    Hello peeps,

    I held back from updating to Windows 10 for many days and yesterday night the curiosity was too much to bear. I went ahead and installed Windows 10 on my over two year old Lumia 820. So how was it, you ask?


    Absolutely nothing worked.

    - Sim card not detected, so no internet.
    - Tried opening the caller app - crash!
    - Messaging app - crash! didnt even stay open for a second
    - Calendar - Crash!
    - Wifi - Did not detect any Wifi signal even though there was one.
    - Spartan - I was not able to check anything out because I had no access to internet because of the Sim card and wifi issues
    - Mail - I was not able to add my outlook account.
    - Photos app- It was blank. I waited for 10 minutes thinking it was updating the photos but no, that didn't happen.
    - The only thing I WAS able to do was take a look at the settings UI. :P

    Overall, bad decision to update. I thought I will give feedback to MS after checking out the OS but I did not get a chance to even open any of the apps to check.

    Using the Recovery tool, I am now back on 8.1.

    Anyone else trying to update on an old phone, that too a daily driver? My advice, DON'T! Please!

    It took me whole night to get things right again, with memory card, back up and installation issues. I am now in my office with a sleepy head :D

    Have a read around the forums. All those issues are discussed - and fixes for most of them. You may want to give Technical Preview a re-try at some point.
