No update windows 7.8 lumia 900

I hope somebody can help me. I bought the lumia 900 in the Netherlands. I downloaded Zune and looked for the update 7.8 but Zune says that my phone is updated with 7.1. What can I do to get windows 7.8?

Thanks for your help.

The version number for WP7.8 is 7.10.8858.136. Is this what you have? Most people expect to see 7.8 which is  not the case.

Re: No update windows 7.8 lumia 900

Can I ask a question about this update (didn't want to start a new thread with the same title)?

 

I'm in the UK and bought a brand new, unlocked, Nokia Lumia 900 last year. I'm using it with Vodafone but have found that there is no update available for it. The Vodafone support forums aren't very helpful, with a support comment that because they didn't provide Nokia Lumia 900's direct there are no updates being 'pushed'.

 

Whenever I connect to Zune (Windows) or Windows Phone (Mac OSX) I'm told there are no updates available.

 

According to Settings, my software is 'Windows ® Phone 7.5' and the

 

OS version is 7.10.8779.8.

Firmware is 2175.2503.8779.12301.

Hardware revision is 112.1914.2.0.

 

Interestingly, when connected using the Windows Phone app on Mac OSX, the device version is 07.10.08779.03 which differs from that shown on the actual phone.

 

So you have any idea how/if I'm able to get 7.8 on the phone? I've heard that because of problems with 7.8 and stuck tiles that the update may have been pulled for the time being but I can't find a definitive answer anywhere!

 

Any advice would be appreciated!

Re: No update windows 7.8 lumia 900

I have the same issue, been trying to update my lumia 900 to 7.8 here in China same specs as you, and it does not find an update although the China Website says that the latest firmware is a different rev than we have...Will I get 7.8 ever? Will someone from Nokia actually address this? Please see my screenshot, shows that Nokia is saying I should be able to upgrade to the new software but I still am having no luck.

What exactly is not true ? As for what the update will contain, this has been public information for several months now, so your information is hardly a groundbreaking revelation.

What network are you on, what services do you want to use and were you ever able to use them ? What are your current OS and Firmware versions ?
