    Guys, I had this same problem.

    I bought a 640 yesterday, just to see if it was worth it to leave my Note 4.

    I played around with the phone, loaded some apps, just trying to get a feel for it.

    I then downloaded the windows insider app and started the upgrade. It got about 90% complete, and failed, saying that there was a problem with the sd card. (It was almost empty, but I had verified it was working prior to running Windows Insider. I did nothing to try to get the update to load on the sd card.)

    I did a hard reset on the phone and then tried to download the update again. At that point, I got the same server error that you are getting, mentioning the date/time error.

    Over the past 24 hours, I have done about 6 hard resets, trying different things. (no sd card. no sim card. Not allowing any of the auto software updates that occur after a hard reset.

    What finally worked for me was to download Windows Download Recovery Tool to my desktop computer. I loaded it up and plugged my phone into the computer. It recognized the phone and gave me an option to reinstall my software (8.1)

    To be fair, the first two times that I tried this using WDRT, it failed, saying that it couldn't update my device. On the third attempt, it was successful doing the reload.

    At that point, it went through the normal reset process. When it completed, I downloaded Windows Insider. It started normally, and let me pick the fast track.

    I then went and checked for an upgrade in the Settings screen, and an OS upgrade is downloading. The download is at 74% as I type this.

    I have no idea if it will eventually work, but I did get around the server error, so maybe you can, also.

    I will update when mine is either successful or unsuccessful.

    Good luck.

    FYI - the download and installation finished last night, after what seemed like a couple of hours, but probably just over an hour. Win 10 is a vast improvement over 8.1, but is a little slow on this processor. But I expected that going in.

    Now I just have to use it for a week or so to see if it workable for me. I haven't found a decent ebook reader yet. I can live with the work around for Google Music. Not being able to deposit checks is a hindrance.

    I suspect that i will give Microsoft 4 or 5 months to see if the app situation is improved, then spring for a 950xl, or whatever the flagship is at that time.

    Good Luck guys.

    Turn off phone, then hold vol down and put charger in usb. Wait till an ! mark appears,
    Then follow the sequemce: vol up, vol dowm, power, vol down. One key once, not togheter

    You missed one month ago the official news abpout Insider Release Preview deprecating Windows 10 threshold for the new Redstone, so all older uneligible phones were kicked off.
    Only way for you is the registry hack for acting your phone as a different eligible model.... e.g. a 1520

    thank you
    Some people said unrolling insider program could bring back phone to last Win10 threshold build available

    EDIT: I confirm you. Go to Insider, 3 dots, ABandon Program, wait, and check for updates when asked. It works, you can download the .545 last threshold update

    Bought a lumia 650. Yesterday installed the anniversary update and now I want to enroll for insider preview.
    Searched for how to do that and found that I first must install Windows Insider app. But that is not needed anymore, the app displays that the functionality has been moved to Settings app with a link to the settingspage of the WIndows Insider program.

    My account was already linked, did enjoy insider previews on my previous lumia 820.
    So hit the get started button. Then a loading message is displayed and after a while a page is displayed "Get insider preview builds".
    Some text on it and 2 links (privacy statement and program terms).

    But no buttons to continue getting the insider preview.

    Anyone?

    I tried scrolling (swiping from left to right and back, and from top to bottom and back) but no buttons.
    Can't try again because now when I hit the get started button is constantly displaying the message that I'm not connected to internet. But I am, all other apps needed internet are working.

    [update]
    Button working again, but no scrolling available to buttons

    I bought 640 XL non LTE version yesterday. Updated from 8.1 to W10m 10586.107 to anniversary update successfuly. No issues occurred at all. Now I want to enroll to Insiders. so downloaded "Windows insider" app from store. Then it said this featured have been moved into "Settings". My account was already linked as I used insider builds on L720. But when i click "Get started" in settings>Windows insider programme on 640XL, Loading screen shows up with dots rolling and message "This wont take long". But then it says "Connect to the internet" and says "Your phone isnt connected to the internet" even when i am using internet on edge googling and downloading apps from store which works fine. I've tried with 3G network but same msg appears. No idea about this issue. Please help. No Hard Resets please.

    Edit: Ok what worked for me is I just unlinked my microsoft account and relinked again ( while relinking it showed me two options one of which had my profile picture for outlook account and other was titled "Microsoft account" and has regular 4 colored window pic. I chose the former one). Issue solved. I was able to get enrolled and downloading 14393.82 right now.

    Unfortunately not the solution for me. Neither is a restart of my phone.
    Maybe it is disrupted by my previous enrollment on my lumia 820 which stopped updating when official w10 mobile was released.
