    With the flood gates opening regarding the release of GDR2 bundled with Nokia’s Amber Update, everyone is dying to know when their Lumia 620 will receive the magical update message. Also, some of you may not know what is included and how it will make your phone better. This guide should provide everything you need!

    Has my update been released?
    Nokia has a great page for helping its customers discover if their carrier has released the update yet or not:
    Software update for Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 8 - Nokia

    To check for your phone, click on the region you belong to on the left side of the webpage. This will bring up a list phones/carriers organized by country.

    Go to the settings and then check to see if you have an update available, (Settings -> Phone update -> Check for updates). If the update is available, you'll have to be on a WiFi connection to download any system updates over 20MB in size (and GDR2 is definitely over 20MB!)

    What is included in GDR2?

    Fixes Low Res “Me” Tile Pictures - For more details, Click Here

    FM Radio - Back from the dead! It is now included on WP8 phones. You can find it in your Music & Video Hub.

    Data Sense - It is now available for more phones. For more details, Click Here.

    Change Default Camera Lens/App - Name says it all!

    CardDAV and CalDAV Support - Now sync your calender and contacts from services that use these standards!

    HTML5 Improvements - Now view HTML5 sites better in IE! Pages should load faster and with less errors!

    Lynx and Skype Stability Improvements

    What is included in Amber?

    Block Calls & Text Messages - While the API for this feature will be on all phones, Nokia has implemented block calls and text messages based on a blacklist or from numbers that have been withheld. For more details, Click Here.

    Video Trimmer - A Nokia app that allows for quick editing and sharing of video. For more details, Click Here.

    Double Tap To Wake - Now you can double tap your phone to turn it on! No more finding the power button in the dark.
    Caution: This feature uses more battery power.

    Glance - This feature allows you to view the clock whenever you take your phone out of your pocket or when you wave your hand over the sensor. For detailed information, Click Here.

    Nokia Pro Cam - Want the fantastic app the 1020 uses to take pictures? You got it if you have the 920, 925 or 928! For details, Click Here. There's also a good chance it will be released later for other devices if other Nokia apps are anything to go by.

    Do you have some new information to share? Post it here! Does this show your phone not having the update yet, but you just verified receiving it? Post it here!

    Lack of FM chip not the reason the Nokia Lumia 620 is not getting FM Radio support | WMPoweruser

    Just check if all your apps were installes properly. After that, go to store, and under downloads, cancel all of them.


    Sometimes after a restore, the apps installers kinda " duplicates themselves".

    Make sure that you are bought the app from marketplace of a region (say US), you are reinstalling the apps from the same marketplace. If you downloaded and installed the app in the US marketplace, but after flashing the GRD2, the marketplace is changed to another country, you will have this problem when redownloading and reinstalling of the app.

    I own a Lumia 620. I'm practically living on music and the music duplicating itself on my phone totally bugs me out. I still haven't updated to GDR2+Amber, so can someone tell me if the duplication issue has been fixed???
