    Soon. There's no schedule of release. So expect any time from now until WP8.1 comes out in April. Carrier depending of course.

    VZ and the 928 have always had issues, separate and together. Like said above, 8.1 is suppose to be announced and potentially releases around April and/or Spring. That being said, expect it before that. I believe MS said they would all be rolled out within Q1 2014 so given in a few more weeks. Also, you can do the Developers Preview. Give you practically everything that update will get anyways.

    I have trouble finding this article credible, given that they say the rollout begins for the 1020 today. It started 21 days ago.

    For the record, the 928 was one of the first phones to get GDR2/Amber in the US, so we'll see how they handle GDR3/Black.

    From the Nokia software update page it says "waiting for approval" for the Lumia Black update for Verizon 928. Sigh....

    Waiting for approval = undergoing final testing with Nokia, country or operator to achieve approval.
    Coming soon = approved, in final pre-release checks.

    If I've learned anything, it is that Verizon is extremely unpredictable when it comes to updates. GDR1 was slow on the 822. GDR2 was fast on the 928 and 822. But I don't think the Trophy ever got the 7.8 update. And now we're not up front with GDR3 like we were with GDR2. I think it just goes to show how silly it is to try to predict these things.

    You are kidding right? Lumia Black JUST started to be released. If we get it in the next two weeks, I'd still think that is pretty quick.

    I agree that it is a roll of the dice with Verizon on these things. We all need to just hope for the best and deal with reality.

    Don't forget, mash "Check for updates now" repeatedly for the next 2 weeks

    I've mentioned this before but it is my opinion that they uncharacteristically hustled in GDR2 to get the group MMS issue settled

    Ok I guess my point is, if Android released on incremental update to the Nexus 5 and Verizon updated the HTC one within 5 weeks it would be pretty quick. So Black was out on a couple of At&t devices 21 days ago, if Verizon gets it out on he 928 within 2 weeks from today, I'd be surprised.

    You can download the app folder app from the store. You don't need GDR3 or black to download it or use it. And it is available everywhere, not just China.

    Yeah, my Trophy never got the 7.8 update. I had to put a 7.8 ROM on it.

    Hope the 928 update comes out soon. Apparently, though, it's only available on the 1020 right now: Availability in North America - Nokia
