Pocketnow has reported [HERE] that because there are already some posts on the Microsoft Knowledge Base for Windows Phone 7, we should expect the update to become available at any time. Pocketnow is usually accurate in their scoops and news, let’s wait and see how accurate they are on this one.
The report goes on to say that the article is called “Troubleshooting problems during software update for Windows Phone 7”, and it simply walks the users through the WP7 update process and helps troubleshoot in case of any potential problems that may happen during the process. The article also indicates how to “undo” the update if users were not to like the update. From the content in the article one can tell that the update will only happen when the phone is connected to the PC and syncing through the Zune software, however it will also require that you have a USB wired connection between the phone and the computer to make sure that the connection will not be interrupted by any external factors. You can currently sync via WiFi if your computer is connected and running to the same network you are connected with WiFi and your phone goes into screensaver mode.
Additionally, you need to make sure that your phone is fully charged before updating to make sure you don’t get interrupted in your software update.
I’m keeping mine fully charged at all times so I can update as soon as it becomes available!
