Nokia 1308 firmware update rolling out for Lumia 620 in Russia, Lumia 920 in Jordan

Lumia 620

Those who reside in Russia will be able to further enjoy the improvements made to the overall user experience with the 1308 firmware update, which is now rolling out for the Nokia Lumia 620 in the region. 

WP7Forum reports that consumers are receiving notifications to upgrade the software on their Windows Phones. If you're not familiar with exactly what's included in the update, 1308 bundles a number of fixes and improvements to sensors, screen brightness, the camera and also enables users to keep on top of what's stored on their Lumia Windows Phone with Storage Check.

On a side note, we've received word that the firmware update is also rolling out in Jordan for the Lumia 920. Let us know in the comments if you're receiving the updates in your region. Be sure to check for updates by heading into Settings > Phone Update > Check for Updates (this update requires Wi-Fi). It's good to see the Middle East and beyond receive some love.

Nokia 1308 firmware update rolling out for Lumia 620 in Russia, Lumia 920 in Jordan

FOR GexN : You provider ? T-Mobile? Orange? Play? Plus?
I live in Czech Republic - Nokia Lumia 920 - distribution Poland POLKOMTEL PLUS still waiting, 

No 1308 update yet for my unlocked Lumia 920 (Orange Branded / Model RM-821_eu_poland_360). I purchased this from GSM Nation and am using it in Mumbai, India on Vodafone.

Same here, I really need this update since my Phone is constantly out of space from my other storage taking more than 12 GB :/

I don't want to offend anybody, but this is just ridiculous. Why on earth do phones in Jordan get it before my German unlocked 920? The market there is much smaller

Says the guy in Germany... What about Australia? /s
But on a serious note, nothing yet in Australia - Outright 920

Hi Mr. Australia, there are over 80 million people living in Germany - I think he's got a point :)

Australia is 21.54 times larger than Germany.... Your point is... ;)

Sorry, I figured we were talking about stuff that doesn't matter...

Not talking about size here. Germany is number 1 in Europe, so we should be golden.
Point is: We are in the same boat with no update, just shameful.
Cheers man

Man, don't get me started. We get it right after Mars and Uranus on open l920s in Austria, so trust me: It could be way worse for you ;)

I have a Poland unlocked, which I changed the firmware to the spanish one, and I haven't any update, yet :(

Nokia do u remember AUSTRALIA? u released the 920 here the same time as the US yet still no update.....

It depends on region of purchase. I haven't received 1308 for my UAE bought Lumia 920 using in India, although 1308 has been rolled out in India.

I don't have a lumia, nor do I have a windows phone 8. But I see my name in the article heading and I smile. Woohoo! Go Jordan :D

I got this update long back on 2nd April in India for my 620 which i had bought on 28th march

I have a question, i bought mine 920 in singapore, but i'm living in indonesia..
and currently the 920 is getting the update 1308 here in indonesia, but i'm received nothing on my handset, so is that means that mine will be follow the singapore?

I'm seriously waiting for the Australian unbranded 920 update. Microsoft (or Nokia) sure are taking their time. -_-

You should be thankful as AT&T 1308 version had a connectivity bug ..
The rest of the world got a bug free firmware

well nice to see my country on WPCentral main page :D

actually i never waited OTA updates ....

its been like more than 2 months since i got the 1308 update for my L820

 
 

Finally someone cares from Jordan! Lol I feel you bro! But what will you do now sense navifirm is down :P

Finland, Elisa/Saunalahti operator, unlocked Lumia 920 and no 1308 FW over OTA yet...
I wonder what's the reason behind this regional/phased update rollout for Windows Phone operating system and firmware upgrades? I'm not even that frustrated about it, but I would really want to know the reason. Surely it is something technical, or maybe they need an all-clear from the biggest operators even before rolling out OTA upgrades for even unlocked phones.
I understand operator-specific rollouts for example in the U.S, but there does not appear to be any logic on why unlocked global upgrades are delayed this way.
 
 

The updates are always done in phased manner so that buggy software should affect less persons ..
The same thing happened 1308 AT&T Lumia 920 which had connectivity bug , now Nokia fixed it so that rest of the world would get bug free firmware

Come on Nokia/MS, what's the problem in rolling it out globally? Apple can do it with their iOS updates too, why can't you do it?
 
Austria, unbranded L820, still waiting ...

Got it on my unbranded 820 in the UK after checking for updates! It's fantastic, got me 1.7GB back of the 4GB i had in other!

If anyone got the 820 updated please check and let me know if we can now manually assign ip and dns for Wi-Fi. Just eager to know and losing my patience as i cannot use wi-fi at work :'( It would be a big failure for Microsoft and Nokia if they have not worked on it. Damn this issue is addressed with WP 7.5 too.

Did you automatically get it back or do you have to uninstall apps manually? I updated the 820 with 1308 and the storage check doesn't really clear up your "other" storage.

Nothing here in Sydney Aust. Seems as though AT&T have priority over ever man and his frog!
