HTC Trophy also getting Mango beginning today
Microsoft has begun rolling the Mango update out to many other devices today such as the HTC Arrive for Sprint and the HTC HD7 for T-Mobile. Their instructions for download are all the same. This is not an over-the-air update that will be pushed directly to your device via the carrier. Verizon will send out a notification, just as T-Mobile and Sprint will be doing, when the Mango update is available for each and every HTC Trophy. As of now the Verizon website has this update listed as “Coming Soon.”
Once the update is available to download, you can access it via the Zune Software Client. After completing the download the handset will need to be connected to the computer using the USB cable in order to finish the installation. The roll-out will take some time for the HTC Trophy, as is the case with all of the other Windows devices getting their turn to try Mango. If you’ve already received your notification that Mango is now available for your HTC Trophy then try it out and tell us what you think!

Sweetness. I'm at work right now, but I'll definitely try to get the update for my HTC Trophy when I get back home tonight. Wasn't ready this morning when I tried it, so I hope it is working by then.

I got a message today on my trophy telling me I have a update but it was just to fix little problems not mango. I hope in the coming days I will get the update that I have been waiting for.

Do the network pull trick when checking for updates. it'll take you to 7.0.7430 then immediately to 7.10.7720.68! Trust me, it works. I did it around 2PM today.

click check for updates, you have to update it 3 times, its a process...

I was only able to get the 7.07430. After that Zune told me I was all up to date. Microsoft must be rolling this out in waves of updates.

good call on the network pull trick, if u dont know how to do it... go to zune>settings>phone>update then while its looking for the update unplug your ethernet cable or usb wireless adapter (if you have one) i just did and mine is updating as i type!

I still cant update to the correct version.
So let me get this straight. I have my Zune software look for updates and then I unplug my ethernet cable while it's looking for it. Now once I unplug it as it's looking do I plug it back in?
If so I tried that and it still didn't work. So I guess I'm not doing it correctly.

1. Plug your phone into your computer and open the Zune software.
2. Check for updates. If none are found, click on another button in Zune, such as "link".
3. Click on "Updates" again. This time, pull out your ethernet cable about a second after it starts looking for an update.
4. Wait until it tells you that an update has been found (expect it to take about 30 seconds or so).
5. Once it tells you an update has been found, plug your ethernet cord back in and proceed with the update.
If this isn't working for you, most likely your timing is off for pulling out the ethernet cord. After clicking Update, give it a second to start searching, but not long enough to tell you that your phone is up to date.

I unplug it, but it stops looking for updates and says "to see for updates. connect a device"

You're not supposed to unplug the device, you are supposed to unplug your internet connection from your computer. If you are using a physical cable to connect your computer to a router (an Ethernet cable), this is what you would unplug. If your computer is connected to the internet via Wi-Fi (such as with a laptop), you would turn off the Wi-Fi on your computer during this step.

Got Mango last night. I am honestly surprised to say that it actually exceeded the already high expectations set by the tech blogosphere. This OS is truly freaking full of FUNCTIONALITY.

got the update by unplugging, but update is stuck on retarting my phone, even though it is restarted!

Tried this method all morning, but to no avail. Either it tells me the phone is up to date (with 7392) or tells me that no connection is available (as I have switched off WLAN). This is a VZW HTC Trophy. I guess I'll just wait for it to get pushed to me.
I even got the e-mail today telling me that an update was available, after getting 7392 yesterday, but no Mango at this point.

I have the same issue as Aero. I plugged my Trophy in, stated an update. The update was only for Certificates and other fixes such as Auto Brightness which now works. It was not mango as mine still shows Windows Phone 7, 7.0.7392.0. I' ve tried the stated steps above with zero luck.

Thanks whoever came up with the internet concept, worked like a charm. I should google my problems rather than call verizon.
23. BradD (unregistered)
Awesome, thanks Penny. That was the oddest way I ever recieved an update for anything, but it worked, so thank you so much!
24. Aero (unregistered)
Well, well. It finally worked today on the 16th or 17th try. Guess it was either a matter of timing with the disconnect or they finally pushed the update to me. :) It is updating to Mango right now.
