I just tried to update my HTC HD7 still saying the current software is up to date.
Has anybody actually updated their WP7 yet?
For people that are blaming Samsung: the fact that it happened only on Samsung phones does not mean anything, because Samsung could have done some particular implementation that could be completely correct yet it could trigger a WP7 bug that is not seen in other implementations. So I would wait to know the reason of the problem before blaming Samsung or MS, anyway if there is an update procedure that bricks the phone IMHO it is likely that Microsoft did not design the update procedure correctly!
What did you expect from Microsoft? Things like this have always happened on Windows, so why shouldn't they happen on WP7? Sorry for those that bought a phone that has been bricked, but... you oughta know! :-)

Same old microsoft. go for android on your cell and linux on your pc
why should Microsoft do any better with Windows Phone 7 as it does with its PC software. I've learned my lesson and stay away from MS where I can.

This problem is only happening with samsung phones which shows that samsung phones look good only on specs sheet but when it comes to real life performance THEY FAIL BADLY ... !!!
That is awesome. It sucks for Microsoft, I do want to see this OS do something. It's just funny that the update to help make things better, totally killed peoples phones. The thing is though, at they're owning up too it, and not coming up with some BS. I would be pissed though, WP7 devices are packing some pretty big guns compared to most devices, and then an update comes around that kills them, I donno how I'd react to that. At least they're going to replace them which is a good thing. Still, its pretty funny.
I wonder what will steve say if iOS update hang all the iphones. Hmmm...
they WANT this, just another reason to push c/p major update even further... it's the M$ WAY :))
Microsoft made just one good product: Win. XP. Rest of the software products are... @#%*. Nokia will suffer a lot because of this engage. To bad, because i dont like Androit to, and Maemo had a lot of potential.
