    this is not a link for 6.1 it is just the same software update that has been there for months it is just what allows the phone to download other minor updates that you will never notice. when you go to the HTC phones on the alltel link it says this ROM includes 6.1 etc...

    So we know how to extract the ROM but do not know how to use it afterwards. I really do not want to flash to verizon, but it looks like I may have to take the plunge.

    Would have loved it if you had Resco Registry and went to HKLM\Software|Motorola\MMS and Exported the MMS file from your Alltel 6.1
    It Will go to your My Document File where you could take it off with Active Sync
    and Post it Would love to see if this would allow us to use MMS on our 6.1

    after an email and a phone call to advanced tech support I was told that alltel will not be releasing the update to WM 6.1 the only way to get it would be to get a new phone, and was told to go to the store and get them to switch out my phone for a new one, well needless to say this did not go well I was told they would not do that but I could do an insurance claim and pay the 95 dollars and get maybe a new phone. So I called tech support again to complain and was told that they would not send me a new phone either.

    When I asked the customer service rep at the store about the commnet/atlantic tele network buyout in my area, they did not want to talk about it and they moved quickly on to another subject.

    Really getting fed up with divested alltel wish I could get out of my contracts and switch to vzw. i really wish my phone would crash so I could get a warranty replacement.

    Start flashing it and unplug it 1/2 way thought.. It will be toast.
    Just tell them you don't know what happened.

    Or you can go up there and say your screen keeps blacking out and freezing and they'll switch it out. That's what I do when my screen gets all scratched up and I have gotten 3.. :)

    well i got 6.1 today through xbm, it took many calls to tech support and finally had to go to a noncorporate store with my problems, and they made it happen for me.
