Nokia rolling out updates to Lumia 920, 820 & 620

Nokia has announced today that the Noka Lumia 920, Lumia 820 and Lumia 620 will all be receiving new, but minor updates starting very shortly, although no new features will be added. All new Lumia 920s, 820s and 620s will come with the updates out of the box, while existing units will get the update over-the-air "later", according to Nokia.

For the Lumia 820 and Lumia 920, your phone will be receiving an update that will bump it to version 1232.5957.1308.00xx, which includes stability and performance updates, enhancements to in-call stability, and improvements to auto-brightness. Version 1030.6407.1308.00xx is being pushed out to the Lumia 620, and it apparently includes camera quality improvements, improved touch behavior, and system stability enhancements.

uk EE unlocked 920 - updated this afternoon, took about 10 mins after downloading and preparing.
i now have a '3g+' signal rather than a 'H'

Well H (HSDPA) is actually 3.5G on many phones, so that would make sense. Also with a number of HSDPA options and speeds available I could see how they would 'reserve' the H and H+ indicators for those..

So, I am a new Lumia user. How do these updates come? Do we get notified to manually download them or are they automatic?

You get a notification or you can do a manual check for updates.

Good lord. Mine is ancient compared to yours. I just bought mine yesterday and it's 1232.5951.1249.0001. No updates trying it manually (Rogers)

you're on the same version as me the part behind the last . is carrier version.

I've just followed this guide
http://forums.wpcentral.com/no...umia-920-clean-install.html
And successfully updated my 920 to the latest version.
Keep in mind this will flash your phone and remove any files and settings previously on it. However the MS account will setup half of it on first boot after the update.
The whole thing including backing up my files took around an hour. (8GB backup)

It's Nokia's update roll-out scheme, it might be a long wait for many users. You could also wait, as this month the last roll-out should happen. But this end date has been shoved into the future 3 times already. So it might be a few more months

To add:
If you wait for the released update. You will keep your files and settings
My phone was released in January here (very, very late) So I was afraid I'd have to wait months before receiving it.
Am really intreged about alleged battery improvements, I managed to get 1,5-2days out of it on moderate usage. Hopefully it will reach the 3-4 days now and be in range of the old Nokia's

It may have taken all day but I finally got my Lumia updated to the latest. I really didn't want for Rogers/Nokia to push it out.

That's one of the nice bonuses of having a Nokia to, you can update yourself through their own roms. Htc doesn't have anything like that but my 8X is unlocked so I have a higher chance of getting updates in the end. I got portico back in mid-December.

I hope they fix the bluetooth issue with the 920. That is my only frustation with my phone besides how the glass gets easily scratched.

The 920 is BT4 certified; my understanding is that an OS update is needed.

Hahaha, I just listened to CBS news and some reporter said that the Galaxy IV is the first phone to come close to the iPhone but is not better. Are they getting paid off by Apple to babble such stupidity?

The press in general really doesn't seem impressed by the Galaxy 4... I haven't looked at it myself, but the articles I've seen haven't been terribly favorable...

My only complaint about the brightness is that I've found the Lumia 920's display to stay quite dim in "auto" mode. The high-contrast sunlight mode works perfectly. But indoors, it's always dim. And like Philip, I've also noticed that my phone (AT&T in the US) will often show no data indicator when I tap the status bar area, but it will still have data connectivity. I don't know if it's HSPA+ or LTE, since both are available in my area. It should be using LTE. When I leave an LTE area, it seems to switch to this fake "no data" mode more often. I hope this firmware corrects that.

The automatic brightness settings seems to be affected by the level (low, medium, or high) when it shouldn't be. Maybe yours is on low. And maybe the update will fix this issue.

In Australia...i could REALLY use a signal stability upgrade. I love the phone. However 25% of the time i get 'H' or 'G' instead of 4G/3G. They claim its a firmware issue....hopefully it fixes it!

Not had any issues with that at all here in sweden with my 920.

Its on H (HSDPA/HSUPA) most of time time, but its a 3G technology, and I am not having any hitches.

Not found any 4g networks around though yet..
Hardly browse on the thing anyway.

I'm in Australia too, I'm guessing you're using 920 with Telstra? If so, that's more to do with LTE coverage, the H is just HSDPA which is essentially 3G. Are you in Sydney or Melbourne?

Sweet! Wonder when they will be pushing out the 620 update because I have seen the touch problem which is that it can't handle multitouch properly! Good to see nokia on the ball!

improvements to auto-brightness

Good. I'm still getting to used to my 820, and one of my pet hates is the brightness; the auto-brightness is too bright at night, and there's only three manual options instead of a slider like on the iPhone, the lowest of which is still too bright to use at night.

Yeah it's also super sensitive so it will change if its in and out of direct light for instance a light bulb!

Nice round of firmware updates, normally we see these go out after a OS update but anything that has performance and stability improvements is worth it.

If the April release of the Verizon 928 is true that's when we should see GDR2 with some new features.

I use my Lumia 920 as my alarm clock every morning...

Alarm clock, what? I've never had a issue with it since the very start of Windows Phone.

Coworkers 920 cant use it. If u dont leave it as the foreground app it doesnt work. He emailed feedback and said its a known issue.

I don't know what you mean by leaving the Alarm app as a foreground app. You open the alarm app, set your alarms, and then you never have to open up the app again; it doesn't matter what else you do with the phone (aside from powering it off). It just works. I've also got a Lumia 920. Don't get me wrong, the phone isn't perfect. I just can't say that I've come across the issue, either personally, or online as a known issue.

Dunno, works fine for me.. every morning and with a different setting in the weekends.. No issue at all

So you take your co-worker claim as enough to come trolling here.. Just tried what you said.. works fine..

It doesn't work when powered off? The old Nokia's used to even with dead battery, it would live on days being an alarm clock.

It might. I haven't tried it, to be honest. The only time my phone is off is when I'm on a flight.

It was a killer feature to me (I hardly used it though) back in the day, saved my ass numerous times I'll give it a go, just set an alarm 2 minutes from now. Turning off phone...
and it turns itself on again it seems a minute before the alarm? Don't think it works like it used to
