    I noticed this morning that I could download Windows 10 preview on my HTC One (M8). I am a Verizon Wireless subscriber. Has anyone tried yet? Any thoughts?

    1 thought - do you have a fallback ?

    Interesting because it's not supposed to be available and isn't on my AT&T M8.

    Nah, I think you'll only get Update 2.

    There is an update to 8.1.1 that the M8 didn't ship with, this is most likely it and not even 8.1.2.

    If I knew that for sure, I would gladly do it. Another reason for me asking around first. Great thought. Thanks.

    Thank you starsocccer9. Just to confirm, your phone is a Verizon HTC One (M8)?

    Curious starsoccer9. I have tried for weeks to get this notification without any luck. Would you know why the rollout is not consistent?

    Not sure what notification you mean.

    I have been on windows 10 since the first build was released and have been trying since the new build to get onto it with no luck.

    Its available for my (M8) AT&T model but afraid to download.....does the window recovery tool work for HTC if I need to rollback? I want to try it!

    First off, the update you are getting is most likely just a fast ring configuration update not windows 10.

    second, the recovery tool does not work, but there is a method to go back if you want to

    so..... after continuing to try, I have finally downloaded it and installed it. Currently the only major issue I have encountered is once the screen turns off you can not turn it back on via the power button. You have to do a force reboot(soft boot) in order to get it to turn back on.

    As we speak I am doing a hard reset in hopes that it resolves the issue.

    Sorry for the lack of clarity. The notification I was referring to was that Windows 10 preview was available for my device.

    A few more questions starsoccer9. Do you use the device as your primary phone? If you are on a network, how well does it communicate with others? Does your phone operate in a business environment? I am not trying to be nosey, but my device is an integral part of my private network. Thanks for sharing all of your observations.

    well I have only had windows 10 on it for a few hours but I have not noticed any major issues. I mean it feels a bit sluggish with some apps and opening and closing.

    The only major thing that I just recently noticed is the screen. It appears to be on even when I press the screen off button. This might be my imagination tho.

    Also having just received a sms, I am not sure the sms notification sounds are working but I cant confirm that.

    Respond to your questions,
    It is my primary phone.
    It is on verizion and seems to be working fine.
    I have not touched any workplace accounts or anything if that is what you are referring to. I also have not setup email yet as I am letting it finish downloading all my apps but besides for outlook not offering black theme, it appears okay.

    Thank you very much for providing your observations.. Please keep me posted. I am particularly interested in how it handles your email. If you have no complaints over the next week, I think I will take the plunge.

    Okay, yea email seems to be working fine, but I will say I am about 95% sure the screen stays on when your press the power button and it just shows a black screen.

    Thanks again starsoccer9. The screen issue is novel. Have you reported it? Did you get a reply?
    I will be following any additional comments you might have over the week.

    well I am disappointed to say the least, but it broke and I have had to revert back to windows 8.1.

    Basically I rebooted my phone as it was running a bit slow figuring a reboot after reinstalling all my apps would speed it up. After reboot it booted fine right to my lockscreen at which point all touch stopped working. I tried a few more reboots with no success.
