    When is the general/public release of GDR3 for those who didn't do the developers release if it? Have I overlooked where it says, or is there an estimated date? Thanks!

    Edit: I just went ahead and did the developers update after all. Lol.

    Installing now!!! On the gears.

    Very easy process so far. Im tempted to hard reset after just because i like starting from scratch with everything new :) and its a good excuse to remove apps i dont use but dont want to delete lol

    Wow whilst posting this, gears part is over. :)

    It looks like some people have already updated their Lumia 928 to GDR3...but when I check my own Lumia 928, it says there isn't an update available. Does anyone know what's going on??

    You have to have a developer account. You can do it for free. Read around in the forum or search the news in the main page of wpcentral to find the steps.

    If you folllow the links in the majority of the gdr3 posts, you can login with outlook details and register for an app studio account which is free and then you cab use the preview for developers app to enable the developer preview download.

    I love it so far, im looking forward to seeing how it progresses

    Updated to GDR3 yesterday. The whole process took around 30 mins from downloading to updating. Surprisingly it took more time in preparing to install then installing (spinning gears) the update itself. Started at 75% battery and ended up with being 65% left. So far so good but currently I'm not liking the battery drain at all.

    I updated my 920 when this came out and since then have not been able to sync my phone using usb. I believe I used to be able to connect the phone to the computer using usb and access the media files on the phone. Is that correct - cant really remember now.
    However, now when I connect via usb, nothing happens. Even the Windows Phone Desktop app for Win8.1 does not pick up my 920. Am I the only one?
    Cheers

    I can't answer that, but I can say that my 920 works perfectly over USB after GDR3.

    I had the same issue with Win 8.1 although I'm on GDR2. I just had to switch to the original Nokia cable and it worked...

    Don't know if this is a new feature, but I have noticed that when I move tiles in start screen ,the moving tile is actually translucent, i can see through it. Found this just now ,after updating to gdr3.(was this already there in pre gdr3???)

    Its been more than 30 hours after I updated my L72O and now my phone feels really smooth and snappy. after amber it was always kind of felt heavy or laggy to use, now its much better, my battery is getting stable too ,,prior to gdr 3 its charge rate was dropped to 22 30% but now its charging at 40%...I managed to clear around 536 mbs of temporary files through storage check for the first time....all in all its been a good update with no bugs or issues found....
    How about after you turn off your phone, doesnt it restart itself?

    So, any major downers in upgrading to this for 1020 owners?*
    Do any features in GDR2 disappear from GDR3, or is there any perf/stability issues?
    Just checking before I go ahead, as there's no going back once done!

    TIA.
    *I'm now sub'd to this thread & these 2, so at least from now on I'll be somewhat "in-the-loop":

    Yeah I know, just double-checking...
    What about bug/perf. issues that aren't quite squished, or have potentially been triggered by GDR3, any significant issues there?

    Thank for confirming, if others can corroborate your experience that'd be appreciated.
    I've already done it several hrs ago anyway, but it'd still be nice to hear from others...

    Except for improper icons and a few minute glitches, I don't think you'll be facing any major issues. I've been using GDR3(preview) from the time it was available. Haven't faced any major issues yet. Battery backup also seemed to have improved for me. But that's something which varies from user to user depending on the usage of the phone.
