In the case of a certain new AT&T 4G LTE device — this being the Nokia Lumia 900 — there has been data connectivity issues. Rather, that sometimes the Lumia 900 will completely drop its data connection. Thankfully, a fix has been issued as of today via Zune (for Windows) and Windows Phone Connector (for Mac).After applying the update to your new Windows Phone smartphone, you should be able to consistently use data on either HSPA, LTE, or Wi-Fi networks. Also, according to Nokia, “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.” Sounds good.
Here’s Nokia’s statement on the update:
Earlier this week, Nokia communicated about a memory management issue with the recently launched Nokia Lumia 900 at AT&T that, in some cases, was leading to a loss of data connectivity.
When this news was issued on Tuesday, Nokia had identified that a software update would be available for consumer download on or around April 16th. Today, we’d like to share with you that the update is now available. Consumers now have the opportunity to update their AT&T version Nokia Lumia 900 software through Zune and Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac earlier than anticipated.
Consumers are still able to swap out their Lumia 900 for an updated Lumia 900 in an AT&T store if they’d prefer. And, of course, the $100 credit offer will remain in effect through Midnight PST on April 21st.
