AT&T announces that the Lumia 1520 Windows Phone 8.1 update is now live
Starting at 1PM ET today, AT&T has announced that the Lumia 1520 is cleared to receive the Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan update.
Owners of the Lumia 1520 can head into their Settings > Phone Update > Check for update to begin to receive the latest OS from Microsoft and new firmware to enable advanced features from Nokia.
AT&T did not comment on timelines for their other Lumia phones, though presumably they are not too far behind the Lumia 1520.
Our in house AT&T Lumia 1520 is not showing an update is live just yet, but our phone is running the Preview for Developers. It is not clear if we need to rollback the Preview in order to pull the update, though we will follow up shortly on that matter.

I LOVE the 1520! If you'd like to read my story of how I arrived at one of the BEST Windows Phones EVER read here!:
My Road to the Nokia Lumia 1520
Edit: Also, it is AT&Ts job to make money off of you, that is sort of the point in a company. Thief.
Weird, I know I mean, it fits but its kind of hard to sit down... So I guess a 1520 would probably snap if I sat down with it in my small pockets ;)
I sit through college all day with my phone in my pocket :) (I wear combats...) lol
it made me enter emailed verification code like on pc
WP 8.1 is fantastic on the 1520... My fitbit One even pair with my phone in the Device hub. Now waiting for official fitbit app...
Only then you'll get it
Only then you'll get the update
By the way, something about WP you should know. Each update already includes the firmware for devices as Microsoft approves the base hardware. That is to say, phones like the 52X-82X series as well as bogstandard WPs don't need any firmware other than for specific additions like cameras and such.
If you do work there : Xbox Music sucks ass.
The next in the list is 1020 and 925/920 so relax for some time
OS Version: 8.10.12400.899
Firmware Revision number: 1028.3562.1407.1001
No update yet.
I love my white 1520!
The time your wasting here by commenting and yelling,instead do this procedure
The time your wasting here by commenting and yelling,instead do this thing
1. Must roll back.
2. Use Nokia Recovery Tool. You have to download this to your computer, takes 1/2 hour. Actual rollback once phone detected, 5 minutes.
3. The is numbers will be the same, ignore that, you will be back on windows 8.
4. Look for update after filling in sign in, etc. I chose to do a clean install because I am going to hard reset if I don't have the chance after install is complete. I'm waiting now, actually, it's done restarting. Wow, I saw the blue flag like on the PC! Now its running through the 19 steps. So, I will have to do a hard reset when this is done to get my stuff which will be infinitely easier because either way its a MASSIVE waiting game, which we WP fans are good at.
Lumia 625: Worldwide
Lumia 925: Worldwide
Lumia 1520: Finland, India, Taiwan, USA When will the L1520 update go worldwide? It sure seems to be heading that way. And wasn't it supposed to go simultaneously with the update for L1020?
But I owned 1020, So still waiting.. :(
