    The update service from microsoft is way better than the update service for android. This is just a huge chaos :D
    Maybe it's bad for some providers, but my brother has a Samsung Facinate (I think that is what it's called) on Verizon, and it's a droid, and he said it's the easiest updating process of any phone he has owned. Now he has never had an iPhone, which is also easy, but still, if it is worse than the updates for WP7, like you say, then why have I never read much complaining on sites like Engadget that are more neutral towards all OS'es?

    The update screen says I need 7+GB's of C drive memory to create a back up of my phone. Sound right to anyone?

    Ditto....I've been on step 8 of 10 for what feels like hours. This definitely will be worth the wait though. :)

    I feel ya! I am on the install phase (7 of 9) on the 7720 install. The install bar on the phone looks about 3/4 of the way done.

    MERE MINUTES AWAY FROM MANGO!!!!

    I turned off the data as it was only the wifi that needs to be on when you execute the search. :)
    Thanks! I think that worked!

    So you have another install after that one then. The 7720 update is 9 steps. I had to do the 10 step update too.

    Just DO NOT disconnect your phone after step 10 because it will automatically start the second update afterwards.

    Yes, the second update is faster.

    Nope, this is Mango, it's 10 steps for me. It just restarted though so it looks like I'm done.

    The point is that you get for one phone this and that update, for the next one no update, then you can buy totally new phones with an old version and no update possiblity and just the provider/manufactorer decides which update he rolls out and which not.

    There is really no system in it. And with the next Update google trys to build in such a system Let's see if this works, but at the moment updating on android is only chaos.

    Really? Everybody else I have talked to said it was a 9 step.

    I had two updates and the first was 10. Weird.

    Anyways, it must depend on the phone then I guess. I have an HTC Arrive.

    Ok :)
    The problem isn't Android on the phone, the problem is androids update service as a whole. Microsoft handles this better. Even NoDo was better than Android ^^

    The best Update Service has the iphone, but that's easy because everything comes from apple ^^

    Edit: @TaliZora: Mango has 9 Steps for me. It's doing 7/9

    Damn, try as I might, after skipping the 7403 update three times (because I wasn't sure what it was), I can't seem to get the damn thing to pop up again. I'm taking a break from it as I'm pulling my hair out.

    My samsung focus update failed with 80180048 :(
    FYI, if you get this error that means you Walshed your phone. Running the Walsh support tool (found: “Walshed” Phone Support Tool: official fix to get you back on track - Chris Walsh) fixed the issue, and i'm on my way!

    Seems like the firmware does come even with forcing Mango.

    Literally can't remember the last time I was frustrated about something tech related and I am in IT for a living.

    I can't get it to work for the life of me. I am on try 34 and every single time it does one of two things. It either tells me My phone is already up to date (which I am assuming I pull the plug on my Ethernet too late, or it tells me it can't check at this time (which I am assuming I pull the plug too early)

    I have restarted both Zune and my computer countless times, I have data and WiFi turned off on my phone. I have done every variant possible and I am about ready to call it quits.

    Anyone have any tips for me or do I just keep doing it till I hit around 100 before I say the **** with it and fire up a Galaxy II?

    Leave your wifi (On your phone) ON but the data off. Then try it again. Worked for me

    Man I have tried that too.

    With my PC disconnected and WiFi on my phone turned on Zune will still tell me my phone is up to date.


    This may be the straw that breaks the camel's back for me.

    Thank you thank you thank you thank you! I had been trying for legit half an
    hour to absolutely no avail and THIS WORKED! What was confusing was that I don't have a SIM in my Focus, so to me, "data off" means "wi-fi off". For the life of me, I don't understand why any of this works, but now I"m on Step 7/10! THANK YOUUUUUU!
