I'm using Nokia Lumia 620, India, No Sim. Nokia says that update is available. But my phone is showing that it's up to date.

  • There is a possibility, that update is already installed, and you just haven't noticed it. Amber install (at least for me) was silent. Look in settings, if you have Glance option, for example.

  • Seriously, I'm eagerly waiting for this update, I'm checking current version everyday. So, no chance for silent update. And Nokia's Smart Cam only work with Amber.

As you mention, Nokia has a website which lists the status of the Amber update on all of its Windows Phone 8 devices.

Even if the update status for your device is 'Available', not everyone gets the update at once. So, you have a few options...

  1. Wait a couple more weeks by which time the update should appear.
  2. Find your local Nokia Service Center (Care Point) and have it updated there.
  3. Skip the queue and update your device manually using Nokia Software Updater for Retail - but this will wipe your device!

I won't link to Nokia Software Updater for Retail, but it's easy enough to find using your favourite search engine.

  • Is Nokia Software Updater for Retail official?

  • Yes, but it's not supposed to be available to members of the public ;) Sep 25 '13 at 10:55
  • @NK And probably it is not a supported method. Sep 27 '13 at 15:24
  • I checked with it. But showing a minor update. No Amber update is available
