    ILL just leave this here... Announcing our third Windows Phone 8 update

    Support for bigger, higher-resolution screens

    So the new update paves the way for future Windows Phone devices with 5- and 6-inch touch screens. The larger, 1080p HD displays on these devices will make Windows Phone even more personal—for example by sporting jumbo-sized Start screens with room for six Live Tiles across instead of four.

    They reported earlier this invalidates your warranty. Is that true?
    Does it just invalidate the default limited warranty or also the extended MS Assure accidental coverage as well?

    You can't get apps in this region. You can check the Windows Phone Store in your home region to see if the app is available there. baaah
    edit: I got it now :)

    Got it installed on my 920. Guess what? It fixed the photos bug Nokia brought in amber. Photos do not have that yellow tint and look crisp and perfect.

    Heh.. I dont care about the 20$, just wondering why the update isnt showing up :O
    I think if you go for the $20 route, you need to download windows phone 8 sdk, then connect the phone to your pc through USB cable and dev unlock the phone.

    Installed it here as well and am very pleased! The only problem I found is that I was really looking forward to muting specific contacts (eg. groupme numbers for sms delivery), and was frustrated that there is no way to set it to "no ringtone" for a specific contact.

    Fortunately, the old workaround of a silent MP3 works perfectly. For convenience of anyone else, unzip the attached MP3 and you will have a "silent" ringtone option. (the zip file is a silent MP3 file)

    For some reason, it hasn't asked me to restart my device it. It usually does after each update.

    I had the opposite thing happen. The GDR3 update broke my live tiles completely (even opening and closing the app didn't update the tile), but I seem to have gotten thing going again with the usual repin all tiles, block all background tasks, soft reset, power off/on, etc. Let's see if they continue to update now but all seems well for nearly 2 hours.

    I've had them break before with the Portico update and the last time I ended up flashing the phone again to get them going. The Amber/GDR2 update didn't break them at all.

    I don't think it changed the camera settings, I would think that Bittersweet would fix that issue.

    for god sake tell us if it incease the number of tiles or not!!!
    Nope, it doesn't seem to support it...yet. I think it's called "GDR3 Preview" for reason. Maybe this implies we'll get more features a little later.

    Anything on volume control? It was rumored about 6 weeks ago that GDR3 would allow you to have separate volume for apps and phone services, etc.
    I guess I will answer my own question in case anyone else is interested. Separate volume settings is not available in this release.

    Is it just me or is GDR3 like 10x faster and smoother than GDR2!? App load times, smoothness, animations, etc are faster! On a HTC 8X Tmobile.

    GDR3 Preview update installed flawlessly ! Anticipating this OS being on par with IOS & Android in a reasonable time frame.
