    That confused me.

    GDR3 = Update 3. It's the OS update for all devices. Currently we have the 'preview' version. It's not the 'official' update or even the RTM version.

    The next update after GDR3 is WP8.1 coming next year, first quarter. Carrier depending, if you have that issue.

    Also GDR stands for General Distribution Release. MS is now just calling them 'Updates'.

    Firmware and OS updates are different. GDRs are for OS updates only. Firmware is from the manufacturer, not MS. GDRs do not change the firmware number.

    GDR changes the OS version under About in Settings. If you installed GDR3 is should show 8.0.10512.142

    Can you answer the question of if you installed the preview or not?
