Re: Windows Phone 7.8 Update

I came here to post that. it's a shame the mods here don't post stuff like this first

Re: Windows Phone 7.8 Update

Its doubful the mods would post rumors from other sites - until there is an offical announcement, what would you have a mod post?

 

As soon as any offical press release is made, someone will post a link to it.

 

All that said, I would fully expect the Lumia 900 to get the update first, and hope that other devices would follow after not to long a delay.

Re: Windows Phone 7.8 Update

Im hoping the HTC Titan's will get the update.But I truely want to see as many devices as possible to get the update.Did we ever get Tango? Verizon's ONLY Windows Phone at the time got Tango compared to ATT being the so called premier Windows Phone partner.I dont hate ATT but they sure dont act like they are the premier partner.

Re: Windows Phone 7.8 Update

no updates yet and it's the day for the L900 may have to go the flash route

I swear these guys are just killin' me with the stalling.

 

Verizon is supposedly getting a Nokia Hero phone soon.  May soon be time to leap....

Didn't have to flash just did the zune trick and got it

1- Turn off cellular data, and Wifi on your Lumia 900 or WP device(see below).
2- Connect to Zune, check for updates. It won’t detect one.
3- Change to a different tab other than update in the settings.
4- Disconnect phone, then reconnect it.
5- Now, get ready. You will need to hit the “Update” button and unplug the network cable from your computer exactly 2 seconds (or for some 5 seconds) after hitting this button. It will present an update is available!
6- Reconnect internet, then hit Update!
7- Now update!

HTC:
    Titan
    Radar
    Mozart
    Trophy

LG:
    E900

Nokia
    Lumia 610 & Lumia 610 NFC
    Lumia 710
    Lumia 800
    Lumia 900

Samsung:
    Omnia W
    Omnia 7
So even the LG E900 is getting this update.

Some Dell DVP people are getting it also

 Edit you have to do the unplug trick more than once since there are more than one update

Re: Windows Phone 7.8 Update

I may be wrong about this, but I have to believe that AT&T and/or Microsoft would provide a somewhat easier way to update to 7.8 than taking a Network + class...

Re: Windows Phone 7.8 Update

Well i have an HTC HD7S and it seems that once again AT&T won't be pushing the updates. I am now switching to t-mobile because they know how to release updates on time.

To be fair this date was never announced.  We only knew that Nokia was targeting the Lumia 900.  Other devices and networks was a nice bonus.

Yeah. Well, I have a Nokia Lumia 900 and I've been trying to get the stupid update for TEN HOURS!!!!! This is my last AT&T phone.

 

EDIT: Just spoke to a rep from AT&T who said it could be as long as two weeks before I get the update. Funny how this NEVER happens with iPhones. Guess I will have to switch back to one. On Verizon.

Re: Windows Phone 7.8 Update

ATT should put out a blog on which phones are getting the 7.8 update.
