    It looks like AT&T has finally blessed W10 for the 830. Going thru the upgrade advisor, I am downloading right now. Question is, should I actually install it. Based on some of the forum threads, some things aren't so great for the 830. Have things improved enough lately to go ahead and move on from 8.1?

    it's mostly stable unless you had screen tearing issues

    Yes , since the official release of windows 10 for phones in march, it has become much more stable and with the upcoming anniversary update on 2nd August it is going to get even greater. I suggest that you move on to win 10 . ::) happy upgrading

    Thanks for the advice. I pulled the trigger. Update took over two hours, but went about it's business without a hiccup. I'm missing a few tiles on my start screen and can't remember which apps they were, but I'm hoping there's a W10 version available for what ever I'm missing.

    Question for the OP - what firmware are you now at after the upgrade to Win10? Is your firmware # 02179.00000.15455.24047 ?

    Just had a message from Upgrade Advisor that Win 10 was available for my phone (Lumia 830 on Cricket - a sub-carrier of AT&T). I am downloading and installing now. Wish me luck!

    Win 10 successfully installed! Whoo-hoo! There are a few gaps on my start screen where I don't remember what used to be in those slots - I would suggest taking a screen cap before upgrading so you can find equivalent apps to whatever ends up missing.

    I am excited to get W10 on my 830! I will wait a day until I need to recharge my phone, but I am glad that I finally get all the new stuff.

    The screen tearing and blinking issues have vanished completely after I upgraded to 14393.5. I guess the Anniversary Update did the trick for me. :)

    that's great - when I find that thread about 830 owners having tearing issues, I'll post about this

    My 830 downloaded automatically and installed last night, and now my phone won't work at all. It just cycles thru the initial Nokia screen endlessly and won't launch. I was running W10 on the Insider preview, the least advanced of the preview rings, and now I don't know what to do.

    you can try using windows device recovery tool to restore the original OS
    or do a hard reset using the hard reset combination keys

    Sounds like your phone isn't charging, try it in different charger. If that doesn't work then do a hard reset.

    I think it's laughable how AT&T pushed the official update to Windows 10 on the 640, 1520, & 830 but left us 640 XL users in the dust. Thank goodness for the insider program. I guess there aren't enough of us 640 XL customers to justify it in their minds.

    Yesterday actually. Still, it is horrible for the users of the 640 XL (and M8) to be left out when their phones are newer and have the appropriate specs for W10.

    Can anyone who has updated pinche in as to the screen tearing and blinking for the 830. Did this update fix it? This update seems to bump the firmware version and am contemplating to reset and update.

    Did MS or ATT announce the 640xl is not getting it? I'm about to buy one tomorrow to replace my bricked 830, that could change my mind.

    Hard reset combo keys does nothing. Still caught in a boot loop.

    I can't use windows device recovery tool because I'm in a vacation house and the windows xp computer here won't install the tool.
