Discussion in 'Microsoft Windows Mobile Phones' started by charlyee, Dec 6, 2006.
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.
Do you have the file(s)? Share the wealth, woman!!! :browani:
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?
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
And any brave soul will probably want to keep their eyes on this thread.
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...
I forgot to mention that the keys are better spaced than the original.
Thanks Jay, the Tilt is a very nuce phone I agree, but I luv my Treo.
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.
