    Yeah, I couldn't provide them with my earlier post because I posted while riding on the bus. I checked the link for the placeholder file that ntwrkwizard provided and it is a 55 mb download. I downloaded it and tried to run it on my Vista 64 bit machine, but it will only run on Vista 32 bit, or WinXP. I will attempt to run it on a 32 bit machine shortly.

    Edit: When I ran it on a 32 bit machine, it appeared to me an update for the Q9m. The software checked my phone, displayed the IMEI number and gave the message "There is no software update currently available for your mobile phone. Please check back for new releases."

    Edit2: Here is the official page that provides the link, the file still is a placeholder. Hopefully we'll have it soon:

    Nope, not a carrier update, just a place holder with Q9M update inside. Oh well, in time I guess.

    Well I meant when they make AT&T available from the drop down list, it will be available for download, and it will have the correct file I'm sure.

    I know what you mean bro, I was just saying this placeholder has Q9M so anyone trying to install it, is a waste of time until it actually updates to the Q9H carrier update. I was actually agreeing with you in a very incoherent and asinine way :(

    :eek:hmy: Of course I know that you know, it would be asinine to think otherwise, I have more faith in everyone based on the level of competency they have shown. :happy: Sad indeedy though... :(

    How about no one posts in this and the other similar threads until the update is actually posted. Everytime I see these posts bumped I get my hopes up.
