    I haven't gone and looked at the 925. I'm stuck with the 810 for awhile ($ wise), not sure when I'll jump to another phone (need a new laptop/tablet first). But when I do, it will be a Unbranded, Unlocked device. Hopefully when that time comes, there will be some sort of selection from Nokia or someone else in the Windows Phone lineup.
    i'm with ya.. well not because of the $ but because of not having it supported by TMo... however, it still a solid device for use on a daily basis, so will hang on to this bad boy til i see an opportunity to snag a 920 unlocked for a steal.

    I actually don't find that amusing. If this site were helping to put pressure on 810, it would help. As it is, WPCentral is acting like this problem doesn't exist because it might put a negative light on WP.

    Well, my 810's days have been numbered...since 09/01/12 - the manufactured date.

    I may still keep mine because I'm too broke & jaded to buy a new phone. This is my last contract related, carrier phone. Ever.
    Sad, but I will be switching to an iPhone if there is no Amber update. I can't deal with the music and storage issues.

    Until Microsoft realizes the issue and pushes their own updates, I don't want to deal with this OS.

    Oh ya, I'm going to hang onto my 810. I really, REALLY like it. For how I use it, it is absolutely perfect. The physical size is just right, microSD support, wireless charging, sensitive touch, the camera is perfect for what I take pictures of, and removable battery. It has ALL the features that I want and need.

    I keep looking at all the new phones coming out, and I look back at my 810 and realize, this device is still the device I want and need. The only things that would make it perfect is, more on board storage, LTE and more radio frequencies support (i.e. "world phone"), and T-mobile to give us all the F&#*%!G updates it deserves! Emphasis on the last!!!

    Storage is one thing and Music would be another but to me, it's not really affecting me too much... guess it depends on each individual preferences... but generally i agree with you that these features need some major fixing (who knows if it'll ever happen)... problem is even if MS or Nokia rolls out the update, it will still have to go through carrier since its carrier exclusive - like a freagen road block. Pretty much what killed this device as far as update-wise. I will believe it when i see it. We all just have to hang on til summer's over to determine the fate of 810 which by then all WP8 should have received or will start receiving the Amber from Nokia and most likely GDR2 from MS (even though well more than 50% of 810 owners believe that we will not get anymore support)

    I guess when I called them out, they didn't like it.

    And I was wrong about them.

    Anyway, thanks to whoever is paying attention.

    I think the active, constant, ongoing conversations here, on Nokia, on MS Help, T Mobile Facefoot ( in mouth)
    and T Mobile Support Community has been the reason why this has (hopefully) resulted in an actual update for 810 owners.
    - I'm still not holding my breath.

    Forgive me if I'm not doing cartwheels at Daniel's article on t-mo testing GDR2 for the 810, but waazzuuppp mentioned this weeks ago. Frankly, I only care if it ready for release....not it being leaked "OMG! They're testing it!" to placate me.

    Roger that but we 810'rs are starving for any type of info even if it is a crumb. Snap shot at least tells me they are really testing it, if they pull it there will be hell to pay no doubt. Dangle the carrot and then never get it would be the worst case scenario on their part.

    They did that before...see what happened with the Radar and Lumia 710. Unlocked is my way forward. I saw the international Ativ S on sale someplace for $300 and if I had the cash, I'd buy it. Personally, I don't think the 925 will sell as well as t-mo hopes. I hope I'm proven wrong, but I won't be surprised if the 925 gets the EOL treatment.

    The GDR2 and Amber will make this device a sleeper... like a freagen lowly Civic W/ Swap motor and a TURBO.

    I like my 810, but I'll believe it when I see it....I'm willing to bet that the Lumia 810 won't get an update until after T-Mobile moves the Lumia 925...(I hate to sound like ants at a picnic)

    figures this would get announced the day after I ditched my 810 for a 925...

    BTW I don't know if it's because my wife worked some voodoo on the CSR rep or something, but they (TMO) let us buy 2 925's and switch to the value plan + Jump, and they WAIVED the $400 contract term fee after she gave them a sob story about our 810's not getting updates, out of memory, etc... So basically we paid $170 after tax and fees for the 2 925's, we kept out 810's (which will get sold) and our monthly bill stayed the same. Phenomenal.

    Post the contract with your personal info blacked out so we can tell TM that "someone" got this deal and we will have proof when I sent them of the actual deal and ask for the same.

    $85. per phone is a big loss for TM why would they do that ? and not have you pay monthly for the phone >
    As they say on forums "without pictures it didn't happen".
    -2 new 925's and they were only $85. per phone?
    and you don't owe anymore on the phones ? A Phenomenal TALE -what am I missing in your story ?

    Nah he's making the 20.00 payments so his bill will be forty dollars more a month, how he got to keep the 810's is another mystery.

    He need pictures with a newspaper ( something that was around a lot of years ago) with the current date and the 2- 810s taken with the 925 or it didn't happen.
    Those are forum rules enforced universally.

    2 925s for $170 after taxes and fees!? and $400 early term fee waived just coz his wife did a lil magic sweet talk on the rep!? and gets to keep the 810!?.. GTFO lol...... that's beyond unimaginable profit loss to TMO or should i say "RAPED" lol... i'll believe it when we see the proof of this too good to be true transaction...
