    Hi, on my unlocked international htc 8x I am not getting any response at all when checking for os and firmware update.
    Same whether I'm subscribed or not to developer preview.
    Just the message "checking for updates......." even after 5 minutes.
    Anyone encountered the same no response? Thanks.

    What's your OS version? I have an 8X too, and I once felt I had such a problem too.
    Do you have a slow internet connection?

    OS is 8.0.10521.155. Wonder whether its a regional update server issue.
    My internet is fine. Even Windows explorer on my phone is quick enough.

    Funny this......
    There is no reason this should happen..
    Where do you live? Could be a regional problem.

    I had the same problem after downloading The preview for developers, try a soft reset, or just restart your phone.

    Same problem here. After 2-3min it shows again:
    Your phone is up to date. Last checked about 3 months ago.

    For the dev preview did you unlock your phone using the wp 8 sdk? Signing up and installing the app on your phone does nothing in itself, it just signs you up, you have to either pay for a dev licence or download the sdk from the devolopers site, install, and use the unlock prog from your PC and then you'll eventually get the 8.1 preview though updates.

    All the tutorials says you don't have to do that: How to Install Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developers

    That worked with the GDR3 Preview too.
