Not on my Surround.Tango update appears to be going to 2nd generation devices first. The way AT&T operates we'll be lucky to have it before MS pushes 7.8 OTA update, if ever. If we don't have Tango by then I'm not sure if 7.8 would be applied.
This would leave many users out of the loop, those who do not wish or are unable to install cabs, unbrand or unlock their phones.
I'm considering downgrading my bootloader and installing a fully unlocked custom rom. Hopefully I don't brick the phone. I have tinkered with it before using ChevrobLabs and interop unlock. My tech skills are not top notch but I am sick and tired of the lack of carrier support. The least these chuckle heads could do is to keep your phone up to date while you are under contract. This is entirely possible, but their lack of commitment is highly evident.

Software updates*|* Phones & Devices*|* Support*|* TELUS Mobility
Their software update page removes surround from recent updates today (not a good sign) and their future updates PDF hasn't been updated since August 9th
edit: their PDF just got updated to "early September"

I just tweeted Telus hoping that Telus will do something sooner, I told them im getting tired of them changing their PDF every time. Lets hope my tweet gets something pushed through, i'll update you in the next week when their PDF gets updated again or when they push the update. Hopefully we get it any day now!

Still haven't received Tango update. =/ Every time I ask AT&T they send me to HTC and vice versa. No one has ever given me an answer to my question. :mad:
I still have the 7720 update which is the initial Windows 7.5 release. So far there's been 3 updates since then. Granted I know not all phones receive the update but you would think the one that actually has to do with messaging and such would get pushed to the Surround.
