    I think the information contained/linked from within the extras+info settings was updated, thats all.

    I ran this update yesterday and since then my battery life has gone downhill. Not sure if this update is the cause of it but just an FYI.

    i just checked and the update was sitting there waiting for me. date on it is 11/26/2012. i believe this is the 2nd extras+info update we've had since release. no idea what was contained in either of them, but i updated mine.

    so i went to Settings > extras+info

    and it says: Manufacturer Model Name RM-820_nam_att_100

    for those of you that haven't updated, does it say the same thing? why 820 instead of 920?

    I wonder if it could be something with the wifi? I read somewhere that Nokia was including in the 7.8 update the option for wifi always on.

    Microsoft should require a change log for all apps... And adhere to it themselves. It would really help us out.

    I also got this update and it locked up my phone - my 920 reset and was stuck on the NOKIA screen. I had to hold power + volume down to do a soft reset.

    I'm on a Lumia 810 (so nobody gets confused on my model name)

    BEFORE update: AFTER update:

    I see absolutely no other changes anywhere. Wish I knew what this stuff does or what it means. I'm highly curious... it's sitting in my settings menu begging to be looked at :P

    It is the wifi fix, my device is always connected to wifi now, even after being in standby for an hour+ Naturally, nothing listed anywhere confirming this but this morning I noticed a few times when using the phone after standby, the wifi icon was connecting, since the update, that is not happening. Can anyone confirm?

    My guess is that it's the bloatware from AT&T :) Seriously, though, I wonder if it's the additional software customization that the operator needs to remove / fine tune the user experience for their networks. For example, on my Lumia 800 I had full wifi tethering without paying for it because it was a developers device. On my 920 it's looks and works exactly the same way, only now it seems to make an authentication call to AT&T after you switch on the server. Several seconds later it turns off and says I've not pay for the service.

    Therefore I wonder if the "Extras" are were AT&T add these little tweaks. Any one know if the developer devices have this entry?

    Wouldn't be AT&T related, I am in the UK and received the update this afternoon, like I said above, since the update, my wifi is always connected. Cannot see any other changes.

    [s]Hey! It does seem like that! I have NEVER seen the wifi icon on my lock screen, it always lights up right after unlock. I honestly expected some kind of setting for it, not just a silent push of "always on". Good eye!

    This could improve battery life - no more constant disconnecting and reconnecting :)[/s] Never mind, false alarm. It seems to stay connected for a bit longer than usual but it's not staying on ALL the time :(
