    Wonder if 8X is going to get windowphone 10
    I know we still have no official update to 8.1
    I mean if the Dev Preview
    would be compatible to 8X

    Dev preview is for all so I see no reason why it won't be.
    But as somebody's signature here says. If HTC WP 8x gets WP 10 then won't it be 10x? :D

    It depends on HTC, Microsoft will try to get w10 to all w8 phones, why it doesn't get it to HTC?

    Officially? I doubt it. Most, if not all 8X's don't even have 8.1 yet. Moreover, new OSes are generally used to push new hardware, so if HTC wants a WP10 phone, it will likely be on a new handset.

    because while MS releases the software, it requires active cooperation by HTC to make an official release. (and firmware if deemed necessary)
    and if the 8X is tied to a carrier, the carrier will have to push it to customers, and sometimes the carrier cant be bothered to do so.

    I have an 8x and I'm soooo pissed
    If I will continue to stay on Windows, I will never buy a non-MS phone again.
    Without OS updates, the phone becomes a junk.

    And I don't care how nice any of the future non-MS will be.

    How is any of that different to any Android phone?

    I've got an 8X, and understand the frustration, but it's not unique to WP and even a carrier locked Lumia will have the same issues with carriers not approving updates.

    Yeah, the problem is that American carriers suck.

    Without OS updates, the phone doesn't change or improve. But by no means does it become junk. It just doesn't change for better. I have a Treo, a time when updates was the exception not the rule, and it works fine etc. Its just old.

    but you're doing fine with 8.1 right?
    But hey, updates are a sticking point, so i feel you.

    I don't have Windows Phone 8.1 on it because it's not available.
    And I don't want to update to the 8.1 developer version which doesn't have OEM specific drivers.
    What a joke.
    I'll never buy a non-MS phone again.

    Don't know for you guys, but mine HTC 8X I working just fine with 8.1 update on DP. It has no bugs, and only thing I don't like is that HTC hub is not showing time while pinned to start screen. So my advice is...jump into Phone Insider app, wait for official Microsoft release and update to Windows 10. Don't waste time on waiting for HTC to release 8.1.

    I was told yesterday that my 8x (Verizon) failed the 8.1 upgrade. I'm not getting it...ever. So why would we get 10?

    Through the Insider program I imagine, as a last resort.

    There is software to convert the Lumia phones back to 8.1 if the win10 preview is too evil. Has anyone heard of similar software for the 8X? Or, even if MS Insider will let us update our 8X's?

    Yes. The 8X will get it.

    I see now that T Mobile has announced the 8X will not get 8.1.1. I think Verizon will do the same. I'm holding out for a flagship Window Lumina with Windows 10. Will have to wait a few more months.

    Yes, all installed on both our Verizon 8X phones. Took about 60 minutes...2 stages. All seems fine so far.

    I thought this thread is about 8X getting W10.

    Now is there any word on this, as MS has started to bring W10 previews on some Lumias?

    I already have 8.1 on my 8X, through developer preview. But, I thought I would still get firmware updates. Guess there were no firmware in the Verizon update? I have gotten no update.

    Yeah, it is a little off topic. There has been no official word on the 8X getting W10. Most statements have been related to the Nokia/ MS Lumia devices. At least so far.
