Chapter 26: Updating Your Phone > Installing a Windows Phone Update

Installing a Windows Phone Update

As I mentioned at the end of the preceding section, Windows Phone updates are installed using the Zune desktop software. Follow these steps to install an update to your phone:

  1. After plugging in your phone to your computer, you should receive a message regarding the update and asking whether you’d like to start the process. If you don’t see such a message, click settings in the Zune software, then click phone in the upper left. On the list that appears, click update and the Zune software will manually check for updates and let you begin the update process.
  2. The update process begins with an introductory Update Your Phone screen, as shown in Figure 26–6. This screen indicates that, while your phone is being updated, it cannot make or receive calls, so be sure you’re not expecting anything important before you initiate the update process! This screen also gives an estimated completion time, although that depends a bit on how much data must be backed up on your phone during the update. And of course, it’s not a good idea to disconnect your phone after you’ve initiated the update process.

    Figure 26–6. The first step of the update process.
