    As a fellow Verizon customer, I understand the frustration. Verizon is slow as Christmas when it comes to updating, as they test the update more than any other carrier. However, in this case, I am glad they are taking their time. I have read all sorts of posts here about HTC 8xs bricking after the update. Just be patient. It will be worth it.

    I have been checking daily for updates manually with my 822. I think it'll come in mid-August as well, but is the new firmware coming as well? I can only hope.

    Someone said in these forums that the update would come on August 14. I don't remember his source, but that day is today. I wonder if anyone, with any Lumia, will be getting some update today.

    I did hear August 14th multiple times , however apparently that date was for an Australian carrier, I'm wondering if flashing is the way to go. I'm just worried about having issues in the future with updates coming thru

    Okay the 928 already has the GDR2/Amber update OTA.

    Now where's the OTA for 822? C'mon Verizon!!!

    Heck! Even T-Mo's 521 and the EOL'd 810 has it.

    ^ At this rate, even if GDR2 makes it to the 822.

    I doubt GDR3 will make it to the 822

    Don't. You'd be wrong. 822 is most definitely getting it.

    VZW is usually "slower" with update releases (one could argue that it helps with VZW network stability) but GDR2 is coming soon.

    I'm sure GDR2 is coming.

    GDR3 is the one I'm doubting (Though I'd love to be proven wrong)
