    Btw, aside from the OS and firmware, the radio was also updated to 2.1.74.22 from 2.1.75.10 (L900 out of the box).

    Oh, and the iHeartRadio, WiFi always on still works.

    Btw, you can attach ringtones to a text, but only those you created or downloaded. And I tried a few different videos (720-High) and 20-21 seconds appears to be the limit. When I tried 24sec, I got an error.

    Anyone else have problems with the update? I get to step 6 of 10, phone restarts than an image of the phone with a usb cable going to a pc appears on my phone screen and the update seems to stop. Any help would be appreciated.

    Are you using a desktop or a laptop?

    In Device Manager>Universal Serial Bus Controllers>USB Root Hub, double click each Root hub and then click Power Management. Make sure the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is not checked.

    I had the same situation. I was trying to update using a netbook and a $.99 usb cable :)

    Switched to a full-sized PC and a quality USB cable, and it updated without issue...

    If you are using a laptop or netbook the following will help:

    In Device Manager>Universal Serial Bus Controllers>USB Root Hub, double click each Root hub and then click Power Management. Make sure the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is not checked.

    Which USB ports are you using: front or back?

    Try the setting I gave:

    In Device Manager>Universal Serial Bus Controllers>USB Root Hub, double click each Root hub and then click Power Management. Make sure the box "Allow the computer to turn off this device to save power" is not checked.

    Don't remember the step number (6 or 7) but the actual update install (8773 and Firmware) showed no indication anything was happening and took a good 10-15 minutes for 8773 and nearly 10 for the Firmware. I was getting nervous but then things started moving. Update 8779 went real quick.

    Did you verify the USB Root Hub power management settings in Device Manager?

    Didn't have any problems and had indications through all the different updates. May want to be sure there isn't a background process running, like defrag or virus scan.

    The only reason I wanted Tango was for Internet Sharing. I have a 3gig data plan with AT&T. Anyway I updated to Tango and tried to turn the sharing on. It says I have to call AT&T :( I suppose they want to screw me some more.
    You know the complete BS about all this? I'm NOT even with ATT!!!! This is the EXACT reason they should have NO PART of the testing process, because their "testing" involves inserting a shim between the user and native functionality on the phone. F THEM!

    I was updated to the 5 gig plan for only $5 more per month from my old plan and this included the tethering option. The offered this during the rollout of the Lumia 900 and glad I purchased it since I use tethering quite a bit when I am on the road.

    From the update point of view my phone updated yesterday as a guest account on my work machine with no issues. It took about 45 minutes and received all 3 packages. I really like the flip phone over to silence.

    I concur with others have said about the camera. Color reproduction and exposure seems tweaked for the better. Hopefully I'll take some pics when it's not cloudy and rainy outside.

    Is flip-to-silence on by default? I can't seem to find it in the settings menu.

    Yes it is. You can't toggle it ON or OFF. Always ON.

    Auto brightness seems vastly improved.

    Inside camera pics have much truer color (and brighter).

    Screen seems more responsive (not that I had any complaints about that before).

    If the volume buttons work--reliably--under the lock screen, I will be very happy....
    Volume buttons under lock-screen worked flawlessly last night at the gym. Yea !

    Auto brightness actually useful now.

    Overall phone reception seems to have improved. I think I have better call reception in otherwise weak areas. Data, web page loads, seem much faster, too.

    I suppose the camera could still be better, but I think the phone is now (finally) working as advertised...

    Pulled the updates yesterday afternoon. No problem. Actually there were three updates 1) takes you to 7.10.8773.98
    2) takes you to 7,10,8779,8
    3) FW update to 2175-2301.8779.12223
    and a mysterious Nokia update?
    All in all, took around 30minutes on out very fast internet service. I was actually pleasantly surprised that AT&T rolled them out so soon after the release.

    Another fix is searching for weather using Bing and clicking on it actually brings you to the correct page :D

    So I got the firmware update but no 8779 update is showing up for my Rogers Lumia 900. Has anyone on Rogers been able to get the 8779 update?
