Its irrelevant which Telco SIM you have in the device, updates are controlled by the operator image existing on the phone when it shipped

ah, I see. It appears Black is available for "Australia" (purchased from Harvey Norman so not sure who the operator is in this case). I'll wait until I get home and connect to WiFi.

Thanks, I'm happy to pay 0.99 to remove the ads. Now I just need to setup a payment method ;-)

You can check for updates over the mobile network, and if there's an update available download later over WiFi.

Thanks. I'll wait a few weeks for beta testing to complete.

Edit: Can WP8 updates be rolled back / restored to factory?
