Update 1PM ET: Seems like Nokia is on the ball as Verizon has thrown the switch for the Lumia 822. Go check for your update now: Settings > Phone Update > Check for update. We can also confirm FM Radio and Group text is included.
Yesterday, Nokia updated their site from "waiting for approval" to "coming soon" and a tipster named WP8addict in our forums noted that indeed, it has been cleared by Verizon yesterday.
What’s more, it may be here as early as Friday, should his information prove to be accurate:
“Yes, GDR2 is coming.....should be OTA to all the 822's on 23rd Friday. Verizon finally waved the green flag (Oops my bad "RED" flag) for L822 Amber to NOKIA today.”
That’s great news for the 822 as that device doesn’t receive nearly as much attention as it should. But at least you now know you won’t be left out of the Amber-GDR2 fun.
Nokia’s Amber update will enable new features like flip to silence, Glance screen and improvements to the camera while Microsoft’s GDR2 update improves performance, fixes the Other storage issue, Data Sense (select devices) and other tidying up of the OS.
In typical fashion, Verizon should release a full changelog highlighting all the new features in the Lumia 822 when it goes live and we’ll be sure to bring that to you when it happens.
