Vodafone says rollout of Windows Phone 7.8 has been stopped
Some Windows Phone users might not be terribly happy today after a posting in Vodafone's German support forum says that Microsoft has put a halt to the rollout of the Windows Phone 7.8 update. A couple of weeks ago, we first passed along the word that some Nokia Lumia 800 users found that the update was causing havoc with lower volume levels on the device. That was followed with talk that Nokia Lumia 900 users were having issues with the Live Tiles after the update.

Microsoft has halted the rollout of Windows Phone 7.8?

Microsoft has halted the rollout of Windows Phone 7.8?

When some German customers of Vodafone complained that they did not receive the update yet, the carrier responded by posting that response saying that until further notice, Microsoft had halted the rollout of Windows Phone 7.8. With data from Adduplex showing that just 16% of potential Windows Phone 7.8 users receiving the update, it looks like it will be quite some time before Microsoft stops pushing out the update once it resumes the task.

Windows Phone 7.8 brings some of the capabilities of Windows Phone 8 to older handsets such as resizeable Live Tiles, twenty different colored themes and the Bing Lock screen wallpaper of the day, to name a few. The idea of the build is to keep those with older hardware as up to date as possible so that they won't automatically run off to Android or iOS once their two year tour of duty with their carrier expires.
