think YES.
  • Amen brother.
  • Amen
  • I'm with you on that. My very first smartphone was the LG Quantum, and is to this date still one of my favorite phones ever, but WP7 was lacking. I've stuck with them this long, and I don't think I could abandon Windows Phone even if I tried, but Windows 10 is shaping up to be what I had hoped to get with WP7.
  • How? We're still going to be missing key apps and services the other os'es have. I can't see Windows 10 somehow miraculously fixing that, at least not for some time.
    It'll still be a waiting game. Waiting for all devices to get Windows 10, waiting for new devices running 10, waiting on devs and companies waiting to see how it's adopted before 'green lighting' their apps
    I've been with the os since day 1, but I'm also a realist. Don't believe everything will suddenly change for the better because of an os update. I would like to be proved wrong, but I doubt I will.
  • If the os is half as good as they believe it to be and the (tech) media will promote it the big apps and developers will come. Besides that and correct me if I'm wrong windows 10 apps are going to be cross platform apps.
  • The only problem with that is most media, bloggers and tech journalists are bought out by Apple.
  • Yes cross platform, but do you really think a desktop app will also work on phone and tablet without some tweaking and ui changes?
  • No but I intend to be positive. I think they are on a good path. Being innovative, really listening to your consumers feedback and creating a new brand/lifestyle (a Apple kind of way but different is the way to go)
  • I agree, but a lot of other people seem to think it'll be a quick miracle fix.
    I hope it takes off and we finally get all the app and services support to go along with a great os. I just can't see it happening with such a low market share and all Microsoft services and apps (quite rightly) being available elsewhere.
  • windows 8.1 RT was a bit different from windows 8 yet most apps in the store supports ARM and Intel processors and a funny thing some games i downloaded from the store on my 1520  looks better than the ones on RT for example games like sonic dash
  • Who is talking about the desktop? Lol...
  • Quite a few of us, covering the wider reach of the os if you bothered to read what has been wrote and discussed before.
    Maybe you should read everything we've been discussing before you try and act clever and comment with a 'lol'
    You'll not come across as such a douche next time.
  • Developers can already make unified apps  with windows 8.1/windows phone 8.1. That hasn't magically made the platforms explode with the big boy apps.  It's a bit disingeneous by everyone involved (fans, MS, journalists, etc) to insinuate the universal app feature in Windows 10 is going to be a strong driver for improving app selection. Now, I'm not sure anyone who's been using the Windows 10 tech preview could argue against the simple fact that they've gone backwards a lot on the tablet side of the OS. Admittedly, Microsoft has said they want us all to focus on the desktop side, so maybe there's a whole tablet UI that's missing completely (best case scenario), but if there isn't, it's hard not to be cynical and think Microsoft is overreacting to the /wristing over the metro UI by select people, and essentially turning Windows back into a desktop OS without the tablet side, because being able to choose between the two was apparently too confusing for the average tech journalist who spent the past few years blasting Windows 8/8.1 as if one couldn't choose to operate only in desktop mode.  If so, that's hardly going to drive developers to make tablet/phone friendly apps in Windows 10. 
  • They say it will get better, and it will. Just that.
  • You won't be proved wrong. You are spot on. The ONLY realistic way out of this mess is Android app support, and that's not a particularly elegant solution. Another, "fantastical" way out would be to open the platform up and pray the hacker community fixes it up (this worked wonders for WebOS). I'm not sure why they insist on walling up Windows Phone. That's Apple's MO. I'd say this game is over. If there were something, anything, in Windows 10 that put it ahead of the competition, that'd be one thing, but it doesn't look like it'll even come close to closing the gap with Android (and not just apps, but basic OS features).
  • Nahh, Android apps won't fix a thing (why not just get an Android device?). Allowing for native Java development and creating similar APIs to Android could help, as well as further supporting / improving things like Xamarin. It wouldn't hurt if MS made some exclusive content either (personally, I'd only create high end games for the flagship Windows devices to showcase their capabilities if I were them).
  • If Microsoft won't even try to drive users to Windows Phone via the best in-house experience (office, etc) being on Windows Phone, then why in the world would any other company have any confidence in investing in developing for the system? I get that it makes financial sense (at least in the short term) for Microsoft to chase the customers, but neither Apple or Google got their mobile share by giving their competitors the best software experience. 
  • Missing apps wont fix with an OS update. Idk what will fix that but introducing a flagship is important. Make a surface phone.
  • Sadly, my flagship was was just EOL'd... With no upgrade path in sight... Forever 1520
  • I don't think you know what EOL means. It'll still receive updates.
  • Or what upgrade path means either. I'm pretty sure nothing is stopping him from buying another phone after the 1520.
  • 1520 wasn't a proper flagship. It is way too big to carry that title, and it was AT&T only (in the US at least). To be a flagship, I'd say you've got to be main stream, high end, and available on many carries. 1520 met only one of those criteria. So far, only HTC has delivered ANY flagship Windows Phones in the US. Nokia/Microsoft could never get it done.
  • Its hard don't give up. My last chance to this platform will be Win10.
  • I'll support Windows til the end. But there will be no end to it ;)
  • Wait for what? A technical preview that you would not get on any other mobile OS?
  • No Redstone will fix it
  • +1720
  • My 520 is ready.
  • +520
  • +520 XL
  • +620
  • +520
  • 520 :D
  • Convert into Indian timing plz..!!
  • +12.5 hr
  • Pretty late in the night. Just download it the next morning?
  • You can do that with Bing, what makes you think only India that is so goddamn important?
  • Largest market for Windows phone and he is from India
  • Largest market share with most of them using low end devices and whining about paid apps and flagship features. No offense to other Indian users though.
  • Isn't that the case worldwide..?
  • I own L1520 and I buy apps, there are lot of guys like me here..
  • I purchase apps too
  • I'm sorry if I have offended you. I didn't say all.. But most of them.. You can find them easily in the forums, app review articles or even the WP store reviews
  • Even all Americans don't buy apps!!?
  • Lol.
  • If you bought a phone new for retail price at less than $200 you arent an american. 
  • Though you sure they are all Indians..?
  • "largest market for Windows phone"
    Nope
  • 1st, 2nd or 3rd. But it is.
  • India may be the largest market for Windows, yet there's no regional website like Windows Central here. Why do you think that is?
  • Europe and Brasil have a bigger share than US of A, but still....Why..?
    Cause the parent site MN is US based and most of those writers are US based too.
  • No. I'm pretty sure the US is still the biggest WP market.
  • I'd argue the same. Maybe not by percentage but by total # of users
  • Stats are against you.
  • Yeah. Only takes one minute to convert.
  • What's with all the hostility mate? Just calm down and try having a nice civil conversation (or whatever you'd like to call it)
  • Cause he wants it for himself. He's selfish.
  • Lol, just look at what all conclusions you people are bringing up out of my question..
  • JK Bro.
  • Whoa! Chill bro. That timing was not in IST, so just wanted to know at what time should I be expecting the update in India..
  • Download the World Clock stop on Windows Phone, it's pretty handy... ;)
  • I'm confused which cities are Pacific Time or Eastern Time for reference
  • Not sure, but I'd go with the ones near the Pacific Ocean being on Pacific Time and those on the east coast on Eastern Time. Just a hunch. I've always found timeanddate.com a useful place for timezone conversions.
  • That's so convoluted, vs the writers helping us out with a simple GMT reference that most of us can convert from in our heads.
  • Lol, will do that now..!
  • 10.30 pm in India
  • 10:30pm ist
  • Why, ask that clearly, " When in India?"
  • Can i download the update by 3G?
  • Itna toh tera internet pack he nahi hoga. Wi-Fi se kar lio na.
  • Ah, you should have asked When in India?
  • PST = GMT -8hrs
  • 1030pm
  • Yeeeeesssssss!!!!!
  • Wonderful! Can't wait to test it on my Lumia 920!
  • Me too! At this point, I'm not even bothered about the likelihood of app failures and crashes - I just really want to see this thing in action, and right now I'm not even using that many apps anyway (music, browser, and that's about it).
  • Having heating problems with my 920, any idea how to resolve this?
  • Well I guess it's time to pull out the old fatty 920. At least I'll be able to play without having to sacrifice my One.
  • Same here since my 930 will have to wait :/
  • Yep, time to recharge my 920!
  • Haha, everyone is like, "time to get out the old 920," and I'm over here still using my 925 daily. I just want a Microsoft high end on t-mobile, and then I'll upgrade.
  • Time to use my 925 for windows 10 :P my 930 is working great anyway
  • Yep, exactly! Though I may settle with a 640 if I like where Windows on mobile is headed. Good price point for the features, and I'm realizing that I don't need to spend many hundreds of dollars on a phone these days.
  • It's weird to see Lumia Icon and 930 with display scalling bug since many people got to install it using that unnoficial method and worked like a charm.
  • Conspiracy
  • They don't want their flagship to prosper.
  • Lumia 1520 is in the list of those having the preview :)
  • Just replying to see if people tried it and it still works properly
  • My X20s are ready.
  • Lol.
  • Whaaaaaaaaaaat can u just repeat again what did u say ? On this Friday or .......
  • 930 wasn't included in list b4 anyway. Thought it strange the icon was. Now neither of them. That's fine though, I don't think I'd try it on my 930 anyway. Have fun everyone who tries it!
  • finally :)
  • Wohooooi!!!;
    920 baby!!!!
  • 10AM PT = 1PM ET
  • YAY!!!
  • Big question ...i have w10 on my 930. (hack trick). Do someone know if my phone will see the update ?? Anddd if yes .. Should i install it ?
  • Yes ofcourse you can and you should :D
  • I believe there was this update that came daya after the first W10 build for phones in wich causa to the phones who updates in the hack way to not receive any updates or something like that. Better recommendation is to roll back and update forward the good way when the update came out for your 930
  • Yes they block the trick to install w10. But if the server look if i have w10 already before sending the update, they will see w10. Anyway if i have the update i'll do it. I can flash it if i have problem.
  • All rait then :) hope the update works out for you
  • Nope, that was to not letting the new people to install the first preview.
    Those who installed the preview will get the updates.
    (but based on which way u chose for hacking the phone it may be different)
  • If it's still hacked to some other device's name\number.
  • No i hard reset the phone after. To Be sure to dont received wrong update.
  • My aging 920 may not be able to handle all of the excitement. 
  • If all the low end devices will. Our beloved 920 will have a walk in the park with it
  • Sometimes I feel my 635 feels faster than my 920..
  • Your beloved 920 can run it smoothly and same could be said for my 720 probably.
  • Thanks
  • Hooray!!!
  • Good way to end the week!
  • L620 :)
  • Hooray for us with L620!!! Almost no one talks about this phone, but it's a damn good small phone! For me, there's no 6xx series (except for 640) that's better than this. Hope it'll deal well with W10...
  • I talk about 620 for sure. Just sold one a week ago.
  • Pity you :(
  • JK. It is the most handsome Lumia according to me.
  • As u said no one talks about this phone...its coz no one actually know about the class of this one. Its a giant inside & small outside :) We shouldnt be comparing it with 640 coz its now in hands of MS ...
  • I rememeber feeling kind of stupid for spending that much money on my 920 when I tried the 620 for the first time. The dual color housing was amazing and better looking than 920's almost 80% of the functions (haac mic, impressive camera...) for a third of the price. I hope Microsoft could use the dual color housing in the future 
  • +620 Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Dude its great little phone specially with glance and clear black display
  • Only ram problem in my Lumia 620 otherwise my Lumia 620 is the best.
    I wait Friday. Windows 10 finally comes to my Lumia 620. Yaaa
  • +620 awesome phone, running good for 3 years, on the latest version of Windows, can't day the same goes tons of crappy androids released the same year.
  • I'm ready
  • Letting enthusiasts last (930 and Icon users) seems to be the right choice /s   Actually who cares...
  • If you're an enthusiast, you have more than just those phones...I want to know when the Non-Lumia devices will be eligible. =P
  • Yeh, just sold icon and got 822 at 50! Perfect for TP. Waiting for real flagship!
  • My old daily driver Lumia 920 is ready to try Windows 10  My current daily driver Lumia 830 is ready for Denim! Any freakin day now AT&T!!!!
  • I have installed the windows 10 on my 830 and it worked like a charm. I use this phone everyday and i cant say that im a happy tech preview user on 830
  • My 830 is brand new and for now I just want full Denim on it. I think Denim is required for the Win 10 Insider Preview anyway is it not? Anyway I have my backup 920 sitting around to do some Windows 10 testing. Finally I can contribute to the cause.
  • No Denim is not required for Windows 10 installation.
  • I probably shouldn't... But I may try this on my 1520
  • I will put it on my 1520 if it seems stable enough on my 920. So excited now! And then there's only Win10 for Xbox One, and ALL our phones, tablets, PCs and eligible consoles are running Win10. Only non Win10 devices would be our 360's xD haha
  • Same here
  • I'm going to wait a few hours and see how much crying and whining is happening on the forums, and then decide.
  • Good for my 1520, bad for my 930's.
  • Hell, with as much time that has passed between the last release in early Feb and this one, they should have been able to squash most of the initial bugs. Lol.
  • This^^
  • Finally! Yay!
  • Cool. My 920 can have W10 so I can keep my 930 safe.
  • I will be damned if Microsoft won't say like they did for the poor HTC, that due to some architectural design they can't update Icon and 930.
  • Im exited. Pehaps i hope it is stable and most of the feedback provided has veen worked on. Windows rules!!!
  • Finally a date !!!
  • No 930??????????? It s a shame....
  • Will install on my old, yet still reliable Lumia 920! I might be tempted to install on my 1520 (daily driver), but I have an event to go to and would hate to start having issues during this event.
  • I am in the same boat. Wil ldefinitely install on my old 920. I want to instal w10 on my 1520 because it might allow me to use my bluetooth again with my 1520 but I NEED the camera on the 1520 to work. So I am not sure if I should put it on my 1520.
  • Same concern. Going to Boston this weekend for the first time and ill need my phone working (mainly camera, and good battery life). Wondering if I should wait until Monday to install this on my 1520
  • Waiting for from Dominican republic
  • En eso estamos mi hermano!! Mangú Power con sabor a Windows 10
  • Español en Windows Central!!! Saludos a los latinos que siempre andamos por acá
  • Hope this is more stable! Waiting...
  • Hope this time the Lumia 925 will among those devices which will receive this update.
  • They already confirmed it will.
  • So no HTC One? ;(
  • And no HTC 8x :'(
  • That's what I call Friday!
  • Hamburgers for everybody!
  • Haha! :D
  • Lol!
  • Hahax
  • Definitely will try this out on my old 920 to test.  If good, I'll load it on my 1520.
  • How could they include the Icon in their list last month, and now say that it wont work? Wtf? This really pissed me off.
  • They did have a disclaimer that devices might get added or removed.
  • Yaaaayyyy :')
  • Have readied my good ol' 720 just for this day. Come on now, get inside.
  • At least I can try it on my second device the Lumia 925, my 930 can wait :)
  • If WC reports the "Photos" to be updated and better from the previous build, my 1520 will have Windows 10 by Friday night.
  • Yuss!! I'm definitely excited can't wait to bring it to my 1520
  • High end Lumia 930/Icon isn't supported. Of course.
  • More succinctly, the only high end phone released in the entire year
  • Nor the High end HTC M8 One.. >.<
  • Is 735 included in the list
  • Yes it is
  • Yes! At long last-- my 830 is definitely ready, I hope it fixes the iffy buttons in Settings.
  • So tempting.
  • Yeah babe :)
  • Another good reason to wait for Friday.
  • The day the Galaxy S6 shows up in at&t stores. Lots of the first Windows 8 Lumia devices are coming due for upgrade. No Windows flagship device in sight. Will there be some thing in Windows 10 that keeps people from jumping ship? I'm about to say goodbye to my 1020 and hello to Galaxy bit will install Windows 10 on Friday. Maybe I will find some reason to stick around.
  • You can answer your own question. If you are loyal to the WP platform and willing to wait until the new flagships are (hopefully) announced later this summer when Windows 10 is released then wait it out. The Galaxy S6 would be cheaper by then if you're unhappy with Windows 10 and the flagship offering. If you feel that the WP platform is not heading in the direction you want then jump ship now. 
  • "Hopefully" is the problem.  :-(
  • Microsoft confirmed a flagship later this year, so hopefully would be incorrect
  • Yeah well they called the 830 an affordable "flagship" which it wasn't, and promised Denim to everyone by end of Feb and that didn't happen, so until we see some game changing flagship specs announced we'll see. And if it's just another phone that bumps up some specs while leaving other cool stuff like wireless charging and Glance behind, then I will not acknowledge it as a true WP flagship for 2015-16! 
  • Your comment is more than fair.
  • Fuck off
  • HTC One M8 for Windows is a flagship I'd argue. Technically old but it beats the M9 in almost every way
  • If you feel like you'd get more out of Android, then there is no reason to torture yourself out of loyalty or anything. I'm not a heavy user, so my 925 and Jolla are likely to last a long time still, but you, naturally, need to decide for yourself. Use whatever fits your needs, you can always switch back if things start looking more appealing.
  • +920
    Yeah :D
  • Is that Mufasa on your profile picture?
  • Nope. Just abstract Lion. Bing it, bro! :D
  • Lol! Ok thanks.
  • Finally...!!!
  • Wonder if this update will still be laggy. Saw a demo of it on the L830 at my local MS Store and it was laggy as hell. I'm on the L1530 so I'd hope that's not the case.
  • 1530? Spill the beans about this mysterious device! ;)
  • I am gonna try this on Lumia 520.. Hope It doesn't have that many bugs as it had on the Lumia 730..!! And also hope that Bugs on L730 are fixed as well..
    Fingers Crossed :)
  • Is black Friday for orthodox!
  • Or Good Friday, even.
  • My 920 is excited for this, and so am I.
  • I'm wondering if it'll be worth it yet. Current build has less than 8.1 does lol
  • 640xl is included ?
  • Nice ques bro.. But i think it should be..!! :)
  • In last list i saw only 640 .... My 640xl is waiting for 10m. .... But its 10 ready so ....
  • Can't wait and can wait for W10 for my Lumia 1520. I'm so excited
  • 11am for me. I'm so excited! - 1520 - Mountain Time
  • Aww, a day before I go to the Dominican. I guess I should probably wait until I get back to put on my 1020.
  • Good
  • Disappointing about the 930 but at least I have my 810
  • Looks like I'll be giving it a go on Friday:-)
  • I think that it's unbelievable! How many people work at Microsoft? I think they are only two people .. More than 30 days since the last update and the 930 isn't ready to receive the Win10? Meanwhile, Siri is now avalilable in Brazilian Portuguese... Too slow MSF! 
  • They give the update to most phones and you complain about 930? lol pathetic people all over... this is not RTM is a preview anyway. get a new phone if you want to run the preview... oh yeah you are brazilian, that's why you are complaining, brazilian idiots all over the place on internet. on mmorpgs, on forums, on articles... but still writing their stupid "huehuehue"
  • Oh ! Have a nice day you too!
  • Spoken like someone who is neither a developer or engineer.
  • You're right! I'm not! But there are a LOT of engineers and devs at MSF. If you guys think the things are OK (they are far better now, of course, but the mobile world is faster than this), good for you. 
  • Want it on your terms? Go build an OS yourself.
  • Things here are really bad... Apple users were worst,but now I'm thinking different..
  • What about on Android? I have had several Android phones that never saw an update in the entire time I had them.  
  • I think it's unbelievable Microsoft is being this open with the development of an unreleased OS to not just programmers/developers, but anyone who is interested. But, no matter how open you are there's always someone who will find something to be disgruntled over. It's an unreleased OS, I wouldn't even consider it a beta. Manage your expectations.   Microsoft has been making all the right decisions lately, I am genuinely excited with the direction they are going.
  • ^This!
  • Yeah ..keep telling yourself that.."we should happy Microsoft let us use pre iew"...they failed to deliver 5 years ago ...the whole WP os feels like a preview ..it was never perfect or close to be usefull ...they still working on an OS to beat android and IOS ...
  • Hope my L525 doesn't suicide if implant the heavy 10 on him
  • What time in Pakistan guys ????
  • 10 or 9.30 in the night I guess. Don't know the exact GMT offset for Pakistan
  • My icon is weeping right now. 
  • Hey 530... get ready
  • Lumia 520? Was it supposed to be 1520 or 520?
  • I'm ok with the Icon not included. Hopefully it will be available on the next update with even more features and less bugs.
  • Sweet, can't wait
  • Even can't wait for leaks...... Which are obviously going to be in between two days! ♡.♡
  • What the time for europe?
  • Hey ajan. It is 7 in the avond
  • Oke thx
  • Daniel, The Microsoft list includes the icon but not the 930??? Please clarify
  • Clarification: Lumia Icon and Lumia 930 are NOT getting the update this Friday.
  • "Device scaling", "partition stitching" - I'm learning a whole new vocabulary :)
  • 1pm ET 5pm GMT (India)
  • My 925 is ready!
  • So is mine :-)
  • Thanks for the update! Been refreshing the insider app feverishly for the past 24 hours and odd they are not releasing on a Tuesday~Thursday.
  • Tempted to upgrade but waiting for Cortana to be released in the UK on Windows 10, I use it a lot currently so will definitely miss it.
  • Man the icon is a piece of sh*t. Great device but everytime theres a update there is some weird bs going on. Hopefully this Rom idea work out I'll get a S6 and load 10 on that.
  • It's actually one of my favorite phones, especially with Denim. Not getting an early alpha/beta build of a new OS hardly makes it a POS. People who load beta OS's on their main phone are a tiny minority in the world.
  • Official or whatever the track record for the Icon from a software standpoint is not good. Great device but poor software compatibilty. Could be worse though if this was a Lollipop update lol.
  • and they are probably the people who complain alot because it has bugs and then they don't understand the fact that this preview is not like WP8 previews that were stable and it was just a way to skip carriers. they really think they are running Windows 10 RTM and complaining like if their phones aren't going to get Windows 10 only because two phones are not getting Insiders Phone Preview 2.
  • Plenty of issues with icon denim, my favorite is losing cell network and being forced to reboot once a week
  • 1320 get ready ma boy
  • Awesome! Spare 920 ready and waiting.
  • So, I don't quite understand why some phones are excluded: like, this seems to imply that Microsoft needs to write separate versions of Windows 10 for each device that runs Windows 10? Certainly they don't have to do that for every computer out there. What am I not understanding?
  • I'm not sure if this answers your question, but Gabe said the reason the 930 and Icon are not included is because they need to add support for a new scale factor (likely due to them being 1080P at 5"). So I don't think they're writing a separate version for each device, but rather they adding support for required features. However, I could be wrong as I'm no expert.
  • No, you're right. Not separate version, just a compatibility bug based on specs. Just like coding an app, might work on every device but one. Doesn't mean the app needs to be scrapped and rewritten for the other device, just updated to work properly.
  • They accidentally forgot 930/icon is the only flagship they released last year. So why focus any development effort there
  • F'n Icon.
  • Are you fucking kidding me? Us Icon users are the most unlucky ones in the entire ecosystem. We paid for a high end phone that ultimately was neglected and bug ridden. With all the hardware issues I've had with this piece of shit, seeing them quote a hardware bug makes me feel like this was a poorly thought out device. I love Windows Phone, but this is making me want to jump ship. I never had issues with my 928 and would have stayed had I seen the shit storm ahead of time.
  • How recommendable is the current build? I'd like to install this new one on my L920, but I'm afraid it's still too unstable.
  • Well you can always rollback to 8.1 if it is unstable
  • Current build is pretty buggy and some things wont work properly. Wait till this Friday :)
  • Is it Friday yet
  • Friday n wednesday wasnt supposed to be the days :D
  • Are there any advantages to have windows 10 for phone coupled with Windows 10 build 10049 ?
  • Yes! Yes! Yes! Finally after 2 long months Windows 10 update is coming this Friday.. If you smell what the update is cooking..
  • W T F. My icon just told me she's gotten use to the waiting....
  • Lumia 810 Win10 when
  • Never.. It is outdated I guess
  • That's not correct. It will get it at the same time, this Friday. It was included on the list of supported phones for the next preview, and the only phone on that list which has since been removed, is the Lumia Icon.

  • Yaaay.. Happy Lumia 930 user here(Not)
  • Yeah!
  • I have a developers account and my phone is unlocked by the app 'Preview for Developers' Will my Lumia 820 get this update the normal way or is there more work required to get this update??
  • Sign up for the windows insider profram and install the app. Ir will overrule the preview for developer app
  • Little problem... Windows Insider app stops working since last system update (wich puts full Denim on my 830). MS will updade Windows Insider before this WP10 release?
  • Are u getting an error or what??
  • No, any arror at all... Simple doesn't work! Can't find any build for mu 830. And before last sistem update the app works ok, find the build perfectly. I just doesn't install, I prefer wait for nex build (this build)....
  • If I remember rightly, Gabe said on twitter that the new build will support newer update versions or something along those lines. So your issue should not exist for the next build :-)
  • I wonder if the previous models will get an upgrade, or will it only be for the rest of the models.
  • The current 6 models will have them too. In the windows insider u will be notified that an update is ready or wait on the confirmation on the wpcental app and look for updates within insider then
  • Can I upgrade my 830 to next build.... From win 8.1...?
  • Yeah, as far as I know you can right now to the first build if you are an insider
  • Yeh of course.....
    But first make sure to sign in insider program..^_^
  • Pls add the updates to the final such as picture password as on PC and also enable the feature for all phones to share internet data from phone to PC via USB..!! These updates would be much necessary.. I suggest picture password because UC browser has already given that feature. Why not Windows phone get it?? Thanks.!
  • FUCKING LAME Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • Lol go back to your crashing Android OS pal. Windows phone or nothing.
  • Thank you so much for this incredibly useful and informative comment.  
  • GTHO
  • Finally! Will this update override the update message of the first build or do I have to update to the first build and to the new build afterwards?
  • Nope you can update the first build if you have it. If not you can install the second build friday when it goes live
  • YEAH. I'm ready too install
  • Aww Friday? I'll be at work all day on Friday :-/  Still excited nonetheless!
  • Can i download it with cellular data ??
  • No! Wi-fy only
  • Wow, I just sold my 1520 for a 930. Guess I'll be waiting then...
  • The first build was to unstable and uninstalled it from my 635.Might give the second build a shot and see how it turns out.
  • Sooo ready ! Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Got an icon for sale. $200 done hangin out with a dying horse.
  • You really wanna sell it? How much you want for it I will buy it off your hands provided you have it in good condition.
  • Yep. Dying horse because an OS that isn't even finished yet doesn't work on your phone. Much stupid in this one.
  • Time to charge up my old 920 lying somewhere. :)
  • Finally. I can't wait until Friday
  • 521? : (
  • Should i buy 930 now or wait till the new device launch? I fear that they will stop the support for 930 in 2-3 years.
  • Isnt that with every phone. I bought an 830 but im not fearing ms wont support it over 3 years. They might stop making them but lets face it support is for a long period of time
  • I was waiting for this news since last 4 5 days as 7was the date which they were going to roll out windows 10 later they stated that they will lauch Lumia 640& 640xl so I supposed this week they will do it but when. .checked at midnight and whatever possible but its really a great news for me and my l1520 .....now cant wait ...
  • Seems faster
  • I believe the term is "snappier"  
  • No, any arror at all... Simply doesn't work! Can't find any build for mu 830. And before last sistem update the app works ok, find the build perfectly. I just doesn't install, I prefer wait for nex build (this build)....
  • Yes !!! Finally
  • HTC One M8?
  • Not this build next build
  • 10h on PST = 18h on +00 (Greenwich / Universal Time)
    Now just sum your timezone to 18. Example: Brazil = 18h - 03 = 15h
    India = 18h + 05:30 = 23h30
  • Thanx buddy!^_^
  • Can you upvote to more people see it
  • Thanks dude but itss too night .....
  • Thnx Bruno....
  • HtC 8X?
  • I have an Icon, and I completely understand why. Every project is a balancing act with timing your resources and prioritizing. If you *still* have an Icon it is because 1. you love the 21MP camera, extra space for tiles, microphones, performance, and other hardware aspects... and 2. you have ALREADY PROVED that you will wait forever. If I were Microsoft, I ALSO would not be in a hurry to develop for the Icon and its users who will wait and already know they won't get the update until at least a year after it is released while Verizon sits on it. Yes, if I were Microsoft, I would be compelled to hurry for the devices and users who actually have expectations. Not bitter... just admitting the reality.
  • Being stuck on Verizon with unlimited data, paying 500$ cash for the phone would be my reason for still having an icon
  • THATS QUITE ENOUGH COMMON SENSE OUT OF YOU! RATIONAL BEHAVIOUR HAS NO PLACE HERE!
  • Suuuuuupeeeerrrrr!!!!!!
  • i dont get the windows insider builds... says NO BUILDS.... im running a L920... and have been registered for the insider program for sometime now
  • It wasn't ready yet until this new build Friday
  • If it still has hamburger menus at the top I'm going to start worrying...
  • Get over it.
  • Otg go to this version??
  • Yes!!!
  • One more reason why the 1520 is the final and best Nokia flagship.
  • Well said! Too bad I sold mine for a 930...worst choice ever that was :(
  • Probably the best WP ever created, by Nokia. Sad that it's underrated.
  • Sweet. Now maybe people will stop berating Gabe on twitter. Lol.
  • Ready to fire up on Lumia 925
  • Its always bad news with Windows Phone. People can tell others not to complain or go elsewhere, but nobody and I mean NOBODY will buy these phones second hand. When Google is against you, you can see how much that means. That's not their only woes, but one to highly consider. The UI is different and its nice, yeah, but it doesn't wow me. The 21mp camera on this icon doesn't wow me...so windows fan boys can talk however long they want...the people in the US aren't listening. Windows phone will meet the same fate as blackberry. Difference is that blackberry used to be immensely popular. Windows phone has NEVER been popular. Its popular in WalMart and slums...Please god, buy this icon, so I can at least buy a shitty android, it'll be better lol
  • Lol your sad
  • Its you're...and its sad that you feel you can open your mouth and disrespect someone, but don't know how to correctly spell it. So no, you're sad.
  • Nope. You're sad.
  • If the Icon camera doesn't wow you, no camera will. That thing is fantastic. And if you can't afford a shitty Android without selling your Icon, you might not want to talk bad about the WalMart crowd. ;)
  • Hahah durp da durp durp! Windows phone geeks are the dumbest of the group with your stupid comments. Just stfu
  • LOL
     
  • So clevar! March smert. Sew kewl. Cen eye bee lyk yew?
  • LOL
  • You sir (iWPhoned), are a twat!!!!
  • Go to androids hell...
  • Awesome!! Hopefully they're no issues with the 1520. Also, pre-releasing the phones that will have to be excluded before the update is good PR maneuvering on their part.
  • So I hope my Lumia 630 Dual Sim can now install this version. The first version is not supported by my Lumia 630, although it is listed in the first batch of supported phones. Then I finally read the "fine print", some models of the listed phones aren't supported or wont be supported by Windows 10.
  • My daily phone is a 1520. I bought a 635 just to test out Windows 10, and I wasn't too impressed. The worst part is, there's no MMS APN setting. That would render my 1520 useless if I install WP10 on it.
  • Damn... My Nokia 3510 and 6110 are not in the list :(
  • Bring Surface Phone as flagship phone. Wishful thinking. :)
  • But Ade also admitted that no Tablets would be able to run Windows 10 mobile. The implication being no existing Tablets will run the mobile version which is pretty dissapointing for those of us with small tablets.
  • Why would you want to do that, when you can run full Windows 10 on them?
     
  • Hey guys Windows Insider is not working in India those who updated Lumia Denim firmware... Just check
  • Nooo... Don't say that again :p
  • We finally get news that a new build is coming and then complaint after complaint after complaint... MS should've made the requirements stricter I guess. This is a preview build for testing purposes, not a public release. Appreciate the fact that you're even being allowed to try it without at MSDN subscription or something along those lines.
  • Being allowed?? Excuse me but the last time I've checked, you won't get very usable feedback with a build every two months only for some phones. If yoy really want public testing and feedback gathering, you won't release your builds at a 2 month rate! And with limmited device support
  • Yes, being allowed. When have you ever seen a pre-beta release OS from anyone else that's open to the general public? Being able to test the OS is a privilege. Complaining because it isn't going according to your timeframe is b.s. Builds will be released when they are ready to be so that the general user doesn't end up with a $600 brick. If you want to potentially brick your phone, use a leak. If not, again, Microsoft will release the builds when they're ready and sufficiently stable as a privilege to insiders. Be happy you're not waiting for the consumer preview.
  • To the contrary. You'll get consistent, specific feedback of feature use over a meaningful timespan. Although, I'm now firmly of the opinion they should have charged a fee for access to the Insider program - would mean only genuinely interested people would enrol and they'd be much less of the negativity all over the place.
  • People will never be happy or satisfied... I just ignore those folks. :)
  • It's about dam time. I waited long enough also it better come with some killer features in this build due to Microsoft not holding there end of the bargain with monthly updates.
  • Riiiigggghht. Your sense of entitlement and privilege is truly inspirational.
  • Cortana, remind me that Friday 10th April will be an awesome day.
  • Sure thing, Cortana will remind you to Awesome day on Friday 10th April
  • Icon, icon...
  • any news on when a build will be available for the lumia 820, dying to get hold of wp10.
  • on friday
  • It's available for all Lumias
  • How's the battery life for those running Windows 10 on their phones right now.  I would expect if there were an issue that MS would have tried to fix it in Friday's build but was just curious.
  • Till now there is no issues found by me on my Lumia running w10 tp so don't worry about battery life...
  • What is the rough estimation of the download size?
  • Looking forward on my l920 ;)
  • Does it mean around 21 hours from now?
  • My 930's feeling sad :(
  • I totaly regret buying the 930! Not only it heats like hell but now...I have to wait probably another 2 months for the next build. Not good at all. Unless they add the 930 support on the go before the next build after Friday, I won't even bother with this insider program because it's a waste of time. What feedback can we give if we get a build for only some phones once every two months?? Others than Indians and Chineese people have windows phones too, we do exist and ditching support for our flagships again it's very disapp.
  • They are not ditching the support...if there there is some issue releasing update for 930, would you like to install it on your phone?...just be thankful...everyone has waited for long to get these...we're not even supppsed to get it...remember TP. ;)
  • Self-entitlement alert!
  • So they can scale it to 6" but have problems with 5"? Yeah, sure. This is just another bullshit excuse. If anything, their problem is that the 929/930 até heating up EVEN MORE than they already do on WP8.1 Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • LOL. Moron. Yeah they are lying about the resolution issue. Where's your tin foil hat?
  • I think 930 has no on screen buttons... this distinguishes it from others and might make a scaling issue.
  • Windows Phone 8.0 didn't scale for the Lumia 1520
  • :)
  • Whyyyyyyyyy
  • Fuck yeah!!!!!
  • Woohoo
  • Interesting I thought they didn't do update roll-outs on Friday (and even Monday)
  • They have no specific day for updates.
  • Yes they have....they do not push any updates on Fri, Sat, Sun, Mon. But this time Gabe specifically said in a tweet that we are ready to work weekends but we want you people to have it.
  • No, they don't [i]usually[/i] do releases on those days. It's not that they don't ever do it. Anyone who works in IT will tell you why those days are usually avoided for releases.
  • Anybody gift me low end lumia, to test win 10 :) I'm poor journalist... (no its not joke)...  
  • Lol lets exchange.. :P
  • Do you think I have good one? :D I have Blu win jr :d
  • Come on.. Will exchange urs with my L620..
  • Icon.....shafted again.... :(
  • Guys,I have a doubt. Will existing apps work on windows 10?
  • They should do! If not then MS is making a big mistake by forcing the developers rewrite their apps/games again for W10
  • WP8 apps work on W10 for Phones.
  • Thanks friends.. So my device is ready to be updated... Yeahhh
  • Yeah.. About 99% of the apps would work.
  • Yes definitely they will
  • I AM SO ANGRY
  • Lol...
  • MY FREAKING 930
  • Lumia 925 Ready!
  • "No ICON" FML
  • All apps won't work on windows phone 10 till the developers make an update to support for wp 10
  • does this mean it will be available for the 1520?
  • Yessss
  • will have to wait
  • I wonder how many people in this comment section still has a Lumia 920 laying around somewhere. I expect a very high number (me included by the way) :)
  • I still have a 520 in my desk...  
  • That's.... Not a 920 lol
  • I just hope they fixed the bug where I wasn't able to play Minecraft or Listen my music on Spotify.
  • Why not Lumia 930!!!!!!!
  • Read the article
  • So I'll have to stick with the current preview on my 930... Missing some stuff but it's still better than 8.1. I don't get why a display scaling bug is considered as blocking, while it is not on the 1520. Insiders can understand it won't be that small on the final version...
  • -_- -Lumia 930 owner
  • Sadly just handed my 928 in for a warranty issue and the handed me an Icon. I was happy at first.
  • You don't want W10 on your primary phone yet anyway. Lots of bugs.
  • My 920 is very excited.  
  • 930 user here. Im sure 930 and icon support will be added into an update prior to the next next build. Seeing as its a bug fix , this shouldn't take so long.
  • Been waiting for months, and I am away this Friday... FFS
  • This is going to be phenomenal. I have been with with Windows since it was 6.0 and have seen it all 6.5, 7.0, Mango, Tango... till 8.1 I was about to loose the patience couple of weeks back and get on to Android band wagon (sorry Apple fanboys)... But then leaks from Win10 changed my mind... Win10 is going to rock the show!!!
  • On the 10th at 10 o'clock, how fitting
  • Well, lets see if Win10 is enough for me to stay with my Lumia 1020. Otherwise the G4 might be my next upgrade...
  • Amazing...
  • I sure am glad I bought into WP with that awesome example of the kind, the Icon!  Nothing like a flagship that never gets an update.  Screw WP.
  • Go buy an iphone then....
  • Can't wait!!! :)
  • Beyond frustrated at this point
  • Now that my 1520 is being discontinued, I will download it on there now.. F-It!
  • No problem bro, we used to being Microsoft's bitch. We'll keep waiting.
  • Phew !
  • Lucky I have a 830 and 930!
  • Hhhh still not excited this could be delayed due to a bug bla bla bla or something in the last minute
  • I bought Lumia 925 last month for a 75% discount. This will be my test phone, and Lumia 1520 my daily driver.
  • Full transparent tile
  • Thats strange... friday? They said they normally avoid mondays and fridays...
  • About time wooot
  • My 1520 and my body are ready
  • I can't wait! Thanks!
  • As an Icon owner, I'm not shocked we're excluded. Its been the norm for this device and I've come to expect it. Just wish they wouldn't have previously annouced its availability which got my hopes up!
  • Bout damn time lol
  • Friday..11.30 PM for India..
  • Excellent now my 1520 will get a taste of w10 TP all I want it to do is work and allow me to install apps and I ain't going back to WP 8.1
  • Finally the most awaited
  • WTF, no ICON ? Of course the ICON get it the last....
  • I might have to get me a midrange Lumia then cuz my htc 8x isn't getting any love
  • When will HTC get some support?? Seriously I got it as it was one of the first high end 8.1 phones, and was told WIn10 would come to 8.1 phones first.. Come on MS.. cant test it if you dont release it. 
  • Exactly that. It's not a release. It's a technical preview. So of course they'll test it on their own hardware platforms first. I don't imagine the HTC customer support folk would be all that pleased if MS started pumping out alpha (at best) software to their hardware.  
  • At last
  • Where is my 930 update. :(
  • Where is my 930 update
  • Finally
  • What time in India?
  • Use something like timeanddate.com to convert US times to other times. Or read the earlier comments where someone's answered that already ;-)  
  • Friday 10.30pm in India
  • At last, I was waiting anxicously for my Lumia 520.  Everyone that is living in South-Africa it will be 8PM on Friday CAT or SAST.
  • I can't wait for this,
  • What is PT or ET? I only find in search PST and EST.. Thanks!
  • It's that. They've just not put the S in.  
  • 2pm in Brazil! Can't wait! My 925 rules!
  • This build is safe for phone? Can I uninstall the same?
  • I would like to complain about all the people who complain on this site. There are too many people complaining and it's becoming something to complain about. I'd particularly like to complain about people who don't live in America complaining about American time zones. I live in Asia where we don't have a lot of time zones. I also travel a lot and I have to say with modern technology it's no big deal changing the time on your phone. Most phones do it automatically. Then again, I have an old antique wind-up watch and I have to admit it's a bit of a pain every time I go into America having to wind my watch back 20 years.
  • This is really worrisome although great for our platform sucks for me. I dont want the experience on a midrange or budget phone. I want to see how my L930 handles W10. The phone definitely has bugs which I dont fully understand because the chipset is almost identical to the 1520
  • Yes, This update just like a joke for lumia 930. A flagship will have no upgrade. What the f***  the "device scaling" means? We want to know exactly
  • Will be awesome on my 1520! Only wish GDR2 Windows update 2 was also available.
  • My 620 is ready :)
  • +620
  • Well guys I have a big doubt can anything clear it?
    So are we going to miss all Nokia features in Windows 10 TP? I mean glance screen, double tap to awake etc?
  • Will it support the HTC 8X?
  • Now I'll give it a try on my Lumia 830.
    Brazil are ready M$!
  • What a great news on my birthday......
  • REALLY!!!!! EEEEERRRRRRRRRRRR... Icon not getting this build.. What's up with that...
  • Still preview
  • My L 820 and 925 are waiting ,, bring it on msft..
  • Icon owner done with Microsoft.
  • Still running w10tp Chinese proxy hack on my 930 and don't see any scaling issues at all.... Why is this Gabe guy talking shit and why backpedal on the icon now? Can't get their story straight. Eh care less anymore.... Over it
  • My 920 has battery or charging problems. It constantly shuts down for no reason.
  • Lumia 520 available??
  • Yes it is 
  • Hello
  • Sorry 930"s...u will get next time.....guys can anyone say what's the size of this TP of windows 10 ...because I have only 600mb of 3g....help
  • Friday? Someone is feeling confident.
  • Im waiting on ms confirmation what changes the new build has. I hope the bluescreen is gone and that there is landscape UI and i hope the new outlook mail and calender have been intergrated
  • Anybody wants it for 1320???!!
  • Can't wait . . . no actually I can.
  • Can't wait.
  • I'm having heating issues with 920, any idea how to resolve this???
  • Wat does PT stand for? Pacific time?
  • PT? PACIFIC TIME?
  • Yes.  
  • I knew that it will come on that day when i will not be home.
  • I also had problems with 8.1 on my 620, even after various resets. Solution was to use the Windows Phone Recovery Tool to reinstall my firmware
  • Xcited for it!!!
  • Lol
  • I want Cortana active in Canada. If not I'm not sure.
  • Nice
  • I wish it has Cortana voice update
  • Will this release support those phones which have OS version higher than  8.10.14219.341 ?
  • Will know once it is released :-P
  • yahoo,,,,thnx microsoft
  • it is Friday 10.30pm in India.. may help some.. 
  • Can anybody help me to install Windows 10 Preview on my phone.   I am using Lumia 830 with Windows Insider app, I'm already part of Insider Program with hotmail ID. But whenever I try to install the preview it says NO BUILDS and please check with the program registration or check with phone requirements. I done it with so many times and still the same problem which stops me to install preview on my phone.   I don't know where the issue is.....pleasee help.   Regards, Prateek
  • Keep Calm And Wait for the update !
  • I already upgraded to win 10 technical preview for 830 and again I roll back to windows 8.1...now when I try to login in windows insider for upgradin to win 10.. it's shows no build.. Help me plz
  • First people to get it, please let us know if the alarms are working again in the new build? I think recurring alarms were the specific issue in last build.
  • The list for the second build was released some weeks ago...can someone just give me a link or something that'll lead me to it cause I have forgotten to save it to my offline list and I want to know if my Lumia 720 is eligible for the TP upgrade! Thanking you all in advance!
  • Windows 10 is last chance for Microsoft from my side...i need multitasking like android....need background downloading
  • Looking forward to tomorrow,great news!!!!!!!!!!
  • Oh yeaaaah
  • Why so many negative comments in this site? just wonder how many people on here are in actual fact trolls for ios/droid. Point is that what Microsoft are doing here is revolutionary in terms of mobile development. To let the public have their say in the future shape of their os of choice which most here like myself have followed from the days of windows mobile. Microsoft can only be applauded for their openness in developing Windows 10
  • Guys are there chances for this to brick our phone? Planning to try it on my 920..Thanks in advance
  • Installing a preview OS comes with a risk. But it's probably a small risk.
  • I am anxiously waiting for Windows 10 preview for my lumia 535 . 
  • 930/Icon owners, don't get upset. The fix will most probably be in the next build, and Microsoft has promised faster updates from now on. Everybody'll have it soon enough! :)
  • Considering Microsoft is based in Redmond Washington the PT makes sense
  • Which feature is coming in wp 10 which is not available in android n ios?
  • So, a regular (not Dual SIM) 640 and 640XL get no love tomorrow?
  • Possibly not. If the handsets are only just making it to retail it's possible MS haven't been able to test it on them yet.
  • I don't see why MSFT needs the phones to be commercially available in order to test the new build on them, since they produced them in the first place.
  • Well it depends if they want to test them or risk a hardware/OS combination that doesn't work. What comes out the factory isn't always what was designed. Although the exclusion of those devices could also be down to human error, a dislike for the model, a known issue or any other number of reasons.  
  • Can I upgrade 640xl to windows 10 preview
  • Is it on the list of supported devices?  
  • ready with Lumia 625
  • Why is it the Lumia Icon always suffers from some blockage on updates!?  I don't mean to complain but, come on!  The Lumia Icon is supposed to be a "flagship" Windows Phone and it always seems to be placed on the back burner for updates.  PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE Microsoft, place a HIGH PRIORITY on fixing this bug issue for the Lumia 930/Icon.  I'd like to be a Tech Previewer and help get the OS ready.  I'm already Tech Previewing Win10 on my laptop, so would be great if I can get it on my phone as well to see how the two communicate.  Waiting patiently...
  • Waiting patiently
  • The one time Im not currently carrying my 920 with me, a new update is around the corner :( How can I persuade my girlfriend that a new build is a valid reason to leave Florida, skip our vacation that just started and return to Sweden?
  • 520 is in the list. Hope its variation (521) get the update too on Friday.
  • 521? : (
  • Lest people think I'm only doom and gloom, let me say that I'm very much looking forward to Windows 10 for phones, regardless of my cynicism on app support and lack of flaghship phones.  Just the fact that we might be getting an actual modern mail/calendar app is more than enough to get me excited. :) I'll definitely be loading it on my 1020, and if it's as buggy and broken as the first release, well, I'm sure any enthusiast is used to reloading/resetting their phone. Big deal, imo, for anyone who essentially stores everything in the cloud. 
  • Hahaha...thats exactly the problem here ...too much people with common sense
  • They can keep it away from the 930, windows phone 10 looks hideous.
  • And when I just lost my Lumia 1520
  • Just reinstalled the current preview. I am ready to receive you.
  • Finally! Tomorrow :D
  • Can 640xl is upgradable to this build?
  • Looking forward to WP 10 on 10 at 10..
  • Looking forward to WP 10 on 10 at 10!!
  • 1520 will see this tomorrow once i wake up
  • IM GOING TO TEST IT ON MY 520 FIRST
  • than we can talk about my 925 or 1520
