    So, just to keep track of who's got the 7.8 rollout - anyone got it yet on their Lumia 800?

    If so, what country/network are you on?

    (I'm in the UK on Orange/EE - not here yet).

    Third time lucky, it's installing as i type! OS 7.10.8858.136 described as new smart screen with sizeable tiles , new lock screen featuring Bing, 20 accent colours etc. Yes! ;-)
    Keep trying people, it is there, it's just a bit fiddly to get zune to show it but don't give up and you'll be happy with result I'm sure. We've waited long enough for it or you could wait for proper notification to come through whenever that will be....

    I have a SIM free phone (o2 is my service provider) but still no update in the UK.

    I came across the region availabilty on the Nokia website here: Availability in Europe - Nokia

    I'm confused as to why the version numbers are slightly different for o2 compared to some of the others. E.g o2's latest version is 8852.12430 whereas EE is 8858.12460

    Plug into Zune and check for updates in settings, not on the phone.

    I got it this morning. On 3 in the UK Lumia 800. Bluetooth file transfer doesn't work though. The app gives me the message not compatible with my version of Windows Phone and says connect to Zune to update to the latest software? Loving the new look, and the new colours!

    Bummer! Not getting any up-date info at the mo' on my Lumia 800. Just out of interest, asked my wife to see if there was an up-date for her 710..... and there is. She had no time to up-date as she was off to a girls night out. And 3 hours later I am getting more infuriated at the lack of an up-date and that I can't get the "cable trick" to work. So will probably go to bed very frustrated that I didn't buy a 710 ;0)

    I'm on an unlocked E-plus variant (German carrier) phone in Sweden and I got the update a few days ago. Three in total with 7.8 being the last.

    I plugged in my Lumia 800 late last night to sync some files and after the sync it told me there were updates available.

    The first one was to do with regional purchases from the store and some miscellaneous fixes. The second update was the biggie 7.8, and the third was something to do with camera buttons.
    I did have the Mango update before this.

    I'm in the UK and on T-Mobile (EE).

    The whole process took about 2 hours to complete as it backed up the phone before progressing.

    My friend who is on Orange (EE), has not yet been updated.

    I had the notifications enabled on the phone, but they didn't announce anything. It was ONLY after a Zune sync that the updates were offered.
