A couple days ago, we heard that AT&T could start rolling out the Windows Phone 8.1 update to its Windows Phones this week, and that possibility has already become a reality. Earlier today, AT&T began rolling out the update to the Nokia Lumia 1520, meaning users can expect to be getting into some Cortana fun pretty soon...

Do carriers bloat up WP?
If so, shame on them.

Yep, these phones come with carrier apps. xD
But the good thing is that these pre-installed apps can be uninstalled just like any other app, so it's not a big deal.

They do but the bloat doesnt run automatically like others and can be uninstall with ease and not just 'hidden'.

Is it possible to "down grade" once you've installed the preview?

I hope not, already seen the prototype in use at a work event, lovely red color and great screen (quadhd according to rep). So if they do, they will have test devices that they need to pull back.

No 520 update? I'm still waiting. I thought Windows Phones were all going to get updates simultaneously?

Most carriers will roll out updates such as these over a weeks time to not kill the call center techs if things dont go right or for questions. I know at tmo it is about a 2 week full span for markets at times depending on the update and how 'critical' the update is. Like the s5/note3 update that fixed the bricked android update for sms, it rolled to everyone, but other updates took a few days to get to everyone.
