    This is a very good question. Logic would say that they would maintain this update but wouldn't be able to download any future preview edition updates. Things are always logical though.
    That would be my assumption as well, but as you said, may or may not be true.

    Bluetooth... after the update, I now notice that audio pipes directly through to my PC that I have my phone paired with. It didn't do this automatically before. VERY cool!!! Now if one of my custom text tones pops on the phone, it will automatically pipe it through to my PC. NICE!!!!

    Can't wait to see how it works with my car. I hope it doesn't disappoint!!!
    Before I could only do calls and music streaming via bluetooth, now I can do speech commands as well whereas before my phone couldn't hear the TellMe commands because the car mic wouldn't pass it through. So yay improvement.

    Unless someone has successfully done this, I wouldn't be telling people this. I would have to see multiple accounts of people reverting back to old versions before I say it is possible and won't do damage to your phone.
    I have actually reverted back to GDR2 Amber. No problem.

    I saw your thread early and edited the op. I still put for people to be very cautious considering MS said you won't be able to.

    The thought is that once the new official update hits, your phone will look like any other phone that never got the preview edition.

    Warning and possible bug with GDR3:
    Phone: AT&T Lumia 1020 on T-Mobile. Everything worked fine after Access Point was installed on Amber.

    Since GDR3, I am unable to send and receive MMS or group text messages.
    Sending says "Can't Send: Media Content In Message."
    Receiving says "Get media content now (1kb)" but clicking on it does not retrieve the content.

    This is in an LTE area and everything worked properly until GDR3. Internet access works. In "settings -> access point" I created another APN manually (same settings as they worked before) and mms still failed to work but LTE internet worked. In "settings -> cellular" I added an mms apn. Again - same known-working settings. Same results. Soft reset (power+down volume for 15 seconds) had no effect before or after changing these settings.

    Next troubleshooting steps: hard reset. Failing that, I'll try to flash down to Amber. I am downloading the updated Nokia Care Suite that apparently recognizes my phone but that's taking forever.

    MMS and Data works for me on a 925 on T-Mobile w/ GDR3 Preview so that rules out the OS bug. Could be a temporary issue with your network/phone.

    Same symptoms with a hard reset after installation of Access Point. Internet, but no MMS. Any other RM-877 AT&T Lumia 1020 owners on T-Mobile using GDR3 today? Does your MMS work?

    I also sent out group text don't seen to be a problem like the custom notification for text message
    and closing out apps with a X great beats having to always hit the back button. it seems to be a little faster also opening apps,

    What are your APN settings? Have you been able to send and receive picture messages?

    Another soft reset and more time spent syncing and eventually it cleared itself out. I had to receive an MMS message before it let me send one. Odd. In any event, it seems to be back in business. Thanks guys.
