    I got the update too, today. I was on the parallel version. I hope this means we're getting GDR3 soon.

    I've noticed the phone no longer crashes during boot, at least it hasn't in the 4 times I've booted since getting the update.
    Ooooooo! I hope that this fixes the boot crash problem. Sometimes it might only take 4 rounds of boot crashing, but other times it goes on and on and I worry that it won't successfully boot up... it eventually does (to my relief).

    I'm also on Bell. I just checked for updates... none available yet.
    I'm still GDR2 OS: 8.0.10327.77 & FW: 2212.13.6.1

    We received GDR2 pretty quickly. It's been a bummer that we haven't had GDR3 yet. I've resisted the temptation for the developer program method thus far.

    Remember Data Sense app does not appear until the phone is factory reset. This is a complete pain in the a.. Until GDR3 when you have the option to restore over Wi-Fi
    Yes I know, but I'm not ready for a factory reset. Even with the restore, you still have so many things to setup again.
    I have noticed a higher battery drain since the update. Where I was getting a 3-4%/hour discharge rate before the update, I now get a 7.5%/hour in the exact same condition. I don't know what's going on...

    Just a thought but this could just be for the t899 version not the i8750

    Another user received the same OS update, and is using the i8750.

    I also received this update on an unbranded, unlocked i8750 in the UK.
    Nothing appeared to have changed, apart from the OS version number, and Bluetooth was still crashing when paired with my car.
    I called Samsung Mobile support in the UK who said they had not released any software or firmware updates at all for this phone, so I should try Microsoft. I can't see anything relevant on windowsphone.com, so I've given up waiting for a UK update and installed the GDR3 developer preview.
    This does seem to have improved my Bluetooth reliability.

    Feeling the love (appropriately on Valentine's Day!) from Bell Canada and/or Samsung...received another update today! Now updated to OS version 8.0.10521.155 I now have the built in "Data Sense" app on my phone and "Screen Rotation" lock, found under 'Settings'. I don't really see anything else new and wonderful. LOL, not sure why I get so excited, anticipating a new update to my phone...it's always rather a bit of a let down, in the end. I always hope for huge changes...new major whistles and bells...and get just a few tweaks and improvements instead. Oh well...still beats using an iPhone or Android!
