    LG Quantum update worked perfectly. No problems or glitches whatsoever. Got to give Microsoft (and AT&T) credit for improving the process dramatically over the NoDo fiasco.

    Samsung Focus 1.3 on ATT worked great. Did get a hangup on the security update but switched USB ports and it worked fine.

    Update worked great for me on my Samsung Focus 1.3 on ATT. I forced the update. It hung a little on the 'verifying space requirements' part for the 7403 update. But, I canceled/restarted that and it went through flawlessly ;)

    Phone is with Sprint: HTC Arrive


    The update was not coming so I used the Force method posted on this forum.

    Took some time to get it to work, though: On a Dell Latitude 4250 using verizon 4g mifi. I had to throw the wifi hardware switch on the laptop a split second after clicking update a second time. I think this is because the hardware switch is just a shortcut to the software switch. I say this because whenever I use the switch windows does not notify the connection is lost until about three seconds later. I also did the "change" on PRL and Profile, before the update (as suggested by another Arrive model user), though profile gave me an error message. Not sure doing this did anything - instead it seems just turning off the wifi switch much earlier did the trick.

    One scary moment: Because I got a new 2nd computer (used for the update) Zune updater warned me i was connected as a "Guest" as this is "not my primary computer". It warned that I might lose data like photos, etc but it worked fine with no loss

    After the update, several reboots, I was concerned that Zune showed 7.1 but in the phone it shows Windows Phone is 7.5 under Settings | About.

    Now off to find out why all my tiles are red and learn the new features!

    HTC Arrive updated great. It actually updated to Mango without me prompting it. I was only updating to 7403 and then it updated to Mango 7720 for me.

    Experience - Was pretty smooth for me. I didn't get any notifications on my phone and when I plugged in my phone and checked Zune it didn't show the updates either. I used the "force update" procedure listed here and it worked perfectly. I only ran into a slight hiccup trying to get the second update (it hung on the checking for update screen for about 20 minutes) but other than that it went very well. Now I just gotta explore my phone and find/try all the new stuff! :)

    Smooooth like silk. Once, that is, I forced it.

    So sue me, I can be an impatient sort.
    Aside from the forcing issue, I'm LOVING the update! So much cleaner functionality, so many new features to explore!

    I was under a rock and had not heard of the 9-27-11-for-1.3-devices announcement when I connected my phone last night to sync 130 music tracks I had downloaded Monday night. Zune prompted me to update as soon as I connected, and I installed 7.1.7392 and 7.10. 7720.68 successfully yesterday on a V1.3 ATT-issued Focus. Several planned restarts, but no errors or other problems. The only issue I ran into up front was that I did not have sufficient free space on my computer to do the backup it does prior to the installs, and was notified as much. I closed Zune, disconnected the phone, freed up space, and reconnected the Black Beauty. I got the prompt again and all went smoothly after that. Total elapsed time was about 2 hours, most of which was taken by the backup routine. Mango itself came in two installments and took 30 minutes. I gained about a gig of available memory on a 36.9GB total memory install. I am especially relieved that my 32GB-format was not a barrier, and its flawless operation does not appear to have been altered. In honor of my successful install, I am running in Mango "accent" for 7.5 days. Salud to all! :)

    No, something definitely went wrong with your update. It's supposed to be on the 'back' of the phone when it's completed successfully.

    How was my update experience? Well I'm glad you asked...Here's how it went:

    I got home from a long day at work and turned the TV on to watch a baseball game(Atlanta and Philly). After an unsuccessful attempt Tuesday I decided to try updating again.

    Powered up the HP and went to pour myself a glass of Scotch while said laptop was booting. Connected my phone and brought up the instructions for forcing Mango. Followed the first couple of steps and viola!!...there's an update available(yay!)

    As the update is going through the process I decided to watch the movies i got from Netflix today....pop in Thor(hammer!! hammer!!) and refill my glass(mmm...Scotch)

    Once I was done with the first update the phone rebooted and lo and behold there's another update(yeah boyeeee!!).....now it's Mango time!!

    Another reboot and I was official...had 7720 on my HTC Arrive...I'm feeling good right now(Mango and scotch...a great combination..lol). I check a couple of things and decide to just relax and finish watching my movie. I'll get into more Mango action the next day....

    In my best Dave Chappelle imitation....I'm Mangoed beotch!!

    at this time I'd like to dedicate a song to IOS and Android...Amazon.com: For Doz That Slept [Explicit]: Black Sheep: MP3 Downloads
    :lol:

    My first real experience with Mango today.

    I was taking art class in college using a picture I took as reference and while the paint was drying I decided to take another picture.

    Hold the camera button, took the picture quickly with a touch of the screen, no sound to distract my fellow students, tagged my best friend and uploaded the picture.

    The music that was playing was pretty cool so I press the bing button, bing music, waited a couple of seconds and done.

    Press the home button and I had a notification on the me tile, my friend responded my picture, I posted back. Hold the back button and was on my reference picture again.


    No apps, just Mango.

    I had a great upgrade experience on my HD2 running the 7720 RTM Mango release. The upgrade took about 10 minutes. I first experienced an error on step 5. I only had to disconnect the phone and reboot it and the pc then start over. Easy!!!!

    I really don't see a difference but that isn't a bad thing as Windows Phone Mango is a great OS that simply works with the basics for a great phone experience integrated straight out the box. My wife's HD2 blanked out on us and TMobile is out of stock so she had to get a LG G2X two days for a replacement. The hardware is great but the software of Android (2.3) just isn't up to par starting with the interface, contact integration, group messaging out of the box, messaging in general and calendar usage. Thank you Windows for stepping up your game and giving my HD2 life again!
