7.8 update for Nokia Lumina 900 WHEN?

Just got an email from Rogers telling me the benefits of upgrading from 7.5 to 8 and why i should upgrade. What? They haven't even done the 7.5 update yet, and when I talked to tech support they said they had no idea when the 7.5 update will arrive.

Rogers seems clueless on this as their own email assumed I already had 7.5.

Anyone know what is going on here?

7.8 update for Nokia Lumina 900 WHEN?

Hello funkydmunky

Rogers has NOT released the 7.8 update for the Lumia 900. The tech support agents tell you what they know. Which device was the email referring too?

The email didn't mention any device, it just stated the benefits of WP8 over WP7.5, and that "I should upgrade today!"

I thought this was stupid as their hasn't been the 7.5 update yet, which is extremely late, and tech support has no clue when it will be available. What is the hold up?

Dont expect the update to come anytime soon. Rogers is known to take months to update a device. Remember, the Lumia 920 and the HTC 8X is out. They rather have you upgrade to those phones.

They claim in takes long because of them "testing" the update on their network. I call that BS as it does NOT take months to test a update.

Huh? 7.5 is Mango if I'm correct and the Lumia 900 runs that by default. If you are talking about Tango, you are better off forcing that update through Zune and I recall seeing that Rogers was pushing that out not too long ago. I also wouldn't expect 7.8 for a while unless you are daring enough to put a custom ROM or load up RTM on your device (which should be available by January).

 

Disregard this message if you weren't referring to the OS updates.

The Lumia 900 is running OS7.5 at the moment. I am guessing you never got the update OR you have it BUT want the 7.8 one.

Re: 7.8 update for Nokia Lumina 900 WHEN?

To prevent any further confusion: Microsoft stupidly called the 7.5 updates 7.1. This update has been available to all WP7 users since September 2011. In Settings>about>more info, if you are on OS version 7.1.7720 or higher, you have Windows Phone 7.5. I really hope they never do this again because it's been nothing but **bleep** for people supporting the product since people are unsure if they're on 7.5 or not.

 

Now, NO CARRIER has released any information about 7.8 because Microsoft itself has not released it. It's slated for "early 2013" at this point. Please read the Windows Phone Blog's update on 7.8.

That should be correct. Microsoft is confusing everything with this. They need to really sit down & realize to name it what they are calling it. Not change the name for customers & say its 7.5 meanwhile we have 7.1
