    I read today that 930 had some serious bug while testing 10, possibly related to screen (hardware) and that's why it isn't on the list. MS is supposedly working on it.

    Upd. I know Icon is on the list, basically the same phone. I'm just telling you what I read

    ​There's no winphone 10. There's a technical preview. Which, expectedly, has bugs. There is no definite answer as to if/when the bugs will be fixed. There's plenty of rumours and most people would agree that MS would hope to have it sorted in time for the release of Windows 10. But, as with many things in life, there's no guarantee.

    "That is the good news. The bad news is both the Lumia Icon and Lumia 930 will not be a part of this update round due to a bug with device scaling. Of course, this will be addressed likely for the next-next build, but not for this one."
    I dont know what "bug with device scaling" was exactly mean. Is the L930's screen too different with others? With l930 users like me, it's unacceptable

    A delay to early insider access to a free technical preview is "unacceptable"? Wow.

    This is ridiculous. I already had tried the first WP 10 preview using the trick on my lumia 930 and did not find any issues at all. it was working without any issues. I have no idea why microsoft said that they found bugs... I have been disappointed since the very first day of purchase when i came to know that this phone (35000 INR) does not support Glance Screen. was this device was just a mistake made by them?

    That's the problem MS is running into with these public previews. Imagine how people will freak out when they realize that they can't use the preview builds for the rest of their lives.

    I am personally not sure if MS is doing itself a favor with this broadly available preview programs, to much people are using it that don't know exactly how to handle such programs and what to expect.

    I think MS have covered it with many warnings/click-throughs before the installs can happen.

    I know it and you know it, but how many people are reading those messages really? The people complaining about bad experience on their daily drivers and delayed new version don't.

    1 You did not find any issues in the preview on your 930.
    2 You only found out that the 930 did not have glance AFTER you bought it. But it is and always was a well known fact that the 930 has no glance.

    So considering that you did " not know" the 930 had no glance gives me a very good indication how valuable your first remark is.

    Honestly I'd be upset if I bought a 930 as an enthusiast and got left out of an enthusiast program later. Unfortunately that's the name of the game (pre-release software that isn't always going to function properly on certain phone models.)

    At least there's only 3 phones left out this time as far as I know.

    If at&t released the Lumia 930 and not Verizon and it's so called icon we would of need a better support for the phone in the US.

    It's not an update, it's a limited-release technical preview of a forthcoming OS. But no, Icon isn't included in this round.

    I do not know if any of you are podcast listeners, but on the most recent "Windows Weekly" (episode titled Windows Phone 3.1), Mary Jo Foley stated there was one bug that MS was working on for the L930 that they were going to iron out before the W10 tech release could be 100% functional. There is no advantage to release a bad tech preview. MS wants feedback on the operation of W10, not a bunch of complaints about the preview.

    No one here can answer you. This is not MS but a user forum.

    This is not an update but a technical preview update you are not 'entitled' to it. People seem confused by this idea.

    It's likely the next W10 TP will allow for L930/Icon phones going by what has been said.

    You will get the real W10 update when it's official later this year so I don't see your issue.

    You can't filter "Stupid" and people can only do so much in regards to informing people on what they should or shouldn't do.

    I can only show you the door Neo, you have to open it.

    Some people are shown the door, they then reach for the door knob and right at the last second they slam their face right into it.... Then bicker and moan about the door not doing what they expected it to.

    ----------

    In regards to the other comment in here about how the hacked version of W10 worked just fine on their 930 but now there's a bug that prevents the newest update from working....

    ... Well that earlier build was designed for lower end devices and a very select list of those low end devices. Different things such as screen resolutions, multiple microphones, speaker types, LED / AMOLED.... Etc. May not have been developed dynamically for the higher end phones and therefore many of these new bugs didn't exist.... Even still, this preview wasn't given to the other devices at the time because of how many features were either not optimized properly or simply didn't work. Once you activate one or two of those features for your device that the lower end ones didn't have to deal with, and suddenly you have some serious bugs pop up.

    I'll admit, it's frustrating that my 930 is going to miss the boat.... Again.

    It's also frustrating that a few months back I gave my 925 to my wife's cousin whom last I heard still isn't using it and is just collecting dust, so until I get that back, I can't test on that either.

    My wife doesn't really want to jump in on the W10 preview at this stage with her 1320.... So I am currently left with my mother in law's old 625 with the cracked screen she left for us to chuck away. It's not overly cracked but just a bit on the upper left side of the screen, so as a testing device, it will do, but I would prefer to test on a higher end device like my 925 & 930 as they would best represent what I would experience on a device level I will be sticking to.

    Either way, it'll be ready when it's ready.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I need to take a closer look at a door knob.

    *thud*
