What a surprise... It seems in general that Sprint really enjoys keeping consumers in the dark...and even more so enjoys having their customer service representatives provide conflicting or entirely erroneous information to consumers.

I'm wondering something: Honestly, from a technical standpoint and programming standpoint, how hard would it be to update the 6600 to get EVDO? Is this simply a case where we need a new PPC program to tell it how to use the EVDO chipset that's built in? In this case does it simply require someone to see how the 6700 is programmed and retofit the 6600? Or is it way more complicated? What is the realistic possibilities of an upgrade if Sprint drops the ball and doesn't realease one?

YES Sprint is coming out with software for the PPC 6600 so it can do EV-DO...the offical date is yet to be anounced. BUT yes it will have the ability to do it. I see it to happen close to the first of the year if any.

The word I keep hearing is sometime before the end of the first quarter. They were worried about call volume during the holidays and decided to postpone it. Makes sense to me (even though I hate that now i have to wait). If it was released during the peak call volume time period to customer service that happens during the christmass season it would make for very unhappy people waiting for hours to get through to speak with someone. You have to update your phone and then (or before unless they make your change your vision plan to power vision in order to update or maybe just tell you to call in or do the change online when you go to download it) call customer service to change from your vision plan to power vision.
