    Read his post again, he says he does not care so why is he posting in this section of the forums then?
    Read his above posts. He was waiting for the GDR2 update for the Ativ S, and has then said that he doesn't care about it anymore because he's got a 1020 and has given his Ativ S to his wife. He is merely updating his situation, nothing more.
    Once again, read before posting.

    No Problem, I just get fed up with all the Samsung hate around here and sometimes it really gets to me. I just didn't read the thread before posting which is a common mistake on forums :)

    That's quite a few Windows Phones, it's good to see someone who has stuck with Windows Phone since launch.

    Update on Bell is now live. You may have to check for it manually before you can download it.

    LOLOLOL....cry... I got the "Low Space" warning during "Preparing To Install" unpak-ing phase. Still seems to be ticking along though...story of a WP users life, eh?

    uh-oh. Been stuck at "Preparing to install 100%" for a bit now. Hope I'm not hung up. Phone isn't locked-up though so that's still good.

    FWIW I think I was at 1.3 gb and a bit of free space before starting all this. Y'all might want to bump that up a bit before starting...just to be safe.

    Ok...that took a while but I'm over the hump now. It says it's going to install "Microsoft Update 8.0.10322.71, Microsoft Update 8.0.10327.77, and SAMSUNG Update for Windows Phone." I'm guessing the last one is firmware...

    Yup. OS is now 8.0.10327.77, and your firmware should be updated to 2212.13.6.1 when all is said and done.

    Any way to update without OTA?

    There was mention of a "DataSense" feature, but I haven't seen any evidence of it anywhere. Can anybody else with the update verify this? I checked in settings, and in my list of apps, but if it exists, it appears to be eluding me.

    OTA is the only way to receive updates.

    Isn't datasense network operator dependent?

    It is, and Bell mentioned that it would be available in this release:

    I can't believe how long it's taking to roll GDR2 out to unbranded devices, Samsung and Microsoft are being lethargically slow about it. :-/

    One thing I just realized about my Ativ S (T899M version) is that it's only semi-unbranded...There are no brandings on the case and there is no carrier splash screen but I still have the Bell firmware and had to wait for them to release it. This might be why so many people think it's taking long for the update to hit unbranded phones.

    The point is that a factory unbranded and unlocked device doesn't require carrier testing, so the update should be available for those devices regardless of carrier ;-)

    At first glance, it looks like this update doesn't have a whole lot to offer beyond "under-the-hood" type stuff. On my Telus ATIV S I see no evidence of FM Radio support, Data Sense support, selectable Default Lens support... kind of disappointing I must say. Hopefully IE will show a wee boost in performance, and battery life as well... I didn't see any added features or controls for managing "Other" data. Perhaps that will be be ongoing behind the scenes though.
    And it may just be my imagination but the screen is looking a tic spiffier too.

    I totally agree...Why Samsung is shipping unlocked / unbranded T899Ms with Bell firmware is beyond me. The only thing I can say for sure is that the update is downloading to my phone currently.

    The carrier on the about screen is listed as Bell but also in the Diagnosis menu you can see the firmware package itself is from Bell and the CSC was set to Bell Mobility. Even when you turn the phone on it's loaded with Bell bloatware and APN settings. The what makes you think it's unbranded is the fact that when you power it on the Bell splash screen has been replaced with a pure black image. That's just a bootloader item and can be modified independently of OS firmware image.
