    I don't get it. Really, I don't. France and GB are the two largest areas to still be waiting. Just how different can a phone be? Germany 950xl has it, and they are pretty similar, if not identical, including the radios.

    Odd. Me?, I think they've 'forgotten'. Not only are we the forgotten OS ( but the best by a mile ) we are the forgotten 500 phone buyers!!!!

    When I contacted MS, their so called agents were full of verbal cr*p. Their so called engineer said no one had an update!! I pointed out the the 2 business 950's had received an update, and my son's one had. Jeez, no wonder people are turning against them

    Maybe they wait for all the providers to update the software(s) on their sides to work with the new firmware?
    UK still waiting, unlocked version.

    I bet this is it. The ATT variants of the 950 haven't been updated either; I'm almost positive it's the carrier here, hopefully these will get published before EOY, if at all...

    Our 950's ( 3 of them ) are all on same carrier as the XL's. All are unlocked.

    If it we're a carrier issue, could you think of any reason why our 3 950's are on same carrier as the XL's, all are unlocked, non branded phones, and OTA updated last week. How could the carriers prevent the update via WDRT on an unlocked device? I can remove the sim card and still use WDRT to roll back etc. I'm not so sure about the carrier thing as my phone was bought unlocked, just an 02 sim in it. No branding, and any other sim works. As I said the 950's are also on 02. Baffled.

    Having looked into it, I have given up hope od an over air. The 4T8/9 versions are CV, which I assume to be carrier variant, so although unlocked / sim free, the update depends in what sim you have installed!

    Dumb question, could I flash the UK EE FW, if 02 remain sitting on their hands?

    CV is Country Variant not Carrier Variant. Not that it helps you any to know that. It's not yet been released for your product code, simple as that. The sim in the phone never has anything to do with update availability.

    You could flash to another Euro CV variant, or use the Interop tool registry editor to accomplish the same without flashing and losing data. Changing the values at HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\Platform\DeficeTargetingInfo for PhoneManufacturerModelName to an updated one that matches the first half (i.e. RM-1116) and possibly the PhoneMobileOperatorName (try 000-88) should be all that's required to get it to download that variant's firmware. Change the values back afterward and whenever the real one is released you should get it.

    My bad.... Just getting a bit pi**ed that I've got 3 950's all updated OTA. Would be nice to be told if there was an issue, but as rest of world, and large swathes of the EU already have it available. I twigged I'd put carrier, but mobile app isn't showing edit facility.

    Maybe I'll flash the EE one, if I'm brave enough!

    If you flash the EE one, I think you'll end up with EE branding on the phone.

    Yep, splash screen. Spoke to a friend who got more impatient than me, and he has splash screen now. He's tinkering with Thor now to try and 'unbrand' with previous FW

    If it's only just a splash screen and no other bloatware installed it could be worth installing

    You might not know what other carrier-specific settings are in that firmware, that's why they're carrier variants.

    It's possible of course that this EE variant doesn't have any meaningful changes from standard, but I wouldn't like to chance risking a loss of service/features.

    My carrier is EE anyway so I don't think it would be too bad for me. But I paid for an unlocked phone, I don't want to have to flash it to a locked variant just to get some firmware. Guess I'll keep it as it is and hope MS release the firmware to us

    It will just be a staggered roll out. It will come out eventually. Stupid to delay the UK market though. We are one of their larger markets

    UK MS bought 950xl on Three, still nothing here.

    Also not had the camera update for pannies. Slow ring, up to date.

    Yeah, this. I don't think I would be flashing to a carrier-specific firmware, unless I knew I was going to get some features (not just DTTW, as much as I'm re-addicted to it), given the potential downsides, particularly if there's something specific to that model for EE.
    I say this, using DTTW for my phone probably 50 times/day at least though, I don't understand why the unlocked UK and a few other firmware revs are held up. I do understand (at least business-wise, not philosophically) why the US ATT 950 rev is held up, possibly for a very long time.

    Edit: good quote came to mind, for those of "slightly older and probably mostly US" people, but maybe others too, "do you feel lucky, ..., well, do ya'?" ;-]

    Well seeing as there in no official Anniversary release today, I doubt we'll see the firmware today
