    Its good to see visual voicemail finally spreading from the iphone. I have to wonder though if o2 will allow MVNO's that use their network to access this feature. Im sure many giffgaff and Tesco mobile customers (me included) would love this!

    This is a good point but I can see it not happening, never know though. I'm just wondering if I should downgrade my 1520 from DP 8.1 to get this at the end of July or just wait and see.

    I think people in the preview get cyan when its released by the carrier? I may be wrong though

    I hope so. The halt by Microsoft has made me think twice, even if I don't have Bitlocker installed. May just wait until it is released by 02 and see.

    If Cortana is coming in Q4, that means sometime after August.. that is a bummer. I will be joining Three in October, shame O2 don't offer unlimited data.

    Found out that VVM on O2 will need a O2 branded handset to work. Unbranded phones won't have the option enabled as it needs O2's updated firmware.

    Aren't these the same people that have already stated that Cyan is available for all their handsets? Why would the make a statement to the contrary?

    They did say that it should work if you were to flash the relevant O2 rom to your phone, if anyone is feeling brave.

    Already done it on my Lumia 925

    Downgraded to Black then upgraded to Cyan/8.1 mainly for the VVM i have been waiting years for that feature from O2.

    It works wonderfully. so much nicer to retrieve voicemail messages. IMO it was worth the hassle just for that feature.

    So you started with an unbranded phone and then flashed an O2 rom?

    Ive just been on the chat to an 02 rep to ask if the wp8.1 update is now available for the lumia 820 they said yes its now available, but i cant find anywhere to update it, tried everything on phone to update even tried the link they sent me, still no, seems like they have been talking nonsense and don't know what they are on about, has anyone updated the 820 (not the dev prev) help would be great.

    Sadly, it's exactly because they are talking out of their rear end. A while ago they said it was available for all O2 devices, and more recently said it would be available on the 12th August. Make of that what you will...

    I was with Three but never again. They over charged me for months, added Spotify for my account when i already have it directly from Spotify, when calling up for the 50th time they called me and ***** and that I must have clicked to enable it (take five screens of "you sure" apparently, called me think, didn't know what I was on about, stupid and don't know phones, stupid as I was missing out on a great upgrade deal if I only keep my phone for seven more months.

    Since Cortana (in beta) for the UK is enabled in the GDR1 update for us UK users, so I would say when GDR1 becomes available to the general public. When that maybe, that is anyone's guess as GDR1 was pushed out last week to people on the preview program.

    I'm guessing November/December time for the general release.

    That time scale sounds plausible, hopefully by then they should have ironed out the kinks as the last thing they need is another bitlocker issue or bunch of 80xxxxxx errors.
