    Would be nice, but there's not much track record for it.

    Probably just bug fixes, but AKU2 would be nice. :)

    good question, i was wondering about that myself.

    i'm probably mistaken, but my guess is you'd perform the same steps as the inital Q setup.. what was it.. *228 option 1 .. ?

    That's how it's been done with the i600, XV6600, i730 and Treo 700W in the past.

    You can go to the link on 8/10 to get a free SW upgrade on your own and it will fix your issue.

    I think he's saying to go try it on 8/10 (tomorrow, Aug 10).. ?

    I'm curious if anyone knows if the update will screw with any currently customized settings on the Q..

    I think the working link is Here

    However it didn't work for me. Thought my Q was a Cingular E315.

    Thanks for the link!

    Well, I guess this answers my question:

    It would be nice to see what the actual fixes/updates entail.

    It will be great to have frames supported on the browser, i've had some problems with them and now i don't have to buy Opera! Also excited about using it as a modem and for any browser enhancements!

    Good news!

    Yah, so apparently the updater doesn't work just yet. Guess no updates are currently available.
