Microsoft scraps 'Where's my phone update?' site
Microsoft will no longer disclose when people will get Windows Phone updates on its "Where's My Phone Update?" web page

IDG News Service - Microsoft disappointed some Windows Phone users on Friday by saying it would stop providing specifics about who will get software updates and when, and announcing vaguely that a new update is "available to all carriers that request it."

The update fixes a few issues, including one that caused the on-screen keyboard to disappear and another that caused problems with synching Gmail. The update also changes the structure of email thread to include the original message when forwarding or replying to it, for people using Exchange 2003.

In addition to announcing the update, Eric Hautala, general manager of customer experience engineering for Windows Phone, said Microsoft will no longer say when people will get updates based on their country, phone model and carrier.

That's a change from March, when Hautala first introduced the "Where's My Phone Update?" page for Windows Phone users. The page was created in response to customers who said they wanted more information about when they would get updates. At the time, users were eager to get one of the first Windows Phone updates, which added the ability to cut and paste.
