    ... Am I the only one who's not that excited or thrilled to see these updates come? I mean, no doubt it'll bring some better / good improvements to the device but where's the fire? LOL couldn't wait for OTA?

    Yes!
    If double tap to unlock and glace and peek screens aren't exciting enough, the fix for Xbox music and over all smoothness (like one we had in WP7) is back!

    - Radio FM
    - Nokia Pro Cam (a loooot better than stock camera app)
    - Tap to unlock (+glance)
    - DataSense

    Amber is great.

    haha.. i understand how others are excited but.. flashing it manually to your device could trigger stuff that may malfunction (just my 2 cents) whereas OTA could be well worth the wait.

    I have some flashing experiencies (my Lumia 710 with several roms and Android phones), and I know there are some risks. For people without experience the best choice is wait to OTA.

    Want Amber/GD2 on my 920. What is AT&T doing? I wish MS could find a way to update directly vs. going through carriers. Carriers should get a separate update like Nokia gets but why not just OTA core system update directly from MS?

    I'm also waiting on the OTA updates. I'm confident they'll eventually come to my unlocked Rogers 920 that I use on T-Mobile. Hoping also that the 810, which I also still have, gets them, although I won't hold my breath on an official release for that one.

    stable LTE connection, fast resume is really fast now(press start and press back), no more resuming.
    no more random restart when data is turned on with low signal, at least for now.

    For the millionth time to people complaining about the update. IT WILL COME! Hijacking another thread and voicing how much you wish updates were straight from Nokia wont make it happen any faster.

    LMAO. Are you retarted or what? Even unlocked Nokia's haven't received the update yet! So no blaming AT&T this time.
