    Great to know, but for those of us who are not comfortable with making these type of changes, could you or someone offer a step by step instruction set to join the insider program and install WIN 10 /10586 - Along with instructions to uninstall and get back to WIN 8.1 if it doesn't work out? I won't be "hacking" to get Redstone, but I would like to try WIN 10.

    There are a lot of people talking about installing this and that version in this forum. For us non-technical people we need a simple guide to walk us through the process, and to ease our fears about getting back to where we started if something goes wrong.

    Best regards
    Here is a good start, explained quite well, read through the post and replies, it is based on a 1020

    Before upgrade, make sure your data is backed up and everything synced. Clear some memory - about 3Gb free is okay
    Download windows insider app
    Enroll in the app and select slow ring
    It will ask you to restart.
    After restart, check for updates - you should see windows 10 mobile update
    Let it download and install. Do this while your phone is charging and using wifi as the update can be large
    After installing, check for updates again, There might be more
    After OS updates are finished, check for store updates and then app updates
    Let your phone be on wifi and charging while it syncs and data and updates any app

    Change settings as you like and test it out.

    To go back to windows phone 8.1, you will need a computer for that. Install a program called windows device recovery tool and follow instructions in the program on how to restore your phone back to 8.1

    I had an issue with 10.0.10586.107 in that my phone would not update past this and also some noticeable performance issues, so today I bit the bullet and went down to 8.1. Re-installed the insider app and selected fast ring, but my phone will not pull down the update. Changed to slow ring and same thing. The worst thing is that my backups are for windows phone 10. I did this procedure before back in October and didn't have any issues. Any clues out there on what I'm missing?

    My Lumia 1020 is now running Windows 10. It's better than I thought. The speed of all Apps is similar to Windows 8.1. Many Apps are better than on Win 8.1 (Calender and Word for example).
    Just two annoying bugs:
    - Changing a Song gives a optical bug.
    - In Edge I had to type in my Username every time. In Win 8.1 IE rememberd my Passwords AND Username.

    First bug is a known bug, it's supposed to have been resolved in the redstone builds

    When you say it will not pull down the update, do you mean download? Or does the update check tell you there is no update available?

    Please read more in this forum about the Windows Insider program. This will allow any supported phone, including the 1020, to download Windows 10.
    Yeah there's the insider program but what about when it mergeds with Xbox they said they won't be supporting older Lumia's anymore?

    How would I know the video I recorded was in mono or stereo? I've never noticed the difference myself

    If you look at the properties of the file you can see it is in mono, also you can "hear" that it's mono

    I'm close to being done with Microsoft and Windows phone. I was a die-hard Windows supporter until this heinous Windows 10 Mobile debacle, now I just feel foolish for buying into their hype. I work in a technology company with 8000+ employees and 4500+ are given company supplied smartphones worldwide. I am one of a very small handful that selected to use my personal phone over an iPhone because I wanted to stay with Windows, so the company is using me as a guinea pig for the platform. I used to be smug about my choice, now I am just embarrassed.

    I appear to be stuck on 10.0.586.164 which compounds instability with unresponsive UIs and unacceptable battery consumption and here they leave me... apparently with an "end of life" platform that will not update to releases that would hopefully fix the problems.

    I have to have a device that works well so I am now facing replacement. Honestly, the 950 isn't even a consideration solely due to Microsoft's treatment of me as a consumer. As much disdain as I have had for iOS, I may just go there (although, the Blackberry Porsche Design P'9982 is calling my name...darn that is a handsome device!). I purchase my phones, and can not afford to spend hundreds of dollars only to be abandoned by the manufacturer.

    #MicrosoftDoYouListen? You are losing your loyal customers by your very poor choices.

    Yeah, it looked like Windows 10 was "the better idea" in that it would supposedly support just about any older Windows phone that had compatible hardware. I am VERY tired of the "two years and then throw it away" mentality when it comes to $500 phones. With this recent decision to abandon lots of older phones (that are in fact already running Windows 10), Microsoft established a very bad precedent. I was thinking seriously about the 950 as a replacement for my 1020.... it has just about everything I want in a phone and with a replaceable battery it could have a very long useful life. But there is no way I will buy a 950 with MS has essentially telling us that after a couple years, we will need to throw away a perfectly good phone and buy another one.

    Back to Ebay and used Nexus phones I guess. At least I don't lose much when they get abandoned.

    I had such high hopes for Windows 10.
