Lumia 830 receives Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 in India, Lumia 1520, 1320 and 930 also updated

A host of Windows Phones have received updates in India. Several users in our forums are reporting that the Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2 is now rolling out to the Lumia 830, with the Lumia 930, Lumia 1320 and Lumia 1520 scoring firmware updates.

Those on the Lumia 830 are seeing an OS version update to 8.10.15148.160, with a firmware version of 02177.00000.15184.36003. The Lumia 1520's firmware version has been incremented to 02540.00019.15236.45004. With the update, it looks like a few users are able to see 4G connection speeds for cellular connectivity for the Lumia 1520 and the Lumia 930.

Both devices come with LTE bands that should theoretically work with Airtel's 1800MHz or 2100MHz frequency, although the rollout of 4G services is still in its nascent stages. Hyderabad is one such city where Airtel has commenced 4G services, and as it so happens we have a Lumia 930 with us. We'll let you know if the phone is able to connect to the carrier's 4G network in the city later this week. Until then, let us know if you're seeing any other improvements in the comments.

  • For 730?
  • +1
  • I have it on my 735, actually, I DID have it on my 735. Windows 10 Mobile now lol
  • hahahaha no update.!! cry!!  
  • I'm also waiting for it..
  • Unfortunately Lumia 638 didn't get even Denim Update, and never going to too
  • I think MS forgotten our model...
  • When in UK - had to because so many say India!
  • For 720..? :)
  • Guys, check as fast as you can!!! I have spotted a firmware update using windows recovery tool. Maybe, it's the gdr2 update for our phone. I am using Lumia 730    
  • Other devices? X20 series?
  • Looks like its still a dream
  • They will get eventually. Maybe after win10 mobile
  • You know you shouldn't be worried about this? Windows 10 has ALL the features of Update 2. Wait for that instead, which is more likely to come to all Windows Phones than Update 2.
  • Win10 mobile likely to be launched in late Sept.- Early Oct. & for older devices it can even take as much time as early 2016. So i cant wait that long rather i would be happy with update 2 in the meanwhile.
  • Well, if it takes them as long to release W10M then people in India should actually wait for W11 instead. 
  • There won't be a windows 11.. This is the last one, and will receive updates.
  • Received the update for my 920 (India). Running on 4G now 8)
  • Airtel 4g Is working for you ? I have Lumia 920 running Windows 10 if 4g is running in windows 8.1 i will happily downgrade :P Please confirm and can u share a snapshot .
  • Yep, 4G is working on my 920. :) 
  • Yay, wait I got an update this morning, which I don't think it's an update 2. What's 1320's update 2 version# btw?
  • Lumia 1320 just scored fw update. Not an OS update.. (for those who are wondering)
  • Does the update enable 4G for the 1320? or is it not capabale hardware wise?
  • 4G is enabled.. I thought there was no 4g in 1320! Glad you asked..
  • Confirming 1320 got 4G option in india after update. But this update is not update 2 for 1320. Any thing else new?
  • No noticeable difference..
  • Lumia 1320 RM994 model, has 4g already, but somehow during last firmware update it was gone and now it is back.
  • What this update includes?
  • I think the biggest changes are the ordered settings screen and Bluetooth keyboard capability. I never managed to get this for my unlocked 1020 in the UK, but have moved onto Windows 10 Mobile Insider Builds now, so won't be going back
  • A better settings list, control permission list of camera microphone location etc, pin individual settings to the start menu and app list at the bottom of start menu Instead of the arrow.
  • Settings list is OK...not much to add here Control of permission lists: in short this is a joke... just an illusion that you can control anything, when in reality its just useless. For some unknown reason, the location is not among the restrictable permissions... so all the apps can still grab your location. Or your identity info (your Windows account email address) etc. Its a big illusion, so now MSFT can reference to that they provided app permissions, when in fact its a half-baked crap, not a completel solution Pin individual settings: yes, its great, but all of them use the same generic gears icon. So if you dont use the biggest live tile that gives text, you cannot distinguish among the pinned settings just by looking at the icon. Half-baked crap function. App list at the bottom: do people really consider this a big thing: MSFT replaced the --> arrow with the word: "All apps -->" and people register this as a"feature"? Holy crap...
  • I hear you though was a mouth full we all no it's a placeholder for Windows 10 mobile it windows phone 8.1 update 2 after all
  • What drugs were you on, when you wrote that comment?
  • MKV support is also added
  • Yes, literally MKV container is supported now, its "just" the common warez audio codecs are missing (like AC3) --> so the result is still the same: cannot play video. But yes, MKV is supported now! /s
  • Wen in India...
    -
    Oh, wait...
  • Now in India!
  • Satya.meva jayathe! Hyderabad India rocks!!
  • For those who are wondering this doesn't have to do anything with Satya Nadella
  • :'D bwahahaha!
  • My 1520 would be mad but in the preview!
  • Got one update for Lumia 925, but it seems only 4G option has got enabled. Doesn't seem to be Update 2
  • +1520
  • Downloading....
  • Ohhhh nice news Microsoft...
  • You know what..even 920 is getting an update. Downloading it now!
  • It just says 'Lumia update for windows phone'
  • And its just 68MB in Lumia 1320
  • Just enabled and set 4G as the default mobile setting. Wonder what's the impact on the battery with this setting.
    Also noticed that firmware version got upgraded from 3051.500009.1451.1009 to 3051.500009.1451.1010 Posted via the Windows Central App for Android
  • Is 4G enabling option available for l1320 ??
  • Not sure about 1320, but on my L930, 4G drains battery a lot faster versus 3G.
  • Yup 4G option is now live in my Lumia 1320
  • Only in India?
  • jelly bruh? :p
  • Nope, many regions got it already. I have a Hong Kong varient 930 (000-HK) in India, got the update months ago.
  • When it's available for L730??
  • Alright...! My 930 has an update...I've been waiting for 4G for a while now...thought we would have to wait until win 10 but this is great...! :D
  • Me too was waiting for it ..here in Chennai we have free promotional upgrade to 4G with same 3G plan price ..time to visit the Airtel store now!!
  • Yup am in chennai too...already got the 4g sim a month back... :)
  • AirTel offers the same in Noida too, but wasn't 4G option already available before this update? Or maybe I have it because I'm running a HK variant and not Indian?
  • My 625, India Variant, got this 4G option months back, I even reported it to WC, but they never pick my articles :/
  • Indian variant L930 got 4G option only with this update i belive. i got the 4G sim for my L930 its super fast!!
  • Yes. There is no other change than 4G enabled.
  • Some bugs with photos sharing function. Phone hangs for 5-6 seconds when u try sharing/uploading a pic via an app. Irritating
  • Dhalsim gets the update and I dont?! WTH!
  • When for others????
  • Just in India ?
  • My Lumia 920 also got an update in India but it has got just 4G option, its not Windows Phone 8.1 Update 2. I'm still on 8.1
  • Are you on developers preview 8.1? Coz my 920 used to show the option for 4G while on dev preview but the moment I switched to Lumia Denim the option is not there anymore.
  • I had it on my 625 too since dev prev's time, but it was still there after upgrading to Denim
  • I have this update on my UK Lumia 830 and I can see bigger battery drain than before. Anybody the same problem?
  • Give it a few days it will settle down for sure.
  • yes, same problem. idle battery drain is about double.
  • I just got this update on my MS Lumia 640 here is Australia. ​
  • Lol.. 640 comes with update 2 preinstalled
  • My Lumia 640 also got updated today with a firmware update saying Lumia Update and it is not update 2, as update 2 was pre installed. But I can't figure out what today's update brought for Lumia 640
  • How about Canada? Rm-985? :(
  • I second that, what about us eh!
  • Why nobody care about us? We're right next to US... :(
  • The US 830 hasn't even updated yet
  • Living in Canada is like living in an apartment above a penthouse that has a constant fucking awesome party your not invited to.
  • Here in U.S. we are in the same boat! Can't speak for any unlocked 830 owners here, but all 830 owners with AT&T are still waiting for update 2.I guess AT&T is not going to issue an update 2 until Windows 10 and then bundle the updates together. FAIL on this one AT&T!!
  • The AT&T Lumia 830 isn't even listed on Microsoft's software availability page anymore. Out of sight out of mind! https://www.microsoft.com/en/mobile/support/software-update/wp8-software... States Of America
  • Oddly enough I was at the Microsoft store recently and all the Canadian 830s were running this latest update. Chances are it'll be here soon.
  • if had field test you can use 4g thats available in vietnum firmware only (1520)
  • Not yet for unlocked Lumia 930 here in UK.
  • I just restored my UK unlocked with the recovery tool and if gave me the updated firmware 15235.40007, if your in a rush to get it

  • Meanwhile...... In the USA..... Where the hell are you AT&T!!!! Still no denim, and no word on gdr2 either! Fricken contract!
  • I just got done talking to ATT support again; no news about gdr2/denim for us.  I think we have to accept that they've abandoned this phone already.  Getting ready to say f'it and install win10 on it.
  • While I'm glad 8.1.2 has become available in India, it pretty much epitomizes the state of WP - extremely poor record of users receiving updates in a timely fashion.  This needs to change (Along with top tier hardware) for WP to even have a chance of increasing marketshare.
  • Received an update today lumia 920 India but its not update 2 it just changed my highest connection to 4G.

  • It seems like you are in insider preview and I'm not sure how to revert back from it. But I have read like people who gets in to insider preview gets 4G option in settings automatically.
  • Few hours ago updated 925 & 1020, both now showing 4G option. Am in India.
  • Why is this not available through the Dev Preview? My poor 810 is still on Update 1.
  • This is just an update to increase the Data Connection to 4G
  • Available for 920 as well
  • 830 India update done

  • I'm using Lumia 1520 & I've got 4g connectivity but no changes in settings view..
  • Oh no... Update 2... I had it and I had to go back to update 1. MKV support - useless for me, settings - after first setting I don't have many reasons to go to settings. BUT - text rendering, a basic thing is horrible on update 2! I will stay on update 1 until I will have W10

  • I'm not sure whether it'll work or not. Do uncheck the enable preview for developers option in the preview for developers app n then check for updates. Update came for me like that. Maybe a coincidence too. Not sure. Sorry if I'm wrong. In India
  • Just updated Lumia 1520. only 4G connection shown. no major changes though. the update is not the Windows 8.1 GDR 2 update. Waiting for more releases. will GDR2 will be released for  this device, or it will straight go for windows 10 updates

Pls reply 1320 users
  • I got my 1520 updated..
  • Same problem with me also, they told me to take it to airtel shop they will fix the problem.
  • what will airtel shop do?
  • It wont work as Airtel 4g is in band of 2300,which is not supported by 1520
  • 620?
  • i searched for mobile networks manually. it shows various networks like airtel,aircel,vodafone,etc. in that it shows airtel 2g,3g. there is no 4g.. so this means there is no 4g network from airtel. I am a 1320 user with airtel network from chennai. I have 4g sim activated. can anyone please tell me why i am not getting 4G network in chennai?
  • As per i know they have it only in 2/3 cities only. If your city is one of them don't forget to check if you stay under 4G coverage or not.
  • Buy 4g compactable sim from Airtel shop..
  • I got update for Lumia 920 , but don't know for what?
