amber update for lumia 520

[ Edited ]

I am using Lumia 520. I had got an notification for amber update and I download it and install it on OTA,but it doent shows any change on my mobile.

the OS version and firmware version remains same. I had checked for phone updates but it shows ur phone is uptodate.
I had noticed that on my friends phone data sense installed along update and in extra+info it shows that it has been updated to amber update but in my mobile it only shows an exclamatory symbol that leads to amber update web page
my OS version: 8.0.10328.78

firmware version:1030.6408.1309.0002

country: India

In India amber is released with new firmware version. My friend has Lumia 520 and he got the amber update with new firmware version.

help me out how to update it.

Re: amber update for lumia 520

firmware version doesn't sound right, sounds like it may have been a botched update.

first of all, do not post your IMEI as it is personal information and could expose you to dangerous scenarios.

have you tried performing a soft reset (pressing the volume down and power buttons together until the phone vibrates)? also check that you are up to date with all the latest Nokia system app updates too.

Re: amber update for lumia 520

on the nokia lumia 520 is there anyway that you can change to xt9 eg. Abc2 Def3 so on. Can you change to this way? Because i've poor eye sight and the a to z keyboard is to small for me to see to hit the keys. Is there a way to do that?

@ ralph213 - There are 3rd Party applications available ( e.g. THIS ) ..but they have their own drawback like you won't be able to replace the native keyboard and hence can't use it while replying to the messages .. For texts you need to go thru' this application ..

Re: amber update for lumia 520

I too see the same  same firware and OS version as moorthy1993. I believe the OS version seen is after it got updated to GDR2 on Sep 24.

OS version: 8.0.10328.78
firmware version:1030.6408.1309.0002
country: India

No software resets have helped me either to update to Amber. It always shows that my phone is uptodate. All other apps like extras+info are updated to the latest.

My Lymia 520 is also showing the notification for the Amber update but it is showing that my phone is up to date when I search for updates. My OS version is also showing as 8.0. Lumber update is 8.1?

Contradictory statement !!! Is it showing availability of update or not ? Once you update the phone, you also need to update the System Applications using an application like THIS to get the applicable features.

Though 'Delete All' isn't available you can select Multiple Messages by clicking 'select' Icon
