What are your thoughts on Windows Phone 8 Update 3? Have you run into any updating issues? Has anyone lost any features from "Amber" (Like glance, radio, here drive, etc.)? Which update path did you choose? Dev account or App Studio?

 

I have a lumia 521 that I may update, it is on tmobile's prepaid plan and running GDR2+Amber, so I am wondering if I should update.

Go for it. My install went without any issue. I used the app, is there another way?

I wish it came with the new 3rd column in start screen. That'd let me emulate the WP7 style (love that!).

Another one chiming in with no issues.

 

Working nicely >.<

 

For those of you having trouble installing the WP8 SDK, roll your clock back 3 months. There's an issue with an expired signing cert. Rolling back the clock fixes it >.<

Did it on an ATT Lumia 520 that is unlocked and in use on the Claro network in Honduras

Haven't noticed any issues.

 

You might want to think about loss of warranty, if that's a problem for you.

Since I bought mine in the USA and use it in Honduras I don't really worry about it, no chance I would send that phone back anyway :)

How are people update this?

In order to update, you need a developer account OR an app studio account. Go to http://apps.windowsstore.com/ then click start building, Then go to http://www.windowsph...0c-038393741e96

 

Install it to the phone. 

 

Any favorite features? I like the  app tiles on the app switcher, makes them easier to recognize.

Can anyone list the changelog? Any great feature that I should update for now? Otherwise, I will wait for the OTA update.

That's thus far. Notification center is apparently coming in GDR3.
