T-Mobile announces Lumia 925 Windows Phone 8.1 update

Update 3: The 8.1 update is live as our T-Mobile Lumia 925 now has Lumia Cyan (and it is also enrolled in the Preview for Developers program)

It looks like T-Mobile US is getting ready to unveil finally the Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan update for its venerable Lumia 925.

Evidence comes from T-Mobile's support forums, which detailed the over-the-air update. However, that page has since reverted and despite an earlier claim, we have not had an update for our Lumia 925s. It looks like T-Mobile may have jumped the gun a bit early, although we have all the details.

In a screenshot sent to us, the original T-Mobile page claimed the following:

"Beginning October 28, the Lumia 925 received a software update to Windows Phone 8.1 / Software version 01061.00074.14391.37104. This update provides features and improvements: Windows Phone 8.1 and Inflight Texting support."

The update comes in at 267 MB.

As of 3PM ET, none of our T-Mobile Lumia 925s has received an update, and the support page has since returned to the original version from February 20. However, due to the amount of detail present in the original posting from the support forums, it should be clear that this update with Windows Phone 8.1 and Lumia Cyan is very, very close. Indeed, a few users are reporting updates coming in, meaning this could be the start of the update.

Stay tuned, as Windows Central will let you know if the update is finally available.

  • My 925 is ready, but nothing is showing up yet. Soon...™ Gotta say I resent the 'venerable' remark; this thing has a lot of life left in it! Excited to finally have Cyan on this sucker. 
  • Why? The Lumia 925 is a very old phone by tech standards and is still pretty nice so, yes, it is venerable.   Venerable: Command respect because of great age or impressive dignity.
  • That's true, I guess I forgot about the respect thing. Guess I also should have appended a /s on the end since I didn't mean it seriously at all.  When did the 925 come out, anyways?
  • Little bit more than 1 year ago. Not sure what would be old about the 925?!
  • ^this. The 925 is an impressive phone, even by today's standards.  I think it looks nicer then the much newer iPhone6 models.
  • "Venerable" is a compliment. Sheesh people here are sensitive.
  • It is available...I got it
  • Not looking back, ditched the Icon for a Note 4, goodbye WP forever.  Hard to support a platform with 1 developer and flipboard that doesn't flip or work very well after waiting so long.  Good luck, you'll need it.
  • Ok. Thanks for playing. Bye Bye.
  • I want the Cyan update for the Lumia 521.
  • Me too
  • Me too
  • You should have said me three
  • Me 4
  • and me
  • Not me.
  • +521
  • Same here!
  • +521
  • Don't forget me!
  • It's just the most popular Windows Phone T-Mobile has ever had. No rush.
  • Thank you VerizonWireless for being dead last to release Windows Phone 8.1 update to ANY device.
  • Since they dropped the icon I can't see them updating anything honestly. The M8 already has 8.1 right?
  • It skips right on to 8.1 Update 1.
  • T-Mobile dropped the Lumia 925 from their web sites so there still might be hope for you yet.
  • Every T-Mobile I've been in still has the 925 on display. They are probably running out of them though, hence the reason why it's removed from their website. Expansys sells the 925 for $319, but it was on sale for around $250. It's a very attractive phone, and I would love to have one. The Lumia 830 is $400 at Expansys, and I still think they need to lower the price on that. The 1520 is $460, and the 930 is $480, and both of those phones smoke the 830. If I was someone who was looking to pick one of the 830's up, I would save up another $50 or $75 dollars  and get the 930/1520.
  • You know you're screwed when T Mobile beats you to updates.
  • Funny but yeah, we're screwed:(
  • Lol lowkey
  • Better late than not coming at all.
  • There's still Sprint to beat them to it ...
  • Sprint doesn't sell Nokia phones. So the Cyan update is irrelavant.
  • Don't expect any update from Verizon. Plain and simple. God bless pd program in this case. Seems MS got something right.
  • Only until the firmware becomes outdated
  • It already is.
  • I don't even care about the update anymore.. Its been out on other carriers for months.. T-mobile always lags it so bad. I think I might end up switching companies.
  • I got Lumia cyan for 925 for US T-mobile right now
  • They're still tied with Sprint.
  • Verizon? Verizon?
  • Ain't gonna happen.....courtesy of Shadowgun...
  • bueller?
  • Not sure about bueller.
  • Bueller, Bueller, ...
    Umm... My friends sisters brothers girl friend told this kid who knows who knows this guy that he passed out at '21 Flavors' last night. Evidently is pretty serious.
    Thank you Simone.
    No problem whatsoever.
    Fry, Fry... Fry...
  • Nothing is accidentaly! These are awesome news for 925 owners. I think it's about time for HTC to sound off, we're still awaiting.
  • Put yourself in a coma cause its not gonna happen...
  • Since my 925 is running 8.1 via developer preview, I guess I'll have to wait for Microsoft to release an update that includes Cyan... Am I right?
  • Don't think so. Believe once tmobile pushes it, you be able to get it.
  • I hope so...Tmobile, Dev Preview here too.
     
  • Me too!! Hope this gives us Cyan!?!?
  • Damn nothing so far :/
  • if its an international or custom rom model you should be able to update it now, microsoft/ nokia and some HTC models have been updating cyan firmware update since it was premiered, many countries have it now. everyone else is either waiting or updated to the developers verison now (not sure they are actually going to update models with the preview yet or for awhile though its been noted in a couple of articles).  if its a US model like mine (i tried to update it to cyan over sea's and came out with a big fat 0 result with a different sim card company) we just have to wait until our carriers decide to release it depending on the go ahead from approval. knowing microsoft if they do release it for developers preview it may be alot longer than our carriers will take. 
  • Is your last name love? Mine is and rare is it I come across it.
  • my maiden name is yes :) it is rare i found 2 other in texas though as well though 
  • Umm HTC? Did I read that right? The firmware update is for Nokia Lumia brand phones. My head hurts from that comment.
  • No, because the T-Mobile update will supercede it because it has firmware updates to make it smoother as well as Cyan. But you will continue to get whatever preview updates Microsoft continues to bump out.
  • I am on T-mobile Lumia 925 on Dev Preview and just got the Cyan update from T-mobile about 10 minutes ago.
  • I am running DP and just did a "check for updates". Next thing I know, it says "update ready to install", woohoo!
  • Ok Verizon, now it's your turn!
  • Probably not that's why I left my Icon for a 1520.
  • Me too!
  • Loool I feel sorry for you guys!!! This contract thing and waiting for carriers to push updates sucks!!
    Country variant FTW!!!!!
  • Lol Verizon is behind tmo. Lol
  • I will sell my lumia icon and purchase the 930 xD this is really disappointing X.X
  • Now you can all stop bitching about it.
  • Well, it's one less thing to bitch about for us t mobile users. I'm still really shocked about this though. I would have bet money that t mobile would be last again.
  • Downloaded the update and it is ready to install
  • Figures this comes out the day I receive my 1520.3!! Oh well, anyone wanna buy my T-Mobile 925?
  • How much, pm me
  • No thanks but I'll buy your 1520 and give you my 920 for free...i say $200.
  • Lol
  • No worries; the 1520 is superior in every way... Enjoy! :-)
  • Yes, the 1520 is king. No other phone has every feature. Tired of girls calling it a phablet. It is a phone. Period.
  • Wouldn't trade my 32gb 925 for anything except a 935... Specially not for a phablet
  • I might be interested. Depending on the price for sure.
  • I have an 810... So yes.
  • You expect a sudden interest from TMO on this phone or something?  I own one too.  Accept the reality and move on.  Live with it or buy another phone.  Put on PforD 8.1 and other than WFC, it's all the phone I need. But I need WFC so I went to 925, what a nightmare.    
  • Yes, I just shattered my 925 screen this weeked... what kind of shape, and for how much?  
  • I'm just waiting on Verizon till my fitbit actually works.
  • Nice to know. Now the earth can continue with its orbit...
  • I can finally breath again!thank you!!!!
  • Do they have to restore their phones in order to get the update or not if on the Developer Preview version?
  • no, they shouldn't. Then again, I am on the Preview and do not have the update.
  • Keep us posted. Same here. MA, USA.
  • Receiving.
  • Downloading......
  • No.
  • On the PfD program and just finished receiving Cyan and a follow-up updates. Had to wait too long for this T-mobile. I will always buy an unlocked phone in the future.
  • They need a 1520, 930 or HTC one
  • They're getting the m8.
  • Verizon you suck!!!!
  • VZW is only concerned about their Droids
  • Exterminate... Windows phone.
  • I'm not even certain of that. Android is updated last on Verizon too. The only phone they don't screw up is the iphone.
     
  • Easy now, Verizon just announced the Droid Turbo earlier today.  You certainly can't expect them to do two things in a single day. ;)   The irony of using the words Verizon and Turbo in the same sentence...  Anyway, good news for t-mo users.
  • That there is funny, turbo and Verizon...
  • Turbo refers to the speed at which they take your money.  Service is in molasses mode.
  • Funny!
  • Yup, Verizon is the worst.
  • Sad, but true
  • Checking checking checking.. no update yet
  • Veriz......zzzzzzzzz. My Icon is willing and waiting.
  • That's what she said...
  • Sure is nice to have someone offer their 2 cents on every single comment.
  • I see your name quit a bit too!
  • Fairly recent Lumia 925 user, after having a Samsung Omnia 7, a Lumia 800 and a Lumia 820. Lovely device. Bought it with 8.1 already, in Spain.
  • When is T-Mobile releasing the M8. The coming soon page has been that for weeks.
  • I heard the middle of November
  • Hopefully, this means the 521 Cyan update is near.
  • Waiting on Verizon too... Got cobwebs in my armpits! Will we get denim or no? I'm due for an upgrade next month... Will the HTC one m8 WP get denim? Any word? 928 user.
  • Cobwebs in my armpits. Holy crap you made my day, lol....
  • Glad to help! We all need to laugh! Cheers to all!
  • Dude...these updates are for firmware on (Nokia/MSFT) Lumia devices (Lumia Amber, Lumia Black, Lumia Cyan, Lumia Denim). HTC devices are not Lumias.
  • I was considering the HTC phone for my upgrade, just don't want to get something that doesn't get anymore updates! Thanks for the info!
  • Just because Nokia/Microsoft won't update the HTC m8 doesn't mean that HTC won't update it.
  • No both Cyan and Denim are Nokia/Microsoft Lumia exclusive names for firmware. In a way the m8 ships with the HTC equivalent of Denim though. Its already running update 1.
     
  • And now the chants for Denim will start..... :)
  • Denim, Denim, DENIM.
  • Just checked for updates, downloading and installing now (official T-Mobile 925). No details of what is in the update (8.1? Cyan? Tribbles?).
  • Looks like it may be an interim update. Still a version of 8.0..., but to allow an easier update to 8.1. I will post a screenshot when the 5-10 minute cycle is complete.
  • I can confirm 100% that I now officially have WP 8.1 and Cyan on T-Mobile 925 in Los Angeles. I'll post some screenshots shortly. Of note, I had 16 application upgrades after the update, so check those.
  • I've sent Daniel Rubino the screenshots, so hopefully he can update the article.
  • Here is the first update. It takes a bit less that the actual 8.1 update. Edit: it seems the comments do not display images on Windows Phone Central, dispite them being visible in my comment box window.  
  • I received the update in two parts:  Small update to get ready for 8.1 8.1 update
  • Sounds like you weren't on Dev Preview, correct? You were running 8.0?
     
  • Correct, I was running 8.0.
  • I was on Dev Preview 8.1.1 and boy did it take a while lol It did the smaller update but because I had 8.1 already installed idk the phone acted up then a pop up for the second update it came with cyan it re-installed 8.1 and in the same update cycle took me back up to 8.1.1 build 14192, it basically installed the three previous 8.1 builds at once. After a restart the phone is running amazing. I knew Cyan would help, it finally feels like 8.0 stability and smooth
  • I'd really love to have 8.1.1, mainly for the tile groups. I wonder if updating to this through Developers Preview now that I have WP 8.1 would keep the T-Mobile apps like Wi-Fi Calling and Visual Voicemail operational? So far I am loving 8.1. The extra row of tiles is awesome, and I'm liking the notification/action center more than I expected to. Having images behind transparent live tiles not only makes WP 8 and earlier look massively dated by comparison, it does the same to the grid of icons on iOS and Android.
  • Oh man WP 8.1.1 is even better! Lol everything just feels optimized at this point. IE is alot more stable for me than it was on initial build of 8.1 I can confirm to you that the visual voicemail works on Dev Preview 8.1.1 however go to the forums and see if someone who uses Wifi Calling is also working with Dev Preview and Cyan. I believe comments above us, someone said the cyan + Dev Preview fixed their messaging while on Wifi calling? Idk make sure lol
  • Same here...TMO L925 user in CT, saw the story that Cyan was coming soon and just tried checking for an update just for fun.  To my surprise it started downloading the first update and my data is currently migrating.   Will update once/if Cyan starts downloading.   And for full disclosure this phone at one time did run the Dev preview, but I used Nokia Care suite to downgrade it back to last firmware package for the TMO L925, which would have been Nokia Black.
  • And Verizon?
  • nope which is why I left for AT&T.
  • Tmobile need to announce the HTC m8 WP release date
  • Congrats to the 925 owners yall deserve the update. Happy for you all.
  • No update here yet.  There shouldn't be any issues if we're running DP, right?
  • Damn, your carriers are slow over there...! :-/
  • They are on life support....
  • Hwy guys I'm already downloading the update. Happy me
  • Shout outs to the 1520.3 that's unlocked, carrier free, and SCREAMING on tmobiles network! Lols. I'm never buying a phone from a carrier again! I've been on 8.1 since May, cyan since it First came out! 1520.3 Master Race Owns you ALL
  • I fairness our 1520.3's were updated after AT&T, but at least it was still reasonable. Updating this long after the fact is not reasonable.
  • Screw Verizon and their dead silence on the whole Cyan mess
  • I can give this enough ++++++
  • I gave up on Verizon and my 928 and Icon. I now have Cyan on my new 1520.3 on AT&T.
  • Hey WPC so if the 925 is just a favorite why don't you sell its screen protector?
  • I don't even care anymore. Using Tmo unlocked 925...
  • Does that mean you already have 8.1?  I have been thinking about getting my wife's 925 unlock, but I don't know what that will mean for updates.  I'm thinking about going to cricket.  Will updates still be pushed out by t-mobile or cricket?
  • I have an unlocked T-Mobile 925 that I'm currently using on Cricket.  I have the Developer Preview and have been running 8.1 for months now.  I just got the update and my phone is still running 8.1 but now with Cyan. So even though I'm not on T-Mobile anymore, I'm still getting the push (which had to have come from T-Mobile)
  • Cricket here I come. Thanks. ​
  • Downloading and hopefully installing Lumia 925 8.1 update at this moment. Finally.
  • YESSSS FINALLYYYYYY THE TIME IS UPON US
  • Love the enthusiasm...
  • Lol ohh I'm on 8.1.1 already But i have been dying for the Cyan firmware. And now my two friends can experience cortana and notification center :)
  • I truly understand, yes, I do!
  • Bravo for T mobile!
  • Yes! I just bought a 925 on eBay and its arriving tomorrow! Couldn't be happier
  • finally, do we still have to uninstall developers preview first? can someone tell me? thanx in advance
  • No, it will install on a PfD phone (it did on mine, anyways).
  • yeah I got it automatically thanx...
  • Verizon is giving MS the middle finger and saying F u MS
  • Seems like a gooed enough reason to give that very same finger back to verizon.
  • Yup I totally agree bro
  • Unfortunately , Verizon is giving us, the customer, the finger, not MS
  • Relying on carriers for updates is such an antiquated method.  If it's one thing Apple has gotten right, it's their method of updates and backup/restoring.  Android is such a mess.  Microsoft is somewhere in the middle.    
  •  Aug. 3 2015, agreed I finally also got the Denimupdate from tmo, want to see wm 10 asap
  • WOW, T-mobile the carrier who hates their WP customers beat Verizon who also hates them but has more options to an update.
  • I wish they had announced the 930 instead. Or at least 830. And then I would have considered switching from AT&T.
  • T-Mobile getting updates before Verizon? What about Verizon? When is it Verizons turn?
  • Never.  VZW has forgotten it has ever sold a Windows phone.
  • So are you guys going to unlock my thread now? Did say awhile back that T-Mobile was testing the revised update, and that they were going to release late october-mid November lol
  • Praise God!
  • *sigh* VERIZON
  • Finally
  • Got to admit that, for once, EE UK were on the case and I've been lucky to have both 8.1 and Cyan since July (925).
  • I just got it! Hallelujah!
  • Mine is downloading the update! Woo-hoo!
  • It looks like my L925 is updating to something. Hope it's 8.1 and Cyan...
  • Finally!!!
  • Awesomeness!
  • My 925 on T-Mobile downloaded a not-quite-Cyan update about an hour ago, and is finishing up the Cyan update now. It's time.
  • Prepping to install now, got to be the update since I already have the latest Dev Preview version. Yeah!!
  • Downloading updates 16%...
  • My L925 is downloading the (or, an...?) update right now. 
  • Ok, I got Cyan. But I just got prompted for another update. 
  • I received three Developer Preview updates after installing Cyan.  Microsoft must have been holding them back.
  • After updating to Cyan I also got another DP update.  Likely to bring it back to 8.1.1 after Cyan brought it down to 8.1
  • Looks like it finished updating and it is now running Lumia Cyan. Sweet!!
  • Two weeks after I install another ROM for Cyan, this comes out. Oh well. :)
  • Downloaded and running!
  • I'm so glad I left Verizon for AT&T. My 1520 has Cyan already.
  • Checked update just now and it's downloading something.... L925 - Developer Preview Tmobile Seattle, WA
  • Updating now. In New York.
  • I have 8.1 DP and just updated to cyan.
  • T-Mobile must have heard me selling one of my friends on the Galaxy Note 4. I replaced my HTC One M8 with it hoping T-Mobile will get the One M8 for Windows. Samsung is supposed to issue a Qi charging plate for the Note 4, so my investment there won't be wasted. I'm just not confident of getting a flagship Lumia before the end of next year at the earliest. The One is a beast when it comes to music and that is what I mainly use my Luma for anyway, so between the Note 4 and the 1M84Win I should be good. Of course, if Cyan and 8.1 are convincing on my L925, I may just rock that til it breaks... EDIT I am in the west in Nevada if anybody is monitoring what regions appear to be updating.
  • Finally I will get to play with Cortana!
  • Just got an update of 105mb. Downloading now. Fingers crossed. Update: Cyan loaded up. Sweet! Also got another dev OS update. Can't remember the numbers.
  • Getting it now and I am on developer preview.
  • Just updated to Cyan with DP installed as well. 
  • And the 810 falls further behind.
  • FINALLY!!!!!!!!!YES!!!!!!!!!!!
  • Awesome! I'm now running cyan.
  • With T-Mobile here in Utah and just forced the updated on my 925. I'm on the developers preview also and updated like a charm.
  • LOL
  • Update is downloading on my phone as we speak. Whoo!!!
  • Sweet i just mine updated. Bout freakin time Edit: Update done and it's now on denim way to go tmo
  • You may want to double check that unless you are not talking about the L925...
  • http://1drv.ms/1tf7Yn3 screenshot
  • A shot of the Lumia 925 with this on its screen?
  • http://1drv.ms/1FTJy9p here you go
  • There was an article the other week that said an update to Extras+Info was resulting in it saying on phones that they were now updated to Denim. Not the case, though. It's really running Cyan.
  • Mine updated to Lumia cyan just now. Lumia 925, tmobile. Central FL, USA.
  • I just updated my TMO 925 to Cyan...went off without a hitch.  Will be nice to have wi-fi calling back, as well as texting from the airplane.  Seattle here...
  • On TMobile with Lumia 925. Have dev preview and just downloaded and installed CYAN
  • In Missouri. Now if I can just remember why I wanted Cyan so badly...
  • I want to upgrade from the 521 to the 925 so bad but the 925 is pretty pricey
  • Check eBay. I got mines for 155
  • Just got my update to Cyan - T-Mobile, Lumia 925
  • Yay, I just got it! I figured T-Mo would wait til 12/31 to release it, lol
  • Got the update works great thanks Microsoft and Tmobil
  • Yay, I get cyan on my 925 the day before it's replacement arrives lol   Oh well, from what I've read the 925 gets none of the new cyan features anyway.. so just a stability patch i guess
  • YES. SWEET MOTHER OF GOD YES. I THOUGHT IT WOULD NEVER COME.
  • Got it officially as of 4pm MST. Lumia Cyan 8.1. ^_^
  • Just finished installing the update on my 925.
  • Im on denim not cyan, can anyone else confirm? If not I feel extra super duper special....makes me wish I had my 1520 still lol
  • I assumed you were in the USA, another poster says his 925 is on Denim. T-Mobile USA is handing out Cyan today.
  • Well whaddaya know... I got something that claims to be WP 8.1... And.....3 hours of spinning gears...fantastic......... -_-
  • Texting over Wi-Fi calling works again thanks to this update. Yes!!
  • THANK YOU T-MO!
  • Received the update here. Not sure if its the preview for developers update, but my extras and info is saying Lumia denim now.
    Also, I have a problem that I got after installing the preview for developer's update. I can't hear any ringing or people talking through the earpiece. I must use either the speaker or the bluetooth headset. I thought it would be fixed by the original update when it comes out, but its still there.
    Anyone who could help me with that?
  • working here as well. money. so catching up with the 90's.
  • I don't understand. I'm a Dutch T-Mobile customer and my 925 is running Denim. Does it really take months to adjust firmware for the US GSM network?
  • That's a glitch, nobody has been OTAing Denim yet but its supposed to start soon.
  • Yesssssssssssssssyeeeesssssssss. It's finally here
  • I am so happy, yet idk what to do now.....
  • I don't even care anymore. I got the preview, and I'm leaving T-Mobile. I've done some research and they tend to be last with many mobile updates. This was very frustrating for me.
  • I got the first update to Cyan.  Now it's downloading a second update.  Anyone know what this might be?
  • Several dev preview updates that fix things and add things. Sorry I can't be more specific. You shoulda clicked on more info
  • The original PforD 8.1 required an update that prepared the phone for the "real" 8.1 update.  Go figger, no big deal.  I've downloaded something now, it doing the post-gear "We're getting there."  Step 5 of 21.  
  • that's what I wondered too. it's like it put us back on the developers preview again and not just the official T-Mobile release. idk, I read the more info is showed like 3 other updates about developers release but wasn't specific to what, just kept saying to make your phone work better and to fix bugs and such... either this is fine... I'm waiting to see new phones next year then bolting from T-Mobile got the lack of support on updates and the limited windowsphone selection they offer... att here I come
  • This is great, although now, after all this wait, I forget why I cared so much!  What am I getting now that I didn't have before, aside from the new bluetooth and some camera updates? Anyone know?
  • WiFi calling finally works!! MMS works especially over WiFi. Set mine to WiFi preferred. So happy. I have shit service at my house. Matched up with the CellSpot router they sent me for free... Its amazing. Everyone needs this router btw. Its range is triple my router I had just bought which cost me $200. Fantastic! And It never gives issues. Now I will agree it was worth the wait. About time TMO did it right!!
  • This is the only fix I wanted!  Hoping, hoping....
  • It works beautifully my friend. Start it up and send yourself some pictures and watch the magic! You can tell they put work into it because even when you make a call it congratulates you on making a WiFi call.
  • As noted further on, I have tested SMS while on WFC, and it does work perfectly. However, pictures have ZERO to do with WFC.  They are sent as data, or via MMS, which uses data.  SMS uses voice frequencies like 1900mhz.  Actually, it jumps inbetween the moments when voice isn't using the "space."  Hint, hint: You may be able to get a text message through when all circuits are very loaded or busy like after an earthquake.
  • Just got my CellSpot today, I wasn`t setting my hopes to high but you`re right...WIFi calling finally WORKS ! The phone switches very fast from network to wifi and it doesn`t get stuck in wifi calling anymore. I turn my wifi off when I leave home and I set it to "turn back on near favorite places" so it switches back on when I get back to my poor reception home I have yet to try the MMS over wifi calling, if that works as well...I forgoive TMo for releasing the update so freakin` late
  • Finally running the official Windows Phone 8.1 cyan update on my 925! My wife's 521 has to wait though
  • This is a screenshot of the 2nd set of updates I got after Cyan installed.  Obviously running Dev Preview. http://i.imgur.com/Xooww3i.jpg
  • I got that too, I'm thinking it was the update 1 and it got rolled back and after the cyan update it just reinstall, that's just me thinking that.
  • Same as you guys. The first update was just to get ready for 8.1, on that second notification is when the cyan update came and it re-installed the last 3 builds of the dev preview (if you enabled that of course)
  • Just finished updating from the dp. Now my texting finally works, yaaaaaaay!
  • They took away one of my favorite features on Xbox Music. No more artist graphic on the Live Tile apparently.Some animations stutter like the notification dropdown. Still checking things out, but I think I need to watch an 8.1 primer.
  • Not me... Restart your phone.
  • Getting the update in Chicago. I think the best part about this, after waiting for so long is that my Lumia 925 gets new life and it won`t feel like a 15 month old phone.... for a while at least
  • I have some sort of update coming through to my T-Mo 925 as I write.  Knowing T-Mo, it's probably Black.."The Lost Updates"
  • Wow..this took long enough to arrive.
  • Verizon and Sprint ain't $h!t.
  • I must say that I feel finally whole ;)
  • Am I the only one that has Lumia Denim on my 925? I just did the update. I am also on Preview. And I defaulted my phone for the fun of it.
  • Just updated, things seem much zippier and more fluid
  • I am so glad to finally get the update on my 925. I was on the verge of unlocking it and taking it to at&t because I was tired of t-mobile's crappy support for windows phone. I can stick with them for a bit longer, until the next update... I hope my 521 on dev preview can update easily.
  • Web browser not good
  • Web browser not good for wp8.1 cyan sometimes error and sometimes direct to close by itself
  • I was getting that kind of behavior from the other day, don't think its the cyan update, I was waiting for the update to do a system restore will do on the weekend and see how it goes.
  • When I updated my tmo 925 (rm-893) tonight from the dev preview build it is showing as Denim now not cyan.
  • Extras n info glitch, soft reset your phone and it should say Cyan
  • Waahoo! Now I can go outside tell everyone my phone is officially up to date. They have been waiting out there for quite a while.
  • Tuesday evening, 11PM, east coast of the USA.  Running PforD 8.1.  Checked Update, yup, a BIG one is downloading.  My only issue with PforD 8.1 on the 925 is that when on WFC, SMS doesn't work.  Frankly, don't care about Cyan, only the former issue.  My 810, also PforD, says it's up to date.  So, apparently the 925 is getting something outside of DforP. All done.  On Denim!  Shot right past Cyan.  What do I get with Denim that I didn't have with Black? OS version: 8.10.14176.243.  Last previos OS,  8.10.14147.180 So, yes, it's real and it's significant!
  • You are on Cyan not Denim (My extras & info was showing Denim as of yesterday)
    You should have the abilty to to text with WFC enabled now 
  • OK, if my phone says Denim, how is it I'm on Cyan?  How does one determine that this announcement is wrong other than you or some others say that's the case?  Yes, I already said that the WFC issue does seem to be resolved. 
  • No he is correct. What happened was a couple weeks ago Microsoft updated Extras and Info and it caused a glitch where it showed phones the Denim name instead of Black. Make sure you have gone to the store, check for updates, install all app updates. Then make sure you installed both system updates to 8.1 (tmobile released 2 today the first was to get the phones ready) Then restart your phone and go back into Extras and Info and it should show Cyan
  • No. It. Doesnt. Boy, one little premature application and every takes it as gospel forevermore.  My app updates are automatic and there never was an Extras that showed Denim.   Latest PforD was still running Black before last night. Some European carriers announced that Cyan and then Denim will be installed simultaneously.  OK, well, sequentially.
  • Lol trust me dude, you dont have Denim.
  • It seems the Lumia 925 Cyan SW release has a core build of 3051.50009.1424.00xx I have a Lumia 925 which shows Lumia Denim with a core build of 3051.50009.1439.10416 That core build does not show up when searching Google, are we positive that the Denim has not been pushed to some phones? Can you post your core build ID's on phones that say Cyan and Phones that say Denim?
  • Apparently the update doesn't care if you have PforD or not.  It just does it.  The only difference, reading through comments, if you've not been running PforD, you will have to go through a number of "pre-updates" before the grand finale.  As we had to do on PforD.    TMO, I forgive your for your coyness!  (Althoug it would certainly have been ice to give us some assurances on your own forums beyond bullshit "We value you as a customer," kind of pablum. 
  • This is new, I think: A little arrow extending out of the wifi symbol on top of the start screen.  Don't recall ever seeing that.
  • Yup :) that's part of what a firmware update can accomplish. Cyan brought that feature. The software and hardware are talking perfectly now, if you will lol
  • But what does it signify?  Just cuz it's there - off and on - doesn't make a better phone, de facto.  What does it mean?
  • Oh sorry i thought you would get it lol it means the Wi-Fi and LTE antennas are pulling in data. When you see the arrows it means something is using data
  • Well, that sure made my life significantly better!
  • And also a little arrow on top of LTE
  • Well, this is it for me and WP - no Cyan/8.1 update on Verizon. My Icon is up for sale. No BlackBerry Passport on Verizon either so I guess I'll try the Moto Turbo next. 
  • Don't quit on WP just because Verizon...
  • All I can say is Bye Bye Verizon!
  • Just got my Cyan update and another is downloading as I type this.
  • Ummm guys my Lumia 925 on Developer preview skipped over Cyan Straight to Denim 
  • Ohh that would be nice!
  • really?
  • it says Denim haven't been able to get it to say Cyan no matter what I try.  Don't know some people say it's a bug
  • Downloading update (no preview) now!
  • Holy crap, finally. Am I dreaming?
  • Cool! Downloading with Preview already running on my Device. Also downloading on my wife's L925 without the Preview running.
  • 521 Lumia owerns who help made the Lumia significant still are watching and waiting impatiently for the cyan update.
  • I just Updated my Lumia 925, Cortana cannot  connect.
  • Giving WP til the end of the year.  It's been a great 2 years as my main daily driver.  Probably won't be getting another WP til Microsoft start treating it seriously.  I wonder if they ever thought about making a Surface Phone some time in the near future.
  • My 925 is updating now!! finally my Fitbit will be able to sync! T-Mobile, on DP running 8.1 I live in Seattle, but am in Atlanta now. :)  
  • Aaaaaaaaaannnnddd still waiting for the Icon.  Nice job, Verizon.  Way to support your top-end Windows phone.
  • Just confirming that SMS works both ways with this update.  The WFC appears to be stable, although I still had to re-turn it on when it at first didn't load right.  Damned firmware WFC (vs. old fashioned hardware implementation.) Despite what many have said on this thread, I have no reason to believe that it's not running Denim.  Not that I have a clue why Cyan - never rolled out on PforD - or Denim are supposed to be better other than they are.  Which is rather circular logic. Yes, the Extras app did apparently have a bit of premature application about two weeks ago.  But my 925 running PforD never got it.  So, with the announcement in Germany that Cyan and Denim will roll out concurrently, I have no doubts it's Denim. In the list of improvements under my Denim Extras screen is one for Glance.  Lo and behold, my calendar day/date/next appointment is showing up.  Or did that come in Cyan?   :) Now, if I only knew why Denim is better than Black..............
  • Interesting, getting another update after the 8.1 Cyan finished.    
  • looks like the second update was a Peview for developers update Now running 8.10.14192.280 and Cyan!    
  • Just got the update. Feels like a new phone. And have you notice how must windows phones are made to last?
  • I emailed John this weekend and week and was polite about it. They responded. Then asked my another question :D. I responded to that and wifi calling might have been an issue. No response then I see this.
  • I live in Finland and I got the Cyan on my Lumia 925 in last June.
  • Verizon, now it's your turn...
  • In a week.....
  • SEEMS FAST........................er.
  • I'm downloading an update now for the Lumia 925 for T-Mobile.
  • I had to reset after updating from dp because I couldn't type properly. After the reset, my phone went right to Denim and now all is well and better than ever. It's faster and I'm happy to be able to text again
  • Finally!!!  It sure did take long enough, but we finally have Cyan.  Magically my wi-fi calling works again, and actually works correctly.  Something it never did even before PD.  Now I can get text messages while connected to wifi calling.   Oh yeah, seems faster. lol
  • Isn't there another dev preview update were supposed to get before the end of the year? Like update 1 or 2 or something like that... One with new features? Nobody has talked about it and so I forgot when MS said it was coming around. Or if it was a rumor
  • My update rolled in this morning around 6:30am EST. I joked with my wife that it was the Cyan update. Of course after eyes rolled, I checked and lo and behold! Cyan!
  • Amazing... Great move T-Mobile... Now lets get started with the new update.
  • been using dev preview since day one on my 925, got lumia cyan today. noticeably much faster and smoother
  • Got the update, working well. Want to download WI-FI calling app but it says it's not available for my 925. is there a way to re-download the WI-FI calling app?
  • +1  Wondering this too!
  • All reports of DENIM being released are false alarms, as a simple web search will show.   That said---What advantage would Denim bring to a 925 anyway over Cyan?  The processor doesn't support "Hey Cortana" passive mode, right?  Will the camera work with the new features coming in that version?  I ask because I wonder--should I allow Cyan to overwrite my Developer's Preview 8.1?  If I stick with the Dev. Preview release, I'll likely get Denim much, much quicker than waiting for T-Mobile to push it if past history is any indication.  So, is Cyan NOW worth not having Denim for a long time, if ever, considering I'm already on 8.1? I don't care about wifi calling.  Is there better speed/battery with Cyan, and other advantages?
  • It seems the Lumia 925 Cyan SW release has a core build of 3051.50009.1424.00xx I have a Lumia 925 which shows Lumia Denim with a core build of 3051.50009.1439.10416 That core build does not show up when searching Google, are we positive that the Denim has not been pushed to some phones?

  • New, as of this AM, my second 925 just back from warranty repair upgraded itself to 8.1 Cyan, not Denim like my 925 that was running PforD.  Neither phone can find another update after those. Both phones have Firmware Revision 3051.50009.1439.0017 However, the Denim phone shows OS 8.10.14176.243, the Cyan phone, 8.10.12400.899.  Radically different, and if they always use higher numbers for later versions, backwards from what one might expect re Cyan and Denim sequence.
  • OS 8.10.14176.243 is Windows Phone 8.1 Update, OS 8.10.12400.899 is Windows Phone 8.1, 8.1 Update is the latest OS out as per, http://www.windowsphone.com/en-us/how-to/wp8/basics/windows-phone-8-upda... As for Firmware, Lumia 925 3051.50009.1424.00xx (Lumia Cyan) as per, http://developer.nokia.com/community/wiki/Firmware_change_logs_for_Nokia... If you get a chance check the Core Build ID, Application version and Build Creation date in the Extras + Info section of settings on your 925's to see if they are both the same on the Cyan and Denim.   My Denim firmware 925 has Core Build ID 3051.50009.1439.10416, App Ver 3.12.0.3, Build Creation 9/29/2014   If both your Cyan and Denim have the same it is very safe to assume that the firmware is identical, just the name bug as reported by many others in the community. Not sure why the core ID build number 3051.50009.1439.xxxx is not listed at the Nokia firware revision site though.      
  • meanwhile at verizon...... crickets
  • And yet the Lumia Icon on Verizon is still stuck on WP8.0 with Lumia Black!  Verizon SUCKS!
  • I picked up a 925 from NewEgg for $199 off contract for my step-dad over the summer. Absolutely fantastic phone for him. Kicking myself for not buying a second one for my mom. She's still rocking the 710.
  • I finally allowed the update to my Nokia Lunia 925, and it trashed my phone. The Name ID service no longer works. My ringer volume goes to zero for no reason at least once a day; as a result, I cannot hear inbound phone calls. The visual voicemail can't connect any more unless I talk to technical support and they can get it going for a day or two then it stops connecting. There is a new slide-out feature of settings that you can access by dragging the edge of the screen, but if you are working on something on the screen, you suddenly can't work because the settings properties slide out.  I now need a new phone.
