Re: Lumia 800 to windows 8 mobile??

 The Lumia 800 will not be upgradable to Windows Phone 8 due to hardware restrictions of the 800 such as multi core CPU support and SD card support.

I heard Windows 8 is out for Lumia 800, I tried to check for update but I am getting message that "Your phone is up to date. Current phone software version 7.10 (8773)"

When will you provide Windows 7.8 update for Nokia Lumia 800?

It is not available on Zune and also the website (http://www.nokia.com/in-en/support/product/nokia-lumia-800/) does not mention anything about Windows 7.8

Please help!!!

What exactly do you want?

At first sight it looks like you're telling people to download Windows 8. Microsoft might not be too happy about that.

If you're asking where *you* can download it then that's a different matter, although it's irrelevant to these forums.

Maybe you want to know where to download Windows *PHONE* 8?

Short answer: you can't.

Longer answer: your phone either comes with it or not. The latest Lumia phones already have it so there's nothing to do. Older Lumia phones such as the 800 or the 900 originally shipped with Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango", which was later updated to Windows Phone 7.8. These phones will *NOT* be updated to Windows Phone 8.

You too what?

If you mean you want to download Windows Phone 8 then the answer will be the same. You can't. Your phone either comes with it or it doesn't.

Re: Lumia 800 to windows 8 mobile??

Was there any chance to get call summary pop-up message  in Lumia 710 (Windows 7.8). Or is there any app for that ?..

I am using pre-paid mobile, without this bill summary it is hard to maintain the balance. Please help me. Reply to rchudayaATliveDotCom

IMO the 1020 is mostly a bigger 800. From the latest gen of devices I'd say the 730/735

When it comes to size, you might have a look at the Nokia Lumia 620 …

When it comes to the feel, you might have a look at the Nokia Limia 720 …

When it comes to get the most recent, you might have a look at the Nokia Lumia 830 …
