    It'll drive you even more crazy when you apply it, the GDR 2 for Samsung kills its bluetooth, for real.

    Even responded to a few threads on Ativ S section.

    I am not sure if Sammy fixed GDR 2 because they are busy baking new devices for android lineup that they don't care about wp.

    No problems with GDR2 and now no problems with GDR3 related to BT, works fine and now better because every mp3 I send to my phone is got it by the music + video app...with GDR1 that was not possible

    I had to pray for people who installed GDR 3, they had problems that made them climb the wall.
    Reboot loops, crashes and stuff you never want to see even in your most terrible dreams!
    I'd wait for official GDR 3, specially if my phone is out of warranty, God forbid, if I hit the wall, I'd be hanging on a thread with a phone stuck on gears.

    I installed GDR3 Wednesday and for me there are NO problem, all working as out of box. The only thing i missing are a notice of new message or missed call (twinkling led) as in my old HTC OneX.

    After update, I don't see anything different about the phone. I don't see it running faster. I don't see battery lasting longer. The only thing I see is Data Sense (which a quick SMS to my carrier will provide more accurate info anyway) so I don't think GDR2 is a bit deal on ATIV S.
