Nope. Not worth it at all. 

Ask yourself, if it was too good, why did the original user decided to sell it? 

 

Perhaps someones upgraded or upgrading to a Lumia Icon/930 for example and no longer wants the 920 - doesn't mean it's no good if they're selling it -.-

You can get the developer preview simply by signing up. There are instructions all over the net and 8.1 dramatically improves the phone.

 

post haste means with great speed >.< Quickly for the normal people amongst us :p

From personal experience, I'd be looking at seeing if you can find a 925 for that price.  It's a better phone IMO.

I tried, but no attractive prices. Besides, read that build quality on the 920 is superior to the 925. This is one article: http://allaboutwindo...te_rages-co.php

Part of the reason I intend on shelling out about $200 for a Windows Phone 8 is for the developer preview of Windows Phone 8.1, which has a bunch of cool new features like "Cortana", or Microsoft's Siri. It's actually pretty neat, and it's relatively realistic too.

 

And it has open app development! Kind of. You have to open your phone to it one time from your computer, but after that, you can download and install third party applications as you please; not that there are many out there yet!

Sorry for the late reply.

There's no real risk in installing this, and gives you a ton of improved functionality.

The 920 has an excellent camera and screen, at that price I'd go for it :)
