The latest Windows Phone 7 update caused nothing but trouble for Microsoft – it didn't bring any major innovations, but it succeeded in bricking some Samsung phones. A day has passed, and Redmond has pulled the update for handsets by Samsung as it looks into the issue. “In response to this emerging issue, we have temporarily taken down the latest software update for Samsung phones in order to correct the issue and as soon as possible will redistribute the update,” Redmond commented in response to WinRumors. The irony of it all was that the update was a very minor one, supposed to fix the updating process ahead of a bigger update expected in March, which is to bring the much anticipated copy-paste and CDMA support features. Samsung Omnia 7 owners were affected the most, with many reporting that their phone remained “bricked” after the update. Not all users were affected, but whatever the number of bricked devices is, this definitely looks like a valid … [Read more...] about Windows Phone 7 update pulled for Samsung handsets following reports of bricked handsets

Jason78 (Posts: 281; Member since: 10 Apr 2013) Yes and no. The Windows 10 update can be done using just the phone. To roll back you need a Windows PC and the correct software. Something to be aware of if, like me, you don't have a Windows PC. 23. elitewolverine (Posts: 5192; Member since: 28 Oct 2013) True, but a 50$ brand new budget pc can … [Read more...] about Comments for : Next build of Windows 10 for Phones Technical Preview coming to more models
Microsoft Lumia 950 and Microsoft Lumia 950 XL units that previously did not receive the update to Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.36, have started receiving it at last. Windows Insiders in both the fast and slow rings already had the new build sent to them OTA. That would leave non-Insiders left, but there is a chance they are not the target of today's update.Because a number of Windows Insiders were stuck on build 10586.00 and could not receive 10586.29 and 10586.36, this update could be intended for them. If that is the case, then Windows non-Insiders with the Lumia 950 or Lumia 950 XL might not be receiving the latest update at this point in time.The reason that the 10586.36 build of Windows 10 Mobile is so important, is that it is the last update that Microsoft is pushing out to its mobile devices this year and includes bug fixes and performance enhancements. As for older Windows Phone users waiting for their phones to be updated, that will not take place until early next year. … [Read more...] about Non-insider Microsoft Lumia 950 and Lumia 950 XL updated to Windows 10 Mobile build 10586.36?

But here's the thing, Ben the PC guy showed us an early demo running on the Lumia 900 back in June. Basic emulators of 7.8 have some functionality although not working the way intended to. You mean to tell me they couldn't just give us this small gift before Christmas? My upgrade isn't until early 2014 and T-Mobile does not carry the Lumia 920 so I'm not upgrading early unless we get a worthy … [Read more...] about Comments for : Microsoft confirms Windows Phone 7.8 coming early 2013
