Nokia Lumia 900 AT&T

Yesterday reports began surfacing about some Nokia Lumia 900s that were losing their data connection, and now Nokia has confirmed the problem. In a post on its Nokia Conversations blog, the company says that "a memory management issue" is causing a loss of data connectivity for some users and that it's already cooked up a fix for the bug. An update is expected to be pushed via the Zune software on or around April 16th. Affected Lumia 900 owners also have the option of exchanging their existing device for an updated handset. Nokia and AT&T aren't stopping there, though, as they'll also be giving a $100 AT&T bill credit to anyone that's already bought a Lumia 900 or will buy one through April 21st.

It's definitely a bummer that some Lumia 900 owners have run into data connectivity problems right after the device's launch, especially considering how big of a deal the 900 is to AT&T and Nokia. That said, it's good to see that the issue has already been identified and that a solution has been put together, and the $100 bill credit is an awesome gesture by the two companies. How many of you have already picked up a Lumia 900? If so, have you run into any issues with your data connection?
