I have the SPH-i700 with Verizon. Does anyone know, if it can be upgraded to Pocket PC 2003? If so, when will the upgrade be available, and how can I get it?

I talked to the Samsung rep last week. He said the upgrade was "soon". Acted like 2nd quarterish. (running out) He told me the upgrade would be free for 30 days once released. I guess VZW will say when.
He said to contact my account manager at Verizon for specifics.

Samsung and Verizon have been saying this for months and months.
I'll believe it when I see it ........and so should you.

Unfortunatly it looks like us canucks have to wait. Telus is not currently offering the upgrade and you need a verizon number to get it from verizon's website.

Smile Good news for you...
If you would like to do the 2003 OS Upgrade on your SPH-i700 (in Canada), e-mail me and let me know. I will help you out. It's easy and works great.

Very Happy Upgraded my (Canadian) i700 to Pocket PC 2003 software and it works great. Excellent improvement over 2002. Too bad Telus here in Canada can't see the benefits of offering the upgrade to its customers. Crying or Very sad

Wink If you (Canadians) want to know how...reply and I will get in touch with you. It's quite easy, actually!

I am a fellow albertan and have the SPH I700. By upgrading will this provide me with better options? Also will it affect my cell contract in any way? How do I go about upgrading it?
One of my biggest complaints is that I hate the optional keyboard from Samsung for the I700. I have tried the Belkin and Targus Universal keyboards, however neither worked. I am hoping that by upgrading it, either one may work. Any thoughts?

Thanks

Rich

Don't know about keyboard but it makes the webbrowser infinatly better. the 2003 explorer has 128 bit incryption so you can get into secure sites which you can't do on 2002. It's also got a mute function on it which is handy. The media player 9 is cool but keeps having problems reading my SD card so i have to keep restarting media player. That is really my only complaint. As for how it will affect your cell contract i can't say. Don't see how it should. Last i read it i didn't see anything on it about modifying the software...Granted i was too floored after reading about the HUGE Early termination fee. $20/month untill end of contract or $100 which ever is GREATER. I almost fainted. Still not as bad as my GF's power contract *shude...

Hi there...

Would you be so kind as to send me the upgrade information as well, please? I'd love to upgrade my i700 to 2003. Some of the limitations of 2002 are driving me crazy.

Thanks!

I tried to download the 2003 upgrade via the Verizon website - it always requires that I enter in a valid verizon phone number.

Is there any way to get the upgrade for Canadain customers. Telus Mobility has mentioned they don't support this phone model anymore and don't have an upgrade available.

Please Help.

Thanks

I too live in BC and don't care for the limitations of the 2002 os. If anyone finds the upgrade site or any info please let me know.
