    i chatted with a verizon rep this morning and they said the official windows 10 update for the icon was most likely coming, when windows 10 mobile officially rolls out later this year. May not mean anything, but it's better than nothing!

    So I once-upon-a-time had an Icon - today I picked one up again for a second try.. I've read through the thread but I've been away for a while. Could someone give me a quick TL;DR? I'd like to do the preview/insider for W10 when it gets here, but what do I need to know for dos and Don'ts? Thanks!
    I did the same a couple of weeks ago. When you first sign in to WP8.1 skip the restore. It'll make the W10M upgrade faster. I skipped the MS sign-in altogether until the phone was fully booted. Then added my MS account and installed the Insider app and started the upgrade process. Once W10M was installed I did a factory reset (again, no restore) and was off and running.

    After playing with the 950XL at the MS Store, I decided to take the plunge to 10. Wi-Fi won't work. Doing a factory reset now - hopefully this is solve my issue.

    So the factory reset was the key - everything works fairly smoothly. I've only been using it for a day, but I'm impressed. We'll see how day to day works out and I'll likely have to tweak things to my liking. If this remains stable, I couldn't care less if Verizon offers an official version.

    FYI - I jumped on the slow ring (serves me well on my laptop), version 10166. Any benefit to move to the fast ring?

    I am on the last Fast Ring Build and it just KILLS my battery...I've tried every trip and trick out there and just over time the battery life gets worse and then random reboots from time to time...fingers crossed for this build this week to be good otherwise, I just have to go back to 8.1 just to have a workable phone...But I'll miss A LOT from Windows 10 for sure...Groove, Outlook, Settings, and the little improvements...

    I reverted back to 8.1. The battery issues, WIFI and some other thing pretty much made it unusable for everyday use. I'll wait for the official rollout. But being on Verizon that pretty much means I'll never see it. I do like a lot of the new features in WM10. It really is a big step up from 8.1.

    Has anyone tried 10549?

    If so, is it worth going to if I am still on 8.1 and have not done any insider builds yet?

    So twice now my touch screen as stopped responding when someone called me - couldn't answer! I'm not sure I can live with that bug. Otherwise, battery life is about 80% of what 8.1 was, although I didn't turn off too many apps from running in the background. I'll give it a another day or so before I decide to revert to 8.1, or maybe go on the fast ring and try the latest.

    I'm having issues rolling back to 8.1. Tried using the Nokia Software Recovery tool but it says my device is not supported and I need to use the Windows 10 device recovery tool. However when use that, it says that I have the latest software available. Am I missing something?

    It is normal to say it has the latest version in the device recovery tool. Just click reset software or whatever the button says and it will download and install 8.1 again. Just did it myself to install new build.

    Don't use the Nokia recovery tool - that's for non-Windows Nokia phones. Use the Windows Device Recovery Tool.

    And I'm back to 8.1. The slow ring's version was too buggy. I'll wait until the next slow ring version is released.

    On another note - wow restoring to 8.1 was FAST! My internet speed helped a lot, but flashing the 1.6Gb file was really quick!

    I'm liking it so far. My favorite feature is Settings>System>Display>Size of text, apps, and items. I've gone with the middle setting which gives extra tiles on the start screen and smaller fonts, which I prefer.

    See how it is in the next 12-36 hours...once mine settled, it was half-way decent last night...of course, using the phone for a solid hour can almost drain it...

    After seeing how much faster and more stable the 10549 build was on my Lumia 635, I decided to go ahead and put it on my main device too, which is the Lumia Icon. I did a full hard reset after installing.
    So far I'm happy, but I've not used out that much yet. It runs just as fast as 8.1, if not faster actually (just like on the 635). It still has several smaller bugs and some more major (like I can't install any non English keyboard dictionary), but no deal breaker so far. By far the best and most stable build so far, way faster than 10536.

    You need to reinstall the insider app and sign up again to fast ring, then you can download the keyboard, I did it already

    Thanks for that tip! I searched but couldn't find an answer! Worked perfectly.

    Loving 10549 so far. Battery drain is mostly better than 10536 (for me)..at least when the phone's not in use. When in use, it's slightly worse than the last build - from 6am to 11am, I lost 34%, usually lose about 28-30% in that period. Cortana seems to have no effect at all on battery for me either.

    Wow, I must really have bad luck. I was fed up with the lack of start screen on 10536, so I rolled back to 8.1 so I could get this new build. I flashed 8.1, went through the process without restoring a backup, then installed 10.10549. After that, I reset the phone restoring a backup, and man, am I disappointed. I may be wrong, but the start screen problem seems worse. I would hope that it would be better without restoring a backup, but man, resetting without restoring a backup is such a pain...

    My brother just went to 10549 on his Lumia 635 and it seems faster than my Icon running 8.1... I am going to wait a while and see if he runs into issues, but does anyone else feel 10549 is faster in places than 8.1 is?

    Personally, I am going to wait till next week's build if I am going to test it out on my Icon. Maybe they will fix the Cortana background usage issue and maybe enable "Hey Cortana" since I find myself using that occasionally (if it is disabled in 10549, correct me if I am wrong on that).

    Yes, Hey Cortana is still disabled in 10549...and yes, I do miss it :)

    Just setup the current 10549 build. More tweaking and updated needed for all my basic apps.

    This is on my 2nd Icon and I did not use the phone after checking out the last build which I was not happy with. I put my sim card back in this one from my other Icon running 8.1. I will give this a few days to gell and settle in before I make any opinions on the current build. I know some have mentioned after a few days battery life got better and a few things started working after fresh install.

    Glad I can still download and install Lumia Camera Beta from the store.
