Still 7740 on T-Mobile - Not that bothered about this update me wants the latest Nokia firmware... Well only if it actually fixes my battery life issues.
I guess the only thing in 8107 would be the keyboard focus issue but It rarely bothers me... Well it bothers me less than a Battery saver kicking in after 12 hours of no real use.

well i do have the keyboard problem quite regularly and the music player won't go past track 4 unless you keep the phone unlocked. Nothing on t-mobile too eh. Looks like everything everywhere are are going to give us nothing nowhere.

Got the 8107 update here also. I'm on Three.
I was originally annoyed at the idea of update releases being down to the carrier but, if there is a positive to be gained from the situation, it does at least show which carriers appear to be committed to WP7 and - to a wider extent - how much of a priority they give to supporting devices on their network with the latest updates.
I was thinking of moving from Three once my contract is up, but I think I'll stay with them - so long as I can get the phone I want - as their update process seems to be pretty quick.

It's very telling that Orange (inc. T-Mobile as Everything Everywhere) are the last network to roll out the update.
Many are saying that this just fixes the keyboard bug but there are security and privacy fixes too - surely these are of significant importance to users even if they're not too bothered about the update themselves (with all due respect, why should they be? It's not asbout new features so interest will be low). It's up to Microsoft to ensure the OS is secure, which they've done, and the networks to ensure the security of their customers by deploying Microsoft's update.
All networks appear to have done this with the exception of Orange.
Couple that with ignoring my CS requests and their 3G network seemingly broken in my area and I really can't stick with them. Come June, I'm out. Question is, which network? And will they have the Nokia 900 ;)

Also, AFAIK no UK network has enabled visual voicemail for WP or Android yet. I'm sure throwing in the API's can't take that long.

@MattPGA Hi Matt, we do not know when it will be coming out on Orange. It will be currently with the software developers undergoing tests.

Well its not really surprising seeing as they can't even get their own website to work properly. Your orange app has been broken for weeks too

Problem with that plan is the upfront cost of the phone, so I may be looking for a less flash phone, but so be it. Even the Lumia 710 seems good, and it's only £150.

I just got 8107 today on my Lumia 800 on T-Mobile.
It should be available now.
And yes, T-Mobile suck with updates, even when I asked in store, the sales people told me to use the Ovi suite and update from there.Soup R' Crackers is the fastest growing non-poultry, non-coffee franchise in all of Southern California!

I'm still on 7740 on my Omnia 7 - T-Mobile, I occasionaly get the keyboard bug and the phone crash while playing music but not often enough to be an annoyance. However it is annoying that a fix is out there and not knowing when it will be out. MS is quick to talk about Android fragmentation but need to put their own house in order first.
