Owners of LG Optimus 7 and Samsung Omnia 7 Smartphones that run the new Windows Phone 7 OS, may be regretting their purchase after Microsoft was forced to set up a help pageusers when an upgrade to the struggling OS went wrong.


Several consumers including those who purchased a HTC model running the Microsoft designed OS have found their new phones rendered unusable with an error code appearing when they try to log in.

The Windows Phone 7 Troubleshooting Guide lists 19 possible error codes that may be encountered, and offers help on how to overcome the issues.
 
Many of those who tried to install the update after its release yesterday were unsuccessful. LG Optimus 7 and Samsung Omnia 7 owners appeared to be the worst hit by the flawed update, which has ‘bricked’ some handsets.

A number of Windows Phone 7 owners have taken to the Windows Phone 7 Forum to vent their frustration and find a fix.

“I have tried rebooting several times and removing the battery and I get the same thing each time,” wrote one disgruntled user.

“My Omnia 7 is now a brick. This is not good enough Microsoft. It’s your first Windows Phone 7 update and you screw it up. Please tell me what to do.”

Microsoft has advised users not to try the update again while the company investigates the problem.

“We would ask that you not attempt the update until your device alerts you of another update opportunity, in approximately three days’ time,” said a forum moderator.

Those who overcome any difficulties may be frustrated when they learn that the update is relatively minor and will not bring features such as copy and paste.

“This isn’t the update you’ve probably been reading about or perhaps waiting for, the one with copy and paste, but that’s coming soon. This update is a relatively small one,” said Michael Stroh, from the Windows Team, in the Windows Phone Blog.
