Sebby: Great news! Looking forward to this update :)

I wish I can connect to wifi using manually configured ip address.... 

Keen to know the scenario so I can pass your feedback on.

You have no DHCP?  Can you explain why :)

At work we have been assigned a set range of IP address by the IT department. They don't allow DHCP for security reasons. Everyone else on Android or IOS can connect except for me :(

you might want to see if your work will turn on dhcp and  set up a mac address reservation for you -

Yes, I have read about this somewhere, I will ask the IT guys nevertheless. Thanks for the link!

DHCP Scope with only reservations and no free IPs will achieve the same thing without the manual setup.

Sounds a bit mickey mouse.

It'll be weeks at best. Telecom needs to test and approve the update before it is released.

If you visit the link in the OP you can keep track of it yourself. I think last time it was around 2 weeks once it showed "coming soon"

Got my 925 back from Nokia Care (smashed the screen) and I'm downloading Black right now :D it's an OEM model so I'm assuming the update was pushed awhile ago.

$287. The 920 could be even cheaper to repair though. On the 925 the display and metal case have to be replaced as one part.

In saying that, Nokia only quoted me the cost for replacing the glass and display. But on the repair form it lists the frame+display as being the one part that was replaced. So either the quote was actually for the cost of this whole assembly and the Nokia Care rep was confused, or they only charge you for the components that are actually broken.

Anyway back on topic... Black hasn't been all that big of an upgrade. The Glance notifications are cool but that's about it for me. Perhaps if I hadn't already got the Update 3 preview it would've been more monumental. WP8.1 is where this is gonna get really exciting :D
