    I'll be pushing my 720 as far as it can go. Even if in the future, i may need to buy a phone with more advanced hardware to keep up with the industry, I can't bear to let my 720 go. Here's hoping that 512mb devices get a lot of feature upgrades and go on to the next few major revisions (till 9 at least) :D a man can dream :P

    P.S. I didn't find it too hard to let go from my year old 610 :P

    I think this will be only for the 1GB ram devices, not sure of the 520 can be upgradeable to 8.1

    Please don't mislead information. It has been told several time that "All the devices running Windows Phone 8 will be able to get Windows Phone 8.1".
    Now why are you saying that only 1GB RAM devices would get that.. OS has really nothing to do with apps..

    When it was originally stated that all 'current' WP8 phones would get 8.1 the 625 didn't exist, I believe. Technically that could mean that the 625 may not get the upgrade, but I very much doubt it. Certainly having a low memory, basic device is no bar in itself as the 520, 620 & 720 will all be upgraded.

    The answer to the question in the title is, "Yes, if you have a WP8 device." But the correct question to be asking is, "When will my phone get updated?" For many of us, that answer remains elusive.

    Well, yeah, BUILD will probably have something on 8.1, hopefully some developer preview bits if not a general release, but I was referring to Black.

    All Windows Phone 8 phones are eligible for update to WP8.1 barring any hardware limitations, which means you may not get the full update but the majority of it.

    The main question is whether or not your carrier will release it for your specific device if it's a contract device. For example, my phone is unlocked but still tied to EE update cycle. I am currently without the Black update because of this. It's possible EE may not even bother releasing WP8.1 for my two year old phone. This is the 'real' issue with carrier approved updates. They have the option to 'not bother'.

    Hopefully there will be something from MS to bypass carrier blocks. I'm not holding my breath but it would be nice.

    Ya MS already stated that all Windows Phone 8 devices will be upgraded to 8.1 but we may have to consider few things like not all features gonna work on all devices alike. As for how and exaclty when we will get the 8.1 version that should only be cleared at BUILD 2014.

    Sadly the Lumia 810 won't be getting the newest firmware (black). Which then brings the question of will it be compatible with any new O/S updates down the road.

    ^ -810

    As for those who say we disgruntled 810 users are delusional and that 'all' WP users will get all updates, accdg. to another user here in WPCentral, this has been confirmed by a T-Mobile rep with a document stating why, but would not divulge that info (so much BS). So I suppose the Black update really is not available for Lumia 810.

    Will consider upgrading to a factory unlocked 1020 (or a newer version) sometime later this year or when this phone dies (should that really happen, lol) whichever comes first.

    Lastly, before we go around saying I'm/we're jumping to conclusions and picking a fight, we're just making it clear that the release of the update all depends on the carrier should the phone be a carrier variant. The only way around would be via dev unlock/preview. We're concluding this non-updatability from sources/availability listings just as everyone else is concluding otherwise from other sources. That's the info that we have... Believe me, I/we would so love to be proven wrong. ;)
    I'm happy for users of other models though, great news for them.

    Hehehe, luckily I bought my 925 as an import (Carrier CV gb). I don't think I would ever get an update if my phone was locked into 2degrees

    Why my HTC 8X don't receive the "Black" update? I bought a Windows phone and I want Windows Phone updates.
    Look at the list of lumia applications:
    When I bought the phone I paid much Money and now even the 520 has some of these updates and my phone doesn't.
    Someone give me an explanation!

    You can't get the black update because it's Lumia exclusive, it's a Nokia firmware update that won't be able to run on your HTC 8X, you only receive OS updates (from Microsoft such as GDR2 and GDR3), while Lumias get both firmware updates (from Nokia such as Amber and Black) and OS updates (from Microsoft).

    Not even the Ringtone Maker?
    Ugly ****
    But Nokia has been bought by Microsoft and all the Nokia Corporation apps are MS apps that should come to all WP devices.
    Am I wrong?
