Default Unlocked phones and OS updates

Please Login to Remove!

With all the news about Windows Phone updates that has just been released, I'm kind of curious to know if unlocked phones will receive updates before locked phones? I think they might since an unlocked phone won't be tied to any specific carrier. What worries me is ATT and their past history with testing updates, I realize Microsoft will push the updates through Zune, but how long can a carrier test an update, did Microsoft provide a time frame for testing? I hope they did! If nobody knows I guess we will find out soon, and if it turns out that unlocked phones get the updates first, I think I will be unlocking my phone only to receive updates quickly.

Unlocking has absolutely no bearing on whether or not a carrier releases a software update.

Your entire post makes almost no sense at all.
