Welcome to the new AT&T Community
We've got a fresh look! Take the tour to see what's new.
Ok ATT, when is GDR2 going to be released for the Nokia 920 (and all the other phones).
I am out of the country in Kenya and today I got my IOS7 OTA update effortlessly on my AT&T Iphone. Unfortunately been waiting for GDR2 update for almost a month now for my Lumia 920. Incidentally even in small countries like Kenya the DGR2 is already available to the windows phone 8 owners. What's up AT&T?
Note how they always have Iphone updates ready in a flash. So yes, it can be done. Obviously, WP are not a high enough priority for them. They're too busy appeasing Iphone users.
Youd think that time after time of update delays, that something would be done to fix the process. Make it smoother and get it done in a timely manner. But no. They just tell us to wait.
And the worst part about all of it, is that we will end up getting a gimp verson of Amber. No Data Sense. I am officially done with ATT once my contract is up, which I believe is soon. Then they can kiss the behinds of Iphone owners all they want, for all I care. Im done with ATT.
Not that I don't agree with you, but....then what? Verizon? T-Mobile? Sprint? All mortgaged their wives and kids to get the iPhone. Where ever you move...you will be faced with iPhone. Unless you move to Europe, where the iPhone is not so much on a pedestal as here.
If you do move, send up a post card !!
Here is something I don’t understand. The Lumia 925 is out and has amber on it. Its really not all that different from the 920 so why is there no update the Lumia 920 users? I get it they want you to buy a 925 but if a user isn't up for an upgrade then why not just give them the update?
If they make the phone you have better, you're less likely to buy a new one and trap yourself in another contract. Don't worry if you're still in a contract - they'll help you out to extend your contract and get you that new device with the current software.
It will be interesting to see how long they string out the new 1020 and 925 owners when GDR3 is already running on every other carriers' phones and at&t's latest top windows phone.
We already have three topics on this which rehash it over and over. Could you just post in one of them?
Funny, I have Pro Camera listed as an option in the camera....and extras+info has a "i" about the Amber update.... But NO UPDATE...
Lets those topics be posted so at&t can see what we are all waiting for. If there's a page full of gdr2/3 topics, then at&t is gonna have to do something about it...
This is a user to user forum, not an AT&T support forum. I doubt the same handful of people posting over and over is going to make things go any faster.
And yes, I too await the update. But I'm not ready to get the torch and pitchfork. If they miss end of September then I "shall be very put out"
Good point, what is there to test? Its been tested by the rest of the world already. Unless ATT is just removing the important features of GDR2.
This is truly disappointing.
Apple released their update last week and it was out the same day. Microsoft released theirs almost two months ago and its still not available.
The least we could get is some information. WHEN is it coming would be an excellent start.
WHEN is it coming would be an excellent start.
Sometime in the next 8 days, I would expect.
Supposedly, EVERY Nokia phone that qualifies for the update will see it before the end of September. This is the last full week of September. Assuming AT&T lives up to their end of the bargain, (as per Nokia's promise), my gut feel is that they'll release it on Monday. But given my OWN terrible experiences with AT&T and the Samsung Focus (all three models) NEVER receiving WP7.8, I wouldn't be the slightest bit surprised if they miss the deadline. IF they release it on 9/30/13... I will remain an AT&T customer... HOWEVER, if they don't, and instead ship it later than that, I will consider that my cue to jump ship and go to Verizon! I'll be submitting a "help desk ticket" today simply to make my feelings known to AT&T as well as to excoriate them on their pathetic track record and lack of commitment and devotion to their customers!
My point is that I would like ATT to SAY it. I want them to give us a time frame of the release rather then this silence which they are so good at.
They never do that. They'll annouce it when it's available.

Can we expect you to be the first one expressing your outrage on October 1st?
"If it is otherwise I shall be very put out" to paraphrase Prince Humperdinck. That doesn't mean it won't happen, just that it will be counter to everything anyone could know. AT&T has publicly commented that they are "testing" and Nokia has publicly commented that all 920s are expected to have the update by the end of September. That's all we have to go on.
