Attention ebayer's - if you want to buy a Motorola MPx220, be aware the device you are are bidding for is the latest hardware.
As mentioned before, Motorola made some hardware changes for the final version (which is on sale from Cingular and soon from other carriers as well) and to get the best stand-by results as well as all the other benefits, you need the the final hardware because the release ROMs are optimized for that hardware, not for the previously used engineering samples.
Unfortunately, many devices - which were released for developing purpose only - made its way to ebay and if you will buy such a device, it will never work as good as the the final version is/will work.

Now the question is how to get the information which hardware is used? The is a hidden code which provides you some information about your hardware and software (nothing secret at all but good to know):

Enter *#**837# [Green Send Key] to get the information:

If the Motorola MPx220 reports HW Ver.:0006 or better, it's the latest hardware and you are on the save side. If it is something smaller, it's an engineering sample.

Cheers ~ Arne
