I swear, you'd think people would "get" this concept already.

So, I have installed and so far it works well. After the install and BES activation it ran a little slow for about 5 minutes. I think it was still doing a lot of communicating with my BES. HTML works like a charm as does Doc to Go. Mem leaks seem to be at a minimum but I do not have many "after market" apps installed. I have since upgraded another 8130 and that user is also very satisfied with the performance and new features.

It works fine for me. I'm using this on a Sprint 8130. Nothing wrong that I've seen. I did notice that the hour glass shows up more occasionally while visiting certain sites or using certain apps.

I had an issue getting jivetalk to connect with 4.5.0.66. I had docs to go installed on 4.3 before I installed 4.5. All is well now however. I uninstalled JT and D2G and installed D2G then did a OTA install of JT.

I just noticed the when viewing a pic, i no longer have the "fill screen" option... anyone else?

I thought 4.5 was to have HTML Email ? I'm not seeing it. Is there a setting I'm missing or somthing ?

Three things bug me about the 4.5.0.66 release

1) If the phone is locked you can not change it to/from vibrate anymore with the # key. You have to unlock it first.

2) BB Maps is SLOW like about 2-5 seconds behind where I'm actually at when I'm driving.

3) The phone seems to be sluggish at times now.

Anyone else have the same problems ?

I have 4.5.0.66 installed on my verizon 8130. I dont see docs 2 go at all on the device. Does this take a service book to get it?

It takes making sure it was checked in the OS upgrade in Application Loader. Was it?

It took me 2 hours to upgrade a user here (including OTA EA)

Not sure why it needed to be reactivated, unless it was not done on his PC with DTM.

User also lost all previous emails and apps, LOL. I told him it might before doing it.
