    All firmware version of 53xx, 54xx of Ascend W1 can be updated to 05600,5610,or 5620 now, depending on the time your phone was made. (Chinese Us& Russia version) Fix some problems: Sound improvements, battery status improved, and fix display errors on earlier made versions, also improved camera. Add apn settings and Huawei Hub!!!

    What's your firmware version? You can see it in Settings- about -more-software version, if it is 5600/5610/5620, it is the newest, otherwise you have to wait...

    Saw it. Your phone is probably made on February, which only have minor problems. My w1 is a February one too. Maybe there will take sometime for your carrier to verify and bring the OTA update. The Chinese , US and Russian update allow internet sharing and apn switching.

    Huawei hub is just a Huawei app which provide instant access to download nice app.
    Maybe it will provide Huawei's app for W1 in the future.
    Service may vary in different region/countries.
    056xx all are currently the newest versions.

    well, your phone is O2 version, so that depends on your operator, if you like, you can flash your firmware, but not recommended.
    I believe that you can at least receive gdr2 update.

    It is actually rather frustrating knowing that there is an update out there but that i cannot use it, yes i should be able to update to the gdpr3 or even gdpr3 in the future but i have been having small issues with the screen blacking out when making calls so i cannot change to speaker phone or enter on the keyboard, then it sorts itself out, i am sure this is a simple fix that has been resolved but i sit with the issue until Huawei decides to do something about it, i am really starting to wonder if it was a good idea to get an huawei.
    Now from what i have read Microsoft will update the Microsoft software and add in the huawei updates at the same time, I just hope they don't withhold the next update until Huawei has sorted out its problems.

    I popped into an o2 shop at lunchtime and asked one of their Guru's, who sadly didn't know the answer.

    I have unlocked my phone and I am running with an Vodafone sim, so I don't know if that will affect my ability to get an OTA update or not?

    Somewhat annoyed this feature is missing, as it is even listed on the o2 website for the W1. I feel like I have been cheated out of useful features which even my old HTC Trophy 7 supported :-(

    Mine has just updated to:
    - firmware version: 1030.5614.16900.20900
    - OS: 8.0.10327.77

    Oddly though, no sign of Internet (Connection) Sharing though...

    I did read, somewhere, that after the update you have to do a factory reset to get Internet Connection sharing to work.....

    I backed up my phone then did a settings | about | reset

    Phone then booted up, but could not access the internet with vodafone sim (due to not knowing the APN), so I had to put in an o2 sim. Then I restored my last backup and all my data came back, along with Internet Sharing so it seems to work.

    Once I started it up with my Vodafone sim in it it mentioned different tarrifs - Vodafone Postpay and Vodafone Prepay, so it might know the new Vodafone APNs now - haven't check that bit yet.

    The only downside was having to stick 10 of credit onto a PAYG o2 sim :-(
