    The trouble is of a difficult nature but needs multiple effort from different corner, primarily you try to update the phone using june software that should have installed in your computer following the step as deccribed later.

    If you receive an error that says "update Error 80070424", try to update your phone after restarting it and then reconnecting it to your computer by using the USB cable that was included with the phone. Do not use a USB hub.

    If your Windows Phone still does not respond or operate as expected, a restart, reset and restore, or roll back of your Windows Phone 7 might help contact immidietly with your service center.

    Thank you.
