I have a HTC Trophy sourced from Vodafone NZ but I've still not been offered the Mango update (current phone software version 7.0 (7392). I wiped the device in case it was regional settings I changed as a work around to get the map search working, but still no update offered. Tried from Zune.

Nothing here either on my HTC Trophy. From what I've read around most people got Windows Phone Mango either because they have a developer account, or used the "unplug the net" trick (I did it on my LG Optimus).

I've decided to not apply the trick on the HTC Trophy to see how long will it take. So far, nothing - and trying every day.

Microsoft says it's a staggered release. On the other hand they say last week the release has ramp up in terms of number of updates offered.

I think Microsoft has again shot itself in the foot. They had three updates before this to find out how things work. And yes, I know they say they make it slow to follow up on problems.

I got Mango on my Trophy from Vodafone the day after its official release. No trickery to get it to work, just plugged it into zune and it told me there was an update available.

After a few updates, one would think Microsoft would just switch something to "full throttle for [model] [operator]" seeing no problems reported, surely?

I used the Dark Forces team ROM weeks ago, built off the official leaked Spark (Trophy) rom. I'll probably stick to the route of custom ROMs, sure I loose everything everytime I upgrade the ROM, but I'll get tethering faster

I got the Mango update on my Trophy soon after it was released, although its a dev unlocked device running the Mango beta...was stoked that I didn't have to roll back to NoDo to get the RTM of Mango, well done MS.

Microsoft are doing the update randomly by activated UDID. You can have two identical phones linked to the same Zune software and get the update for one but not the other.
