.247 has been good to me so far for the 2 weeks since upgrade. I do more data than calls though.

.247 has been the best for me so far, and I've tried quite a few.

I've yet to see a release that could tempt me away from .190, so that's my vote. :D

237 works wonders for me at 60% battery after 2 hours of music and about 250 messages, about 45 min on BBM and like 20 minutes of browsing. hehe. (and 9 hours off the charger)

167 battery life is horrible for me, with moderate use it barely last me a day with EDGE, I had a Sonyericsson X1 before my bold and I thought it was bad! Not anymore.

I've quickly jumped on every (or nearly every...) new OS build that has come down the pike for my Bold since it came out of the box...some have been good, some not so good.

For me, at least after I got rid of the Visual Voicemail app...4.6.0.247 has been the most rock solid build yet. And...gives me better battery life than any other version I can remember.

Until an "official" 5.0 is released...I'll stick with .247

Did you see a drain in battery life with VVM running? I'm on .237 now and never bothered to take it out. I had assumed AT&T would have released it by now.

I have found .247 to be the absolute worst for me, and I am waiting for the next beta release hopefully sooner than later!
