Microsoft will be starting to officially roll out Windows Phone 7 build 7.10.8107.79 tomorrow. This update will most likely hit all Windows Phone owners in Canada, but the above internal document reveals that Bell will deploy a 2-stage rollout for the LG Optimus Quantum and the HTC HD7. The “1st wave” will start on January 18th, followed by the “2nd wave” on January 25th. Curious what fixes this will bring… here’s the complete list:

On-screen keyboard. Fixes an issue to prevent the keyboard from disappearing during typing.

Email. Fixes a Google mail syncing issue.

Location. Fixes a location access issue. With this fix, the Me feature in the People Hub sends anonymous information about nearby Wi-Fi access points and cell towers to Microsoft only if you agree to allow the Check In function to access and use location information.

Security. Revokes digital certificates from DigiCert Sdn Bhd to address an encryption issue.

Email threads. Fixes an email issue related to Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. With this fix, when you reply to or forward a message, the original message is now included in your response.

Voicemail. Fixes a voicemail notification display issue that occurs on some European and Asian networks under certain conditions.

(Thanks tipster!)

    It’s great to see Bell is still interested in WP7. Bring on the Lumia 900. It will be killer…

    I’m suprised noone’s mentioning the option for internet tethering is still yet enabled

    • Jean-Michel

      I was about to mention tethering. I sure hope the update will be included even though it is not mentionned.

      teathering and voicemail are carrier dependant…if you like me have verizon…they have not enabled these features and if you call about it they sound like a bunch of dumb robots stuck on repeat trying to figure out what a windows phone is…verizon support of windows phone has been utter crap notice the one device as apposed to the rest of the carreirs in the US….

    Finally! I’m so ready to be done with the disappearing keyboard! It’s been the only source of frustration with my HD7 since mango.

  • ajm

    Nice to see Bell is still on board. Thought they were done with WP7. So will LG/Bell ever provide Wifi internet sharing?

    • Jason

      I got the 8107 updtae and still no WIFI hotspot! Grrrrrrr!

  • Anirask

    This impressed me greatly. I had given up on Bell and Windows Phone becasue they’re not even selling the platform anymore but to be the first telco in Canada to push a recent update to it’s users is fantastic.

    It’s the level of support I expect for my monthly fee.

  • Bijan

  • Jason
