Lumia Cyan allegedly showing up in Argentina

We're all waiting for the Lumia Cyan update with bated breath. It's going to bring a lot of cool new firmware features to the mix for those with a Lumia handset. Just an hour ago we learned of a provisional and pilot Cyan update for the Lumia 925 in Finland. Turns out they might not be the only region getting the update. Reports are coming in that users in Argentina are receiving Cyan.

Take this with a grain of salt since we can't verify it. But users in Argentina have claimed that the Lumia Cyan update has appeared on their Lumia 925 and Lumia 1020.

Take a moment to check your phone for updates by going into the settings -> phone update -> check for updates to see if you have anything available. Let us know in the comments whether or not you're seeing an update. Please do state your phone model and region.

  • Tried the update check on my L925 in USA... I know its not out yet but... Can't blame me for trying anyways... jejeje
  • Knowing at&t here in USA, my 1520 will get it by Christmas...ugh
  • +1
  • You forgot 2016... and butchered by the carrier.
  • Well we did get out first update in mid December so maybe it won't be that bad
  • Knowing AT&T..... That is why I went with the developer preview :)
  • Same here, same day it went live... And that's the day when I really started to enjoy WP
  • Sorry, but I´m in Argentina, and someone in my phone company told me that this is not true
  • Cyan is available in Argentina for unlocked 925. Check this page http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-latin-america/  
  • If at&t gets it by Christmas, T-Mobile should get it after the support for our phones ends, which means we won't get it.
  • Hope wee all will get it soon
  • Ok Retail User. Let's go to argentina update your phone and go home :D
  • Cyan available in India!!! No.. Not really..
  • You got me..
  • Need it badly. My 920's touch get unresponsive many times a day.
  • You're not alone, got this for the first time some days ago, hasn't happened since luckily
  • After the 2nd update. Faced it almost 5 times a day on average. :/
  • This my 920 locks a lot and it takes a reset to being it back. Last few days seen better but cyan will hopefully take care of that.
  • This happens to my Lumia 920 as well but i found that pressing the Windows Key a couple of times will make it start to working again.
  • My 1020 is always having problems. Long loading times, crashing apps, freezing apps and start screen, almost unusable when installing apps and super heating when running some apps
  • Hard reset your phone.
  • How do you do that and the beast way to do it ie, in settings or button pushes? Hours long does it usually take? How easy is it to get my apps and customizations back?
  • Very easy if you already have WP8.1 DP installed. Back up all your data and settings and after that reset your phone in settings. When all is done wait for all your apps to install again and most customizations should be back in place. Should problems with your phone persist after the reset, you should wait for Cyan and install it using Nokia Software Recovery Tool. That way all data on your phone memory will be wiped (and with it all possible software related problems) but you would have to start from scratch. 
  • Story of my life... My phone is more responsive to touch than my girlfriend. Which is saying a lot *forever alone*
  • Take your phone to the bed then.
  • That's why I have Cortana. :D
  • I don't want to live on this planet anymore
  • Wow. So that's why my Lumia wakes up to double tap?
  • Absolutely by design.
  • The battery port of your phone is swollen!
  • #ForeverAPhone
  • Unresponsiveness isn't seen on my L920 at usual times but when you're using it while it's being charged, ya it will get unresponsive sometimes and sometimes it will overact as if it's being touched by invisible fingers ( means that even if i don't touch the screen it will react on its own)
  • I've discovered it's caused by an issue with your charging cable moving/starting to fall out of the port. Remove the cable, lock the screen then unlock it. The screen should respond as normal. Now plug the cable back in and continue charging.
  • Same here. Need this update a lot. When someone calling they can only hear me if I turn on the loudspeaker. Well I only can speak with the loudspeaker for people to hear me on the other side. Also it's hard to charge my phone these days. Seems I have to find a sweet spot with the charger, otherwise it wont change. Getting frustrated in the morning when it turned out the whole night out was plugged but not charging. Hope cyan will fix this all. :( ..... ;-)
  • Read my comment above. Your touch issue is related to your charging port.
  • Those getting the Cyan update had the 8.1 DP installed or where you on 8.0?
  • common, it doesn't make a difference.
  • But his chat box it purple on my app screen so that would make him an epic #mmojokes
  • I wonder if you still think the same.
  • +625
  • I am running cyan and 8.1 on a dual sim Lumia 630 - developer preview disabled, but I just checked for updates anyway, and something is genuinely coming down, I shit you not. UK phone, sim free, carrier is giffgaff/O2
  • Which country?
  • He said UK in his comment.
  • UK...
  • To be fair, I added it to the comment as an edit after his post, I think. Currently looking at spinning cogz....
  • We have a single SIM at the office, didn't know they sell dual SIM in UK! Anyway hope this is Cortana coming your way :-) Do keep us posted
  • Any luck with update, also in UK but nothing there when I check. Posted via Windows Phone Central App
  • Nothing on l920 cv uk
  • Waiting for L720 in India!!!
  • MESSI!!!!
  • +620
  • +920 And Just got the battery extremely low message, that pop up is becoming my friend i swear.
  • Interesting. It can take as much time as it needs... I reverted back to 8.0 and enjoying the music experience and other features until the official release comes out. Hopefully it'll be worth the wait.
  • How do you live without a notification center? I had to get a new 1020 because my digitizer fused to my glass from the Louisiana heat and cracked. I had 8.0 for all of 4 hours and it felt so clunky and crowded compared to what I was used to. It was as graceful as a baby deer with three legs.
  • Jtbarton...I'm right there with you. I only updated my L520, but I left my L920 on 8.0. So glad I did. I gave my 520 away to a former iPhone user. He loves it. I decided to stick with 8.0 with hopes that things will get better.
  • Checked for it on my Lumia 810. Nothing... Oh wait lol
  • +810 :)
  • Cyan not in Netherlands (BeNeLux) yet!
    Lumia 820
  • I'm using Lumia Myth update in Atlantis.
  • You mean lumia magenta,
  • Way to go Blue :)
  • Do we need to disable dev preview to get cyan?
  • Wasn't the case with GDR3. Afaik, when the non- preview update is ready it will notify you and unenroll your phone.
  • I don't remember having to do that...
  • I think that even though developer preview enlists you for pre-release updates, it doesn't stop u from receiving full updates including the firmware, as I got GDR3 with developer preview still turned on... I've never had to turn it off :)
  • Just checked for updates on L1520, USA. Nothing yet!!! (eagerly awaiting)
  • Tried here in morocco with Lumia 1020, and it's still not out, maybe we're the last to have it :(
  • No cyan for Swedish Lumia.
  • Our office staff here in UK have checked for updates on their Nokia Lumia 925's so much that you can now tell where the CHECK FOR UPDATES button is on each screen! Have one next to me and will keep checking every 30mins, maybe 15mins and maybe even every 2mins...
  • A friend in Argentina have a Lumia 620 whit a ROM of Finland and he receive Cyan just some hours ago, he have the preview of 8.1 but whit amber, so he want to get Black, Oh Surprise!! He get Cyan instead Ö
  • in other words, flash your phones with the Finland ROM and you're in!
  • Well maybe that's a effective way of get Cyan :D
  • Is there a ROM for the 720?
  • If this is true, I think Microsoft is doing this to make all the people who don't get to do/have the US only stuff happy.
  • No cyan update in INDIA for 520
  • +520
  • I think Argentina are too happy with their today win so they making fool of others/themselves by rumour with Cyan update
  • LOL but it´s true, I´m from Argentina and Cyan is available
  • Because Argetina is White and whole World skin is rainbow of different colors. That's why, they got cyan and we not. Sad but true.
  • Are you ok Malcolm?
  • I thought you were from Gallifrey, did you lie to us again Doctor?
  • Remember the Doctor´s 1st rule
  • Oi you raggedy man!
  • Then congrats, which Phone?
  • 925 and 1020
  • Tengo el 1020 y me dice que esta actualizado.. Lo tenias con la 8.1 o te mandaste el verso de tu vida?
  • Debería si es LIBRE Country Variant
  • No.. Es de personal.. Pasame el código de producto, asi me lo bajo.. ;)
  • NOKIA LUMIA 1020 DE PERSONAL PERO CON FIRMWARE CV LTA: no hay ningún update disponible.
    #verso
  • tengo el 925 country variant rm-893_lta_argentina_302 y no hay nada.   nothing here.
  • Pas mal!
  • Lumia 920 on ATT US ...... uh, No update. DOH!
  • Nothing in France on 820
  • I just need my rogers 920 to get it
  • Apparently if you have the Nokia Lumia 520 or 920 and check for updates exactly every 5mins after 100 times Microsoft will automatically approve the Cyan update to your handset, take this with a grain of salt since we can't verify it at this stage :-p
  • +520
  • +920 (after 78 of manual check ups)
  • lol yes 78 may work for some, but seriously lets show that we are waiting eagerly by putting following post up with full public access on Twitter and Facebook: Waiting 4 @Microsoft @Nokia to release #Cyan #WP8.1 #WP81 #WindowsPhone8.1 #WindowsPhone81 #update for my #Microsoft #Lumia #Mobile #Handset This should get thei attention once we hit high numbers, need to spread the word and the more we check the more traffic Microsoft will see to know that we are here and waiting.
  • Wonderful :) waiting impatiently patiently ;)
  • L920 should be first for updates followed by the newest handsets. Early adopters need to get some benefits too.
  • Be thankful it's getting 8.1 even though it's a year and a half old phone.
  • Why should we old handset users be thankful? This is not android and plus some of us paid full price for our phones. Plus all wp 8 phones need to be updated - imagine the backlash if they were not updated, MS cannot afford another WP 7 "fiasco".
  • What are you blabbering about? All existing wp8 phones ARE getting 8.1, even the 520.
  • MS just did a "fiasco" with Nokia X+ and XL guys... They just launched these phones few months back and now they are not compatible with Nokia X2 platform... X+ and XL customers left in the cold... Any ways I am confused between X2 and Z10 as my secondary phone... Both will run droid apps missing on my WP...
  • Fiasco? As far as I know, cheap low-end Android phones don't get updates, no matter who manufactures them.
  • Bravo! I was with Android since Eclair and don't recall any low-end Android phone having been updated to the latest Android OS other than bug updates. Of course now I don't care anymore what happens in Android since I've completely switched to WP.
  • Nothing in Belgium aswell for the L1020
  • Screenshot or it didn't happen. Simple.
  • Sure, let me open Photoshop and you'll get your screenshot ;-o
  • Rumor was June 26th release date for Cyan and it's about to hit midnight in Finland. So maybe they really are rolling out the update.
  • All joking aside; personally belive if everyone starts flooding the social media inc Twitter and Facebook with hashtags something like: Waiting 4 @Microsoft @Nokia to release #Cyan #WP8.1 #WP81 #WindowsPhone8.1 #WindowsPhone81 #update for my #Microsoft #Lumia #Mobile #Handset   This should attract some attention globally
  • done
  • On the same day as Google I/O?
    Nope.
  • I have a feeling that this May not work...
  • Maybe not however worth shouting about it for product awareness :-) Not certain if all reports are authentic here as we have a SIM free Lumia 630 in the office in UK and there is no additional update on that though couple have mentioned there is!
  • Lumia 1520 SIM-FREE, Serbia, tried it @ 22:23 (local time, GMT+1) - nothing.
  • Cyan is Coming
  • Blue Snow?
  • just checked. Running 8.1 DP on a Lumia 1020 and no new updates.   Will keep checking. I am in the US. 
  • What controls update availability? Current physical phone location, region settings or country for which the phone was manufactured for? All three are different in my case :-)
  • Phone ROM and product code dictate the updates you get.  For example, if you had a phone that originated in the US and lived in say, Norway, you would have to flash a Norweigan ROM and match the product code in order to get updates when they are released in Norway - otherwise you will get them when they are released in the US. It's also worth noting that different networks have different product codes for the same handset, and a different code again for the Country Variant ROM (the ones factory unlocked handsets get).  If they don't match (eg you've flashed a CV ROM to a carrier handset and not changed the product code to match, then you most likely won't get anything at all until that is resolved).
  • Can you change the product code on a Lumia?
  • What of a handset purchased from a Nokia shop - what is its product code/country code like? Are they universal to a specific country?
  • depends on where the shop is located
  • Yes, of course. But are those factory unlocked phones from Nokia shops branded with the same codes within a country, or do they vary? I purchased in BKK.
  • Just checked and nothing on my 920 in the UK (unlocked).
  • Nothing here. Lumia 920, Italy
  • Malaysian Lumia 525 has nothing to say...
    Well, maybe only high-end guys should check things out, at least not less than 920.
    I don't believe it's gonna get released today or tomorrow for us.
  • Can you believe we still don't have Lumia Black in Mexico?
  • Deveras?? Que compañía eres?? Yo soy de telcel y no pude esperar a que la liberaran, asi que me volví "desarrollador" xD y actualize a la preview black y después a 8.1 :3 asi que ahora aunque quiera no la recibo, yo pensé que ya estaba :(
  • Igual, de telcel, pero no es eso. Simplemente los malditos aun no la liberan.
  • Keep checking everyone and the traffic may push Microsoft to deploy sooner globally
  • Nothing yet in Croatia, Lumia 1020.
  • In related news, Nigeria confirmed to get Lumia Cyan last.
  • Serious
  • Ba Dum Tss 
  • Boko Haram has probably blocked it.
  • LOL I hope not..i need this update yesterday +925
  • They probably bombed it OTA!! Nigerian here +720
  • I'll be waiting for Verizon for some time like I did for Black. 928
  • +928
  • No update for Australia L920
  • Nothing on Navifirm yet.. which would be a good indication of things moving..
  • Can you check please Finland and Argentina product codes for the 925.
  • nothing at all on navifirm yet other than for the 630, will update is firmware starts showing up there.
  • Tried changing region to Finland and Argentina on my T-Mobile 925. Nothing. It'd be nice to be able to sync my fitbit with my phone instead of waiting until I get home from work. Especially since I'm on my phone more than my laptop.
  • Changing the region will doesn't help you. It's independent on your product code if you will get the update earlier or later
  • Nothing here! Brasil - 920
  • de acordo com a diRma, o brasil deveria ser o primeiro a receber, pois o mundo todo está aqui... rsrsr
  • I'm in California and I got it!! Cyan is available for Verizon Lumia Icon!! But then as i was installing it then the worst nightmare happened and it stalled on the gears and *poof* I woke up..
  • lol Brill, I think we need some Hope here and allot of push to Microsoft therefore all the "Check for Updates" people are doing should build up enough traffic for Microsoft to take their finger out and push the button.
  • LOL, nice one!
  • Lumia Ruby Update confirmed in Atlantis
  • Please not again lol.  A whole thread turned into that kind of thing recently.  Daffodil... pumpkin.. zuccini...

  • What benefits does Cyan bring for the 1020...aside from OS stability? Any fancy camera related things?
  • Camra quality is improved. Continous Auto Focus is the best improvement and Live imaging SDK is finally available Now :)
  • But I thought that the continuous auto focus was not for the Lumia 1020, just 930, 1520.
  • Not available in Nigeria yet. Just checked on my 1020

  • HOLA EMILIO. ES LOGICO QUE NO TENGAS LUMIA CYAN AÚN. Tu Firmware es modificado por Personal. Y ellos se toman muuuuuucho tiempo para ensuciar el software con sus porquerías y limitaciones. Fijate en el siguiente enlace, es un sitio de Nokia donde detalla, por país y Operadora, la disponibilidad de las actualizaciones. http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/... Saludos. ---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- HELLO EMILIO. IS OK, EVEN NOT AVAILABLE LUMIA CYAN FROM YOUR OPERATOR. Firmware is modified by PERSONAL staff. And they take time to mess -with their crap and limitations- this OS software. Follow the next link  -is a Nokia site- is a list by country and operator whit availability of updates. http://www.nokia.com/global/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/...   Bye and sorry for my english ;)
  • Messi is behind this.
  • Messi had the update yesterday hahaha
