    Any word when US is getting this update?

    unfortunately some people (my wife) are still stuck with Exchange 2003 in their workplace.

    Thanks for telling me the obvious.

    Obviously, then, it wasn't clear.

    What specific improvements is it supposed to bring? Is there an anticipated changelog somewhere beyond the below link from this site?

    7740 has 2 known fixes

    Whenever user forwards email and has an Exchange 2003 backend, email that you are forwarding, is missing... it worked fine prior to Mango.

    other fix is for voicemail

    my wife does a lot of work on her HD7, and its a big problem for her, i have no problem, since my company is on the latest and greatest...

    I guess I will have to Chevron unlock her phone...
    I just dont understand why would MS roll this out only to EU and AS... and not US !

    I would have thought that it would have rolled out by now also firmware update for focus was supposed to be in the works and I haven't received any notification on phone or zune that its availableI I think that was dealing with internet sharing!

    PZ+WP7, it is not ONLY the US that has not received that update. It seems that the update is rolled out randomly. I still have not seen any indication over here on the west coast of Sweden of an update. Today I blame it on the storm Berit, which hit us two days ago and caused a lot of damages.

    that is very unfortunate.... Windows Phone Blog doesnt say anything (or at least I cant find anything).

    They were so good with Mango update... they seem to take a back seat now...

    thats because its not a OFFICAL MS update , its more of a OEM/RTM update that MS approved.

    wheres my update page is for like : NODO , MANGO , TANGO , APOLLO ect......

    you can try a FORCE update like we did on NODO and MANGO.

    plug phone in --> click on update page (zune) --> wait 3 sec--> disonect internet --> plug back in --> update available..

    Do they allow tethering in Canada as part of your data package, or do you have to pay an additional fee for it?
