    I have download the app free after that it was an update, it was free too. So are you sure for the account payment?
    You won't be able to use app until you have developer account. And for developer account you need to pay. :)

    False, you can get a free App Studio account that let's you use 1 phone developer unlocked.

    If Nokia says your under warranty, then you are.

    There is no downside, you will get the latest updates. However your warranty us void. You will still be able to download the 'official' version when it comes out. The official version is basically firmware.

    I see lots of confusion and some false statements in this thread. Please look here for information about the Preview for Developers program:

    Read the post that I linked above. The Preview does not void your warranty. Explanation is in that post.

    Thank you for posting that. I've had to post to so many people that the wording is MAY not WILL. I can't figure out why people feel the need to post information they haven't researched properly.

    To be honest though it's becoming more and more common. With the rise of social media and quick fix journalism and such I've noticed even the smartest amongst my friends giving out bad info because people seem to no longer pay proper attention to detail.

    If I were more OCD about things I'd track it more carefully, but it has become a disturbingly noticeable trend...

    Once again though thank you for coming in and providing good information. :)

    People skim over something and think they are experts, rather than actually researching it and finding out what they didn't catch in skimming over the subject. More critical thinking would benefit our society.

    If you were closer to 'Wershington' and not down in 'Jawja' I'd buy you a tasty hop-filled beverage of your choice Rich. :)

    There's no need to pay for an App studio account (which is the account needed for dev preview)

    I didn't say it wasn't safe but there were many on here that has issues with the GDR3 preview. Then again, people had issues with the official release.

    I'm just trying to point out that the preview may or may not be an issue on your phone. It won't have any Nokia extras and the firmware won't be right for it. So it is a 'use at your own risk'.
    Agree with you 100%...this is a major update, and the developer preview does indeed carry more risks with it than the carriers official update...I'll be waiting for a while.

    Actually the update mechanism used is the same...so there's just as much risk either way to be honest.

    If anyone wants more details I can post them, but I'm trying to be more concise these days.

    The closest thing to a hop-filled beverage that I drink is Virgil's Root Beer, but I appreciate the offer! Been to DC once, and dream of taking a couple months off work to go through the museums and other sites and giving them the time that they are due....

    The risks using the Preview for Developers is identical to the risks waiting on the carriers. There is no difference. Believing otherwise is to do yourself injustice.

    Ah, all the way over on the left coast! Well, maybe one day I'll get up there. Closest I've been is to Idaho once. Was beautiful, but it was FREEZING! It was at Christmas time!

    That's a funny coincidence. The furthest east I've been is Idaho...and I really want to change that. I've been stuck on the west coast my whole life. Anyhoo I don't want to get us in trouble for being off topic. PM me anytime you want to chat. :)
