Default Back to.42

Please Login to Remove!

I got tired of waiting to see if RIM would do the right thing and restore those things that were lost in upgrades so I just switched back to TMO .42. I got back the Autodim turn off feature, the left side key does double duty. I use a 1 gb microsd so I'm OK there. I'll have to re-find out what the down side is as time goes on but right know we are happily camping. Wheeeeee!

Yeah.....I miss my auto dim too. My bblight doesn't seem to work either, but I don't think I'll downgrade though.

I haven't even upgraded mine yet from .42. I have very few problems. I don't even use an SD card yet so that's not an issue for me either.

This backlight issue has me a bit bugged. Going back to .42 I noticed another glitch in the backlight saga. When I was going back and forth from Auto to not, I found that there is a brightness level with Auto on that isn't available with Auto off. With Auto off you can't get to this ultra-bright level. I tried it with a flashlight on the sensor. It is very noticeable when outside in sunlight. Try it.

What really annoys me is the fact that now to snooze the alarm you have to actually look at the screen and click the scroll wheel, whereas before all you had to do was hit any key.

Good point! I noticed that as well. Why would RIM roll that feature back, I wonder?

Maybe a side effect of fixing the trackball issue? I don't know, but it really pisses me off to actually have to look at my phone to get it to snooze now. GRR!

what i hate about the .64 is that sometimes you get a call and cant seem to push any button to answer it. Its like the phone is locked :/

thast the only thing pushing me to go back to .42

Well, using the phone for about 1 hour now on the warranty replacement, I have determined the backlight issue is a loser for the .64 OS, I'm wiping the phone and installing .42
