    Anyone know when we can expect this? I called customer service and they told me they know 1-2 months prior to the update and still they have no information. I am assuming the lady didnt know what she was talking about. At least I hope.

    Haven't heard anything. That said, most phones don't have the official update yet.

    I got it thu the developer route as well. It was easy, but I've noticed some hesitation when launching programs occasionally.

    It's clear that HTC has already given out the update to carriers, given that AT&T has already dished it out. The blame like always is shifted to Verizon. Don't expect it soon.

    Pardon my ignorance, how do I join the developer program and update?

    If I update through the developer program, will I still get the formal update when it comes out?

    Thanks

    I'd like to know as well. My buddy joined and he said the update was different but it wasn't 8.1 can anyone confirm if it is actually 8.1?

    The update is GDR 3 (or Update 3).

    Is It possible to join the developer program for free or is the $19 the only way in?

    Windows Phone App Studio | Microsoft

    Just go to that page and it'll ask you to enter your email and password and accept some terms. That's it. Then download the app (I don't have that store link right now, but it should be easy to find on wpcentral) and update and you're done. No money required.

    OK. It took about 15 minutes, but everything seems to be a GO.

    Is anyone else experiencing huge battery drain when asleep post-GDR3?
    11-22-2013 09:46 PM
  21. garyjk's Avatar
    yes, I am. drained over 10% overnight, in the last 8 hours. I had no issues with the developer preview, so it's something Verizon has done.

    You consider 1.25%/hr a huge drain?

    yes, because after gdr2 and then the developer preview of gdr3, I was getting 4 to 5 days between charges. for example, after charging before this update, I would lose about 2% in 8 hour overnights. so, when I woke up, I would have 98%. today I have 83%. a huge difference. I have the charts to verify it, too.

    Yes...am getting this as well. Have done some soft resets and trying to track down the leak. Not sure what is going on but there is a definite problem I went from 30% to 25% to 17% in the space of a few(10 min). Overnight went down from maybe 85% to 60%....but daytime use is also spiking a drain today. Just started using Voxer...not sure if that's a trigger or not. I'm going thru my background processes to kill some that I don't use much...imagine that will help. ftr, Voxer wasn't backgrounding

    I doubt it's anything like that. I have no apps installed and mine started draining the battery as soon as the "official" gdr3 was installed. haven't had a drainage issue since gdr2 was installed ans even after the developer preview of gdr3 was installed.

    this is something Verizon did after they got their hands on the Microsoft code.
