    I got a message this morning about an important update from Palm and Alltel for my 700p. I was just wondering if anyone has installed these, especially tried to install the 755p update to the 700p. Would this process be similar to the updates folks are doing on there 700p to use the 755p firmware? The firmware says it's a radio patch, but it looks like a whole rom update. Ant thoughts?

    Yes there is an update available for the Alltel 700p and 755p. I installed it(700p) this morning. I guess what I was really wanting to know is can I install the 755p update instead of the 700p update on my 700p to achieve similar results others have had with speed and stability? I have never had a stability issue with this phone, but speed is another thing all together.
    Thanks

    I just finished updating my 700p. Took less than 30 minutes. Most of the update seemed to be updating the modem. I hope this wasn't some sneaky way to make pdaNet not work! I have pdaNet on my 755p but not on my 700p so no way to test (no data plan on the 700p).

    I think I am going to wait to update the 755p until I see what this did to the 700p, and until I see a few more reviews on the 755p thread.

    BTW there are seperate updates for the 700p and the 755p. The instructions for the 755p say it will only update a 755p.

    Yeah, but people with other carriers have been using the 755p update on their 700p. I'm sure the instructions for all Palm updates say something similar to this. I, like a lot of people, used the Centro Versamail update on my 700p as well. Works great. Like I said I already installed the 700p update on my 700p. Just wondering about the 755p update being applied to the 700p as with other carriers.

    Correction: people have been using a modified version of the Sprint 755 update on the 700p. The verizon 755 update won't install on the 700p.

    The reason people are using the Sprint 755 update is not because the Verizon one won't install it is because it does not exist.

    has anyone been brave enough to try the Alltel 755p update on their 700p? I wish I had spare, screwed up unit to try it out, like a bad ESN or something. Kocoman, you have any thoughts on this?
