Be warned this is a Rant. So with the issues we saw with NoDo and the feedback one expected the Mango rollout to be handled differently. In some ways it was, AT&T didn’t drag their feet approving it, the update worked with minimal (no issues in my case) issues on the Samsung Focus. All good right? Ummm No!
So I used the method outline on wpcentral to get my phones updated. Now the reports did say that the rollout was going to be gradual so why am I complaining right? I purchased my Samsung Focus on the day of it’s United States release, entering an AT&T store a few hours after it opened. Considering I am in the Eastern Standard Time Zone that would be the first possible hours of the launch. Based on numbers the release of Windows Phone have not been huge. So how did a customer who bought the phone just a few hours after the launch not fall into the first wave of updates?
I have Mango so no big deal huh? I have not been able to confirm this but it would seem that since I updated my phone before it was selected for update means it is not registered correctly because when I access the new Web version of the Windows Phone app market when I try to get a 7.5 only app I am rewarded with:
“learn how to update your phone?” Wow that’s intuitive.
I am still learning the new features and really like the update to what was already a very nice mobile platform but the update process really needs improvement.
