    Is anyone else's phone staying forever on the Checking for updates ... message? I'm assuming the servers are hit hard but it's frustrating. :)
    When I have developer preview box checked, it takes like 5-10 minutes to "Check for Updates" But eventually it went through. Installing the update now.

    Not to rain on anyone's parade but a word of caution. I was on DP 8.1 and I used the recovery tool. It failed with error 0x80131500 and I'm stuck in a boot loop where I wind up with a red screen with arrows. Be careful....
    I had the same issue as well. Here's what I did to fix the issue:
    1. Exit out of Lumia Tool Recovery
    2. Go to Control Panel and uninstall the program
    3. Download the new Lumia Recover Tool provided here in WindowsCentral.com
    4. Install the program again and then it should stop that error message

    50% through the gears screen now :)

    If I have DP still enabled, does anyone think I will have to roll back to black 8.0?

    That's how it's always been with PfD enabled actually. Not sure why.

    Heads up the OTA update puts some Verizon apps back on your phone. They can be removed however.

    I got this phone free back in Sept. and was totally content with it. Then I started reading this forum... thanks all for making me check almost daily for updates over the last 5 months.

    My gears are currently grinding away. Did anyone else have to go through it twice? (I didn't have DP.) The first update went super fast, and the second one is taking a while, but I am being impatient, ha!

    This gives me hope, got the same error many times but will keep trying. Thanks for posting.

    Still nothing, I'll hold tight till 2:30, no update, then I will just flash it. I was getting an error downloading updates from the DP, so this might not even install OTA for me, Waiting to find out, didn't want to hard reset...YET

    Its so nice to see those gears turning, isn't it?
    Maybe, I picked up a used Samsung device, It had the gears of death, endless gears even after a hard reset and everything else.

    For today, wish I could see them :(

    For someone that installed the developer's preview to get windows 8.1 on Lumia icon....what is the general consensus about the best way to go about installing the new official denim update/windows 8.1 from Verizon?

    Should I turn DP off? How should I go about this...? Any guidance is greatly appreciated.
    Go to the PFD program, open it and tick off where it says to enroll. That should do the trick. Then check for updates. You might want to soft reset the phone just to make sure you have unenrolled.

    Should be an option to turn it on and train it in the settings.

    In an ideal world, that'd be great. And I'm sure in the future it'll be a real possibility. Particularly as the FCC continues to weigh in on network & band types. Smartphones need to be recognized and treated as what they truly are, pocket pc's. They're not simply phones anymore. I think unlocked universal devices will be the norm soon in the US. That said, I don't think this is nearly as big a step towards that end as you think it is.
    I would have to disagree in part. The network infrastructure is owned by the carriers; they've invested millions of dollars in the development, security, and improvements in those networks. The FCC has to walk a thin line when it comes to regulations. Yes there is statute law that governs communications, but there is constitutional law that supersedes that. The FCC can write and modify regulations that will seem to be in line with the statute, but inadvertently run afoul of the Constitution. In other words there is a fine line about what the US government can or cannot to. More regulation is not necessarily better.

    Let's say the FCC comes down and says, "Carriers. You shall not block updates to phones, because it violates the fair use clause. You will also allow devices from other carriers to be allowed on your network, regardless of hardware or OS configuration." By doing that, the government has now added a huge financial and logistical burden on to the carriers. They would be required to support pretty much ANY device made. There is a reason the carriers support a limited amount of devices. It would be like McDonald's being forced to make Whoppers for anybody who asked for one. McDonald's would have to stock the ingredients to make Whoppers on top of the ingredients to make Big Macs.

    To the average person, it seems "black and white." In reality it is much more complex and to be a bit clich, there is a "50 Shades of Gray" when it comes to the dance that is done between the carriers, the customers/end users, the government(s), the OEMs, the OS and software developers, and how best to balance it all out.
