Will Mobile Windows Update work? RRS feed

  • Question

  • Windows Mobile has Windows Update as it's big sister. But I looked through many forums and I found, that it never worked. Always saying, that there is no updates avaliable. And even DST update was published separately. So I want to ask: Why Windows Update is still in PDA if it is not working? It's a separate application = less free memory, and useless icon in settings.

  • In fact it does work but but the carriers have yet to inplement it.  In time I expect it will be used.

  • I see no connection between carrier and Microsoft Windows Update. If it works (shows that there is no updates instead of error message), then it must work.

    There are updates. They can distribute new IE and update of Microsoft Office 6.1 and DST update, but they forgot about it.

  • They didn't forget about it the carriers have yet to adopt it.  Microsoft can't distrubute those items as updates because each carrier taylors whatever Microsoft releases for thier network.
