    Not that whoever posts these seems to check the comments.. But i'm curious about the obligation of carriers to pass on such updates. I bought my Lumia prepaid from Telstra (and it runs a telstra rom/branding) but I am only getting the major updates through optus.

    Makes me wonder what the requirements are from vendors and carriers when these updates currently are required to be deployed specifically by carriers when the Lumia is currently (and potentially forever) exclusive to Telstra..
