Microsoft has released a new update for the Windows Phone operating system to fix several issues relating to the Exchange and voice-mail features. On top of that, the update also bumps the build number from 7720 to 7740.

This new update takes the operating system build number from 7720 to 7.10.7740. The update provides two fixes for two important issues. First, a bug with Microsoft Exchange Server 2003. The fix for this ensures that the original message is included when you reply to or forward an email. Secondly, there is an issue with the proper delivery of voicemail notifications, which is fixed in the update.

In order to install this update, you will need to connect your Windows Phone handset to a computer to download and install this update. “Despite the minor nature of the update, it’s still treated as a full system update, including taking a complete back-up of the phone,” neowin mentions.

“This isn’t the first time that Microsoft has issued an ‘extra’ update; it previously released update ‘7392’ shortly after the NoDo update (7390) was released, as a patch to address an issue with fake security certificates,” neowin also indicates.

This update, apparently does not fix the issue of a “disappearing keyboard” that many Windows Phone Mango users were reporting. Perhaps Microsoft has yet to find a solution to that bug.
