Please Login to Remove!

Been about a month since the 8900 has been out and already a O.S update? Haven't had any problems with mine although did notice battery draning farly quickly. Is this problem solved with this update? Thanks

If your device is working well and the way you like it with no real issues, then don't feel the need to update the OS and risk bigger problems.

Also, the battery drain you mention could be caused by programs running in the background. And it doesn't hurt to keep your device plugged in when you can - and it might actually be good for these Lithium-ion batteries. You should never run it completely down.

The newer version of an OS has some bug fixes.. and most of the time those bugs are not visible or "tangible" to device users unless it is a glaring one like UMA to EDGE handoff or not working.

A person may not be using a specific feature in the device which is buggy so OS upgrade may not really be required.

However, apart from normal bug fixes, RIM developers also improvise the overall OS code quality which improves the day to day functioning of the device. This is generally true with a product company.
