Installing an update

Installing an update

When you see the notification about an available software update, you can do the update right away. Or you can dismiss the notification and update some other time. Your phone will remind you again in a few days.
Important: Have you prepared your phone and computer for the update? If you haven't, please see Preparing for a software update on what you should check and prepare.
  1. Connect your phone to your computer.
  2. Open the Zune software (or Windows Phone 7 Connector for Mac), if it doesn't open automatically.
  3. Click Update Now (or Install Updates).
  4. Make sure you keep your phone connected to your computer until you see a notification that the update is complete.

Correcting the date and time

If you're having trouble installing a software update, your phone may not have been set with the correct date and time. In most cases, the date and time is set automatically. But if it's not, you can set it manually.
  1. Disconnect your phone from your computer.
  2. On the Start screen, tap .
  3. Tap Settings > date + time.
  4. Turn off Set automatically.
  5. Set the correct time zone, date, and time.
  6. Reconnect your phone to your computer, and then try installing the update again.
