    Hi all,

    I just read this: LG will not be releasing Windows Phone 7.8 for the LG E900 Optimus 7 | WMPoweruser

    Is it possible for them to prevent the update? I was under the impression everyone on 7.5 got 7.8 straight from MS.

    LOL! Why am I not surprised, my Optimus 7 the most neglected of all WP7 phones won't get OEM updated. Screw it! I'll just get a custom ROM when it's out.

    BTW! Why wouldn't the Optimus 7 get the update? It's not like it will be an OA update, it'll come through Zune directly from Microsoft right? Maybe we shouldn't make such a big deal of it yet, better wait until all the 7.8 cards are on the table.

    It's been out 2 years guys. I'm not outraged, it was to be expected. Doubt the Dell Venue Pro will see 7.8 either.

    All the more reason to upgrade now.

    Thanks that helps a lot for people who still have a year left on Contract and can't just upgrade to a new phone.

    I contacted LG last night to see if they would be releasing 7.8 for the Quantum, and got a very similar response. I've posted it in the LG Quantum forum. Wp7.8 possible unavailability for quantum

    Surprised because AFAIK, LG don't even have to lift a finger for this update. Same for Tango, which I DID get on my E900. They'd only have to do something if they wanted to update the actual firmware of the device which they didn't do when I got Tango.

    Again, surprised and not fully believing it just yet.


    EDIT: Completely off-topic, but I just realised this forum has a cool feature that defines what an abbreviation means. My "AFAIK" is underlined with its definition showing when you hover over it. Cool!

    guys don't fret. Microsoft could make this update available if they really want to. Same for Dell. Dells DID get Tango without any intervention from Dell. There is no new firmware to be had from either so this is just an OS update. The question is whether ATT will flip the switch. It is those F-ing bastards EVERYONE needs to be worried about.

    Unless you get a flagship Android phone then your chances of getting the latest update is slim. Furthermore, Microsoft is making the update available for all OEMs, but if LG isn't going to lift a finger then the solution is to stop supporting LG, not Windows Phone.

    Awesome. It seems like only carriers in the U.S. haven't released the update yet. Hopefully someone can confirm if U.S. carriers released it.
