    I love everyone of these updates. I used to have a Lumia 710 with windows 7.5 from T-mobile. I was really excited when windows 8 was coming out for Lumia 710 until I found out I wouldn't get it. But that didn't stop me from loving my phone. I wouldn't have updated it if I hadn't accidentally put it in the washer in my shorts.

    My question is, will this update come out for all the lumia 925s? or is the same thing going to happen to me?
    Another thing I would like to know is do you know exactly when will the update be out there for everyone to get it? I believe some of the lower models already have it.

    Thanks for all the details you provided in your post!
