    I need the official rollout NOW.

    The dreaded Sim card issue has decided to move in. Meanwhile, I am on preview for developers, which voids the warranty. So you and I both know that the 8.1 preview has nothing to do with the Sim card issue, but it doesn't matter. If they would roll out the official update, then I would be back into warranty and I could RMA this thing.

    This has been a glowing endorsement of reasons NOT to use preview for developers...

    Correct me, if I'm wrong, but I'm quite certain Joe Belfiore posted on Twitter that it actually doesn't void your warranty. Didn't even WPC write an article about that?
    But even if it did, as long as you're using a Nokia, you're good, since you can restore your device back to WP 8.0 using the Nokia Tools.

    I just found a link that shows Microsoft plans on releasing it on June 24. I wonder how long I can let an RMA box sit on my counter before I send the old phone back.....LOL

    If you're using a Nokia, it's no problem at all. The tool will flash the WP 8.0 ROM to your device and you're good. You should be aware though that it'll wipe your device.

    This is making my day! I really don't want to take any chances on these guys making me pay for a new phone, so I do want to flash it back to 8.0. But I am having a hard time finding the tool you are talking about. Do I need to get an app? Or is it a computer download that I have to plug in through USB?

    You use it on a computer and plug the phone into it.

    Using developer preview does not void your warranty as confirmed by Joe Belfoire as well as WPCentral forums. :)

    Yes it is, Bing or Google "Nokia software updater for retail" and download it and plug your phone into it and follow the instructions on screen.

    OK, I am going to not bother with flashing back then. I will be another test case for returning a Nokia under manufacturer warranty with Preview for developers. I'll let you know how it goes. I took the phone in to Verizon and they tried a new SIM card and it didn't work, so they set up the RMA right there. My phone is 2 months old and was never dropped. Nokia is going to send me a new phone with a return package for my old phone. My fear was that I would get a bill in August after they do their analysis. If they don't do that crap, I will be a happy Windows phone guy again. This is a make or break for me.

    Yea there was a post written on WP central about the developers preview and it was mentioned that it voids your warranty. You can check this out with any service centre bro ๐Ÿ˜‰
    I am sorry I forgot to mention that it voids your operator warranty...not your phone ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I swapped my 1020 running 8.1 at AT&T for a 925 and they never said a word about it. I'm thinking they probably just wipe and reflash them regardless before resale.

    What about non-Nokia devices? HTC and Samsung WP devices received the official GDR3 faster than the Nokia devices with the Black update (the modified GDR3 by Nokia).

    Well you're beta testing so if the beta/developer preview damaged the phone then yes it would void the warranty as it's not official. The chances of it doing damage that isn't repairable by reinstalling an official release though would have to be low enough, although yes there is a risk.
