I think you figured it out! That must be it, although my friend who has my phone didn't get her update, and she's in an LTE area according the ATT's map, but maybe the map is wrong.
For anyone curious:
You can see LTE coverege here by clicking on the yellow dots: AT&T 4G LTE - Get 4G Speed with AT&T 4G LTE & 4G HSPA+
I hope you all get your updates soon!! The smaller tiles make a huge difference when it comes to organizing your tiles--it's really nice and don't forget too that if you have your picture tile on random, it now just uses the photos from your favorites album....LOVE that feature! Every time I turn on my phone, I get to see a different photo I love.
Surely you'll have it by the end of the month? I hope it's just a temporary glitch.

Got the 7.8 update day of release via Zune disconnect trick, then updated our 2 Focii via Rogers Registry change. Very happy with the new software as we shop for new phones this summer. Having a hard time deciding between the 920 and waiting for new phones in the fall. A good problem to have.

What worked for me:
I got a notification saying a new update was available.
I plugged my phone into my computer and updated through Zune.
Wi-Fi was turned on (though not sure this made a difference).
After the update (not 7.8), I was informed there was another update available, which was odd--I don't know why Zune didn't install all the updates at once.
I repeated the steps above.
I kept running into an error message when it was trying to intstall the 7.8 update.
I restarted my phone and my computer, which fixed the problem, and I had a new phone...well...a new homescreen anyway! :-)
I was disappointed in the news of our phones not getting the WP8 update, but at least they gave us the 7.8 update with the option for different tile sizes, which for me, was the major appeal for WP8. I loved 7.5, but 7.8 is just so awesome....LONG LIVE WINDOWS PHONE!!! Off-Topic: I read up on how WP is doing today, because I would be so bummed in the future if I had to switch over to Android or iPhone...nice platforms, but WP is such a breeze to work with...it's perfect for my needs. Though it's slow to grow in the market, it looks like WP is here for the long-haul...good news! :)

Still no update for me (Lumia 900 on ATT).
I have done this--> Tip: How to add EDGE/3G/4G selector to your Nokia Lumia 900 settings | WMPoweruser to add the E/3G/4G options to my phone and I am usually on EDGE since I have a limited data plan.
Wonder if this affects in anyway. I mean, are you supposed to be on LTE for your phone to be eligible for an update?

I definitely agree with Dethzilla that nobody should be having to use 3rd party software, scripts, etc. for this. However, it was announced that the update would be given out sometime this month, February, and well, it's still February. :) My guess is that for whatever reason, and despite how unfair it is, they just can't send the updates to all users, all at once, even for users of the same phone. :( At least that's what I hope is going on. Hopefully in a couple weeks, everyone will have their updates! I have a friend with a 900 who is waiting as well. It's worth the wait--7.8 rocks!!!

I was happy to see my phone say "New update available" 2 days ago..
Today it still said update available, until I plugged it into ZUNE click update and now it says NO UPDATE AVAILABLE!
Way to tease AT&T !!!!
I guess I missed my rolled window and have to wait for the next window! Still stuck at 7.10.8779.8
It was only 2 days on notice!

I am still waiting here :( I have tried updating many times with the windows phone mac software but get nothing. Im using a Lumia 800 on the UK EE network. I have rang them and nokia and phones 4 u where I purchased and they just say they dont know. I'm getting really frustrated now I have waited for the best part of a year since then announced it last year for it to come. Its bad enough that they decided not to push wp8 onto the older lumia devices which to be fair are not even old yet...

I tried and tried to force the update with no success, then finally decided to use seveneighter. All went well
and immediately after booting up from the seveneighter install, Zune told me there was an update available.
Installed it, and am now up to date. (AT&T, North Carolina).

Anybody having Live Tile problems when using 78'er? I used that method to update wife's Titan I and now the only 3 tiles that were pinned stopped updating. USAT, Weather Channel, and CNN. Un-install, reboot, re-install, re-pin no help..
That is why I prefer not to force 7.8 on my Lumia 900 because I have enough tile problems as is..

Nokia says this update should have had rolled out like within 3 weeks: Get even more from your Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 7.8 – Nokia Conversations : the official Nokia blog
And they ask us to contact the carrier if we dont get an update within the 3 weeks. ATT customer support plays dumb to WP 7.8 or atleast acts it that way.
Way to go Microsoft. This is how you treat the people who bought your Windows phones when no one else did.
