As a Windows Phone developer I enter contest every so often to try to win prizes… Well, I won a Developer Phone to give to my mother from the Apps for Social Good Contest ($15K & Nokia Lumia 920 Dev Phone).
I was moving my mother from iOS to WP, so I gave her my new phone I was so proud of… Of course it wasn’t glitzy for her, so we got her a custom case & blinged (hope this is right) it out, now she feels more classy than ever. But she asked me today, when I saw her that an Update was ready…
So, took her phone and sure enough, an update was ready and I wish I looked more carefully because it was several packages. As I updated her phone which took FOREVER, I went to take my non-Dev phone to update too, why not, right?
Oops! Mine doesn’t have this new update! How can this be? I can only assume it’s because she has the Dev Phone. As both of our devices are synced to Microsoft services, I could wipe the phone and change SIM BUT I won’t, she gets to keep the ‘cool’ phone.
