    Hmmmm....That is a maybe, as we are hearing the announcement on Jan 21st, it's a big MAYBE but, I don't think so.. Remember, this would be a "Preview Program" so it's possible they allow a preview of Windows phone 10 is...

    Where is Denim, we are 10 days into the new year and still nothing ??? I wonder what they are defining as Early 2015.....
    Maybe I was right ? (I'm never right when it comes to my wife :/ )
    Mary Jo Foley says Windows Mobile 10 public preview coming soon

    There is very few people that I would trust when it comes to news for WP being true and Mary Jo Foley is one of them.....

    If we close this thread, is someone going to start the "Official 8.1/Emerald for the Icon" thread first?
    I am assuming Emerald is WP 8.1 update 2..... but, you cant because the rumor is it's been canceled...because of Windows Mobile 10 preview (or WP10, who knows at this point)

    Like the majority of you on this forum, I too have been waiting for the WP 8.1 update for my Icon. My family currently has 3 WP’s. Two 928’s and one 929. Earlier this year we had updated all with Developers Preview and have enjoyed using the new features.

    Now even though Verizon no longer has these phones available on their website, they are being sold directly through Microsoft Store for Verizon. Check it out.

    And we have had numerous phones over the years (iPhone, Android – over and over) but we all LUV OUR WINDOWS PHONES.
    Now I’m just waiting to get a Microsoft Band.

    And you can go into some Verizon Stores, some of them still have stock....Not all, I would call before going down to one...

    You should go to a Microsoft Store and try one on first. It's horribly uncomfortable.

    I hate to interrupt this thread's death spiral, but does anyone know how big this update is going to be since it includes both cyan and denim?
    When I updated my 822 to Denim a couple weeks ago, the download via Software Recovery Tool was 4 Gigabytes.

    ETA: Once the download was complete, the actual update process (gear spinning, plus migrating data) was very quick...much quicker than 8.0 to PfD 8.1 ...

    Off topic here. But I'd like to add my two cents on this. I don't own a Band, but I went to the Microsoft Store and tried it on. I found it to be extremely comfortable. Like a cushion on my wrist. Comfort is subjective.

    this is the question and I guess we will find out because if the rumor by Mary Jo about some windows 10 phone preview coming around 1/21 is correct coupled with the fact that I have no confidence in Verizon pushing out 8.1.1/Denim this month we will be the only people on the planet with a flagship device lucky enough to test WP 10/Black

    I bought lumia Icon and using it on a different network(Vodafone India). Is there any way to get denim update whenever it is released.

    I have already searched forums but did not find any specific answer.

    You should be able to get it via the Software Recovery Tool.

    The update will be available as usual from 'phone update' in settings. I've been using a Lumia Icon overseas on a different network since April 2014.

    This phone is an exclusive carrier model. The firmware is released when the carrier approves it regardless of any other place or carrier you use it with. So until Verizon says its a go, you will not be able to get it until then.

    absolutely not. Win10 for phones is a long time away... I'm not sure it will even be out this year. Win10 is rumored for a fall release, at best. And unlike win10 for pcs, microsoft will not want to send out a beta version to the public on phones (pfd for wp8.1 was the release version, not beta).
    LOL. We'll see if this prediction holds true. ;)

    Where did you get this app? I searched the store and couldn't find it... My Preview for Developers app hasn't updated either.

    Never mind...I had to dig like three levels to find it.

    You know what is really awesome?

    It's almost Build time again, and Lumia Icon still has no official WP8.1 Release with Cyan.

    A whole ******* YEAR later and NOthing.

    Question, is it really Verizon or Microsoft holding this release back?

    Is it time to realize that niether really gives a **** about those of us that invested in this device and platform?ii
    Maybe Microsoft is in over ther heads.

    Or maybe MS needs to come out in the open and tell Verizon to go **** themselves? Something I will be doing when my contract is up.

    Or maybe I/we need to jump ship and go to iPhone (never Android).

    Because Google is truly Evil and the sooner people realize this and stop using their devices and services the better the world will be.

    Side Note to all:
    The great masses in their infinite, ignorant trance of self indulgence, hatred, petty bickering, true intolerance and divisive division will be the end of us all. Head out of *** will allow better focus on trees in forest.

    I am starting to feel the same - it's ridiculous that we are made to wait for an update for so long. If they are so inept at organizing their carriers to roll out the update simultaneously why can’t they just wait till everything is ready to make an announcement? Now it’s like Announcement of an update in May happens in January, actual update starts trickling around in August with lots of disclaimers and a year later many devices are still left behind. If this is any indication we will be made to wait at least 2 years for the Windows 10 upgrade. #timetoswitch.

    For what its worth.
    I just got off the phone with Verizon technical support about problems I've been having with my phone.
    She asked if I've been having the problem since the 8.1 update. I told her the 8.1 is not out for this phone yet .
    She told me that it has just been released and I probably haven't gotten it yet.
    I don't know how much stock to put in to that
    Just thought I would share the info
