    Hmm... seems to have stopped doing it now. I've got a feeling this is related to my volume issue where it decides to turn down by itself, as well as stopping and resuming mid-track... (hardware issue).

    Sorry, I was in a rush and didn't clarify. The drop down player is constantly there whilst I'm playing music. I noticed it when I used my phone to check the time. After repeated checks, it was still there.
    Oh, that's an issue... That is supposed to autohide after 3 sec or so! Mango'd Focus and Focus S autohide the dropdown quickly.

    Do you have any other music apps that may be somehow causing it to do this?
    Are there any background-capable tasks that may be causing this?

    EDIT: kk, see it's probably resolved :)

    Certainly seems to be. Thanks all the same. :)

    I think I may have been monitoring my phone too closely since the update and noticed something that would have been there before.

    Same here. Does anybody know if it's coming to the Arrive? Is that considered "first gen" which I hear are the phones getting the update?
    if it did come to arrive you can bet on sprint's network not supporting it with their dialup level speeds.

    I've yet to receive this firmware update, Orange UK branded Mozart. :( I hope it comes soon!
    Me neither..

    I wonder how or why some are getting the updates some don't, what criterion is microsoft or HTC is using?

    My friend and I are using exactly the same HD7, same location, same carrier., but he got the update since a couple of days ago. I still don't till now.

    Can we use the force trick anyone?

    Well if watching Netflix without a hitch and downloading games in under a minute is "dial-up speeds" than I guess I will just have to suffer through it :)

    I would guess branded vs unbranded? If orange don't want you to have tethering, you may *never* get it.

    hmm, not seeing the 7740 digits in my HTC Arrive about info, but just noticed tonight that I had a missed call and my LED light was blinking green unitl I checked my voice mail! Didn't do that before!

    Just had to reset my wireless router settingsbecause the phone forgot how to connect. Wonder if I got a partial update?

    The 7740 update and the HTC update aren't the same thing I think.

    My arrive has always blinked the LED for missed calls / new voicemail. It just has never done it for text messages.

    EDIT: think I've fixed it - my network was on channel 13. Changed it to 11 and it works again. Weird!
    Have you since rebooted your phone and tried to reconnect?

    guess u live near a golden tower then, where I live the sprint 3G is like dialup and is unusable before 2am and sometimes I'll cut down to 1x which makes the situation worse. I'm currently in the process of switching to T-mobile and currently my speeds are tons better even tho occasionally in my bedroom I'll drop to EDGE which is still faster than sprint.

    Still not getting them (both 7740 and HTC Wifi sharing). Should I be worried?

    I hate this. I wish they are more informative about this updates thing and not let us in the dark as to when we should be getting updates. Why not give me date so I don't have to keep checking anxiously.

    Also, should I connect to Zune to check for available updates? or my phone should also notify me without being connected to zune? my phone is always connected either to 3G or Wifi.

    LOL golden tower.

    I actually am switching to T-Mobile too. I just really need a phone with internet sharing and the HTC Radar does that. Also if you buy the phone outright you can pay only $59 / month for unlimited text and web with 450 minutes. That's a good deal in my opinion. I have also heard that with the HTC Radar it doesn't check your account with internet sharing so you don't have to pay any extra for it!

    P.S. Yes, I know T-mobile doesn't have REAL unlimited data like Sprint. Sprint is full-speed all the time. T-Mobile they cut your speeds down after you go over 2GB. That's fine with me.

    Anyone here State's side with an Arrive getting the update? I've still got Sprint and the 7720. What's in the update anyway? maybe I missed the description.

    Would trying to force it like I did to get Mango early work? Anybody have luck doing that?

    I have the HD7 with internet sharing and I'm on the $30 prepay plan with 100 talk, unlimited text and 5GB of data, couldn't do 2GB I'd be over that in a week and a half. I'm already over 1GB so far and I just started this plan last Friday.

    I have flashed my HD7 with the leaked official Mango version.
    Is this the reason I didnt get any of the updates ? (Microsoft 7740 and HTC tethering)

    Or is it my country/operator ?

    Has any of you with the leaked ROM get any of the updates?

    My Mozart was flashed with the leaked Mango official ROM, and I got the HTC update fine. The 7740 one might just not have rolled out to everyone yet.
