    So I have a lumia 830, unlocked, registered with the insider program, but it says there are no preview builds available.

    Am I missing something?

    thanks

    In order for you to have that option, a build had to be available. Catch22. If none are available, then you don't get that option.

    Like in Windows 10 for PC, there are two release routes. Fast and slow.

    Fast is well, faster, with more updates, but the increased of those speedier updates breaking something or having more bugs.
    Slower is more stable. Although at this point there is no slow I think?

    You have to be using Windows Insider app. Not old Preview for Developers. When you set it up it lets you pick Fast or Slow update process as far as how often and how stable builds you are willing to install.

    I'm having the same issue with my Lumia 635. I am using the new Windows Insider app and there are no such options.wp_ss_20140521_0001-1-.png
    "Logging-in" brings me around to the same page.
    Here's what I get when I select "About:"
    wp_ss_20140521_0002-1-.png
    I wonder if the process wants a SIM card to be present...

    Indeed, inserting the SIM card got me past the provisioning part of the Insider app where Fast or Slow are selected so we can see that it's required for that.

    The Insider app apparently requires a SIM card to be installed to provision the device. I had the same issue on my Lumia 635 "backup" phone. Installed the SIM and rand the app again and it gave me the choice between Slow and Fast. I made the selection and then restarted without the SIM so that I can keep connected while updating. Checked for updates (I selected "Fast") and it took off displaying "Checking for updates..." for several minutes and now it's downloading! :)

    EDIT: Check your time and date. I don't know which phones this is true for but when I start my phone with Automatic time/date set and no SIM it starts with a default date of sometime last year and I noticed that caused a problem with another step in the update/restart process just now. Turned Auto Date/Time off and set the clock and it's continuing.

    I definitely would not recommend updating to windows 10 Technical preview unless the device you are planning to update is backup or something of that kind.

    Interesting. I wonder what was the difference then b/c I had even restarted without the SIM. Oh well, one of those YMMV things I guess. Glad we got it working.

    I've got the same problem, no builds found on Lumia 730... Phone is not branded, just I bought this phone several weeks ago. Any ideas, how to get preview? :-(

    I too have this problem on my UK Voda 830. Have tried with SIM in, SIM out. Reset my phone to 8.1 not using a backup and still no joy.

    Could it be a problem that we are in the UK, perhaps?

    Lumia 535 is not supported by Preview for Developers right now, so this is okay ;) you'll have to wait some time for new W10 updates

    Aye...but 830 is supposed to be.

    Same issue here with 830. Tried to change location to United States, to United Kingdom, tried to remove SIM (not possible since the card has stucked in the device obviously). It is really annoying me that the device is supported - only not mine (and the device of thousands of others)

    Are you signed up as an Insider (https://insider.windows.com/)

    Yes I am. Signed up as an insider with three accounts, each in different location. Phone is not activated for preview for developers, it is unlocked. Ive just tried to do hard reset, but it didnt help either.

    Microsoft are aware of this issue. I have a Lumia 830 CV RM-984. For some reason the Insider App isn't giving tech preview builds to the international variant of some phone / running particular RM's.

    It's meant to be fixed today I think...

    And your primary (setup) phone account is one of those? Odd.
