    I'm in NYC (Manhattan) could send & receive SMS before the update (did it yesterday for the first time) and can do it now, after the update.

    The update worked for me! I followed the directions and it worked like a charm!

    Good luck to all!
    Oh well. It was my fault since I didn't back up the data on my handheld on either Yahoo or Palm Desktop. I certainly learned my lesson.

    But the data I lost wasn't critical.

    Most importantly, I still have the number of the chick I'm going out with on Saturday, so I guess it's not so bad.

    I'm assuming this wasn't there before because I see people asking all the time where to find a silent ringer, but in my sound preferences, I now have an option to turn the sound off. I can't use the volume buttons on the side to change it to this, but it works if i go to my preferences.

    I only noticed this after the update, but maybe installing Lightwav might have done it.

    Actually, I just noticed a FEW changes to this...I now have an OFF option for volumes...and when you choose one, it actually plays it at that volume so you can hear what that level sounds like...then I noticed that there is a new category for Mail notifications. I'm definitely not getting resets...Overall, it's a GREAT update! I also should point out that I've had many palm devices in the past, and it has never been so easy as now to reinstall all of my stuff to it. When I had a IIIx I used to have to reinstall everything and even then, all my prefs would be gone...this device, I just resync my empty device, and EVERYTHING goes to it, prefs and all!! So the update actually took under 10 minutes for me. I just synced...created a new temp profile and hard resetted my device, installed the update, then deleted the temp profile, and re-hard resetted my device, and then used my old profile to sync again. All said and done it was painless and not time consuming at all!

    I had this same exact problem of looping resets.

    Found that I didn't quite have 4meg of memory remaining, so removed a file to achieve this. Then reran the updater, but still ended up with the same looping resets. Finally, remembering this happening with another PDA, I removed Launcher X from the backup folder, did a hard reset, reran the updater and everything ran correctly. Once I got it to complete, I then reinstalled Launcher X with no problems.

    Hope this helps.

    Now, when I go to the phone info, it says software: Treo600-1.0-SPR. But that is impossible! It never made it through...

    I'm baffled, and somewhat dismayed...

    Indeed, these are by far the easiest to follow. If you have a SD backup solution (I use Backup Man) it will smooth the process quite a bit and make it painless.

    Good luck to all.

    ps: Still no SMS in Miami, FL.

    For those of you posting:

    == It worked fine for me!

    in response to someone else saying the update is broken for them - it doesn't matter at ALL that the update worked fine for you - an update is SUPPOSED to work fine for EVERYONE and if it does not then the update is broken.

    ====

    As an aside - anyone gone into their newly-installed code and seen if the CDMA locking code has been changed/hardened?

    Giggle.

    I tried installing the update this morning (I have a Windows machine at work and a Mac at home.) During the installation the Treo screen asked that I plug in the charger and select OK to continue. I have a USB cradle at work, but the charger is at home. Selecting "OK" only got the same screen request so I selected cancel and got a simple white screen. I sync'd again and everything came back without a problem.

    I'm pretty sure I did not complete the installation, but at least my phone and PDA are working today. Does anybody know why the charger is required for installation? (I don't remember that being part of the instructions I read.)

    > ...Does anybody know why the charger is required for installation?...

    The cynic in me says palmOne is intimately aware of TREO problems caused by non-full batteries and wants to make sure a "full charge"-equivalent is present during the critical part of the software update.

    See NUMEROUS other threads discussing low-charge problems.

    Wow, don't I feel lucky. Didn't back anything up first and the update went through flawlessly.

    Hey I've decided after hearing of the problems I'm not installing the upgrade.

    May want to rethink that.

    I talked to Sprint web support last nite regarding an entirely different issue. When the tech realized I was operating a Treo600 he said they had just received a memo regarding the update.

    Apparently, the UPDATE IS NOT OPTIONAL BUT REQUIRED FOR CONTINUED USE OF THE TREO600

    According to the memo that was circulating, without the update users will begin to experience phone memory loss, some users may start experiencing problems with voice calls and eventually the phone could stop operating altogether.

    In all fairness I was only half listening to the CSR because I had every intention of installing the update and was busy fidgetting with my TIVO. BUT, the bottom line was that the update WAS NOT OPTIONAL.

    I don't have any kind of 3rd party backup system, and I didn't remove anything from my Treo (3rd party hacks), and everything went very very smoothly.

    Took only about 5 minutes to complete and once I re-synced EVERYTHING was right back on my Treo, right down to Favorites and Preferences restored.

    Could not have been easier.

    I failed to mention my charge was 96% prior to the installation. Are you saying it has to be 100% to proceed?

    He is saying he is being cynical with his answer. I say they put this in in case someone is LOW on battery power and the battery fails during the upgrade. They have to cover all the bases, I suppose.

    I'd plug it in anyway because I'm paranoid.

    I tried updating with an 80% battery and I got the message that my charger was required.

    So, unless your battery is at 100% then you will have to have it plugged into your charger.

    If you want to try it without the charger, go ahead, I did and nothing BAD happened but I was not able to proceed until I plugged the charger in.

    That is correct.

    There are threads here on treocentral that (1) note problems with non-full-charge and (2) note problems with what the TREO 600 REPORTS as charge-state.

    Though =I= am cynical, the evidence of what is going on here is too blatant for even the most rosiest-glasses POV.
