connectivity issue

We all know the story surrounding the connectivity issues with the Nokia Lumia 900, right? The Lumia 900 had a software bug that caused data connections to drop and in the span of a week Nokia acknowledged the problem, worked up a fix and distributed it ahead of schedule.

Customers had the choice of swapping out their Lumia 900 for a new unit or simply updated their existing Lumia 900 with the fix. To help compensate customers (who bought the Lumia on or before April 21st), Nokia also threw in a $100 credit.  The credit was scheduled to be applied within the next sixty days according to a reminder text message from AT&T.

Just as Nokia wasted no time rolling out the update, they aren't wasting any time rolling out the $100 credit.  We're getting reports from several readers that they are already seeing the credit showing up on their AT&T account. I just checked mine and sure enough, it's there.  

Kudos once again to Nokia for promptly addressing the problem, fixing it and crediting our accounts.  Is everyone else seeing the credit?  We've got a forums discussion going on about the credit rolling out.  Feel free to chime in there or in the comments below. 

Thanks to everyone for tipping us on this!

We just received a tip that Rogers Canada is pushing out the Nokia Lumia 900 update. The update is designed to address the loss of data connectivity that was a thorn in the side of many Lumia 900 owners.

We aren't sure how wide spread the availability of the update is but you should get a notification on your Lumia 900 informing you the update is available. Otherwise you can check by connecting your Lumia 900 to your Zune desktop app.

In addition, as a gesture of goodwill, if you purchased your Lumia 900 on or before April 21st, Nokia will credit your Rogers wireless bill $100.

Feel free to let us know in the comments if you're seeing the update, how the update process goes and most importantly if you see any difference in performance.

Thanks, Aaron, for the tip!
