Win Phone 7 Update Is Source of Samsung Snag
Last week Microsoft sent out the first software update for Windows Phone 7 and then promptly yanked it back. The problem? The update froze a number (Microsoft says a small number, and I have no reason to doubt) of Samsung smartphones.
If you are one of the unlucky minority, Microsoft says you should pull out the battery and stick it back in. Heck, I did the same thing last week with my Blackberry when it wouldn't download mail. Like kicking an old TV, it worked like a charm!
Reportedly, the battery fix works for some, not for others.
