    I haven't installed it, but the cynic in me wonders whether stopping you from tethering to the Treo is one of the important upgrades?

    Can someone please tell me I'm just being paranoid?

    Thanks. And I agree, Noodle - it doesn't seem worth it.

    I am connecting via USB modem now on Veriizon post-MR. Seems to work fine. In fact, data connection and Blazer actually seem faster.

    Both USB and Bluetooth DUN work just as good, if not better than they did before the MR.

    I almost chucked my Treo 700p with the MR and was going to revert back to my pre-MR 700p. However, after some thought, I've gotten rid of most of the issues I had with the MR.

    First, bluetooth works infinately better than it did before the MR.

    I was experiencing some of the network connectivity issues, but got rid of it by checking the "Connect to the data network whenever the phone is powered on" option under network preferences. My battery life is no worse than it is running chatter with it set to push email. Basically, I get a good 8-10 hrs of heavy use before I need a charge.

    I was having issues with syncing my plaxo contacts, via thunderbird, to treo with the MR installed. I contacted the developer of Palmsync, a hotsync conduit for syncing thunderbird contacts with the treo, and he sent me an update that fixes the problem.

    The only issue I currently have is the unread email icon in the phone app is gone. I miss this icon, but it isn't a deal breaker for me.

    I am now happy with the update and would recommend that everyone install it.

    If I had it to do over again I would not install this. I did and have experienced degrading tether issues until finally I can no longer tether. Verizon could not help and is now a ticket in the Verizon IT area hopefully to be resolved soon.

    Do you pay $20/month to tether?

    I have a hard time understanding the logic. My daughter's LG Chocolate phone uses EV-DO, but I pay $15 for her data. On the Treo it's three times that, supposedly because you *can* tether illegally and they want to make everyone pay.

    It's a rip-off if you ask me. I wouldn't dream of paying an extra $20 just to view the identical email on a computer screen instead of the Treo.

    Downloading porno, okay, but for what I do it makes no sense.

    Where does one find this hack? Is it the same one on vocaro's site or is a different? Because if so, I thought vocaro was only for sprint

    It's legitimate, supported software that sells for $25, not really a hack in the sense that most people think of the word.
