Yes for almost 2 months now... You won't be able to update with the trick now anyways, 7.8 was pulled off Nokia's servers and the new update is not there yet. All the trick does is allow you to pull the update through zune rather than Navifirm earlier than when it's pushed officially. See it's not there...

Just some info. Had to return my 900 for a warranty replacement. Mine had the 7.8 upgrade on it (had to do the Zune trick). When the replacement came it didn't have the 7.8. Tried the Zune trick and obviously didn't work. So I call AT&T and was transferred to tech support. Was told the 7.8 upgrade has been pulled and is no longer available due to numerous customer complaints of issues with the upgrade. She had no idea when or if the upgrade would be available again, if at all. So if you have AT&T and you didn't get the upgrade you won't. This probably explains why I had to return my 900 in the first place. Thanks Microsoft and Nokia. Due for an upgrade in September, so it looks like iPhone for me.

I read a few messages over on the AT&T forums that apparently AT&T is not releasing the 7.8 update to those of us who bought devices prior to the announcement of Windows 8.
That's what people are being told when they call AT&T about it.
I'm getting to the point where I've pretty much had it with both Windows Phone and AT&T. T-Mobile and a Galaxy S III is looking quite attractive.
Found the thread...

Actually 8862 fixed the issues from 8858. 8860 was a build that dealt with Quartz and some Google specific changes. The issues were dealing with the rendering of Live Tiles specifically conditions that could cause them to not function correctly and/or eat data.

I'm going to the AT&T store tonight about this. The lack of support for this phone is really pissing me off. I'm going to look into how much an early termination will cost me so I can get an iphone.

AT&T has been absolutely terrible when it comes to updating any of their Windows Phone. Their failures at updating/supporting their WPs goes all the way to the original Samsung Focus. It's sad that AT&T was ever considered the "premier" carrier."Engineering is more than just the number of megapixels." - Stephen Elop

I have zero faith in any more 7.8 updates. Its absurd, couldn't get first one right, and im sure we won't see anything else. And with me having at&t, im sure it's a safe bet my L900 has all ready seen its very last update, long ago.

Wondering if the users who unlocked their AT&T lumia 900 will get the update once at&t releases. I also have an unlocked at&t one X for which at&t didnt release the JB update , I had to manually download the file and update to jelly bean. They said you require an active at&t sim to get the updates . If that indeed happens what are the options ... navifirm ?

I tried upgrading my dad's ATT Lumia 900 last night and was surprised that it wasn't available. Then I found this forum. Fortunately, he doesn't care. I am hopeful for the rest of you that it will come as the Lumia 900 has not reached End of Life yet.

Nope. I have my phone on straight talk. I contacted at&t and they said they have no idea when it's coming and that MS has a webpage for the windows phone. They said if anything connect the phone to Zune and check for updates.

Hope they fix this soon. In my experience it seems AT&T doesn't much care for WP. If it's not a high end Android their not very expedient. The again, when I had the Samsung Captivate Glide the ICS update took so long I had to just go ahead and switch to the GS2. In any case the carrier seemed a lot more interested, knowledgeable, and enthused about the Galaxy updates than the Windows Phone.
04-07-2013, 01:28 AM #25I thought 8860/8862 was available for unlocked phones on Zune. Did they pull those too?

My phone has updated multiple times via Zune. I don't rely on carriers for anything except their service, because they don't want to release updates. Android is a good example of that. If you want updates, you have to go the OS makers / owners.
