    So what will everyone do after receiving the update? I plan for a hard reset and installing everything from scratch, no backup whatsoever. How about the rest?

    Chill guys. The 8.1 update will come to the Ativ S. Samsung have got a lot better with updates for Android and with WP they actually don't need to do much to get it working 100% (mine is really good anyway on the DP). The delay is due to priorities. Unfortunately WP is just not important enough to throw resources at due to the low user base.

    I have enjoyed my 7 months with the Ativ S and I am hopeful about the future for WP as 8.1 is such a big improvement over 8. But my main phone is now a LG G2 and I couldn't be happier now I am "back home".

    I may well keep the Ativ S as it is a good phone

    I think that you have just said what most of us have been thinking. Samsung's priorities are android, tizen and then WP.

    I'm reading about WP9 coming to all WP8 devices in January, and I'm still "stuck" on WP8.
    Not that I'm complaining, my phone works like a Swiss clock, but I'd like to try something new, something wild...

    I dont think so.
    Maybe Microsoft is holding back the update because they want to gain new users for Lumia devices.
    In the past Samsung and HTC devices were the first to get update (GDR2,3)

    My Ativ S updated to update 3 as soon as i got it, so it shows that Samsung have supported the device. I think you are reading to much into the delay though. Microsoft would not do this as it would get out and destroy any hope of spreading WP to other OEMs. I would imagine that the opposite is true, Ms putting pressure on Samsung to release the update.

    But remember we want the update to WORK when it comes, I have seen a few Android updates that have wrecked phones. The 8.1 needs to be 100%.

    i can use only my imagination.. no official statement so...
    btw: HTC was updated 1st. .. now? Waiting like Samsung users, why? Coz Microsoft is holding back the update.. but Its just my imagination. I dont care about the truth I will buy a new phone anyway. The real and only question 4 me is should I stay with WP (switch to high end Lumia not 930, something better in 2015) or move back to Android (Galaxy Note 4)??

    Look I am an absolute Android fanboy. I have had 8 Android phone going back to the Nexus One and now I have just bought myself a LG G2. Android is a great OS with much to recommend it. However switching to Android because of delayed updates on another platform is jumping out of the frying pan and into the fire. Very few Android phones get timely updates. Just look how Samsung, HTC and LG have dropped perfectly capable devices. The same happened to my Galaxy Nexus.

    Windows Phone is a viable option for those who love it. Before my Ativ S I was dismissive of it but now I understand why you guys on here are fans, it is smooth and the way everything fits together is something you don't get on Android.

    No, I don't want DP. I want the full version, not something that will make my camera unusable, for example.

    I have found one post in the site Windows Phone Brasil (19 Sep 2014):
    The title is: "Samsung launches an app compatible only with its Windows Phone 8.1? But which ones?"
    They are talking about the ATIV Clock. Here in Brazil we still do not have the ATIV SE, only the ATIV S. This is the best part (besides the title):
    "It's kind of inconsistent from Samsung launching this app and at the same time is a good sign, because it may mean that they are preparing to officialy release the update to their models running WP8."
    Just wanted to share.

    Damn, and I was hoping for some sort of news this month. Seriously, my Neo would be the perfect phone for me if it gained its MMS capability back (8.1 DP screwed all apns)

    You can manually set the APN.

    I'm VERY well aware of that and attempted to do that myself. The problem was not necessarily the 8.1 DP update, but if you FACTORY RESET the phone after installing the update. It wiped out internet and MMS apn (completely blank). Not a problem. I entered the internet apn, and brought interwebz back online, but all of the MMS apns refused to cooperate. Took it to my ATT store and the guy who helped me (who was a WP fanatic, awesomely enough. Used a 1520 as his in-store phone) could not get the MMS apn to work. NONE that are known to the ATT network worked at all. Checking the forums, this was actually a known problem. I'm only hoping that the official update will allow the apns to work again.

    Yeah, last mms i send was 2009 through my back then beloved Samsung Omnia i900 (remember that phone, right? lol).
    Seriously, are people still using MMS today beside all those messengers today? :) I didn't even check if mms on my ATIV S is working at all, cuz i don't use it and don't need it :)

    I use mms frequently. That and the lack of Samsung firmware is what's stopping me from getting the SE. Verizon phones work with GSM radios but it's hit or miss with getting mms apns to work.
