Everything works fine, except the incoming calls. So I could use that one for demo - I am going talk about integration with Exchange, Sharepoint, and not about voice calls.

Also, I have another Pocket PC around for use - but not running Windows Mobile 6.

freitasm: Worst thing is... I am presenting next month at the Microsoft Partner Conference, about Windows Mobile 6 and why partner companies should develop mobile capabilities to bring to the market.

And guess what? I don't have a legitimate Windows Mobile 6 device, because... Well, I am not going there, but enough to say that companies still don't believe in help me help you.

Itis going to be hard to convince Microsoft partners to invest in this ecosystem, seeing that in New Zealand we don't have any Windows Mobile 6 device yet.



yeah, where are these developer rebate offers in NZ:

As much as I tried to make the operators understand, they never made plans to offer developers or partners "specials". Dumb, dumb, dumb.

I have to say though, I am getting something from one of the operators. And it's not the red team. And I can't say anything else for the next three weeks.

I had a very interesting meeting with Vodafone while in Auckland for the Tech Ed today (and this week). The Treo 750v is coming very soon, and they are working on arranging the means for secure delivery of the update file.

Also coming is the Windows Mobile 6 update for the VPA V1210 Windows Mobile Smartphone (the ASUS model).

There are other things too, but I am not free to discuss those other tidbits for now - perhaps next month or soon after.

The delays are caused by some last minute roadblocks Microsoft have thrown up. eg collection and validation of device IMEI's, only allowing 1 download per IMEI, reverse logistics issues with reflashing devices, issues with reflashing current stock... the list goes on. It was all ready to go until this hit the fan... Cry

Using your own OS has its advantages...

insider: Just a followup, the reason for version checks is that

a) VF don't want you turning your device into a non-VF device, for obvious reasons
b) It's important to know that the version your upgrading from actually supports being upgraded to the new version. This gets REAL tricky, and it's impossible to check every combination (QA is a PITA), so it's made simple by only supporting known good combinations. For VF 750v, that means if you have something other than the original 750v ROM you will not be able to upgrade your device.

Many people feel "it's my device, i can do what i want", but as soon as they find out they've bricked their device they go back to VF for a replacement "it just stopped working...". Have seen this all too often...

The official version is not far away, and you're gaining nothing by installing the ATT ROM - except the inability to upgrade to the final VF ROM when it ships.


Cheers,


ooh, I'm really scared now...
I can still use it as a  (expensive)  letter-weight.
Do you know what the "soft" in software means ?
The firmware (although called firm) is still software in the end ...
cheers, Enno

I can't decide whether that was just too much coffee or O/D'd on P.

It's stupid replies like that that make me wonder why I bother getting involved in user forums... (sigh)

I'm trying to help and educate you guys, but if you don't want it I'll go spend my time elsewhere instead of here...

Not to worry. I have sorted that issue out with a nice little ban. Educate away
