    In the US we are at the mercy of the carriers. Even if Microsoft release it today, we will not have the update until few months after.
    That's bad brother :(

    Country Variants should get it first as carriers have to add their own junk before releasing. Glad I changed my ROM from EE UK to GB CV.



    We already have it, so I doubt it. It would revert us back to ordinary software instead of dev previews. I get the feeling we will continue getting dev preview updates and will always have a later version than non-dev phones. Kind of like having Firefox Beta, you're always going to have Firefox Beta from then on.
    sorry if this is a dumb question but how did you go about changing the ROM on your phone to a country varient

    Okay I went ahead and changed the WP8.1 Wikipedia page to be more accurate. See how easy that was?

    Atleast they should give the dev preview user the Cyan update. That's all we are waiting for.

    Click the link that is listed as a source. It links to this site. The headline says "support", and in the middle of the article it says "June 24. Thats when Microsoft has designated as the start of the lifecycle for Windows Phone 8.1. The lifecycle is the period of time for which Microsoft will provide product support."

    I edited the article and replaced the line OP is talking about with a more correct statement including a link to WPC as a source.

    Edited the Wikipedia paragraph and also included the foot note, which, BTW is from here.

    PENDING CARRIER APPROVAL

    For some of us - that may mean never.

    Why? This seems completely contrary to Android, where the ones with Stock Android and no carrier-lock get the updates first. Because first the manufacturers need to adjust their launchers for the devices and then the carriers put their stamp on it too. So, lets say someone with a carrier-locked Samsung Galaxy S4, will get the newest Android update a lot later than someone with a Nexus 5 (or any other unlocked phone running stock Android).

    How does this work on Windows Phone?

    I've only ever had a factory unlocked Windows Phone but it would be similar - updates for the CV handsets don't need carrier approval because they are factory unlocked so have never been locked to a single carrier.

    with carriers or not and I noticed that phones who are with carriers mostly gets the update faster.

    Does this refer to all carriers or only a few from a certain country?

    My 920 was a CV Version and I got the last update (Lumia Black) last :(
    My current 1020 from AT&T gets all the stuff way before the CV... :)

    Guess depends how dedicated your carrier is.
