Default Re: Leaked OS 6.0.0.526 for the BlackBerry Bold 9780

Thanks for the links. I was delayed in getting to this update but am I ever glad that I did! There is one major fix in this....the "double character while typing" problem is completely gone....woohooo!

I was convinced (as were many others in this forum) that this common 9780 problem was due to a hardware flaw. Many people reported switching their phones several times with their carrier before it was resolved. It had gotten so bad that I was considering getting rid of the 9780.

Lo and behold...updated to 6.0.0.526 and the problem is completely gone! I have been testing it like crazy foe the past couple of days and have not had a single double character. Previously I could not type a complete sentence without getting some (especially double spaces that caused autotype to end the sentence :( )

Other than that major fix, I haven't really noticed anything different since memeory usage and battery life were not an issue before.

This release is a keeper.
