Loaded on mine. So far I've noticed misspelled words turning bold in BBM but everything else seems to work fine.

Ok, after a bit more using .607, here's what I'm seeing:
  • It feels faster, switching between portrait and landscape feels good.
  • The SureType keyboard font has changed a little, but that's minor
  • The browser handles the one Ajax page I wrote for work better. Seems faster too
  • BB Messenger 5 is finally included in the OS update.

No lock ups, lag or anything like that yet.

Been using it for a few days and haven't noticed any problems. In addition to maddman's list...
  • Interface seems snappier
  • Landscape keyboard layout has changed; keys are more spread out
  • Reset function tells which module performed the reset
  • Pressing power to lock the screen is much faster
  • Media player interface seems to have improved
  • BBM .66 is nice and fast

So far, so good!

Did my update in 20 mins. So far, no issues. Everything worked as expected.

one more thing that is new: the startup screen beginning with a color 3-D hour glass istead of 2-D clock face.....

The only problem I've noticed so far has been with BBM. Occasionally the keyboard won't show by clicking either the Show Keyboard button or the text box. I have to back out of BBM to the main menu, then click in to the current chat for it to work properly.

Anyone else notice this?

Didn't notice that on mine. but again, I am not a heavy user with BBM either, so my observation may not apply. So far, I have not experienced any unusual with other common applications.

Hi,

I have installed this OS and while everything seems alright, Shazam app does not work... it shows the "view agreement / setup" screen and when I click on setup it changes screen and shuts down...

Anyone else having this problem? I have done battery pull and re-installed Shazam without success

Alsoooo... When I'm listening to music and using the calculator it used to stop the music if I hit DEL a few times (because it makes another sound) anyway in this OS that action will freeze the phone and it totally sucks...

Im thinking about going back or maybe downgrading to the official .517

Though picture viewer seems to be faster, but zooming still sucks...

When selecting long text (i tried in memos) if you drag up or down one of the holders in either side and release, then the screen will also swipe as if you were scrolling, very annoying... (same happens while draging the cursor.
Another bug that still persist is when editing a playlist, if you try to move a song, you will only be able to move it up or down until it hits the end of the screen, instead of scroling through the other songs and allowing to place it upper or lower on the list.

And lastly the "Show Songs" screen (in the Now Playing screen hit menu) which I find very very useful, still is very very choppy and laggy when trying to scroll....

PS: I wish they would allow video to be played from either side of landscape... I am left handed and its easier for me to hold in landscape with my left hand and be able to operate buttons with my thumb in that position.. and also charging cable gets in the way if you want to prop it up while playing video

I have had the same problem with Shazam. I tried to uninstall and reinstall on both the free version and encore but it still will not run set up. I have emailed Shazam support but suspect they will have to do an upgrade. I have also had an issue with Ultimate Lock not accessing the device lock key. Other than that the upgrade seems to be an improvemen, faster and more responsive key pad.

I'm having the same problem with Shazam. When you receive your reply from their support, can you please post it here?

Thanks in advance!
