    Is ur phone carrier bound? If so has ur carrier officially pushed out gdr3 for ur phone? If not then has HTC officially updated the specific model to GDR 3 in ur region?

    Yes the preview app is not allowing me to enroll in the developer preview because my phone OS has to be 8.0.10322.71.or higher. The problem is how I am gonna update my phone when my phone says u r up to date

    Unless ur carrier pushes an update out u won't be able to use it. I guess u shld flash ur ROM and install the latest gdr3 version but not sure if its possible on HTC like Nokia...

    Actually the preview app was supposed to support pre GDR 3 version I.e the last version of gdr2 I dunno if their last update to the app made GDR 3 mandatory...

    The way I am seeing this, is that you have to either contact Tmob US and ask, as I recall Tmob in Germany got it on their 8X's I think over here in the UK got it as well, but here its part of EE with Orange. The other is to have it unlocked, that way you will get the updates for a unlocked phone.

    Another way I see it, is that you will not get the preview but should get the actual 8.1 release, along with the GDDR3 update. I remember reading that these major updates are not Carrier pushed for 18 months.

    I think I can put Verizon sim card because Verizon already released gdr3 for their htc8x and download the update and switch back to tmobile. But only If I can I find someone with Verizon sim card

    ^it doesn't work that way. updates are not linked to sim cards they are linked to the carrier the phone is designated to.
    is yours a T-Mobile HTC 8X? in other words, is there any T-Mobile markings on the device and did you buy it from T-Mobile?

    SIM cards have nothing to do with it on WP, unlike Android. If you want the latest update, use the developer preview to check for an update. If there is nothing there, you are on the latest update for your phone.

    Edit: didn't read the first post. It sounds like you are on GDR2, have you tried opting out of the developer preview, uninstalling the preview and then trying to manually update? If that doesn't work, have you tried to hard reset your phone yet?

    No I bought it from metropcs and it was unlocked and I put my tmobile sim card in it. It doesn't have tmobile markings on it nor metropcs markings

    Developer preview app is asking me to update my phone to 8.0.10322.71 or higher. When I go to the settings it says there is no update
