    From what I understand, Samsug was supposed to roll out the GDR2 update to all unlocked / unbranded ATIV S owners by the end out August.

    I have not received the update, and I know I'm not alone. Someone had mentioned in another thread that a Samsung rep told him unlocked/unbranded I8750 devices would not be updated to GDR2-- don't know if this is true but we'll find out soon enough.

    Please post your phone info so everyone can keep track of this situation.

    Unlocked/Unbranded I8750
    Firmware: 2424.12.12.3
    AT&T, USA

    Phone updates are rolled out according to IMEI number so not all phones get the update at the same time. As for the information the rep gave out, it's blatantly false as you can see below:

    Unlocked/Unbranded I8750
    OS Version: 8.0.10327.77
    Firmware: 2424.13.5.1

    I am the only Ativ S user in one of my local WP forums. All the others are using Nokia handsets. They are now getting GDR2 one by one, and me... just sitting here and watch the others to upgrade .... Feeling SO BAD here in Hong Kong!

    Unbranded devices won't get the update? That doesn't make sense; I'm certain that rep is wrong.

    You know what... the GDR2 is not an update, but is like a plague spreading around the world. You don't know who would be the next to get it... I can't believe that a world class enterprise would do a thing like this... It is absolutely absurd...

    It will be annoying for the update to take more than a month to reach all devices. Updates are supposed to be one of WP's strong points.

    Well.. not with Samsung i gues. It's the same with their android phones, so i think there is nothing to do about that.

    I believe It's not like that, as Windows Phone is mostly a fixed OS. It's not an android where for example Samsung must prepare the new touchwiz UI. Nokia does some more work but again it cannot be compared.
    As for minor updates, it's known that there are many issues that should be fixed on an android device before it's out because android is a mess. Windows Phone is better at this.

    Yes and therefore i thought that Samsung should be able to deliver WP8 updates faster. But no, thay also take as long as if they had to do their own UI on Android and stuff.
