Installing

Calvin413 05-05-2010 03:25 PM

Up and running. Rebooting and reconfiguring WiFi. Nothing else to report.

I haven't noticed anything different or new.

Does SMS show up in Hidden Today theme previews? If so, just unread or all, regardless if they are read or not?

I know what you are asking and I am hoping it is only unread with this build. I will let you know, I have it loading now.

My findings so far...
 
The T-Mobile My Account app does not work with this build.

However, Shazam does work on this build.

Could not locate the Blackberry App world icon after installing the OS, even though the app showed up in the "Add-On" application list. Had to download again to get the icon to appear.

Font size of 3G/EDGE/UMA is now the same on the home screen and app screen.

Have ~15-20MB more application space on this build!! Had 132MB free after install before loading apps.

Scrolling through my pictures folder freezes the phone for a couple seconds after almost every swipe of the trackpad. Takes a lot longer for the thumbnail images to render on screen than the previous build I used. Scrolling through the pictures folder on build .586 was flawless. This version behaves like most of the early 5.0 builds - when it comes to viewing your pictures.

That's all I have to report for now.

I'm not usually picky but I think I really don't like this one. Among other things it seems to be eating between 4.5 and 5% of the battery/hr according to meterberry.

5.0.0.668

I've noticed the same thing, although I'm not running meterberry. Installed earlier today, and after 6.5hrs of use without a single phone call I am down to 60% battery. I'm usually at 75-90% battery after a full day at the office without any phone calls. Phone was at 100% battery when the OS first booted up. This might be one of the few betas that I might downgrade from.

I might give it one or two more days to see if it stabilizes. I remember that happening with some of the early 5.0 beta builds.

I am running since the install this afternoon, running YouMail Client instread of VVM, gmail and blackberry.net email using 1 folder for SMS, MMS, and EMail, Facebook, and I have 75% battery since the load this afternoon.

I don't see the lag in picture scrolling mentioned earlier, or any negative experience since the load.

I probably wouldn't call it a negative experience, but, is the T-Mobile My Account app working for you?

OK....Now I'm on a phone call and it switched from 3G to GPRS about 10 minutes into the call. GPRS reception is showing 2-3 bars. I had full 3G reception before, and during the first 10 minutes of the call. Had this problem on .586.

Anyone else having issues with calls dropping from 3G to GPRS? I was really hoping the radio issues were resolved with this build. Had my hopes up for the first 10 minutes with full 3G. After it dropped to GPRS I turned the data services off while on the call, had it drop down to grps and then turned data services back on. Still stuck on gprs, won't change to anything else. Also won't switch to UMA, but wi-fi did light up a couple minutes after I connected to my wi-fi network.

Now it switches from gprs to GPRS when I enable data services with wi-fi on or off, but it won't reconnect to my wi-fi network for data services. wi-fi icon stays grey, and isn't lighting up. Have disconnected from the network and joined again, but still not lighting up. This is all while on a phone call.

EDIT: After disabling wi-fi completely, and then re-enabling did it establish a data services connection, but still no UMA. Display showing GPRS. Took about 2-3 minutes after connecting to my wi-fi network for it to establish its data services connection.

I'm not able to log in to the RIM Twitter client after loading this OS. I did read others were having problems logging into Twitter after logging out, even on other OS's. Can anyone else confirm this?

I've also had one spontaneous reboot after a couple attempts to log in and then unchecking wifi in Manage Connections.

Appworld disappeared again. Had to reinstall it.

I don't know. I find little use for it. I probably could almost remove the .cod files before the load.

Excellent OS leak.

Working great on my 9700.

Mine stabilized overnight. No idea what it was doing yesterday but it's now at about 1-1 1/2 %/hr which is normal.
