    I'm about to buy a New, old Stock (NOS) ATIV S and want to make sure that I stay on the final update on WP8 and not go to 8.1. How do I do that?

    I simply prefer the FB/Twitter integration on WP8.

    My concern is that it will have a *hit load of OTA updates waiting and I want to only install up to WP8 GDR3.

    How do I make sure of this?

    Just don't update then. Not that that is easy to do.
    But you can do this. Change the csc to one that did not or won't get the update. Like csc XEF

    I think you can get away with turning off the auto-downloading of updates, the auto-update feature is very recent.

    I also think some S's never got 8.1, so that might be something. I'd update as far as you wanted since I believe OTA updates are delivered one-after-the-other then stop. Worst'll probably be some update alert on every boot.

    The facebook integration in Windows Phone 8.0 does no longer work.

    Facebook retired (shut down) the APIs Microsoft was using in the old message hub, so that old phones that are still on 8.0 will just get error messages now. The twitter integration is still the same in 8.1 Only better! because you can make tweets with Cortana, just say "twitter new tweet blablablablabla" and there you go, you sent a tweet.
