Well I am guessing that we wont get this update either. I had to sign up as a Dev to get update 3.

I would also like to know when this is being pushed out. Looks like its already been approved by other carriers. VZW always seems to be behind on "Approvals".

Shows here it's waiting on them: http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-north-americ...

Nokia bundled Lumia Black with update three on the standard update cycle. If you already have update 3 you will just get black when everyone else is getting update 3 along with black.

I would hazard a guess that the Lumia Icon is the holdup. At least that's the scuttlebutt.

A lot of people already have the Update3 (unofficially through Microsoft).  What everyone wants is the ability to use the features that come with the new Nokia Black firmware update.  There are apps that can be downloaded and used on the Lumia 928  but only if you have the Nokia Black firmware update.  These new features such as Glance screen notifications, Nokia Beamer app, etc. CANNOT be used without the Nokia Black firmware update, even with the Update3 installed.  Verizon needs to put this out to us customers WITHOUT DELAY!  If this takes more than a few weeks to get out, I might have to consider filing a class action lawsuit against Verizon for discrimination.  If Apple iPhone users can get firmware updates directly from Apple immediately without Verizon testing anything, then Microsoft/Nokia users should have the same capability.  Otherwise it's discrimination!

I agree. I really wish Verizon stop discriminating against those who don't use Android and iPhone. If this going to be the treatment WP users are going to get, T-Mobile or AT&T maybe the way to go. T-Mobile will buyout our Verizon contracts.

It is a shame that we have waited this long and still don't have GDR3.  There are a lot of great features I am ready to use.  If this is the norm, then I think I am going to be looking elsewhere when my contract is up, just a few months.

I updated Monday (1/27) and now NONE of my non-native applications will open.

Just does this refresh animation back to the homescreen.

Anyone else having this issue / know how to resolve without a hard reset?
