    I can't download the W10 TP from windows insider.(I'm already an windows insider)

    This is the steps I follow :

    I press ''get preview builds'',
    then I choose ''insider fast'' for the updates,
    then accept on the ''confirm'' screen
    Then it says done, it reboots and actually just reboots as if I turn it off and then back on...
    No gears, no downloads no nothing.

    So I'm wondering has anyone else download the technical preview successfully in the dual sim Lumia 630?
    Because the windows support page doesn't mention if the dual sim models are supported..

    Thanks!

    I'm actually downloading the update, what you should do is..
    Go to the Windows insider app
    Follow the steps
    Reboot
    Once you rebooted go to Settings-> Update phone
    And check updates

    I had mine in 8.1 so first it updated to 8.1.1..
    Then I had to follow the same steps as before and when I went to "check updates" under settings started to download the update.. Nor going about 30% it seems to be quiet a big file

    Follow the exact steps I did and make sure that you have signed for ''windows insider'' first!
    Then follow the steps from her3814..

    Sorry but I'm a cheap ******* and I never had 3g running in my phone so I don't know if it's possible..
    Search in google If it is possible and if not, go to a nice coffeeshop ,drink a huuge coffee and let it download!

    I has just installed the TP... At the beggining it behaves quite laggy.. But i'll keep trying it, some UI elements are weird but they should receive a "face washing" in a future update i hope..
    Hope this Little info helps i have a Lumia 630 (single SIM)

    Sorry for my bad english, i'm from Argentina

    I've also installed the preview as her3814 mentioned yes it is tiny tiny bit laggy start screen as well as app list scrolling (apps are working fine)
    during the transition the the theme color flashes for 1 second or so .
    the dialer is too small , not only dialer ... some more of the UI elements are small...
    looks like one of those buttons when you changed your desktop resolution to ultra
    you cant use the back key anymore to return from app list to homescreen ... have to press home button or swipe
    there is a new thing called a cursor mover ... in the keyboard ... a red dot .. if you press and hold and slide like an analog joystick
    settings menu is way more organized
    now you have a built in file explorer also
    the article is already here on WC

    so far so good ... nothing 'bad' happened on WP10

    here are the screenies

    Exactly!
    I stayed for exactly 1 day on W10TP , and from this morning I'm back to the silky smooth W8.1 cyan :P

    I've got to say, installing W10 and then reverting back to W8.1 was way easier than I tought it may be..
    even the bookmarks on IE were still there!
