v710 hackers reward program

Monday, 6 September 2004, 12:31 PM EST

The v710 Hacker Reward Program is a community-sponsored initiative to enable key features on the Verizon/Motorola v710 mobile phone which were disabled by the carrier.

The first initiative is focused around two disabled Bluetooth features on the phone called OBEX and OPP. If this first initiative is successful, we may sponsor additional rewards for other features.

The first v710 Hacker's pot will be rewarded to the first individual to provide working instructions to successfully enable OBEX and OPP functionality on the Verizon v710 by January 3, 2005. The winner will also have the option of remaining anonymous.
