Unlocked AT&T Samsung Focus v1.3 Gets Windows Phone 7.5 Mango Update

 

Windows Phone Mango Logo Official

Good news folks, as promised by AT&T Windows Phone 7.5 Mango update is here. At least for me on my unlocked AT&T Samsung Focus v1.3. That being said Samsung Focus v1.4 users will have to wait till mid October for an official update. All others can wait as the global roll out has begun or read this post on wmpoweruser to force update right now.

Update: Mango features hundreds of new features and with this I would say Microsoft is bang on target. Next year we will see many new Nokia Windows Phone devices taking this promising OS way further.

  1. Hi, sorry if my question will sound annoying, I’m a new user of Windows 7 phone, and was an iPhone 3g user previously. Based on my iPhone experience, I cannot update my jailbreak phone, because if I did, I won’t be able to use it anymore. Is it the same for a Windows 7 phone? I’m using an unlocked (or jailbreak) Samsung Focus v.1.3. I want to update real bad, but I’m scared that I might not be able to use it anymore, I love this phone, more than my iPhone.

    Thanks so much for your time,and I hope you could help me or advice me on what I should do. Thanks again.

    • Hi,
      You don’t have to worry as it is a factory unlocked AT&T phone. Go ahead and update to Windows Phone 7.5 (Mango) and you will get all future updates too.

      • Because when I bought this phone, I wasn’t really sure if it was just a jailbreak by somebody or anybody, or it’s a factory unlocked AT&T phone, as you said (Because I bought it in a Chinese online shopping website). Is it still safe to do the update? Sorry for asking all these questions!

        • Chances are high that it is an official AT&T factory unlocked phone. Same is the case here. I bought this phone via eBay from a seller in the US. So nothing wrong in updating IMO.

          • Hi! Thanks for the advice. I just updated, and my phone was OK. There’s one weird thing, though. Before, I can use the voice command to send a text message even without wifi connection, but now, I always require wifi connection, just so I could send a text message through voice command. It always says, “Sorry couldn’t connect.” I wonder what went wrong?
