    Cheers

    Oh, erm.... I just did... Are the bugs that bad...

    Hang on.. is it supposed to be this easy.. All i did was download preview for developers from the apps store, signed in with my Microsoft account.. and i got 8.1 straight away.. I didnt have to register visual studio or as a developer or anything.. is it supposed to be this simple.

    I thought i had to register online, change my region and everything.. Im only making sure that I have the developer preview and ill get the Cyan/8.1 OTA in 2 weeks...

    You'll be fine. Any phone with the 8.1 dev preview on it will get the official update over the air just like everyone else.

    I've been on 8.1 for well over a month and I have yet to find these bugs that everyone talks about. I am using a Hong Kong phone too. Even Cortana works fine.

    I was going to wait too, but I was getting impatient with how uncertain and wonky the whole process is to get this update released and I was getting sick of checking "phone update". At this rate, you really don't know how long it's going to take for them to release the update since it has to get passed through region, carrier, and specific phone model.

    I got the 8.1 update and I am extremely glad I did. The update runs very solid and I've noticed very rare and minor bugs that doesn't affect the experience. When the preview first came out I heard there were a lot of bugs, but enough time has passed to iron almost everything out. I'm even running Cortana here in Canada and it works great. I really see no reason to wait as updating now VS. later will probably be almost identical.

    The process is pretty easy. Let me know if you can't figure it out

    I just got a 1520.3 and I was planning on waiting til the Cyan/8.1 update is released. I just moved from Android and this is my first WP (lovin' it, but I'm still in my "adjustment phase").

    Quick question: When I upgrade to Cyan and WP8.1, will I loose all my personal data within my applications (specifically, my Favorites locations stored within Navigon)? Or does the phone do a back-up of app data prior to the upgrade?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Cheers,
    Justin

    Thank you Pranshul... Quick question: How do you make a back up? I've turned on "Back-Up SMS" and "App list+Settings" in the Settings.... Is that what you're referring to? If so, thanks for the advice. Sorry to be such a noob....

    I think that we have a wrong information here about Lumia Cyan ... Lumia 925 DP 8.1 did not get update in Finland, unless you downgrade it first to 8.0 ... well, Lumia DP 8.1 will get update, of course, but you have to wait longer ...
