Meanwhile I am back from OS6 to OS5 on the 9700.

So far, the "downgrade" gave me:
On the plus side:
30% more lines I can view in the messagelist
30% more lines in the calendar - and, a calendar which is easier to use
A web browser which will display any page on the first attempt readable, without having to flip through the page and zoom more then reading
A snappier UI in general
80Mb free instead of 30
A blackberry maps which is able to store locations in subfolders
A blackberry maps which has a smooth and fast scrolling map
A blackberry maps which can follow my track
A blackberry maps where I can easily locate myself by a big red dot

On the minus Side:
Website rendering is a litte incorrect, but, since i want to read the content, and, dont want to decide wether or not a site looks good on the 3" screen, this is rather a plus then a minus
No geotagging using cell tower location for the camera

The larger part of this list will not change, regardless which BB is used, even, a 9900 wont behave much different.

After the one year trial of OS6 i found that I rather did an upgrade today to blackberry OS8, then a downgrade to an older version.
