    Is that wp10, definitely not in my gdr2 1520?
    Just managed to start wp10 download so I might find out soon.
    Yes W10TP on 1020(RETAIL), though. Is your unit retail or from your Telco? I read it should be supported by your Telco as well..

    Well both the 1020 and the 1520 are confirmed. I have yet to install on my 1320. I am postponing installing on my 1520's because of the Office apps being non-existent in this build (I use Office and OneNote a lot on my 1520's for work).

    You need to get the preview build to get GDR2. I think if you don't want to install the W10TP you can postpone its installation. It downloads automatically as soon as GDR2 is installed and your phone reboots.

    So I've got the GDR2 update but now settings says my phone is up to date. The insider app says I'm in 'Insider Fast'.

    Try to reboot. Then go to settings and update phone if you want to get W10TP....

    I tried that but still nothing, maybe a reset will do the job but I would rather not have to reset my device.

    This is how I got mine: Open Windows Insider again, check for new builds, Phone reboots on its own, Settings, Check for updates, there it was W10TP started downloading.

    Try switching off preview for developers if you have I enabled?

    Didn't WC say that the theft protection in GDR2 can only be activated through fresh setup? So that means we would have to hard reset? Anyone willing to find out? I'm installing updates at this time.

    The appearance of GDR 2 is not unexpected. When I put my 635 on the first round of Insider it got bumped to Denim before getting 10 and Denim is still not available to ATT 635...

    It's just prep for 10.

    I'm updating Fast Track 10 for round two. Will advise if I get "GDR 2" as prep.

    US AT&T version Lumia 1520 - tried to get 8.1 GDR2 Update
    I had PFD enabled and then downloaded the insider app put myself on fast ring and then checked for phone update after phone rebooted. Once download was complete I uninstalled insider app and turned off PFD, letting the update install now. It is win 10 TP, never saw 8.1 GDR2.

    My 635 never stopped at GDR2... straight to 10 round 2.

    I think it is akin to the extras + info deal that has been ongoing. A quick test is can you double tap nav bar and lock the phone? That is a confirmed GDR2 feature.

    Ok, today the update suddenly showed up but now I'm note sure I want it as many people say it's a bit too early to use on your daily phone.

    My daily is a 1520.3. If you tried to put it on there we'd be fighting. I don't even want it on my backup, which is a 928. It's not touching my media player/toy, a 520.

    I got a 635 just for the Insider and if my Motherboard melts I really don't care...

    +3 Never saw GDR2 on my AT&T 1520. Went straight to W10TP with PFD enabled.

    Although, I must say, excluding the fact that Office is not installed, the build seems to be pretty stable and I'm thinking of keeping it on for a few days to see how it goes.

    Some things I noticed:

    Cons:
    1) Third party tiles are not live
    2) Modifying the background keeps crashing the setting page
    3) Small tiles when displayed in a folder do not remove app name
    4) The back button on the start screen and app list is buggy
    5) In IE11, when your viewing a webpage, you can't hit the 3 dots to bring up the menu. It presses the refresh icon.
    6) All apps get suspended in the background and the only way to "close" them is to open app switcher and 'x' or swipe them closed

    Pros:
    1) Battery life has been impressive throughout this morning so far and not heating up
    2) Outlook mail and calendar rock! You now have a file picker when attaching from within an email and when replying!!
    3) The new movable keyboard makes one handed typing on this beast now possible with ease!
    4) New app switcher is pretty cool showing four apps per page

    It's really not as bad as some people make it out to be. I get all my phone calls, texts and emails and can view webpages just fine which is ok for me.

    Only if your Insider App uses build R2 apparently. Wonder if its regional...

    Can you check if device encryption actually encrypts the SD Card? The way I would test it is first turn on encryption, then remove the SD card and try to read it on PC/Laptop. If its unreadable then that's a success (and a feature I have been wanting to store my pics and videos on the SD card by default)

    I (intentionally) used Insider to move my 1520 up to GDR2, was planning to stop short of Windows 10 TP... However... I have no audio at all on the device now, no notification sounds, can't play music etc (an error occurred during media playback. try playing your content in a little while.). Intermittent sync issues to my MS Band as well.

    Anyone else with similar issues? Might as well push ahead to 10 TP at this point... Soft reset doesn't help
