Following on from the somewhat embarrasing problems for Microsoft and their first software update for Windows Phone 7 devices, it has been reported that users are still having issues, with Samsung once again coming off the worst.
We recently told you that Microsoft had resumed their software update rollout for devices after initially stopping it to fix widespread problems that they had discovered, but it looks like they may need to revise that decision after reports that problems are still occuring.
Fresh problems involve a new error code 800705B4, which has been showing up for a lot of Samsung Omnia 7 owners whilst trying to update. According to WinRumors, Microsoft are already aware of this problem, as there’s an official support thread which you can check out here.
It’s not exactly the best advert for Microsoft and Windows Phone 7 as a whole, as who would want to commit to a new handset and contract if software update problems are going to continue?
If you have a bricked device at the moment, you may want to have a read of our previous article here, as there is a temporary solution to the problem which may help you.
If you own a Windows Phone 7 handset, let us know how the recent software update went for you.
