Windows Phone Mango update comes to HTC Arrive courtesy of Sprint
Sprint was nice enough to post directions on their support page that will help customers download and install the Windows Phone Mango update on their HTC Arrive.

The Windows Phone Mango update has been highly anticipated and will surely breathe some new life into the HTC Arrive which is currently the only offering of its kind on Sprint. The support page doesn’t call the update by name but judging by the laundry list of improvements that can only be found in the latest version of Microsoft’s mobile operating system this is most definitely Mango.

After updating your HTC Arrive you can expect to have multitasking, Internet Explorer 9 with support for HTML5, improved live tiles, Bing enhancements and so much more. This update is only available through the Zune Software Client on your computer so head on over to the link and give your HTC Arrive a serving of Mango.

Um I dont know if any of you actually read the support page or not but it says you have to use the Zune software client to install it, you wont find them pushing the update to your phone.

Go to to update it the longer way if it hasn't been pushed to you yet. About to run Mango on my Focus even though it hasn't been technically pushed to me yet.

Couldn't wait any longer. Forced the update. Easy as pie and worked like a charm.

Okay, sorry if I am wrong everyone. But for everyone checking on your phone to see if you received the update, that's not how you do it according to the article. It says you have to go to the Zune client on your COMPUTER to download the update....
