    Not sure if this link is allowed, so in case it gets zapped, you essentially download Windows Insider, check for updates, when it finds one make sure it update 2 as opposed to WP10, then delete the Insider app (to prevent it from going for W10 immediately after installing update 2), then install the update you just download (after you've confirmed it is still 8.1, and NOT 10).

    Windows Insider app delivers Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 to any handset which does not support W10M TP [Update: Here's how to get WP8.1 Update 2 on any device without going for Windows 10 Technical Preview] - WMPoweruser
    Thanks! :)

    You decide to do it, report back. It didn't look like there were enough features to make it worth the effort.

    That was 2 weeks ago, you can't get Update 2 now via Insider for the 830 AND the list of handsets which will get Windows 10 Mobile TP include the Lumia 830. If you do that: "fast track" W10 will download eventually and you can't stop it. You won't get Update 2 that was a glitch.

    Great info - thanks for posting!

    Personally, as soon as WP10 includes office, I'll go ahead and bite. I've had it on a 635 for awhile, and I liked some things, not some others. But, I need Office on the daily.

    Well I have the same phone but as MS was being slow with the rollout I flashed to the Rogers ROM and have been using Denim since a couple of months*.

    Rogers, Telus and Fido ? sent the Denim update OTA in or around March 17, not Feb 20.

    Lol you seem to be very specific with dates. Do you know I had a prototype 830 on which I had flashed the RM-984 ROM on? Then I flashed it with the Brazilian denim ROM which was released almost a week or two before the Rogers release. So yes I've been using the Denim ROM for a while, almost 2 months

    OFFICE is a OS app already on the 830 look in Apps

    In WP10? I thought it currently did not have Office, but was possibly in the next release after some recent leaks.

    OK, so does Insider currently go straight to Win10, or does it do Update 2 first?

    Good luck in getting Update 2 on you're 830..it's not available NOW ( it was April 10) , - no matter what you read.

    And sorry I thought that you wanted Office -period, I don't know if it's available with W10 (apparently not) but it's already loaded as an OS app on the 830 with 8.1

    It really depends on your build. I went to Denim to Update 2 on my 830 (RM-985 w/ Rogers denim ROM) last Wednesday but yesterday I went from Cyan to v14219 to W10TP directly on my AT&T 635. I really can't find a straight relation here.

    further info: I have the RM-983 on ATT and it went straight to W10. No update 2. But that is ATT for us of course....

    My 830 running Denim did prompt me to install Update 2 an hour ago (after a fresh ROM flash). I am certain that in order to get Update 2 one would need at least the Denim firmware.

    Which I probably can't get, since I have a RM-983. Swell.

    OK, got a phone call today from MS/Lumia as the matter has been escalated to the "relevant team". I was told that the Denim fw update is unfortunately a matter of carrier approval and it depends. Nothing new of course, but the support person suggested I contact ATT with this, which I will. And of course we all know the outcome of this....

    Sounds like b.s. on their part, per usual. Their unlocked U.S. variant from the Microsoft Store would have gotten the update already if what they're saying is true.

    I am a bit ticked too that we don't have it, but like I keep saying, they probably found a problem with the specific firmware that is on the aT&T variant AND the 983 variant. I just wish they would be more open and let us know if they found a problem. Or what the holdup is.

    Has anyone tried contacting Joe Belfiore about this via Twitter or Facebook? I don't do social media but am curious if anyone has tried to contact him. Maybe he can give us some answers.

    Facebook will not get a proper reply but Twitter might. I will tweet both Joe Belfiore and Gabe Aul and see if they can provide something other than a canned BS response.

    I had hoped that someone from the Windows Central team or maybe Mary Jo Foley and Paul Thurrott's group would have inquired about this Denim issue at Build last week and let us know something. Either there is an hardware issue with the 830 or AT&T is testing GDR2 to push out with Denim soon. Or they just suck and they are waiting for Windows 10 release which will also take many months for them to test.

    I tried @WinPhoneSupport this morning and got the same canned BS excuse reply. So I guess they don't care if my carrier wants to take up to 6 months testing something that the rest of the world has already been using?
