I have seen the Nokia 620 phone that my brother owns albeit it is with Telus get his Amber update . When will KooDo offer this update for the Nokia 520 ?

Will unlocking the phone allow for faster updates that are pending approval from KooDo ?

The Lumia Amber update begins rolling out in August – you’ll get a notification on your phone when it’s ready to go. The update will be available for Nokia Lumia 920, 820, 720, 620, 520, 928, 822, 521 and 810.



Your phone notifies you once an update is available. We (Nokia) ask you to be patient, as updates for Nokia Lumia range are always released gradually. To make sure you don’t miss out on the notification, check on your phone that under Settings > Phone Update > “Tell me when updates are available for my phone” is enabled.

Unlocking the device won't allow you to receive the update any faster.

Hurray...status just turned to "available" for all carriers in Canada for the Lumia 520! :)

Wondering when the message to update will pop up.

Radio works good and phone feels a bit faster with apps and operations. Too bad the 520's don't get the glance screen. :(

Confirmed. The Amber update successfully installed on my Lumia 520. I like the Data Sense option that monitors data usage (mobile or Wi-Fi). FM radio another cool feature. Moving between apps and pages, the Lumia 520 feels a little more responsive. I may have missed this feature from the last OS version, but I see an option to add both an internet and mms apn. Overall, the upgrade was easy to install, took about twenty five minutes to complete.

I noticed the WWAN indicateor has changed from H/H+ to 4G. I like the flip over to silence a call feature as well

Looking forward to GDR3 now.

Yeah it's definitely a nice update, for anyone about to do it it appears to hang at 100% preparing the update for quite some time. Just be patient it eventually reboots and installs, but I think I stared at it sitting at 100% for like 10 mins.
