Treo 680 owners get messages from AT&T to have a required update installed
Change is something people may have a hard time adjusting to – especially when they've been so used to something for so long. If it ain't broke, then don't fix it. The old saying does hold some validity, but some loyal Palm Treo 680 owners using AT&T's service might have to budge. AT&T Wireless started to send both written notifications and SMS to the many Treo 680 owners that presently call AT&T their voice provider. In the message, they are making it mandatory for devices to have the 2.11 update in order to continue having service once September 15 comes along. Just as a refresher, the update makes some improvements to Bluetooth performance, push to talk support, support for SDHC cards, and power saving enhancements. The required update will basically allow for “optimal call performance” under their network coverage. Change might be a good thing in this case, unless you just want to defy the notice and attempt to see what consequences await you come mid September. Or you could just submit and download that update – which might even make your Treo 680 run a tad bit better.

Mandatory? What kind of BS is this? It seems that AT&T is trying to control their customers.
