as you can see here:
GDR2 is on the way. More information: Windows Phone 8 update history | Windows Phone How-to (United States)
But at the moment I didn't get any notification about it (Huawei W1 with Vodafone Germany).

wonder if it will fix the bug when saving a jpeg to the phone and also the other storage bug. maybe even the EAS storage card encryption policy bug for business email sync on phones without an sd card slot and a fix for ones that do? a group messaging fix on verizon would be nice too, along with the ability to create playlists on the phone in Xbox Music without needing a computer.

This is from the US site. SG webpage doesn't show the following update. What a bummer~ Can someone verify this is indeed GDR2?
Truth is with Nokia, I'm just waiting for Amber. :D
Wish Nokia & Microsoft would just release their updates worldwide and OTA, don't want my unreliable service provider to mess up my phone experience.

If the past updates are anything to go by we won't be getting Amber and GDR2 as separate updates. That would cost too much for MS and Nokia. It makes much more common sense for MS and Nokia to work together to provide an update that will roll both into one package, delivered to the customer. Of course there are phones that aren't Nokia, so MS will deliver a separate build to them without the 'Amber' things. These builds will be internally tested and tweaked before being delivered to the carriers, who again test them extensively. Once everything is given the go-ahead that's when the carriers start rolling out the updates to our phones. Typically those with contracts will get the updates first (updates tend to be rolled out over a period of 28 days with more and more IMEI numbers being 'unlocked' to receive the update every day, this is to make sure the servers aren't broken by requests to update.
At least this is how I think it works...

Microsoft is changing this up so that this process ends with the manufacturers in the future.

There is still a decent amount of time to wait....

I'm thinking that this means that the update is either RTM or is about to be, otherwise they wouldn't know specific build numbers.--
Just a sample of the devices I've owned over the years.....
