059D7K9, status as at 30 March: Waiting for operator approval or similar, and April 1: In creation. Very strange. Such a feeling you fooling us.
I'm travelling today and tomorrow and will therefore post the updated release schedule on Wed.

*Russia country variant (059D7K9): The reason for the changed status is the fact that the local team stopped the work on PR1.1 and created a request for PR1.2 instead. That's why it's "under creation" again.

This is important!
SFR France(059D5S6) already requested PR1.2 for Nokia C7-00 or not?

Thanks for reply!
Yvonne, why do not you create firmware? This is just a waste for you!
Just wondering if you've found anything further out about 059F823 (Ireland)?
The operator (3 Ireland) told me it was in testing last week, but then later said the information
was incorrect and did not elaborate.
Some apps are starting to look for the newer firmware now so this is becoming a huge issue.
according to your excel sheet the PR1.2 update should be available for my phone (C7 - 059d2b2). However, it's not. Neiter via OVI Suite nor OTA.
Any ideas why?
Any help is appreciated.
attached is the latest release schedule.
*India, 059B7C0: It should be available on the servers as OviSuite update as well, as we release both the OTA and the PC files at the same time.
*Ireland, 059F823: We haven't had any request from ROI/Three Ireland for PR1.2 so far and I also don't see anything in creation for PR1.1 at the moment. For me it looks like they are not taking both versions.
*Germany countryvariant, 059D2B2: I see it as published - have you tried a reset by pressing the powerkey for 8 sec and then trying it again? (But I'm not technical expert.)
Thanks again Yvonne for checking the details on Ireland, 059F823.
The operator still hasn't got back to me, but I'd just like to reiterate how badly this reflects on Nokia. If the operator does not commit to releasing the firmware updates, I'll be looking for a non-nokia replacement phone off them as at least they are supported by the manufacturer and firmware updates are pushed through irrespective of operator interaction.
Nokia needs to adopt this model of releasing updates directly to consumers, irrespective of operators.
I've stood by Nokia through too many devices that have been abandoned by operators (N73, E65, E71, E75 and now C7) long enough now and am fed up with being left high and dry.
I had also been quite vocal in my support of Symbian^3 but will no longer be doing so, given my inability to access the updates/improvements in functionality.

I've got a Russian unbranded and unlocked mohogany brown C7 and we're still stuck on 1.01.
In the excel file my product code is listed twice (059D9Z9) once for the 13.016 update and once for the 14.002 update.
We we're told that the 13.016 update was cancelled because it wasn't ready in time before they released the 14.002 and so Nokia Russia would start all over again making the 14.002 for my phone. Now they have announced Symbian Anna.
So I would like to know what to expect -- will I get the 13.016, the 14.002 or will that also be cancelled and now I will have to wait until Anna is ready in a few more months' time?
I got tired of waiting for PR1.2 on my Nokia C7 with Hong Kong fimware. It still wasn't available as of last weekend.
I r**ted my phone with Nokia_C7-00_RM-675_EURO_014.002_V4.00.rar. Google it and you will find everything you need for free. Now I have PR1.2. Everything is working and I am very happy. I recommend this solution to everybody who still don't have PR1.2.
Except of course that now I would really like to get the PR2.0 Anna...
