Windows Phone 7 NoDo update arrives for more devices

The Windows Phone 7 update has caused Microsoft some headaches since they first started to roll it out. Owners of Samsung handsets found it bricked their handsets, which led to Microsoft suspending the update. It was then released again but some Samsung owners continued to experience problems. Now Microsoft has begun rolling out the NoDo update to more devices.

Nancy Gohring of PCWorld is reporting that users of the LG Quantum and Samsung Focus can now get the software update, after Microsoft made it available for the devices. If you are an owner of the HTC Surround, AT&T and Microsoft are still working on the updates for the device.

If you have one of the handsets that can now get the update, your device should display a message saying the updates are ready. Handsets check for updates every three days, so to get both of them may take several days.

But users can always connect their handsets to their PCs and download them manually using the Zune software. The problems Microsoft has encountered with the updates should not affect the Mango update which is planned for later this year.

Have you downloaded the updates yet? How did you get on?

    i got an update today morning, did the update, but i can't use copy paste feature. Is there a special way to use it ? Anyone ?

      There are two updates. For the copy paste feature, just slect a word by tapping it. It will highlight. Then you can copy it. if you want more, just drag one side of the highlighted area to where you want. Ta da!

    I had no problems upgrading my Samsung Focus with both February and March Nodo upgrades. There is a slight learning curve with cut and paste. However, with a little experimentation I'm able to use cut and paste. My experiance with cut and paste is very positive. My sons both have Samsung Focus and because of some of the apps they had installed they had to use the MS support app to download and install the February upgrade. The March Nodo upgrade, however, installed without any problems.
