If you are tired of having your PPC-6700 set up just how you like it.  With your settings perfectly configured and all the applications loaded to make it an almost perfect replacement for your laptop, just simply run the update from Sprint's website.  It will fry your phone to paperweight status.

As an added bonus, you'll get to visit the friendly Sprint store and get to listen to their gorilla math logic for getting insurance.  Apparently, it makes fiscal sense to pay $7/month when a phone will have problems on average once a year.  Since getting a new phone cost me $35 and I've only had a problem like this once in the last 9 years, I see their point.

If that wasn't enough, you might get to carry around a beauty like this around for three to five business days:



All in all, they were really nice at the Sprint store and they are getting me a new phone.  It just sucks to have to pay $35 and have to reconfigure my phone when it wasn't my fault.  I've heard much worse horror stories from people with other providers.  Sprint has the best phones with the best features and the best network.  And they are planning on rolling out WiMax in 4Q of this year.

For 3-5 business days, you will NOT get my emails 'immediately'.

I didn't have an issue with this update. Interesting. My phone did die back at Tulsa TechFest though. I had to go buy a TracPhone though, because they refused to give me a "loaner!"
