    I keep trying every possible combination, still nothing.

    Will it matter what version of zune software I'm running?
    I've got 4.8.2345.0

    What worked for me: Disabled WIFI on the phone and data. Hit the update and then turned my router off, a few seconds later boom, an update has been found. I find this really strange but i'm glad it's working. (Still updating)

    Does anyone know why it has this glitch ? My thought it that it must search the web for which serial numbers of phones it's doing the update or something of the likes and when it has no web connection it just says there's an update.
    Thanks for posting, i tried this and im actually updating my phone right now! Awesome method haha. Thank you!

    Worked like a charm on both my Windows 7 with Zune, and wife's Mac with Windows Phone Connector. I was on WIFI on both laptops, it all just comes down to the timing to allow the software to see and update, but not whether your device is allowed the update. It was about 2 seconds disconnect from wifi, wait till it says update available, then reconnect the WIFI. It was simple just took a few tries.

    UPDATE Your Zune Software before attempting. Mango Requires the latest zune to even see the update. If your phone was told there was an update when you plug it into your computer it will tell Zune it needs to update. Since we are forcing the update, zune needs to be updated manually. I updated my Zune software weeks ago in prep for this update.

    It checks the IMEI number against a database with the manufacturers. They have told it only to update 10% of the devices out there, if your not in the 10% the computers chose then you would have to wait. When you interrupt the check at just the right moment it works. Zune knows the update is available, when it gets the bounce back saying that your not allowed right now it says that there is no update, if you pull the connection the software does not get the bounce back and so it is non the wiser that your phone has not actually been selected to be updated.

    it seems zune only checks for the update through the phone itself...
    even with the pc connected to my router, if the data is off on the phone it always comes back unable to find the update service... :/

    This trick work perfectly for me, turning off my wireless connection worked first time, the only problem I had is that for some reason when the main Mango update was updating it kept dropping the wireless connection (which it never does normally) and cancelled the download with an error code, after a couple of times I plug it into my router via an ethernet cable hey presto my HTC Mozart is gleaming with Mango goodness! :D

    I was getting an error every time I would try to do the update trick. I was getting 80072FA8. I went to the backup I had on the Zune which brought me back to the old version. Updated to NoDo. Then I was able to do the Trick to Mango. Worked on the first try. Heck ya! Finally I'm good to go

    I JUST DONT GET IT. Its like my phone wont use the software to update, it will grab info form the phone EVERY TIME. So even if i kill my internet connection, It will just use data or wifi and still give me an "your phone is up to date" message.

    If i turn off wifi or data or grab updates from data option, I just get " cannot search for updates at this time" Its like the update feature is not using my computers internet to grab the update, just my phone.

    WHAT THE HECK COULD I BE DOING WRONG? its been 5 days and everyone I know with an arrive has gotten the update OTA or forced it. Im like the only one....

    I didn't use these methods since my computer is far away from my router.

    But I think I did manage to trick my computer.

    Normally I charge my phone using the wall charger, but as I just got an awesome new USB port (it looks like the TARDIS) I decided to switch it up and charge it via USB instead.

    As soon as I plugged it into my computer, it started updating. :3 It was quite a nice surprise.

    you can try I was using wireless internet on my lapyop and turned off data and turned on wifi and both off etc no luck worked first or second time with ethernet unplugging. I know the trick works I dont really know how it works I think that its a crap shoot on the timing of severing the internet connectionand then waiting o see update available once you got that it progressing through the 3 updates for the focus 1.3 . Patience is called for. Patience is the toughest part once it starts.

    Honestly, I think that trick will only works if you're in the current update batch. All you guys are doing is forcing the notification.

    It definitly works for people not in the update batch, theres a bunch of people in europe not scheduled to get updates for at least a few days to a few weeks and have it.


    I just got mine to work now. I had to turn wifi on the phone off and not my internet connection(data stayed off as well), I didnt even have to turn the wifi back on as the computer downloaded all the data instead, which i couldn't get it to do before.. Why did mine have to be all backwards :(

    Thank you for clarifying! Maybe my timing was off or I'm just not as ninja as I thought. So I figured I'd just go back to beta and get the notification that way, since I'm pro at doing it now! lol

    yea to be honest, ive seen about 7 different methods of getting this to work and i think you may have to try them all really. If you have to try hundreds of times you should probably try a diff method.

    the basic method is with everything on, unplug the net connection while using zune, but mine wasn't fooled by that, so i had to turn off data then shut off phone wifi when i pressed update, and that worked. Other people have different things they had to do to get it to work. I think its safe to say every method isnt for everyone. i think we should put up a list of different methods.

    FAQ: When eager #wp7 users "cut in line" for the Mango update, your wait doesn't get longer. We just add capacity automagically.

    @Dagolara nice! So by me cutting in line, capacity has increased, eliminating the bottleneck. So in theory, the rollout should go faster and smoother now, thanks to me and other eager beavers? :P
