    I'm contemplating updating to 8.1 via the developer preview. Rumor has it that it will be available 4/14. I'm considering it - anyone else?

    I most definitely after I had had to wait for the Lumia black update for five long months.
    In addition I am dying for the calendar week view and the new volume settings...

    I'll update if I know it won't remove wifi calling first... I need it seeing that the signal in my apartment is really bad. Does anyone know if updating will remove that? I'm really tempted to though.

    Definitely grabbing the update as soon as I possibly can. Mostly looking forward to the new keyboard, it's the one thing I miss from my Android days. The transparent tiles/background looks interesting too.

    I also would like to know if pushing 8.1 early will break Wi-Fi calling on my T-Mobile 925. I'm tempted, but since there's no going back, I'm not sure...

    Seeing that Microsoft didn't even finish wp8.1 kernel until a couple weeks ago and are supposed to be just finishing the UX areas yesterday, and the closest rumor for it's release via Dev Preview is 4/14..
    Did you mean you're using Windows 8.1 (as in the PC operating system)? Or are you confusing WP 8.0 gdr3 with WP 8.1??

    I think he just meant, he's been using the Dev Preview program since then, not WP8.1.

    T-Mobile has WiFi calling which is an option on some phones to make calls over WiFi instead of cellular. It's main benefit is where there is WiFi but no or poor cellular signal. I don't know if other carriers do it or if its available in Europe.

    Don't want to brick my phone. :) I figure there's about a 1% chance that happens. I'm sure I'll do it - just curious how others felt about it.

    The build last time was the same build that was released as GDR3, so really there is nothing to worry about it

    Yeah, I updated to GDR3 the day after I got my phone on T-Mobile but before it was generally available. I knew others had jumped in with no issues. Expect the same this time.

    I thought about doing it a while back, while still waiting for GDR3. There were a number of reasons I was holding back: didn't know the process, didn't want to lose my warranty, unsure about the available support -- basically, ignorance and fear.

    Well, I went ahead and signed up for it now a few days ago because I didn't want to wait for Microsoft's indefinite "this summer" time frame for the awesome 8.1 update. I'm finding I was worried about nothing. The process is super easy, literally took like 5-10 minutes. Not worried about warranty anymore because my phone is almost 1 year old, so there's no manufacturer warranty after that anyway. Not worried about support either because, well, they made the process very easy and opened it to just about anybody that wants to do it, which means that it shouldn't be very risky or dangerous.

    Overall, I'm happy to have made the leap and can't wait for the 8.1 update in (hopefully) less than a week!

    There is the same chance of it happening even if you wait for the carrier version to update. This isn't a beta they are releasing. It is simply called the developer preview because developers can get it in their hands and run on an actual device before the general public does.

    This is a Microsoft approved, fully baked release.
