    Unfortunately, Verizon is still holding back its 8.1 update. 🙁

    Just checked my Lumia 925 on Vodafone UK and it states that there is no update available. It would be nice if both Microsoft and the phone operators kept all their customers up to date, after all MS has our email addresses and even if the phone operators don’t they know our numbers to text information. Such a simple thing that neither party can be bothered to do. Is there a way I can find if Vodafone UK have the update to test or not, as they have a habit of not releasing updates for phones they no longer sell, then hopefully MS will give users of older phones like the Lumia 925 the chance to remove Vodafone software and allow generic software.
