I downgraded to 133 too from 152. I could not pick up GPS location and could not send out video or pictures to email address in normal size.

Me too.

.133 does seem to be a better build than .152.

I went back to .144 yesterday, .152 was pretty sluggish in comparison. I also found that reboots of the device take about 1 minute less as well when on .144.

Hopefully the next batch of betas for the 8900 will be a little better.

Odd though -- .152 is an official RIM release now (Mobily - Saudi Arabia) -- not a beta (unless Mobily has released a beta to its customers?)...

I've been running .152 for the past 24 hours, and so far it's worked well for me. I haven't tried youtube -- I imagine I'd have the same problems others have reported -- but everything else has seemed to work well. I've had WiFi/UMA turned on as my preferred connection, and it connects when I'm at home (and is blazingly fast) and reconnects when I'm at my local library or Panera (haven't tried other locations yet, but these three are representative). I've had BeeJiveIM logged into three accounts all day, Facebook app running, Viigo and Google Maps running (using GPS), and the 8900 has been fast and responsive. I've been using it like this for about 12 hours so far, and the battery is at 85%. So far so good...

Youtube doesn't work still. Use .114 in the .152 OS and it will.

He's using a different package. You tube works on .144 so that's what I'm on now.

I heard that .165 is better than.152 , and had improvements over .163.
