I meant the general rollout. I thought Nokia decides this? Meaning once the general rollout starts, carriers/countries determine when a given user actually gets it.

 

Correct me if I'm wrong of course.

I don't know about this but 512 MB ones will get it in last for sure. Since Black firmware needs to be more tailored for them. Lets see.. Anxiously waiting for L520 rollout.

It'll happen, when Nokia pushes out the black update then you will also get GDR3 if you haven't yet. Either way we know WP8.1 is coming out soon so if you're a bit behind you'll get all the updates in one go with 8.1. It sucks to wait but with carries that's how it goes, I hope with MS taking over they could maybe work things out with them to speed the process up.

I'm not actually with the official carrier (I got my phone factory unlocked), so I'm not sure how to use that link.

if it's actually unbranded then It's where your phone was made for then. In the extras+info under Manufacture's Name it should tell you which region your phone is for. You'd check the Country Variant of that region. Should be where you bought your phone from.

Hong Kong, which makes sense given it always has Chinese after a reset.

Indonesia? Hmmm.... my Lumia 620 sure has wandered far from home. Long way from Louisiana.

So once it says "Available", it should be to my phone as well, right? Or can there be further delays?

that's been my experience, yes. check for updates once it changes to available.

 

You can set up an automatic notification with https://www.followthatpage.com/ to monitor the page with the update statuses and email you when it changes. You can use the block and line filters to narrow it down to only the one you care about.

Okay, thanks.

 

Funny thing is the real reason I want this update is simply to stop this auto-rotation. It's the single most annoying thing about WP8, and a huge oversight.

 

Internet Explorer is really slow too, but that I can live with.

By the way, why does each region have a separate approval method/process? I'm not sure I understand.
