    Hey all, like many of you I have been debating whether to go ahead and flash my phone or wait for Rogers to release the GDR2 and Amber Update.


    I tried contacting the RogersHelp Twitter and just received this update from one of their reps, Nicolas

    In reply to Mister Gore
    Nicolas @ Rogers@RogersNicolas 29m
    @Mister_Gore Hi, the update is now out so you should be able to get it.





    So has anyone had any luck or gotten any other info from Rogers? I am wondering if maybe he misunderstood the question lol

    Glad I'm not the only one. I've never been on WP8 for an update before (I flashed Portico before it would have hit my phone) so I am not sure if they stagger their releases or what the process is.


    I keep wanting to flash it, then with the whole emulator drama saga I've been going back and forth. The only thing that would upset me is losing all my game progress for my Xbox Live games, which I openly admit to having too many of, but if I can avoid that I will. The other part of me wants to flash it as I am helping with the EmiPSX beta and having problems and wondering if starting fresh will help with that.

    It shouldn't be a staggered release. When the Portico update was released I got it right away, as did my friends. I think there is some miscommunication within Rogers as to when it is releasing, he might be thinking be thinking of the Ativ S update. As SchueyF1 said, he has other tweets saying the same thing to people, so maybe he is just confused here.

    Yeah, you're right about Portico. Either the switch hasn't been flipped yet or he is thinking of the Ativ :(

    Based on how everyone who asked has called him out and the account has gone quiet, I think we have our answer unfortunately.

    Rogers reps are often clueless when it comes to WP8, so I think this guy is talking about the GDR2 release for ATIV

    Which is really sad since every single tweet specifically mentions the 920 lol

    Yep I guess he thinks that the question was with the AtivS since I've asked Rogershelp and Nicholas replied saying it was out. But in my question I've asked the Ambrr update which is only to the Nokia devices.....no update for me yet.

    Anxiously waiting for this update. I just hope DATA SENSE will be included. I read on other forums that Rogers didn't include DATA SENSE in the Samsung AtivS GDR2 update...

    Brutal. No way I'm doing that. It has been a long time since I have done a hard reset and I don't feel like losing my data. I just hope it comes soon, pretty anxious for it :)

    Source? If that was the case why not just flash the phone then?

    I honestly wouldn't count on Data Sense being supported. So far only Bell is supporting it, and Rogers really doesn't seem to give a s**t about their Windows Phone users.

    Which is really sad since every single tweet specifically mentions the 920 lol
    I would say what's even sadder is that Rogers is supposed to be a premium Windows Phone partner. I guess to be premium partner it doesn't take much (still no visual voicemail support, no Data Sense, no Nokia Music carrier billing, uninformed reps).

    Ok, I'm done my rant for today lol.

    Doing the hard reset to get Data Sense might just be a Samsung issue. No point assuming that the same will be the case for the 920

    I've gotten another response from the rep and he and me have DMed info back and forth. Will post an update as soon as I get more info. Who knows, maybe it will be out sooner than we thought?

    I called customer support today and they said there are updates for Windows Phone for the Nokia Lumia 920 on August 8 and October 17.
    The Amber update will be released on August 8 and I think their next update, which is GDR3, will be released on October 17th

    Well, even though I'm kind of anxious of getting this update, I'm not gonna be the first one to install it. I'll wait and see and if it is also the case, I'll just wait for a fix.

    There is no way I'll hard reset my phone and loose all my settings etc...
