TELUS to roll out Update 3 to Lumia 520, 620 and 1020 in Janurary 2014

We've got some news if you're a TELUS subscriber and own a Nokia Lumia 520, Lumia 620 or Lumia 1020. The mobile operator has refreshed its update 3 schedule for Windows Phone. The noted handsets are set to receive Update 3 and Lumia Black sometime in January 2014.

While the updates will not be coming this year, it's positive to see the company take necessary steps to ensure everyone is aware of exactly when they can look to receive notifications. The bundle has rolled out to consumers in multiple markets already, offering bonus features and functionality.

We recommend you read up more information on both Update 3 (previously GDR3) and Lumia Black through our previous coverage.

  • Thought Lumia black would be released in the USA on black Friday but obviously I was wrong... :(
  • Wow that feels so far off
  • Any word on when non-carrier-locked (OEM) handsets will get Nokia's Lumia Black update?
  • Probably in middle december... The date is actually unknown :/
  • Nokia said Lumia Black would be released in the beginning of next year.
  • I'm on Telus but got my GDR3 via developer preview. 2014 is way too late. Glad I don't have to wait for it.
  • Agreed. Same here. Even though it's a beta, it's better than waiting.
  • But you haven't got Lumia Black, which is what I'm waiting for! (I've got dp aswell)!
  • At least people with telus knows something about the update, Rogers doesn't even have a update info page
  • I absolutely agree.   At least Telus is communicating with their customers.   Many US carriers will not say a damn thing until the day of the update or shortly before.   I'd much prefer being with a company that communicates openly with their customers.
  • they have an update info thread on their community forums: sadly though ive never seen them post anything nokia/windows phone related
  • Ya did developer update as well. GDR3 isn't that much of an upgrade. I want Black. :)
  • When is tmobile gonna update
  • The eternal question, when will T-Mobile update?   I am waiting on GDR 3 for my HTC 8X.  
  • This^
  • Good thing I don't have to wait that long.
  • At least now we know
  • I only want black. I already have gddr3 on my Lumia 1020
  • When is lumia 820 india going to get the black update?..without carrier..
  • +820....does anyone know??
  • Not sure but in December I guess, unlocked phones usually get the update before carrier onces. Nokia 925
  • Janurary? :[ Rawrrr.
  • Miaww :P
  • :3
  • :D
  • Well damn. I was surprised when TELUS released GDR2. Even then it seemed like they were treating Windows Phone as a "well if we have to" platform, but now it seems like they actually care. I hope this is the new TELUS, and a sign of things to come. But I'm still not sure.
  • I've discovered, to my sorrow, that Windows Phone is not high on Telus's list.  The fact that they are saying anything is a big shock, to me.
  • What about att, waaaa,waaaa
  • You mean AT&T(errible?)
  • What about Ativ s,?
  • You can just download the GDR3 update if you want
  • I have the developer preview. I just like to keep tabs on when I would get it if I didn't get the preview.
  • How?
  • Yes where is my GDR3 for my ATIV S from TELUS?
  • I was thinking the same thing. I have a telus Ativ S as well as a 1020
  • Typo on the Title
  • Any ideas on when 920 owners in the UK could be seeing GDR3/Black Update?
  • Was wondering that myself
  • Does this mean koodo as well as koodo works on telus network
  • and I thought only Android user get late update.
  • Oh please go away troll
  • How about 720?
  • When I may get Nokia Lumia black
