    Im with EE uk and still no notification for the update. The only reason im not forcing the update is purely because i shouldnt have to do that.

    I asked EE on twitter how long it will be and they said " We are hoping to have the release out asap.." Nokia basically said the same...

    Annoys me how poorly the whole situation has been handled and just makes you realise how badly MS has treated its early adopters of WP as a whole.

    Cant wait till my contract ends tbh so i can just get an IPhone.

    My aunt's Lumia 800 just got a notification of an update today which has me confused. Have they re-started the roll-out?

    Either way, I'm holding off on updating her till we get some official confirmation.

    This release provides the following benefits and enhancements for your smartphone.

    • Fixed a problem that could cause some Live Tiles that use daily or monthly update frequencies to consume excessive amounts of data by incorrectly opening multiple data requests.
    • Fixed a problem that could prevent Live Tiles from being updated after a third party app with Live Tiles is unpinned from the Start menu.

    NOTE: Microsoft is releasing this update in stages. Your smartphone will receive a notification when this update becomes available to you.

    As of today, still no 7.8 update available for the Telus 800. My friend with a Wind 710 got the update (and the 7.5 Refresh update became available to both of us so I don't know...)

    Haven't been able to get it to work here in the US either (straight talk).
    I have a Nokia Lumia 800 that I use on AT&T MVNO "Straight Talk". I am a bit confused about wether I will get the update to WP 7.8 or not as it's my understanding that this is pushed by the carrier.


    Any insight?

    Nothing here in the USA either!

    Given up, really. Very, VERY poor job by MSFT in managing expectations and letting each country/region know what to exect & when.

    Gone back to using my Galaxy Nexus (Verizon) and quite pleased as it turns out. Even just got an unexpected Jellybean 4.2.2 update out of the blue!!!

    OK... First - apologies for being a tad cranky with MSFT (you'll see why).

    The good news is just now I finally did get the WP 7.8 update.... or should I say 5 updates! That's right, MSFT in their infinite wisdom makes you go through not one or even two but five downloads and five installs and five boots to get you from Tango 7993 to WP 7.8 8862. I've had an iPhone (boring interface now but quite easy and fast update process) and still own a Galaxy Nexus Android phone (OTA - one download and update to go from ICS to Jellybean).

    Five separate and distinct updates (taking close to 90 minutes) to get to a "small upgrade" like WP 7.8???

    Really MSFT ; you must be able to do better ... in fact you have to do better, this is very, VERY sub-par. I've always loved Windows Phone and have always spoken it favor of it but this entire WP 7.8 process makes me wonder???

    Gggrr, still no update available on my Telus Lumia as of today. How's it running on yours? Does it drain battery quicker?

    It seems a little quicker. There is some lag when im moving around the small tiles but other than that, im liking it. Im not sure about the battery life yet, I will have a better idea after a few more days of use.

    O2 (UK) said in their forum, that it should be released by the end of this month. Wonder where I heard that before Nokia - Windows Phone 7.8 *RELEASED* - Page 11 - O2 Community

    I don't know how you got it so early. As of today, still no update through Zune. Any update on your usage mileage?

    I guess I was on one of the first waves of updates...As far as battery, not quite as good as before but still usually makes it through the day. Data usage has been the same, I thought it would be higher but its not.
