Upgraded from .144 to .147 and it impresses me how much DM can restore after the update. There's so little to be done afterwards, just a BES reactivation and reloading my RSA token and I'm away.

Now if only RIM could upgrade their lame download servers so it doesn't take 40min to download - that's now longer than the upgrade takes.

Since the version numbers are the same, what kind of "update" are you expecting?

there is no difference between "beta" and official other than the fact it was released by a carrier.

A stupid question from a n00b.
Running my Bold under Rogers Wireless, Canada.
If I install that new OS, will it change the way Rogers network sees my phone? I mean, IMEI and PIN will stay the same, but I am just worried since this OS is from another carrier, I will have problems.

The whole idea for updating for me is that I want to install this multilanguage pack in order for my bold to be able to see russian language. I don't care much about typing Russian, but I need to be able to see it. I can see it on most of the emails, but in IM, depending on what type of IM software my friends are running, the phone does not display russian correctly.

To summarize
- Will the update influence how my carrier-locked phone works?
- Will the multilanguage pack from a European carrier let my phone read Russian correctly?
- (and one more) Should I install this OS if my phone is running fine? (if we leave the issue of russian language aside). I haven't had a single glitch in the past several days since I got the phone.

Thanks for the great forums, guys! Tons of info!

As I've posted elsewhere, the site wants me to register before I can download?
Apart from being in French, Australia doesn't have Orange so I cannot register.
Any suggestions please?

You just have to put in some personal information and even that info doesn't have to be real.

hi guys,

What exactly are the benefits of upgrading? I got my bold yesterday and its running .126.. from what i've read above some people are reporting more bugs on the upgrade so wondering whether to bother...?

Cheers!

Cause other bugs have been fixed and/or the OS has been optimized some. Don't forget that for every person claiming a bug there's probably 100 ppl without any problems. I would suggest upgrading at least to the officially released .147.

I have tried .126, .147. and .150 . I had the best results with .147, and that's where I will stay until I can get a newer beta than .150.

Well firstly you must be in a country where Orange operates and secondly I think they're asking for a serial number (I don't speak French).

You don't need to be in a country where Orange operates. I'm in Canada and have no problems downloading the file. Just put in a different country. Put in Canada, Ontario.
