    Windows Phone 8.1 and Cyan firmware rollout to Lumia users

    Windows Phone users with existing Lumia handsets will begin receiving the Windows Phone 8.1 operating system and the Cyan firmware update starting Tuesday, according to company officials.

    Users with brand-new Lumias, such as the Lumia 930 and 630 already have Windows Phone 8.1 and Cyan. But just about every existing Lumia handset will be getting the new operating system and firmware refresh, as will almost all other non-Lumia Windows Phone 8 handsets.

    Note that not every Lumia user will get the new operating system and the firmware update on Tuesday. Microsoft execs are still saying that the rollout will be staged and progress "over the coming weeks." Microsoft has built a page that provides the status of the rollout, listed by handset, carrier and geographic region.

    It all depends on where you live. For example in the US T-Mobile still has the Cyan update under testing.I can't remember the address for Nokia's site about the Cyan update, as I read about it on my Lumia 521.

    I've already got the Windows Phone Developer Preview on my Lumia 521. I'm just waiting on the Cyan firmware update for my phone.

    Thanks, Shawn! Hopefully, AT&T will not be slow in getting this rolled out. In November, I leave AT&T for Verizon...

    The Lumia 925 and 625 are getting it first. The rest is under carrier discretion, I believe that is unless you're running Developer Preview of 8.1 and/or unlocked so it could be just a matter of time.

I have no problem picking up a Wi-Fi signal on my phone at home, but it is only 3 feet away. However, at my club I cannot pick up the local signal, even though others are picking it up fine on tablets. Me included when I use my tablet there. Any suggestions please!

My contract with AT&T was up, so I got rid of the old iPhone 3GS, which I hated and got a Nokia Lumia 920, which is a Windows 8 phone. I'm a "Windows guy", so this phone fits me perfectly. It's got a huge beautiful screen, is fast and smooth, does everything I want it to do, intuitively and it's...
