    EVDO Beta people: Do you get the Sprint OTA upgrade every time you dial *2?

    It never runs successfully, but I figure it's because of the EVDO Beta rom.

    Just curious if anybody else gets this from *2.

    The EVDO Beta ROM does not work. You will not get EVDO on a Sprint 6600. Sprint cancelled the update. As far as a PRL update, you have to call *2 and asked to be flagged. Then call back and the update will take place. However it will not work since you are on the BETA ROM.

    Everyone needs to read that EVDO and the Sprint 6600/1 is NOT possible. It was at one point when the EVDO network was being built out but access has since been cut off.
    mmmmm.....Sprint Mogul....!

    oops, some how I missed the whole EV-DO part of this. I have not tried to "Brickify" my fone with this, so my 6600 is still loaded with all the factory roms and what not. since it aint broke I dont see a reason to fix it till it is.
