...are we there yet?
O2 has provided a site where owners of the Xda Orbit can upgrade their device to Windows Mobile 6 (WM6) - at least they could if it worked. Punters attempting to get the upgrade, which has been available in Germany for some time, are told the HTC server is overloaded and they should try again later. However, it's been saying …
D/l last night and upgraded the phone.
Upgrade process is pretty straight forward and doesn't seem to cause any issues (although you do lose any installed programs - and there isn't a particular warning that this is the case).
Been using it this morning. Like the interface and there are some nice improvements.
Remains to be seen though whether this is the case in a month's time. Currently optimistic.
I best add if you have co pilot installed, be sure to read the instructons given to deactivate the license before you upgrade. if you dont, you are buggered and likely as not you will spend lots of lovely time on the phone to some helldesk operative trying to persuade them you arent installing it on a second device! be warned!
I've just called 02 and have been told that the site is not working (really??) and that it should be fixed within a month. Apparently my serial number doesn't exist! I asked if 02 planned in taking down the site whilst this maintenance was being carried out. I got no response.
I'm curious to how anyone else has been able to upgrade their phone, or were you one of the lucky ones?
