Mango update started today for the HTC HD7 tweets T-Mobile
T-Mobile joined the Mango-age after tweeting that HTC HD7 users should receive today the highly anticipated Windows Phone 7.5 update. With the Mango update, the handset will be able to engage in multitasking while reducing the demand on the battery. The update also integrates Twitter and Facebook with the OS and adds Bing Video.

This tweet from T-Mobile confirms the Mango update for the HTC HD7

This tweet from T-Mobile confirms the Mango update for the HTC HD7

Microsoft says that it will roll out the update gradually to make sure that everything goes as smooth as silk. Because the rollout is being done on a staggered basis, don't freak out if you haven't yet received it as these types of updates can take weeks to complete. You can check to see if your unit has received the Mango update by swiping to the left from your start screen and tapping on settings. Tap on "about" and then "more info" and you will see what version of Windows Phone you are using under the "OS version" heading.

After receiving a notification that you have received the update, you can install it by using a USB cable to connect to a computer. Zune will pop up on the screen. If you do not have Zune installed, you will be prompted to do so. After Zune is installed, it will look for updates and if it finds it, you will be asked to click the "Update Now" button. When everything is done, click on "Finish".

Once you have the Mango update loaded on your HTC HD7, let us in on the new features and your opinion of the software by dropping us a comment in the box below!

Well the update has begin to roll-out ... the unbranded phones are getting Mango as we speak. And there is a way to get the update faster ... so within a week i think everyone will have the pretty message on their screen :) But you should note that the update is rolling out as we speak.

Here in Hungary all wp7 handsets are getting Mango properly (Omnia7, Optimus7, Trophy, Mozart, HD7) since like an hour or so ago, so far as I'm informed.

It's 3am and I still have not received an update message I have T Mobile and a HTC HD7. I have also connected to zune to check for an update manually and nothing. I would rather have it today and something go wrong than be sitting around for the next week or two hoping that today is the day they should let you have it if you check for it manually so the fans will have it. This is worse that sitting around for the cable company. COME ON ALREADY

opez ZUNE go to sync options, tap on the updates line then quick remove LAN cable wait for what happen. Zune will show you update available...get your lan back on line than tap "update". It works i did that and i have the mango on my phone. Important be quick removing the LAN cable!! Remember first tap "updates" than quick be gone from the internet.!! Mango update sucks badly so dont worry if you cant handle the trick:)

This is by far the best update for windows devices.

If you follow the video link to update your hd7 to mango and it doesnt work for you try it a couple of times, it took me around 4 times to get it to work!

It forces zune to look for the update, after a few times of trying it finally says an update is available!

Its Great!!!

All Original Mango!

Can't wait!!
But i have to say, If microsoft wants to expand beyond a 5% market share, they really have to work on being faster to deliver these updates. If it's going to take weeks now, how long will it take to push out an update once they have a 40% market share of smartphones ....

After checking everyday, I reset the HD7 back to factory spec, plugged in and Voila, Update available. It seems though that one should not have to 'factory reset' to get an update.
