Nokia Lumia 920 on Rogers Starts Receiving Windows Phone Update

A new update for Nokia’s Lumia 920 has started to make it’s way to Roger’s devices. The update brings enhancements in messaging, more efficient and reliable Bluetooth, more efficient and reliable start-up sequence, enhancements to imaging performance and battery management, and various other platform updates and enhancements. Your phone should notify you when the update is available, but if you don’t want to wait, you can force it to check by tapping Settings / Phone Update / Check for updates. The update is delivered over the air (OTA), which means you don’t need to connect your phone to your computer and install it using the Zune client like you did with the older version or Windows Phone. However, due to the size of the update, it is required that you to connect the phone to WiFi for downloading.

I found the download was pretty quick, but the real delay came in the “preparing to install” stage. Even after it reached 100%, it took a while longer before it prompted me to start the actual update. My guess is that this was delayed as it unpacked and backed up any customizations that needed to be restored after. The actual install went pretty quickly and the phone rebooted once it was all done. Overall, the process was smooth, with no issues or troubles. And most importantly, once the update was done installing, everything worked and no pictures or data were lost. I started the download at 11:24, and as you can see by the screen shots, the total time to download and update the device was 30 minutes.
