    Hi all,

    I was just wondering if anyone could answer me this.

    I have a 920 purchased from Clove, which was unlocked and worked fine off the bat with my o2 sim.

    As so far as I can see, o2 won't be carrying the 920 just yet, and I was wondering if therefore I would ever receive the Portico update over the air?

    Is my phone looking to Nokia's server, or o2's server to find the Portico?

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Rich

    I got a 920 on Orange contract - got it unlocked, using O2 sim and just got portico if that helps.

    OP: You'll probably get it shortly after the update rolls out properly on the 31st Jan. Can't say for sure, but that's my guesstimate.

    You'll still be using EE firmware though, so that doesn't really help. I got mine from Phones4U and it was also EE locked. And yes, I've been Portico'd

    You'll get it with the rest of the Unbranded UK 920s, which is whenever Nokia decide to click 'go'. I don't think Unbranded UK phones are a high priority for them at the moment as there aren't that many of them.

    THAT. Because most of them in the UK were meant to be officially sold via EE exclusivity. So anyone who went ahead with an unlock, according to Nokia, doesn't exist. Also, the rest of 920s on other networks are really really small number, so probably 31st Jan onwards?

    I got a replacement phone a few weeks ago after having my original nicked. Had a few updates come up a week or so ago. Is there any way for me to see if Portico was included in them?

    Yep tried that (a lot!) but so far, it's not found an update. Fingers crossed for the 31st.

    Makes sense. My phone, as far as I can see, isn't even listed for downloading for a 'manual' update.

    Hopefully the Portico update will level things up firmware wise...

    I just got a phone call from Nokia, they don't have a date for unbranded UK devices yet. But they did say it should be "soon".

    They should make it a priority because this is what they are handing out to corporates to test, incredibly short sighted.

    Don't hold your breath as roll out will last until early March! So it could be a few weeks. Trust me, you aren't missing out on much!

    I have an L820 from O2 (UK) with a 3 (UK) sim card in it, did not receive any update, even after checking. I have seen reports of O2 users with L820 getting the update though, i wonder why i didn't get it?

    I accidentally destroyed my EE Lumia 920, that had Portico installed, Didn't have any insurance, so had to buy the handset outright from Phones4U, disappointed not to have Portico on my new handset.

    I do hope that with the current flurry of other network operators taking up the Lumia 920, that this may get some traction in the United Kingdom.
