If you followed the live chat today which Sprint held, this was the answer regarding WinMobile 6.5 upgrades.
They're testing Windows Mobile 6.5 updates for the HTC Touch Pro2 and other Windows phones; "plan for early 2010."
If you are anxious for an update you can get them from xdadevelopers, ppcgeeks and pdaphonehome.com I'm running 6.5 build 23081 (much newer than the build released on most 6.5 phones) on my HTC Touch and it doesn't have any sprint crapware or restrictions on it. It might be a teensy bit more complex to upgrade depending on whose self made firmware you chose but I can tell you this, most popular updates are far better tested and reliable than the outdated ones you can get from sprint. On top of that I have one of the newest HTC Touchflo menus which has improved significantly beyond the ones released for most firmware updates.
Just make sure you are in the right section for your particular device. Even though my phone is much older than yours, I've been running various 6.5 builds since March or so. Also remember all firmware updates will completely erase EVERYTHING on your phone - any apps you've added, any pictures, text messages etc.
Frankly I don't recommend the official Sprint firmware updates as they typically have many issues that should have been discovered during beta testing, the beta testing takes so long that the updates are outdated and you sometimes get Sprint crapware which may just slow down your phone.
Tired of waiting for 6.5 to be made available until sometime next year?
Unlocker tools are now available for the Touch Pro2. The unlocker will allow you to unlock your phone and enable you to install the ROM of your choice. So you can download a ROM that HTC already made available, download a custom rom from XDA or PPC-Geeks or start cooking your own ROM for the Touch Pro2.
Unlocker available here.
