Happy 2012 everyone! Did you get the WP7 devices you always wanted? If you are in Canada. of course not! But in case you are one for getting unlocked devices off eBay or Craigslist or something like that, make sure you visit my "How-To" page for help with your new WP7.
What isn't included in the how-to page is make sure your new WP7 device is up to date.
Go to Settings->About and find that all important firmware version number. It should be 7720 or 7740. If it doesn't, make sure you install Zune Desktop (www.zune.net) on your PC or download the free Windows Phone Connector off the Mac App store to get your phone updated to the latest and greatest firmware available for your phone.
If you are sick and tired of waiting for new devices to show up, Telus and Microsoft have teamed up for a special holiday offer on the LG Optimus 7
Want unlimited music for a low low fee of $9.99/month, subscribe to the excellent zune music pass and you'd be downloading/streaming music in no time (there's also a 14 trial).
Happy WP7ing and look forward to (hopefully) more WP7 devices coming to the Great White North!
