    I'm thinking HSPA & GSM before LTE. T-Mo before Verizon. With AT&T smack in the middle. I'd even put a dollar on it... ;)

    Could you keep updating us on any and all changes you find? And could you check if there is VPN support if possible? Thanks.

    That's all I could find and I can't find any mention of VPN

    Recap:
    - Constant Wifi
    - Text Message Drafts
    - Preset Text Reply When Unable to Take a Call

    Battery percentage indicator? I hadn't heard about this yet, but I was curious as to why I had to download an app to tell me my percentage, instead if it being readily available as a drop down like LTE, WiFi indicators.

    Do you have the international unlocked version or something? Does it have LTE?

    I might sound pessimistic but I have a feeling this updates going to take its sweet time coming to LTE carrier locked devices. There's a reason Google went for HSDPA for its Nexus line.

    ugh... I hope not. I keep refreshing my phone (Verizon) and I'm not getting anything. I want to live in the *now* like the rest of the 8X world!

    For those who got the update could you tell us if the reboot and freezing issues have gone away and how's the battery life?

    I'm worried how long it's going to take the carriers to get these updates out.

    It's at this point that I seriously regret my lack of impulse control. Every year, I vow that I will never buy a carrier branded (locked) device, instead opting for a fully unlocked phone from Expansys or Clove or similar. Last year, I stuck to my guns and picked up my un-sullied Titan from Clove. This year, all the excitement of WP8 overwhelmed me and I succumbed at the O2 store on the first day of 8X availability in the UK and now have an O2 branded 8X which no doubt means that I will not get this nice new update for several months while O2 "test" and "validate" it on their wonderful network. Shame they don't do as much testing on their network infrastructure which has fallen over catastrophically TWICE this year!


    Ah well.....................

    Isn't there a changelog? I was looking over the menus but I couldn't find any differences except for those you mentioned already...

    I just downloaded and installed the update. It seems to get stuck in the "preparing update" at 100% but after a couple of minutes it carries on.

    The ability to keep WiFi turned on while locked it's great, specially since my carrier has been getting major signal and data problems in the last month or so.

    I also noticed a firmware update but I can't find any info. The updates (there were 3-4 into one) are numbered using the standard KB numbering system used in Windows or other Microsoft products. Tomorrow will try to look for the KB articles if there are any.

    It's good to know that Microsoft kept their promise for early updates. Hopefully we can add "often" to that as well :D

    Downloaded and installed the update a few minutes ago. Also got stuck at 100% for a few minutes, then completed the installation.

    Love the Reply with Text option. In fact it's even better than on iOS as you can have the option of fully customizing the pre-set text messages, whereas with iOS the customization is only partial (which never made sense to me).
