HTC 8X Windows Phone 8.1 update

Hello,

 

Can anyone from Rogers confirm when we expect to receive Windows Phone 8.1 update for HTC 8X?

 

The Nokia Lumia line up from Rogers already received the WP 8.1 update. Also, will the update include recently announced Update 1?

Forget  it. HTC 8X user will never get windowsphone 8.1 update. Firstly they told March then july and now October. But still there is no informations about it.

 

Best Phone is Apple and Google phones. You will get all the updates.

 

No windows Guys......

 

Please forward this to every HTC 8x users and make them understand that windows phone is not good for update. Now a days smartphone is useless if user does not get any updates.

 

Regards,

Straight Forward Person.

I think Rogers is waiting for Windows 10.  Rogers just doesn't want to provide any product support to its users.  I have a 8x and an Optimus G.  Both are running on ancient firmware.  Avoid Rogers hardware at all cost.

Hello raski

Rogers Darrel is a mod on here. He only posts update on that thread when the back end team office of head office gives him any updates. Until then he can't post anything and might not know what is going on. Hopefully he can come in and chime a bit.

@vjkumran, actually even Android phones are restricted by the carriers.  Google Nexus phone maybe the only exception.  Microsoft should follow Apple and push the firmware update themselves.   Hopefully Rogers will give HTC 8x users the 8.1 update before Win10 is here.

I think its a combination of device manufacturers and carriers as each one has to modify the OS to their needs before releasing it. When I was looking into the HTC ONE M8 as a possible buy a lot of complaints by HTC users is that they didn't get as many updates.

 

According to some articles the Denim update should be out "soon"

 

I got tired of waiting for the Rogers updates windows phone 8.1 update 1.  so I installed the Dev preview. I now get updates from microsoft directly to my phone and will probably get windows 10 however doing that to your phone can and probably voids your warranty. My phone hasn't had a warranty for a year so I don't really care. An option but definitely research the possible risks before considering the Dev Preview.
