Will a software upgrade wipe my address book? (T720)

    I have a T720 at 1.2.22.19c. I am thinking of having this brought up to
    date. Will flashing it wipe the address book, settings, etc?

    Yes. The VZ tech should be able to save and reload the address book though.
    Don't know about the settings.

    If all goes well it shouldn't. However if the flash screws up and they have
    to replace the phone, you will be starting out with a completely empty
    phone. If possible back it up using a data cable or ask the tech to see if
    he can do it for you.

    When I had a T720 (I switched to the V60s...), I went through several
    software upgrades. Each time the local VZW tech saved my address book prior
    flashing the phone, and she restored the address book after the upgrade
    completed. The settings were not saved, though. One other suggestion -- if
    you have the Mobile Office Kit, you can use the included software (QuickLink
    Mobile Phonebook) to periodically backup your own address book to a PC.

    Is your phone working well with the present firmware? If so I would
    suggest not updating. Many phones are fried this way. If you do
    upgrade there might be a $5 charge for transferring your phone book. I
    had to pay this when swapping a damaged phone a few months ago.

    Some time around Wed, 18 Feb 2004 20:21:14 GMT (give or take a month), someone who says they are
    named "Ken" <googleguy_nj@yahoo.yahoo.com> fired up the tubes on the teletype and rambled on about:

    Back when I had the T720 (shudder... great phone when it worked) I had an upgrade done.
    Lost all my settings, but after having some many problems and replacements going through them all to
    adjust them back to my preferences became second nature. ;)

    lucky.

    My phone is working well except for one recent problem. My voicenotes play
    back fine for a day or two. But eventually I hear nothing when I play them
    back and they actually become deleted by themselves. These are short notes
    and I am nowhere near reaching any memory limits. I am thinking that
    perhaps this bug is fixed in some software level.
