    But british O2 operator has already delivered GDR2 to its W1s...And you can download other GDR2 enabled ROMs and manually install them!

    I don't think FM radio is the issue

    If you can lay hands on the British GDR3 rom, you can flash your phone to that ;)

    Do something with what?
    MS can release GDR2 to Huawei, but its on Huawei to push that update to its users...

    A technical question:

    when I press "update now" on the phone, where is the server accessed ?

    Is it a Huawei hosted server or a Microsoft?

    Folks, Facebook, while a popular (and IMO, stupid) social network is not the end all, be all for customer support or official company policy.

    The fact is, Huawei has a GDR2 ROM for the W1 as evidenced in this very forum. There are also reports of users on Vodafone and O2 getting the update as well as those in China.

    In other words, I would not put too much into this FB statement. They're a Chinese company and a lot gets lost in the shuffle.

    They garanteed wp8 phone upgradability, not if some a-hole chinese company decides not to support it.
    MSFT delivers it to the OEM's and they decide what to do with it

    I really don't think so, MS must have given everyone the raw update which the manufacturer needs to customize as per his phone model.
    Maybe Huawei was not interested in that.

    I just got an answer from the Greek Huawei FB group, concerning GDR2:

    "Due to technical problems, this update is not available for the moment..."

    I suppose this answer applies to the rest of the world, not only Greece...

    I also sent an e-mail to mobile@huawei.com asking about GDR2. This is the Huawei Device Customer Care Team.
    Of course, they didn't spend more than 30 seconds, they suggested to contact local Huawei...

    What a funny way to shrug their shoulders ;)
    Look for developer communities, they may have ROMs for Huawei.

    If they will skip GDR2 update for Worldwide release and release the GDR3 instead, it would be okay for me.

    You are right, but if they skip also gdr3? If they could skip an update, they can do it twice.. The problem is that nobody knows nothing about the GDR2 update for this device. If you ask on FB/TW page of Huawei they won't answer... The only thing we know is that chinese and english w1 has recived this update..

    Hi all, I visited econsumer.gov - Your site for cross-border complaints. and created an official complaint about Huawei's denial of delivering GDR2 update for the W1 device. Reference number is 48730906. I don't expect much but I hope it will put a little pressure...

    If Huawei will also skip GDR3, well fu*k them! Microsoft should revoke their license soon if that happens.
