O2 UK and Telus begin Lumia 620 Amber update, also available on Navifirm for some

Lumia 620 OTA

Good news for those with the super adorable Nokia Lumia 620 on O2 in the UK as we’re getting reports that the Lumia Amber update with the GDR2 OS is now rolling out. Likewise, two nights ago we teased that the Telus update was coming and it too is now live (Koodo is still pending approval).

Featuring the Glance screen, SMS and call filtering, camera fixes, flip to silence and more, the Amber update along with Microsoft GDR2 OS refresh should make the already fun Lumia 620 even better.


Firmware 1329 for the Lumia 620 now on Nokia's severs

So far, the Lumia 620 has seen a more limited rollout of Amber. While the update is available on Telus in Canada and evidently now in the UK on O2, whole regions like India are still waiting on it.

We can at least confirm our unlocked Hong Kong edition is now getting Amber (via Nokia Software Updater), whereas 24-hours ago it was not available. That should tell you that Nokia is constantly adding the update to their servers and various carriers and regions should be getting the update soon. Nokia has promised all Windows Phone 8 Lumias should be on Amber by the end of September. 

We’ll update this post shortly with any Amber-Lumia 620 info we have as soon as our update is complete.

For now, you can commiserate or celebrate in our Lumia 620 forums: forums.wpcentral.com/nokia-lumia-620

Thanks, Mujassar R., for the tip

Sill no sign of it on EE for the 920. They were the first to get the 920 but have a bad record for rolling out updates and customer care.

Downloading this on my Telus 620 right at this moment. Hopefully this will clean up some of my other storage stuff. Had to uninstall a bunch of apps just to have enough room to download it.

I'm curious, the article states:

Nokia has promised all Windows Phone 8 Lumias should be on Amber by the end of September. 
Where has Nokia stated this?

Good question. I'd like to know what that implies for those of us waiting. Can we throw all moral judgment aside on October 1st, if we are not?

ATT, I know where you live.  You'd better check under your bed tonight, 'cause I'll be there waiting...waiting for you!!

I'm on O2 in the UK. After getting error checking for update for the last couple hours the update has now downloaded.
Now it's stuck on preparing to install 100%.

Stayed on preparing to install 100% for about 10 minutes.
 
Phone then rebooted and the updated installed smoothly.
 
All fine now.

Well, since they have finally approved the GDR2 updates for both the 520 and the 820 in the last few days, I would hazard a guess that whoever stated this was talking bollocks.
 
Consequently, my hopes are raised that we may see the 920 update listed as 'coming soon' before 20th September.
