    About getting the WP8.1, you should read this (long but very easy step by step procedure). But please keep in mind that this is a developer preview version which has some bugs, most noticeable one is the battery drain (gets back to normal after about a week of use), and some lag when returning to the start screen (very rare).
    All you need to know about the Windows Phone 8.1 'Preview for Developers' | Windows Phone Central
    Keep in mind that the first time you check for an update, it will download a 2MB preparatory update and then restart the phone (if it takes a lot of time, don't panic - mine took about half an hour). Then when the phone restarts, you have to check for an update again and this time it will download WP8.1 Dev Preview.

    [TIP]Please hard reset your phone before and after installing the update to make sure that you have a clean install and won't have most of the problems. Please PREFER NOT TO RESTORE YOUR BACKUP. It helps in removing the lag.[/TIP]
    you can PM me for any further help, or head to the forums here for WP8.1 Dev Preview (Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers - Windows Phone Central Forums)
