    Hopefully Samsung will release the firmware update until Christmas... But I don't think we'll get anything else (no WP8.1 GDR1+2) or only if they decide to bundle it in the same update, which is highly unlikely.

    GDR1 is likely to be bundled with the WP8.1 update and firmware.

    To the naysayers: the ATIV Camera app is proof that WP8.1 is coming to Samsung ATIV users, so hold onto your pants and enjoy the wait game. They say its not the destination, but the journey that counts.

    ATIV Camera
    Is this app available to download with 8.1 gdr1?. I was able to download with 8.1 but not with 8.1 gdr1

    Boris, if i remember well you were the one that pointed some ''directions'' to me because i connected along with the 8.1 OS and FW update, the APN settings...and now you ask me if i have a problem with the irrelevant and useless argues???

    Neo158, do you need a moderator around so to force you to act properly?? You can't do this by yourself??

    I think i was quite polite in my previous post and i kindly asked to stop the argues...not from you 2...but generally

    Thanks

    In the german Microsoft-supportforum someone from the Microsoft-team answered that all Ativ S will get 8.1, even the ones with still gdr2 installed. She couldn't give the date of release though. Still we will get official 8.1.

    Ok Alex, obviously we step here on a wrong foot, so let just clear some things here first.
    Your first post here was a question for those who already have the 8.1 what are their APN settings and did they change their CSC's, which first of all was a question in wrong thread, cuz there were already a thread for that for which when i asked you is your phone ATIV S and you confirmed, I post you the link in my answer to the thread where you can get a better answer, which i found it for you, using the search thing on this forum and it took me around 20 seconds. Was it like that Alex? I also said cuz it was your first or second post here, that you use that Search options to get your answers fast, right? And i said that in a polite way and mention you not to take it personal cuz i was not trying to be rude, right? Right! My point there was not to teach you a lesson how to use the forum, but to point you a solution how to get your answers faster and not to ask the question and just wait someone to respond. And your question back then was a question that was already discussed and answered multiply times in various threads.
    As i said before the name of this thread itself is in speculations category, so if you have problem with that, just unsubscribe from this thread and you are good to go. We are here sharing thought and news what we learn, read or watch somewhere, we are just hanging out and having fun. This is not a specific thread where you have to be exact and accurate about some releasing dates, and blah blah blah. And your post about keeping "clean" this thread and not posting nonsense is exactly what a self-centered forum mod will say, but it's ok, I am sure that was not your first intention when you post that, so I am ok with that.
    I am sorry, if i ever sound to you like a bossy or an arrogant guy. I tend to know about tech and smartphones more than some people here, so i am always glad that i can help people that need help from people who knows more about tech. And i think i am doing that all the time here.
    Relax Alex, just go with the flow. :) It's all good, have a beer on me :)
    Cheers.

    Are you a mod? No, then stop telling us what to do.
    Well, I'm a Mod...

    You've probably noticed that the thread has been pruned somewhat. While I realise that the topic has raised emotions, there's no need at all for people to start attacking one another - it won't solve a thing and won't make you feel any better or make you look better.

    Please keep this on topic and be respectful of other people's views. If you feel yourself getting angry, then by all means turn into the Incredible Hulk and squeeze a stress ball.

    Damn, and i was wondering what the hell happen, where the last posts went? Including mine too. But here is what was the whole thing. :) Altho I am not sure why my last post and Oversoul7's last post were deleted, there were not offending posts, but i guess was a part of the argument and so got deleted. It's ok, no problem :)

    Oversoul's post referred to removed posts, so was no longer relevant to the thread; a necessary casualty, I'm afraid. In your case, I'd like to point out that the profanity filter is there for a reason - substituting letters to bypass it doesn't also bypass the "no profanity" forum rule.

    Whether Samsung releases firmware updates for ATIV S owners is now a dead subject. Which is a pity because its a really decent device. Oh well.. come upgrade time..i'm getting a Lumia. At least that way, I'm sure to get updates to the device and won't feel abandoned by the manufacturer. All the best Sammy! Twas nice while it lasted.

    Oh well, my ATIV S is still on WP8 GDR3, didn't install the 8.1 DP version and if we get the 8.1 for our ATIV S's, then would be fine, if not then i am cool with that, my phone still works flawlessly with the OS version that it has it right now. I don't feel left over regarding the Nokia users and i will not feel like that in the future too.
    But, as for you, it doesn't matter if you switch to Nokia, the one thing that matters is that you will still be in the WP Family :)))) I respect that :)

    Have you tried the known method with switching the CSC's? Can you see what CSC's you have on your phone? We might be able to help you somehow to get the GDR3 if you want it :)

    EDIT:

    Here's something I found:
    "I used the email the CEO link on the support page and just got a phone call back from a Samsung rep. Apparently ETA is mid September to mid October. "

    And this:
    "Well, no update will be released at all from Samsung for Ativ S. This is a fact. They have problems with the hardware of the ATIV S devices and the new 8.1 operating system that they cannot solve."

    I can't post links... But this is from geekzone.co.nz forum.

    Guys a windows phone 8.1 update will happen sooner or later, as there wouldn't be any reason as to why Samsung posted their new camera app on the store. At this moment it's just a patience game, but I, for one, am thinking of switching phones as I've had it for some time now.

    I was thinking about a Lumia, but they have such a small battery (1520 is way to big for me) so I'm considering going back to an android flag ship of some sort... Apart for the lack of the apps I need for work, the windows experience has been great... and I'll probably get back once Windows phone 9 or Windows 9 phones are available.

    It's called "Ativ Camera". So it's not clear. Maybe for all Ativ models, or just for new like Ativ SE.

    Yeah..pretty much.. Samsung continues to drag their feet when it comes to support for ATIV S. So I'm not gonna fuss about it.. Whenever it comes, it comes..if at all. By then, ill probably be already over in Lumia land..
