    Im thinking it is the black update....but it isnt actually available yet for us. Perhaps it IS available but they havent quite pushed it yet. Dont know, just know I got the text too and it means nothing at this point.
    I didn't get the text, but as of about four hours ago Black is available. I had checked earlier this morning (about 0900 C) and it wasn't available, so they must have released it around mid morning sometime.

    I got my update at around 1:30PM EST today. I never got a notification (my 920 doesn't have a SIM card in it currently), but I just happened to check for updates then.

    So, I'm trying to figure out what you two guys would do with your devices if you met in person.

    Would someone with Black installed check whether the Field Test menu is still available, please? Just dial ##3282# or ##3282 and let me know if it comes up. I have to be able to force 2G to be able to talk on my 920 at home.

    Thanks,

    yea, probably by the time you read this you will be updated too lol. I figured it was because of space. I keep around 4.5 gigs free on my phone. Took about 45 min. to do

    So I was already on GDR3 with the Developer's Program update thing. When I got home from work, my wife said her 920 was acting wonky after the update (which I hadn't even seen the alert for). I updated my phone and my phone was working fine.

    My wife's phone updated and appeared to be working fine as it sat at the home screen. Hours after the update, it was still not responding correctly. Trying to launch any app would go to a Loading screen for 15 seconds or so, then fail back to the start screen. When you tried to restart the phone, the "swipe down to power off" screen would hang on the screen and it wouldn't shut off without the Volume Down + Unlock button. I eventually gave up and restored the phone via the Nokia Care Suite and ended up restoring the phone to the image I had on the PC, with I think was Windows Phone 8 RTM, which meant that I spend the rest of the night updating the phone through Portico and GDR2.

    This morning, I reinstalled GDR3 again, and it appeared to be acting the exact same way. I was at my wit's end, and ended up putting my wife's SIM card in an 820 with a broken screen I have lying around. I brought her phone into work with me. I forced a phone restart again, and it came up and said that the update had failed. I let it sit untouched on my drive into work, and when I got here, I put my SIM in the phone. It powered up properly, and all of the applications are working properly and the phone appears to healthy and fine. It has GDR3, but it's not running the same OS version as my phone. I'm not sure if it's because I'm on the developer's update track, or if an update got pulled from it. Her's says that there are no more updates, so I will keep an eye on it to see what's going on.

    My phone : 8.0.10521.155
    Her phone: 8.0.10517.150

    edit: A quick search appears that our phones are both updated completely, difference is my phone is on a slightly different update track due to the developer's preview.

    I did the Black update on my 920 last night, but I don't really see a difference. So, what exactly is different now? The only thing I notice is the phone is a little faster, but other than that, I don't really notice any special changes. Does anybody have a list of what changed?

    Glance now shows notifications! This addresses a huge shortcoming of the platform. I'm very happy about this. The other great thing is the phantom chirping in the middle of the night while sitting on the wireless charger appears to have stopped. Other than that, I've not noticed anything significant. You can Google the full list of updates, but those are the big two for me.

    1. you can customize tones for individual contacts
    2. you can lock the screen rotation
    3, you can close an app (not sure what its called ) by holding the <- key ope app are on a scroll with an X in the upper right corner to exit i know there is a better name way to describe it, but it escapes me right now...

    You could have custom ringtones for contacts before, but now you can have custom tones for text messages as well, from what I see. And for me it finally fixed my live tiles that have not worked for the last 2 updates. The glance feature is also improved, and it will let you use Nokia Beamer and Storyteller, I believe, though they pulled Storyteller because of some issues, I read.

    jmshub's post is a word-for-word account of what I've been enduring for the past 24 hours. I am going to try and retrace your footsteps to see if I can bring my phone back to the point of functionality.
