Man, Why is Verizon getting an update to the 700WX and not Sprint. Sprint had the phone first. What's with this... I would love to have these updates for my sprint 700wx... What gives?

Great so they put time into making the camera 'click' by default.

Continuous DTMF tones? Hello? Did all the experience suddenly walk out the door? If they'd been making cell phones for longer than a few months they'd know that.

'under certain specific and rare conditions' - Love it. Word smithing at it's best. Perhaps a more accurate and scientific description would be:

"Within the large set of conditions that cause a reset there exists a specific and rare condition which has been fixed."

Again great use of resource... if it was a specific and rare why bother fixing it when there are a multitude of other issues that need addressing.

Blazer still sucks and is at the bottom of the pile for mobile browsers by a long way and has been largely untouched for 4 years! So much so I simply can't be bothered to navigate a normal site anymore with Blazer, making it next to useless as a tool. No wait... it is a tool ;)

I'll simply ask the people next to me who have certain other brands of phone or OS to check something out.

So my Sprint 755 is forgotten? This phone is my favorite even though my dead centro gets an update. HUH???

@ Jan The Man
The Sprint 700w doesn't have the ram required to pull off wm6 (32 megs as opposed to 64 in 700wx)

by afripino | Jun 18, 2008 6:54:30 PM

@ scoot03: Sprint came out with the 700wx, not the 700w and it has 64 MB of ram.

oops, I meant "@ BaDZeD"
