Microsoft delays Windows Phone copy/paste update

delayedLikely due to some of the problems it had with its initial update, Microsoft’s French WP blog (via Mobile Burn) has announced that its long-awaited “NoDo” update to Windows Phone 7 will be delayed until the end of March. The update is said to add key functionality like copy and paste abilities to Windows Phone. At the Mobile World Congress last month, CEO Steve Ballmer reiterated that the update would be available during the first two weeks of March. There was no explanation for the delay.

A small percentage of Samsung Windows Phone users reported major problems and bricked phones when Microsoft released its initial update a week or so ago, a patch that updated the updating process itself. To receive the update, users will have to connect their Windows Phone to a PC and connect it to Microsoft’s Zune software.

T-Mobile’s controversial price increases have gotten it in trouble

In May, T-Mobile, the nation’s third-largest carrier, revealed its intention to raise rates on some of its older plans by $2 to $5 per line or up to $20 per account per month. Many of those customers aren’t happy and, according to Phone Arena, are bringing a class action lawsuit against the company.

As we previously noted, the price hikes affect users of legacy Simple Choice, ONE, and Magenta plans. Some users say those increases go against the company’s Price Lock and Un-Contract obligations. The move to see T-Mobile in court comes after thousands of customers filed complaints with the U.S. FCC and FTC.
