    I've been through installing and configuring and reinstalling and reconfiguring so many times now.. Every time I've talked to VZW they've had me do a Master Reset.. what's one more time to me?

    Upgrade, here I come!! :laugh:

    I've notice on qusers there is an update that someone is currently installing. Does anyone know anymore about this?

    I posted this elsewhere, but I thought I'd repost here:

    well sadly it is not yet being released to the public and does not contain all the updated items that were mentioned earlier. i have upgraded to it and the frames problem was what i was hoping it fixed but it did not.

    i noticed a few changes but nothing worth upgrading and re-installing all your 3rd party software for. i would wait until the final public release.

    it only states that it fixes :

    - expand push email capabilities
    - let you use the phone as a modem
    - fixing hearing aid capabilities

    but i noticed :

    1. the phone seems to be a little quicker getting around
    2. i really like the new start menu with more icons per page
    3. i have been messing around with the modem settings and it seems that i havent been able to lock up the phone regardless of whether i disconnect (deactivate) first or not

    Huh? Can you elaborate here? Other posters (two above you in this thread) contradict what you state here. Thanks.

    I'm a little confused by this - my frames work beautifully. Granted I've only tried my work website which uses frames extensively, but it works as expected. The only "drawback" is that a 320x240 screen can only show so much, and when you try to show THREE-FOUR things in that little space, it gets a bit cramped... but at least its still functional!

    Interesting.. After performing the Update, I am no longer able to get into the "Sounds" settings (Start -> Settings -> Sounds), and then the Q gets extremely sluggish.

    I just did a Master Reset to make sure it wasn't a piece of software or one of the hacks causing the problem, and still no dice.

    Anyone else experiencing this?

    EDIT:

    For some reason it has to do with all the mp3s on my memory card. removing the card and then going into "sounds" made them accessible again.

    I found the answer to my problem in this thread: http://www.everythingq.com/forum/motorola-q/freezing-up-when-trying-access-sounds-826.html

    Just tried and it worked as slowly as ever, it was never speedy for me, but no change (for better or worse) than before the update... However, I did notice there wasn't any sound playing after leaving the menu (as before).

    It is a combined 53 MB for the update -- are you unable to download from the website?
