Verizon has made a step in the right direction. The Windows Phone 8107 update that AT&T told thier customers that THEY COULD NOT HAVE is being released to all WP Trophy customers with Verizon.
It is odd, but the even weirder thing is when WP7.5 was released late last year, they did the same thing in succession. I think it was 4 updates in a row. The updates *are* cumulative and contain all of the prior fixes, but for some reason, they're applied to the phones one update at a time, rather than just applying the final available version. Might be something Microsoft knows about but needs to fix with an update to the Zune software. It has been almost a year or so since that has been updated.
