    Here is some updated info!
    • Task Manager now shows CPU usage as a whole, and also lists it by process
    • Internet Explorer offers 6 zoom modes and copy / paste functionality
    • IE also uses a new font, which looks worlds better
    • ActiveSync will now try to automatically configure your Exchange settings once you enter an email address
    • Wi-Fi indicator in the status bar, just as in Windows Mobile Professional

    So eCare finally wrote me back. They first said, I am not sure if we will add it. Have a great day. I wrote back and asked that he forward it on to the appropriate department and received this:

    So make sure you reply to them and ask to have it sent on!

    Extreme Text

    I dont know if I am off topic here , but as said in the topic about the threaded text. I do have the Extreme Text v 1.01, and the problem I have with it is, even when I have set it as the default text, it works until I try to view my emails like in Outlook, Yahoo, etc. And it will not return to being the default after I am done reading, text then comes in as regular. Any way I can go about this? I want it to stay as default, even after I have received my email.
    Thanx in advance

    as you may (or maynot have by the question) this is being addressed in a future release
    go to www.birdsoft.biz for the free update to Extreme Text v1.02..this has a few minor updates and bug fixes
    a major update is planned for january and we hope to address that issue

    I sent an email to Sprint about 6.1 and they said I could get it updated at a sprint store. Has anyone else tried to do that? Here is what they said:
    "Dear ********,

    Thank you for taking the time to contact Sprint. I would be pleased to assist you with your request today, about the software upgrade for your Motorola Q9c.

    I do apologize, I am unable to send the software upgrade to you. I would like to let you know that you can have the software updated by visiting a local Sprint repair center. You can find the location which is easiest for you to visit at the following link:

    http://www.sprintstorelocator.com/

    I would also like to let you know that I can open an e-ticket with your request which would provide you with priority treatment while at the repair center. In order to provide any account information or to open the eticket I would require the following information:

    a. The account holder PCS phone number
    b. The account holder email address of record
    c. The account holder mailing address
    d. The PIN (6 to 10 digit number) or the answer to your security question.

    Should you have any further questions or concerns, please respond back with further information and I will be more than happy to assist you.

    Sprint values your business. Have a great day!

    Original Message Follows:
    ------------------------
    I just bought the Q9c and I love it. I also would love if I could get the new Microsoft 6.1 upgrade for the phone. The only way to upgrade is if Sprint sends it out, when do you expect to send out the new upgrade?

    Thanks"

    Christina didn't understand your question. Make sure you respond to her and ask to have the email forwarded to her supervisor. This is a request for a future software upgrade. Microsoft will not release the upgrade to any phone until Q1 08. Those pics we see are on a phone that hasn't been released to the public!
