    There's a video from WMExperts on Windows Mobile 6.1.



    It has threaded text, cut and paste, and a better homescreen among other things. According to the Windows mobile junkies on that site the features work better when Microsoft or the phone manufacturers integrate them into the phone.

    That said, I think Verizon will get this update eventually on its 6.0 devices. It's just that they take their own sweet time testing, approving, and castrating stuff. So, they like to hold back on the announcements.

    in some -maybe most- cases i agree, but if i look at some basic default build-in stuff like the PIM, i can't agree with that theory...

    True, I just thought of that. Verizon doesn't even have alot of devices because they never passed their rigorous testing. :/

    I agree with you here. I could never go back to the default calendar after using Papyrus. :laugh2:

    The castrating part I think is the key. With the Q9c's GPS being disabled so they can sell VZNavigator. I bet the raw update would activate it, and VZW is trying to figure out how to break it again. :angry:

    extreme text is waaaack

    Extreme text is annoying, i dont like that it has to load and then asks if I want Outlook or Extreme text... poor interface. Also I can't figure out how to uninstall extreme text. It doesnt show up in my 'remove programs' list, there doesnt seem to be a 'uninstall' option in the extreme text menus; and when i tried to simply delete all the extreme text files i couldn't read any texts at all as it simply said 'extreme text app not found' so i had to reinstall from scratch.

    I wanted the built in software for that reason, so that I don't have to worry about running into problems like that.

    Also, it works very well from what I have seen...which is why I want the 6.1 update!!! lol

    According to a thread on Howardforums, the update IS out, however, Motorola Update servers have been offline. Catch 22. Anyone get Motorola Updater to at least say that there's no update available??

    "No available updates at this time" Are we sure they are providing the upgade via the updater?
