PSA: Windows Phone 7 Update Causing Issues for Samsung(Updated)

Samsung Omnia 7

You always know when a new update for anything comes out that there is going to be a issue for some poor group of people out there. Well if you have Windows Phone 7 and a Samsung handset then I’m sorry to tell you that it might be you. Over Twitter and Facebook people are complaining that the new update for the Windows Phone 7 is bricking some of the phones. It has been reported that the update is not completing correctly and that some users are getting a error message during the installation.

It is being reported as well that Microsoft are reporting a fix for the handsets having issues, that takes me back to the good old days of technology, simply pull out the battery and put it back in(Let’s see you do that iPhone). Failing that just perform a hard reset on the device and that should fix your issue. Samsung and Microsoft are recommending that you don’t attempt to update again until your phone reminds you, which is estimated to be around 2 days.

UPDATE: Microsoft have stopped Samsung models recieving the update at the moment, giving them time to fix the issues before releasing the update. Again this only for the Samsung models at the moment.
