‘Pre-update’ Being Rolled Out

Today sees Microsoft rolling out  a small update for your Windows Phone 7. But, before everyone tries to copy and paste on their device, it should be known that this update is a small one that simply improves the updating process. According to the official Windows Phone Blog, this update will be the first of many, so MS may start to roll out other updates between ‘NoDo’ and ‘Mango’. The update won’t be available to everyone at the same time, so if you know someone who’s managed to get the update, it doesn’t necessarily mean you’ll be able to at that moment. Instructions on how to check for the update and the full blog post can be seen below:

How do I update my phone?

You’ll need to connect your phone to your computer and update it using either the Zune software for your PC or the Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac (depending on which kind of computer you have).

So just install one of these programs, connect your phone to your computer via the USB cable, and then follow the on-screen instructions. I also strongly encourage you to check out our step-by-step guide for updating your phone on the Windows Phone website.

One last important word: If you’ve installed the Zune software or the Windows Phone 7 Connector in the past, you might actually need to update that program first and then use it to update your phone.  If that’s the case, you’ll know. Just follow the on-screen instructions, restart the software, and then connect your phone.
