The Windows Phone team has updated their blog with a reminder to users running a version of Windows Phone below v7.5 (aka Mango) to update their device with the latest version in order to continue to have access to the Marketplace on both the web and on the device.
The move is being made to continue making improvements to the Marketplace and Microsoft needs to move users to the latest update to do so.
To see which Windows Phone operating system (OS) version is currently installed on your phone, do the following:
- On Start, flick left to the App list.
- Tap Settings > About > More info.
If you have never upgraded you phone’s software, you will need to connect the device to your PC and run the Zune PC software and follow the onscreen instructions to begin the process.
