    -----------------

    Let me be more precise.

    You have an XV6600.

    The upgrade is not for an XV6600.

    The upgrade is for an XV6600WOC.

    Sigh.
    Please do not spread more misinformation. It hurts, and does not help.

    Verizon is NOT telling this poor sap to upgrade. He voluntarily is trying to upgrade his phone with a different phone's upgrade process.

    Really. Let it go.

    ...and I don't mean post a followup that either says:
    1. Hey why should I let it go
    or
    2. Who are you to tell me to let it go
    or
    3. Ok, I'm letting it go. I just want the last word
    or
    4. We have the right to post pure drivel on forums because that's how we learn
    or
    5. So what if illiteracy is rampant in written-media forums, man, tho and til and west-side man.

    > i got it working and happy

    You got nothing working.

    1. The patch you were trying has NOTHING you didn't have before.
    2. The patch is NOT for your phone and wouldn't install on it.
    3. Even if you did somehow get a way to install it, it would add nothing to your phone.

    In other words, you're either not telling the truth (you didn't get anything working) or you wasted all your time for nothing.

    Feel free to call me an *edit* for trying to save you that "effort".

    It's winners like you that make my day happy

    E, I gotta say, Verizon "did" in fact ask if I had upgraded my xv6600 when I called in to report an issue with my connection one day. I told them the same thing and that the upgrade is not for the 6600 it is for the WOC and that the 6600 with camera comes upgraded already.

    The girl was pretty clueless which in many cases is my experience with the average Verizon tech.

    I remember when a tech at "3" difference verizon stores told me there would not be an upgrade to WM2002 for the Samsung i600 even though it had been out for 2+ weeks. They said it was only for the I700. Sad.

    It's the lack of information that they get that causes the misinformation.

    YMMV of course.

    Then why didn't you think of what it could have been? Let look at it from the eyes of someone with a brain.

    I'd like to see what the link was if you deemed it useful to post here. Is it another upgraded ROM or something? When I try to go to it it says my session expired, only there's no session id in the link (that I've found anyway).

    “E” what do you do for a living?, Please forgive me for not searching on this question first. I just don’t understand why you are so darn hard on new members.
    You are obviously knowledgeable and talented on the PPCs. I’m curious because it seams like you are taking your frustrations out on us new members.
    Just wondering.

    Before all you Jihadists put this poor fellow in an orange jumpsuit... as David Byrne once put it "Well, how did I get here"? You can thank Bill Gates and all the other IT big wigs that got a free pass when it came to putting out defective, not-ready-for-prime-time software/hardware and created a culture of "upgrades". As I type out this reply on my laptop, there is a little icon flashing about some new "critical update" for XP that Microsoft wants me to install. Holy cow, I haven't seen one of those for almost a week... Frankly, I think the 6600 is pretty damn good out-of-the box but I certainly understand how someone would think that an upgrade is necessary by default....

    Re: XV6600 Upgrade ISSUE

    IMHO, out of the box, the 660x does, and has had problems. And part of the reason we're all here. And if anyone had bothered to look on the Verizon page for the XV6600 "with camera", there is a hot link for upgrading the "XV6600" software. And at no point does it mention "with out camera". There is only the "WOC", but I would bet that not everyone knows what that means. So when enzima stated that.

    How would he know that Verizon was steering him wrong.

    So he comes here, and instead of help, he only gets some brainie-ack trying to belittle him.

    Ehud is right, you are trying to upgrade a phone that doesn't need it, with software that wasn't made for it. He just doesn't know how to deal with people.

    Re: Re: XV6600 Upgrade ISSUE

    You know, I've thought about this some, and I guess all I can say is...

    If you don't know what phone you have...
    and you want to patch it for no good reason...
    and you don't want to search the knowledge base, you just want people to answer you,

    I'm not your huckleberry.
