    I have a 520 Lumia Black, it runs on Vodafone in the UK so don't know when it will be made available to me, I'll just let it happen when it happens.

    @ popeye


    Did you upgrade via "Phone update" or reset in "About" in Settings?


    @ Vlad, Joan, and stupops.


    It could be that resetting the phone may get the upgrade before scheduled. 8.1 is probably on those "Reset" servers ready for distribution. I had to reset mine because I had 8.1 Developers Preview on it. I thought it would go back to 8, then upgrade, but it upgraded straightaway. Proof that 8.1 is on those servers. Try it at your own discretion.

    Hi there HG, just got here. I upgraded through the "About" settings with wifi on of course. No SIM card so that may have had something to do with it working straight away.

    Thanks, popeye. You hard reset then. I'm on limited data so I went via WiFi (Internet).

    I think that resetting would get the upgrade on those models that are eligible.

    Sorry I messed up. I updated through Settings - System Applications - phone update - check for updates, no hard reset. Not through About Phone.

    It is just above about on my phone. I would think it is the same on all wp8 phones, maybe not?

    Ok. No harm done.

    I'm hoping someone tries the hard reset to find out if that works. Use your own discretion though!
