    Well and least they proved one thing...every phone that starts with "I" isn't an automatic success.

    I believe ICON has some bugs, and they fixed some bugs in 930, so 930 can get Denim.

    OK, so where do I get the DP? I'm giving in, and I'm willing to give the DP thing a try.

    If I knew it was going to take this long I would've done dp. But since we are so close (probably far away also) I am not going to bother.

    On the other hand, I like a carrier where my phone works where ever I go. Verizon has the best coverage for LTE hands down, even AT&T is not close when it comes to the locations where Verizon has LTE coverage. I can get LTE at home, over friends, at work, and about 95% of the places that I go, or need to go. My brother has a iPhone 6 on AT&T (he is interested in WP but, not flagship device and the 1520 is too big), and many times in the same car with him, he drops calls, when I have perfect coverage.

    There really is NOT a perfect carrier. Also there is the fact that people will b.i.t.c.h. at anything, even if there is not a valid reason, it's just human nature. It's one of those things, you cant do anything about it, so you have no choice but to deal with it...

    For the record, I am not under any contract with Verizon and have not been for over 7 years now (I actually think it's closer to 10 years)....
    Have you considered U.S. Cellular? They don't offer Windows phones AFAIK, but their coverage is nearly identical to Verizon and their customer service is top notch. The only reason I'm not still with them is because the service here is only 3G (using Verizon's towers) and they said I'd probably be unhappy with my data speeds. As soon as they put up a tower nearby though, Verizon can suck it.

    Did anyone have problems with losing data when they did the DP? I'm reading that in the TOS, so I'm just wondering if it's something I should be worried about. Especially since it can't be undone...

    I would bet this would be the WRONG thread for those questions but, I have not heard of any cases of data failure but, you never know. It could happen but, I would say over all pretty rare.

    Nope, I still have Unlimited data with Verizon....They can take that over my dead body....Unlimited LTE is pretty awesome, I use about 6-10gb a month and don't worry about watching data, EVER.

    It's the one thing I said "good" about Verizon, LTE pretty much everywhere....

    Before you install the 8.1DP, make sure you back up your files(photos, videos, and documents) to your computer. You can then transfer everything back, once 8.1 is installed.

    So... are we all willing to call it for today?

    Anyone want to guess when in the future Denim will show up?

    I think there may be some truth to there being a hardware error.
    There was a post on how the O2 rollout had "hello Cortana" feature disabled on the Nokia 930 Denim rollout.

    I don't have enough posts to link so google "snapdragon 800 voice recognition pocketnow" and you'll find a news article on how this also is affecting Android users.

    I can pretty much put these 2 posts together and come to the conclusion that there is an issue with the Qualcomm Snapdragon chipset that provides the "hey cortana" active listening feature.

    The 2nd news brief in the comments someone mentioned something about passive listening needing more mircrophones for noise cancellation.
    Dimitar Gospodinov • a year ago
    the Moto X has five (I think) microphones on it and they are not for noise cancellation.....you are forgeting that the CPU Core is not the only hardware requited for this feature to work.

    Dimitar Gospodinov • a year ago
    It's just three mics... One for nose cancelation, one for voice and one that's always listening... Creepy but cool as ice.

    Lucas Replicant Jason Booth • 10 months ago
    And the Lumia 1520 has 4 microphones and a SnapDragon 800 so theorically it should work too.
    Can someone confirm that the Icon has 1 microphone and the rest of the phones that support "hey cortana" have multiple microphones to provide noise cancellation?

    You're not missing anything. I responded to the post about the Lumia Recovery tool being updated and the implication that it was possibly due to Denim being released today.
