    Just put it on the 830 (AT&T). It took a LONG time. (Like more than an hour-this is why they tell you to plug it in.) But everything seems to work just fine. All my apps are there, the start screen is the same (with a few new icons), all my docs, contacts, texts, pics, bookmarks, are all there.

    Things I've checked out so far:
    • Double-tap to wake-good
    • wireless charging via Nokia DT-900-good
    • Texting-good
    • IE-good (and snappy)
    • Office-good
    • Spotify-good
    • OneDrive-good
    • Maps-good (traffic works)
    • Email-good (Exchange and Yahoo)
    • Calendar-good


    New Stuff:

    • New Cortana screen. Looks nice. I'll have to explore some of the features. Also has a new large tile, which is cool, though the live tile doesn't seem to be updating with news stories. Maybe a setting?
    • New pictures app. Much nicer.
    • Settings menu. Looks nice, lots to explore.
    • Keyboard. Much nicer, though the little pointer thingie doesn't seem all that useful.


    Issues:

    • Had to re-enter wifi password
    • Tetra lockscreen buggy (won't update Bing photo, lock screen appears after start screen. Might just disable it.)
    • Got weird messages about updating downloaded maps.



    None of these things is a big deal. The phone works, and I like the update. Thanks, MS!

    Haven't seen any yet, but scrolling isn't as smooth as it was before.

    Can you change start screen to how it was like on 8.1?
    It was 8.1 style until I changed the background.

    Also, if Netflix wasn't working om your 830, it will with W10. For that reason alone I will keep W10 on the phone if at all possible.

    Just finished loading it on my 830. I'm quite impressed so far. Little sluggish but that's just fine. I can't send a picture in a text. I thought that was limited to one but it's not working at all.
    What's really impressive so far is that when it reloaded my data and apps, everything is working like it was. I couldn't even tell 10 was loaded when my phone first booted. When I've put on major updates before, the apps would still be loading or something would be out of place. Quite an impressive feat.

    Happy so far. Oh and WAZE still works. That was crucial to me. And loving the keyboard. And responding to texts when notifications pop up.

    Check your APN and manually add it if necessary. Maybe APN settings got lost after upgrade and mms is not working for you.

    Once it all comes together it should be very usable. That's about all I can say for now.
    On my Lumia 635, much of the fonts (like in Photos) seem way too small, and everything is a mish-mash of different styles, like on/off toggles being different, the "long press" menus having a new design, etc. Apps also crash every once in a while, but it's actually very usable as a day-to-day product already.

    I trust that once all the UI elements get a unified appearance, things will be pretty great.

    You'll have to uninstall Skype and reinstall it to get it to work after upgrade to the TP,just a heads up.

    I know, the new windows logo comes on when turned back on, also the 'good bye' is moved to the left of the screen and not centered anymore.
