Nokia 610 upgrade?


Will Koodo ever provide an upgrade to Windows 7.8 for its Nokia 610 phone customers?

Microsoft is the one who actually makes the update but Telus/Koodo executes it. Keep your eyes open. Apparently it's available for "SIM-free" handsets but carrier locked ones will have to wait a bit. It's not an OTA update, you'll have to do it through your computer. Reference: http://www.knowyourmobile.com/blog/1790296/windows_phone_78_update_available_for_nokia_lumia_phones.html

You can also try flashing a WP7.8 ROM manually. I know it's not ideal, but it's an option.

You have to be careful with this method. From what I read from John if you flash a version from another carrier you need to put an unlock code in to make it function (I'm sure I'll be corrected if wrong but that was my understanding)
