  1. Hey guys! Thanks for playing the comments I had on the Q and recommendations on a device. One thing that I forgot to mention on the second comment on what device to get was for me. I actually have since purchased the Q and am VERY happy with my decision. One thing that most people will criticize about it is that it packs the smartphone edition of the WM5 OS. To me, this OS is perfect for what I do!

    The comments that you made about choosing a device that suits your needs are dead on. I tell all of the members on the forums that I frequent is that there is no one device for everyone. You really nailed that point, and I respect you for that. I agree that the Treo and the 6700 definitely have thier niche audience as well, so really it depends on what you are looking for.

    As for the question and answer on the disconnection of the Q’s EV-DO, I have to agree with Dave. There is no way that I have been able to figure out how to do this yet. Doesn’t mean that there isn’t software out there that can do this, but I don’t think the native OS can.

    Take Care, and thanks again!
