In the past ten days or so, Windows Phone 7 users (especially those who own a Samsung smartphone) have been experiencing a rollercoaster ride. First the updates roll out, then they brick some smartphones, get pulled and now they resume again.
Bricked! And restored again…
Windows Phone Blog has stated that updates for your Samsung models which earlier bricked mobiles have now been resumed after fixing a technical snag. So if you did encounter some issues during the earlier update, chances are that they will be rectified now. The blog also says that you need to have sufficient hard disk space and a “proper” internet connection before you update, because your phone will encounter a data backup through the Zune Software for precaution. While all that is good, the blog might end up leaving a bittersweet taste in your mouth.
The issues are being resolved, true. But if you haven’t received a notification for the update, you might have to wait for “days—or even weeks—before you’re able to update your phone.” So in short, the update which was meant to make future updates smooth has itself landed on a rough patch!
Anyway, if you have faced earlier glitches and are now rejoicing, please update your smartphone and tell us about your experiences.
