Windows Phone 7.5 for HTC Surround

Do anyone received the Windows Phone 7.5 (mango) update for their HTC Surround phone?

Microsoft officially says is it being "delivered" by AT&T to the phones but I haven't received it yet. No notification on phone neither in Zune phone settings update.

I have been checking for the Mango update as well and there has been no indication it is available yet. Im wondering what's up. 

 

Could someone from AT&T please comment?    Thanks,   Dave

I'm an Android person, and don't know much about WP.  But just browsing around, I found the following article which is a guide on how to force the update.   Its not completely clear to me from the verbage of the article, whether the update has not been officially released yet, or the notification has just not been sent to all Surround owners yet.  Follow the guide at your own risk, or course.
