    I got a new Focus S through warranty because the last one broke when I tried to force update. So I'm not eager to force again and I know the trick with zune by turning of wireless does not work with WP7 connector for mac. Any ideas?

    Att officially announced its right around the corner, from the 15th to the 19th, so I say just wait. The wifi trick worked awesome for me but only because I have a PC so....

    I, too, am waiting. If AT&T said 15th to the 19th, they must mean of December.

    I was laughing a couple days ago, but it's the 19th now and still showing no update ! :@ I really hate AT&T.

    I've been trying the force update (by disconnecting the lan cable as Zune is checking for updates) with no love. I had no problems updating to 8107 many months ago, but now I'm getting an error 80180048 when it tries to update from 8107 to 8112. I used the long cab sender method to get to 8107... what do you think, should I head down that road again, or wait for AT&T to roll out the update ?

    I have heard too many stories like Silverdogs where forcing the update crashed the device. I am sure it is only a small % of those who do it that have trouble, as I have heard way more success stories. But, I also know what kind of luck I have. I want to wait.

    I am planning to send AT&T an email to see if the update is pending. Will pass on to all what I hear.

    I think his problem is likely related to how he did the previous update.

    To all: Here is the copy of the Email I received from AT&T:

    "My name is Rebecca with AT&Ts email Customer Service Team. We have
    received your email regarding available software updates and I
    appreciate the opportunity to assist you today.

    I was able to find the following information regarding software updates
    for the Samsung Focus S:

    Microsoft has developed a supplemental update for the Samsung Focus
    Flash and Samsung Focus S Windows Phone 7.5 devices and is scheduled to
    begin making the update available to AT&T customers beginning June 27,
    2012. The update supports MMS enhancements and other fixes.

    To help ensure quality, Microsoft is releasing the update in controlled
    batch quantities over several days. During the initial rollout period,
    the update is only available to customers once they receive a
    notification that an update is available on their device. The update is
    available to all AT&T customers with existing Samsung Focus Flash and
    Samsung Focus S devices."

    It then goes on to list the steps we already know concerning the Zune player. I also asked about my Wife's HTC Titan, and no update is scheduled for them. So, I will of course pass this on to the Focus Flash and Titan threads.

    So it was supposed to start already. June 27th. Feel better she actually gave a year.......

    I think I may switch carriers just because of this because now I'm P.Oed. I'm just glad I still had warranty but now I'm on 7740. I liked not having my keyboard disappear.

    I suspect you're correct. I think I may have only updated the US English along with the software updates back in January or whenever that was.
    I went back and re-sent all the updated language cabs (up to the 8107) and that worked without any errors. I was getting the same error using the cab sender as I was getting with Zune when trying to update previously.

    Then since Zune is finally reporting an update available without resorting to any tricks, I let it update.... success ! Hope that helps anyone else who may have been getting the 80180048 update error code.
