  • Come on AT&T 1020. :(
  • I think WindowsCentral didn't stress this enough: if you have DP enabled, you'll probably won't see the update (I know this was the case with my L1520 HK variant and my wife's unlocked L820 O2 UK variant) so you'll first have to disable DP, and then look for the update. If it's available for your device you'll see it.
  • True
  • Thanks for the tip.
  • What words could one use to describe how lame it is that Developer Preview would interfere with this update? Turning that off allowed my phone to update right away. Magnum lame!
  • ISIS has Denim now, but my 830 on AT&T sits & waits without word.
  • Guys in ISIS can now take cool pictures and 2k videos of their missions, sounds like having a Lumia in US is ______________ ...for lack of a better word I left a blank space
  • lol
  • Hellooooo, AT&T? This smells like Lumia Amber all over again...
  • I bought a seller refurbished ATT Lumia 1020 from Ebay. It came with Denim update on it.
  • Comeon guys..canada!
  • Agreed. 520, 920, 1020, all on Robbers.
  • It's a Rogers thing not an MS thing.
  • I'm aware.
  • Wonder what's holding them back?
  • Think us Canadians will be the last from the looks of things, from my reads there hasn't been a single handset that's received it to date, I'm talking about those sold in Canada for our specific market.
  • Nah. Lumia Icon will be last. It's been almost last for just about everything.
  • Icon already has it.
  • I'll send that... Rogers, Bell, TELUS hurry up already.
  • Put fido too...and simpfh and that 830!
  • Seriously, I want the new Lumia cam for the 830....now!
  • Isn't Canada that place where most Winter Olympics happen. Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • The rollout is very slow, still waiting for the Philippines' to appear on the headline.
  • It's only been like 8 months since announcement right?
  • Yep, moving quite quickly actually. /s
  • Announced isn't released.
  • 1020 Philippines please!!!!
  • Still no Lumia 730 for India! Wtf!
  • Take a selfie.
  • Bazinga Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • Wish it was a toast for W10 rolling out to new phones :(
  • Wow. Height of optimism. The glass is half full. Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • Denim reach L1020 in Saudi Arabia, using it right now
  • Did the camera get a bit better in regards to speed and quality?
  • Nope... The camera is the same as before... #1020
  • No still the same
  • What is size of Lumia denim update?
  • Around 1.4GB as far as i remember while updating my 1020 in Dubai UAE
  • My denim size when downloading it was about 200-300 mb
  • My denim size is 32 inches Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • With Lumia 920 and Denim I wont be able to use Camera 5, right?
  • No. It's just for new hardware like 830, 930, 1520 etc. Sorry.
  • Thanks
  • Am I able to use hey cortana feature in 920?
  • No. Not even in some new phones like 830. I think it is just for Snapdragon 800 and beyond (930, 1520)
  • Wtf!!! What's in denim then (i am installing it now) this update is useless!
  • For Lumia 920 with dev preview it bring nothing. Without dev preview I think it brings folders.
  • :( ok thanks dude a lot. My update will finish!
  • All I want is Lumia camera on my at&t 830 sigh
  • By the time it reaches the Caribbean it will be lumia linen
  • Lmao
  • Haha haha... Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • Even here in Botswana, got my update
  • So for once everyone but the US is getting something.
  • Yes, you guys have been getting exclusives from Ms. Now now don't be greedy
  • ^^this Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • Everyone except the Americas, North & South, not just the US.
  • Great for everyone else but I'm feeling left out AT&T. (830). I know AT&T is the King in the U.S. when it comes to WP. I left a prior carrier for their poor attitude toward WP. (Sprint) While I don't believe I will be leaving AT&T because they support WP by far more than most other carriers, (t-mobile it's trying to catch up) now I'm getting a little antsy about our denim update. What's going on AT&T? Are you starting to drop the ball? Even pathetic Verizon has passed us with a denim update! Get it together AT&T!
  • Only on two of the phones. The high end Icon has yet to see the update.
  • Icon already has.
  • That would be false.  Just because the word Denim is appearing in extras+info, doesn't mean it's 100% there. (This was known way back when MS said some phones would be getting the name Denim applied, for a little while, before actually getting the features.) Lumia Icon is one of the few phones that is supposed to be able to use the new Lumia Camera (5) app.  However, upon launching the app, it tells me that to be able to use it, Denim must be installed.  Obviously, there is some discrepancy between what my phone is reporting, and what the camera thinks is actually there. http://www.windowsphonearea.com/lumia-denim-vs-lumia-cyan-camera-startup-comparison/
  • What? Icon already has Denim, WC posted that weeks ago. If you doesn't have yet, you should uncheck dev program and restart the phone, and try to search for an update.
  • I unchecked the box and deleted DP a couple weeks ago.
  • So you have a problem. Cause as I said, Icon already received Denim. Here: http://lumiaconversations.microsoft.com/2015/02/11/lumia-denim-now-rolli...
  • Verizon released Denim while back in the USA https://www.microsoft.com/en/mobile/support/software-update/wp8-software-update/availability-in-north-america/
  • Lumia 925 :(
  • UAE Lumia 920 too
  • 925 UAE rom got denim about a week's ago but it is so lagyyyy .... The phone has refresh rate issue when scrolling, the CPU hangs alot and my phone is unstable!!!!!! Doesn't start up when go to sleep and said resuming for 15 minutes!!!! Please fix this asap!!!!!
  • Keep calm and reset your phone.
  • had some lags after installation but after a restart its fine .Lumia 925 mea rom.I didnt find anything better nor worse after update since i was on latest OS version .Anyway it shows Lumia Cyan even after update : i think DP issue
  • You can add to the list Lumia 920 in Israel
  • I got denim for my L820 in Israel.
  • And in the UK only Three remains not having released...4 months and counting with no Netflix..
  • Wahhabi/ISIS should be left out of Denim!
  • And ignorant xenophobes should be left out of this comment field.
  • If being against Wahhabi-ISIS is ignorant xenophobia I'm guilty as charged. Gone.
  • Also in africa yes finaly
  • This is absolutely stupid, when Bahrain is getting update faster than the US or Canada, as if the operating system was developed in Bahrain! Don't feel hurt my Middle East friends, OK? Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for Android
  • One thing I'll say about MS is that they are really good at making terrific products, and keeping them updated.. That I have no complaints about.
  • Yep. They just need to pace their updates a tad little faster. Its a real good feeling knowing all Lumias will be eventually running Windows 10.
  • We can say that iDroid has never done that.
  • Got it on Lumia 1020 CV. Italy
  • You know you suck when Iraq has a phone update before you do. Good job Rogers.
  • Why? It's your country more import than Iraq? You seems superior in your comment.
  • Still need it in Canada! Lumia 830 on Rogers.
  • My turn... Lumia 1020 & 830 on Telus
  • It looks like the Denim update is rolling out in Asia Pacific for 820, 1020 too. I am in Vietnam and downloading the update. I'll confirm after next couple of minutes when my update is done.
  • Confirmation that my Lumia 820 has just updated to Denim. The update took about an hour to complete.
  • Why
  • Downloading here in Doha, Qatar...
  • Hey there. Doha is a beautiful City. The Villaggio Mall is crazy nice. The market downtown is really cool to explore.
  • Vodafone Australia just released denim, installed on my 930 running w10tp... All good except hey Cortana is disabled because of w10. Firmware 14219
  • And so far none for 920 in Brazil...while other series have had it for months...
  • Damn, still no update for the 925
  • finaly, its just a name update for me , am runing DP on 1020 , but none the less.
  • Probably you are mislead by that extras info bug. If your pfd is checked it shoes denim even tho you don't have it. Unchecked Pfd. Restart your fone and try for update Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • He means that 1020 doesn't get nothing new.
  • Brazil, anyone? My unlocked 930 is still on Cyan...
  • Why its not coming for Lumia 820
  • M in pakistan and I'm user of Lumia 820 device and its not upgrading to Lumia denim or 4g supported network....! M waiting for updates and plz fix it for 820 and 920 to in Pakistan...!
  • Try unchecked Pfd. Restart your fone and try to get the update. Might help not sure tho Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • It's just great that Iran, Irak, the entire middle east, Asia, and the rest of the world all get the Denim update while Canada, the US, and Latin America are still waiting. You'd think MS would try to make some kind of good impression in the US, because oh I dunno, it's an american company? Seems that "affordable flagship" means "Remember those features we demoed, and that you where supposed to have at launch, 6 months ago? Yeah, maybe you'll have them someday, when the rest of the world, and all the older phones have it. But not today."  
  • Totally freaking agree!!! I've been saying this sh*t for sometime now!!! WTF cant Microsoft issue out one fu**ing update for all win OS all in one day!!! And if not, the US deserves to be first in line!!!!
  • Perhaps not "first in line", so someone else can work out the initial kinks, but certainly not last. As long as you don't forget about Canada!
  • Perhaps if your people gave more respect that the 3% market share you guys would be treated a Lil better. Think how we feel not having Bing rewards/cortana Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • Hey, WE ARE THAT 3% SO DON'T BITCH ABOUT IT TO US.
  • Is it just me or Microsoft's windows phone OS isn't as popular as iOS or Android!??! I've loved it but I kind of feel like Microsoft is just loosing to the competition.
  • Why its not coming for Lumia 625 in india
  • Bala tuzha darwaza lock asnaar Posted via the Windows Phone Central App for QWBASIC :|
  • what makes country variants so complicated, that reaching 100% support within one continent cycle is not possible. I'm still waiting for CV NL938. Just about every country around me has the update for every Lumia. With the skip to Australia, Asia and now ramping up middle east, it feels like my country is simply off the radar.
  • But what about the off-center north?! (I have nothing against the middle east, but I love puns)
  • Jordanian 1520 was updated 10 days ago! Loving it so far :)
  • Lumia 925 :))))) for sure MS is gay
