    Charlyee, are you going to flash your BJ with WM6 to see what the fuss is all about? :)

    If someone provides the flash, I will do it to mine. I don't see it available anywhere. Apparently the German site for Samsung will have something soon...but haven't seen it yet. ATT won't release one until probably September or so.

    Lol, no I don't have the files, but I am figuring the person who asked the question and is an expert in flashing phones, will be able to point us in the right direction?

    Right dmapr?

    I just bumped into the discussions on HoFo and Cingular Forums — and they were pointing to this. Whether to trust those success stories or not is up to you to to decide :)

    dmapr, thanks for posting this caution. Those would certainly be deal breakers for me also. I will keep an eye on that thread to see how it developes.

    I am thinking of waiting until Att/Cingular officially release it, so if I run into a problem, I can fall back on my favorite group - Cingular CS :lmao:

    You should be able to fall back on the current ROM, if I'm not mistaken. ;)

    I had an opportunity to play with the new Blackjack yesterday. It has the same great built quality, reception & call clarity of the original.

    The menu navigation seemed to be faster than what I remembered.

    Couple of items that I did not care for:

    1. The scroll wheel is in the center as opposed to the side. Not only was it an awkward location for me it also was too sensitive and jittery. I very much like the scroll wheel on mine and from time to time wish that my Treo had one.

    2. It has a very shiny finish unlike the matt on the original one. In my opinion it looked cheap and was a fingerprint magnet.

    Just my 2 cents. :)

    I really think you should try a Tilt Charlyee. It has a scroll wheel on the side, just like you like it... ;)

    Charlyee: Did you ever flash the WM6 ROM? It's linked in several threads on BJ Users forum. All I really care about is getting the bluetooth to connect back and forth between my car and headset without having to manually change the phone.

    Does WM6 do this? I didn't think it was a differnt BT stack, but apparently the BJ2 does have better BT stack and profiles. I going to call ATT today to see what my upgrade situation is. I bought the BJ about a year ago.....hmmmm.

    wirles, sorry I never flashed the Blackjack. at&t usually gives 50% of the discount when you are 10-12 months into a 2 year contract. I would be curious to see what they tell you.

    I just upgraded to the WM6 I3 Rom. So far so good. I just got my Exchange Server fully synced. I like the HTML email capability and Mobile Office. I'll check out the bluetooth later today. I need a new headset anyway since I lost my H700 in a rental car a month ago.

    The navigation is much faster. When you enter a letter in contacts, it is an immediate response versus the WM5 delay. In Calendar, you can see the entire message from an appointment instead of just the header and date/time. You also have the functionality to reply/forward/propose a new time which isn't in WM5.

    I am loving WM6. It is like having a new phone.

    Good to know. That's how I feel with the WM6 upgrade to my Treo. :D
