I never would have dreamed that WM5 would be a better option than WM6, but it appears to be the case. Is anyone else having similar problems?
    Which WM6 rom did you use, AT&T or unbranded? I haven't had any stability issues with the unbranded rom, but found the AT&T rom to be a bit buggy. CV wouldn't work all the time, XM Radio would freeze up, and the most annoying was the speed dial not working. At first the AT&T rom seemed to be faster but after awhile it started getting funky and the start menu seemed to take a bit longer to show. In the end I reinstalled the unbranded rom from Palm and haven't had any problems at all.

    Calisoldier83, I have not had the tilt but I did have the 8125 which is pretty much the same phone just 2 generations old. Like digitalslurp said, the slide out keyboard is VERY annoying, tha'ts why I only had my 8125 for about 5 months. At first you won't think it's that bad but if you're a texter or do a lot of emails on your device, you will get tired of it quick. The bonus to the Tilt is the larger screen and WiFi but those are not enough for me to go back to a device with the slide out keyboard. The Treo is great for one handed use, the form factor is great, this is by far the best phone I have ever owned! As for the Q and the Blackjack II, these are smartphones not PPC's, so you do not have the touch screen and lose the copy and paste ability. Again, if you are a texter and email fanatic, I would not recommend either the Q or the BJ II.

    I'm a big fan of the treo w/ WM6 too.

    I've had a PPC-6700 on sprint (great phone), Motorola Q on Sprint, the SMT-5600 on attws, the 2125 on cingular, blackjack on cingular, and 8525 on at&t, so I've felt like i"ve run the full gamut.

    With a candy-bar form factor, smaller size, and ability to run full touch screen apps, I find the 750 much more capable than the standard fare smartphone; but also much more managable than the slideout keyboard phones that HTC produces.

    I still love the HTC phones, but I use the Treo for everyday use. If only the Moto Q9/BJ2/pantech duo folks knew what they're missing...hahaha

    It was the AT&T rom. Sounds like all that delay didn't really help fix the problems with the update.

    i have of course the treo 750, nokia n75 unlocked and debranded and a v3xx. i have trouble deciding what phone to use everyday and i tend to use the treo the most followed by the n75 a close 2nd. ive tested both phones closely and they are pretty much the same as far as music playing and camera quality. the real differences are hsdpa on treo and qwerty. i had a 8525 for a few days but didnt like cause of the slide out.

    Try loading the unbranded ROM and see if that fixes the problems. You can find the link on page 1 of this thread. If you still want to use Cingular Video (CV) then you can find a .cab file over on the xda developers forum that installs everything you need for CV to work. There's also a .cab for XM Radio and other AT&T stuff that you might want.

    I'd love to try, but the upgrade has now bricked my Treo. Oh well. I've put up with enough Windows Mobile problems. It's on to the Blackberry.

    I havent come accross the "perfect" phone yet, but the Treo with WM6 i sby far the best one I have owned. Yes, there are a few things I wish were different, but I would not consider any other phone curenlty on the market and definitely not a Blackberry. I have a Dr.'s note saying Im ot allowed to go next to one!

    The Treo 750 was built by HTC. It was just built at Palm's request.

    My upgrade to WM 6.0 for my Treo 750 went fine, it's the upgrade to WM 6.0 for my 8125 that was a pain. I managed to brick it on the first try, but it went through on subsequent tries.

    This ROM is not as good as the Unofficial ATT ROM for me. I find myself soft resetting every few days. Battery drains faster, Email alerts not always working, Device will not automatically go into standby mode (I have to press the "power" button) all is a little annoying, but not enough for me to go back to the unofficial one.

    New Treo 750 User hear

    I just got the Treo 750 in mid December, because the Treo is the only phone my IT department will support via the Good software link to our MS-Outlook server. I had everything working great with WM5 and Good. My coporate Outlook interfaced perfectly. However while my Treo support staff were gone for the Holidays, I installed WM6 on my own. I tried to reinstall the Good link software using the password provided by my IT staff. When I click on the OTA set-up on the Treo, it get an error message telling me to contact my IT department because our network does not support my phone. I looked up the most recent Good 5.0 and it supports WM6. Until I can talk to our Treo specialists (who only are familiar with the Palm OS but willing to learn Windows Mobile), I suspect that our version of Good is older and designed to support WM5 but not WM6.

    Any ideas?

    I only used WM5 for a week or so, but it seemed to load web pages much faster than WM6 does. Has anybody experienced slower downloads?
