    Is WM5.0 upgradable to WM 6.x?

    Before I begin trying to do this on my own (Sprint site will not let me upgrade my device; says there are no updates available; never prompts me for a date or anything...?), is my Moto Q9c upgradable? Most people here left 5.x eons ago.

    Just want to make sure before I back up and try the upgrade. Thanks.

    (Oh, and as a side note, how exactly would the upgrade benefit me?)

    WM5 is NOT upgradable to WM6 or WM6.x
    but the Q9c runs WM6 so your phone IS upgradable
    dont worry about the version, look at the top where it says Windows Mobile 6 Standard...that means you have WM6

    rather than PMing and starting a few posts, do a little research, there are endless threads on how to upgrade a Q9c

    When I go to Settings | About, it tells me "Microsoft Windows Mobile Version 5.0". Is it possible that I have a Motorola Q (original) and *not* the 9c?

    Ok, thanks. My bad. I have an original, plain-vanilla Motorola Q. Thus, it is not upgradeable to Windows Mobile 6.
