    I think so, I also read somewhere else that using the DCU-60 cable can cause the flashing to fail because of interference, one of the sites I was looking at recommended using the DCU-65 cable because it has two decouplers that reduce interference.

    It's fully debranded. But i can't see the 3g network. It's either down or the z780 firmware doesn't see the 3g for tmo. Will have to check tomorrow and see if the 3g comes back.
    edit: My option gt 307 cannot see the 3g network either. It's not live. Too early to see if it doesn't see 3g. Once my 3g data card sees the network, i will post back if the tm506 w/z780 firmware can see tmo 3g network. It's nice being unbranded!

    are you possible to grab 3G after flashing?
    my guess is "yes", because bands is controlled by GDFS, and GDFS is not affected by flashing

    3g isn't running right now in my area. I don't know. It's usually up but i can't roam on it. They have not launched it yet. I had a big sign of relief when my data card couldn't pick up 3g either!

    Yet another edit: It comes with google maps w/gps and a FM Radio with RDS! If this thing gets 3g, i will be one very happy camper!

    This is great news! I don't know what the advantages of the Z780 firmware are over the TM506 but it's good to know there are options.

    I don't see the Z780 firmware option using the DaVinci client. Where you get that?

    When i bought the credit, i told it i was using a z780, NOT a tm506. After i purchased the credit, i just ran davinciteam and it showed me a bunch of z780 firmwares. I wonder if you have to tell davinciteam you have a z780 when you buy the credit.

    When i bought the credit, (z780) i just ran the client and when i clicked on the "update firmware" option, it just showed z780 firmwares. I don't remember exactually how. I never told the client what phone i had.
