Default Re: WP7 updates, info for Overseas unlocked WP7 handsets

Folks,

Looks like we now have confirmation for anyone using an unlocked phone that originated from an overseas carrier that this original OEM carrier controls your updates for WP7 - not the local phone carrier you are using in your own country.

http://tinyurl.com/64pxg7q

Example I have experienced:

Australian Carrier = Telstra (both testers on same carrier in Aus).
Tester 1 (me) = AT&T unlocked Samsung Focus = No update (still blocked 5/3/11)
Tester 2 = Rogers unlocked Samsung Focus = Updated 4/3/11.

So - there you go.

mmmh interesting. I bought my Omnia from France, but it never had a simlock there. So I wonder who is in control of my updates.
