    I happened to have left wifi on after the "Amazing Weather HD" app needed it to download. Just looked at my phone and it's got 5 updates ready to install. When I had Androids, I generally regretted doing an update right away. I've had my black 928 since 5/31 and am hoping that it all goes well. I don't want to come back with any horror stories. I'm not one to root, or in our WP case install the developer version. I'd rather play it safe and wait for it to come to me. Spinning wheels are done, now it says almost done and it's on step 3 of 6. I wish eveyone and myself good luck with this!

    I think Verizon released Black before Nokia was aware they would so I hope it's only a matter of Nokia flipping a switch and turning it on for us. At least I hope.

    I was under the impression that the Black update was supposed to make the camera better, but it's far worse. This is terrible.

    I also noticed that when I went to the Nokia availibilty page that it shows the Lumia 928 is still waiting for black update

    Well the greenish/yellowish tint is still there from the post-processing, and the pictures are a lot softer with much less detail. The pictures look kind of cloudy, almost like there's a fingerprint on my lens. Zooming in and cropping is basically useless now too because there's SO much noise. It's really disappointing when updates make things work. Some 920 users have even downgraded to Portico because of how bad it is, but I don't want to do that because I like the other features that come with Amber/Black, so I guess I'll just learn to deal with it.

    Anyone else get this error message during "preparing to install" phase: "update was downloaded, but couldn't be opened. (8018830f)". I've tried installing it dozens of times.

    I had no problems. I had the GDR3 update prior through the Developer program. Update was done in about 15 minutes. A few hours later, I got a notice to upgrade "Accessories".

    Oh and it seems MUCH faster. ;-)

    Well, we have two 928s in our house. One of them updated without issue. The other one just won't update at all. Always fails in the same spot. I tried turning off the phone, soft resetting it, etc. I've tried about 3 dozen times now. It won't install. Very frustrating.

    Received the Lumia Black Update tonight. I thought this update was supposed to give us the ability to change the sounds for 'text', 'new voicemail', 'new email' & 'reminders' to any ringtone of our liking instead of using just the standard alert/nokia sounds... but to my dismay, I still only have the option to choose from the standard sounds.

    Does anyone else have the same problem or was I misled.

    Thanks :)

    Those updates are part of WP 8.1 (Blue), not the Black update. . .

    The ability to make your personal ringtone to texts and emails came with the update 3 I got the developers unpdate free when it came out in december and have had the personal tones since then. You dont have to wait for 8.1 you just need the update 3

    That is what I thought. I do have the ability to change the ringtone and text sound for each contact but for the text tones my only choices are the standard sounds that come with the nokia phone. I cannot add any new ones. When the specs for gdr3/black said custom ringtones and text tones, I thought I would be able to add my own text tones. I guess I was wrong.

    Thanks for your help Fredd. :)
