No word yet on the release on Rogers but hopefully like Update 2 it will be sooner than later.

 

Happy Thanksgiving 🙂

Are you talking about GDR3?

But I did not get yet GDR2. Every day I am checkin updates but it says "Your phone is up to date".

When Rogers will update my Lumia 920 to GDR2?

Hello isadykov


No one knows when Rogers will release it. You just have to wait when it pops up or someone else says its out.


GDR3 is rolling out to some selected HTC 8X devices.

Sorry, I should have stated the GDR3 update was received on my HTC 8X.  Took about 10 mins.  Some nice new features such as Driving Mode, plus Start screen seems to use more of the display (and remembers the setting).  Ringtones and sounds were temporarily lost after the update, but restored after hard reset.
