Default Re-released Update May Still Be Causing Problems On Samsung Devices

<div class='os_post_top_link'><a href='http://www.wpcentral.com/wp7-support-samsung-update-issues-again' target='_blank'>http://www.wpcentral.com/wp7-suppor...te-issues-again</a><br /><br /></div><p><em>"Seems us Samsung folk (I'm really beginning to regret leaving HTC) are still experiencing issues with the pre-NoDO update (take 2).

I do not know what is the situation with Samsung devices but..... I was on the phone with T-Mobile and they confirmed that T Mobile has not approved the updaye yet so my HD7 will not receive any update until ..... it will be approved.
Very disappointed; this phone is going on Ebay today and I will buy another one not locked by any carrier.
Another mess...... Thanks MS and Co............

I don't know that anyone on U.S. carriers has received the update. My Focus on AT&T certainly hasn't. The only reason I'm keeping this phone is because I only paid a penny for it and I like WP7. AT&T seems to want to block updates, as my Aria never got updated either when I had it.

I don't get it! Why would carriers be so nasty to their customers and block updates, when they don't cost them a dime? All is done outside networks? They do push Android updates. Maybe they join ranks of MS haters and do everything they can to resist evel MS plans for "World Domination. Right Pinky?

Wait . . . I thought MS was going to push out the updates without the need for carrier approval ? Did MS cave to pressure from them ?

Apparently, yes - although I don't know that anyone has definitive proof of it. What I don't get is why?

Read this -- The truth about Windows Phone 7, software updates, and carriers’ ability to block those updates | Windows Phone Secrets

Paul Thurrott wrote the book "Windows Phone 7 Secrets". He knows the phone better than most people outside of Microsft and better than some inside.

I don't know that MS is responsible here. It looks like Samsung didn't follow the rules when Microsoft specified the hardware base. None of the other manufacturers are having trouble like this. The update is apparently working fine for HTC, Dell, LG, etc.

I wander, why is it Apple dedicated users are the first ones to complain about Microsoft problems?

That is a curiosity, isn't it.
