    I recently just received an update on my NL928 which I must assume is the GDR2/Amber, but after looking in my about, I see that my firmware is still on 1532.5957 and hasn't updated to 3045.0000, I was thinking this would all be bundled in one update, and was wondering if most people have gotten GDR2 then Amber a couple hours later, or both at once or should I reset and try again. Sorry if this has been answered before, I couldn't find anything directly related to this.
    I've been trying to match my Extras+Info to what other people have been getting after a successful update and it seems like I have everything but the Lumia Amber Update. But I was able to download the ProCam/Tripper/Video upload.

    With all the chatter about the "other" issue, I checked my phone. Lumia 928, with GDR2/Amber updated.

    Under Settings\Phone Storage\then tapping phone, it is reported as 4.70 GB.
    Under Settings\Storage Check\slide right to details, then at the bottom "other" is listed at 2.6 GB.

    Is this causing confusion? Where is everyone getting "other" size details from? Why the difference?

    If your touch sensitivity is on high it gets laggy but moves fine on normal. Get the Hardware Test app from the store and it'll tell you what was all in the update.

    I got the Luminous Links app from the store and gives you direct links to what you need to update. I had the same problem as you and after going to the links and updating certain things showed Lumia Amber in the extras+info.

    Wow, guess what. Decided to do a Hard/Factory reset. The gears kept spinning for 30 min. I realized the phone may have had a low battery, so I plugged it in and turned the phone on and off. It had a low battery, once it got enough charge though it went right back to the spinning gears :/ Help.
    The same happened to me while on Technical support with Verizon wireless and they asked me to do hard reset to resolve the issues with Wifi and Compass after the GDR2 update and now the wheels continue to spin after an hour. The technical support guy called Nokia for support regarding this issue also. Anyways, they have ordered a replacement for me and I should get one tomorrow and hopefully it will work better. I had no problem with the Nokia Lumia 928 before the update. After the update, the compass stopped working, it would use cellular network even though I was connected to wifi, multiple shutdown and restart and soft reset (holding down power button and volume down button) did not help resolve the issue.

    Something got messed with the GDR2 update and hard reset just bricked the phone!

    Did your Extras+Info show a software release of nothing as well? I downloaded the app and literally updated and installed everything in the Systems app but Extras+Info,Feedback to Nokia, Access Point, and Accessories were the only apps under Systems app I could install.
    Was your firmware outdated as well? Even after reseting my phone my OS version stayed with the GDR2(10327.77) update and my firmware has once again yet to update itself.

    I got GDR2 and Amber four days ago now. Enjoying a number of the new features, and overall satisfied. There does seem to be a bug or issue related to the screen/graphics. I'm unsure if it is related to having double tap to wake on, but the issue has always occurred on a wake attempted by doubletap but rarely. The screen will freeze the image, or scrambled it like a negative with weird colors and only part of the screen or similar. When this occurs you can see the screen and at times can get it to change by using volume or other buttons. However, the screen itself becomes non responsive to touch. Sometimes a simple off and on with the button suffices. Other times I've had to hold Power to do a reset. Once even that wouldn't work and had rondo the volume down and power reset. My hope is this is something fixable by perhaps an app update for display+touch but would be curious to know if many others are seeing similar behavior.

    Hey guys, I'm having a weird issue. I'm on the 928 and amber is great! However since updating my phone seems to "drop" wifi. It says that I am connected, but for some reason after 20 min none of my apps are able to access the internet, even though it says I'm connected. I have to go and turn my phones wifi on and off every 20 min and its getting very very annoying.
    I'm having this same issue.

    So it had been reported that the Amber update would make the 928 Bluetooth 4.0 compatible. I have not been able to verify that this is now the case on my 928 after the Amber update. Has anyone?
    I also am curious about this. I'm frustrated that many sites hyped the news of a potential update to bluetooth, and then when the Amber update is released there hasn't been a single word said about it. Also frustrated by a lack of explanation of why FM Radio was dropped from the update for Verizon.

    My 928 updated a few days ago without any real issues that I could see. However, I will say that the glance feature doesn't work well in that the clock stays on nearly all the time despite my settings. Also just today I encountered something weird in that when I hit the power button to wake the screen the phone prompted me to enter a new password stating security settings on my phone recently changed. However, I did not change any security settings at all. I never have the password lock enabled on my phone (I know I probably should). I couldn't do anything until I entered a pin number so I did. Then I went to the lock screen settings and discovered the password option has been enabled and is grayed out preventing me from turning it off. WTF?

    Anybody else experience this? Any ideas how to turn off the password protection mode?

    Here's one that I've been having with my Lumia 822

    Updated and got the cogs. When I go to my screen, it looks like this:
    http://imageshack.us/a/img27/6329/5lzw.jpg

    I restarted and got the Verizon splash screen and the Nokia splash screen, but then it goes to this colored screen.

    I can still turn it off by holding the power key and pulling down from the top half of the screen. There's no video confirmation of this, but when i press the power key again after this, I get the startup screens. I also still get haptic feedback from the buttons at the bottom of the screen

    Calls come through in that the screen lights up, but I can't do anything from there, even if i press the screen where the Accept button should be. I don't even get a warning tone when I end up missing the call.

    I did a hard factory reset (volume down key) but, afterwards, it was stuck on the Nokia screen for hours, and when I pressed the power key, the screen turned off. When I pressed it again, I'm back to the colored screen (and now without all the messages that I missed).

    I can't do anything when I connect it to my computer because, although my computer acknowledges that the phone is connected, it can't get past the passcode lock, even if I try unlocking it by guessing where the proper keys are.

    Please help.

    Sounds to me like you need to take your phone back to Verizon for an exchange.

    you need to "refurbish" your phone with Nokia Care Suite as something went wrong when you updated. Do a forum search, I know there was a long thread describing how to do it with the 920, and it is the same process but with a different product code.

    Why did this get moved in here? I thought it was a very specific question about two "other" locations reporting two different sizes. May have gotten an answer if it remained its own thread...

    I too am frustrated over the lack of information coming out of Verizon/Nokia/Microsoft concerning this. Would be great if one of them would step up and state the reason. If the phone does not have the needed hardware, then just state it. If it was removed by Verizon for some reason, state it. I might be unhappy with the answer, but at least I would know who to vent the anger at.

    Probably because it is GDR2 related and whether or not it is a bug. It is simpler to keep all the questions in one thread. Actually makes it easier to manage.

    I did the amber update and now it seems the battery tiles (any battery app) and weather tiles (any weather app) are not updating.
    I tried removing and repining them as well as a soft reset. The problem persists.
    Anyone else seeing this problem?

    Make sure the tile update feature is turned on in the app.
    I had the CNN app set to update the tile, but swear it got turned off during the GDR2/Amber update.
    I had to turn it back on and it appears to be working fine now.

    I've noticed since after the update, my theme looks dull. I've always used the teal theme with a dark background. Since the update, the teal looks really blue. Anyone else have this issue? I've played around with all the different themes and done plenty of resets...still, nothing has changed. Help? :(

    Look at display+touch.
    There should be settings for the Lumia color profile there.

    If you want to see your former screen quality, just play around with he settings in there.
