    the whole topic is a huge off topic
    main title is: Expecting Samsung Ativ S firmware update?
    but 90% of posts (this too) is about something else
    Off topic it may be but this thread was created when we were waiting for the WP8.1 firmware which is now rolling out.

    That's already noted. Bluetooth connectivity is among first things i test on every device. Now it works perfectly. So far I managed to pair and transfer files to and from my ATIV S with:
    • Samsung Omnia i900 (Windows Mobile 6.5.3)
    • LG GM360 (LG Proprietary OS)
    • Sony Ericsson k800i (Java OS)
    • Mototola RAZR V3 (Java OS)
    • Sony Ericsson ARC S (Android Jellybean 4.3)
    • iPhone 4S (iOS 8.1)
    • iPhone 5S (iOS 8.1)
    • LG G2 Mini (Android KitKat 4.4.2)
    • Nokia C3 (Series 40 OS)
    • Nokia Asha 302 (Series 40 OS)

    I have to note that even on WP8 GDR3, my ATIV S did manage to do the same like now with WP8.1.1
    Anyway, the review is almost complete, it will contain my experience with it. I am not gonna write what option where it is, cuz you have so many other sites out there that already covered that. so you better prepare yourself a beer or big cup of coffee before you start reading, it's going to be a long read, hehe. I should conclude it till Sunday/Monday and post it. :)
    You can also add the Galaxy Nexus running Android 4.3 and the HTC Desire running Android 2.3 (needs an SD Card to save files though) to that list, I just tested it by sending a picture.

    Ok, it offers everything I want in a Windows Phone. Removable Battery, SD Card slot and, until the Lumia 1520, the largest display on a Windows Phone.
    You already posted this in that thread.

    I've jumped ship waiting for a firmware update to roll out on my T899M, we'll sort of, went with the Lumia 830. Too early to compare the two but can honestly say the Ativ S still holds its own from my perspective, if and when it gets updated I'll still be able to use as a backup via swapping sim with my 1020, was and still is a great daily driver especially as far as my work is concerned.

    So, according to some users here, WE who got 8.1.1 should leave the thread or close the thread only cuz this thread went "off topic"? Seriously guys? The majority ATIV S users are the users that still haven't got the new 8.1.1 that we the minority are enjoying it now. Most of our most helpful users got the 8.1.1, so if they leave the thread, who is going to explain or help to not that much techy users who come here for help and still are on WP8 GDR3 (some of them are even still on GDR2 and 1). Whoever think that he/she doesn't wanna hang out on this thread anymore is free to go, unsubscribe or whatever from this thread. We thank you for all your contribution and help you provide here.
    As for me, I am staying here and will continue helping others as much as i can and know.
    Cheers :)

    P.S. For the newcomers here: Please, i am sure that whatever question you have regarding update of your ATIV S, I am 99% sure that your question is already answered in the pages of this thread. Do some little reading (browsing) before ask a question. Everyone's time is precious here, so respect that. Thank you :)

    Seems to me I don't have reboots when using bluetooth and wifi at the same time with 8.1.1 and new firmware, I got them on GDR3. Really pleased with this phone now.

    I have to ask, tho it sounds stupid, does unchecking PfD do anything to update possibly sooner? (might change the subscription channel or whatever)

    I've seen several people on the thread stating they checked or unchecked PfD on the Preview for developers app, but no real conclusion as to that might or not be effective.

    ​Still no update on PfD DBT =/

    No it doesn't. I didn't have mine unchecked and still got the update.

    No Ativ S update of any sort for Rogers Canada....

    I would like to read the entire thread as Boris suggested but all i see is Boris commenting.... not about Ativ S.... so I will assume that there is an update somewhere in the world and that we will get it sometime....

    You don't need to read the whole thread, there is a search option right up there to search not the forum but the thread too.
    anyway, Is your ATIV S a T899M variant? if it is, than this forum is mainly for international version of ATIV S i8750. :)
    And Boris is not just commenting here, Boris is sharing info with others. I am not a Samsung nor Microsoft employee to know this things 100% true, but for what i read from numerous sites, i share what i am finding. That doesn't necessarily means it is 100% true information. Also beside commenting i do help less techy people here understand their phones better. :)

    I'm a bit confused, I tried reading here but didn't get any good results. Help would be appreciated.

    Device #1 - ATIV S, unlocked with original CSC - ILO. Upgraded to 8.1 with developer preview program.
    Device #2 - ATIV S, unlocked with original CSC - ILO. Running 8.0 GDR3, not enrolled to the DP program.

    What I tried to do -

    Device #1 - Check for updates w/o DP - got nothing. Tried updating to 8.1.1 but got the 0x80188308 error. Went into the diagnose app, changed the CSC to NEE (from ILO). Asked me if I want to restart automatically. I clicked yes, but nothing happened. Restarted the phone, checked and CSC was indeed NEE. Tried updating (without DP app checked in), but it told me that there were not updates. tried hard reset, same.

    Device #2 - Still didnt do anything, waiting for advice :)

    Did I miss anything ?

    Thanks a lot!

    csc ILO is not yet confimed with the WP8.1 update.
    If you had read this thread on and offtopic than you already could find it.
    See post #1266 and #1396, just 3 pages back.

    But hey it is stupid with them update.
    Because I read worldwide that some people with ATO and DBT still do not get the WP8.1 update.
    And those csc are already confirmed with the new update.

    I think sammie stopped for us and went to the NEO with them update
