Something wrong in UK, two updates but still old firmware?!

No internet sharing or flip working. Is the Nokia bit delayed for lumia 800?

Same. I got the 7.10.8112.7 update at first then the 7.10.8773.98 update. I'm in UK. Think it may be nokia's fault here.

 

EDIT: got the lumia firmware update.

Have updated two UK 059L7C2 Lumia 800 on different days and the three updates came through together, you may just have to wait 24 hours to get the third.

Can you tell me if you forced this update or did you do it by the normal channels i.e.. You got the notification on your phone and up dated normally with Zune. I ask because I have a 800 with the same product code and I cannot get the update. I would have thought that if a particular code could be updated normally then all phones with that code would be up dateable. I may be wrong though.

Both updated normally via Zune although took quite a time to complete and install the three updates. The example which I updated on the following day had been "reset" prior to disposal which may or may not have helped.

 

It is not as simple as just releasing update for product code, as ability to update is "throttled" both to cope with demand upon servers and to ensure update process is running smoothly (or not as the case may be)!

Re: Got 8773 update in uk but no firmware update!

Clearly this is proving to be quite an unsatisfactory process for most Lumia users



I to have been waiting several days now for the firmware part of the update process - Internet Sharing (tethering) being the feature I require (for months).



I got the 2 software updates early in the week - successfully installed with no issues.



no wonder both Microsoft and Nokia are losing market share - the products actually excellent, support and service not so :-(

Re: Got 8773 update in uk but no firmware update!

Totally agree with you. The update process make many Lumia customers unhappy and complain so much. We can see many complaints about update process on forum. On behalf of customer's view, I love my Lumia phone but totally dislike the update process, especially the throttling control.
