    Windows phone 8.1 is official available via developer preview program which is free and safe (you can downgrade your device back to windows phone 8.0 if you have a lumia device ). If you want the update with firmware update then you have to wait for the cyan update which will bring the final release of windows phone 8.1. My estimate is that it might be available by July-August. Stay tuned on WPC blog as they will post an article as soon as windows phone 8.1+ cyan update is available in India :)

    You are confused here. 24th is the date from which the support cycle begins. Will have to wait when will be the final version is seeded. I will wait for the cyan firmware update.

    Agreed. Besides, the update available also depends on the carriers and regions or so they say. Please do correct me if I made a mistake.

    I am sure you can get it updated at your device care center for free if it is further delayed, however all your data will be reset once it is updated from care center(ex: nokia care), they would receive it 15 days prior to official release.

    I hope the information shared is useful to you.

    I'm not so sure that's true anymore Himanshu - there are a few of us reporting that we cannot get the DP to trigger an install on recently purchased phones. Well, at least HTC phones anyway.

    I upgraded my HTC 8XT right away, no problems, went through the same steps on my wifes 3 week old HTC 8XT...and it will not find the DP upgrade. (Yes, I went through all the steps, multiple times...it won't update.)

    I think its locked out now...either by carrier or by Microsoft...possibly only for certain phones as there was a report (or 2?) for an 8XT melting down... which has me wondering if it needs a firmware patch to be safe for all...

    I think there were issues with some HTCs and the DP so that could be why it's been blocked for those phones.

    This is frustrating! If they(MS) say update is 24th, then it should be 24th. Where did this lifecycle date and all that come from?

    Looks like the Nokia release schedule is still detailing Lumia Black updates? WTF? Not even recognising Cyan yet?

    Is it so hard to understand that LIFECYCLE is a different thing to RELEASE. MS themselves never said that release was on the 24th of june - sry folks.
