    I have been watching this thread for a couple of weeks now and have finally made the jump to Windows 10 for my Icon. I thought I would only have two options fast or slow channel but when I updated yesterday I saw a third option Insider Release preview. I chose that one and so far I think its great.. I was able with 8.1 to get two days on a charge so I will make sure I post how long a charge last with Windows 10, but so far no crashes or anything bad. So thank you to all the testers who made the jump first so that I may have a fairly good OS on my phone. I really appreciate it. I will post back to let you know how long I can last with a charge.

    Is w10 daily drivable on the Icon yet? Ive been wanting to try it but Im also not holding my breath that verizon is going to update the Icon with w10 anytime soon..if they ever do. So I think I'm going to try the preview but some of the performance issue, battery life and the like have kept me from making the switch.

    I have not noticed any performance issues in fact I think it is the other way around, I think my phone got a little more peppy...maybe its just me. As far as using it as a daily driver I only have my Icon for a phone it was either it works or I revert to WP8.1 and for me it was a nice improvement. The Bluetooth seems to work very good and battery life is not too shabby either. I still am getting around what I had for battery life with WP8.1 . It is a little less but not enough for me to complain about. I think the Release Preview is good based on what I have read others went through. I encourage you to give it a try. I was very skeptical to try it but now that I have I think it was a good choice. No hard resets no programs have crashed so far and the improvements are many. I do have battery saver turned on most of the time so that may play a part in battery life but I did with 8.1 also.

    Can anyone tell me if Quiet Hours has been updated yet to include "Turn on when I have a calendar event marked busy"?

    This feature and Bluetooth connectivity to my Toyota Prius were the two major things causing me to subsequently roll back to 8.1.

    Thanks!

    It doesn't appear so. All I'm seeing is the scheduled hours and the break-through options.

    I've been on the fast ring since the beginning, it's been stable the last two builds. Some apps, especially lock screen apps my cause issues since they are one of the first apps that run and control access. Try a factory reset and start with no apps and then add one at a time to see what works. Good luck ๐Ÿ˜Š

    My alarm never went off this morning, and when I picked up my phone and unlocked it, it gave me the black "Resuming" screen and wouldn't do anything else. Assume some app hung during the night and prevented Alarm & Clock from doing it's business. I did a soft reset to get use of the phone back but I'm losing trust in my alarm.

    For anyone keeping track, I had an issue with the alarm not going off after the initial update to 107 but it resolved after a soft reset. I still haven't done a hard reset since .63.

    QUESTION: When you folks are doing hard resets after an update, are you restoring a backup afterward or are you setting everything back up from scratch?

    Oddly enough, I had the exact same issue with my alarm this morning. Fortunately I also use an Echo so I did wake up since I had set that alarm as well (I had an important morning appointment).

    Update:
    So I have had windows 10 on my phone for about a week now and here is what I have noticed.. I did my first hard reset about 3 days ago. I was trying to solve a camera issue where when I took a picture and then went to look at the picture that I had just taken the screen would just say reloading and then it would crash. My hard reset I believe fixed this for now but we will soon see. I also noticed that after my hard reset the battery drain was really bad so I looked at what was draining the battery and I found that messenger+Skype was draining it a lot so I uninstalled Skype and made it so background use was not allowed now it seems to be draining a lot slower. Bluetooth works very good and so does the rest of the phone so far I have only noticed a few little glitches (living images does not seem to be working sometimes and then it is working again the next time I look at my photos) This may be the issue of the reloading screen when looking at new images in the first place not 100% sure. Everything else seems to be ok .. I am using build 10.0.10586.107 just in case anybody was wondering. My alarms seem to be working fine although it does not seem like snooze works it just shuts off the alarm, luckily for me I never use it but I needed to try it at least one time.

    Don't turn off background use for messaging + skype if you do you don't get alerts to text. LOL I guess something else is using the battery..

    My massive battery drain turned out to be a IMAP mail account. It was stuck syncing basically forever in the background.

    Build 164 has really increased my battery life, messaging + skype has really cut down on my battery usage.

    This morning I had an update for Mail and Calendar, nothing else. My battery life through the day today has been significantly better than since I updated to W10M. I only used 40% over 10 hours, and that is checking WC, email, surfing, etc. throughout the day. Any other day, I would have had to plug in to charge at 2 in the afternoon. I am so glad the battery issues appear to be fixed now, at least for me. Did anyone else receive the update and notice the difference today?

    Any idea whether W10 should currently be available for the Icon, if you haven't had a previous version? To make a long story short, I just did a factory reset and now my Icon is on 8.10.14219.341 -- I've never had W10 on it. When I go into Phone Update (with the Preview for Developers enabled) it tells me I'm up to date. If I use Windows Insider and select "Get preview builds", I get a server error ("A connection error prevented us from downloading programs for you. Please check the date/time of your device and its network connection and try again."). I suspect that has to do with Daylight Saving Time, because I can get around that error by manually setting the date to Saturday the 12th or earlier, but then Windows Insider still tells me there aren't any builds available.

    Make sure you select Slow or Release ring. Currently, Fast is for select devices which shipped with Windows 10.

    It may not receive the Windows 10 update. It's still under consideration. They better not drop this phone. It's a wonderful phone almost as good as the 950. =/ How are you guys feeling about this?

    Agreed. I haven't owned a ton of phones, but a few, and the Icon is hands-down my favorite. Just a really sweet phone with a great screen, features, and just-right size. I'm really hoping support will continue for it since I'm tied to Verizon, and what's the likelihood of them picking up a WP flagship?

    Eh, no big deal to me. My Icon runs awesome on 8.1.1. I have no issues with BT connectivity to my hands-free devices, vehicles or my Band 2. Cortana works perfectly. I can make calls, text, browse the internet and anything else I need to do. 8.1.1 is just fine for now.

    I realize some 8.1.1 apps may not get updated with the advance of W10, but maybe by the time that factor comes into play, MS will have W10m polished to the level of 8.1.1 and then I can upgrade through the Insider program or official OTA if it comes out.

    Additionally, people this is just a phone. Sounds like some of you are so materialistic, you're missing out on Life.

    First of all, I don't own a Lumia Icon, but it is quite a nice phone. Also, this phone isn't that old either, which is why it shocks me with its specs that it may not receive the update. My concern is that they're dropping a high-end phone overall.

    I think it might have as much to do with Verizon as MS. We switched from Att to Verizon about a year ago, bad move especially if you like windows phones.

    I think the issue is with Verizon. They EOL'd the phone last year, so they probably don't want to approve an update for a phone they no longer support. I think Microsoft is in talks with them, if I understand a few Tweets I read.

    That makes sense. =/ They'll "try" and push people to get new phones. What W10 line of phones do they have?
