    Today, (a few minutes ago actually), I received a notification on my lumia about a new Phone Update available to download. My device is a Lumia 520 running GDR3 which I installed last month. I don't know what this update is about as no other information was provided besides "Nokia Update". Have any of you received an update today?

    I can say that it is not Black (obviously) and I don't notice any new features and my phone seems to run the same prior to the update so its most likely bug fixes.

    Update:
    After this update, I can no longer enter field test mode to force 3G on my phone ): as ##3282# no longer works.

    It's the official version I believe, do you have the developer's version.

    Then I think it's the official update version that should also have firmware update.

    It is absolutely not Black also not about Microsoft's own updates so it is most probably about the Amber

    Didn't they announced the new updates will not come from carriers directly from Microsoft?

    It could be one of the Amber fixes Nokia released recently. Of the noticeable changes, it now enables you to choose between Bing and Google in IE. Some Amber updates caused IE to display Bing twice as a default search engine option.

    The update caused whatsapp to stop using my custom notification sound. And field test is no more ):

    What I meant was that whatsapp no longer uses the tone I set under ringtones and sounds.
