    Hello,

    i have a 735, and i installed Windows Phone Recovery Tool in order to go back to 8.1.

    But the message i got is the below.
    How can i go back to 8.1? I do not understand if i am doing something wrong, or if there isnt a software availble online to download.

    ok managed to go back to 8.1.

    My main concerns were:
    - not able to control data on/off
    - not having excel or word app
    - not being able to check all emails on one screen but having to go into each one

    and in general, i didn't feel that it had something to offer me except the new settings menu... its nice to be seeing how this develops, and continuously say my opinion on things, but i dont have the time to miss important settings...

    it is amazing the feeling of 8.1 - with the new settings menu. Super fast.

    If i stayed another week with windows 10, i would have bought another phone :)
    I don't think anyone should risk it on their primary phone - something indicated also by Microsoft.

    I wish MS implemented a fix for seeing pictures on excel files in emails, in order to avoid getting my Android tablet every time i want to read attachments.
