Microsoft has been fighting the good fight in regards to making sure that all Windows Phones see updates. That path hasn’t been as smooth as people thought it was going to be. AT&T has gone on record to say that they are in fact skipping the 8107 update, even though it brings major bug fixes like fixing the disappearing keyboard bug. Many people have lauded Verizon for not getting any second generation Windows Phone, even after saying it was because Windows Phone didn’t support LTE. Microsoft made investments to move LTE from being an Apollo target to a refreshed Mango one, so now Verizon has no excuse as to why they don’t have any new Windows Phones.
A Verizon PDF has shown up, reporting that the HTC Trophy is about to get software update 2305.13.20402.605 which brings:
- Improved Voice Mail notifications when traveling outside the U.S.
- Enhanced Cellebrite contact transfer performance.
- Improvements in keyboard performance prevent keyboard from disappearing while typing.
- Device is enabled with the Wireless Alerting System.
- Improved device performance when downloading large software update files.
- Original messages will be included when replying or forwarding an email via an Exchange 2003 server.
- Improvements in text messaging performance
All of the above fixes are important and HTC Trophy owners will be glad to know they are getting the latest version of the OS available, prior to Windows Phone 7.5 Refresh Builds (Tango). The irony comes in the fact that Verizon doesn’t seem to care about Windows Phone but will be pushing out the latest update while AT&T, Microsoft premier Windows Phone provider, has publicly said they would be bringing 8107 to any of their current Windows Phones.
