    Anyone with an A680 should consider getting the new software version
    YA28. It fixes some key problems including missed/dropped calls from
    data activity (which I had been complaining about for a long time).
    Also fixes background noise/beeps issues during calls and some SMS
    fixes.

    You have to get it at a Sprint store. Not all stores do updates so
    call first if your not sure.

    Thanks, Larry. I had my A680 updated to software YA28 and PRL 10026 on
    4/6/2005 at the SPCS store at 843 Mission St in San Francisco. Instead
    of hand writing a ticket and receipt, Carla looked up my phone number in
    the computer, scanned my handset's ESN barcode, and printed out an
    "eTicket Work Order." After 20 minutes of browsing the newer handsets
    on display, I had my updated phone.

    Did you lose any phonebook entries or picture assignments ?

    No. My phonebook and "in camera" photos seem intact. I had no photo
    assignments, but I had some phone book assignments of the A680's
    built-in cartoony images and they're intact.

    Unless something goes very wrong, a software update shouldn't erase your
    programming.

    Which is what everyone always says, but it is also good to know nothing
    went wrong.

    Steph -
    I'd guess that since 1997 with SPCS, and with 4 lines and many phones,
    I've brought in handsets for updates maybe 15 or more times (the stores
    are conveniently located for me, and once upon a time you had to bring
    in the phone for a PRL update as well, which now can be done Over The Air).

    I can remember two failures, probably both with Samsung 3500's. One
    time they fried the phone and gave me a replacement on the spot, and
    another time I think they got stuck and the only way out was a complete
    reset. Neither was a problem for me because since 1999 I've used
    software to back up my phonebook to a PC (then Paragon FoneSync, now
    Futuredial SnapSync), so I could reload my phonebook into the handset.
