    Did you debrand your phone by the way ?

    I have had the Samsung Zone disappear before, turn off, and turn back on the phone fixed it..

    If not did you downloaded wireless manager or update it in the past. If so then it should be in your app purchase history in your live account. And you can reinstall it that way

    my phone is not debranded. I tried going to my purchased apps and reinstalling it from the web, but that didn't work. I just says app not found. It says that for all of the samsung apps like "Now" etc that I've downloaded in the past. I even clicked on a few HTC apps that I previously downloaded when I had my HTC HD7 just to see what would happen even though I knew they wouldn't install on a Samsung phone. Same thing "app not found". I must be honest though, I did do a factory reset this morning because I couldn't figure out to get rid of those letters in the app list. And prior to that I never checked to see if my data was working after I updated to Tango because I've been at home on wifi for a few days. You think maybe this has something to do forcing the Tango Update?

    Not sure how you could loose the Samsung Zone

    Did you Try doing it the same thing but with the phone via Wifi or Plugged into Computer since you have no data connection.

    APN data got wiped out for me has well when I did the 8107 manual update, and when I got Tango via Zune it got wiped out again. I am not sure if this is something that everybody has to do. Or if Only the Flash Users with WireLess Manager Config's running that we have to rebuild the APN?

    Once you get over 40 or 45 + apps installed then you get the Alphabet List for Apps, no way to prevent it, but, with Tango 8773 they fixed the bug where if you removed apps and got below that number the alphabet list will disappear.

    ==============

    Another 8 hour day of work, battery 58% once again. Battery life has been improved with both the Tango Update and Firmware Update for Sure..Almost a Week Now since I have had the update's installed and overall cell reception, performance, gps, battery life all have improved.

    Tried this last night - Offline GPS Turn by Turn. Set Direction's to Girlfriend house and then turned off cell data. And started my drive. The GPS kept up and Turn by Turn still worked has long has I did not change the direction's that the phone was expecting..Miss One turn and it want's new direction's and require's a data connection to get them. Thought I would mention that..

    when i restored my 7720 backup, Samsung Zone is there, but not the AT&T hub. so i did a factory reset while still on 7720 so I could start from scratch and now the AT&T hub is there, but not Samsung Zone. It seems like the only way to keep Samsung Zone on my phone (which i need because I need Wireless Manager) is to not do a factory reset on neither 7720 or 8773 and just live with the letters in my app list. They won't go away no matter how many apps I delete. i just can't win

    Mmmm I have the same problem of the "hacked" xml file...
    I can't update after doing that, the problem here is that I need to have my phone hacked to be able to use tethering since I'm not using at&t...

    O_o

    Anyway, the only update I'm missing is the firmware update, the radio software and the bootloader are already in their last version

    Do you guys think it would make a lot of difference to install the last firmware update or not?

    Did you also get the firmware update? On my Focus Flash my battery life is greatly improved. The first day it did seem kinda worse, but after a day or so improved.

    I saw your post on XDA hopefully they can answer better than me.

    But I will repost the info for Us Flash and Omina W users has to why you lost your tethering after tango update..

    Source XDA

    WARNING!! The Tango update restores the Microsoft server URL's for checking unlock status! This means, that if you unlocked your phone, using an ALTERNATIVE method, like the OLD chevron tool, Interop Unlock by Heathcliff74, or WindowBreak, your phone will relock itself!! - UPDATE: Snickler, Jaxbot and me have figured out a possible work-around for the Tango-relock. Jaxbot has written a guide for it.
    Possible Solution and Fix

    If you have already upgraded to Tango, then you would need to restore back to previous version 8107 or eariler and follow what is listed above at WindowsPhoneHackers!!

    i find that battery life sucks after tango update on omnia w:@
    check your background apps,
    How is your signal and connect via 3g, HSPA, etc? after the firmware update
    give it a day or two.

    Like I said mine seemed worse initially but after a day it really changed, maybe yours will be the same way?
    I had a real crappy battery day the other day like 38% after normal routine at work, but, the next day things where back to normal at 55%.

    WPCentral was a little more active but that is only thing running in background for me toast notifaction, beside email checking, text's..etc..

    And without cellular data turned on 80% after 8 hours of music..

    Reverted back to 8107 after week on 8773....battery life didn't improved....i guess this problem is only faced by Omnia w users due to firmware update...as reported by users on xda...so reverted and moreover this update doesn't bring much new mms I don't use...

    The past two days my battery life has been well below crappy, yesterday, I was off from work. So I just left the phone on with cellular data turned on from 7am to 2pm, much like I would at work. But no music and by 10am battery was already down to 55% at 2-3 bars.

    And today pretty much the same has well..by 10am this moring battery was at 50% and no music, just cell data turned on, only wpcentral running in background. email checking, text message a few,

    AT&T Data Reception in my Area has not been great has of late Only a few spots in Town do we actually get HSPA, else 3g with. I done some various test with my friend's Iphone 4g on AT&T Account with 3g/HSPA get the slighty better speeds than me at 3g only, 1500kb versus 1200kb on Net10/StraightTalk for me. But my phone was much faster at processing the data of course and returned results faster with dslreports/speedtest mobile browser test than iphone.

    So I decided to run a test and see if firmware may be the cause of battery draining..

    So have rolled back and been able to successfully restore back to 8107 with Firmware

    OS Version 7.10.8107.79
    Firmware 2103.11.10.1
    Hardware Revision 23.1.0.8
    Radio Software 2103.12.5.4
    Radio Hardware 0.0.0.6
    Bootloader 6.5.17.0
    Chip SOC 0.74.21

    Recharging battery now..And already Phone stating update is avialable.

    I going to test it for few days on 8107 and orig firmware, then update to tango but no firmware update, and see how things go. And try to determine if firmware update is cause or something in tango..

    with 2103.12.05.04 antenna voltage is at 3.850v..

    Can somebody check their antenna setting's that have firmware update installed..

    Dial ##634#
    Diagnosis Application should get installed if you do not already have it installed

    Type in *#197328640#, do not play around with anything I know trust me..

    Choose 1 - Debug
    Choose 9 - Antenna/ADC
    What does Voltage Read at the bottom?

    I'm still stuck at 7220. I just purchased the phone this week (AT&T) and I'm having one heck of a time trying to connect to Zune on my W7 laptop. However, I can connect fine on my Mac using the Windows Phone 7 connector. Ideas?

    Congrats on Picking a Windows Phone, Mango OS is great, Tango Update is a little faster,

    the flash is a great phone, despite it small screen size and hd. My only real complaint is camera, but, once you tweak the settings just right you can get good pics.

    Hopefully by the end of month AT&T will have rolled out Updates, Comes in spurts by Networks is how updates have been released.

    Zune not working, are you getting error message ?

    are you trying to do the zune trick and force update things ?

    You could always manually update your phone if you want to fix the disappearing keyboard bug that 8107 fixes.

    Updated first post with this info..

    Update:Some Users Have Reported Having Battery Problem's after the Samsung Firmware Update, I have noticed battery levels have been much lower after the firmware update & tango in particular the software radio that got updated has part of firmware release. The voltage appears to be much lower with firmware update and tango installed. Where has with Mango and Old Firmware voltage is much higher. I cannot rollback the software radio update because that is locked once it is installed. I need proper tool's and old firmware update to restore things back, and to verify for sure what I am seeing in diag's mode.

    So I am back to Mango 8107 with update Software Radio only. If battery life is crappy tommorrow then Wed and Thurs I will get on the phone to Samsung and report the issue that I am seeing since the firmware update was installed and uninstalled..

    i was stuck on 7720, i used cab sender to update to 7740, then the internet-zune trick to update to 8107. i stayed at 8107 because i wanted to keep my dev-unlock.

    however, i did a hard reset and set the phone up for my wife to use, plugged it into zune and had an update notification for 8112.

    i didn't install it, but it looks like att is now rolling out the updates.

    Good to hear that AT&T may actually stick to date of 27..

    If you install the Samsung Firmware Update, could your report back if you notice your battery draining faster after the updates.

    Well you can install Tango and hit cancel on the firmware update. If you have a good backup which zune should make you can always restore back to Mango.

    I am noticing about a 6 to 8% per hour drain with cellular turned on new firmware and Tango, Without cell turned on battery life is great can go all day long 8 hours+ of music battery down to 60% to 70%. With Cell Turned on battery drop's to 40% to 50% after 8 hours with Music and these backgrounds apps wpcentral, weather bug , yahoo & hotmail checking every hour..

    I'm not sure why I'm not having the battery drain that some of you report. Mine has been much improved since the updates. I always leave cell data on since I don't have WiFi at the office. My phone can usually last until I go to bed before it needs charged depending on the number of phone calls and how long they last.

    I have 4 email accounts that are polled. 2 every 15 minutes, 1 every 30 minutes and 1 every 2 hours. I have weather updated every 1 hour, and have CNN update on breaking news. I also use bing and the web sporadicly throughout the day, along with the people hub and the me tile for facebook. I also receive about 25 texts or so a day. So, it seems like mine is getting a good bit of data running through it and mine lasts a lot better. In fact right now mine is at 78% still and has been off of charge for over 4 hours now and still says I have 10 hours left.

    Not at work today. So I am not playing any music and have cellular data turned on 3 bars most of time. Been on Since 7:00 this morning, read 79% 11 hours left, 4 hours since unplugged from charger. So that is about 8% a hour for me. Which is about what you are seeing has well..I been a few places this morning and a few sites. Checking Gleek every hour or so..

    So at our present rate of about 8% we should easily last most of the day. I'm wondering then if maybe this case for some reason your's is struggling to maintain as high of a signal at your job and that maybe your cause for less battery life. When I first started this new job in a new town mine was worse than this, but has improved since the update. I would love to know if it would have improved though from my older job, because that was more of a struggle for it it seemed like to last and I didn't get as many texts in a day there.

    we can last all day without music and cell turned on. Or Music with no Cell , but, not both. Depending on activities with our phone once again.

    But for me It has to bee Area Coverage & Cell Reception once again for me at home is about the same has it at work. 2-3 bars. Speed test are about the same from both work and home. Net10/ST capped at 2mb over HSPA/3g..average around 1.2mb on a good day.. AT&T Data Coverage in my home town is not so great. 3g in part's / 4g in other's plenty of dead spot's which I may be in..

    But at least Tango is slighty faster at activities, we can send ringtone's now, we can add over 40 apps and remove them have the abc list disappear, and standard list reappaer. we do not lockup on receiving txt anymore. No more yellow screens when switching being certain apps or closing them Wpbench for example.

    Samsung Now is broken I noticed after Tango and Firmware Update, no live tile Weather Updates..
