so far so good.. some minor items but it's all good.

Weather Network WeatherEye crashes on load, no definitive selection on BBM so you'll have a chat bubble with a few lines where it shows each time received but not highlighted.

And I have about 80MB free memory. Looks fine to me, works fine for me.

Just installed it...very nice!

Finally the browser is decent.

Won't be using a lot of apps with this though. Memory resources are very tight. Wish they will lighten up the memory requirements with future releases.

Sorry... from 256 to 512MB

yeah, I'm thinking I'll have to run OS5 'til then. Sigh.

As much as I like the update, rebooting and constantly worrying about running out of memory is no good.

battery life seemed pretty weak too. Had to go out of town this afternoon. Left with a fully charged battery, came back with less than 20%. Usually, I'm good for 2 days of use before it gets to that level.

It works very well for me as well. I had two issues with it one my sms went haywire and I couldn't see what was sent or received and two was a weird battery issude it went from 35% to red but a battery pulled fixed them both. I'm really pleased with this update overall and no issuses since.

I have yet to install OS6 to my 9700 because I want you guys to be my guinea pigs, hehe. My concern for memory: I have 91 MB of application memory on my 9700, so would I have enough memory to run 6.0? Also, is Russian language support offered in this leak?

If you have 91 megs before the update I don't think you would have enough afterwards. I had over 100 before the update and I was at 70-80 after.

I just installed it on my Rogers handset and it was painless upgrade and problem free so far, only issue is the cursor on sms & e-mail as stated before

and re-disabled the event log which helped dramatically

Love OS 6 so simple and sleek

A little bug I see, but I don't know if everybody has it, in social feeds, when opening a feed in the rss reader, it doesn't show the resume of the article, only if I quiet the social feed by pushing the red button and come back after that in social feed, this is very annoying!! Someone has the same problem? I did a restart but same thing after that
So anybody have the same bug in social feed??

Cannot use the Browser with this OS and 2G/3G data service:

I am unable to Access the Internet with this OS version:
I can surf the net ok, when I am connected with Wifi
I can access network locations which are within private Networks using the BES MDS Services
I can receive Emails, send PIN Messages using GRPS/3G connection
I can use TCP services like SSH/Telnet over MDS, regardless if use WiFi or 2G/3G

But I cannot access normal internet URLS like Cell Phones, Smartphones & Mobile Phones from BlackBerry.com, if I turn off WiFi
Does not make any difference if I use the "blackberry browser" or the "browser".


I have called my wireless provider and made them resend all service books.
I made a battery pull
I have successful activated the BB again
I have resend all service books from the BES
I have updates the IT policy rules to include Version 6 specific features on the BES
I have resent the IT policy (default IT policy)

Still no internet - this is painful.

My guess is, if I am alone with this problem, that there must be some new service books, which my provider does not have.

Anyone else expierencing this ?

80 meg free isn't enough?

I'm trying to use memory boost to keep as much memory free. Seems to be working but I still need at least a day or 2 to see if this OS is a keeper or not.

I do like it though...first impressions: Browsing, yeah!, Youtube works and not grainy like before, I think they improved the video camera but I'll have to check it again with better lighting. And best of all, it feels a lot quicker or more responsive.

I'm looking for a more extensive keyboard shortcut guide...ie for browsing hold the alt+touchpad to zoom...the device help is ok but doesn't cover things like this and seems to be slow in retrieving help.

Installed it but now, since it does not have any theme enabled so everything looks weird. I downloaded two themes from App World but still can not find the place where to enable a new theme. Any idea? Otherwise BBM, Internet, Messaging is working.. I wish I can switch to theme otherwise I can not see the selections. every icon is almost same with a little ? mark on it
>> As per the help: Options-->Display-->Screen Display... It will not let me go in screen display. shows the font size etc for a split sec and then comes back to Display.. will not let me change anything under Screen display

85% battery yesterday at like 6pm. 80% this morning at 10:30am

Wi-Fi on, a bit of BBM and texting (few messages) and about 40 minutes of music listening, so light use but I'm very impressed. I'll run it all day until about 4:45pm and report on battery life then.

It is very very snappy compared to 5.0 builds. When on UMA in 5.0 and downloading files - even after a fresh install and battery pull - I would get the clock while it seemed to pause and digest whatever 70 kb or so it had just downloaded despite it having the ability to zip right through the file on UMA. Restoring my apps from App World this time around it just downloads the 3+ Mb ones in one straight shot in seconds, and installs them just as fast. Installing BBM used to be a 5 minute or longer ordeal as it slowly digested the chunks of that big file and then even longer to install it. Took literally 10 seconds on UMA. That's just my impressions on the overall phone speed in terms of handling downloads, but it is very fast in all respects. RIM really streamlined the OS to operate at potential it would seem on first impression after a day.
