    So far so good. I was hoping that this would give me data sense on my ATT 920 but it did not.

    attach lets you select multiple photos.
    If you start from office hub you can select one file and then you can add multiple photos.
    So, as I understand it, it is one office file including .pdf plus multiple photos, unless I am missing something.

    It's nice to see some most-wanted features coming to WPs. Almost love everything new like the app-close, driving mode settings, auto-rotation lock and unbelievably, the update just improved the storage on my phone. Available space went up to nearly 2 gigs after the update and feels a lot better now.

    However, were we misinformed that the extra column of tiles are coming to existing 4.5" and above phones? So, 625 won't get this feature too, right? Just 5" and above it seems.

    Was hopefull that it would fix my bluetooth issue, but it did not seem to while I was testing at lunch... although I just found this option after hitting "advanced" under bluetooth....

    I'll have to wait till later to test it and see if it fixes getting the notification sound and muted music when it should be reading the text message

    Loving it thus far on my Lumia 1020. Took about 30 minutes total from download to completion, so not bad. My favorite thing thus far is the ability to force close apps from the multitasking pane, but everything else is welcome. The revamped built-in storage checker is also very nice, and I like how it gives the ability to delete temporary files (like Nokia's Storage Check, but this means non-Lumia users get the same benefits).

    This is a great update, but the thing I'm most excited about: IT BYPASSES THE CARRIERS!!!

    I'm still exploring this update. No major changes, but all the little things are more than welcome.Oh, and did I mention, we now get to bypass the carriers?

    While I too am pleased that we are now able to 'bypass carriers', I'd still like to see them take an even bigger step and re-enable features, like Datasense, that some carriers have ripped out of GDR2.

    The update in general seemed to make things even snappier.

    One thing I noticed, and this is obviously something Nokia will have to address via firmware/software update, is the fact that the Nokia Pro Cam will NOT rotate if the Screen Rotation features is locked. Stock camera will rotate regardless, but not Pro Cam.

    Trying to restore Nokia Lumia 520 after reseting using GDR3, all the updates like access points extras+info appears in the store download section but with black icon and none of them install. Tried restarting also.

    I don't think GDR3 changed anything at all in this department, at least not that I could find. Maybe I didn't test enough scenarios though.

    Nokia 521. Absolutely pleased with the way the update went. What a way to skip around the carriers. I was expecting I'd have to connect the phone to the computer by USB and have to do funny things but no... easy, install an app and just update as usual. My process took about an hour from download to "updating system" done.

    I rebooted after that and everything seems snappier. Storage check is way speedier now as someone mentioned. I am pleased by the multi-tasking feature and I am looking forward to trying out the driving mode tomorrow. If I understand correctly, I don't have to turn it on, it will somehow detect I am driving?

    I look forward to getting all the updates like this in the future. It really pleases me to know that Microsoft figured out a way around and delivering the updates to the people who really desperately must have the latest.

    With a 521, they are so cheap, might as well give it a shot and update.

    Love it so far! Only gripe is the browser seems a tiny bit slower on my 521. Closing apps is nice. May not do much but it gives me the satisfaction of managing my apps lol.

    Love it so far. Although they can be improved on, I highly appreciate Microsoft for releasing this preview.

    I love the "x" for closing apps, screen rotation and attaching documents to email.

    Although, the screen rotation could be easily assessable if it was on the multi-task screen in a corner instead of going through to settings.

    Also, make it more intuitive to attach not only one but multiple documents in your emails from the email app.

    I'm sure Microsoft will be monitoring these forums to see the biggest gripes and hopefully address them in the full GDR2 release.

    Wait, what about notifications? This is the first I've heard of GDR3 bringing notification improvements.

    I tried going into the Driving Mode settings. I get to the screen where it asks if I want to set up a bluetooth device, I dont have bluetooth, so I'd like to just skip this step. but the "next" button is grayed out. is driving mode set up fully at this point? and how do I turn it on? thanks
