Microsoft Has Stopped Windows Phone 7.8 Roll Out
I have some bad news for you if you are still waiting for the Windows Phone 7.8 update on your device. It seems Microsoft has stopped it for now. According to Vodafone Germany the reason customers aren’t receiving the update is because Microsoft has halted the process and I quote:
“Here is the info about the update. Microsoft has stopped until further notice, the rollout of the update. Currently there is a new date for it.”
One would guess that Microsoft has stopped the roll out due to the issues that end users were seeing. Especially the issue with the live tiles (some are using massive amounts of data) and since the live tiles are what you are updating to WP7.8 for in the first place it would be best it if they worked correctly.
No other information was given on when the roll out will start back up…I will get back to you with this information as soon as it becomes available.
