Rogers Samsung Focus recieving the Windows Phone 8107 Update

Rogers Canada pushing 8107 to Samsung Focus

We've received several tips this afternoon reporting that the 8107 Windows Phone update is being pushed out to the Samsung Focus by Rogers Canada.

OS 8107 addresses the disappearing keyboard issue as well as other security fixes and patches. It has slowly trickled out to various carriers and even the unlocked Dell Venue Pro recently received the update.  If you've updated your Roger's Samsung Focus, let us know what you think.

Thanks goes out to everyone else who tipped us on this!

jkercado says:

Damn you, AT&T.

WPSteve says:

More like.... Damn you, Sprint. lol

NH3MAN says:

Double Damn AT&T... I think this is the 2nd one they owe us.

ShortStuff says:

Darn it att come one send out our update. My titans key board is frustrating me -_-

slinky826 says:

You think that's bad, try having a physical keyboard (LG Quantum) and constantly having the phone act like its not out and cutting out on you in the middle of typing.

aubreyq says:

Wait a minute. The disappearing keyboard bug affects phones with physical keyboards as well? Man that's effed up.

ptk8ofbh says:

I flipped my carrier to Rogers in the registry last week on both of my Focuses, and pulled down 7740 and 8107 on both, so I think it's been available for a while now.

Baka says:

Microsoft to US: "Drop dead."

dcutting says:

It's not Microsoft, it's the carriers and there incessant need to "test" the release

Baka says:

Oh? Is that why Apple cannot push iPhone updates directly?

jfa1 says:

You are comparing Apples to Oranges

ReV1VeR says:

* Apples to Mangoes

bono5112 says:

When when when TMOBILE

Nice! I just got the update!!

based_graham says:

Got it yeah Lumia is getting updated right now soo stoked

jtshorns says:

This situation has to be fixed. This update process is soo flawed....and the Nokia phones need to be on ALL us carriers....all models....the only way to gain traction vs apple and Android

jfa1 says:

Thats not up to Nokia  its up to the carriers and the update process flaws given the totality of the evidence in the US  appears primarilyt to be samsung and not ATT  I am beginning to believe that ATT  has to do all the testing because of Samsung's hardware .  That, if true would make me hesitant to get the Samsung Mendel unless its very compelling!

jtshorns says:

I don't buy it being on Samsung anymore.....maybe for the first update, but not now. Why aren't any of the HTC devices updated on att? This is an ATT and US carrier problem. US carriers have way too much control over handset makers and OS's in general. The software has been tested because it's present already in the Titan 2 and the Nokia 900 shown at CES. This is purely ATT dragging its feet to push new handsets.

fpostrow says:

Let's be logical about this. What do we know? 1. MS has produced the update 8107. 2. Samsung has released it as it is deployed in Canada on Samsung Focus. 3. It is not deployed in the US for ATT on any hardware.
So we can deduce that the roadblock is NEITHER MS nor Samsung leaving only 1 culprit ... ATT.
Did I miss anything?

ec6589 says:

My gues is that ATT doesn't want to give us Internet Sharing - too many of us are grandfathered into unlimited data plans - and hasn't figured out how to suppress  it in 7740. And giving us 8107 means giving us all previous updates as well, so nothing for now. I have a Samsung Focusv1.3
Question - are the newest phones being sold by ATT running anything later than 7720?

dcutting says:

Here we go again. Still no update from the "Premier Partner" on the Focus or Focus Flash.

fpostrow says:

Ok, I'm getting ready to do it myself. Very disappointing.

fpostrow says:

Update in Progress ...

fpostrow says:

Done. Samsung Focus v1.3 8107.79

fpostrow says:

Just enabled and configured Internet Sharing / Mobile hotspot ..... nice.

gorebashd says:

:::Insert my at&t rant here:::

Kadcidxa says:

unlocked focus us still waiting. :(

I have an unlocked and debranded Samsung Focus S on AT&T, and I just got the notification of ther update... phone is installing as I type!

A1l2e3x4 says:

I got the update about a week ago. There's a huge bug in it where the phone deleted all of my emails, contacts and messages. I had to restore my phone to 7740

Munkeyphyst says:

Just did the registry change from ATT-US to ROG-CA and am happily running 8107 on my ATT focus-i917.

bonecrusher says:

hey editors, 'i' before 'e', except after 'c'

Tips_y says:

Yesterday I checked - no update... after reading this, I checked again and there's an update for my HTC Radar unlocked in the Philippines! Thanks guys!
Unfortunately I'm out of town and I'm using somebody else's computer and Zune tells me I'm a guest in the computer so it will not back-up my music, pictures, and videos. If anything goes wrong, will loose all those. I'll just wait for Sunday to update when I get back home.

goldenpipes says:
