Anybody care to comment on the overall volume on the 8900 now? Does this OS increase the volume at all? I found my 8900 to be much to low sounding regardless of what ringtone or message alert I used so I switched devices as I work in noisy environments.

Lex - no increase in volume from what i can tell...

Rar9 - you cannot delete the vendor branding at all, no ways around it

no issues that i can see with this build

cannot comment on the BES activation as i have never done it... but i think if you upgrade and do a restore it should connect to the BES again without issues not sure tho

Well I must correct you.. IŽm was also connected to the BES. The Restore does a good job so that the reactivation will happen faster, but the 8900 does need a new REACTIVATION Password.

Default Camera Bug

I believe that a found a small bug in the new OS.

Yesterday I was taking pictures without an MircoSD card. Once the memory was full I could not delete or save the taken picture. The camera also did only display a black image.

Sending the pic via Email worked.

I really had to more some of the picture to get rid of the problem.

Cheers

Update on battery life. Originally the battery drain looked like it was dramatically improved but after some more standby with very light voice and text messaging it lasted about 3 days. So only an extra day compared to the 2 days ore update. I think it would only last 4 days on pure standby.

How is everyone else battery life? Is this normal for the 8900 or do I have a defective one?

Does anyone think keeping it in the oem pouch causes faster battery drain for some reason? Just upset at the advertising of 15.5days standby. I wonder what conditions they tested to get that result

Please post your battery life for comparison
Thanks

3 days is actually long. Most people use their Curve quite more and have to load the battery every night.

Its not much, but keep in mind that the BB keeps online 24/7 and this needs battery life.
Im quite satisfied with the battery of my 8900, even more with the new Firmware.

If RIM continues like this weŽll all be happy soon.

10% after 9 hours of heavy msn/emails/texting/bb im'ing/bluetooth music streaming/wifi on. I think im pretty satisfied but I was worried it would die before I got home. Time to look into a spare battery.

I don't have much experience with lost passwords, but a quick search says that letting it fail 10 times will let you reinstall the data.

Can anyone chime in with more?

Thanks

Before giving the password error it says "connecting to device" but it looks like it never does...

The Seidio battery for the 8900 does not need any extra space and has 15% more power, at least seidio says so.

I received the Seidio one week ago and it feets perfectly in the BB.

I am very happy with this new battery, I have now 2 full days with heavy use (mail, phone,messenger,viigo, browser) and 3 days with normal use.

I recommend this battery to everyone, the 8900 is now perfect in all point of view!

I bought it directly from their official website, it was only 44,95 USD but the shipping to Bucharest killed me, another 49,82 USD so in total 94,77 USD! Quiet a lot of money but I think it deserve this sacrifice
