It's pretty stable, I've been on it since it came out yesterday and I haven't gotten disconnected or anything. Overall

I've downloaded the .jad file for my 8320. How do I go about installing it through Desktop Manager since it is not .alx?

I'm having the same issue with not being able to connect over EDGE. Connecting over wifi works great but nothing over EDGE. Anyone get past this or figure this out? I can't even ping the server.

Edit: Ok...I'm not sure what I did but it finally works. I tried auto-configuration (while on EDGE) and at first it didn't work. I tried switching from BIS to BES to TCP to no avail. Exited out, tried again...nothing. Sent an email to Beejive support. Then tried auto-configuration again (while on EDGE only) and it finally worked and logged in.

Right now my settings are:

Mobile Network Transport: TCP
WiFi Option: Wifi Preferred

I really don't know what I did as these were the settings in there to begin with...

ok so I pointed my browser and it only gave me the option to download version 1.3 which I already have. I'm guessing I have to go and do this through DM? is it worth the trip downstairs?

Thanks John, what's the advantage of having the text so large?

Is that larger text a new option in this beta? I don't see any option changing text size in mine, but I have the current release version. My eyes would like the larger text also.

It's not really bigger text than it was but each contact gets two lines to accommodate the buddy icon on the right. I like it.

Ok, cool. The screenshots are larger than the actual screen which makes the text look big.

Also, there's different shading between each contact that doesn't show on the screenshot, too.

It sounds like this beta is pretty stable. Has anyone tried it on the 8703e? I'm not normally one for beta software unless I can run it on a virtual machine, like on my PC. And I don't like to take risks with my precious

You can set this up for JiveTalk in Profiles, that option has always been there.

I haven't chatted with anyone on it but it's been running and connected for several hours. I had a little trouble getting it to connect over EDGE but after running the auto configuration (a couple times) finally got it working over EDGE and WiFi.

Wirelessly posted (BlackBerry8100/4.2.1 Profile/MIDP-2.0 Configuration/CLDC-1.1 VendorID/100)

Tried this version for a while, but went back to 1.0.3. Too many problems signing in and out. I like the look though. Looking forward to a stable release.
