How to Stop Receiving Insider Preview Builds on Windows 10 Mobile Phone

information   Information
If you joined the Windows Insider Program on your Windows 10 Mobile phone, then you will get the latest Insider preview builds for your phone.

If you need to stop receiving Insider Preview builds for a little while, you can select to stop them for 1 day, 3 days, or 5 days before automatically receiving builds again.

If you want to completely opt out and stop receiving Insider Preview builds, then you will need to either rollback or reset your phone to it's original OS. Be sure to back up your phone first.
