    I have downloaded the Windows 10 TP update and it is ready for installation. In phone update it shows it will be automatically installed on 15th April at 3:00 am. But after reading negative and horrifying experiences from people who have installed the update already I have changed my mind. I do not want to install this update anymore. Can anyone tell me how do I get rid of this already downloaded and prepared for installation update???

    Right?? My 1520 isn't prompted for W10. But my girl's 925 is being pestered by that update which she doesn't want..

    Isn't she able to get out of the insider program? I guess she has the same problem. We need to find a way to leave the insider program, because uninstalling the app doesn't work.

    I have an idea. If I wait until 15-04-2015 and change the date to 14-04-2015 just before 3:00 am and once the time is past 3:00 am, change the date and time back to correct date & time, may be the update won't be installed. I'm not sure if this will work. But I'm really getting anxious now, about what to do.

    May be I'll take a backup of my entire phone and just install the update. Then see if the worse things happen and have to use recovery tool to format it! That way if the installation is unavoidable on 15th, I'll be better off seeing how it looks on my phone and then format it now than waiting until 15th and doing the same thing.

    Uninstalled, rejected the terms after, and did a soft reset. :/ She has no PC so if her phone bricks, she's SOL for a while. I'll post here if I find a fix!

    I imagine it'd update after you fix the time..
    Definitely back-up your phone. If this is your daily driver, I wouldn't recommend keeping it. I have it on my spare L530.

    I want to know too. I think I'm not ready for this TP. My 920 is my only and daily driver.

    Did u uneroll from the Windows insiders I think that what they suggest when the first build is released. And since u have a 920 did u get the gdr2?

    GDR2 was my original plan on updating but no luck. I got the Windows 10 update. There were some hiccups but so far so good.

    I did not unenrolled from Windows insider. I still don't know how.

    I'm just curious... Why did you all enter a program where developers can preview state of the art technology with all the bugs that come with such software?

    Well, honestly, my main reason was that I want to have the latest update. Others, I want to test and experience the latest update first hand. I want to be part of the change, say what I want and don't like. Provide feedback all for the betterment of the OS.

    But, I should have the option to withdraw my subscription, or cancel the update or something like that. Maybe there's a way and that is what we here in this thread want know.

    I have a 635 dedicated to test WP10 and thank god... Is just an awful experience. They need to release 10 more versions I will say to even reach Beta quality.

    The only way to stop the update is to reset your phone. I installed Update 2 and then performed a full reset, Update 2 stays but the phone doesn't pick up any new updates :)

    I have the same trouble. As for my 1520, yesterday I installed wp10tp, today I have restored the phone to wp8.1, then started downloading update, and deleted windows insider while downloading. Now I have L1520 with GDR2. My problem is when I tried to do the same with my wife's L822 that has wp8.1 GDR1 with Denim, it downloaded wp10 at once without even try to have 8.1 gdr2 first. How to cancel the setup? It will be set up automatically on the 15th of April...

    All I had to do is uncheck automatic downloads from the settings>>update menu and that's it, no hard reset was needed. This is on a 830 BTW

    I'm wondering as well how to prevent this update from installing... my L630 DS works perfectly with GDR 2 and I don't want to restore my phone and reinstall apps if the TP is too unstable (as others seem to say). Uninstalling Windows Insider did not work, neither did soft reset, if anyone else can suggest anything... thank you
