    This is totally not a big deal, but one thing I noticed was that "Find My Phone" in settings no longer erroneously reported as being "off" despite the contrary. Not a big deal but it always kinda bugged me.
    Same here, that always bugged me too. Good catch.

    Woke up and read the story and updated immediately. It's minor but the custom SMS tones are something I've wanted and that alone was worth it. Closing apps makes it even better.

    FYI...for ref for anyone having issues/questions with newly installed GDR3 Dev Preview....another source of answers/discussion might be found at the 'Windows Developer's Network'...now with a new forum dedicated to the GDR3 and monitored by MSFT staffers.
    MSDN forums

    Hadn't seen this mentioned and thought it might supplement the info in this forum/thread

    since we cannot downgrade, does this mean when it is fully released that we will just update as normal?? that's the only thing that is putting me off right now,

    I will not, because im afraid of bricking my new htc x8 like the gdr2 update xD ill wait untill people with the htc x8 has updated their own phone lol
    GDR3 didn't brick my 8X. in fact it feels smoother and faster. Go ahead and update :) should be safe to do so.

    Had this updated without my knowledge, I may have never known. Bring on Bittersweet Shimmer!

    Well, I would have noticed the ability to force close apps, but... Minor update is minor.

    The WPCentral article states that this will void your device warranty.
    The first post on the thread states that this will most likely void your warranty until the official update hits your phone.

    Any confirmation, clarification, etc. on this? If it voids my warranty (which I don't even know what it is) completely, then I don't want to do this since the phone is pretty new. If it's only for the next month or so, then I'll jump on board.

    I just wish they add some more features to driving mode. Like the ability to manually turn it on by a button or to turn on between a predefined time period. Then i can use this as a dedicated college mode ;) Would be awesome to be able to send automatic replies to calls and messages during class without getting disturbed.

    I don't know how ATT would know if you bricked your phone completely. If you had to return it for warranty, a minor issue, its tough to say if ATT would look into the software version. There's a good chance they wouldn't,but if your are really worried, its best to hold off.

    Anyone else having trouble with the me tile? for some reason it keeps on reverting back to a old Facebook profile pic which i used a couple of months ago. I changed it by uploading a new pic via me tile but after couple of minutes it reverted back to the same pic. As if phone is in love with that pic. :P

    Before I do this I just want to be sure, I can restore it back using the Nokia Retail utility, correct? Obviously data would be lost if I do. I just want to be sure I can restore it if I have issues.
    Better read the intro and FYIs... NO you cannot go back.

    I updated but, disapointed that we cant get the 6 small times on my 928.... Otherwise it's a minor update with some new features that 1/2 of them I wont even use.....

    The install took about 25 min, have noticed no bugs so far, it seem to run smooth as before...

    You can if you flash to the latest ROM (pre-update) from NSU.

    If you had to send your phone in, more than likely they would not know/check the software version you had on there.

    Honestly, I've sent (windows) phones in for warranty with custom roms flashed and had no problems with getting the problem fixed.

    Plus, I think if you were to use the Nokia Care Suite you could reflash your phone to the latest released OS. (haven't tried it yet). I'll try it on my 520 tonight.

    I currently have my Lumia 920 and Lumia 1020. I installed the GDDR 3 dev update on my ATT Lumia 920 and everything seems to be working fine. I was lucky not to sell off my Lumia 920 and already decided that my Lumia 920 would be for only developmental purposes.

    They did what i was hoping they wouldn't, in that you can set a custom email tone, but not per-contact as they have for Ringtones, and now SMS *sigh*.

    Oh well, better than a poke in the eye with a hot stick i guess.

    Thanks everyone for the input! One thing I keep seeing is questions regarding the warranty. The reason why some manufacturers won't honor a warranty in this situation is that you have software on your phone that they didn't approve. Now, they may still fix your phone, but you have been warned.

    That said, your phone will be back under warranty once the official update comes out and hits your phone.

    One last thing: I haven't heard of any major issues regarding the update. It seems pretty safe.
