Somebody must have read my post *lol. I checked before I posted the link and it was still saying "Waiting for approval." Don't tell me AT&T is really rolling out the update, still hard to believe after all this time...

Got an error 8018830f the first time (downloaded but couldn't open).  Tried again and it worked fine.

Migrating your data (Step 2 of 5) 10%.... this is at about 20 minutes after I started the update.

 

I have a ton of apps/games installed on my Lumia 920, and the pace it is going, I think it will take another 20-30 minutes to finish.  

 

But what's another 20-30 minutes, when I've been waiting for this update for months!  :smileyhappy:

Strange, after running the update I went though the phone to see if there were any changes I could see right off the bat, but found nothing different.  I checked the version number of the firmware and got 1232.5962.1314.0001, which I think is the old version.  It's not what's listed as expected for the update.

 

I just restarted the phone and went back to the update screen, and now it's downloading again.  Not sure what's going on.  If it didn't have the 1314 update already, wouldn't it have found it the previous 2.5 million times I've looked for the GDR2 update?

Since you are looking at a loss of data anyway, how about a hard reset? Have you tried that?

Well, pulling the battery doesn't do a factory reset. Try this:http://www.hard-reset.com/nokia-lumia-820-hard-reset.html

Sigh....the extra wait to fix issues and it still appears to have bricked my phone (920). Stuck on the turning gear screen for over an hour now. Does navifirm still work or will i have to send my phone in?

Does anyone think we will get an explanation for lack of Data Sense? The myAT&T app does not compare with Data Sense. Earlier it was exclusive to Verizon...

Overall the update seems stable. FM radio works well.

They will not explain why we don't get Data Sense. If they admitted the real reason, they would look bad. They're dirtbags, plain and simple. All phone companies suck, but ATT is just worse.
