Don't worry about installing any new updates right now. They posted one that caused more problems than it fixed but it is not even on the website for download right now.

In a nutshell, the phone has issues with Bluetooth. Not so much on your end but when you make phone calls using Bluetooth, the people you are talking to on the other line complain about you breaking up all the time and it's a real pain. I also think the available program memory is a major issue as you only have around 22-24MB free when the start the phone up and if you have a bunch of programs running it requires you to close them often.

What do you want to know...

What carrier are you with, what version of the ROM is stock on your phone? If everything works for you then as they say "if it aint broke..." you know the rest!

Enjoy the Mogul\Titan\6800 I like mine!

I have had two 6800s now. The first one, I was really beginning to dislike. I was having to hit the reset button all of the time as it was always locking up. Most of the applications did not work as they should. I had a GPS program that I installed, it was unusable. My first impression was "What a piece of crap!" About two weeks into my experience, a serendipitous twist of fate occurred. I dropped my phone! The phone landed on the power button and broke it. Fortunately, it was broke beyond repair, and I had the insurance. I was provided with a new one at the Sprint store, and THIS IS THE BEST PHONE I HAVE EVER HAD. There must have been something wrong with the first copy I had. This phone has NONE of the issues with locking up. It runs all of the programs I ask it to run. I cannot answer your question about an update, but I can tell you that I use a lot of programs on this thing, and have no issues now.

I may be a fluke, but the new ROM works fine and fixes that damn alarm bug. Howeer, if you dont have any problems so far, then might as well not mess with it.

I never said you couldn't install a lot of programs because you definately can. It's running multiple programs at once that causes problems. If you don't believe, try listening to music through Windows Media Player and surfing the net at the same time. You will probably only have about 5-10% of available program memory.

How can you say that the Touch isn't as good as the Mogul when you've never tried it. As long as you can deal without the keyboard, the Touch is a better phone hands down IMO and I've had both. I thought I would have a hard time with the keyboard on the Touch but it's definately starting to grow on me and it's nice being able to have as many programs as I would like open because the Touch has twice as much program memory. I also haven't had any complaints from other people about my bluetooth ever since I got the Touch.

When I traded in my wife's rumor for a mogul (jealousy of my mogul was the cause) the guy had to go get a different mogul because the first one he was trying to set up was not functioning properly. So yes there is some inconsistencies in how they are distributed with regards to flaws. Just keep exchanging it until you get a good machine.
