    Alright, the phones been out a while and bugs have been identified. I think Palm should give away a free 800w with a guess of the correct release date of a software update.

    So just for fun, when does everyone think a new update will be released, and what do you think it will fix/solve/improve upon?

    I think mid-Sept (12th)

    Fixes = Vibrate issue, missed calls, volume issue
    Solve = system freezes
    Improve Upon = Notification Sequence/Process/Alarm

    I'll play along...I say October 5th. They are going to be busy finding a carrier for the pro

    I didn't realize we had a consensus on the "bugs"...

    for instance, I'm not aware of "system freezes" which are non-third party related, "vibrate issues" (a somewhat vague description) or "notification sequence" (also vague).

    yet you left off the probably the biggest one: standalone GPS function?

    Since carrier testing alone of any ROM update would take 6-8 weeks, I don't think we'd see anything before the end of the year.

    i dunno where OP is getting the notion there will 100% be an update soon. I havent seen any rumors or anything. And not to bash Palm, but they dont have a good track record of quick updates whether they know of the issues or not. the bluetooth patch was in the works before the phone's release and was a patch because they couldnt get it on the device in time so thats a different situation.

    I agree dont count on any updates in the next few months at least before 2009.

    I don't even agree that some of the things needs to be addressed in an patch. We are talking about a phone that for the most parts works better than any other phone on the market. While I think the GPS could be improved, I wouldn't worry about a patch at all.

    So maybe we would be better to start this survey. Treocentral should offer up $100,000,000 to anyone who can guess the date of the first phone that will satisfy every user. If treocentral did that they could gain a lot of visitors and never have to worry about paying it off.

    All I would want in a rom update is to move all the unnecessary software that is installed so I can free up, I am sure tons of ram space. I mean I have about 65mb left, but can you imagine removing all those extra bs programs you dont use. I would probably be at 100mb.

    Yah, but that be up to Sprint? I never use those Sprint TV and GPS anyway and I wish I can remove it.

    When I had the Mogul, just went it was about to install the Sprint .cab, I just do a soft reset. Cannot with Treo.

    At least I know my battery will never rust into place. Even with softreset installed, I have to take the battery out 1 once a week. In all fairness, I love this phone, I love this phone!!!

    It is my first WM device. It is not nearly as stable as the old Palm OS. However, I can live with it becasue of the ability to configure and tinker with it. I just hope they improve many of these known bugs soon to make this phone even better.

    Yea I am also in love with this device, I have had the treo 600, 700wx, ppc6700 and by far this is the best feeling, fastest, and feature rich device i have had. Just waiting for someone get this rom modified to kill these extra bs programs. Wish I knew how.
