    The cv gb rom has to support all uk carriers so it makes sense for Nokia to wait until most or all of the carriers have approved the update! If for instance Nokia release the update but there is a problem with compatibility on say o2, the people affected will get onto o2 not Nokia. It's called playing it safe and it's not just Nokia, lots of manufacturers leave the sim free software till last.
    I have an idea about the update process.
    With Portico and Amber two or three weeks before the OTA updates rolled out some of the new ROM's appeared on the NCS servers for a few hours and were then removed. I think this is the window where operators are told to download their test ROM for their Techs to test on handsets.
    This would explain why the Country Variant ROM's never appear during these "windows" and are one of the last to be released. Because the CV rom is basically tested by all of the operators it just has none of their branding or apps.

    Which tariff are you on!? :O If the EE tariffs are as per their website and you only get 3GB for that much, I advise you don't look at Vodafone's tariffs :/

    looks like Three UK now has a "coming soon", leaving EE alone in "waiting for approval"
    Saw that as well after I got a tweet back from 3 "This is currently being tested, we dont yet have a date for rollout but keep an eye out on Twitter for updates. Thanks >AK"

    If you try this can you confirm if we have DataSense and confirm that I will get future updates just like normal from this ROM? If we do I might just flash this.

    sure, flashing now to find out :)

    EDIT: Data Sense is included in the EE ROM, all other stuff like Pro Cam, Smart Cam, are all available. I can't tell whether this is the final build or not, it most probably is and you will be able to get future updates.

    I flashed the French ROM and got DataSense, Call and SMS blocking, Radio, everything I believe.
    I'm not sure about allowing the OTA update from EE to install on this 920, just in case I lose something lol.

    you won't get the OTA from EE anymore because OTAs are determined by the ROM you flashed.

    Hmmmm. I'll let others test the EE update first and then maybe flash it again then :)

    i forget the exact specs but its 46 for 3gb+unlimited texts/mins, had this since launch in Oct '12. As it turns out, im not far from WiFi between home and work so my usage is fine. Of course i would like unlimited data etc (and certainly a 10gb allowance for the same cash...) but, hey, that's life.

    I knew enough at the time to know i would be paying through the nose for this device (920) and tbh, I have no huge complaints with EE thus far(gdr2/amber aside..), nearly 12 mo into my contract. I would have preferred a 12mo contract but at launch, but those tariffs were ridiculous.

    As an aside, I was in London recently and the EE 4g coverage was amazingly BAD. That was a surprising disappointment. I've found 4G where i am (NW England) to be pretty decent. Still glad I went with the 920 to take me through the next couple of years of the WP8 rollercoaster...

    I'm on the same 3GB tariff at 46 a month too. I've also noticed that the 4G signal where I am is actually quite decent (near Burnley, Lancs).

    What about your other storage?

    The only thing I need to know before I flash it is whether I'd still get future OTA updates from this rom?

    What about it??? LOL...

    I've never had a problem with other storage. Mine's sitting at 450 MB at the moment.
    It is supposed to be fixed in Amber, but as I've never had the problem, or any problem with my 920, I can't comment...

    not sure yet, GDR2 fixes the problem, but I don't think GEDDEEEE will know because to install this ROM, you'll have to do a clean flash and wipe as the OTA is not out yet.

    any chance of keeping an eye on how the Glance screen features impact batt life? Hard to judge i know, but even anecdotal info about if it does/does not impact performance would be nice over the coming days. Ive read the screen differences play a significant part. I heard new tones are there, any info on that?
