    Say, is it the official or "leaked" firmware?
    And you saying its lacking on the cool features that come with GDR2, available on Lumias?

    It is missing everything, there is literally nothing new... I am talking about the official GDR2

    Yes, I received the GDR2 update last night (or at least I think I did). It's identical. No new features. There are CalDAV & CardDAV mentions in the GMail settings, but I can't remember if they were there before.

    As a recent convert to Windows Phone, I'm beginning to feel that Microsoft has a deathwish with regards to this platform...

    The "other" section is still the same-ish. I had to reboot the phone and restore all my settings to download the update. I am from London, England.

    I got the official update and by the way guys i heard that when a company makes a deal with microsoft to use the windows phone 8 platform they have to update the phone software to the latest so when ever there is a update we would get the update as well so when gdr3 is out we would get it as well and because huawei isnt adding anything and o2 doesnt as well we would get it relatively fast :D and for the other folder there is a bit of a fix which doesnt really help too much but basically what it does is it doesnt save the .xap files in the other folder any more so you can download as much as you want from the store and not do the " SD CARD" process :D

    Huawei Ascend W1 will all ways be updated to latest software because in microsofts terms and conditions for wp8 all devices will be updated to latest software even if huawei isnt contributing to anything.

    This is the statement :D "all Windows Phone 8 devices will receive software support for at least 36 months after their release."

    I installed this update, made phone more reliable, the other storage is much better and i have internet sharing which is ace on this phone but as huawei make dongles it should be. However i had to do a hard reset to get the internet sharing working. I never heard that huawei had stopped windows phone support they just released the W2? Shame cos the price and what you get it fantastic

    Thanks Daniel

    I'd being trying tether-x to get tethering on my O2 W1 ( in the UK ) but its a bit of a pain. As an alternative, didn't fancy trying to reflash the rom ( even if I could have followed the postings on this ) in case I bricked it.

    The firmware ( 5614) updated today OTA - after several attempts to get it to update over the past week.

    Like you, I had to do a factory reset to get the internet sharing to show in the settings menu.

    Will now unlock it and and swap over to my usual T mobile sim.

    Thanks

    Richard
