I am hoping it does.
However I notice that aside from the firmware leaked from HTC, there hasn't been any kind of beta test program. That worries me. I am worried that we will have a repeat of the last, oh, every single mogul firmware release since the shipping firmware, where there are obvious bugs that make the firmware much less usable. These bugs all somehow make it through the 3 months of 'quality testing' but are all discovered and reported here, complete with reproductions and workarounds (if they exist) within 48hrs. And then we have another 3 months to wait for another buggy firmware.
I am tentatively getting my hopes up; but Sprint- release early to beta testers, release often to beta testers until the bugs are gone, THEN release to the public. Don't worry about revealing confidential info- your competitors probably already know what Sprint is doing becuase they are doing the same thing. Worry about your customers first.
Here's to hoping...
I hope Sprint adds MMS support to this device, if I wanted an expensive phone without basic communication features I would get an iPhone. I have a feeling they started blocking this because they didn't license ArchSoft's MMS for this device. ArchSoft probably found out how freely this unlicensed software was floating around for Sprint's customers. Instead of Sprint paying up they probably just decided to block the software.
Bring back the BAW Bee!
Sprint won't be getting my business until I can find a smart phone that sends picture messages without any silly workarounds.

I spoke with Someone on the 27th of Feb and was told that as of the 29th it will be released to HTC to put on the New Devices and will be released on March 10th so long as there are no more major bugs found... They said that the picturemail issue is more involved to resolve than an overnight solution.James
Add me to the Petition: Stop Blocking MMS on PDA and Smartphone devices.
Im disappointed to learn that Sprint has disabled the PIX MMS feature for the Windows smart phones and learning that you must be required to get the data service package in order to send pictures via email. The Mogul is not a cheap phone and you would expect that this phone would have all the features and capabilities available as any other phone plus the additional Windows feature/services that are made available to you if wish to use or purchase. I also learned after purchasing the Mogul that the sprint radio, sprint tv, GPS services are not available after the sprint representative pitched the best sale ever indicating that all these services are available with the Mogul so after learning that these services are not available I cancelled the data package. But now to learn, I cant send pictures without this service is highly disappointing and makes me a very dissatisfied customer. Iwill definitely do my homework and make a better decision when it comes to the phone, the carrier and the services when this contract comes to an end or if I do not end it sooner. This makes me questioned Sprints' intent and integrity because this is false advertisement! Is this in the best interest of Sprint or the customer?
To be honest, until a couple days ago I couldn't care less about MMS/PitcureMail on my phone. I never really use it, nor have I ever experienced it. But the other day, a friend of mine MMS some pictures to me (he has Verizon service). So I get the "You have Picture Mail" messages in my SMS inbox. Wow... that was a painful experience. Picturemail is so overly complicated compared to how simple it could be with just pure MMS. So for all you MMS/PictureMail crusaders out there, I feel your pain and consider this message a signature in the petition.
