    I did this last night and it worked well. Its a little harder that just plugging in to Zune but if you are tired of waiting and are a little adventures go for it I did. For me it worked as advertised was fairly simple to do. I will be testing this week and will report back on the results.

    I followed the instructions and had no issues. Orange UK and rumour has it they aren't even looking at this firmware yet so I decided to stop waiting. My battery was okay beforehand to be honest but I wanted the audio improvements. That said it wasn't as good as it is now, I've been running a little test with 3g and wireless off unless required (using the toggle app pinned to start which is a Godsend) and current stats are:

    Remaining : 55%
    Time remaining: 23 hours
    Time since last charge: 1 days 18 hours

    Discharge is around 70 mA

    That's with over 20 texts and maybe 30 mins total phone call time. Plus the odd bit of wireless/3g on when required and the normal checking the phone for messages etc. Hardly scientific but pretty good battery life I thought.

    Just as an update, you can check when your carrier is releasing the update here:

    Nokia Europe - Nokia Lumia 800 software update - Availability

    Still quite a few 'waiting for approval' (including Orange UK)

    Here's one for you. My phone has no update notification, the manual cab files to force the update won't work. My partners phone has been updated though. We have the same model, same network and the phone numbers are consecutive.

    How's that?

    I want the latest updates but seems I have to wait.
