What abt the battery issue? btw thank you for the quick reply

Doctor A 02-07-2009 09:22 AM

Hi Guys,
I rely on UMA for reception at home with very poor cellular signal inside my house. The write-up mentions UMA holding calls better and I will suddenly disconnect during some calls. Can anyone comment on UMA improvement with this OS?
Thanks!
Doc

e1000 02-07-2009 02:11 PM

UMA seems solid but then again, I didn't have a problem before. Probably because I don't talk on the phone very much so I haven't noticed.

Battery life seems yet again improved over 133 and 144. It's tough to say because normally I'm at work and on EDGE (in more than one way) and not at home on UMA. Been off the cradle for 6hrs and I'm at 95% battery with moderate usage.
