hello, I have an unlocked (at least I believe it is unlocked and unbranded) htc8x... The store I got it from said that they imported it from the UK. Problem is, I still haven'g got the gdr3 update, and when I check for it, I get the message that my phone is up to date. I haven't got the gdr2 either. Should I start worrying that there is something wrong with my phone, and how can I check????

 

thanks

Hi, just to let you know you have to download the Windows Phone Update 3 preview for developers app from the store and install that first. Then it will prompt you to check for updates. This is a preview, not a final build, so it may have glitches and may void your warranty.

I believe Verizon has started to push out GDR3/Update 3 for the HTC 8X.

As far as I know, it is final build.

Nokia still hasn't even updated their updates website yet. Looks unlikely that this'll get general distribution by this year.

GDR3 is in testing with Telstra in Australia.

The ROM is out there, just not deployed yet :) 920 is due in February on Telstra :o

I've been using the beta GDR3 for a while, had some weird issues which I hope got resolved. Other than that its a nice small improvement.

So I have the official Black update on my phone instead of the "beta" now, which is good because the last beta update cause my phone to reboot a lot. anyway the black update is awesome, battery time is massively improved, and I mean massively.
