    Expected, it's too late for 8107 with Tango at the door. It was probably their strategy anyway, Microsoft does allow carriers to bypass hotfixes.

    Don't worry though, major updates (Tango) are mandatory and it will probably be released in early April.

    Ah, you have way more faith in those morons at AT&T than they deserve, my friend.

    Are Nokia devices treated any differently on AT&T as far as updates? I would think a hero device like the Lumia 900 wouldn't be abandoned for updates that roll out over the next few months.

    Is Tango even a major update? Microsoft seems to be saying it is just a minor tweak (refresh)

    no, tango is not a major update but being a refresh makes it a significant one. I doubt carriers will pass.

    So hundreds of thousands of users have to suffer with a disappearing keyboard needlessly for many more weeks or months (or possibly forever) because of AT&Ts laziness. Meaning, basically no technical reason to not push out the update. They are lucky we are loyal followers. If there was a viable option things would be different.

    Its called optimism that when they rollout the tango update it will include as in thge past updates an update to 7740 an update to 8107 and the tango 87 whatever . Until that happens or doesnt happen why worry and fret do your best to be happy today! Dont worry over things you have no control over. Its pointless and debilitating! And its just a smartphone!

    Just got it from tmobile so dunno what you mean too late. That keyboard bug is critical and can cause returns or make people consider other devices.

    Luckily, the process outlined by the tutorial works quite nicely, and the update is quick, and painless.

    However, you may need to update the WPSupportTools, and in that case:

    Download for x86

    and people ask why I would buy the 900 unlocked rather than the att lte model. No lte remotely close and h+ is awesome in my area

    so I have done the .cab update method on my Focus S and it seems to be working fine. BUT I only included the english language files in the update process. could this cause a problem? better yet - could I remove all those extra language packs that I will not be using and gain a little more free space??? (if so - how?)

    TIA

    Until proven otherwise I believe that the 7740 and 8107 will come with the tan go update which ATT will release!

    Didn't AT$T say they were going to be the first carrier to release mango? It was actually T-mobile. Interesting how things change.

    I hate this crap with att. They only cater to apple it seems. MS made the update work with the OS on all phones on the market. What changes has att made to their phones that prohibits them from rolling it out? And they still do not have vvm either.

    Hi guys, AT&T rep in the family, he's a regional rep not store. He basically told me that all phones from htc titan2 and lumia will be receiving updates in a timely manner. He said that lumia is already scheduled for apollo. Believes titan2 will get it as well. He said previous phones may get mango if they can support it. Hope this helps

    I think its too early to know the answer to that as their havent been any updates for the Nokia 900 yet and the phones not due for release until April 8 or 9.

    I love how people make excuse for AT&T. All they had to do was request the update. This is NOT a painstaking process. 1. Request 2. Done

    AT&T knows that people with the money to do so will just buy another (new) device. But ignore those stuck on 2 yr. contracts with an outdated OS. It's hard to see how some people STILL have so much faith in AT&T. And for those people, can you even OFFICIALLY tell us why they're not releasing it? Didn't think so....

    Some people act like this update is pointless. It not only fixes the keyboard issue, but also various security issues, as well as a bug with google. Nevertheless Microsoft doesn't just make updates for the **** of it, I'm sure ANY update they release is beneficial in some way or another, and not meant to be blocked by carriers. If you don't care how your phone operates and are happy with no update it's probably because you only use it to make calls or just don't know how a smartphone is supposed to operate. Especially if a fix is readily available.

    The securityu fix was not necessary for most ATT phones from my understanding. As far as the keyboard fix I have never experienced the disappearing keyboard issue so I dont have any pressing need for the updates. There is a workaround with the background agents that seems to have cured much ot if. I would speculate that the reason for not releasing 8107 is due to the above and also due to the impending release next month of tango which if true to the past will bring those prior updates not released by ATT to all devices. Thats what I expect and believe it will hapenn until I see otherwise.

    Verizon hasn't release the update either. I hate the way my keyboard disappears! Hopefully tango comes out and fixes it, this is by far the worst part of my phone.
