Microsoft updates My Phone

Microsoft has recently updated its My Phone service. The new version is 1.06.22718.01.  What's in the update? So far nothing stands out and the update is listed as "fixes and enhancements based on your feedback."

The next time you sync your Windows Phone with My Phone you will be prompted for the update. Once you download and install the update, soft reset your phone, and you'll be back in business.

Don't have My Phone yet? Simply point your Windows Phone browser to to download and install the application to your phone. Full official release after the break.

Dear My Phone User,

We’ve just updated the My Phone backup service to provide fixes and enhancements based on your feedback.  The next time you sync, you will receive a notification on your phone to update the My Phone software.  The content you have already synced will remain unchanged and can be managed online.

Have you logged into the My Phone website lately?  Sure My Phone provides peace of mind with automatic backup, as well as find and protect your lost phone features.  But here are a few tips and features that you may not know about:

1)      Quickly update and manage your contacts conveniently from your PC.  You can even add photos to your contacts from your desktop with just a few clicks of your mouse.  Just login to the My Phone website, go to Contacts, and select the contacts that you wish to update.

2)      Easily download, upload and share your photos.  Getting pictures on and off your phone can sometimes be a tricky task, but My Phone makes it simple.  Not only can you download Photos from your phone to your PC, but you can also upload photos from your PC to your phone, as well as quickly share photos from your phone or PC with Windows Live, Facebook, MySpace and Flickr.  When you login to My Phone, your most recent Photos are right there on the home page.  Select the photos that you wish to upload, download or share.

3)      Use Wi-Fi to sync your content.  My Phone will sync over Wi-Fi when available.  If your phone can connect to the Wi-Fi in your home or office, then you won’t have to worry about cellular data usage.

The My Phone team is excited about the continued success of our service.  We were recently chosen as a finalist for the GSMA 2010 Best Mobile Internet Service and continue to see new users across the globe every day.

Thank you for using My Phone.  We hope you continue to enjoy our service.
