Windows Phone 7: Samsung updates resume

By Posted 3 Mar 2011, 13:22

We told you last month about the Microsoft Windows phone 7 update causing some owners handsets to brick. This affected Samsung owners the most, which led to Microsoft halting the update. Now today we have more news about the software upgrade.

Chris Davies from SlashGear is reporting that Microsoft is going to try the update again. From today Microsoft are restarting the software upgrade for Samsung handsets, and continuing updates for other Windows Phone models. Owners will get a message on their handset when it becomes available to download.

Microsoft have said that their engineers have spent the last week finding and fixing problems with the update, which was affecting certain handsets. The exact cause of the problems with the Samsung handsets has of yet not been revealed by Microsoft.

When owners get the alert on their handset they will have to download the update via a computer, as it is not available over the air. The update will give handsets the ability to receive future improvements, which include the NoDo feature, which many users will be looking forward to.

This will allow the support for copy and paste, which will be a welcome feature for users, and you, can see a video of it in action here.
