    The latest rumor or whatever one might call it was for today and no news is no news and not good. Sorry guys with the HD7s. Maybe theres a problem but you'd think they would say something!

    You are correct - 50% - a hopeful Freudian slip, although as they have blessed the Forced Update, which works for pretty much everyone except those "in scheduling" in effect it's more like 90% can get Mango if they wish.

    My point was that a lack of information and updates inevitably leads to disappointed Customers. If they updated the page today, and said that the HD7 updade is nearly complete and looks to finish scheduling this week we'd know where we stand and would be happier.

    BTW, does anyone know why an organization with so much computing horsepower takes 10 days to "schedule" an Update? MSoft's comments about how important it is for the process to be random are interesting, but randomizing a few, what, hundred thousand HD7s Users (they wish!) should take about 50msec. It would be worthwhile for them to educate us about the process a bit more. If nothing else it would give us something interesting to read while we sit around plucking our eyebrows out waiting for the update :-)

    Forced update: not true. Despite dozens of tries every few days, no dice. I have RTM Mango on Verizon Trophy, so when it tells me I am up to date, that is technically true. Mostly waiting for the security update that preceded Mango yet was released by VZW as a step in the Mango update. If anyone on VZW has received the update notice while running RTM Mango (not the beta; the RTM), let me know. I am a little leery of missing it altogether.

    When there is an update whwther you can force it or MS releases it for VZN it will update to 7392 (the security update) then to 7412 or 7413 or some other number intermediate step and finally to the full mango version for VZN. The 7392 or equivalent as I said will be first Thats how the forced update work for my focus. With the force its a matter of timing the disconnect from the internet and in my case it worked when I was at home on the wired internet

    It truly is all about timing the disconnect. Are you using a laptop? I tried many times on my laptop at theoffice without sucess. Only when I cam home to the desktop was I aable to get it work. What device do you have and whats your location?

    I guess I'm one of the few remaining without the Mango update. If it doesn't come in for me by the end of October I'm just gonna force it. Til then, I'll just wait it out patiently and slightly angrily.

    Alas, PurpleYam, you are not alone. I spoke with Verizon techs yesterday: they can see that I need update; were surprised that it had not been pushed; and could not, despite trying, do a thing about it. They thought local (corporate) store might be able to do it, except that local store knows nothing about Trophy: when I called, they said they no longer even have Microsoft on any of their computers, so they cannot get Zune. I knew more about the update process than they did. They were awesome - really tried hard to help, but they have not been given anything to work with...

    They can't have *that* many Trophies to update... so unless they had to pull back for some reason, hard to imagine why still nothing, five weeks later.
