Unlocked Nokia Lumia 1520.3 now receiving Lumia Cyan update
If there is one Lumia 1520 that is the king of all 1520s it is an unlocked 1520.3 variant, which for those in the US comes with LTE support for AT&T and T-Mobile, in addition to 32 GB of internal memory and Qi wireless charging. Yes, it has everything.
Luckily, if you own that phone, you can now get the Lumia Cyan update, assuming you are not of the Preview for Developers edition of 8.1.
Quite a few members in our forums are confirming the update is live, starting at 1 PM ET time today. In order to see the update though, you do need to downgrade your phone first to 8.0 and then take the proceeding updates to the 8.1 and Lumia Cyan. The process itself is relatively simple, but it can be time consuming to restore your backup if you have a lot information.
Read our tutorial on how to downgrade to 8.0
Regardless, the choice is yours. Head into our discussion forum to talk to others about the OS update and who have the Lumia 1520.3.
Thanks to mattdistro and others for the tips!

Just installed 8.1 on my german 1520
Heads-Up: New Egg is not like Amazon, they may call you to verify before charging your card but shipping is right on-time with your chosen shipping metho..ie. 1, 2 or regular ground.
Don't you mean the 'original' version that was released by Nokia everywhere apart from the U.S. (where it was castrated by the carriers)
Fully unlocked (CV), 32gb Qi charging etc
Mine says 1520.1 on the box..... Keep up U.S.
?? I don't want to downgrade to wp8 if not available
I think 620 will be the last one to receive the update yet again
I am currently checking through Nokia Care Suite and mrcrab.net , both still reporting the old firmware. I am pretty sure it will be updated soon, when Nokia updates their Cyan status page.
The update for Philippines is here but my device is RM937 apac hongkong 222
Do you have any info of when the Lumia Cyan and WP 8.1 is available for this phone?
