    Is it worth it?

    Hey! im rather interested in purchasing a Motorola Q9m but seeing as how it came out in 2007..... i was wondering if it was really worth the purchase? or has Motorola come out with software updates and such to keep it pretty much fairly new? any input is greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance!

    Don't know what carrier you are looking at but the "m" IS internally exactly the SAME as the "c" and can be updated accordingly. The Q9c IS current so what you'd end up with is essentially a "c" with red trim. :) -Q

    q9m = 6.0
    q9c = 6.1

    you can upgrade a q9m to 6.1 with q9c 6.1 software but only on your own there are tutorials here

    We have Motorola developers/engineers/technicians on this site. Their say-so is pretty good authority, but if you don't trust us, try any other tech site out there...gizmodo and boygeniusreports are 2 that come to mind........

    The Q is still a great phone. It shouldn't matter if it's dead. Almost every new phone dies at some time. There is enough Qs out there to keep it going. The C is still on Sprint's site. It's up to you.

    mostly because today isnt my first day here at EQ:laugh2:
    but sherry is correct...go to wmexperts.com and read there Q articles...go to the homepage of EQ where our admin has written articles which have been posted at wmexperts.com not to mention our moto engineers we have here

    and the fact that why would i lie about that? i want more Q's out there...they are a great phone

    Have y'all ever noticed that people who know nothing tend to challenge those who obviously do ??? :) I'll just never understand that attitude . . .never. :) -Q

    No i believe all of you, obviously because i don't have a Q. I just wanted to know how you knew it, just so i knew it wasn't your guess.

    We don't guess. Has all the whoha help any. I don't think I ever asked anyone advice on a phone before I bought one. It's a personal choice.

    ya its helped, i normally wouldn't either but i've read a ton of horrible reviews for this phone and i just wanted to see if they were true. I think alot are user induced.
