    Gears: for Windows Phone 8.1 install. The Lumia 920 is waiting.
    I'm considering doing a reset before 8.1. Anyone else considered resetting their Windows Phone for this? Its what I would do when I install an update to Windows. I rather not do upgrades. Better a fresh and full install.

    Haha these gears always freaks me out. I don't want to see them when I update. I am thinking to do a fresh install (I don't care for saved games , I don't play them anymore ).

    I will do a reset once the update is complete so that I can get rid of the other storage I have :p

    I *might* do a reset after the update but right now I'm thinking I'll just see how it goes. If it's running well I may just leave it alone.

    Same here. I also might. Of course that'll depend on the mood. If I'm in a fighting mood and want to redo everything, then hello gears

    isnt just the same? If you reset your phone, current settings will be backed up and restored once update is done ๐Ÿ˜

    however, I do get your point, you dont want to wait that long once the update is installed. , ๐Ÿ˜Š

    Going to reset my 8X before and after the 8.1 update I think. Had some troubles with draining battery and other hiccups when I updated to GDR3, better start fresh imho. Won't reset my Lumia 928 though, that one seemed just fine.

    My phone is out to Nokia for a swap, I should get it back mid to end of next week. So, sad to say, I dont think I will have a choice besides doing a clean install. Setup phone, unlock, setup dev tools, take 8.1 then install all my apps....

    And the worst part of this....right now as I NEEDED a phone, I have a old Verizon XV6875 Touch Pro 2 that I am FORCED to use(per my wife)....Windows Mobile 6.5 !

    I will do a reset *after* the upgrade - that way it even clears out odd and bugged files from new install.

    Before and/or after.
    OP does it before, I do it after. Its just an OCD. If you don't have it, don't infect yourself.

    not sure about this though.

    I've read somewhere that we can back up app datas on onedrive. Is it included on 8.1 update or there's a capability at WP8 that I am not yet aware of?

    I dont want to lose my game data. Specially RAYMAN fiesta run!!

    I feel you on the game data. For me this update is more important than any accumulated game data. I don't want there to be poorly developed app interfering with 8.1. I'm already worried that my Lumia 920 might not be up to snuff for this update so I plan to reinstall my apps with some patience.

    I usually reset my phone with new updates. Almost feels like I get a new phone, but if I do it this time, I loose 6tindr. Like last time I lost Swapchat haha

    I think resetting after an update is overkill on windows phone. Its a clean OS, not much clutter, just delete any excess apps and do a little spring cleaning and you're good to go

    Hey, it's a bit of OCD creeping in, that's all.

    Personally, I never (hard) reset my phone (unless there's a major software problem). It's tough living without a microSD card. I let the update take care of cleaning up for me.

    A hard reset isn't a bad idea along with this 8.1 update (before or after). Tis the only way as said above to clear out that "other" storage. Not to mention the space needed to download and install the update itself.
    Oh and thank god we have a progress bar with those gears now eh?

    I will do a reset before and after. Before, so that all my data gets deleted and the "migrating data" step is fast. After, because I want to start afresh with 8.1
