After bricking my first 9700 the 2nd day I had it I spent untold hours on the line with Parallels. They KNOW there are problems with USB ports and blackberrys.
Last night I finally risked the OS load using DM for MAC. It was a little scary at times. It left the device without icons, just a list of apps. BUT I loaded .405 and it WORKED!!!
Mostly I wanted to cure the idiotic sms/address bug. Not sure yet.
I thought battery life with .330 was awesome compared to 9000.
I'm THRILLED to finally be able to update without Parallels/Windows.
