A couple of observations after loading this OS:
Had to delete several apps since I lost several items (mostly saved emails and memos) from the process.
The calendar default had to be reset and items moved back to the default calendar via the 'move' command from the calendar options menu.
Most troubling is that the internal GPS does not work with BB Maps as it did before. It *might* be a carrier issue here since VZW does not have this build available yet so it's probably not supported.
I had to disable the 'compress memory' option in the security settings since this really slowed down the device compressing and decompressing programs.
I'll be upgrading my 8330 to a Storm2 so I decided to load OS 5.0 on my 8330 temporarily to see what it looked like. The new GUI and the threaded SMS features are a nice upgrade.
