    With more and more Windows Phone 8 devices getting GDR2, everyone is dying to know when their device will receive the update. Some of you may or may not know what is included or how it will make your phone better. This guide should provide everything you need!

    Has my update been released?
    Go to the settings and then check to see if you have an update available, (Settings -> Phone update -> Check for updates). If the update is available, you'll have to be on a WiFi connection to download any system updates over 20MB in size (and GDR2 is definitely over 20MB!)


    What is included in GDR2?

    Fixes Low Res “Me” Tile Pictures - For more details, Click Here

    FM Radio - Back from the dead! It is now included on WP8 phones. You can find it in your Music & Video Hub.

    Data Sense - It is now available for more phones. For more details, Click Here.

    Change Default Camera Lens/App - Name says it all!

    CardDAV and CalDAV Support - Now sync your calender and contacts from services that use these standards!

    HTML5 Improvements - Now view HTML5 sites better in IE! Pages should load faster and with less errors!

    Lynx and Skype Stability Improvements


    Do you have some new information to share? Post it here!

    I'm confused with this thread, since the 8XT comes preloaded with GDR2.

    Does this show your phone not having the update yet, but you just verified receiving it? Post it here!
    I would be very surprised if anyone here has an 8xt that hasn't gotten the GDR2 update, seeing how that is the shipping OS from day one :)
