    I thought carriers are no more in the picture. If its carrier problem then we wouldn't have got 8.1 so early. Isn't it?

    Carriers are the reason the developer preview exists. This "preview" is effectively a way for users to update their phones while Microsoft is still technically complying with whatever arbitrary policy the carriers have on official updates (which is to never release them OTA so they can just sell you new phones with them pre installed).

    It will be out on July 17. I guess that because 27th week from January started on July 17. This 27th is from evleaks picture
    This week is the week 28... That leaked picture actually shows that the OTA update should start next week in Benelux countries.

    I think everywhere will be similar to BeNeLux.

    My only rebuttal would be why is there a concern of voiding the warrantees?

    Its not just up to MSFT. The carriers have to accept the update. I know despite having a 1520, the fact the I'm on AT&T tells me I will be one of the last to get it. That's how it was for Amber and Black.
    Here in India updates are independent of carriers. We get it directly from Nokia/MS. Still it hasn't been rolled out here. So yes MS is to blame for having keeping their customers wait even though everything is ready.

    I too mentioned a couple of weeks ago, I believe they are waiting for more WP8.1 to get sold out to meet their sales target post which they will give us the update.

    Carriers, carriers, are dead weight, old dinosaurs. Remember that iPhone started updates and still do it regardless of what carrier's want and it worked. Apple took the market. Good OS with fast and free evolution.

    Android phones receive almost no updates and have a bigger share.

    For those that are thinking of ditching WP because you have been waiting for 3 weeks for the update and not got it yet, don't go Android, you will not have the patience to wait for updates there, it could be over a year that's if you even see any updates

    We all need patience

    Good point. Outside of enthusiasts like us, I don't think updates matter. High end Androids do get updates, but they're usually months after Google releases them.

    That said, I think that updates for WP are more important than for iOS & Android because of the ground they need to make up. When there are updates to iOS & Android, it's usually bug fixes, a little eye candy, and maybe a couple new features. They're both already at the front of the technological advancement to date. Any feature added is often something new to the industry, not features that have been around for awhile in other platforms. WP, because they're coming from behind, need these "old" features added; hence the all-important updates.

    Four days have left for the release of cyan update in India as per Microsoft tweet and I don't see that happening soon. This is unfair treatment towards us as we are the one of the largest market for WP. Microsoft are you listening??? We are dying of waiting...
    The original quote was 'should be rolling out in India during the first 2 weeks of July'.

    Nowhere does it say that this will definitely start being OTA'ed to users in India. I would install the 8.1 DP and enjoy that until the official Cyan update shows up.
    Be patient, I suspect it will start to happen towards the end of July for almost everyone....

    The tweet was "first weeks of July", there was no 2.

    Maybe mods should merge all these thread into one?...

    Also they are still in the transition phase in regards to the d & s acquisition, hence most likely the reason for the pilot.

    Microsoft have scored a serious own goal with the whole 8.1 rollout.
    This comes after they've announced 8.1.1 aswell?
    The whole thing is a shambles and smacks of serious problems that they won't admit too, yet!
    Why random countries, random handsets if all is not well and WHY THE hell go public with 'Windows phone 8.1 coming soon' if it isn't?
    Unless of course it's a marketing ploy to p1ss current WP8 users off so they go out and buy into the new 8.1 handsets or am I just being cynical?
    there is a reason why Microsoft came up with preview for developers. people who can't wait can get the update easily without waiting. now firmware is totally a diff thing. Blame your OEM for that.

    Well. I agree MS is making us wait a bit longer than we expected. But at least the update will be available for all smartphones running Windows phone 8. That's a much better case than android where most handsets never receive any updates at all. It'll be worth the wait, though I wish MS releases it sooner than later.
