Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Gets An Update 7.10.7740.16

We saw the update request on our Mango phone this morning.

After plugging in here at the shop where the phone is synchronized we saw:


So, we clicked the UPDATE NOW button and then:


Hopefully that does not mean that it will be backing up all of the tunes on there as there are roughly 12GB of media content.

As per the above snip the update is supposed to fix an Exchange issue and a “Voicemail notification issue”.

Hopefully that voicemail fix means that when we have 5 voicemails waiting the phone says that there are 5 voicemails in the queue. Currently, no matter how many voicemails there are waiting the phone only puts a 1 with the little tape symbol.

This can be really annoying on a busy day when folks have called and we do not realize that they have left us a voicemail! So, when we call in we get, “You have 5 messages waiting!” and boy are we surprised!

Total time to update the HTC HD7: ~10 Minutes.

On another note I finished the _entire_ Angry Birds version for Windows Phone with three stars at all levels. The only achievement not reached was the Rock Crusher or something like that (250K blocks). I had to use YouTube for six of the levels to figure out where the weak spot was in the puzzle because spending more than a day or two on one frustrated both me and the kids watching me! :)

Thanks for reading.
