You Americans really think your the only one in the world eh ?
AT&T doesn't have an update available for now, like 3/4 of the world.
If you really want to update now open NCS and flash it yourslf. And we have an official GDR2 update thread here, no need to open new ones.

If AT&T sticks to their past M.O., then they're busy removing the features in the updates that we, as customers, really want. You know, things like Data Sense and Call and SMS Blocking, they'll take those out and offer them as a paid-for service under their name. They have already rolled out the updates for the HTC 8x though, and I believe they left those features in, so who knows?
It is a shame though that AT&T has rather poor support for their most heavily advertised phones. I'm sure that if you contact them, they'll give you some sort of BS line about 'fully testing the update'. I thought the OTA updates were supposed to eliminate the carrier interference?
If you really want to expedite the update, contact AT&T's Office of the President, they're the executive customer care advocates, they can get you the answers you're looking for. I've already emailed them today, waiting for them to respond.

What is it with American AT&T users thinking they should have had the update by now, or should have had it before any one else?
There are many other Mobile Phone carriers around the globe who are still waiting for approval.
As people said above, if you want it that badly, flash it yourself, or stop complaining and wait, just like everyone else.

I didn't know this was a competition.
Also, not everyone has the desire or ability to "flash it" themselves.
OP posted a legitimate question, if you can't provide a helpful answer, is it really necessary to be condescending?

Nokia have said their aim is for phones to be update before the end of September.
There is no need for every comment and forum thread to be filled with "Why haven't AT&T users got it yet?" and "when are AT&T users getting it" because the answer has already been provided.
In summary, it's a legitimate question. It has been answered, so stop asking for it.
At least until October, when it will be reasonable for one person to start one thread on it.

I have an AT&T 8X...Data Sense was taken out of the recent update by AT&T. It is not available. I doubt they will make it available for the Lumia line of phones. I flashed my 920 using the Rogers to French ROM method. Now running all intended upgrades like buttah. :)Sent from a warm cabin located on the eastern face of the summit of Olympus Mons.

I have said this before. When the lumia 920 was under exclusivity period with AT&T (6 months) they were delivering the updates fast and on time. Now that exclusivity period of that phone has become to an end they really don't care. Tha's what I have seen. Before there was a compromise between AT&T and Nokia, now for the 820 and 920 that compromise ended.

That's what i have notice .If you want to wait cool, wait. I didn't wanted to wait and flashed my phone. Remember one thing they are the so called " premier carrier".They should be ahead of the game. One thing I can tell you is with my last week experience I have on my local AT&T store when I wanted to buy a 520 and they wanted to sign me up for a plan and didn't wanted to sell me the phone I'm done with carriers BS. From now on all my phones are going to be international versions. I really don't care about getting LTE. I'm tire of that BS , that's why today my AT&T 920 is running GDR2 with all features as it is meant to be.Features I'm pretty sure AT&T won't give to its customers. Especially keep dreaming about having data sense. As greedy AT&T is I'm sure customers won't be getting it. Again that's MY honest and humble opinion.

This is at least the second thread dedicated to a question that was answered before the first thread was created.
It gets incredibly frustrating reading the same childish rubbish and not being able to avoid it if one wants simply to use a website.
