THE WINDOWS PHONE 7 (WP7) update process is becoming a protracted embarrassment not only for Microsoft but for Samsung as well.
Despite stopping the update process for the Omnia 7, amongst other handsets, the restart was expected to see a smooth update for Samsung's WP7 handset, but no such luck. The Vole's forum Microsoft Answers is providing no such thing, as users post complaints about updates timing out and more error codes.
Today one frustrated Omnia 7 users who goes by the name Philstera on the forum said, "Dont you guys have any answers yet apart from reboot the phones? This must be the 10th time Ive tried to install the update am I wasting my time, each time I have removed more apps, more music until not there is not much on the phone and it all has to be reinstalled."
Since February the HTC Trophy 7, LG Optimus 7 and Samsung Omnia 7 WP7 handsets have had problems with the update, which does not even provide any new features. The update is intended to prepare the phone for an update that is expected to provide the 'cut and paste' feature but little else. µ
