Windows Phone 8.0 smartphones may not be upgradeable to 8.1 http://www.computerworld.com/s/article/9243661/Windows_Phone_8.0_smartphones_may_not_be_upgradeable_to_8.1
I bought lumia 720 2 months ago and the observed pros & cons are
--> Camera clarity was really awesome.
--> Battery back up was good
--> Torch was awesome because of Gorilla glass.
--> Cant view the lengthy names of the people while receiving any call
--> Messages cant be archived.
--> Difficult in sim accessibility.
--> Almost same specifications for Lumia 520 & 720. But price is little bit higher.
--> only 512MB Ram. But enough for all basic app users.
--> No buttons to the earphones mike.
--> Only 6 tabs can be opened in internet explorer.
On totality phone was good even though there are -ves

Sam, 12 Nov 2013It has stuck at cog wheels. Just rotating since hrs.. have to visit Nokia Care only, I guess..Check if your power button is working properly. Chances are that it is broken. I had the exact same problem. The power button was broken internally but got it replaced under warranty. All the best.

For changing your Blue Tooth Name you must connect your device to the PC and there you tends to get your required criteria.
As for Amber Update, take your device to your nearest Nokia Priority Center and they will update the same.

Two months back I bought Lumia 720 from flipkart. Few days back,while taking it out from my back pocket it slipped and the entire screen got shattered. Nokia customer service bluntly told me that cornia gorilla glass is only scratch resistant & not impact proof and it can get damaged even if it falls from 1 feet distance. The cost of replacing the same is Rs 7500!!!. My phone is useless just after 2 months. All the features, beautiful looks etc are of no use if the phone is not strong enough to withstand a fall from just 2.5 feets! Exactly similar thing happened with my friend having the same phone.
The design of this phone is thinner & rounded on the edge, which makes it difficult to pull out from pocket or pouch.
If you are willing to take the risk go ahead and buy lumia 720. I am not going to recommend this phone to anybody.
