Well I'm so far one of the lucky ones I guess. With 6.1 nearly all the gripes I had with the Pantech Duo are fixed. My internet connectivity is close to being 100% better. Internal storage space seems to be better, somehow there's now more room for onboard programs, instead of having to install them to the storage card which can fail. I'm a happy camper.

GOOD NEWS GUYS!

I FIGURED IT OUT!!

(edited)

Hmm…

 

Well anyways. With your bricked device that says “download ready” attempt to do the update. Then right when the loader says “searching for USB” unplug the Duo and then plug back in right away, U will see it progress then fail. Attempt to boot the phone. Anyway u can by plugging the device in power button etc. Just to get to the at&t screen that will freeze. This is to be expected. Now remove the battery and re-do the whole upload process, you will HAVE TO make it go back into the “download ready” mode as the duo will now be in a weird loop. AND bingo the load should go through with no problem, I just fixed one of ours here


hopes this helps guys! Smiley Happy

I upgraded to the windows 6.1 on the pantech duo, and my daughter doesnt like it. She doesnt like the texting and her favorite alarm sound is gone. Is there a way to back to 6.0, or is there a way to get the alarm sound she once loved.

After I updated my Pantech Duo, it seems that I can't save my contacts to my sim card.
Is there anything I can do to fix this?

Also, if I don't save them as "outlook user" it gives me a message
that says "SIM error. Cannot save the information to the SIM"

Don't worry, it's not needed anymore. It's been integrated into the update itself (named Duo_Update_10032008.exe). Just read the included PDF for instructions on how to use.

would really appreciate some help. Trying to install this and it won't allow me to install the USB drivers needed. In this thread, it was said that Mustang installer was needed to help with this, then it was said that it is not needed. But when I get to the USB driver installation section, I click install...nothing happens. The button doesn't do anything. I try install the drivers manually from the download I was given and it says drivers aren't installed.

 

I am running Vista but other people said in this thread that that's fine. The .pdf file in the download gives instructions for Vista, anyway.

 

So what's up?

My husband and I flashed ours. I took out my sim to make sure the numbers had saved to it and his phone was able to read it. BUT I forgot to put it back into my phone when I flashed. The update went just fine, put in my sim and there were my numbers.

 

I don't know if this was good or not, but worked for me. He put his sim back in, saved all of his numbers to the sim, and lost all fo them when he updated. Take your sim out once you have saved all your contacts to it before you flash.

 

Alos, anyone have any idea why I can receive emails but can't send them? I have verified the server settings are correct. This is really upsetting me because this was happening BEFORE I updated. The verizon users around me work just fine, but little ole me with ATT can't. Grrr.

I just did the reflash on my pantech duo C810 and i did not get mobile 6.1 instead i got the standard mobile 6 and a firmware that is older than what came with the phone. How do I get my phone back to the way it came from the box? And also my windows update program is no longer working, Says Connection to the update server was not available. Verify or data connection and ensure device date and time are correct. Please help me with this.
