Another day another update on Windows 7 update drama, Microsoft today said that they are now delivering the February and March updates to the HTC Surround on AT&T and to customers of Deutsche Telekom in Europe. Also now delivering the March update to Optus customers in Australia and scheduling it for Telstra customers there.

The company said that "We're currently working on two issues that could temporarily prevent some of you from receiving updates:

As some of you know, we recently halted delivery of updates to Samsung Omnia 7s after learning of a technical issue that required a new update software package. The new package is nearly ready, and we're eager to resume updates to this model.

We've also been looking into reports from a small number of Samsung Focus owners on AT&T who haven't received an update notification.

Here's what we know so far:

To accommodate high demand for the Focus last year, two separate sources of flash memory components were required during manufacturing. Focus models are identical in all other ways.

Most Focus owners are receiving our updates. But some customers with handsets containing the alternative memory component aren't. We're now working closely with Samsung and AT&T to test and deliver an update for this group.

The "7392" update

In addition to our ongoing updates, This week we also begin distributing a small new update that adds no new features to your phone. Its sole purpose is to fix nine fraudulent third-party digital certificates. Once installed, you'll see "OS version: 7.0.7392.0" when you tap Settings>About>More Info on your phone.

How you get 7392 depends on your mobile operator and what updates you've installed. Customers with Deutsche Telekom and Optus, for example, will receive 7392 and the March update together. If you've already installed the March update, you'll receive 7392 as a standalone download or bundled with a future update.
