Windows Phone 7.8 Update to roll out from February 2013 for the existing WP 7.5 Devices

--> I guess every windows phone 7.5 user must have waited quite long for the windows phone 7.8 update and must have come across various blogs saying the 7.8 update should arrive in early 2013.. 

So I went through various blogs and read various articles and now finally I could conclude that there is a strong a possibility that the WP 7.8 update should roll out from around February 2013. I am eagerly waiting for it  as I own a Windows Phone , Samsung Omnia W (first windows phone from Samsung in India) , currently running Windows Phone 7.5 OS , Tango , as they say !

Samsung Omnia W ( I must say my phone has Excellent hardware at the price , once again Samsung Well Done !)( I preferred it over Lumia 800 which was costlier and had nothing much to offer at that price ). Various blogs say that Samsung Omnia W will receive WiFi Tethering . But guys the Phone already has Internet Sharing available on the phone (i.e. multiple devices can use your mobile data connection).

So I wonder why on certain blogs they say that their phone does not have this functionality .Anyways ,  coming back to WP 7.8 ... 

So what additional features does the 7.8 update bring to your 
phone ? I know most of you must be knowing this but I would just like to mention it again :

1) Windows Phone 8 like Start Screen . (Probably this should be enough for most of us to get some fresh  and new feel )

2) Bing Daily lock Screen Wallpaper

3) Some new Themes (Mainly Color Schemes)

4) One will be able to make custom Ringtones from their MP3 files --- ( rumour :(  )

5) Bluetooth File Transfer will be available (i simply doubt that ... )

That's it . Not much I can tell unless and until i get the 7.8 update. But friends , I am sure that , "  When you pull out your phone out of our pocket , after you've received the windows phone 7.8 update , it will look and feel the same as a Windows Phone 8 device ".

So Stay tuned , as I will review the new features of Windows Phone 7.8 as soon as I get the update and will be uploading a Video reviewing the same !

  1. hiii.. me too have the Samsung omnia w.
    my frnd got the 7.8 update on his lumia 800 and it got bluetooth file transfer.. :)

  2. I am samsung omnia w user. I am not able to update to windows 7.8. While connecting to ZUNE it says your phone is up to date. Currently my phones OS is 7.10.8107.79..I have tried reconnecting my phone to zune and have also downloaded zune software many a times..PLEASE help me Out. Now i cant live without it...PLEASE HELP ME....

    1. Dude try to Force Update your phone to 7.8 . Many people have asked me for help as they havent received the Update yet... So better Google the process on how to force update .. it is very simple and oyu should be good to go ! cheeers :)

    2. Try these steps
      To force the update:

      1) Turn off cellular data, and Wifi on your Lumia 900.

      2) Connect to Zune, check for updates. It won’t detect one.

      3) Change to a different tab other than update in the settings.

      4) Disconnect phone, then reconnect it.

      5) Now, get ready. You will need to hit the “Update” button and unplug the network cable from your computer exactly 2 seconds after hitting this button. It will present an update is available!

      6) Reconnect internet, then hit Update!

      7) Now update!

      8) Repeat a few times, I’ll post how many updates there are below!

      You will need to perform this a bunch of times to make sure that all the prerequisite updates and 7.8 itself gets installed! I’m updating this post as I’m performing this! If you don’t have luck, keep trying! I think the update servers are getting hammered pretty hard, so this may have an effect on plugging the internet at the right time!

      First Update (to):

      Second Update (to):

      Third Update (to):

      Repeat the steps untill u ii see an Update option in the zune ;)
