Well, Xytal, here is my email to AT&T:
Q3:Please enter your phone question below:
A3:My wife, myself, and several of my friends have Windows Phones
devices. We are curious to what information we can get concerning the
WP 7.8 update pending for our devices. I have the Samsung Focus S, my
wife has the HTC Titan 2, and my friends have Samsung Focus 2 and the
Focus Flash. Any information on when we can see this update? The Nokia
900 is already recieving it, and we are curious.
Thank you for your time.
And here is AT&T's not so encouraging response:
Unfortunately at this time we do not have a date for the Windows 7.8
update for the devices you mentioned. For more information on Windows
updates you can visit Windows support website at Support - Microsoft Windows Help.
I apologize for any trouble this may have caused. If there is anything
else we can assist you with please feel free to contact us again. Thank
you for being an AT&T customer.

I did go to Microsoft, but their Web site is among the least user friendly you will EVER try to surf. As far as I can tell, there are only generic "coming features", and I have had no luck finding a place to email a rep. I will continue to look though. I am not way worried yet, as there is a promise from Samsung to update all their WP 7.5 devices to 7.8:
Windows Phone 7.8 Will Be Available For All Current 7.5 Running Samsung Handsets | Redmond Pie
It is just a matter of when. Just wish I had better news.I find your lack of faith disturbing. - Darth Vader

Hi there! I DID!...using the "seven-eighter" tool I was able to update my unlocked Focus 2 with no problems - IMPORTANT: select ALL the Language Packs. The only thing I seem to be missing is the digital time display that is usually in the upper right corner.

Can confirm I also used the seven-eighter tool to update my Sammy Focus S. Just make sure you check which languages you have installed and check the boxes in the tool and you're good to go. Loving the new start screen and Bing wallpaper updated daily!
