    As much as I really want to try it on my 930, it seems to be a bit of a mess at the moment, which is to be expected with pre-release s/ware. Although I'm really keen, I'll hold off until it's a bit more polished.

    I would not install it. I forgot to remove Windows Insider from my phone and it downloaded the update. It was going to force it so I installed it with the intention of immediately restoring it back to 8.1 Fell asleep and the update installed, this morning recovered back to 8.1, and now my LTE radio is bricked. Windows Software Recovery Tool nor Lumia Software Recovery Tool work to get my LTE to work again. Everything else works when going back to 8.1 except data now.

    EDIT: Turns out there is an LTE SIM Registration process that has to occur before the LTE will work. Idk when this changed because I could've sworn that after hard resets/software wipes, I used to be able to just pop my LTE SIM into my Icon and internet would just work.....

    Got everything working, except two things
    1. Mms - I'm in Canada, and while the access point install/uninstall worked with 8.1, it wont even install on this build.
    2. No live tiles at all. I can't get a single one working. Just all the same all the time. Annoying, but ol well.

    Does anyone here actually have a solid install experience with it ?

    Just install besides a few tweaks after install everything is running as it should (accept a few issues here and there)

    Haven't tried this myself, but from thurrott.com (I also am seeing error with screenshots but not sure whether its saving or not):

    If you can’t take screenshots, do this. Many people who upgraded from previous builds noticed that screenshots weren’t working right. There are two steps to take. First, go into the Photos app ensure that screenshots really aren’t working: Sometimes you’ll see an error message, but it’s still taking shots. If they are not there, tether the phone to a PC, and, on the PC, navigate to the Pictures folder on the phone and then delete the Screenshots folder. Then, reboot the phone. You should be all set.

    I just rolled my 1520 back after testing 10080. Going back to WP8.1 after 10 is like going back to your old girlfriend after you realize the new one is crazy. I know, it's just a preview build.

    First of all...I'm going to love Windows 10. The taste I just had of it promises many cool things.

    However, I'm going back to 8.1 on my Icon after accidentally (YES ACCIDENTALLY) installing the update yesterday. I see great things but as my main phone this isn't ready. I made sure to check out all kinds of items and provide feedback though.

    My suggestion - hold off.

    Gave it a good shot but going back to 8.1. Worked good for about 6 hrs then performance degraded very fast. Did a soft reset & went back to reboot loop. Hard reset, worked for 20 mins & screen & capacitive buttons froze. Soft reset, back into reboot loop. Reverting back to 8.1, when it worked it was usable & I was able to send some feedback but it is to unstable on the ICON to even test.

    DO NOT INSTALL, EVEN FOR TESTING TO GIVE FEEDBACK

    Well that was fun. Tried rolling back using the Windows Phone recover tool & it failed repeatedly. Downloaded the Lumia recovery tool & it worked like a charm.....

    I just hard reset my 1520 with this newest build. It booted up with ONLY the IE tile on the home screen and half the "Settings" were in my All Apps column... Lol. Wtf. This build is terrible, btw.

    My phone was acting crazy on 8.1/Denim and I was thinking about doing a factory reset, but then they released this Win10 build, so I took the plunge to check it out. I've been pleasantly surprised! I'll probably still reset back to 8.1 eventually after the newness wears off and the bugs become too much to handle, but I'm loving it so far! I know a ton of people are angry about the direction MS is taking with Windows 10, and I wasn't sure how I felt after looking at the screenshots, but using it great. Obviously there are still quite a bit of inconsistencies, but you can tell where they're going with it, and I can't wait until the final product is ready.

    I had exactly same problem..... I found the cause of this problem but still I don't have any solutions for this.
    Apps are blocked from running in background. If you go to battery saver > usage, and check the apps, you will see that none of the apps are allowed to run in background. There is no way to turn this on.

    My icon stuck at loading for a week. Couldn't find app. But can receive calls or make call through search/cortana. Text cannot get through in any way.Posted a the situation on ms community website this afternoon. Just now, the phone recovered for some reason. I could see the start screen and all the apps. Can text. But lost my email account information. Cannot use enterprise mailbox. It seems ms merged 2 mail apps. still buggy and looks weird. But, it'S usable.

    Updated my ICON last night from 8.1 and I couldn't be happier. It's super smooth and it looks great. There are still bugs but it works really well even on my daily driver.

    Make sure your phone is charging or it won't download.

    Does anyone have an estimate of how many Icons were sold?

    At what point will it be "possible - advisable" to use Microsoft Insider program to "upgrade our Icons" to Windows 10 and "forget Verizon" and rely only on Microsoft?

    Or, is that just a stupid pipe dream ?

    You cant forget about Verizon, they will create the firmware that will optimize the battery, radios (so you get LTE, CDMA, etc) and other hardware features on the ICON. Microsoft only provides the OS.

    Sure you can just update to the Dev preview and use Windows 10 on your phone, that will work but, the tweaks to run fully wont be there, meaning battery and other hardware features could suffer.

    The point where you can almost forget about Verizon is after/if they release Windows 10 Mobile for the ICON, and with the phone being discontinued almost a year from now, I would not hold your breath about getting it.

    I would actually be shocked, as tons of Android users phones get cut and 3 months later a update comes out that they never see. I think there would be an outrage if we got it for the ICON...

    You might actually be stuck on the Dev preview for life if you want Windows 10.....

    Welcome to Verizon wireless
