    If it's rolling out for the Lumia 928, should 8X owners expect it soon?

    I should hope so. Since they came across problems with the international update, I'm assuming they had to pull the update to fix some things. Either that or Verizon has had the update for awhile and decided to wait for the update from all its phones before releasing it.

    I going to assume that because they released the 928 update that 8x will see it in the coming days/weeks.

    Verizon needs time to disable FM radio.

    Why would they disable the radio? That's one of the key features in gdr2...

    HTC and Verizon never updated the HTC tropy to 7.8 so we might be waiting a while.

    In Verizon's defense when I used my trophy I got every update that was available except for 7.8. I even got an update for the disappearing keyboard that AT&T didn't push to their phones.

    The 928's hardware does not support FM radio. The release today for the 822 does include FM radio support. I wonder if Verizon is making sure they do not have the issues that the unlocked update from HTC had. I am eagerly awaiting the release to see how much my "Other" storage shrinks.

    Exactly. I've had the phone about 6 months, and I'm finally feeling the repercussions of only 16 GBs. My phone is sluggish, and I can't even update apps anymore without first uninstalling other apps or removing downloaded music.

    Such a waste. Hope Verizon releases the update soon and that it actually frees up some of my 5GB of "Other."

    Lets hope they do so soon. I've got a VZW 8X I use on t-mo because it is the most responsive 8X the 3 models in the US. I've read that GDR2 makes this run faster and with better battery life...so I'm looking forward to that.

    Get it right please. When designing the phone, Nokia asked Verizon about FM radio support, Verizon said NO....This is why it does not have the hardware...

    TO be honest with you, I think the hardware is there, I think it's a Verizon disabling it thing...

    So I've heard. It was mentioned in one of WPCentral's articles regarding GDR2. However, we won't know until WE GET IT. GAWD.

    Well, can't we see if someone with a 928 can check if there is?

    My fiancé has the 928 and I can confirm with GDR2 she now has group text. Her family members have iPhones so its definitely a welcomed addition. Hopefully our update comes soon. I have been patiently waiting since February for group text.

    Howdy!
    I have good news!

    Spoke to Verizon today about Verizon 8X group messaging and unable to send/receive MMS. He said there will be an update released tomorrow. He did not state whether it would be rolled out or not. So all those with Verizon HTC 8X, check tomorrow August 28th, 2013 for an update for WP8 software. Goodluck, i have been waiting ages for this! (six short, month-like ages....but ages none-the-less).

    It has the features of GDR2. The other one was clearly a previous update (Portico?)
