Following the trouble Microsoft caused for some customers with its first Windows Phone 7 update, the company has taken down its Samsung Omnia 7 and Focus update. In a statement, Microsoft said: "We have identified a technical issue with the Windows Phone update process that impacts a small number of phones. "We have temporarily taken down the latest software update for Samsung phones in order to correct the issue and as soon as possible will redistribute the update." However, if you now think all Windows Phone 7 devices or all Samsung Omnia 7 devices are the same - you are wrong. On its German Windows Phone Facebook page, Microsoft said that T-Mobile's Omnia 7 isn't affected.

Nevertheless, it's yet not clear if T-Mobile's Samsung Omnia 7 isn't affected because of a different code it might use or because T-Mobile Germany has decided to skip the update. According to information on Microsoft's Windows Phone 7 support forum, "Some Mobile Operators have the right to skip one update if they wish. However, they can't skip the next one, which would be an accumulative update and would include the previous one."
But it was also made clear by Microsoft that carriers are allowed to skip one update in the row only which means the next one - in this case next month's NoDo update - has to be rolled-out.
