    Bell in Canada. Got the preview then a week or so later, got the official GDR3 with firmware updates! Impressed after taking so long for GDR2.

    MS said that all wp updates are cumulative then why 3 are there 3 OS updates while installing gdr3?

    Got it a few days ago from Verizon Wireless here in the US. Battery life appears to have dropped down dramatically.

    People posting simple "I got it" responses don't really mean anything. It all depends on your carrier. If you got it, please mention what from what carrier. That said . . .

    I wasn't looking for an update because I am rarely on my phone anymore since I picked up the Surface 2. But yesterday, my phone downloaded a new update. I'm not sure what it was, but assume it was the gdr3 since it took a while to download and install. Verizon, USA

    On side note. Microsoft was aware of a problem with the gdr2 update in that during random text messages, it wasn't unusual to get "can't send message" when trying to send an sms. Supposedly, the gdr3 was supposed to correct that (among other updates).

    I bought my htcf8x in Greece, and found that it is locked in the Australia region- at least that s how the tech explained it to me... I don t think it s locked to a specific carrier (my Vodafone sim worked without problem), since I don't get any carrier logo on startup. Needless to say, I haven't as of yet received the gdr3 update. How much longer will we have to wait before HTC releases it in Australia|????

    A friend of mine bought an unlocked one in Romania. He's on Orange and he still hasn't got it.

    He's still stuck on GDR1.

    Got an unlocked one from Romania. Contacted HTC and they say it's an unlocked device, but branded by Vodafone Australia. And my device is still on GDR1, so it's pretty possible :)
    I don't know if HTC Australia or Vodafone Australia but someone is bull****ing with their customers. Sad.

    Mine 8x as well is still on GDR3. It is unlocked device in Latvia (Eastern Europe). I am bit confused, why there is still no update. It is the middle of December already.
