    Has anyone heard if or when we are supposed to receive this? I've been searching through heaven and hell on an answer about this - and haven't been successful.

    T M phone right ?
    TM says they've heard nothing yet ( it was a question posed on CS online Thursday I think) Just keep checking your phone.

    Go to the source next time, you'll find out from TM -they will have the most current info
    even if they are vague about it

    Decided to go ahead and do the dev sign up thing.
    GDR3 is installing on the 521 right now...well at least it's at 100%
    I don't see any restart yet it's been a while now

    Update!

    All went well.
    I don't see any problems or bugs yet.
    The phone still shows it's on Amber.

    There's a few nice features included.
    I like being able to "X" out of apps.
    The "Driving mode" is there also.

    Doing this was worthwhile.

    I've found GDR3 to be pretty stable (I have been using it since it came out). My only grip is that now my phone lags a bit here and there. Not a huge deal, just every once in a while while switching apps or going to the start screen. I am assuming that the Lumia Black firmware will fix this. Being able to close apps has been super nice and helps my ocd a ton.

    I will wait on the official release before installing on my 521. I just do not want to void my warranty.

    Glad to hear that is working okay otherwise. Can't wait for Official Release once again, the features in gdr3 I can live without.

    That's the main reason why I want this update, to close out apps quickly instead of hitting the back button over and over (thumb cramps). The other is adding customized text tones - I always miss text/emails because the ones provided aren't loud or long enough. If this doesn't arrive by the end of the month.... hello dev update.

    I'm pretty sure T-Mobile owns MetroPCS so I am assuming you will get it.

    When GDR2/Amber rolled out the T-Mobile 521, MetroPCS rolled out a few days later has well. I am expecting the same, not sure when. But it should be soon, T-Mobile has to test and make sure things like Wifi-Calling are working correctly.

    Yeah that sounds like it. If you go to extras+info does it say Lumia Black on the top?

    I had it for a while but haven't put it on my new replacement phone yet. The new features are nice but it made my phone noticeably slower, something I think the Nokia Black firmware will fix.
