Windows Phone 7 software updates resume for Samsung

Samsung Omnia 7 to receive fixed Phone 7 patch

Microsoft has resumed the rollout of Windows Phone 7 updates to Samsung-branded handsets after reports the software upgrade was bricking devices.

The software patch that was made available to Phone 7 users last month, bringing with it a host of new features including copy and paste possibilities, was reported by a number of users to be transforming the Samsung Omnia 7 into an unusable, bricked device with updates stalling.

Speaking via the company’s official blog, Microsoft’s Michael Stroh announced of the update issues: "During the past week the engineering team has pinpointed and fixed problems that were preventing a small percentage of Windows Phones from installing the February software patch."

Whilst we wouldn’t necessarily refer to the 10 per cent of users believed to have faced issues with the update as small, the swift turn around by Microsoft is encouraging and will no doubt appease the Omnia 7 owners who have faced a prolonged wait for the Phone 7 software upgrade.
