Windows Phone 7 NoDo update arrives for more devices

By Gary Johnson - Apr 20, 2011

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?
