WP7 Mango Update without Carrier

Is it possible to update to the Mango release without having a carrier?  I have an extra Samsung Focus and was wanting to try the update out before getting my users to upgrade.

Tried the network disconnect a number of times last week and again today to no avail.  Mikal613, going to try to work through the link you suggested.  Will let you know how it works out.  Thanks!
For the net disconnect to work for me, I had to disconnect in the first few seconds after clicking update..<3 secs

I didn't have time yesterday to get through all of the steps listed in the link that was sent.  However, I plugged my phone into my pc this morning and it stated there was an update and is currently updating to the Mango release.  Thanks for all the help!
