Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

I just got the Tango update. However, still no Internet sharing.

 

My Phone is a Lumia 800. My provider here in Austria is A1. However, I should emphasize that the phone is not carrier branded and that my HTC Trophy that is indeed simlocked to A1 did get Internet sharing back when Mango became available.

 

OS version is 7.10.8773.98

Firmware is still 1600.2487.8107.12070

 

Am I maybe missing a new firmware that shoud have come with Tango? Ideas, anyone?

Re: Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

I'm in Brazil, same thing here. I got Windows Phone update using Windows Phone connector for Mac OS but no firmware upadate. Camera Extras do not start asking for "an update", no internet sharing, etc.

 

firmware: 1600.3014.8107.12050

OS: 7.10.87736.98

Device Carrier: TIM (Brazil), but is an unlocked phone and I'm using other carrier (Claro)

Re: Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

I think I originally provided the answer myself. I'm lacking the new firmware which apparently is not being rolled out yet for unlocked phones while Tango already is. I remember back a few month when the last firmware update came out, unlocked phones where also served last back then, for whatever strange reason.

 

Guess we just have to wait for the firmware to arrive.

Hi ChRoM,

 

Thanks for your post.

 

From the version numbers it seems you have installed just the Microsoft Windows Phone OS and not the Nokia Firmware. The update which is available from Nokia will include both the Windows Phone OS as well as the Nokia Firmware revision update.

 

Please do not use alternative means to install system software on your phone as this may invalidate your warranty or damage your device. You will get a notification on the Lumia once the update for your phone is available to you after which you can install it using Zune.

 

Hope this helps,

Kosh

Re: Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

Hi,

 

I am facing a similar problem. I updated my phone using the Mac Connector ( Dint force update). While the software is 7.10.8773, the firmware is still 8107..any idea when we will get the firmware update from Nokia? I have a Lumia 800 and I am from India. 

 

Thanks,

Re: Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

Hi all,

 

Thanks for your feedback.

 

Did you receive the update notice on the Lumia before performing the update? Also please provide me your device IMEI in a personal mail so we can verify this for you.

 

Hope this helps,

Kosh

Re: Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

I am having the same issue.

I connected using the Mac WP7 Connector. As soon as I connected it said there was an update available.

It updated to OS version - 7.10.8112.7

 

I then re-connected again and it found another update and is now at 7.10.8773.98 but the firmware is still at 1600.2487.8107.12070

 

The phone did not display a new update was available before I connected to the WP7 Connector on Mac.

When I connected my 800 up today I got the 7.10.8112.7 OS update first but after it completed I did not disconnect. Zune then started another update which bumped the OS to 7.10.8773.98 then finally there was a 3rd "Nokia update" that changed the firmware to 1750.0805.8773.12220.

 

After all the updates were complete it does now have the internet sharing option.

Re: Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

Hi all,

 

Please be aware the update may consist of multiple 'runs'. You may get the Windows Phone OS update first and the Firmware update at a later time. This is largely up to the way the updates are propagated through the Microsoft update system and as such not under the control of Nokia.

 

Hope this helps,

Kosh

Re: Got Tango, still no Internet sharing for me

Hi Kosh, I bought this lumia 800 almost 4weeks ago but till now i did not receive any message for firmware update. Do I need to register my phone product code? or is there something that I didn't do that prevented me from getting the FW update message? Please help.
