    a question for the Windows folks here since i have been Android for the last few years.

    from my reading it appears that Windows 8.1 has had several updates like v1, v2, v3 or whatever it is called and so if this is the case and apparently Verizon has had this 8.1 for some time then is it possible we get 8.1 today/tomorrow and its still old?
    Don't let the names like Cyan or Denim confuse you, those are firmware updates for the Lumia series only. The 8.1 update for the SE is the most up-to-date version for non-Lumias. While Lumias have some features, I'm envious of the IR blaster on the SE. So there.

    Windows Phone 8.1 has had one Update, titled Update 1. (8.1.1 if you will)

    If Verizon's activity on the Nokia's are any indication, this release probably will leapfrog over 8.1.0 and go to 8.1 Update 1.

    Update 2 exists, but hasn't been released or put into much detail yet.
    thanks for the info

    I've used update 2 on a 640 and Kyocera device. So it exists and is called Update 2

    i have the update as well and its updating as i type this. i was shocked though as it is 2MB and that is really small or at least i expected it to be larger.

    i took screen shots of everything and will update OP with them a little later since work needs my attention at the moment.

    my 2MB update is complete and i am now running OS version : 8.0.10532.166

    unless im wrong that should start with OS Version: 8.1*****

    UPDATE - that apparently was an update to accept the update and now a much larger file is downloading

    i have to use my phone for a work call for next 45 minutes or so and will have to wait to install and upload pics etc..

    I have the Developer's Preview, and still nothing. I've been clicking "Check for updates" for the last 5 hours, and it keeps telling me that my phone is up to date. OS Version: 8.10.14203.306, firmware version: 2218.14.03.2. I hope that getting the preview does not make me wait even longer for the official update! I need the bugs to end!
