    Edit i have been able to roll back to 8.1 after a long nite so thanks to all the info in the forms
    Cool beans. You'll have to wait a bit longer for Windows 10 Mobile though. It's not expected to be released to OEMs until Sep/Oct time frame. Which means it could be Nov/Dec, depending on the carriers, before the general population gets it. Of course, you could update again using Windows Insider around Sep/Oct. I'm not sure if Microsoft will release a "developers preview" like they did with WP8.1.

    This almost makes me want to install Windows Mobile 10...almost...maybe after a few more builds are released.

    Okay, so 10149 is still rather new, but after a few hours I can say it is running fantastically. I did have the issue with the passcode not working, so I gave it an hour and a half then rebooted and then I got in just fine.

    If you are having an issue with the store beta not installing apps, cancel all the downloads and then reboot your phone.

    The only bug other than the pin code not working (just like Windows 10) is i still can't send mms.

    Take it or leave it, this is a much better, much smoother, build for icon owners.

    I am curious about this. I've seen reports that it's intended to work for phones with "...displays of 5" or greater" as well as "...displays greater than 5"
    If it's the latter, that means the Icon/930 wouldn't get the feature.
    This is working in the new (149) build!

    Can you guys keep us posted with any problems you have with the Icon on build 149? I think i'm maybe one or two builds away from taking the jump.

    Hey guys! I installed build 149 last night and it is amazing! Definitely usable for a daily driver (if you can stand a few issues) so far. Here's what I've noticed up to this point:
    -Phone app crashes when swiping over to the dialer
    -The notification / action center icons start flashing for no apparent reason...when this happens, they don't respond to touch...hmm...rebooting seems to fix.
    -Can't quite figure out how to delete notes in OneNote. Maybe that's just me. I tap on "Delete Page" and nothing happens. Weird.
    -Swiping left or right in the Edge browser to go forward or back a page doesn't seem to be functional. Did they get rid of the feature?

    Surprises:
    -Reachabillity works!
    -The Edge browser is awesome!

    Overall...definitely "seems faster". I'll keep this updated till the next build.

    I installed it last night, having tried a couple previous builds for a couple days each. This one is really quite good. Some issues on mine include fast batter drain and really slow battery charge (10-15%/hr charge on wireless charger). Can't access background task settings to adjust this. Gets pretty hot. Loading screens here and there. QuizUp doesn't work. Still can't manually put in APN for MMS (I'm running Icon on ATT).

    I accidentally downloaded this build before reading the issues and the Google account bugs are a no go. I used 10136 for a couple of days but couldn't figure out a fix from MMS. This
    build in the limited time I spent is much faster all around. Once, they get the google bug fixed and can work on standby battery drain and overall improve the battery efficiency the builds will very much be daily driver ready.

    Biggest issues for me so far:
    Can't send MMS (attach picture to text and get immediate 'failed - try again', rinse/repeat, never successful). Wasn't a problem until I hard reset after installing last build. But the issue is persisting in this build.
    One app that I depend on (but can workaround using web) won't uninstall (greyed out) and store says its already installed - catch-22
    OneNote scaling issue makes selecting text or placing cursor very challenging
    Can't see where to set a unique sound for text - and incoming text often (if not always??) doesn't sound an alert


    Otherwise, its been really good. Lots of improvements and new features/functionality. Not to mention significant performance improvement. MS apps are finally live tiles, etc. The MMS is a pretty significant bug that I'd really like to have fixed but just send email if I need to get a picture to someone.

    Quick update to this. It appears wireless charging is not actually charging the phone. I will investigate more and let you guys know.

    QI works fine here... (in 1.5 hours my phone went from 16% to 55% tonight on my Nokia QI charger)

    I installed the newest version, I guess I am asking for trouble after the first 2 builds made my ICON 100% unusable. This one I had to hard reset after installing but, I restored from my backup on setup. I'm impressed over all. The OS changes are nice but the only thing I am really running into is figuring new stuff out. A lot of things are moved around so some things are not where expected.

    Even to setup an email account (other accounts were not under Accounts in the settings menu), I could not find it in settings, I had to go to the People hub and edit accounts to get it from there.

    Nice thing, a little buggy here and there but, seems solid over all, every once and a while I will get menus that crash (well just exit) but, over all it's pretty good. There seems to be some "dead ends" here and there, you will click on a few things (in settings) and nothing happens but, has not caused a major issue so far. Sometimes the menu (start screen) will show 1/2 way down (like you have the notification pulled down but, it's not) but, a hit of the Windows Menu solves that. You might find to need to reboot more often but, day one, seems over all pretty solid.

    The tiles are closer together and larger, so your picture takes more of the screen, I think the email and calendar apps are WORLDS better than before. The Xbox app is very nice but, still wishing to keep games in one place, not all over like it is now (miss the WP 7 option for this). The Settings menu has everything in sub menus, like in Windows 10, so finding stuff I don't think is as quick but, over all most things are fairly easy to find. Lots of little tweaks here and there, worthy to check out of you have an extra phone or really want to play taking a chance. I would select "BACKUP NOW" before installing, just in case.

    Speed wise, as fast as 8.1 with some sluggish spots here and there but, over all, as fast as 8.1 or a little better in spots.

    Problems that are affecting me right now...
    1. Battery is being eaten rather quickly (this was day one, so it might need a day or 2 to level out and I was installing apps for a good part of the day)
    2. Unable to uninstall Default WP apps OR Verizon apps (weather namely, as it's a known battery eater that came from the store), This is a first for Windows Phone where you cant remove an installed app. This is something I DONT LIKE.
    3. Loading screens are common here and there.
    4. Rebooting phone while plugged in via USB caused the touch screen to stop working
    5. Unable to send picture message or receive them (tried a few times with a few pictures all failed)
    6. Enabling developer mode "side loading" did not allow me to side load an app, needed to Unlock phone with Dev tools to side load an app.
    7. When upgrading (or in my case, restoring backup) I had tiles on the start menu for apps, when they were installed, the shortcuts were there but, they were dead, I had to remove and re-create them one by one.
    8 Where the HELL is call history ?

    Perks so far (besides OS features)
    1. I was able to get my Pebble watch working with the Pebble notifications app (claimed it didn't work in past versions) This would of been a deal killer for me, as I depend on this watch now (love it to death)
    2. I have unlimited data plan with NO Internet sharing. I tried internet sharing and it does work :)

    Over all, I think it's worth keeping on my primary phone, the Email and Calandar apps alone are worth it to me. I know I will have to live with a few issues but, if the picture messaging thing can be figured out, I think I can live with everything else at this point...

    Talk to me in a few days and I'll know for sure

    the mms problem is a huge deal breaker for me. Otherwise I would have installed this already in my icon.

    I've got a lumia 630 I play with for this. The latest build looked so good I really thought of installing it on my icon which is my primary phone for the first time.

    Just FYI,

    "Sometimes the menu (start screen) will show 1/2 way down (like you have the notification pulled down but, it's not) but, a hit of the Windows Menu solves that."

    That sounds like the feature that lets users with smaller hands reach the top of the screen. I think it's activated with a long press of the home button.

    ALSO! How is the update going now after a few days?

    1/2 way down, I think it was the Windows key or the Back key that resolved that right away. Not understanding the reason for it but, after figuring it out it was a quick fix.

    I restored yesterday, the SMS/Picture messaging thing was a deal killer, as if someone sent me a picture, I would get NOTHING. This is unacceptable.

    If I can get that one thing to work, I would reinstall it, the over all features of it is worth upgrading and the speed is almost like 8.1....worthy to try, just hit the "backup now" just in case..

    I decided to take the jump with the newest build, and it didn't go well..

    -For some reason a majority of my apps were just deleted. They were removed from both my home screen and the all apps screen. Things like Music, Movies and Shows, the Texting app (messaging), and so on.
    -I wasn't able to download images that were texted to me, although it looks like some others are having this problems too.
    -The buttons in the Notification/Action center would flash randomly, and some of them, like Flashlight or Airplane mode, wouldn't work.
    -There was a point where the touch screen stopped functioning and I had to turn the phone off for quite a while. Upon starting it up it worked, but it had to remain off for a while.

    I am definitely liking the way W10 Mobile is going, however I would advise against installing this build on your primary Icon. If you have an alternate phone, go for it, they need all the feedback they can get, but I'm unfortunately resetting my phone right now. I wouldn't say it's worth the risk.

    so I installed. It's not as fast as some members are saying but I can live with that. Battery gets eaten fast but I have a wireless charging stand everywhere so I can live with that too.

    However, the biggest things I am missing is OneNote. I can't find it anywhere in the store and it didn't show up in my Apps list. I also can't access it through OneDrive. I'm sure it's painfully obvious where it is but any help is appreciated.

    Also, how do I turn off conversations in Outlook?

    Yeah, I put it on an old Lumia 822 that I have as a back up device. It was super slow and laggy. I'm sure it's faster on an Icon with the obvious power difference. But still going to wait a build or two.

    I will not be using this build for my Daily Driver phone. It's on my extra Lumia Icon for now and I have hopes for the next build to be the one I use on my main phone. The difference between the first Build that worked on the Icon and this one is fantastic. If they make as much progress for the next build I think it'll be the right time to make the switch! Since I have a Primary and Secondary Icon, it's no bug deal to load the builds and see which one I put the SIM in as the DD phone.

    Just read through this whole thread - was wanting to try it out on my Icon, sounds like its soooooo close. Ill wait till the next release probably, I use MMS too much to not be able to use it. Also concerned with the battery drain, and such. I use W10 on my Dell Venue 8 Pro, and some of the older builds were so frustrating, I am finally happy with 10136, and am looking forward to getting W10 on my Icon.
