Ah snap! Even provided a 'time' for the release. I TRULY hope it happens. People will NOT like you if it doesn't start rolling out by then! LOL.

There are rumors that this software update will allow the use of EVDO rev. B.

Is there anything to these claims?

Thanks Sprint. I'm glad to see you guys pushing this out today!

Re: 9/27 - HTC Arrive Software Update - Microsoft Mango 7.5

I certainly hope so. It's really just a firmware update to the radio. The Arrive and the EVO share the same chipset, so theoretically they both support Rev. B (which Sprint is rumored to be upgrading to on Oct. 2nd), all it needs is a firmware patch to enable it.

Rev B is supposed be as fast/faster than WiMAX. If that's the case, then I can kiss my EVO goodbye and go back to the Arrive. Also, Rev B supports simultaneous Data/Voice over 3G. This effectively kills the need for WiMAX until LTE is rolled out across the network. Smart move...it's just too bad that Sprint didn't roll Rev B out a couple of years ago.

If we are to get Rev B where on the phone can we tell? It would make sense, Sprint is making us pay that extra price per month for data recently.

Re: 9/27 - HTC Arrive Software Update - Microsoft Mango 7.5

I'm sure Sprint will list which devices will support it. I'm sure the newer ones include the chip. I know the EVO has the chip, but that doesn't mean Sprint will update the firmware to run it.

Funny, I just finished reading this article: http://www.techieinsider.com/news/10576 , and then came here to check things out and what a surprise!  Thanks to Sprint, HTC, and Microsoft for giving us a functional alternative to Android and Apple devices-

I have just given my TP2 to a friend, and will be using my Arrive exclusively!

Re: 9/27 - HTC Arrive Software Update - Microsoft Mango 7.5

I, too, have seen reports that Sprint isn't really realeasing this today - and Sprint says it is.  what's what?  Which is which? What's true?

Should I bring my personal laptop back to work with me this afternoon to upgrade or not?
