Some people are frustrated that the Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update has started rolling out to others, but is not being offered for their device.
Fortunately there is a workaround and we are happy to share it if you just can't wait to get Mango onto your handset. We have tried this successfully and are not aware of any downsides at this stage.
These are the steps:
- Start the Zune Client 4.8
- Go to ‘Settings’
- Select ‘Phone’
- Click ‘Update’
- Wait about 1-2 seconds – now unplug your internet connection (for instance by unplugging the network cable to your PC)
- Within a few seconds you should see an update available
- Now reconnect internet
- Progress with installing the update
Afterwards, please post a tweet and mention @WindowsPhoneNZ!
