    I have signed up for DP and Beta from devices even without a SIM card and putting random charts for the "operator". It all went fine. Maybe because the IMEIs were from India where no device is carrier locked.
    @hotfix, good luck with the Pixel. I wish HMD did the DP better so that developers would like this phones. But ah.. I guess Pixel is all that developers should buy. Latest OS before others and enough time to test and make the apps work well. Meanwhile, if you're still on it and you send me a screenshot of the exact build number that you're on, I can probably spot a new Q build on the internal server and share it with you (privately ofc). But i wont be able to comment on how fully it will be supported in the future. Like if you get an upgrade path or not. 

    Edit: I see a release which goes from 259G to 4040. Our existing Q build was 4011. So, a new build is cooked. It also takes the latest public release 259G as the base. But idk if HMD will push it or just keep it internally.

    I think Software eng from HMD also leaving the company as some recent big heads too, 
    They r literally low on resources nd can't provide any alpha beta updates,
    Last year they had dp for 2-3 devices with regular patch releases .
    If Nokia will not intervene now ,I don't think HMD will continue much

    user1555208268263 last year the DP was only on he 7+ for HMD, nothing else.
    And you're assuming they ever had a software engineer...

    I would like to see more updates to the beta Q build .
    How can we test the new features of Android Q?!
    I am believing more and more that the next update will be the release candidate

    Also I would really appreciate a Nokia Camera app for the Beta builds

    Google released beta 5 but it remains very silent @Nokia beta :-(
    I think i will do away with my 8.1 and go back to pixel.

    Google aren't the ones who do the developer builds for other OEMs. i believe Nokia is taking so much time since it has to make the Beta released by Google compatible with it's devices. i do agree that they should be faster than this though

    Hello all

    I have purchased a Nokia 8.1 (TA-1128) purely because I need a device that is participating in the Android Q developer preview program
    My new device has been updated to the May Security Patch 00WW_2_59E_SP01 
    I am in the United Kingdom
    The device was purchased Sim-free so is not attached to any particular carrier
    When I try to add my device to access the preview build, all I get is an "IMEI not found" error


    The IMEI has been entered correctly
    Can anybody offer any advice please?
    Thanks

    I am also having the same problem in my device (I'm from India)

    Has anybody been able to ascertain whether the June patch should be in place or not? The Developer Preview page is still suggesting not, but is that information out of date? Thanks

    I'll be interested in knowing what you did to make it work. Since the update should have denied to install on the June update installed.

    @singhnsk - after reading everything on here I had not allowed the June patch to download to my device, so it still has May installed

    remember when nokia said they'd make OTA Support for the better availability mid July ? 

    yeah. good times.

    if only it wasn't almost August now, with only one version of the beta available that's still based on Beta 3.

    I do not need OTAs. I'd rather want them to give us something, even if the same old sideload package. Maybe they would have been better not jumping into the Android Q beta marketing if they weren't prepared. Keep taking wrong steps time and again.

    user1519486478347 you can't install Android Q developer preview (very beta!) on the 8, it is only available for the 8.1.
    Cheers :)

    This is ridiculous for HMD global. One plus has launched android q beta 4 to their latest mobiles but nokia is still behind from them. It seems nokia want to loose their customer's trust again.
