    How to upgrade a 920 without a SIM

    Is there a way to upgrade the firmware in an unlocked Lumia 920 (//Build 2012) that doesn't have a SIM card? In other words, via WiFi or USB. Thanks!

    While I do not have a Nokia Lumia 920, my 820 and 1020 were successfully updated without SIM card, over WiFi. Have you actually tried? Settings/Software update, and Search for updates (or something very similar to these, my device is set to Hungarian in fact).
    Note that Nokia operates a discussion board about phone usage questions, http://www.nokia.com/discussions, this topic better fits there.

    I have tried a few times and it didn't work. I wondered if I was wasting my time. I will try again since you say it should work.

    Thanks for the forum tip. I figured since it is a developer phone, that I would be talking to "my own kind" here!

    I guess you are asking about installing the WP8.1 developer Preview? Did you install the "Preview for Developers" App and use it to configure your phone so it will install Preview Updates instead of only official ones?

    (Just to reflect to the original question: the preview install does not need a SIM card either)
