GDR3 Coming Soon

So there is a lot of talk as to when the GDR3 update will be rolling out to our lovely Windows Phone devices in Australia. Below is a table of carrier data. You can see that many carriers have completed or a close to completing their testing and are waiting for Microsoft to flick the switch so we shouldn’t have to wait too much longer.

At this time Optus does not have a page that shows when they are planning to release updates. Their website is particularly unhelpful and if you are an Optus subscriber we would encourage you to provide feedback to the carrier that its not only Android users that want updates.

You can always force the update in the usual way. That means all three carriers have released the update on the eve of the Lumia launch.

A Late Christmas Gift from Vodafone

HTC TrophyFor those of us who are all too familliar with the keyboard bug that turned up in mango, some of us will get a little grin on their face when the ‘update is available’ alert pops up over the next few weeks. Vodafone has announced that its Australian HTC 7 Trophy will begin to recieve the update over the next few weeks as is usual with Windows Phone updates. Great work to Vodafone for getting the bug fix to its customers! How about you Telstra?
