Lumia 900 owners can rest easy, as Nokia has just released a software update that fixes the data connectivity bug in its flagship smartphone - a full three days early.
As we all know some of the Nokia Lumia 900s experienced data connectivity issues. Nokia promised an update would be available by April 16th and offered a $100 rebate to everyone that purchased the phone before April 21st as a gesture of goodwill. Those affected have the option to swap their phone out with a new device or wait for the software update..
You can get the Lumia 900 update by going through the Zune software on PCs, or the Windows Phone Connector on Macs. Here is the statement from Nokia:
"A little while after the Lumia 900 went on sale, we discovered a software issue that can sometimes lead to lost data connectivity. This issue is purely in the phone’s software, and isn’t related to the phone hardware or the network itself.
We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused, and as a gesture of goodwill, we are offering a $100 AT&T bill credit to everyone who has already purchased a Nokia Lumia 900 or who will purchase one before April 21st. "
