    I am currently on the 1249.1002 firmware. When I check the phone update option it doesn't show me any available updates, but when I connected the phone via the Nokia Software Updater for Retail, it shows me an update of 1308.0002 available for my phone. The concern with me is that the last four digits of the latest firmware isn't going in sync with the 1002 of the currently installed firmware.

    I am worried that if I do update using the Software Updater, I may lose all my data.

    P.S. - The phone is purchased from Dubai, but it's used in India. Will that be causing an issue??

    the one you found on the software updater is the new firmware according to region but since you are flashing it through the updater, from what I know, you l be losing your data..better wait for the ota update if the data prob seems upsetting..

    and no using it in India is not the issue..
    :) Happy flashing

    I lost my data when I downloaded it but I knew that beforehand. Up to you if you want to wait for the OTA version or not. I just had to update.

    Same here, using Lumia 920 from UAE in India, but no 1308 yet. :-\
    The Nokia MEA support website shows the latest firmware for Lumia 920 as 1308.

    does Nokia Software Updater work with Lumia? I thought that was for Symbian phones only?

    still no 1308 firmware update for UAE bought 920. This is really frustrating. We always get the firmware's last. Noticed the same with the Portico update.

    Just fyi, I'm using a UK purchased unbranded unlocked 920 here in DXB on Etisalat and it was OTA updated to 1308 last week...

    As your phone was purchased in the UK you got the OTA updates releases for UK UNLOCKED L920 and not ME UNLOCKED L920. As far as i know it does not matter on which carrier you are on for the UNLOCKED phones its the series of the L920 you are using that counts.

    1308 now available in UAE for Nokia Lumia 920! Just OTA'd and took 6 mins to upgrade, 19 mins to migrate data. Seems to boot up faster. I will test more later, now back to sleep 😁

    edit 1--

    took me 3 n half mins of spinning cogs and am done....that was fast...now migrating data...

    edit 2--

    done...wifi seems fine...think they ve lowered the brightness even lower when on low mode...not sure though...volume definitely feels louder with lesser distortion at full.....am enjoying this!!!!!!

    edit 3 --

    back button vibration has been toned done as well as the rattle when the phone is on vibration has become smoother...slight improvement in camera pic sharpness.....and havent had the screen flickers after the update....

    No connectivity issues whatsoever. Battery doesn't seem to last any longer. Overall everything is working fine and got rid of 1.5 Gigs of temporary files with Storage check tool.
