    Hey WPCentral forum users, I'm facing a difficult decision. I have the ability to get 8.1 on my phone now. However, if I do, I will have to factory reset it and loose all my app data, my precious app data. So, give me your opinion. Upgrade or wait? Please circulate with your friends.

    UPDATE: there is a 90% chance I will keep my data.

    I have a friend at Microsoft who works on the updates. He can send it to my phone before it RTM's.

    This doesn't sound fishy to anyone? You are telling me you have access to something that no one in the press, to our knowledge, or Wpcentral has access to? Proof, show us proof.

    I can't show you, but he works in updates. I wouldn't be allowed to update if I showed anyone. Ask me a question and I can answer it, though, if it's not secret. Besides, I don't work with the press.

    My advice to you is to wait. Dev preview could then be out, and you could keep your data. Less risk, plus, you avoid some of the bugs that remain, that are now being fixed. One question though, why would you potentially lose the data? How does your friend's way of pushing it to you differ from the way I would receive it by normal means? Surely they don't write the program to add a new update in the week after it leaves the core team? Surely that part would already be in place?

    I'm afraid not. I was hoping for it since I saw it on Windows 8, but still not yet. Perhaps it's too complicated for a phone.

    at times, it is much faster IF you have plenty of memory.

    So, I actually wouldn't get the 8.1 that will be RTMed. It is the Microsoft development version, and has features like reporting bugs that the public won't get. I loose my data because it has to have a factory reset to remove that once it goes to the public. Also, dev preview is out in a few weeks, around April 14 - 27. Sorry for the huge range, just confidential the exact date.if you want to know mare, check out this app and the companion for Lumia Black, if you don't have it already. Keep asking these questions!

    Oh yes..start making a story...we all will start comments...and then that poor guy who is going to share with you..MS will catch them same way how they did the other guy last week!! If all this is based on those 2 apps you have links, I think there are better things in WPCentral world.

    Naa, it isn't that great. Just wait and enjoy your phone for the last couple of weeks until the Preview's ready. :)

    Oh no, this is all allowed by Microsoft. I would be helping with bugs. And no, I do know more than he has posted there.
