Windows 7.8 Update for Nokia Lumia 800


can anyone please explain to me about this update?

I have friends with the nokia lumia 800 and they have theirs all updated but mine just will not! 

I have looked through the availability in Europe page on the nokia site itself, and under United Kindom. 

My Lumia 800 is a mangenta one ( dont know if that has any difference) But I bought it unlocked to any network from phones 4 U. I have put my orange/EE sim in it. I know that it says the update is carrier dependant, to which I phoned orange/EE and they had no idea what I was talking about, and said they werent even aware of such an update. So I looked again on the availability and it said unlocked lumia's would get it first........ 


The firmware revison number is: 1750.0805.8773.12220

Which would indicate it was a vodafone phone, but I bought it unlocked?

Im just wanting to know is there an update in sight for my lumia? as anyone i have contacted is completely useless! 

I have even tried to force the update through zune as people have said it worked for theirs, but just wont for me. Ive done this before with my WP HD7 and it worked fine.

Okay, my phone finally popped up with the update notification. Plugged it into my laptop and opened zune, and checked for updates, it said my phone was up to date -.-
