    That ought to teach "them" a lesson.
    Just upgraded a T-Mobile Lumia 710 via Zune. No stomping required.

    The update trick wasn't working for me yesterday, but I tried it today and the updates are coming through.

    I had to do it each time for each update though.

    Hopefully someone more tech-wise can explain this to me. If T-Mobile is saying that you can do the Tango update, why is my firmware holding me back until at least August 1st when it comes from Microsoft? This seems really weird to me that my carrier has to approve it, but it comes from Microsoft??? All I want is Tango so my keyboard stops going away without potentially missing more updates and/or risk voiding my warranty.

    I finally got the update trick to work. I realize it's pretty lucky to disconnect at the right time, but at least the first update is the disappearing keyboard, which I can live without the rest until Microsoft updates me August 1st or later (according the TMobile support). That said, I'm of course going to try to get the rest of the updates in hopes I can get my wife to leave her iPhone behind in 10 months.

    Two 710s in my household, both are still on 7740. It would be nice to know where I am in the update queue...

    Your phone will notify you.

    Just make sure you have "Notify me when new updates are found" in the Phone Update section of Settings. And if you don't mind it using a little 3G/4G data, put a check on "Use cellular data..." as well.

    If it is the one saying it can't check for updates right now, then you simply didn't disconnect the internet at the right moment. If you want this trick to work you'll have to try again and again. It's a small window to hit, somewhere between 1 and 3 seconds. I noticed that it's rather random luck to hit it the right exact time: first update was about 2, second and last just over a second. Just keep trying, it'll work.

    Still no update here (710, Tmo, US). I meant to do the trick to force it to appear but I'm actually curious to know when it will appear if I let it appear on its own.

    its not the internet. I was capable of updating to 8112, but I can't update to 8773 because I get error code 80070017. Any advice? I've attempted formatting and a couple tricks, but they haven't worked.

    Still have not had the update show up for me. Rogers 710 unlocked...Zune says it is up to date still...any ideas? Is it possible that it is normal to take this long to get the notification? Thanks

    I was able to get my phone to update using the "trick" that gets you to:

    1) turn off WiFi and cell data in the phone
    2) plug the phone into the PC using USB
    3) open Zune if it did not auto load.
    4) click on update and 2 or 3 seconds after you click update either unplug your Ethernet cable or disable your connection.
    5) Zune will detect an update 8112 most likely.
    6) reconnect your internet or enable it
    7) click update now and wait for the first update to finish.
    8) repeat steps 4-7 and you will get update tango update.

    It does work but timing is everything. If tour too fast to drop your connection you will get an error and if ur too slow you will get the "your phone is up to date" msg. But it does work. Just remember to re-enable your data on the phone after the update so everything works. Hope this helps.

    I couldn't wait anymore so I used the trick. Works great!

    It didn't work at first because I didn't remember to re-connect your internet connection. :blush:

    Best timing to disconnect connection for me was to wait for the progress bar to be full and then disconnect right away (but not lightning fast).
