    Is the test phone on Verizon?

    Has anyone else questioned this fact? If the ICON is such a problem to update to 8.1/Cyan that Verizon retired the phone then why haven't they released 8.1/Cyan for the 822 & 928. That fact alone would have pointed out that these two phones had no problems updating and the problem must be with the ICON only.

    They haven't updated any of the WP's so I have to think that Verizon/Network/CDMA system is a problem for Nokia Phones throughout. They could release the updates for the other than ICON phones but hey haven't.

    They are continuing to sell the 928 which makes no sense to me at all.

    What other thoughts do some of our members have on this set of facts?
    None of the other US GSM networks have updated their phones either only AT&T.

    I really don't think you are going to get to many people coming out and showing proof right about now, has any one heard from tcman88 in a while?

    I'd assume that the poster is talking about a Lumia 735. There are many tech journalists that have a Lumia 735 on Verizon running Cyan, Daniel Rubino included.

    The point is valid. There's currently a device running Cyan on Verizon. And Verizon felt comfortable enough to allow Nokia to release to journalists.

    This is not a matter of testing. It's Verizon dragging their feet for other reasons. And ultimately, it negatively impacts wp8 market share and us the consumer.

    I had someone send me screenshots of a 929 with a Cyan build, but given they haven't posted them, I can't share. That said, if anyone has any insight into how Nokia/Microsoft generate the URL's for their downloads, I think we could possibly reverse engineer the address.

    I currently have it ~50% worked out in an excel

    At least we have HTC saying that we can "expect the 8x to get 8.1 at the end of October."
    That's all well and good. But the 8x nor the M8 will never get Cyan or Denim..ever. Only Lumia devices will.

    Sure there were. There was a black version and a white version. #sarcasm
    Yes. They would have different SKUs so technically speaking there are two versions.

    It's not just the 735's that have test devices floating around.

    arbyjr posted this on another question. What do you think of this updated video from the Microsoft store? It shows the Icon ships with 8.1 and shows Cortana on the desktop.

    It doesn't say "ships with 8.1", nor does it show Cortana.

    I do have some news tho regarding Verizon updates for the ICON.
    I got off the phone with Verizon reps last night and they said that the Update was cleared from testing on 10/14/14 and usually takes up to 2-3 weeks after it is released from testing to hit OTA. So I think our new, tentative update timeframe is end of October to middle of November. but honestly im taking that with a grain of salt right now.

    so in conclusion good news indeed but still nothing from Verizon official regarding this update so don't get your hopes up.

    Again he said look at the video... The video DOES show cortana, and she does say "installed with windows 8.1"

    The video blurb, second tiny image from the top on the left, does show Cortana and does mention 8.1. IIRC, however, the (former) Nokia page for the 928 listed it as having FM Radio capability for quite a while before they corrected it, so those pages certainly aren't totally Gospel.

    The 735 will ship with 8.1 and Cyan or Denim. Right now, Verizon and Microsoft, through their silence are doing more to damage Windows Phone in the US than any of their competitors.
