    When Mango Beta is released, who all will get it. Will all devs who paid the 99.00 fee get it?

    I think I read somewhere that only "serious" devs would get it. I took that as... those who just paid $99 to get dev-unlocked aren't getting it.

    Yeah, I also saw that. I wonder what's the process of filtering out "serious" devs. Maybe I'm serious, but suck at it it, and haven't produced anything yet.

    I thought the serious dev comment had to do with handing out Mango dev phones, not releasing a beta.

    I'm too lazy to pull up the tweet, but "serious" devs release apps and reach out to Microsoft; part of which I'm assuming means being active in their local MS dev groups. And yeah, it has to do with handing out Mango dev hardware. I haven't seen anything pertaining to releasing a beta. Pity; I'd get a second Focus just to try it.

    Got my invite today. No app development yet for me, so don't think I fall into the "serious" category.

    I think I'll go ahead and pay to be a dev. I already have the files though. But I want to play around and actually make a app.

    Once installed, look for Windows Phone Developer Tools/Windows Phone Developer Registration. Have your phone plugged in first. Enter your Live ID and the cert will get loaded onto your device.

    No. I just did the same thing. And it said to wait for verification. I went ahead and tried it, and it worked.

    I'm jealous! I wonder how it works... suppose I find someone who will add me to their dev account (I'll even pay), would they need my phone or could I do everything at home?

    P.S. if this is possible, I'll put in $$$ for a spot with anyone.

    If you have a previous unlocked phone, you don't need a dev account. It never once asked for my dev info. Go figure.

    I rather be safe. Saw some news that if anything goes wrong, they won't support my bricked device.

    Also, you need to revert back to the pre-mango to get the official mango from what I read.

    There's a step in teh beginning of the update process that back ups the phone first, then updates it. It gives a warning to put this backup someone safe.

    I'm starting to notice a few hiccups. Not going to call them bugs, because it's a beta.
