I've heard of people receiving Amber in France.

However they never specify their carrier. Did anyone receive the update on an unlocked device and not only on a carrier-branded device (orange)?

Thanks for your feedback!

If your phone came from carrier, it still is associated with that carrier and gets updates from them. Let's say I have a AT&T phone that I unlocked to use with T-Mobile. I would still get updates from AT&T.

Yes, but your device is still an AT&T branded device even if it is unlocked. What this is about is about unbranded devices, so even if he bought it from a specific carrier, unless its specifically branded for that carrier, the updates will come directly from Nokia. This is largely the case in Europe where carriers sell unbranded devices. I bought my phone from the orange online store in the UK, but its an unbranded French model so it will receive the update direct from Nokia and not via Orange.

Fair enough, but he used the terms interchangeably on the OP.

True, but it seems that there are two versions, an unbranded version and an orange branded version with different software codes, but both are available according to Nokia. So hopefully they'll be hitting our devices soon! :)

10 responses and none relevant to the subject lol. I guess there is no French community on wpcentral :)

I am confuse. You have an unbranded/unlocked phone, you'll get the update from Nokia. I have a unbranded/unlocked HTC 7 Trophy, all my updates came from HTC. I had an unbranded/unlocked Nokia N8, all my updates came through Nokia. I had an unbranded/unlocked Treo Pro, all my updates came through Palm.

So your update is coming soon. Hopefully someone with an unbranded/unlocked 920 will post in here soon for you. :smile:
