    Let's see how the day goes. Nothing at 5am CA time. Last time an update rolled out for the 920 it didn't hit CA on rollout day until the afternoon.

     

    Looking forward to talking about Amber/GDR2 and not the wait for same.

    I'm glad we finally have a definite date on when the software is supposed to be rolled out.  Really, that's all I wanted; a specific date.

    OK, thanks for the date and I hope it does come soon. Any idea how long it will take to roll out? Suggestion, a little more commnuciation next time. Just like the Apple fans that line up for blocks when a new iPhone comes out, some of us are a bit passionate about our phones. I little explaination: I have seen the iPhone and the Android dominate this market and for much of their lives, rightfully so. But now, Microsoft has a phone that is better than the others. I have had an Android, and my kids have iPhones and my phone is hands down the best. Microsoft nearly blew it but they finally have a phone that is a worthy competitor but it really feels like it is not getting a fair shake at customer. AT&T has certainly supported it, but it just has not felt like the full blown effort that you see with the other platforms and thus my angst. If I get the update today or tomorrow (I know it could take some time to rollout), I will return to the AT&T fold and look forward to the next release with hope. Thanks Dimitriy for the update.

    10AM Central and still no update. Does "available on 10/10" mean what I think it does?

    I checked this morning at 6:45a when I was at the house and nothing. 

     

    Came in to work and saw the news about it and said "bull poo" and moved on.

     

    Don't want to use the wireless at work to update as they have many restrictions on the connection.

    Read the wording carefully.  "We expect...".  Meaning, it's AT&T so expect it not to be available today.

    One of the articles (WP Central?) said that updates typically roll out around 1:00 pm Eastern. That has quelled my checking-every-5-minutes until then.  I'm only checking once an hour Smiley Very Happy

    Now that they are done "testing" the update, now they begin "testing" the rollout process. Knowing them, that process could also take a few months.

    Microsoft rollout of updates for WP usually takes place around 9 or 10 am PDT.   Which coincides with the WPC post.  They typcially do not roll out early....usually right on the dot.  So, we'll see.

    Are you guys seriously believing the statement of a community manager?! I don't!

    Just check out Nokia's website:
    http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-north-america/

    It still says "Waiting for approval"! If it's really released today it should say "Coming soon" or "Available".
