    It is rolling out in stages, you should get it before the end of the month for sure. If you want to get it now, Google search "windows phone Zune update trick". It will give you directions on how to get it manually.

    Being that there isn't that many Lumia 900's out there this update should have been out in one day for everybody and we shouldn't have to resort to tricks to get the update. Here it is February 21st and no update here in Denver, Co area.
    Since MS and Nokia have cleared 7.8 it now appears ATT is holding this up ..as usual.
    I'm not even sure I want it being that a lot of apps are not being updated to use the different tile sizes and many people are reporting live tile issues..
    Remember WP 7.x is now in legacy status!!

    Yeah 3 weeks and counting is a frustrating wait. My carrier here in New Zealand told me the update was tested and approved for their network in mid Dec so its all down to Microsoft to flick the switch on it. Can't really understand the holdup given the relatively few users

    Nokia says this update should have had rolled out like within 3 weeks: Get even more from your Nokia Lumia with Windows Phone 7.8 – Nokia Conversations : the official Nokia blog
    And they ask us to contact the carrier if we dont get an update within the 3 weeks. ATT customer support plays dumb to WP 7.8 or atleast acts it that way.
    Way to go Microsoft. This is how you treat the people who bought your Windows phones when no one else did.

    Same problem here. I have the Lumia 900 with AT&T and I got nothing. Tried the fancy unplug trick but it doesn't work for me.

    I'm not sure how much help this is but I remember reading that if you lived near a Microsoft Store you could take your phone there and get it updated. Worth a call to see/
