    As I understand it, Amber is a Firmware Update and GDR3 is an OS update - why do we lose Amber features? Unless Amber actually was GDR2?
    Yes you will.

    Ton Warren from The Verge claims that Amber features will NOT be lost.

    Considering you'll update OTA, this might be true.

    I Took The Plunge and...

    Installed on a Lumia 521 on T-Mobile....It's fabulous

    Some observations (writing as I explore settings)

    1. As I thought you DO NOT lose Amber (see my previous post) - it's still shows under "Extras and Info"
    2. Still has WiFi calling
    3. can use customized sounds for text, email and voicemail...this is BIG
    4. Automatically migrated ALL of my data - did not lose one scintilla! Solitaire even remembered my score.
    5. "Other" storage still shows about 300 MB - still do not know what that is?

    Anybody with specific questions please post and I'll try to answer them (remember I'm on a Lumia 521 so I may not be able to answer questions specific to a different device)

    Overall, the upgrade to GDR3 was painless and efficient - total time start to finish about 30 minutes (this assumes you have an App Studio or Developer account).

    I have installed Dev Center app on my phone but when I click sign in inside the app and enter my details it says the app requires an active WP Dev Center Account. I have an app studio account but not a full paid dev account, it's all tied to my same MS login. Halp?

    Still can't attach documents in email and I can't use custom tones for message or reminders. Anyone else install this on an AT&T Lumia 920 with these features not showing up? I do have closing on multi-task, driving mode, and screen rotation lock, as well as more storage options. Perhaps this is the GDR3 "Preview" and not the official yet with everything in it....

    I was also expecting Start Screen changes as well, for me live tiles rows/columns...?

    Let me get this straight.....the GDR3 update which has been released right now is a sort of RTM for devs,isn't it....they find the bugs with this version,then report to Microsoft,who fixes these and then releases the 'fixed' version to the users....so if i install it,will i get these fixes later on? Can i flash back to gdr2 using NSU?
    Thanks,

    Storage: Other is still 3GB. From Office App, I can share docs using e-mail. Is this old feature or new feature?

    The developers might find bugs but they are not responsible for the product being signed off for RTM, Microsoft's QA team is. So the answer to your first question is NO, second questions YES

    I was able to use custom ringtones on both email and text messages - dragged my mp3 sounds to the Phone>Music>Ringtone directory from my PC, then went into settings where they show up under custom when you go into Settings>Sounds. Didn't even have to reboot the phone.

    Still can't attach documents in email and I can't use custom tones for message or reminders. Anyone else install this on an AT&T Lumia 920 with these features not showing up?
