Windows Phone 7.5 "Mango"

Microsoft announced on Monday that it is now delivering the Windows Phone 7.5 “Mango” update to Deutsche Telekom (T-Mobile) Samsung Omnia 7 devices.

Microsoft originally started rolling out Windows Phone 7.5 on September 27. The company is now delivering the update to all eligible devices. Microsoft’s push towards the Omnia 7 update for Deutsche Telekom users means the only exceptions left are:

  • Samsung Omnia 7 devices on Telefonica still testing
  • Dell Venue Pro on AT&T still planning
  • Samsung Focus 1.4 on AT&T still testing

“If you have a phone that’s still listed as Testing on Where’s My Phone Update?, please be assured that you have our full focus and attention,” said Microsoft’s Eric Hautala in a blog post on Monday. “We aim to deliver Mango to those models as soon as they’ve completed testing and will expedite the delivery process.” Microsoft is also delivering device firmware updates. The firmware updates are provided by handset manufacturers and are designed to improve a phones performance, fix bugs, and activate new Windows Phone 7.5 features.

      if it says restarting phone for part 6 for a while, cancel update. Then turn of wifi, 3g, and lockscreen password, and location

    It does take at least 45 minutes or more.

    Samsung mad a bug in the early versions of its firmware. If you are really unlucky like me – your phone also comes without download mode and it has to be firmware updated by Samsung. Read more here:

      When I got my omnia 7 it had that problem, but when NoDo came out it fixed that problem. I was stuck on rebooting part 6 too, just turn off everything and make sure you don’t have a lockscreen password.
