Eric Hautala over at Windows Phone Blog, posted another update status on devices that are still on hold for the February and/or March updates for Windows Phone 7. Specifically, Microsoft is now scheduling updates for HTC Surround on AT&T, Deutsche Telekom and Optus customers. What this means is carriers mentioned have now finished ‘testing’ the respective update, and Microsoft has received the affirmative on (finally) pushing the update to users via the Zune software.
We’re now scheduling the February and March updates for the HTC Surround on AT&T and for customers of Deutsche Telekom in Europe. We’re also scheduling the March update for Optus customers in Australia.Where’s my phone update? has the latest status.
As Hautala mentions, be sure to check out the ‘Where’s my phone update?‘ page as always to check the progress of your device update.
Any readers out there wait long enough for their update to the HTC Surround (or other carriers), or did you give in and just buy a different Windows Phone 7 device just to receive the update?
