Just to note, I have not loaded this (yet), just found. So who wants to be the Thanksgiving guinea pig? :)

John Clark 11-22-2007 11:17 AM

Ah, crap...another one to try. NJBlackberry??????????

J/k, Rivvie....Thanks! Not sure I'm going to do it today, though. Maybe later today.

NJBlackBerry 11-22-2007 11:39 AM

Downloading now....

John Clark 11-22-2007 11:39 AM

Ok...it's calling out to me. What the heck....downloading now. Will post back later.

John Clark 11-22-2007 12:16 PM

Here goes nothin'--Installing now.

Yoryie 11-22-2007 12:44 PM

Such a small difference between version numbers! Maybe it is not really necessary to upgrade....NOT!

Downloading now :-)

xyrcncp 11-22-2007 01:10 PM

NJB, JC any differences?

John Clark 11-22-2007 01:16 PM

So far, so good. UMA came right up...all went well. Will have to give it some time to see how the UMA connection works out. That's been my biggest gripe is that UMA switches to EDGE to quickly when signal weakens.

It's been like an hour, where's our current status report? :)

John Clark 11-22-2007 02:58 PM

I'm happy with it. I haven't noticed much of anything different (in the hour or two on a holiday that I've used it ;-)) UMA still switches to EDGE, seemingly, too soon but maybe it needs to do that to handoff the call to EDGE properly. However, it seems like it changes back to UMA quicker from EDGE. It seems like a fairly stable build. I'll report back if I notice anything but today isn't a day when I use my BB that hard.

Seems to fix some DTMF over UMA problems

niteqwill 11-22-2007 06:42 PM

Ok, now my Blackberry Messenger list is gone.

How do I recover all my contact now?

John Clark 11-22-2007 06:44 PM

Everything backed up and restored just fine for me....Did it restore your data at the end?

Blaziniflo 11-22-2007 11:17 PM

Does this support chinese language? Pretty obvious question, but the last one (.175) even though it supported Chinese language displayed it incorrectly.

John Clark 11-22-2007 11:21 PM

The CJK in the file name i.e. 8320CJK indicates Chinese, Japanese, and Korean. An M in the file name i.e. 8320M indicates MultiLanugage and does not include Chinese.

Yes, this one includes Chinese.

Blaziniflo 11-22-2007 11:24 PM

You can actually type chinese and send chinese email with this os?

John Clark 11-22-2007 11:36 PM

Since I don't read, speak, or write Chinese I've never tried it. However, that's what I've been told. I've no first hand knowledge of this or how exactly it works.

While I haven't tried it yet, I would bet bank that a firmware from.... wait for it.... Singapore! would fully support Chinese. Seems like a reasonable conclusion for anyone to make. :)

EDIT: afterthought, one way it could not work is if the physical hardware for an 8320 sold in Singapore is different (maybe a different keypad? Nokia does this); has anyone ever seen the 8320 they sell? Maybe I can wade through their carrier website...

It should work fine. I installed the CJK languages from the Hong Kong CSL OS onto my T-Mo phone and I can both read and write Chinese. There's 3-4 different input methods if I remember correctly. I'm used to Pinyin so I only installed that one.
