Software Version - To Flash or not to Flash


Jan 6, 2006, 9:49 AM
I currently have S/W Version 8720_01.17.03. I really have not have any issues with this phone. Some echo and clicking on my wireless headset...but not too bad.

Should I upgrade the software? What are the advantages? Isn't there a chance that I would loose everything on the phone currently, i.e. ringtones, pix, etc. Or do I go with the 'If it ain't broke...' philosophy?

Thats the only version I've seen of the 815 software. Granted its been 3 weeks since I've check for a new version. Has anyone seen a newer version yet?

Wasn't there was an update. I bought this the day it came out by me (Aug. 3rd I think). I thought I read somewhere a new version was released a little bit ago 🙄

I bought mine in July. I stopped at Verizon last week to ask whether there was a software update and was told no.

I just bought a new e815 for my wife yesterday. My old e815 has 8720_01.17.03.

Her new phone has 8720_01.1E.00 with a date code of 806.

I cannot give you a list of differences and I will not be activating it until this weekend.

Does anyone else know the differences? Should I keep the new one for myself? Did they close the email attachment loophole? 😉

I just took mine in yester day and now have 8720_01.1E00

Seems to access the T-Flash car faster. I really dont see much more of a difference

Does the update disable transflash functionality? In other words, if I update, will I still be able to use the card to transfer pics to my computer and to play mp3s? Also, this update doesn't change the interface in any way, does it? I don't want the new verizon style interface.
