So the same issue is happening in the UK too but what i dont understand is myself and my partner both got the lumia 800, he got his a month ago mine about 2 weeks ago.

Re: windows 7.8 for lumia 800

As per THIS, Nokia have nothing to do with the availability of this update. Quote:


"When it's available, we'll also pass along software from phone manufacturers that improves the performance of specific phone models. If you have questions about what's included in a phone manufacturer update, contact your phone manufacturer.

To learn what new features and improvements are included in our latest release, see Windows Phone 7.8. To see what we've included in other updates, see Windows Phone 7 update history."


So, WP7.8 is MICROSOFT'S latest update for WP7 and it is entirely in the hands of MICROSOFT when you will receive it.


As you can see from the above quote, even Nokia-specific firmware updates (which 7.8 is NOT) depend entirely on Microsoft for their delivery.

Re: windows 7.8 for lumia 800

It's the end of March now, and I still haven't received any update.  I've got an unbranded Nokia Lumia 800 on the O2 network, and I think similar to you, I check it every day, but nothing!


Though checking on the Nokia website, it seems to suggest that the lastest software for the UK is the one that came out last July!  How can it take two months to roll out software!?
