    Black update now available in Philippines for L920 (unlocked RM-821_apac_philippines_388).

    Already had the GDR3 preview installed.

    Update went smoothly; although it took almost 2 hours to install and update (after downloading).

    Nice touch that after the final restart it gives a popup notification "Welcome to Nokia Lumia Black", which links to a nokia.com webpage.

    Nokia Beamer, Nokia Camera, and Nokia Storyteller Beta all installed afterward. Will play around with everything tonight and give any updates.

    I hope L720 will be next here in the Phil. 😊

    Hi peeps

    Using a Lumia 820 on Optus

    Got my Lumia Black update this morning Sydney time. Install went a bit funny compared to GDR2 (which was a faultless install/upgrade) but managed to sort itself out with a lil patience.

    Did a full phone reset after install to start everything off nice and clean. No issues so far. Can install Nokia Beamer and Play To.

    Pretty satisfied here so far, I've been a lurker for a while but figured its about time to join in case I have issues with my GDR3 down the track.

    I don't think I will but just in case.

    Horrible feeling EE UK will be lagging behind again a la GDR2 from looking at the Nokia update page. Where other carriers are rolling out for the 'lower' models, EE is still 'waiting for approval'.

    Camera seems to take shots quicker. Shots taken seem to matched what gets saved. Unlike before where the saved file would lose clarity from the preview.

    So far so good. Nokia Camera app is working well.��

    Black on my L925. Already had Dev Preview GDR3. Mobile data seems to be a bit flaky after the update. I'm going to try a reset and see if it's ok then

    Sat here waiting too. They are pants. They have called ne twice to offer me some "loyalty discounts" though. Poor offerings.

    I'm so excited to get my phone back from repairs tomorrow. Will download Black in an instant (available in Romania).

    I read something about some changes to Nokia Camera especially for the L820, yeah, very excited.


    PS: The guys at the store tried to pull a fast one on me. Had to send the phone to repairs a 2nd time :(. Now it's already been in repairs for 41 days.

    I'm still waiting for the update. I have a Red Lumia 920 RM-821. Nokia's official website says it's available in India. Many others have even updated but I still don't see any signs of the update. I don't understand what the problem is. It keeps saying that the phone is up-to-date!

    Got it the other day on my L820 in New Zealand on a parallel imported handset from Singapore

    I had to use NSU retail to update to Amber so it was cool to get Black over the air.

    Nokia Lumia 820 Black update on EE, at least this time they told us what was being updated, notifications on glance screen are alright, but still underwhelmed by the lack of a visible notification light. If it werent for this major oversight id be saying 10/10 instead of 7/10.

    Small improvements are good but why are they ignoring such a needed feature?

    I don't think Lumias have those notification lights. So it's more of hardware matter.

    a light would be Ok, but you can turn the glance thing on permanently I think. That has notifications.

    Actually, yeah. What's the deal with lighting notifications? I thought those were useful for letting you know when you have recieved a message or call when your display is off. Buf if you are using (like all of us) the Glance Screen 2.0 for notifications, what would be the point for notification lights? (of course Samsung, HTC and Huawei are at a loss here, but I presume a L820 owner wouldn't care)

    Glance screen 2.0 uses battery, double tap to wake uses battery, then we have a lockscreen to navigate ontop of that... seems an awful lot of hassle to find out if you missed a message or call, a notification light would have been simpler... at least now we have a choice... can u turn the lockscreen off?
