    So either, this was a really mean joke...or she just didn't know what she was talking about...or I suck and can't find it:

    Dear XXX,

    Thank you for contacting Sprint. I will be glad to assist you about the
    Mobile 6.1 update.

    Sprint has launched the Mobile 6.1 update effective April 30, 2008. I
    noticed that the Motorola Q9c handset is activated on your account.
    Therefore, you can update the handset to Windows mobile 6.1.

    For more details, please follow the steps given below:

    - Click on www.sprint.com
    - Click on the support tab
    - Click on view all support
    - type the "Mobile 6.1" under the search tab.

    The next page will display all the information about the Mobile 6.1.

    Thank you again for contacting Sprint. We appreciate your business.

    Sincerely,
    Candice S.
    Sprint

    I'm incredibly doubtful it is out yet. When Sprint released the new Mogul ROM with Rev A, GPS and other new goodies, there was a big announcement on BAW and all the major mobile blogs carried the news. I'm waiting for that.

    Patience, young grasshopper. :)

    Yeah, I saw that. Just tugging on my heartstrings. On a lighter note, I think its pretty sweet that when you search for "windows mobile 6.1 sprint" this thread shows up as the third link :-P

    which Q?

    the original Q will never get the update officially maybe sometime down the line someone will make it work but dont hold your breath

    the Q9's (except the Q9m) can officially update to 6.1 and the Q9m can update unofficially to the pre-released 6.1 rom that was for the verizon Q9c

    I am typing this from my last Motorola and also my last WM phone, then. This is ridiculous. Hopefully it will keep working until the first sprint Android phone comes out.

    IMO you cant really expect them to release an update for an old phone..can ya?

    Thats like asking Windows 2000 to be updated to Vista..it'd be way to much work for something that wouldnt run it well at all.

    Pretty much every phone company is gonna do the same thing..im sure if ya bought a Q9c w/ WM 6.1 right now with any carrier..and they released WM 7 in 2010 that you wouldnt get an upgrade.

    Just my $0.2

    It is a hadware and software issue. it is stupid to think that just because you bought an OS for your computer that you would be automatically updated to the next one. You would purchase the next system.

    We do not have that option with the phones. Everything I read says that the different phone versions are pretty much the same save for the case and screens. Sprint/motorola are just holding out to make newer phones even more attractive. Eff that.

    Android phones will likely be out on both Sprint and Tmo by 2009. All the internet chatter says both Sprint and Tmo will be the first, with HTC being the likely hardware manufacturer. I cant wait.

    it'll probably be a while before android reaches it's potential anyway.

    It all depends on the processor - If it has been changed in a phone series, probably no upgrade. Heck, a phone model is practicably obsolete a month after it hits the streets. HA !!!
