Default 11501 firmware update for unlocked devices

Hello,

I have an unlocked Lumia 800 bought in the UK (using here in Canada). I was wondering if the update is showing up for others owners like me ? I didn't get any notification yet.

Info :

OS : 7.10.8107.79
FW: 1600.2479.7740.11451
HW : 112.1402.2.4
Carrier : CV UK SW variant ID222 v02 (don't know what it means)

Update rollout via Zune is staged meaning not every phone gets the update on the same time. The rollout period is two weeks and started on Jan 19th. You will receive it in the end. There is a 'hack' to get it sooner, put it requires some patients as timing is critical, search for 'disconnect trick'. Good luck.

You have the same phone as me (UK unlocked & unbranded). The line you don't understand basically means it's a UK variant.

For the mid December update, I waited to get it, took over a week. This time I did the disconnect method and got it on release day.

Hi Rusty, I havn't got the update yeat and I have a UK unlocked Lumia 800. BUT I am wondering on another note. I joined GG last wek and it seems good. I inputted the APN info so I can get on the net but I cant send MMS. I am going to write up a new thread for this now. Can you use MMS and if so how so?
Thanks.

I've not tried, but I'm assuming I cant, as most people on pretty much every carrier cant

Sadly Giffgaff is not included in the Network Setup app either, so we're boned.

Very strange. I have a stock Lumia straight from Nokia (no branding, unlocked) and I got both the OS and firmware update in one go the day after release. I had to do the disconnect trick though...

I've tried 3 times. I got the OS update automatically on day one. I restored to 7740 and tried again. Still OS only. Tried a few days later and got the same thing.

Waiting up to 8 more days for firmware.
