    yea I saw this on engadgetmobile earlier. I just upgraded mine last week using that leaked update (or whatever it was). I guess I shoulda been a little more patient lol. either way, my phone has never worked so good since I got the update. I had been master resetting it almost twice a week before I updated but now everything is silky smooth. I was ready to ditch the phone as soon as the Treo 800w dropped on Verizon (if it ever does) but I couldn't love my Q any more now :). anyone that hasn't already updated, do it now.

    I downloaded the software from the site and it fails before it can do anything. It then tells me to powerdown the phone and reconnect it and it will resume. I do that (have to take the battery out to power down) and then it tells me the connected device is not the original. I then rebooted my computer and phone again and I tried all over and it still did the same thing, failed, asked me to power down and reconnect, and then back to the connectd device is not the original.

    This happen with anyone else?

    well obviously the biggest improvement for me is that my phone doesn't keep dying on me and is actual a joy to use for a change. other things like threaded text are nice, as well as an improved browser that includes zoom and cut & paste, as well as the ability to set my own homepage for a change. the new panels homescreen looks great too. I have a blue theme with a blue water drop background from interfacelift.com and it looks great. u can also set multiple alarms now as well as some stuff im probably forgetting.

    its not all perfect though. sometimes it doesn't register that I've read a text message when I've already looked at it and the font is too big to see more than one message at a time in the threaded text, which kind of defeats the purpose of it.

    overall its great though. definitely worth the upgrade if u haven't done it already.

    After playing with 6.1, I have to say that I do like the sliding panels. :laugh2:

    I just wish someone at Motorola or Verizon had other than 20/20 vision, and would design in either larger icons or the ability to increase icon size. :angry:

    from your phone go to start > settings > connections > USB to PC and make sure the "enable advanced network functionality" box is checked
    if you can sync you shouldn't have to worry about a firewall, but it can't hurt to deactivate it

    No go, does it matter if I am a guest or not, in active sync?
