Updated: Mango update now available for the Rogers Samsung Focus

Update: looks like this version is in fact a small bug-squashing fix that is meant to correct some of the outstanding bugs present in the first version of Mango. This is version 7740, whereas the first Mango release was 7720. Sorry for the confusion!

Windows Phone users have been waiting quite a while for the Mango update to roll out, and Samsung Focus users on Rogers are among the last to get it. But patience is a virtue, and the update should bring all the delicious functionality one would expect from a mango, including true multitasking, fast-app switching, improved performance and Twitter integration.

You will need the Zune software on your PC to get it, but once you plug in your device it should be smooth sailing. Let us know what your first impressions are of the update.

Check out the download procedures at Microsoft’s website.

    • andy c

      no it does not :(

      i installed this update on the weekend

  • KM

    Yep… this “news” is 2 months old!

    Since then, they rolled out a Samsung firmware update last week. There should also be an update to build 7740 soon to fix a couple of bugs in Mango.

  • Graham J

    I’m sure Focus owners will find this information useful.

    All five of them.

      You are obviously a iphone/android user who takes pride in being a member of a very large community. Good for you.

    odd, my phone not giving me and update request… im still on 7720

  • TheCyberKnight

    This update fixes the issue with Outlook Server 2003 (where a forwarded message would not properly embed the original message).
    It also addresses a case where the phone tile would not properly display pending voice-mail messages.

    Nothing more (at least publicly disclosed).

  • daniel

    ok so I have Mango, My phone look like the one (samsung) in this post. For multitask switching, I need to hold the arrow for 1 second and all the open program are there. Hope this help someone…

    This story is wrong. Mango for Samsung Focus on Rogers was released awhile ago. This story refers to an update I got last week. Yep, the Exchange fixing bug for quoted text (that I never experienced). WiFi sharing still not enabled.

    • TheCyberKnight

      The WiFi sharing feature must be enabled by the carrier. Mango does support it.

      It is now clear that Rogers just does not seem to be interested in enabling it for its customers. Total lack of consideration here.

      It does not matter how I consume my monthly bandwidth. Whether it is directly from my phone or through sharing, just let me decide.

  • Nino

    If we call rogers, would they be able to enable the data share or is it completely blocked? Has anyone tried to call and ask them?

  • Len

    hey guys, i just contacted microsoft answers and they said this update is mainly for europe.
    The rogers focus is not part of this update…. fyi… unless they are wrong

  • KM

    No 7740 update for my Rogers Focus yet. That Exchange 2003 bug fix is badly needed for my work email. Right now it’s only good for reading emails, not replying.
