    If you don't feel like spending $19, head on over to App Studio and register.

    Here's how it will work.

    Visit the Windows Phone Preview for Developers web site (this will become live later today) and accept the terms and conditions. Then, download the Windows Phone Preview for Developers app, which installs from the Windows Phone Store directly onto your phone over the air. This app lets you opt-in new updates directly from your phone. Then, simply visit Phone Update in Settings and check for updates. Voila!

    [warn]Warning: Microsoft notes that the version of Update 3 you download this way will only include Microsoft's code, and not the handset maker and carrier firmware, driver and other software updates that will be added to the public release. You need at least OS version 8.0.10322.71 to participate and you can only move forward with regards to updates: There's no going back. Furthermore, it's possible this update will void your wireless carrier warranty.[/warn]

    Do you have to unlock your phone? On the developer site, it says to use the development tools, you need to unlock your device.

    Nevermind. I didn't read it carefully:

    To participate, you need to meet one of the three conditions: your phone is developer-unlocked, you are a registered Windows Phone Store developer, OR you are a registered Windows Phone App Studio developer.

    OP, consider updating the link to the story on this site: Get GDR3 today: Microsoft announces Windows Phone Preview for Developers | Windows Phone Central

    After all, you are using WPCentral's forums.

    So how will this affect our phones when bittersweet shimmer comes out? Will we be able to get it ota as usual? Or will we have to load it custom now? I just don't want to mess up future updates

    As far as I understand it there are two things on your device:
    - firmware (including Amber)
    - and the OS itsself

    While the former stays untouched, the latter will be updated to GDR3. So you keep your Amber features while the OS gets bumped to GDR3.

    That's how I think it will work too. That's why when Bittersweet Shimmer comes out, the people who install GDR3 now, will still get Bittersweet Shimmer OTA from the carrier when they decide to release it to their customers.

    You don't actually preview/test the update, once you install it, you have it, you can't uninstall it.

    App Studio is the way to get it free. As Iki Taba has just mentioned, followed the steps here to get it, if you wish to.
