    Bought a Bush Windows Phone from Argos yesterday. It reports itself as an Archos-Bush phone, and is identical to the Blu Win Jr except this is for the UK market.

    The phone doesn't report what version it is running other then a version number; I can't recall what the number is, but it ends in 899 which I believe is Cyan.

    As yet there is no official update to Denim, so I dev unlocked the phone and enrolled it on the Preview for Developers program using the Windows Store app.

    No updates came through.

    Can someone tell me if the PfD delivers updates to ALL Windows phones or just to the Lumia range?

    I'd love the phone to receive some updates, so if someone can explain how, I'd be very grateful.

    Cyan/Denim are Lumia firmware names.
    PfD applies to all Windows Phones.

    Developer unlocked phone is not the same as P4D. Double check with below link how to enable P4D. http://www.wpxbox.com/install-window...ew-developers/

    Cyan and Demin give only Lumia phones firmware updates so you get no firmware updates to your phone. Firmware updates for your phone have to come from Bush.

    Thanks for the replies, and the clarification on PfD. I'll check the process when the phone is back in my hands.

    So, this non-Lumia phone won't have Cyan or Denim firmware. But it should still get OS updates.

    Yes they will get the OS updates. If the phone is not carrier locked it gets it from Microsoft but if it is carrier locked after release by the carrier.

    Assuming that you are not in US. Your devices most likely retail one and carrier can't do anything for it.

    You may get OS update but it depends if your phone OEM already make compatible firmware for it. In most cases huge OS update came with firmware update while minor updates doesn't require new firmware
