Default UPDATES & ENHANCEMENTS to BOLD OS (4.6)

Please Login to Remove!

Heres a short list of Updates and Enhancements that i've noticed while using the bold for the past 2 days.


General Updates
xxx8226; Password is no longer access through security settings and has its section under options
xxx8226; Options>password


xxx8226; Delete/Uninstall Apps from their icon, VS. Advanced options>applications> uninstall


xxx8226; Downloaded apps are automatically saved in the xxx8220;downloadsxxx8221; folder rather than anywhere on the home screen. (as per older OS releases)


xxx8226; Screen Size Clock appears whenever USB/ Charger is connected
xxx8226; ability to edit/set alarm from this screen


xxx8226; xxx8220;bedside modexxx8221; for alarm


xxx8226; Stop watch
xxx8226; Timer


BB messenger Updates:

xxx8226; Broadcast message, sends one message to all your messenger contacts. i.e. make an announcement xxx8220;party @ my house 8pm, RSVP ASAPxxx8221;- GREAT FEATURE!!
xxx8226;Forward Contact- ability to forward one contact to the other through BB messenger(shown below)


xxx8226; Custom status: I believe this was available on some CDMA OS releases already but its new to GSM builds(or just new to me) and seems to be a more interactive way to communicate your availability.



BB messenger Options:
xxx8226; Allow on the phone presence status
xxx8226; Allow now playing status- i.e: MSN style xxx8220;now playing: NAS- Heroxxx8221; beside your contact name
(unable to grab screen shot, as i dont have 2 BOLD's to demonstrate)

Im sure I may have missed some, so feel free to add to this list.

Another difference with the 4.6 OS is with the spell check option, the device can now be set to check words as you type and misspelled words will be underlined. Previous OS versions did not have this option.
