    I got the message today that the update is ready to download. But I need a wifi connection for that. Is there any way I can use my 3G data connection on mobile.

    In India. But my phone is UK version from EE...I'm sure the update is there, because I get the Prompt. But I need wifi for that. Isn't that stupid? Why wouldn't nokia allow me to download on my H+ data connection?

    Your phone will only allow you to download an update that's 20MB or less on your data connection. Anything more than this requires a WiFi connection, to save you data costs. I'm on EE (Well orange, but same base network) UK and I don't have an update notification. Can you tell us your current firmware version (settings>about phone>more information) and if you can update your phone what the firmware version is after?

    in addition, WiFi is more stable, you don't want any errors downloading your 1.5Gb OS

    it's the language update, why people keep posting Amber when they didn't test it yet

    I agree with Tungha, it most likely is the language pack update and also you must be border line insane wanting to download an o/s update over 3G lol. Regardless if you are or not :p as people have said Wi Fi is more stable and it is to save data costs as well as your battery. However if OP can post screenshots with showing Amber build numbers / Logo than it would make sense as given GDR2 is also looking to be a staggered release like Portico.

    "Wifi is more stable" is not valid. Any professional update system will assume the network connection, regardless of which type, is unstable and provide error checking and correction. The update will download to the device as either a single file or several files. Before the update begins installing the system will check that those files are correct and intact. "Save me money by not using data" also is invalid for those of us with unlimited data. I'm not complaining, just trying to figure out why MS requires WiFi for their updates. Like many things in WP8 I bet it is just another unfinished feature that will be addressed in a future release.

    Don't know why in India the amber update is getting delayed. Daily checking the update but no use. I hope they will release on Monday.

    Agreed. It's the same with the Store where you're restricted to what applications and games you are allowed to download over a mobile data connection. I've also got an unlimited data plan but I'd rarely come close to using any of it if I'm not allowed to download large apps because MS said so.

    Somebody else in the thread mentioned a 20 MB limit for 3G but didn't MS increase this to 50 MB a while back?
