On the official Windows Phone Blog, Eric Hautala in his post also cautions users against grabbing leaked and unofficial software as they can disrupt the handsets operation, and says, “During the official Windows Phone 7.5 update process, every Windows Phone will also receive software from the handset manufacturer. This matched and paired firmware has been painstakingly tuned so your phone — and apps — work with all the new features of Windows Phone 7.5. Since your phone requires the proper firmware to function as designed, my advice is simple: steer clear of bootleg updates and homebrew tools.”
So there you have it Windows Phone faithful you should expect the Mango update to begin hitting your device in the next couple of weeks if all goes to plan.
