Windows Phone 7 update renders some phones unusable

The update itself may not have many features, but it enables future exciting updates including copy paste and faster app loading.

Some of the Windows Phone 7 users, who downloaded the latest update, are facing problems and Microsoft is investigating the matter. The update was first released on February 21 and is expected to help users with future updates such as copy paste and faster apps loading. This update itself did not sound really exciting but the fate of future exciting updates definitely depends on it.

“While it may not sound exciting, it’s still important because it’s paving the way for all future goodie-filled updates to your phone, such as copy and paste or improved marketplace search,” posted Michael Stroh on the Windows Phone blog,

“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.”

Soon, it was reported some of the users found their Windows Phone 7 devices stalled midway during the update process.

Earlier, one app developer had reported that his apps worked fine on the emulators but when he tested apps on real Windows Phone 7, the phone bricked (stopped working).

So there is something in real Windows Phone 7 causing problems which is not there in the emulator. CNET says Samsung Omnia (not all) users are facing more problems due to the update.
