    hopefully not too long here is some info on it

    Nokia has released yet another firmware update for its Windows Phone-powered Lumia 800 to address problems with the device’s battery life and a number of other bugs. And it’s well worth installing. According to a report from WPCentral, version 1600.2487.8107.12070 “nearly tripled” the battery life on their Lumia 800.

    While the Lumia 800 has received plenty of critical acclaim since its release last year, one problem that users have been suffering most is poor battery life, with many reporting that they cannot go a full day without charging their handset at least once.

    Nokia has already issued two firmware updates to address the issue in the past, but it seems it’s the latest that is having the most impact. In addition to better brightness control, the Lumia 800 reportedly consumes just 70mA of power when idle with the latest software, while issues with white balance in the camera app and audio bass have also been fixed.

    Furthermore, users who already have access to the update are reporting that it includes references to new features, such as a panoramic camera more and a self timer. However, these are not yet active.

    The update begins its rollout in Singapore today, but Nokia is yet to announce when it will reach other territories. When it lands on your device, be sure to let us know.

    Must be close now, you can kind of track progress here, although to be honest the next stage is probably available.

    Hello Meteor,

    Since purchasing the lumia 800 i have experienced seriously poor battery issues. I understand that this is a well known problem for this phone and that an update is imminent. However, according to Nokias site there should already be an update available for my phone as it states on their site (http://europe.nokia.com/find-products/nokia-lumia-800-software-update/nokia-lumia-800-software-update-availability). Note the product code (059N8B5) showing update available for the meteor network is the code my phone has.

    Up to now i have been very patient with this phone in spite of being caught with a dead battery on several occassions  but i fear that if there is still a problem with the phone after the update i will not be able to return it for a new one as i should have done already because the intial return date for faulty phones will have passed.

    Please advise,

    Hi,
       I have flashed my phone with the latest firmware and the battery life is greatly improved.See here for help http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=1525370.
    This completely wipes the phone but you can install a app called reinstalled which scans live your account to see what apps you had installed. Make sure to reconnect to wifi before you install apps or your data plan will get hammered. Post 26 has link to guide. I did not need navifim to download the firmware.
    Use Nokia Product Support Tool from Nokia Care Suite (seidea.com).
    You need to manually install the correct drivers to get it to work. Navigate to:
    C:Program Files (x86)NokiaNokia Care SuiteDrivers, reboot. open Product support tool and bottom right make sure icon is displaying online.
    This then download new firware, this is about 350 meg and takes about 20 min. I then used info in link 26.

    Its a small bit trickey and not worth the hassel if meteor is rolling it out soon I got sick of my phone running out of power before the end of a day.

    Good luck

    This still hasn't appeared as an update, either on the phone itself or via windows phone connector for Mac.  I can't flash the thing manually because I don't have a windows laptop.  In any event, I shouldn't have to perform surgery of that nature in order to obtain a reasonable battery life.

    Hi again Jamesryan,

    This update has been signed off on :)

    It should be pushed out by Nokia in the next two weeks.

    The main feature of the update is to add tethering to the phone.

    Hope this helps!!!

    The phone was set to the UK.  I changed that on the day that you posted.  Still no update on the phone, or via Windows Phone Connector.

    How do I try?  My phone, via 'phone update' from the settings menu, says no updates available.  When I connect to windows phone connector (for mac) and check for updates it says none available.  Someone here might quickly correct me, but I have not heard of anyone yet who received the original update on Meteor without having to download and push the update manually via Zune.  As I said above, I don't have a windows laptop, and surely it should be easier to update the firmware than that.

    I've had my Nokia Lumia 800 since the beginning of March and have not received any firmware updates.

    There have been no notifications on my phone and when I check for updates using Zune I'm told that my phone software is up to date.

    I'm currently on the following firmware version: 1600.2483.8107.11501

    Why isn't Meteor pushing out these updates?

    Steven why are you asking about regions and attempting new updates? Meteor have not pushed out any updates for this phone regardless of region or anything else. I have also had this phone since the first week of sale and even though Nokia have made updates available as early as March, Meteor still haven't pushed these out. The original update included a very important battery fix as the battery is terrible on this phone. This update was pushed out within a couple of weeks by Vodafone. The fact that the representatives here are posting as if this is all brand new information is not very reassuring to say the least.

    I have the same firmware as listed above by the previous poster. When are Meteor going to give us new firmware that has been available and pushed out by other Irish networks for months now?

    We have pushed out updates for the Lumia 800 (last update was pushed out late May/early June).

    I am asking for the region as the phone won't pick up the update unless it is set to the correct region.
