"Some Mobile Operators have the right to skip one update if they wish. However, they can't skip the next one, which would be an acumulative update and would include the previous one. So if your mobile operator decided to block this one, you will be getting the early March one (which will include the Feb one too)." - Diego T. (Microsoft WP7 Support)
Still haven't gotten the notification for your first WP7 update? There is a possibility your carrier may have exercised their right to block this update. That's right, carriers have the right to block updates for one cycle. This means if they did in fact block this first update, they will have to give you the next one. This also means if they give you this one, they can hold NoDo until the update after that. Updates are cumulative so when the next one comes it will include any previous updates. So the upside is you will get an update. The downside is your carrier definitely has a say in the schedule.
