    I currently have 1.21 on my unlocked GSM Treo 650. Everything works OK, but the long delay for network search is rather annoying.
    Is it worth it to upgrade to 1.23, or am I just introducing new issues?
    BTW, I do not use Chatter or Goodlink.

    I'm currently on 1.23, and I'm going to revert to 1.21 tonight. I have experienced several spontaneous resets with 1.23, all apparently related to some form of problem with Saved Preferences. Since that file is akin to the Windows registry, I want to limit any problems in that area.

    Why must one have to vote before they can see the results of the poll? After all there are people who have not done the update and therefore do not have an opinion regarding this yet, but they would like to simply view the poll to decide whether they ought to upgrade or not.

    Thanks. I guess I ought to have looked more carefully.

    I voted to do the upgrade just because I have experienced very little change in behavior from 1.21 to 1.23 except that the network search is much faster for me on 1.23. I am getting a spurious reset about every three days which seems to be related to DbCache getting large. With 1.21 I didn't have a reset for the five days I had it installed.

    For me the network search is important because I live in a fringe coverage area and can switch between networks just by going from one side of my house to the other - or at least it tries to switch. Most annoying...

    20% margin on no upgrading. It surprises me, but looks to be good advice.

    I just got my unlocked 650. I can't figure out what software I have--the only number I see is 1.06. Is it possible I am that far behind current updates or am I comparing apples and oranges? Where do I get the software to download?
