Even if it says there that update is available you sometimes need to wait for a while. In 3-4 weeks all phones will get update...at least you know you are in the "waiting line".

Here are the tricks on how to force your phone update to windows phone 7.8:

Timing is important.

You can start counting after you click on "Update" until it shows you your phone is up to date.

In your next try, start counting again after u click "update" and disable your internet 1 second before it shows your phone is up to date.

Re: windows 7.8 for lumia 800

[ Edited ]
Well, I asked this discussion group over a month ago about when I was likely to receive the 7.8 update. Was told it would be released over the next 3 weeks, that was at beginning of February. Mines an unlocked lumia 800 on O2. Guess what? Still no update, Zune tells me it's already up to date (8773)
Getting a bit miffed now. However, have read reports that the update has caused problems with volume and live tiles, has this been confirmed or acknowledged by Nokia yet?
The reports make me wonder if I should be keen to receive the update or would it be safer to leave my phone as it is.
Incidentally, tried online chat with Nokia 2 weeks ago regarding the update, they told me I should have received it by 21st Feb, but nothing came. Before anyone asks, yes, I have updates turned on, I keep connecting to Zune and yes I have read the original announcement that it would be phased, but this is taking far longer than what I would have expected.
Anyone else in the same boat?
