    Just to let you know, I intend to email AT&T about my Focus S, and while I am at will include all Samsung 7.5 devices. So, if I get any response, will let you and other Samsung threads know.

    Well, Xytal, here is my email to AT&T:

    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
    AT&T National Solution Centers


    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 not way worried yet, as there is a promise from Samsung to update all their WP 7.5 devices to 7.8:

    Windows Phone 7.8 Will Be Available For All Current 7.5 Running Samsung Handsets | Redmond Pie

    It is just a matter of when. Just wish I had better news.

    I spoke to Samsung on 2-7-13 and was told the 7.8 update for the Focus 2 would not be out until the end of march. :-(

    End of March! I thought Microsoft was driving this update to all Windows Phone 7.5 devices. Is AT&T the holdup?

    At this point it sounds like March.. which is annoying, seeing as Samsung doesn't really do anything different to the phone. >

    Hi there! I DID!...using the "seven-eighter" tool I was able to update my unlocked Focus 2 with no problems - IMPORTANT: select ALL the Language Packs. The only thing I seem to be missing is the digital time display that is usually in the upper right corner.

    Can confirm I also used the seven-eighter tool to update my Sammy Focus S. Just make sure you check which languages you have installed and check the boxes in the tool and you're good to go. Loving the new start screen and Bing wallpaper updated daily!
