    Exactly, I thought getting this phone would be similar to buying a Nexus if on Android. I'll learn from this and just get a locked phone if I stay with windows phone after this
    I empathize with you, but this isn't an unlocked phone issue. It's a country variant issue. You could technically have an unlocked phone with a carrier's firmware and have the Cyan update by now.

    Fine but that's overlooking the value that earns this phone the Unicorn name. You can't get a locked Windows phone on TMo with specs that come close to this. The AT&T version has half the storage and needs a case for wireless charging. There are good reasons why there's a market for unlocked phones.

    One thing I don't understand is the concept of the "country variant." We've purchased phones that were intended for Latin America. There are 18 countries listed under Latin America on the Nokia site. Is there a different flavor of Cyan for each one? Which country's variant are we waiting on? Why isn't there a "hemisphere variant?" And why should any carrier version be ready before the "country variant?" Inquiring minds....

    Lol. I feel your pain.

    Something tells me that Nokia/Microsoft doesn't have a satisfactory answer to the 'update before carriers' question. It's absolutely asinine, asiten, asieleven.

    I hear you and I'm not taking anything away from the phone. I still brag about how great different things are about it. It's just that I thought one of those great things would also be being first in line for updates. Since nothing is missing on the 1520.3 and they shouldn't have to make any changes software wise because some carrier didn't want QI charging or they wanted less memory. Not having most of the additions 8.1 brings, and being restricted on what apps I can install is a pain. This the the flagship of their flagship so they should treat it as such

    Early this morning Nokia Care asked me to DM them my IMEI number as well as where I purchased the device. Did that, and just a while ago they asked me to also send my name and location -_-. Not sure how that'll help them answer my question, but I sent that info as well. Waiting to hear back.

    yeah I don't think I would be giving them that information but let us know what happens as this story goes on. Coming from Android, I was expecting my unicorn to receive the update immediately

    Does anyone know what region in LTA these phones' firmware would correspond to?

    I just checked... nada for me... Do we have to go through the downgrade to 8.0 first?

    I'll send you a pic as soon as it's done :). I'm not even sure if it's Cyan, but what else could it be? Currently installing... gears a-turnin' on my display.

    By all accounts, yes you do. But I never updated to the DP to begin with.

    Is anyone else seeing the update? Kinda creepy that I got it just a few hours after sending Nokia Care my IMEI and some personal info. But if it's indeed Cyan, not to mention the Cyan for our variant, then I'm not complaining.

    Just to confirm, it IS indeed Cyan. Not finished updating (currently migrating data), but one of the prompts said that it was Windows Phone 8.1. Can only be Cyan since it's not the DP.

    Wow, this is awesome news!! I just hate the thought of having to downgrade first though. I have some apps installed on the internal memory and some on the microSD card along with videos, music and photos. Once I get updated with the 8.1 w/Cyan will it reformat my microSD card too?

    I am not sure as I don't use an SD Card. AFAIK it does as you would (and it makes sense) to have to reinstall apps on new firmware/OS but please don't take my word for it. I am sure if you did a search someone else asked the same question
