    I'll be using a Samsung Galaxy 7 Edge by then, complaining about not having the "n" upgrade yet. ;)
    You'll love it.

    I just made the final payment on my Icon, so I can move without any penalties or payments to VZW now. I've been watching the 950XL on Amazon, and they have the international single sim (I.e. the less troublesome version) for under $500 now. Just waiting for the right time to pull the trigger and switch to AT&T. I'll miss the stronger signal, but AT&T is well represented in the Tampa Bay area. I'll suffer a little with a weaker signal at work, but I'm tired of Verizon's BS. It's just not worth it. Not only that, but I can get the same type of plan, but with roll-over data, for $20 bucks less, or about the cost of making monthly payments on the phone. In other words, I can move to AT&T and get a new phone, with roll-over data, for about the same as I'm paying for service alone at Verizon (roughly $70 after the Icon was paid off - $90 before hand).

    So VZW can kiss my bent over posterior as they lose a long time customer. Congrats, bozos!

    Oh, and I got to play with the 950XL a few days back at the new MS store in International Plaza. Not sure why some feel it's not a high end feeling phone. It feels every as solid as my Icon (and this was a much handled floor demo unit), just without the metal. My Icon has a bunch of little dents from drops on the metal frame, so I'm not so sure the lack of metal is actually a bad thing.

    wow please chill

    honestly I just see it as a generic non-committal response while they wait for VZW to "consider" the phone.

    or they could just be buying time for people to buy Icon's before saying no.
    Although it's not being sold anymore...

    Why ? People here are PISSED off about it....The 930 that is the SAME EXACT phone besides CDMA enabled on the ICON AND it's the top 3-5 top phones on Windows Phone (same as the 930) as CPU, camera and feature set.

    The first batch the 930 gets it but, we get pretty much BLACKLISTED by Microsoft because we are Verizon customers....

    Yea, I am ticked about this....getting screwed again by Microsoft and being a Verizon customer

    They are BOTH at fault....

    I know this doesn't mean much but given that he said "select device**S**" and the only other phone on Verizon that was updated to (but I'm not too sure has yet received) W10M was the 735, I'm still holding out hope.

    https://community.verizonwireless.com/thread/907239

    Following the situation on Twitter, lots of people have asked Gabe Aul for an update and none have received a response as of yet.

    Let's keep our fingers crossed.

    Is there such a hack ? Only problem would be that it would not support CDMA....

    Forgive me for asking the obvious, but... Because the Icon hasn't gotten the official Windows 10 update, we cannot try out the redstone builds?

    The combination of (probable) no upgrade path and lack of windows phone options from Verizon (the only carrier I can get decent coverage with) finally pushed me over the edge and sent me back to my Note 4. Not a happy camper, since I've always preferred WP, but I'll be eligible to upgrade in November, so we'll see what's available then. Gotta say, with the way things are shaping up, it ain't looking good.

    My Lumia 950 XL came in today. So I drove on down to the corporate AT&T store nearby and switched my line over from Verizon. It's done. My Icon's wifi was getting more flaky anyways, and I don't know if that was software or the wifi going bad. In any case, Verizon lost me today. Thankfully, I'm in a well covered area for AT&T. I know there will be times I'll miss Verizon's signal, but I don't like being held hostage. So far the phone works great, and I'm loving it. Need to rebuild my start screen and load up all of my apps, but it's noticeably quicker than my Icon. Actually fits in my pocket better since it's thinner.

    Hopefully, MS and Verizon will get this phone updated so that it can continue to be used by others for a while longer.

    Are you saying you got the official update for the icon?
    Interesting... I just installed the version that is being sent OTA...

    Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
    I apologize for the confusion...I didn't actually say I got it OTA from Verizon. I said, I got the version that is going to be sent OTA as the official build. (10.0.10586.164).

    There is a third option now in Windows Insider, called "Insider Release Preview." I don't think the Icon will get the "official" update from Verizon. Verizon's update life cycle is generally only two years I believe.

    I presume that "Insider Release Preview" is essentially the same as the old Developers Preview program. Does that clarify it a bit?

    interesting thread I may give it a try on my Icon especially now since my Icon has been relegated to my backup phone since I got a s7 edge recently

    I wouldn't feel comfortable running it on a daily driver if the Icon was my only phone but it looks like this may be the only path to get redstone on the Icon because I have 0% confidence that the Icon will get any more support from Verizon/Microsoft

    Yep...Pretty sure I'm leaving too. Not getting any further builds made me start seriously looking at the situation, and I realized just how rarely I see a Windows Phone option for apps I'd love to use. Called VZ, I can upgrade early (not scheduled until January) as long as I turn in the Icon....which is why I'm kinda hesitating - I was thinking of keeping it and going back to 8.1 just for the camera and video, but I think I'm leaving for my VZ store soon to pick up an S7...

    I have since switched to the 1520 since I am using T-Mobile (and was having issues with the Icon on T-Mobile), but I decided to try the registry hack on my Icon since I wouldn't be out anything if it didn't work. Changed phone name from Lumia 929 to 930 in the registry and it updated just fine to the latest redstone build. Pretty sure this will work to stay up to date with Windows 10, even if not officially supported.

    For those of you still using your Icon I would give it a shot. Seems like you could change the name back to 929, restore via recovery, then upgrade to 10 if it's ever officially supported.

    Running the same build on my Lumia 1520 and the performance is identical.

    Hey all, thanks to a heads up from reddit, give the Upgrade Advisor app a try again. The message is different now . . .
