Just curious.

If i upgrade the OS for my Dopod D810 from WM5 to WM6, would it affect the functionality of my GPS chip? (i.e. disable the chip)

What are the plus or pros for upgrading to WM6?

Kindly advice. :)

Thank you.

Hey bro, i upgraded my D810 to wm6 speed seems a little faster but must warn you first, the windows live application will copy all your msn contacts to the phone's phonebook when you try to log on to msn. i deleted the emails one by one from my D810 phonebook, next thing i know my msn contacts all gone! as for gps i have not tried so cannot comment.

nope, it will not disable the GPS. all GPS capabilities will be retained.

and as for the Windows Live Messenger issue, you can upgdae to a newer build (10.6.31.1600). it could be found here: http://forum.xda-developers.com/showthread.php?t=328392 (you need to register to download)

have fun with your phone! =)

HP dun really have support for WM6 upgrade for their older versions. Upgrade at your own risk.
