UK operators O2, Orange and Vodafone have finally started pushing out the Windows Phone 7 NoDo update which will provide the highly sought after copy and paste feature.
Eric Hautala, general manager of customer experience engineering at Microsoft, urged customers to be patient and warned against using unofficial upgrades.
"I've noticed that some of you are turning to homebrew solutions to update your phone immediately," he wrote in the Windows Phone Blog.
"As an engineer and a gadget lover, I totally understand the impulse to tinker. You want the latest technology and you're tired of waiting. Believe me, I get it.
"Bottom line: unsupported workarounds put you in uncharted territory that may void your phone warranty. We've made a lot of progress in recent weeks, so I urge you to please be patient for just a bit longer and wait for your official update notification to arrive."
Microsoft has not had a successful run with updating its latest mobile platform. The company was forced to apologise after it released a minor Windows Phone update that started bricking some handsets, and the NoDo update has been delayed on a number of occasions.
Microsoft has created a Windows Support Tool for customers who are experiencing problems upgrading.
