    We started-off the week hearing about the forthcoming software update for the HTC Trophy on Verizon. According to the release notes Verizon had published in advance of the update's distribution, it looked like Trophy owners were about to see their phones get the platform's 8107 update, including the fix for the keyboard issues that had been plaguing the OS. At the time, we weren't quite sure when Verizon would actually flip the switch and start getting the update into the hands of users; it now appears that moment has happened, and the update is now on its way out. Beyond just 8107, this ...

    Verizon's one and only Windows Phone, the HTC Trophy, is set to receive a new update soon as the information related to the last update was removed and replaced with information you can see above and at the source link. The info regarding the new software update, 2305.13.20402.605, doesn't say exactly what build is coming to the device but one bit from the changelog hints towards the latest, 8107 build: improvements in keyboard performance prevent keyboard from disappearing while typing. Other than that, there will be improved Voice Mail notifications when traveling outside the U.S., ...

    HTC couldn't let Nokia win it all with its free turn-by-turn offline navigation solution bundled with Lumia Windows Phones. Some HTC Locations users on Android had the opportunity to download maps but now there's a new version available for Windows Phone users rocking Taiwanese phones. Now the new version of HTC Locations allows you to download maps and use them for offline navigation. The new description reflects just that: "find your way with directions or voice guidance. You can download maps to your phone for offline use, or search and browse online maps when you're connected". If you ...

    The Microsoft Store is having a pretty nice Black Friday sale today through Monday while supplies last. Amoung other good deals on PCs, Xbox bundles, games, and accessories, there's also some free Windows Phones. Of course, that is to say free with a new contract (or upgrade), but still that's pretty good. The free phones available are the new HTC Radar 4G on T-Mobile, the HTC Trophy on Verizon, or the HTC Arrive on Sprint. You don't have to go into a store either since you can just place the order online at the Microsoft Store website. If you or a family member were thinking about a new ...

    There's a weird problem that's been appearing on more and more HTC Windows Phone devices lately. While we've seen some reports of it that date back earlier, a whole new group started noticing its effects after installing the recent 7740 update. On affected phones, owners find that every time they reset their device, it comes back on with a new WiFi MAC address. If randomized MAC addresses don't sound like a big deal to you, then you can go right on not worrying, but if you connect to a WiFi network that registers MAC addresses and uses them as a component of its access system, you probably ...

    Windows Phone Mango is probably the most anticipated platform (refresh) for mobile devices coming out of Redmond. Those lucky (brave) enough already got a taste of Mango using Beta or RTM versions and, while we showed you how to downgrade to NoDo, it appears that Microsoft will make an upgrade path available that doesn't need you to revert. Here's the status of the Mango updates for the U.S. carriers, according to current reports: Sprint will most probably start the roll-out process of Mango for its Arrive Windows Phone. If the information on its own support page is to be believed (and we ...

    We've heard that AT&T might start rolling out its Mango update for Windows Phones it carries starting September 27 and that Verizon too might adhere to the date for its only Redmond-powered phone, the HTC Trophy. The images below were taken by a visitor/customer at an official Verizon store and clearly show the Verizon HTC Trophy running Windows Phone Mango build 7720.68. Whether it is final code or the reps just installed RTM onto the phone is unknown but it's definitely good to see Verizon is taking Windows Phone seriously and promoting the upcoming platform, instead of the officially ...

    Earlier today, we heard that AT&T would start pushing out Mango updates to its customers' Windows phone 7 handsets beginning next Tuesday, September 27. Though it's far from confirmed, there's a chance that Verizon could follow suit and get its update started on the very same day. This tidbit comes courtesy of an online chat log with a Verizon representative. We're well-aware how unreliable such sources can be at times, so treat this rumor with the appropriate level of skepticism. The chat log shows a user in the midst of a Windows Phone 7 discussion with a Verizon rep. The user asks, "do ...

    Microsoft and the carrier partners made three Windows Phone updates up until now: the pre-NoDo, NoDo and the 7392 security update. Unfortunately not everything went as smooth as imagined and we hope both Redmond and the operators have learned from the past experience. Delivering updates in a timely manner is key to maintaining customers happy. Vodafone Australia seems to have understood how the game is played as the carrier announced it already finished testing the Mango update for the HTC Trophy it carries. "Testing for Windows Phone "Mango" firmware update has been completed and ...

    Been waiting patiently for Mango updates to arrive? If you've got an HTC-made Windows Phone 7 device, you may be in for quite the treat, as official Mango releases for many of its models have just been leaked. ROMs are available for the Gold (Pro), Mozart, Spark (Trophy), and Schubert (HD7). The only one missing appears to be the Mondrian (Surround). Most of these ROMs are for the European versions of the handsets, though there is one for the Trophy on Verizon. All are Mango 7720.68, the final version released to manufacturers. If you're going to try your hand at installing one of these ...

    This week we heard about the first RSPL/HSPL project for Windows Phone 7-powered HTC devices, which should open up the gates for future customization and even custom ROMs from the underground developer community. In case you doubted it, here's the first ever second custom Windows Phone 7 ROM. It comes courtesy of the Dark Forces Team (DFT), the ones behind many Windows Phone ports and the HSPL itself. It is reportedly suitable for first wave Windows Phones made by the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC. According to the description, it is suitable "for all HTC operator devices which support by ...

In this video walkthrough we'll show you how to update basically any Windows Phone to the latest build 7712 of Mango, the Beta 2.

    If you've been a Windows Mobile user you definitely remember the old days of flashing custom ROMs. You were able to do that with the help of Hard SPL, a custom bootloader that allowed for flashing of unofficial (custom) ROMs to the phone. Some HTC Windows Phones are supported by a new tool that reportedly brings HSPL to Windows Phone 7. With Microsoft and its new, locked down platform, the question for custom ROMs and deep customization wasasked by almost every Windows Mobile power user. DarkForces Team have released a tool that supports five HTC Windows Phones: Gold (HTC Pro 7, T7575), ...

    If you're into buying a Windows Phone-powered smartphone, Microsoft Store has you covered as it has a great deal on some devices running the Redmond-platform and listed on different carriers. The Verizon Trophy, Sprint Arrive and T-Mobile HD 7, all made by the Taiwanese manufacturer HTC, are being sold for $0.01 of course, all with their respective two-year contracts. The offer is also valid for new lines, upgrades/renewal or add-a-line. Strangely AT&T doesn't have any Windows Phones listed but if you're into either CDMA or T-Mobile this is your chance to grab one Windows Phone for close ...
