linkys = links. If someone BBMs me a web link , etc., it is not clickable.

WTF? are you saying that the ability to have an active web link in BBM is gone?

I guess that means copy and paste the link in to the browser?

how did they screw this up?

Yep, worked great. Cleared up some issues I was having, but we'll see how it goes over the next couple days.

I upgraded to .168 os. Before I upgraded, I was constantly getting disconnected while tethering my Bold but after upgrading I'm no longer getting kicked off plus the 3G speeds seem to be faster.
