Very simple folks...T-Mobile has kicked us to the curb in favor of the Lumia 521 and the incoming Catwalk. So we need to still let our voices be heard. So let's round up as many 810 users as possible and tell T-Mobile that we need to get the updates like everyone else. Let's petition!
Sign the petition by putting in your city, when you bought your 810 and do a screenshot of your settings to show folks how large your "other folder" is. If you want to say whether you're still paying for your 810 or bought it at full price, throw that in there too. Let's get a long enough list that people can tweet on T-Mobile's website to get their attention.
To all the skeptics out there, all we want is the Check Storage update itself, or assurances from T-Mobile that we will get it, along with the other updates in the pipeline. This isn't the 920 or even the 8X we're talking about...it's the 810, a carrier variant and we feel T-Mobile it gonna stick it to us.
Me: NYC- 11/19/12, and sadly I'm still on the hook for mine. My "Other" is much less than it used to be because I clear history and keep minimal apps onboard.

Recently reset my phone so other isn't very large yet.. but I reset it yesterday and its already almost one gig.
Clearfield, UT 12-30-12 - Still on the hook for mine 20 bucks a month "device fee" and also got shafted on the rebate.. Thanks T-Mobile for making me pay for a phone you no longer care about.

Reset my phone a week ago, saw other creeping back up again, and threw in the towel. Purchased an unlocked 720 and I am happy now. So sick of the poor support from T-Mobile.
Scottsdale, AZ -11/2x/2012. $140 remaining to pay on the device. Will be paid for and sold next week. Will add a screenshot when I get back on the 810, right before decommissioning from service.

Thanks again to all who have posted so far. For those who has the Other on "decent shape", fear not...if your Other starts to get out of hand, upload that screenshot here.
Keep the pressure on T-Mobile!

Sitting fairly tight at ~4 GB - that's right, 4 useless gigs of crap. I think I will reset my phone this weekend. The most frightening part about it is that when I make calls to both Nokia and T-Mobile (good luck finding anybody at Microsoft to listen) they all respond as though they had never heard of this problem. When they do notice it is a problem then they will each state that it is the others responsibility to get the update out. The T-Mobile rep. went on to tell me that there were no plans to not support the 810 anymore. She then asked me if I knew about the Portico update!?! Wow! It does sound like we are on our own.

This is really sad. I cannot even read my email on my 810. Nothing will start because i have no memory left. Close to 5gb of "other" storage is totally unacceptable for an 8gb phone. Its basically a paperweight because no apps will open. I've already stripped it down to only the bare minimum apps that I actually need.--------------
Lumia 1520, 1020, 920, 830, 820, 810, 735, 625, 620, and 520

Keep them coming guys! Perhaps we can touch base with Daniel to see if their sources can find out if 810 users will get the GRD2 update. Maybe MSFT is keeping quiet until BUILD 2013, but folks should bookmark this thread and hammer T-Mobile if they don't come out with support for the 810!

Yesterday I was up to 4.5GB of "Other" and unable to receive e-mails due to the lack of space available on the phone.
I bit the bullet and did a hard reset.
While WP8 got the "Other" issue extremely wrong, they got the hard reset working just fine! I was re-booted and restored from their automatic backup in a few mins, it also re-installed all my apps.
Though it did not turn my alarms back on, so I over-slept this morning.
The issue is a huge bummer, but I don't see it getting any better. Don't be afraid of the "Settings > About > reset your phone"

Colorado Springs, got the 810 in April (what a drag they dumped it soon after) and paid for it up front. Other is more than 4GB.
I'm not up for the constant reset game. After I beat a game I'm almost finished I'm going to sell it and get an 820. I got an unlock code from T-Mobile for the 810. I'll buy the 820 outright and have it unlocked. This 810 and TMO have really upset me. Personally I've never had an issue with TMO as I've been with them for many years. This, however, is ridiculous. I'm through buying phones from them. It blows chunks that they killed the 810 after five months and won't update it. Lesson learned.
