    Isn't denim supposed to be available across the whole range now? I have a925 on the 3 network in the UK. Still no denim and still no Cortana! Am I doing something wrong? I keep searching for updates but there are none available! It's so frustrating. Any advice would be appreciated. Cheers. Joe

    Coverage is currently at about 30% or so. The update is being rolled out in phases, so some people need to be more patient than others, I'm afraid.

    You can check availibility at

    Ms can keep denim if they want, all I need is the fix for the freezing issues on the 925

    Thank you for answering my post. So I assume that I am not supposed to have Cortana at the minute, not even on cyan?

    What is it with these rollouts, how to Apple manage to send updates out to all phones overnight? It is really frustrating and putting me off of WP's. I have been supporting them for a while but really loosing patience.

    p.s cheers for the link. Stuck on Cyan but with no indication how long that will be for.

    Apple only have two current handsets and a few older ones, so less than ten in total that will get updates. Apple also separates carrier customisations from the firmware so that they're able to only test their updates on those handsets that the new OS will live on even then, they still get their day one problems they have to fix).

    With Windows Phone, there's a different hardware for each variation of handset/carrier/region. This means that there's no separate configuration files that can adversely affect your phone (or do something illegal for your region). For Lumia phones, there's over 2,000 versions of the firmware to test and deploy. It takes time to do that.

    Hopefully, you won't have to wait too much longer for yours to come through.

    Cheers for the info mate. It is just confusing for a non techie user I guess. It frustrates me that Cortana has been available in the UK since some time last year yet I still don't have it, but people who go buy a phone today can have it instantly. Surely this needs to be addressed?

    Well, there's some confusion around Cortana in the UK.

    People who entered the Preview for Developers scheme had access to Cortana early. The new "Denim" update allows normal people to catch up with that update and hence gain Cortana at this point.

    Aha! That clears that up nicely. Soooo Windows phones that are being sold now are pre loaded with Denim I take it?

    Whilst I have your attention, and if you dont mind, id like to ask you one more quick question.....

    Will there be a new high end windows phone this year? I have had the 925 for nearly two years now and its almost time for an upgrade. The best that three can offer me though is the 735, and it doesn't seem as good as the 925.

    Some new handset models are being sold with Denim, yes.

    And Micrsoft have confirmed a new "flagship" phone for later in the year that's probably going to be built for Windows 10. We don't have any idea of specs yet. Octa-core and a smoking hot processor seems likely though given that they've mentioned this hardware in a game developer conference invite recently.

    Does anyone have "For limited connectivity" option (mobile+SIM settings) on Lumia 925 after Denim update?

    Did anyone noticed that numbers on battery tile are not very sharp?

    Lumia 5 is only for the 830, 930/icon and 1520 because you need a snapdragon 800 to use the Lumia camera 5 Features.

    Do you have Preview for Developers? If you do, turn it off.

    I am from Finland with L925. In the Microsoft update website, it shows Denim for 925 in Finland and I have been checking many time but still my 925 shows no update at all. Is there anything wrong?

    In Finland, only few Lumias are still without Denim: 630, 635, 820, 920, 925 (735 and 830 are not available yet)

    The waiting continues, maybe I get Denim this week? *fingers crossed*

    But is your phone the Finland country variant? Your location doesn't matter, your phone's CV does.
