Typically I don't think they would have the expertise to figure out that the phone had a preview OS on it. I took my phone to the MS store last week because my screen was broken and I had insurance through them. They didn't even check to see if the phone turned on, much less what OS it had.

I'm wondering the same... What if I manage to break my precious Lumia 1020 a second time?
Granted, the first time around, the people in the Microsoft Store (I bought it through them) swapped the device, no questions asked. They simply took my $50 deductible, got the account information, checked to make sure personal data was wiped (they were impressed to see I had done it myself, they said it could get tiring trying to explain to people how to backup, delete, and restore their data).
So hopefully they'll be nice about it, but I am a bit concerned. I'd really like to get GDR3, especially with rotation lock and app closing, and it's awesome to be free from the shackles of AT&T!!! It'd be a real shame to have to sit on the sidelines and wait because of fear of breaking my device...I'm 15 and I like: Swimming, Space, Science, Math, Food, Sleep and of course: Microsoft.

I've got GDR3 running on my Lumia 1020, and I love it thus far. No major or noticeable bugs, but it does seem that a few simple tasks are slightly slower than before (Like opening messages). Not the biggest issue in the world, but I'll keep my eyes peeled for more problems.I'm 15 and I like: Swimming, Space, Science, Math, Food, Sleep and of course: Microsoft. (aka, nerd on a bun)

Not sure how this would void a warrany... This is not a hardware change, it's only software. That statement was done my MS to AKA:Cover their A$$ but, I think it's bull.....
Unless we got the change in the 928/920/1020 etc, that gave us more tiles, no one would notice the change out of the box because there is no visual changes to the homepage.
I downloaded it on my 928....Disapointed that we dont get the new tiles....Oh, well...

And, once it's set-up, you're done. Anytime a new update comes out, whether it be an official, carrier approved update, or a Developer Preview update, you'll be notified and asked if you'd like to install. Easy peasy, and exactly the same as receiving normal updates, whether you're in the program or not.
I think it's great. One time set-up, then you're good, and you'll get to enjoy updates even if greedy corporate companies like AT&T don't want you to have them.

Bit late now, I know, but just something to keep in mind for the future. When I smashed my Lumia 1020, they swapped it, no questions asked (well, other than how the hell I destroyed it...)

• If you drop your device, it breaks, and warranty covers it somehow, then its warrantied.
• BUT, if you install GDR3, your phone starts acting sporadic, the screen inverts colors, and then it bricks, so you send it in, then its not covered (since you'd be sending it in for software issues, which GDR3 voids warranty in that case)
• Hardware is warrantied
• Software and Hardware explicitly damaged by Software malfunctions are not.

It may void warranty, i assume, but what if the official Nokia GDR3 is updated, will my warranty still be void? or just the period between my Developer version and official GDR3 will be called as void? or my phone's warranty will get lapsed fully?
I already have this screen flickering issue with my 920, i mean the screen acts like a bulb, where the screen is blinking. i don't know if blinking or flickering are the same issue.
I have warranty till February end, but i want my device with me till December, am planning to give to Nokia care after that, i cannot be without 920 till December as i have major appointments and Nokia will surely take 10-21 days to revert back to me, their After sales service is worst! had few experiences in the past.
whoa there is no clear explanation or guides on anything as it used to be with Symbian era! but its simpler now but still there are questions always hovering in the minds of n00bs.
