    Sorry, i am still a proud Windows Phone User. And i never moaned or had bad words about the process. But now, i am too at the Point where i can only say: I cant hear "soon" anymore. I CAN'T Believe why they havent first finished the Problem with this Partition stitching for the first wave. I am 100% sure that most of the real Windows Phone fans that will try this preview have the high-end phones like 1520 and 930. *sigh* i am also a big MS fan, but this combined with all the other things (doing more on Android and iOS) is really disappointing for a fan, and i could understand completely when some Folks are thinking of switching.
    You nailed it. Most people WILL be trying out the preview on high end phones, and if they break or brick, then they have to hard reset it (if possible) or buy a new one (if they can't get it replaced). Sure, Microsoft is doing the cheaper phones first, but they are just that, cheap phones. I'd prefer to replace a cheap phone that may or may not be my main phone instead of replacing my $500+ phone because I joined a program that had alpha software and gave Microsoft a bad name for ruining my phone.

    Sure, it sucks, but I understand where they're coming from.

    Well the list of supported phones is different on the Croatian website.
    It says:
    - HTC 8X
    - HTC One M8
    - Nokia and Microsoft phones that have:
    * at least 8 GB of internal storage
    * One SIM card slot (dual sim phones not supported)
    Attachment 96712
    i dont understand when lumia 730 is dual sim supported how is that then dual sim not supported?? does that mean my phone will work only o single sim??

    If there a-holes didn't sit on the information of what phones the preview would be available for, people wouldn't be moaning. I don't blame the "moaners." This **** is ridiculous. Anyone who knew this info, and didn't let the poor people who went out and bought "high-end" devices for this know, is a c*nt.

    GSM support
    So basically if you are a normal USA smartphone user, (unless you're stuck on verizon/sprint for whatever reason) you can't make any calls or texts basically?

    I agree with some that this should have been held off a few more days if it meant appeasing a larger group of people waiting (primarily 520, 620, 720, 820, 920, 930, 1520, and M8 owners.)

    They still have to work on their partition stiching thing for the new no-restarts dynamic update process, although I'm not entirely certain its either that its not yet fully functional or its only been completed for that range of devices that can get it today.

    Well they have functional prototype code for it, that's how they were able to run the demo 1520 during the 1/21 event.

    As for the problems with it, that's anyone's guess. Hopefully nothing that extends the wait until March.

    I'll give it a week before jumping in. I know the risks, and this is my only phone. But I want to make sure I leave plenty of feedback about what I liked and didn't liked. I want to help make sure this becomes the best OS release ever :P

    Or at least till it supports GSM, I can't make calls or texts without that, or get cell data possibly. So the current build is worthless to me... x.x

    Here is all:
    - start screen is buggy and so slow
    - apps are opening very slowly
    - action center is buggy too, there is no option to choose quick toggles in expanded view, no data toggle
    - store app is the same, outlook and lockscreen too
    - there is no way to quickly answer to messages as I can't drag bar from the up
    - phone icon is larger
    - settngs menu is very nice
    - file explorer is new and has new icon

    I'll post more later :)

    Okay, I know that's because of what you quoted from another user's post, but seriously, I didn't see that particular part in the blog under the currently known issues. Where is the source for the GSM issue?

    Sounds like its not worth it then anyways. This is the first Preview OS they've released with so many present issues. How they're so slow 🐌
    with this is beyond me. Maybe they should be more like Apple and keep things quite until its more ready for consumers

    Windows Feedback app too.

    Known issues


    Messaging is currently missing a number of features you might use in Windows Phone 8.1, including dual-SIM support, search, message drafts, sharing voice notes and ringtones, Bi-Di language support, international assisted dialing, spam filter, viewing all group recipients, reminders and quiet hours through Cortana, multiple attachments, and GSM support. If you use these features regularly, youll want to wait to install the preview until we get them into a future build.


    Cortana is only available in English (United States) for phones. In other locales, youll get the standard search experience.


    The Rooms feature is not available in the preview. Youll still be able to get to your photo albums, calendars, and notes, either on the web or by using other apps on your phone. You wont be able to see your chat history or send or receive any new chats. If you have important info in your Rooms chats that you want to keep, save a copy to a different device before updating your phone to Technical Preview. For more info, take a look at the Rooms FAQ.


    Some text in the preview will not yet have been translated into all available languages and will only appear in English. This text will be translated into all available languages by the time the final product is available.


    The Phone app doesnt have Dual SIM support or spam filtering in the preview.


    Accessibility features are still being developed for Windows 10, so they arent fully functional in Technical Preview. If you depend on features like Narrator while browsing the web, you may want to wait to update your phone

    any 730 owner, please confirm if you can access both SIM cards (for making calls, sending messages and data connection) after installing W10.

    No ETA for partition stitching, fantastic. That means end of Feb/beginning of March most likely.
