    Hi

    I am wondering how can I get the update for 8.1 for my 822. I got it through a developer program, it is branded as AT&T but it is factory unlocked but the thing is I live in Canada and I don't think any service provider up here ever offered the 822, so I am not sure how I can force it to update.

    ATT did not sell an 822 phone only Verizon did. Get the Developer Preview program and upgrade the device to WP 8.1.1
    Cheers.

    Right Verizon. I would like to get the non developer version of 8.1 as I want to have it run the same that an average person would run.

    You cannot, not until Verizon releases it at least. DP however is basically the same code MS released to VZW for testing.

    When Verizon releases it you will get it, no Verizon SIM card is required.

    Regardless of how much you want it, it ain't gonna happen until the carrier decides it is ready.

    Does anyone know what "testing" actually means? What are they testing?

    Anyone hear anything? I am not finding anything about this? Are they still actually planning to release this?

    Yea really, I just noticed that it now says "Under development", hopefully that means it's starting to roll out............since I don't know what they have to develop and hope they meant deployment

    Sorry, as reported on WindowsCentral.com, the firmware update was rejected by Verizon and sent back to Microsoft for redevelopment.

    Which completely sucks. And is also why I plan on dumping Verizon as soon as my contract is up. I'm fed up with them.

    I too had a 822 which I loved from day one! The Friday the 830 came out I dumped Verizon and couldn't be happier! They suck! Overrated and overpriced!

    It's possible that MS / Verizon passed directly to the Denim Update in 2015? That really would be a good thing.
    If not mistaken the Samsung Ativ passed from Amber to Cyan, maybe MS can work on this for the benefit of us.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't. Amber/cyan/denim a Lumia only update? And 8.1 is different than cyan? If I'm wrong, please correct me. If I am correct, then there's a little misinformation in this thread..

    You're correct. They aren't the same. Cyan/Denim are firmware updates for Lumia phones while 8.1 is a Microsoft OS update.

    That is my working plan at the moment. Dump Verizon and pick up an 830. How are you liking the 830?
