T-Mobile UK rolling out Mango for Omnia 7 starting today

If you're on T-Mobile UK and have an Omnia 7, you'll be excited to know that starting today, the official-official Mango update for that device will begin rolling out.

The Omnia 7 (along with the AT&T Dell Venue Pro and Focus v1.4) were the only devices that had hiccups with the Mango update, requiring a little extra attention from Samsung in this case. That has caused a delay by only a few weeks but for some who want those drivers it feels like an enternity.

No word on any new features like tethering, so let us know if you find anything.

  • HAPPY HALLOWEEN!! Thanks for the update, getting info from t mobile has been like drawing blood from a stone.
  • Just tried, nothing yet, soo excited! Its been too long since all my other friends got it.
  • MANGO incoming! WOOT
  • God this has taken forever. Now I can use all the mango updates and apps, Facebook, Guardian, Sushi Bar, Groupon.... loads.
  • updating now.
  • Just received the update notification on my DT-branded Omnia 7 (i use it on Vodafone Greece)
  • Unexpected by very nice, just updated my wife's Omnia 7 (T-mobile UK) and the device now has Internet sharing available. So worth waiting for it seems! My own Omnia 7 (unbranded, using Vodafone) hasn't got this yet :-( Firmware/radio and bootloader versions are also updated to later versions (2424.11.9.4/2424.11.9.1/5.9.3.).
  • Focus 1.4...
  • Still can't get it, I've tried the force method over 20 times already.
  • Mango goodness installed. I can confirm that the Internet Sharing is indeed present. Go to the settings and there it is, sets up a WiFi hotspot using WPA2 encryption.I've not tried it out yet as I don't get mobile data at home. Definitely trying it tomorrow at work though.
  • tried it out and it works fine. it doesn't cost anything extra though, right?
  • Just got my mango few hours ago, yaaaay!Although I found the update process was taking like forever to finish (or maybe I was just impatiently waiting :D), I even fell asleep during the update and woke up four hours later with an "update successful" message.I've Got Mango In My Phone! XD
  • finally.......they took their own sweet time......I really got frustrated waiting so long.....Never again Tmobile...
  • Its not T-Mobile but the Samsung. The Omnia 7 needs a custom firmware update thus took so long. My next phone will not be a Samsung.
  • Oh....never thought of it like that....
  • Finally got Mango for my Omnia 7 on T-Mobile, its so awesome! loving it.
