    No carrier has released GDR2 OTA for the 920 so why are people flipping out as if they are missing out on something? Secondly, there was no date given for the release so I don't see why people are losing their **** like they missed some kind of deadline. We know it's coming this month so sit tight and take some deep breaths.

    I would like to receive updates sooner as well but doesn't mean going nuts here is going to solve anything.
    I feel it should be released at the same time that way no ones left out if all don't have then none should seems only fair or advise the consumers " hey if your phone is a carrier phone you will be last for updates but you will get it just after everyone else" then at least we now what to expect in the future

    And all this about " there's nothing official out about gdr2" what do you mean not official its not a fake maybe not an official ota update but its the real update so those with the gdr2 update are enjoying the real gdr2 just much sooner than us pissed carrier customers

    According to the Customer Service for Nokia Canada, they said it will be released to carriers in Q3. Keep in mind that carriers will still have to 'test' the software.

    Not sure if it means anything, but I did message Nicolas today and received a reply that no date is set, but he did confirm that the update is in testing, so we know it is at least that far along.

    Wow! Ok, I've sent a tweet to Rogershelps and Nicolas replied but didn't mention that. Hope that it is in testing!

    Carrier testing is typically a couple of weeks so end of the month sounds reasonable.

    testing for what the fm radio?? Really if it were a bad or faulty update guess what Nokia would not have made it .nokia tested it already why does the carrier have to test it too makes no sense if gdr2 could not run on att they would not be selling the 1020

    Ask the HTC owners with bricked 8x's or the Ativ users who have to hard reset to get DataSense.

    They also have to make sure all the new stuff runs on their network without any issues I believe.

    So according to Nokia's website availability Amber is coming soon to Rogers, where everyone else is either waiting for approval or available :(

    I assume waiting for approval is farther along than coming soon.

    Well apparently the update is live in many countries now, almost sounds like its bypassing the carriers all together. I wonder if Nokia and Microsoft are pushing it out and carriers can update their firmware at their own pace

    Sorry if this is a dumb question, but people with a Rogers 920 without GRD2... I see the Nokia Pro Cam/Smart Cam/Video Trimmer/Video Uploader in the store. I saw it a few days ago too, but then it randomly disappeared (well, and the Smart Cam said it wasn't available for my phone - now it is). I thought these apps were only for people with GRD2? I want them, but do not want to risk having my phone glitch. I thought GRD2 was supposed to "unlock" the higher ISO feature available on Nokia Pro Cam...? So confused. Help!

    Positive that you need the Amber update, which is basically tied to GDR2.

    "Coming soon" sounds like the update hasn't even reached the testing phase yet.
