ATT sucks at pushing out updates and didn't even push out the basic disappearing keyboard fix. I finally gave in and did the update myself through the cab installer method. Now my unlocked HTC Titan is running Tango and everything works except voice notes since this is a general update and not an OEM specific one. And somehow, even visual voicemail is working!http://pocketnow.com/2012/06/27/windows-phone-tango-7-10-8773-98-cab-downloads-now-available/

Just completed the 8773.98 update on my AT&T Samsung Focus S successfully!!! One step which was omitted is you have to re-connect the ethernet cable prior to actually upgrading. I know that is common sense, but I eventually figured it out. I downloaded a total of five updates, 7740, 8107, 8112, 8773, and Samsung update for Windows Phone. It took me about 45 minutes, but my computer only has a 1.8 processor and a snail DSL connection. I am looking forward to trying out all these updates and see how they improve the excellent features of my 1 cent Samsung Focus S!
