    I purchased my Nokia Lumia 1520 from B&H about a month ago, and everything is working well until today. My phone suddenly decided to reboot by itself, and screen with the Windows logo booted twice. The second time has the red "Not for Resale" in the left corner. I checked the IMEI, and it appears to be clean. Is there a bug on my device, or should I be really concerned about the ownership?

    Here also. I think it's you are an insider and the next owner probably not. You have w10 right?

    It's to stop OEMs trying to flog Technical Preview as a release version.

    Did you do the trick through Insider to get Update2 ???

    My phone came with WP8.1 Cyan, and I updated to Denim through the normal update on the phone.

    In addition to everything, the entire boot up process is slower, and I can't download or move apps to the SD card. Would it be better to do a hard reset? This has been a great phone until yesterday.

    With Insider active and enrolled, the "normal" update will have downloaded GDR2, hence the change to splash screen. That's the only explanation I can think of.

    I don't believe I have Insider. Would the problems occur suddenly? I've had the update for a month now, and the phone had been fine until yesterday. I am tempted to hard reset, but I'm afraid of encountering other problems afterwards.

    My 635 showed this too. Don't think it was immediately after install but after a soft reboot it did.

    Phone otherwise normal.

    It just means the win10 beta OS isn't sellable and you can get into loads of trouble if you try.

    Hey, um, guys, he's on Windows Phone 8.1 update 1, not Windows 10. So the problem he's having seems to be a legitimate problem.

    That why I have asked him to post a screenshot, as this is an unique issue. If we can resolve this or learn from it, it will useful for other users also.

    My phone came from B&H with Black... I would expect any BNIB phones to come with Black as that was the way 1520 launched. I assume it is an RM-938 or 1520.3 as it gets called?

    When you say you updated the "normal way" does that mean an OTA update sent to the phone or using a Tool like LSRT?

    It really sounds to me like the phone installed Win 10 on a delay after the GDR2 trick. How long have YOU had the phone?

    If you can post screen shots... On the About... press more info and then block out your IMEI # (easily done in Paint) before uploading the pic. I'd like to see a screen shot of your Settings page...

    I saw this happen on my 920. I thought it weird at first but ignored it since this is a preview.

    let's break it down:
    - that OS version (8.10.14234.375) is much larger than mine (AT&T 1520 RM940 = OS: 8.10.14219.341) on Lumia Denim, WinPhone 8.1 Update
    - that banner is for preview software, which appears to be on the device
    - under SETTINGS >> Phone Update - you can set this to AUTO install updates (possibly GDR2, possibly set to ON) preliminary to Win 10 for phones
    - check for Windows Insider installed under apps, or Preview for Developers
    - screen shot your SETTINGS >> ABOUT screen (blurring out your IMEI), SETTINGS >> EXTRAS & INFO screen
    - I do realize the RM938 the OP has (an assumption) could be different, but ...

    This would be indicative of an update, being (AUTO) installed. Sounds like you took GDR2 ...

    Check your PHONE UPDATE settings!

    BEFORE you Hard Reset, you gotta find out WHY! - you could wind up w Win 10 for Mobile (kinda meh right now for a daily use phone - I have it on my Lumia 635)

    Your phone is a bit outdated then, MDK22, my Lumia 920 has his same version without having the "Not for Resale" banner. So the problem isn't there, wonder where though...

    To OP,
    1)Download the recovery tool and hook up your phone. The tool will tell you your version and offer the latest version your carrier offers or the latest public build for your phone.
    2)Update/downgrade as necessary.
    3)Problem solved
