Updates, How is it done?

This is my first WinMo phone and I am wondering how do official updates work. Are they released by Microsoft, HTC, Verizon? And how would I know about them. Are the updates in the form of service packs or a complete reinstall of the OS? How often are they released, and how soon should we expect one for the Imagio?

Re: Updates, How is it done?

It varies phone to phone, but they are generally released by the carrier after testing internally. It could be a few months or longer before seeing any update. It really depends on whether there are any serious issues with the ROM or not as to how fast they generally put out a new one.

Re: Updates, How is it done?

Typically it would be the Vendor that releases updates, So HTC for the Imagio. Microsoft will release OS updates but then they give it to the vendors to do their customizations. Example, I had a Samsung I-760 before my Imagio. It came stock with winmo 6, but on samsungs site they have a 6.1 update. Verizon may advertise it under the phone support section but they will link you to the Vendor page.

Hope this helps.
