    I spoke to AT&T's tech support and they claim the 7.8 update is NOT available for the Lumia 900. Just flat out NOT available, and we have to wait until they test it and certify it and all this nonsense.
    And how do they explain all of the Lumia 900 users who got the update at the end of January? Am I living in an alternative universe where I was one of only a handful of people who got the update? Unless they're talking about the newer version of 7.8 that fixes the live tile issue, I can't possibly think of why it's considered "not available."

    you guys are lucky to have missed 7.8 update, It introduces Lag to a perfectly smooth, Lag-free UI of 7.5, so its better to just use the 7.5 for now and later upgrade to WP8.

    It was pulled.

    That means it is no longer available. I fail to see the difficulty in understanding this...

    He said AT&T told him it was "not available," something that has different connotations than your words: "no longer available." One implies it was never released, and the other implies it was once was but is no longer.

    There seems to be a significantly large amount of people in this thread who don't have it, fewer than I would expect. So I got to thinking that they might be claiming it was never available to download and still has yet to be released for the first time. Something I would know to be false since I have the update. That's the impression I got from MinnesotaSteve's quote of the AT&T employee in my previous post.

    I hope I explained myself better for you.

    Just use the seven eighter app and get it. I did it tonight even though I had received the 7.8 update via AT&T automatically. Boom, updated to the latest version of 7.8 that fixed tile issues, done. It literally takes five minutes and is clicking buttons basically.

    I just got a new unit from AT&T with 7.8 already installed ( The sound went out on my first unit ), so I don't see why it's not rolling out to all of the units.

    Yeah, I just got dead ends when talking to AT&T's tech support. It's possibly they're just canned responses to anyone asking about any updates, I don't know.

    But it's incredibly frustrating. I don't feel I should have to run some sort of hack to make this work. I should receive the download from Microsoft. AT&T shouldn't even be involved. I realize that's not the case, and frankly I blame Microsoft for that.

    Good luck, using 7 eighter will come back to bite you in the you know what soon.. Just recently I have been experiencing touch screen issues, lock screen won't unlock etc. I went back to using the original 7.8 that att pushed and I no longer have any issues.

    I had that happen to me on the 900 before even 7.8. Probably not related.

    It makes perfect sense that many phones got updated and placed in boxes that never got shipped out. They aren't going to go through the trouble of downgrading them I'm guessing.

    I send my phone to repair the re-sound(echo) issue when volume is kept above 5 to Nokia Repair Center. I got the phone back with 7.8 update. I believe that is the only thing they did and it fixed the issue. All live tiles and everything works fine with 7.8.

    Since I recently switched back to WP, I figure you guys (and gals) would be a better judge of how accurate the following is. It appears that Nokia US went to their Facebook page yesterday (Sunday 21 April) with the following message:

    "Just a friendly reminder, Windows Phone 7.8 update is soon on its way. A huge thank you to our fans for waiting!"

    Source.

    Has this happened before without the update? Or should I start to get excited?

    Nope, don't think I've ever seen or heard of Nokia actually announcing it. I did see this on Facebook the other day and was surprised as well. Hoping the new firmware with it brings some nice tweaks for our phones such as camera and what not. Sucks that we aren't able to access Navifirm anymore though.

    Ahh the elusive Win 7.8 that is constantly promised but has yet to arrive on my phone.

    I think it's been announced now a dozen times, we'll see if this time they deliver.

    They did deliver, two months ago. It was pulled because of excessive bugs. Stop saying they never delivered because they did.

    So delivering a bug ridden product after months and months of promising counts as "delivering" in your book? Wow...

    Yes for almost 2 months now... You won't be able to update with the trick now anyways, 7.8 was pulled off Nokia's servers and the new update is not there yet. All the trick does is allow you to pull the update through zune rather than Navifirm earlier than when it's pushed officially. See it's not there... Attachment 31327
    Not related to the post but I want to know how did you manage to have light window frame color and a dark taskbar in W8? If I darken the window, the taskbar darkens and if I lighten the window, the taskbar lightens. Your current setting looks cool.
