    Yes lumia 925 received windows phone 8.1 update (depends on carrier ). It's an excellent phone with slim metal/polycarbonate body.

    recommend, it is now EOL (meaning 8.1+cyan will probably be the last official update it will receive) but we still have unofficial updates

    being EOL is the only con to this phone honestly, its a fantastic phone that runs smoothly and has the most beautiful screen I've ever seen (even though its only a 768p screen)

    I have a T-Mo branded 925 and agree it is a great phone. Windows Phone Central declared the 925 as "The Best All-Around Windows Phone" last year. The best Windows Phone you can buy | Windows Phone Central

    ​Look around the web to get one quick. They are no longer on the shelves at T-Mo or on their website. Not at Microsoft Store either.

    I got this information from a T-Mobile store employee.

    Hoax? Isn't it obvious even without T-Mobile confirming it directly? It's display was replaced by the 630, it's not sold in T-Mobile stores, you can't buy it from them online, the phone recently went on a liquidation sale dropping the price as low as $200

    ignoring T-Mobiles confirmation, I don't see anything that points to it not being EOL.

    So how would we be able to update?

    well for 8.1+ cyan T-mobile had already stated 925 will get it, so you can wait for that to come normally

    for anything else, you'll probably have to use the dev preview program (unless T-mobile decided not to give 925 the 810 treatment and we still get to receive updates... that would be nice)

    T-mobile, just like any other carrier, will make new MS or Nokia updates available.

    810 was a exclusive smart. I think it was a different case.

    exclusive smart? explain.

    also, a carrier can decide not to update any phone they please, its part of why the US has the worst cellular market.

    okay i got the 925 it took a while to getting it close to the way I wanted it.
    can the dial phone pad turn down the key clicking, I had to turn the volume way up to hear the phone,now the key pad is loud.
    any screen shots of your phone to get some ideas as to what I might want., that's safer then changing and not liking it.
    and which app do I use to get navigation don't like the app choices for a check book register. any body use that if so which one.
    I know there's going to be more but cant think of them just yet.
    thanks

    1) dont think theres a way to lower the keyboard clicking volume, though I've never tried it.

    2) sure heres my start screen right now: (note that it is with 8.1, so theres a lot of that you wont be able to do with yours yet)
    wp_ss_20140802_0001.jpg

    3) by navigation Im assuming you mean gps navigation? if so, your phone comes with a really nice one called Here Drive, give it a try sometime its really nice

    4) I don't use any checkbook stuff for my phone so I can't help there.

    feel free to ask more questions, I'll answer as best as I can! I'm sure you'll fall in love with the 925 and its beautiful screen :P

    I couldn't find a way to lower the key pad but you can turn it off by going to Settings>Ringtones+Sounds>uncheck Key Pad

    To be fair... You will be missing out on some really cool stuff by not being able to test 8.1. Like Cortana. She kicks some serious assistant.

    I will echo the above comment: Here Drive is all you need for nav. Download your area's map for maximum effect. You will love the HUD in Drive. (I do anyway.)

    Pin whatever you think you'll use to the Start Screen. That is what I love about Windows Phone. The things you use are close to the surface and readily accessible. That includes individual websites. Those can be pinned. Maybe try WizTiles as a custom tile maker...

    Don't forget the power of Glance. LOVE my Glance and having notifications show by Icon and # of notification right there on my screen without unlocking the device.

    Get signed in to all your accounts to leverage the Hub characteristics to maximum effect.

    I never really hear anything about BB cameras... Try out the 925's camera a lot. It is, IMHO, a pretty decent shooter. I use my camera more on 925 than any other phone I've owned.
