    I am making the rounds with this Email I sent to AT&T. My Wife owns the T2, so I of course have a strong interest in keeping her happy and seeing the T2 get 7.8. Here is the Email:

    Q3:Please enter your phone question below:
    A3:My wife, myself, and several of my friends have Windows Phones
    devices. We are curious to what information we can get concerning the
    WP 7.8 update pending for our devices. I have the Samsung Focus S, my
    wife has the HTC Titan 2, and my friends have Samsung Focus 2 and the
    Focus Flash. Any information on when we can see this update? The Nokia
    900 is already recieving it, and we are curious.

    Thank you for your time.

    And here is AT&T's not so encouraging response:

    Unfortunately at this time we do not have a date for the Windows 7.8
    update for the devices you mentioned. For more information on Windows
    updates you can visit Windows support website at
    Support - Microsoft Windows Help.

    I apologize for any trouble this may have caused. If there is anything
    else we can assist you with please feel free to contact us again. Thank
    you for being an AT&T customer.


    Sincerely,

    Julie Jones

    I did go to Microsoft, but their Web site is among the least user friendly you will EVER try to surf. As far as I can tell, there are only generic "coming features", and I have had no luck finding a place to email a rep. I will continue to look though.

    I am a little more concerned about the T2, and all other HTC WP7 devices, then I am about the Samsung ones due to several sources confirming Sammy has every intention of updating their 7.5's to 7.8. I have heard zero from HTC about the Titan, T2, or Radar, much less alll their earlier devices.

    I will feel a ton better when I hear something coming through the pipeline. Until then, wish I had more rock solid information.

    So I updated my Titan II to 7.8 via the manual method, very easy to do.

    So, does this update finally fix the inability to edit your own MMS settings? No

    All you get is the new tile system and the new xbox live logo. What an absolute disappointment to wait all this time for so little.

    Never again will I purchase an HTC product.

    This worked for me!! ATT Focus S locked

    http://www.windowscentral.com/tool-m...-update-easier

    You need to do it 3 times. Select all the languages except Indonesian and Malaysian each time for the focus S, only get the languages that are already on your phone. Each time after you phone restarts, the computer program may crash, but just close it and reopen it and do it all again. That's it

    I used the method linked above on my old Titan 2 tonight with success. Cycled through the process several times applying the incremental updates ATT never gave us and about 30 minutes later, I had no right side gutter and adjustable size tiles.

    Just wanted to say I followed instructions in the link and now my titan 2 is sporting 7.8..
    Other than resizeable tiles and more tile colors...I see no difference either.

    updated with the seven-eighter tool from wphacker. update went smooth. the only thing i noticed was a slight lag open inboxes, so far. battery may be draining a bit faster too.
