Wow, I cannot believe this. I am all over the internet trying to figure out how in world I update my Duo to WM 6.1 only to come back here and find out it's not even out yet for the Duo! Smiley Mad

If Microsoft has already released the software, what exactly does AT&T need to do to it before they release an update for it? And why exactly does it take so long?



Well, Pantech provided reflashes the last 2 times. I'm thinking that we'll be able to download it from the Pantech site?

ATT is just the service provider.  If you ask your Internet company when the newest version of Windows is going to be released they will pretty much laugh at you.  Same thing for ATT.  They just provide the service to connect to the network and make calls.  If you want to find out when Windows 6.1 will be released to the Duo, you might want to go harrass Pantech.  After all they will be the ones releasing the update if/when it comes out at all.

Um Brettley the cell phone world is different from the internet provider world.  ATT will decide when to release the upgrade as it is full of thier services now most likely it will release on the pantech website however in the past with the 8525 when we att released the upgrade from windows mobile 5.0 to 6.0 it was released on ATT site and HTC America's site.  So they most likely won't laugh at you when you call asking for info on the upgrade they will most likely just say they don't have any info.

Can any AT&T mods confirm that WM6.1 will even come out on the C810? Smiley Tongue At this rate it doesn't even seem like it's going to happen. I just can't believe it's been a month and a half now and yet there's no update for the software on the Pantech site and no word from AT&T.

Better believe it.  Just to give you some historical precedent: WM6 for the Samsung Blackjack was announced in March 2007 but was not officially released until January 2008.  WM6 for the 8525 was also announced in March 2007 but was only officially released in October 2007.  So based on their previous performance, it would be a miracle if AT&T/Pantech released WM6.1 within the next 3-4 months.  I am betting it will be officially released in September...Smiley Mad

Re: Windows Mobile 6.1 on Pantech duo

I also agree with snake92646, but I disagree with his timeframe. I'd say 3 to 4 months AFTER they release whatever the follow up to Duo is (Duo 2?). I'm not optimistic about official carrier rom releases at all.

If it worked like that last time I flashed, then no. The AT&T bloatware is *not* removed. It all gets put back in.

Unfortunately, it may be October before the 6.1 update is released for the Pantech duo.
