I have the lumia 800 on tmobile in the UK and still no update, anyone have it on tmobile?

 

I've tried the forced method and it just says 'cant connect to find update'

 

I've emailed and tweeted Nokia, no reply on either. Very frustrating, bad form Nokia!!


This means you need to wait a few seconds more in order for the update to be found!!!!!

 

Don't worry, everyone has different disconnectivity times, so you'll just have to keep trying for it to work.

1) You obviously didn't try hard enough to update your phone ...

2) Samsungs are rubbish compared to Nokia

3) You can't blame Nokia but Orange as updates are dependant on your operator

Hi everyone,

 

Microsoft has identified a minor issue in the Windows Phone 7.8 update and have temporarily paused delivery until it’s addressed. We’ll have more information as it becomes available.

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

I got my 7.8 update & the disconnect method worked for me. I am based in India & it got me through 2 small updates first & the 3rd one to my surprise was 7.8. I am not sure why would a nokia employee provide a misleading information that Microsoft has paused the release because of some bug, this is disappointing. But i am happy that I got my Update :smileyvery-happy:

The statement clearly implies not but would it matter really if they did?

 

If you want to know more there are many, many (more or less speculative) posts on this here and on most WP related tech blogs such as WPcentral, WMPoweruser and others..

Hi Kerttu
how long do we wait for the update to 7.8. I have two 610's purchased together, one has received the update, the other has not. How long is the roll-out expected to last? Both phones are set to receive automatic update notification.

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

Hi,

 

I have good news for you all!

 

Delivery of Windows Phone 7.8 continues from today. Those customers who have already updated to 7.8 will get immediate access to the new software which includes the fix for the live tile issue reported by some, and for those who had not previously updated their phones the update will be phased in during the coming weeks.

Re: Updates to Windows Phone 7.8 starting today!

Hi.
Received message software update available, this morning connected my Lumia 800 to my win7 PC, got message to update Zune first. Completely reinstalled Zune after updates failed, when connecting Lumia 800 again I received "Connection Error - Can't connect to your phone. Disconnect it, restart it, then try connecting again."
I have tried several times to disconnect and re-start but without success.
Anyone any ideas or suggestions.
