    Hi. I'm a new WP user. My current device is the Lumia 925 (T-Mobile). I've got my Lumia to the Update 2, & now ready for the WP10 update. But I was wondering if anyone with the same device, tested W10?

    P.s: I am sorry if this in the wrong place...

    At this stage, the early testing builds of Windows 10, which you have signed up for, are not fit for normal use.

    New Windows 10 Technical Preview build now available for phones

    If you're worried about breaking stuff, you shouldn't have done what you've done.

    But don't worry, disregarding the chance of spontaneous combustion, it'll probably install fine. However if its your only device you probably want to revert to Windows Phone 8.1.

    Hey there. Yeah I know that this only for testing purposes, which I don't mind trying out. 9x outta 10 I'm not going to continue the update because this my only device. I just wanted feedback for my device. So quick question; under my update status, I have the option to download the W10 TP. I don't want to continue forth. So should I leave it as is? Or as you mentioned, I still have to revert back to 8.1?

    I had to do the windows insider a couple of times on my L925 (with reboot) and then it allowed me to update. Keep trying!

    Should I proceed with the update, can I stay where I am, or do I have to do something like, revert back to whatever?

    Managed to get Windows 10 installed after updating to 8.1 update 2. The new default camera app is messed up. It shows several small windows of the same object (like a series of frames of the same photo) I am aiming at instead of one large rectangle. Not useable to frame a photo. Switching to the old camera app works but really want to try out the new Windows camera app.

    Yea same happens on my 920, have to use lumia camera app now until it gets fixed by hopefully an app update

    Is there a way to set the lumia app back to the default app when pushing the camera button?

    I installed it on my 925 T-mobile version and am already looking to revert. It is completely broken and barely usable. Not working with my band, brightness control doesn't work, can't even change my background photo.

    Yeah.. Still no luck so far. My main phone currently is redmi 2, so I have no problem updating to W10.. Only issue is I can't update it..

    Yeah, as another user posted the "camera" app is not working for me but "lumia camera" is working just fine. My default camera was set to lumia camera before I updated to w10, so maybe it carried over.

    It took my phone a very long time to update after the download, so if any of you are wondering just give it time!

    W10 is very interesting thus far

    Yup! Same with others here, I've found Windows 10 for Phone (at this point) pretty un-usable for the 925. The most I can say it's able to do is install.... aaaaand that's about it. Doesn't access my cell network, camera doesn't work, menus and apps broken, like... its pretty bad.

    But I guess I'm more amused than disappointed. I'll just downgrade to 8.1 and wait for a more stable build. No biggie :V

    Guess I'll play with it for a few days and then downgrade to 8.1 and then upgrade to 8.1 update 2. Runnining that on my other 925 and seems to work well.

    You can install it.

    I was having a little bit of trouble getting some of the functions to work but once I hard resetted the phone and started over it stopped bugging out. I guess when you upgraded it kept some reminiscences of 8.1 which was interfering with 10, so resetting the phone takes away all the 8.1 stuff and works like a charm.

    Oh and with the Band issue. You have to manually unpair and pair the band to the phone again for it to start registering it properly

    Is it possible to get the 8.1 update 2 without getting the windows 10 tp as well?

    I'm not confident.
    I think it automatically starts the setup, then will inevitably install sometime later.

    I gave installing it another shot and found myself more successful this time (like it could actually access my Cell network and all that okay)... but I still want to hold out since certain parts of the build were just REALLY buggy.

    Including but not limited to:

    -The camera not displaying correctly in the native camera app.
    -Certain menus "whiting out" when I'm trying to change/mess with options.
    -Some menus having no workable landscape/portrait modes.
    -The outlook client randomly adding some mysterious email account that's a bizarre string of letters, numbers and characters.
    -Scrolling being very inconsistent. Sometimes its smooth, sometimes it's like trying to move syrup, sometimes it'll just suddenly jerk to a stop mid scroll.
    -Certain app functions not wanting to work at all even if the app loads.
    -Accessing the store seems to be impossible at times?
    -General sluggishness in opening apps or just using basic OS functions.

    Basically, its enough to confirm that the Technical Preview isn't something you want to be using on a daily basis, at least for the Lumia 925. I imagine since its older hardware, Microsoft has to do a lot of wibbly wobbly configuration to make sure it works well enough to at least be stable, but for the moment, I just can't find enough reason to keep using it at this point in time on a phone that's my daily driver.

    But perhaps such things will change as more builds come out. One can hope at leas :V

    I've experienced literally all the bugs you listed there. I stayed on the W10P TP for like a hour or two & then went back to 8.1 immediately. Seriously can't wait for a stable build or the final release.

    I experienced this all but when I did a hard reset and started using it from a "Fresh" backup, most if not all of the bugs you mentioned were remedied. It's quite nice to use after the hard reset.
