    With the build coming up VERY soon, I've been wondering:

    When will providers, namely Verizon, roll it out to our phones?

    Will it be available the day of or much later? If anyone knows, please let me know.

    Thanks!

    It'll roll out when it rolls out. This speculation happens every time and no one ever gets it right. Just be patient.

    Yes, that's true I suppose. Thank you.

    They won't roll it out day of because they will want to test and certify it first. If you want it sooner than later, you should just dev unlock your phone and get it through the preview program.

    Yes. I've already done this with the previous update. The only problem is, one, it voided my warranty (maybe) and, two, it might have bugs.

    I don't think any carrier is going to care if you dev unlock your phone and what bugs might be there would likely be minor. What they plan to release to the preview program should be what MS sends out to the carriers to certify, so it won't be an unoptimized mess.

    If you want some kind of timeframe, just look at how long it took Verizon to release the GDR3/Black update. I'm glad I didn't wait the 5-ish months

    First wait for Microsoft to say the official release date, then just add 2-3 months to that date.

    You actually would not believe what we are doing here to meet our dates. Sure, the Dev Preview may be late, but not much too much and the release date is fast approaching (in Dev time) and things are shaping up to be on time! The initiative to quicken our update schedule is gaining traction and everyone is full steam ahead!

    note: This is in no way any kind of official statement, it is just my observation here.

    I am glad to here that. While Microsoft and others have a bad wrap, it is fully within their power to kick things into gear and make customers happy.

    It did not void the warranty. Microsoft, in their user agreement for the dev preview, says that it may void the warranty. But Microsoft's lawyers are going to make them put that in so that no one can come back and sue them for damage to their phone. Think about it... Did Microsoft make your phone? If the answer is no, then they are not a party to the warranty, and cannot say whether the warranty is voided or not. This disclaimer is just the result of there being far too many lawyers in the world.

    That's good to hear! I have a Nokia phone.

    Thank you for what? You were asking a legitimate question and were given a smart alec answer. It doesn't matter how many times the question has been asked before.
