Vodafone rolling out Nokia Lumia 800 update

Vodafone is rolling out a firmware update for the Nokia Lumia 800 Windows Phone. The update, 12072, is primarily a bug-fixing release that will address the battery issue, updated the camera software and address the volume problem. The firmware update lacks internet tethering which is still slated for a future update.

According to Vodafone Australia, this update supersedes the previously announced 12070 update that began rolling out earlier this month in other markets. Apparently there was an issue that prevented the wide scale roll out of that update. It sounds as if this update picks up where the earlier roll-out left off.

We are getting tips that Vodafone Spain, Australia and U.K. customers are receiving the update. If you've received the update, feel free to share your experiences in the comments.

Thanks, everyone, for the tip!

  • Yet still no keyboard fix from AT&T......
  • I'm sure AT&T skipped the 8107 update and will only deliver Tango.
    I know it sucks, but don't worry, next month or early June should be the end of your waiting.
  • im sorry for this off topic comment, but dam that lumia 800 looks outstanding. the colour is perfect
  • I just hope they'd do at least something to improve the 710's battery life and camera. The battery isn't had, but just wish it could do more. The camera however is quite mediocre.
  • I got the update notification last night here in The Netherlands.
    Updating right now.
