    Hey, we are not archived anymore?!?

    Good decision WC.

    Why archived if we are 100% active and getting them updates.

    Hey there so I don't think I have time to go thru the thousands of comments to find the answer so maybe someone can direct me. Can I update my phone T899M to 8.1 somehow? My phone is an unlocked Bell phone but I'm a Sasktel customer. (broke the screen on my old phone).

    I talk to sasktel support and they didn't think my phone would see any updates thru them since the phone is a few years old. They hadn't heard anything is coming and basically told me not to wait for it. Its all about the iPhone where I live so they probably never looked into it too much anyway. I've also talked with Samsung Canada and Bell but they knew nothing, both thought I needed kies to update. Sasktel was the most helpful but all had no idea about anything to do with windows phone.(you could tell they were also all typing fanatically to look up info so they could try sound like they knew what they were talking about. Ha)

    So anyway I guess im tired of waiting and want to bypass the carriers and just get it over with so I can have some better features.....finally. Could someone help me out? Thanks.

    First of all: The "Search this thread" feature in this pages is there with a reason, only thing you needed to do is to type T899M and press Enter, and every post mention T899M will be shown in results. But it's ok, since it's your first post we will assume you didn't know. :)
    Second of all: NO, officially you cannot update T899M (which in my opinion is very sad news) since there is no official firmware by Samsung and approved from Canadian carriers (doesn't matter if it's unlocked or not). The only thing you can do to "update" your phone is to go with the PfD (Preview for Developers), That means you can have latest OS version from Microsoft, but you will run it with the latest Samsung firmware (which in your case would be the firmware that came with WP8 GDR3). Which in other words, your phone will still work on WP8.1 (not WP8.1.1), but you will occur few glitches or bugs regarding using old firmware on newest OS. Those bugs are few, like camera, and 1 or 2 others. But i think you will learn to cope with that. Phone will be still fully functional.
    Just to clarify things: If you are running on PfD your OS version will show Windows Phone 8.1, but if you have the latest firmware that goes with that OS version, it will show you Windows Phone 8.1 Update (which in other words is WP8.1.1)
    Third of all: It is very sad that T899M doesn't get the official WP8.1.1 firmware from Samsung, because T899M is 4G LTE capable phone, while ours i8750 are only HSPA+.
    Hope this helped you a bit with where you stand with your T899M. :)

    I wonder if it will fix the bootloop problem with the lastest PFD update.
    Does anyone want to try (I'm currently on the latest PfD, using a trick).

    EDIT: It can be a "preparation" for the next W10 build! Or just I'm maybe dreaming too much
