Good, but...

Where is the DUN update that Cingular has promised? Is there an ETA on that?

DUN in the update is found in "Preferences, Bluetooth" ... Shows "Dial-up Networking" as an Off-On option directly under "Discoverable"

So does that mean that the DUN is available and working? Has anybody got this to work on the Cingular model?

It's about time

6-8 months late for crying out loud... Dunno why the Cingular bunch has to be the last in line...Why oh why?

No, Verizon users are still waiting for their NVFS patch! The Moto Q is really going to steal some thunder from Treo 650 sales...especially now that the official Moto pics have hit the mainstream media and the newswires.

If I am not mistaken the Verizon Treos were released with the NVFS update already in ROM.

The Moto Q looks cool, but it's not going to be on the market until the first quarter of 2006. It's more likely to steal some Treo 700 sales.

Palm Updates...

allesi @ 7/27/2005 10:36:27 AM # Q
I see that Palm is actually improving the smartphones they release, which is actually refreshing when compared to the updates that are normally non-existent for their handheld/PDA hardware. I like this trend, now if they could just get that thing to be a bit more a T2.

Not quite understanding your context, I will respond as such:
Palm has always done at least one update for all of their models. Now, whether it addressed an issue that you might have had is another story; they do make updates. In the case of PDAs, the T5 has had two updates, the LD one, the E2 probably to get one. The T3 had a few updates, as did the T2, T1, TE, and Zire71/72 models. From whence does your context come?

The Zire 72 still has a unresolved security bug that needs patching.

The T1 NEVER got a ROM update despite there being enough room in non-EFIGS units to get most of the major bugfixes in there.

T|C never got any of the crucial OS or bundled app updates that could've given it another 6 months (or more!) or viable shelf life.

The LD's sole update is WORTHLESS for any of the myriad of issues that plague that model---lag, frequent crashes, non-multiple simultaneous button inputs, general system instabilities etc.

The Zire could've used a couple of software updates too but they wanted to put it out to pasture in order to push people to buy the Zire 72.

I'll say it again--Palm needs to institude a serious policy about releasing at least ONE major bugfix and ONE free "software" update (core/bundled ROM apps) per device. Then make upgrades (like from VersaMail 2.7 to 3.1) available to existing customers for a nominal fee.

Palm's ENCOURAGING casual piracy by making people resort to trickery like installing newer versions of Files/VM/WebPro from newer devices just to improve speed/stability on their older units. It'd be like having an old Dell PIII that was unable to run WinXP because of licensing issues with its bundled Win98...even if you were ready to pay for XP and had hardware that was up to spec!

Cingular Update 1.15-CNG

davellis @ 8/15/2005 12:58:31 PM # Q
All went well with the update and the phone still works fine but I can't get the unit to stay on for more than 30 seconds. Even using an application called "AlwaysOn" the unit shuts off in a few seconds. I am not experiencing shut-down during calls. Any known fixes?
