AT&T commits to post-8107 Windows Phone updates
AT&T has made a commitment to address Windows Phone updates, including the 8107 debacle, in the coming months. In case you need a refresher, Microsoft’s 8107 update is the one that addresses the disappearing keyboard issue and a variety of other security fixes.

AT&T infamously decided not to support the update, creating a bit of a scene over at its support forums that eventually lead to users accusing AT&T of censoring dissatisfied customers by deleting their complaint posts with no explanation or warning.

An AT&T Community Manager, Jamileh, has publically posted on their forums to address the 8107 issue as well as reaffirm AT&T’s commitment to providing updates. The post reads:

Hey all - I know you're eagerly awaiting news about this.

AT&T plans for a Windows Phone update that will contain the improvements in the 8107 update and more.

I will likely start a new thread as I get more information as this one is getting a bit tricky to find information in.

Stay tuned

Unfortunately an ETA was not provided, but it is good to see AT&T finally stepping up to the plate and providing Windows Phone adopters with the updates they deserve.

What a mess. Great way to get new users for an operating system. Great news that AT&T relented, but how long is the new spirit of co-operation going to last?

My breathe is held. I am staying tuned. The suspense is killing me. I am on the edge of my seat.

Also, will be shocked if we see it. No reason not to have supported the original update, bit they didn't.

If I hadn't won my Titan I'd be pretty mad! I'm so sick of carriers dragging their slow greedy feet when it comes to updates... my next phone will be unlocked.

Too bad Ms doesn't push updates themselves like apple does. Att has by far the best windows phones(because the others barely want them) but they're so slow to update any handsets, wp7 or even android, that its an exercise in both patience and frustration to know there's an updated version and you have to wait.
