Maybe for some T-Mo USA subscribers, but not me. I am wearing out the Update link in the settings of Zune. Hehe. Come to papa!!

I appreciate you telling me and everyone else how to do the update trick. :P

ha ok as per xda:
1. Start Zune
2. Turn off Data connection and Wifi on the Phone
3. Connect the Phone with the PC (USB)
4. Start the update search in Zune
5. About 3 seconds later, disconnect your PC from the internet (Turn WLAN off).
6. Zune finds NoDo-Update. Press OK.
7. Connect to the internet again and install the update.
retry til it works, and it seems u have to do this with each individual update available, with 4 total

Thanks, brother! That did the trick. I am now updating to Tango. Woohoo! I had to repeat those instructions about 5 times before it finally said an update was available.

Make sure you let Zune complete an update check in full, so that it tells you that there's no update available. Then perform the update/disconnect Internet actions. And keep doing that until the update triggers. It will work.

Took a while to figure out when to unplug the internet cable, especially with the final (8773) update which worked only after I unplugged the cable in one second or so...In any event, thanks very much...so glad I don't have to wait until the end of July to get this sucker..

I did steps 1-4 and let Zune completely search for the update and it said that my software was up to date. Then I did the internet disconnecting process and it is still not giving me an update. I am sure that I am probably doing something wrong here lol. I will keep trying though.

I got it to work. I had to use an ethernet cord.
*UPDATE* So I got 8107 to install successfully. Now I can't get any of the others to install. Zune keeps saying my software is up-to-date. I will have to try this trick some more. The issue is trying to turn of the internet in time.
*UPDATE #2* Ok I got it now lol. Thanks you guys for the trick to get this thing working

Been trying this for allmost half an hour, and was about to give up on it, when suddenly...an update appeared! From then on, all is going smooth, allthough it is taking quite some time. still running the second one now. Thanks bro. I was afraid I'd have to wait yet another month or so.
Still cannot fathom why in the **** we have to pull tricks out of our sleeves to get an update that's supposed to be available normally. Doesn't seem quite right. But WP has so many flaws, why not add another one to the bunch :P
UPDATE: all good. 7.10.8773.98 is now in effect. Though I thought this was supposed to change the homescreen ? set it wider or something ? Or is that gonna be a next update ?

So, anyone here receive it the old-fashioned way?
Nothing here and it's been almost a week. Ok not almost but still, it's been a while.
Haven't received an update message on the phone or by checking through Zune.
I'm in Central Time.
