I really hope this isn't true:
AT&T handset owners might never get copy-paste Windows Phone 7 update
Does debranding your phone void your warranty if you don't have to dev unlock it to accomplish the debranding? I'm tempted to debrand my Quantum to at least go ahead and get the pre-nodo update.

That article is pretty much just full of conjecture and no fact (according to Microsoft). Not to mention the update page is a big slap in the face to the carriers as it basically puts all the blame on them if the update isnt showing up potentially hurting the carriers business.

I think that article is just spreading FUD. It's all based on a few word Twitter post. Sure it probably could happen, but I doubt it would.
What is debranding? Is it hard to do? I saw a few posts saying you need to rebrand your phone after you update or you'll miss out on carrier specific phone updates.

I hope it is just FUD. I really like my Quantum, but the Marketplace Bug is getting kind of annoying. If I could get the update to fix that and add Copy & Paste, I'd be satisfied for a long time. I am just worried after experiencing how AT&T was with Blackberry updates. It always seemed like they were the last ones to approve an update, so I always ended up having to download another carrier's "approved OS" to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.

@Tobyus it wasn't much different for my BlackBerry on Verizon. I ended up using leaked ROMs or Sprint's ROMs half the time. Verizon always lagged 4 months behind a release it seemed.

AT&T is the premiere partner in the US for WP7 and even though they are currently "testing" the March 2011 update, I can't ever imagine that AT&T WP7 handsets would not receive future updates.

THere is no way that this is true
Microsoft has worked to hard to not have this happen and I'm sure they will get it soon
I don't beleave all the stuff that people are saying about ATT for one reason, when Microsoft tried pushing out version 7008 they were pushing it to Samsung Focus phones that are on what network ? ATT
so they were actually the first to almost get the update but because of the issues they are just being very careful about the process..

Whereas with MS and Google they only make the core software, other companies design and build the hardware and write the drivers. Carriers modify the software on the devices they sell.

Apple does the hardware and software, so all testing is completed in-house before the release. Apple also does all their own support as well.
With Win-Mo, it is given to the manufacturers to test compatibility with the individual devices, then manufacturers send it to the carriers for network testing.

i'll wait if i have to as long as i know they're trying their best. at&t's T.A. (technical acceptance) is brutal.

I know that there are hacks but not all of us are desirous or capable of this. The rest of us would just like to know what the $#!+ is going on.

if ms has "testing", i really don't expect at&t to say the same thing.
