    Two LG applications will not update it says i must update the handset. Its fully updated to my knowledge (the Zune client tells me so 7.0 7392). The LG apps are Panorama shot and ScanSearch.

    At first i thought it could just be those applications but I wanted to try the flower game (the free one) and I got the same message:
    "You need to update your phone using the Zune software on your computer. Some Zune and Marketplace experiences may be limited until you have updated."

    I have reset the phone and rebooted. Checked that cookies are allowed in IE. These did not make any difference.

    I just got the handset which is the LG E900 optimus 7 and i have never used WP7 so I could be messing something.

    Thanks for any help.

    what network are you on? ( carrier)

    - go to setting --> phone update , make sure it says no update found ( and check it manually if its not set to auto )
    - did you try a HARD reset? ,

    Yeah. Everything is English (United Kingdom)

    I tried changing everything to Germany but language. This did not change anything.

    I also check that my windows live ID was set to United Kingdom. Which it is!

    Any more ideas :)

    lol , not really ,

    the only other thing i can think of , is to downgrade back to Pre-NODO update , then RE-update your phone ,

    but u need a pre-nodo backup to downgrade , you might be able to find a copy if you google it or try to ask people here that might have one for a LG, i have the FOCUS so mine wont help you.

    On another forum someone suggested that these applications have already been updated for mango since he can update these applications on mango and before he updated to mango much like me he could not update these very same apps. On the same phone.

    I may update to mango now i know how to change the ROM`s on the phone. If i do i shall confirm whether this works or not for other users.

    I'm on NoDo and both Panorama Shot and Scansearch are missing from the LG app store. It's odd because I see an update from Scansearch even though the app is missing and basically it won't let me update.

    Can anyone else confirm if these two apps are missing on other markets?

    I did a search for both on my Mango Focus and they don't appear to be available.

    Just checked on my Quantum (NoDo, USA) and both aren't there. It's a shame Panorama Shot was a nifty app.

    You wouldn't have them since they were LG specific apps.

    Well, the story is on the front page now:

    LG quietly makes their apps Mango-compatible in the Marketplace | wpcentral | Windows Phone News, Forums, and Reviews

    So, they're being updated to mango. We'll have to wait for it to see them again.

    Also, Play To is gone as well, por the same reasons I presume.
