    Careful though, it'll void your warranty with your carrier and with Nokia. My wife just upgraded from an iPhone4 to a 1020, I installed the 8.1 update to make the transition for her easier. Now she's having an issue with the camera taking pictures all night long when it's plugged in charging (stuck button maybe? dunno). Anyway, both Rogers and Nokia confirmed to me that installing the update leaves me screwed. Even if the problem is hardware specific.

    Take it to a Microsoft Store or to you're local rogers store. Highly doubt that they will look at what OS it is running. T-Mobile took my mothers 925 and didn't ask questions and sent her a new one.

    Use Nokia Software for Retail and reset it back to WP8.0 and then see if the issue is still prevalent. If there is a problem, take it back to Nokia for repairs under warranty:-)

    How does that work exactly ? I used the preview for GDR3 and downloaded ( last October ) but wasn't sure that I wanted it, it was kinda buggy at first. I then plugged into NSU and it said there was an update available, it was Amber 3043.0000.1326.0017 which was the same as I had on my phone already -so what the heck I downloaded it and I still had GDR3... I think you mean something else don't you, maybe Nokia Recovery Tool or Care Suite ? because NSU doesn't do it.

    WP8.1 expected testing late May/early June
    Software Update Weekly Wrap - 24th April 2014 - Vodafone Community - 332933

    Preivew works great on my 820, looks like installing it gave me at least 2 months less anxiety.

    Its the Nokia Software Recovery Tool. It will tell you its going to load the same software as is already on the phone, if you are running 8.1 DP it cant do that because its not available on Nokias servers. You will get a clean install of WP8 (Black). I have gone back to WP8 on both my 1020 and 1520 using this method

    Is this the fix in NSU ? because I can't find a valid link to Nokia Software Recovery Tool -all the ones listed on WPC end up saying Error 404

    Or this at Nokia, a 0: http://www.nokia.com/us-en/support/software-recovery/

    heard from a Nokia Wholesaler yesterday.
    he said, WP8.1 is already been distributed to the Nokia Care Centers in India. but they are not making it public until the 630 launch i.e. 22nd May in India.
    he received this info from the company itself while their meeting in last week. thus, we can expect official 8.1 release in India by this month-end.

    Exactly. Most people who work at these places have no clue. Although, the MS Store is more likely to look at it before doing a return. But they are also more likely to not care that your os is an early 8.1. I once was in there with my surface pro which was still under warranty, but my keyboard was from my surface RT and was out of warranty. I had a small issue with the keyboard, the MS Store guy just gave me a brand new type cover 2, that was an awesome day.

    What does that have to do with installing the update? We don't get updates from 'care centers'. They get pushed out by the carriers. Even once officially released, some phones/networks won't get the update for a month or so after everyone else. (at least from past experiences) This time it's suppose to be faster.

    there is a different scenario in India. In India, there is no concept called Carriers as phones are completely independent from the carriers. thus, ways for updating is OTA, update through NSU by yourself or through Care Center. Care Centers do it for free for those handsets which are in warranty, and is a very commonly used by noobs and all those who are not interested in taking efforts and risking the installation process hurdles.

    I have a 820 with the developer WP8.1 and its great,
    Because you can save the apps on the SD card sometimes they dont work or dont update like whatsapp ( but just copy it back to phone memory and its oke)

    I do believe its save to use (got it up and running for serveral weeks)

    no it wont avoid your warranty. cuz i went to Nokia Care with WP 8.1 developer preview, they took my phone and gave me after 2 days with windows phone 8 amber. they don't care which version you are using. and it doesn't matter you have dev preview or not for official wp8.1. you can install it using dev preview also.

    I feel Lumia 930 and Win 8.1 will arrive hand in hand. At least in India.
