Verizon has released GDR2 and amber for the 928 today.
Nothing from AT&T. Should have left it to Nokia.

Just for fun, I contacted customer support, and they said Amber will be available "Late August or early September." When I asked why it's going out all over the world, but not with AT&T, I was told: "The Nokia update must have been provisioned over different broadbands first which is why the other carriers are getting them however you can rest easy that AT&T will not stop until we get it going out over ours."
Really?!? Tanzania was "provisioned" before one of the largest telecom corporations in the world?! Perhaps I don't understand what provisioning means in this case, but I took it to mean "they'll get to it when they get to it."

I don't expect we'll see it now that the 1020 is the latest phone. Remember how they were going to release ALL of the Windows Phone updates all at once for 7.x and they never did even though they strung us along for many months? I expect them to sandbag the 920. We'll probably never see another one. My Titan II *NEVER* got an update and my TItan never got one past 7740. I was really hoping it would be better with Nokia devices but AT&T must have gotten their "WE MUST MAKE THEM BUY A NEW DEVICE" attitude in the Nokia doors.
I'm really disappointed that a premiere Windows Phone and Nokia partner would treat customers this way.

I have noticed that it seems that Verizon always gets updates first on any type smartphone. When my contract is up I am switching....most of my family has switched already.

Nokia released it for rollout TODAY...
However, it's waiting for approval on AT&T.
You can see the status here: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-north-americ...
I expect it won't be long now.

Yeah, ATT has to remove and add what they want first. I will not be happy if they remove the FM Radio Support.

The 920 version was released by Nokia TODAY. The soonest you could have gotten it was TODAY. Let's start the clock at TODAY and see how long it takes.

and other carrier's 920's are receiving it. YESTERDAY.
Oh yes, sorry. Yesterday. So in the USA we are at day 1 of waiting. The availabilty on the 822 on VZ is still pending too, so I guess we can be happy others have to wait as well.
It will get here sooner or later.

Here we go again. Waiting for the one underpaid tech in a windowless cubicle to get approval from an uncaring underpaid middle manager to push the button.
