I bought a V525 which was already seem-editted to V600-software. The
benefits so far :
- better&faster menu with moving icons, very nice
- more memory available
- video player (who cares, I don't really)
- better standby-time (this will always be subject to discussion so take it
with a grain of salt)
You can do the modification yourself, with data-cable and specific software
(to be found for free on the internet). I haven't seen any negative posts
about wrecking the phone or anything else. For more info take a look on www.howardforums.com . Good luck.
