    If they will skip GDR2 update for Worldwide release and release the GDR3 instead, it would be okay for me.
    You are right, but if they skip also gdr3? If they could skip an update, they can do it twice.. The problem is that nobody knows nothing about the GDR2 update for this device. If you ask on FB/TW page of Huawei they won't answer... The only thing we know is that chinese and english w1 has recived this update..
    If Huawei will also skip GDR3, well fu*k them! Microsoft should revoke their license soon if that happens.
    You can fool a customer sometimes, but not everytime.
    Huawei will loose sales in long term, well atleast wp8 sales, they do sell a lot of droid phones [p6 is a good model].

    Hi

    I have a Huawei W1. In some days my phone will be useless because of the “other folder” problem. It will be solved if you deliver the Windows Mobile GDR2 update.

    See more details here:

    Please take actions for this critical problem.

    What the F*CK IS HUAWEI DOING? I went to a several Huawei service centers here in the Philippines and they act so stupid as if they do not know that an Ascend W1 exists in their product line up.


    UPDATE: I just called Globe Telecom (9:30PM PST +8) Customer Care and they said that they do not release any WP8 updates for any brand. I just did this since Microsoft referred me to call a mobile carrier.
    Globe Telecom offers Nokia 520, 620, 820 and Huawei W1 for their postpaid plans.

    It is unfair that they only gave the update to UK and some countries where the phone is branded.

    I'll try to call Huawei Philippines main office tomorrow so at least we can know their real reason behind this brouhaha.

    Install this storage management ROM
    Latest Huawei Ascend W1 ROM includes Storage Manager | WMPoweruser
    (Please don't ask me how), I have nothing against anyone here, but I hate the way Huawei does business.

    In that case you can flash your phone to UK ROM (I hope this video is correct?)

    As much as I want to, I will not do it since I don't want to do it since I want to experience how WP8 does its updates. It is just disturbing that the GDR2 update can only be received by those who are in UK. If Huawei will announce that they will skip GDR2 updates like what HTC did, I will still understand them.

    in other words, you were trolled by Huawei. lol
    I guess some phone makers just want the money from the phone and don't really care supporting it after that. that's something you should learn, especially if you are behind a carrier, and then the phone maker nor the carrier care much about updating anything, probably they know most people wont update their phones anyway, so they just don't care about it.

    I asked Huawei Czech Republic about GDR2:

    Huawei Device CZ / SK
    23 hours ago


    Hello, I would like to ask when it will be available for Ascend W1 GDR2 or if it skips directly to GDR3? Or, Huawei has discontinued support? I know that in England they have already GDR2 two months, I also know that updates create Microsoft but Huawei must send it to customers. Thank you in advance for your answer.

    Huawei Device CZ / SK Hello Luke, GDR2 is currently under development and soon will be available to users of the operator O2 and then for others. Have a nice day. Mirek

    soon = could be a day, a week, a month, a year or forever.

    I am sorry but all I could do was laugh n your comment.
    Huawei is not a small company, they may be based in China, but they have huge sales volume.

    You could, repeat 'could' talk to them on their twitter/Facebook page (if they have any) and ask them about updates, also ask fellow w1 owners to join you.

    Its social media which creates a buzz, if you feel that 100 people send an email to Huawei with a hope that they will bow down, you are wrong my friend. Huawei is not a wp8 player, it plays in Android market, they can abandon wp8 completely if they want to.

    Well, if they do that, the costumers should also abandon the Huawei,

    Maybe next time, costumers should make a wise decision in purchasing a smartphone, If they wanted a full support from the manufacturer they should first research the backgrounds of each

    Thank you.

    Only wp customers would abandon them, they treat their android fans like 'your majesty' kinda thing.
    I don't like that company either way, known for making cheapish chinese toys with poor after sales support, atleast in my country.
