Should I upgrade to the new software?

Is there anyone who has upgraded from the older software version (plays mp3s) to the new one with VCast? What are some of the negative and positive aspects about the upgrade? Does anything else change besides the music player? Better text messaging (like adding words to the lacking T9 dictionary)? I'm really curious to know. I assume Verizon doesn't charge for the upgrade...not taking into consideration the gas it takes to get to one of their stores of course! Any input is great. Thanks!

i dont recommend it. i had the old software and they gave me a new phone n upgraded without telling me. besides the no mp3 thing, u also cant make ringtones, or at least i havent been able to find a way yet (other than mobile17 and emailing cuz they sound like crap). the pictures have also been different. with the old software i was able to take whatever picture from my comp that i wanted to and put it on my tflash card and have it work with everything on the phone, not the case with the new software.

no advantages that ive seen. it hasnt learned new words with t9 or anything.

as far as i know there is still no t9 learning.
another thing i forgot to mention is the wheel on the outside of the phone has been rendered useless as u cant cycle through ur songs with it anymore.

Just to let you guys know there are two versions of the Yk25 software. One that allows mp3s and one for the MOD (Vcast) software. I flashed a couple the other day to allow mp3s
