Official: Mango rolling out across all US carriers

Seems that the green light has been shown for the US to receive Mango, which ties in with recent reports from Sprint and other operators. We expect to see the rollout gradually reach everyone so don't freak should you not receive the notification immediately. For those who are on builds newer than NoDo, be sure to have backups at hand, especially if you're on leaked RTM. Be sure to let us know when you receive the update, good luck!

Note that on AT&T: "Delivery has begun for the HTC Surround, LG Quantum, and Samsung Focus v. 1.3. The HTC HD7S is currently Scheduling, while the Samsung Focus v. 1.4 is Testing and the Dell Venue Pro is in Planning."

See Where's My update? for more information. Thanks ousooner314 and everyone else for the heads up!

Official: Mango rolling out across all US carriers

it's not over yet. If MS really learned something, we'll know once people start getting the update and no major problems show up. Can you imagine Google releasing a major update to all its phones at the same time? Ok, well may be within two weeks? Yeah, I can't imagine that either LOL

well I just plugged in my focus into my Mac and no update yet :(. Remember at&t said they would be one of the first, NOT the first to send out the update. If they don't send it out first, I'll never believe the whole "Premier partner" cr@p

You can tell Microsoft didn't want a repeat of the Nodo update fiasco. I wonder how much sooner some of us would have gotten are updates if they'd done the gradual roll-out as they were ready route again.

Freaking awesome!! From the looks of it so far, definitely much better handled than NoDo. Glad to see MS learning and correcting...kudos!!

Let's not give them too much credit. This thing is WAY overdue. The big simultaneous rollout (so long as you don't have a Venue or a v1.4 Focus) is a big plus, but WP7 is not developing fast enough. Multitasking and alot of other Mango features should have been when NoDo rolled out. The competition is adding features faster than MS and if these updates don't speed up they'll only be farther behind.

I'm just pragmatic. I like WP7 and want it to work, to be successful.Are we really giving MS a pat on the back for not **** things up? Is that how low the expectations are? It's absurd that there hasn't been a single update or feature added since NoDo 6+ months ago. And they've botched the PR around this Mango rollout with most of the blog world clamoring for it 2 and 4 weeks ago. Mango looks terrific and much needed. I'm pumped to get it and it's nice that I don't have to wait for AT&T to get off their **** and get it to me while every other carrier finished like with NoDo. But "Freaking awesome!!" this process hasn't been.

Anybody using the RTM version getting the update available notice? Hoping I don't have to roll back me and my family's focus phones ;p

"Anybody using the RTM version getting the update available notice? Hoping I don't have to roll back me and my family's focus phones ;p "of course you will have to roll back. You wont get an update if your build number is the rtm one..

I was running the leaked RTM but now it shows that a Samsung update is available in Zune. is this what you are talking about?

Signed up just to say that my Focus is currently upgrading itself via the Zune software! :) I was on the developer beta all this time, so I'm assuming this is the first of the two upgrades for me... signed up just to post this exciting exciting news! :)Mango! here at last!

Awesome. I just plugged in my phone at 1:04, prompted me for an update. (My phone never told me there was one) Of course I accepted. It is currently backing up at 32%.Verizon HTC Trophy - Michigan

Come on Lukas, you better not be lieing! ha ha ha I'm at work and I have an HD7 through T-Mobile as well. CAnnot wait to get home! ha ha ha *cough cough* think i'm coming down with something.....ha ha ha ha

Just got the prompt to update when I plugged in my phone! Was running dev beta and it's upgrading straight to 7720!

HTC Trophy with Dev Beta 2 just updated. I got the notification on my phone too. I'm in West Texas btw. The update took only 7 minutes.

Another Verizon Trophy being updated. I am running the leaked RTM and it found an HTC update. RTM handsets look good to go.

Good. Can someone tell me if the LG Quantum with 7.5 has a decent Remote Desktop program? All the ones listed in the Marketplace seem to be either junk or cost money. Does the tethering hack still work? I can't stay on WM 6.5 forever for chrissakes. WP 7.5 is a big step forward from WP 7, but still lags behind WM 6.5 for business use. We don't give two sh-ts about Facebook or Twitter. In fact, we'd prefer them to be removed.

My mom's Focus is getting the Mango update as we speak. I'm rather jealous because I too have a v1.3 and didn't get the notification yet :-(

10% of customers, according to the windowsphone.com blog, are getting it first this week. Your mom is one of those 10% apparently...

H-m-m, for the last 15 minutes Zune tells me:"Please wait while we determine the amount of disk space required to complete the update".UPDATE: Everything worked out fine :-D

Thought I was the only one. I thought my update was done, but my phone still says there is an update available and Zune is telling me the same thing.

Yes, the phone is working and updated to 7720.68 - but I still have this message. H-m-m... should I try to cancel this?

OK, I pressed "Cancel" and nothing bad happened - it offered me another update :-) ("clean-up" update for developer phones)

"This update will clean-up any Beta update provisioning on your phone so that it can begin receiving updates from production Microsoft Update servers."Sounds good to me!

Sweet! Mine offered the same option too. Just for future reference it is an update called BETA Cleanup and it is to allow the phone to receive future updates from Microsoft. "This update will clean up any beta update provisioning on your phone so that i can begin receiving updates from production Microsoft update servers."

YEAH!!! Verizon Trophy being updated now!!!!!!!!!!!God Bless you MS!!!Mango Mango Mango!will check tonight for my wife's HTC HD7 on Tmobile

I have a Samsung Focus, 1.4, which has Mango Beta Dev 2 on it, and it's updating just fine via Zune as i am typing this right now.

***********************For everybody not seeing the update!The same trick for Nodo Works for Mango. If you are not seeing the update, go back into zune, hit the update button and disconnect from the internet. The update will appear. Updating to Mango from ATT Focus v1.3.

What a time consuming update. One hour to backup and then two updates before 7720. It is what it is though. Glad I brought the laptop to work so I could update on company time :-)

7.0 Phone is up to date as of 1 min ago.. This blows... NY should get the update before middle america!! WTF! LoL!

I'm was using the RTM and I'm now recieving an update as I type this. So looks like rollback isn't needed. I know more when it's done. Also my apologies to T-Mobile and my fellow posters for my whining over the past 2 days. With this rollout happening now and T-Mobile formally announcing the Radar 4G seems I had them all wrong. :D

Is it an AT&T device and what version you are running? I'm also on 1.4 and 7392 but didn't get the update notification

Nop. Im running a dev unlocked focus 1.3 on att and nothing yet. Tried the NoDo trick and that didn't work either

Updating my arrive as we speak no need to roll back from mango from the RTM, awesome I get to keep all my text and games :)

I can confirm that those running Mango RTM will be able to upgrade ! I just did! Did not get a notification on my phone, but when I plugged it to Zune... Bam! Upgrade available! Samsung Focus on ATT.

My update on a Verizon Trophy running RTM went through just fine. I still can't seem to use the connected media DLNA app from HTC though, so there might still be some issue.Can anyone who wasn't running the RTM on a trophy tell me what their firmware versions are now?Mine are Firmware 2305.13.20104.605bootloader 2.1.230513.4

I'm curious about this also. I haven't gotten the update yet, but I would still like to know if everything is correct when I do install it. Just for reference, my phone running the RTM hasFirmware: 2305.06.10322.605Bootloader: 1.3.230506.23

I did the internet plug out thing and it found me an update, it found me 7392 update (I'm on Samsung Focus 7390 rev 1.3 and ain't supposed to get it, only rev 1.4 get it) Updating right now, hope after it I';; be able to update to Mango. This is *****P.S. Does anyone know about this? Should I do the update?

Plugged my trophy into zune and got the notification. It seems I have to double update through 7392 so I'm gonna wait til I get home from school since the wifi here is spotty and I'm on battery with my computer.

Um. HTC Surround. 7712. Should I revert to NoDo for the HTC firmware or will that come automatically with this update? I had some major issues with firmware for this phone back in the NoDo days and I REALLY do not want to go through that again.... Thoughts?

No, just stay where you are, no need to roll back. I was running 7712 on my Trophy and when I plugged it in I got the alert. I didn't have to do anything other than say yeah go ahead, it cleaned it all up and installed 7720.68.I am not a dev, so the 7712 I was running was the one a lot of us installed, not really offical, but not completely unofficial either. :) BUT the up shot is I didn't have to do anything, the update went as smooth as one could hope for.

EDIT: Two minutes after I post this, my update notice arrives. I tried to delete this post, but that was a no go.Okay, but why can't we get the roll out to all phones on AT&T at the same time? Why must we wait for message from AT&T versus just downloading the update right now via Zune or Windows Connector? Apple does this just fine by providing the update to everyone at the same time via iTunes.

I didn't get a message from AT&T, I just plugged in my Focus to Zune, and There is was... I will say, I had like 3 updates, one from Samsung. They did take some time finding them. For example, my phone was connected to the computer for like 5-7 minutes before it found the last update. Hope this helps.

Got my Samsung Focus rev1.3 updated just fine - Mango is working beautifully and I LOVE IT. The only thing I've noticed that isn't working right, is the Facebook integration - it says Attention Needed in my accounts/email settings page, and I cannot get my list of online friends to show up for Facebook Chat. anyone else seeing this?

Yes, for my Yahoo email as well. I fixed it by deleting the account, and re-adding it with the same info, and it was fixed. =)

If I have the leaked RTM (7720.68) how do I know if the update worked? Should there be Sprint stuff in my apps list? The update on Zune said "HTC update"...should it say Sprint if it is the Mango update?

At 4pm CST I updated to 7392 and then left for work.Verizon TrophyFirmware revision #: 2305.06.10322.605Bootloader version: 1.3.230506.23
