Black update for Rogers Nokia Lumia 520 due March 10

Good news if you’re on Rogers and patiently waiting for the Lumia Black and Update 3 to hit your Lumia 520, as Rogers has refreshed their support page with a due date: Monday, March 10.

The Lumia Black and Update 3 OS refresh bring all sorts of new features to existing Lumia owners, including doublet tap to wake, StoryTeller support, new camera algorithms and Driver Mode to handle notifications.

So far, every update has hit devices at 1PM ET, so we’re betting if you check for an update next Monday on your 520 at 1:01 PM, you should start downloading the latest version. Make sure you’re on Wi-Fi and have a full charge beforehand.

Black update for Rogers Nokia Lumia 520 due March 10


So I'm commenting here because I want someone to read my comment, :D.

Can anybody tell me whats the difference between GDR3 and Lumia Black??? Also, what is Rogers? 

And maybe too: anybody have news about when this update is coming to south america? for "Claro"

Gdr3 is an os update from Microsoft, Lumia black is a combination of that os update plus extra features from Nokia.
Tl;dr: it's Nokia's version of gdr 3

They really need to merge the Nokia exclusive updates with the existing developer preview program, bypass the carriers altogether.


Until MS does updates like Apple, consumers are going to be the ones that continue to get screwed.


How i love the"no locking over careers" setup in India, that means international variants which receive the ota updates before the careers branded variants. You pay for the device in one go, buying it directly from the maker, and the mobile careers only fight over call rates and data plans.

It's ridiculous how long it's taking some carriers to roll out an update that was ready before Christmas on the ATT 1020.


my sister got a 520, and it's not branded or something but still its not available, it sucks but I hope its the one that says "contry variant" "waiting for approval"... so if phones that have no carrier in the middle get this update so late, I can see how having a carrier can make things slower as well.

Dont know how much features this black update adds to 520, since I saw it doesnt have glance and such, but its always nice to be updated! hope 8.1 doesnt take many months to come to that 520!
520 just seems to get updates really late!

T Mobile not interested in this update to 521 I fight in tweeter for this I need support of others to be reality black for Lumia 521 people support me @piratasnake in tweeter come scream louder black update for us!!

wpcentral, there there is definitely something wrong with your comment code today, I can't reply to commenters, and quite a few comments didn't take today.
