Thanks, unfortunately this 5.0 came with 4.7.0.41 BBM and the leaked 5.0.0.8 does not work with it. So I didn't bother to report on it, but I will now update the article with that info.

Yes. That's consistent with the leaks for the other phones. BBM 4.7 on OS 5.0 is running better for me than BBM 5.0 on a 4.7 OS

Good report, but you didn't really mention any negatives about it.

Nice report.

If I may contribute I've found that voice dialing doesn't work and neither does QuickPull.

Are you sure that Gmail 2.0.6 works on 5.0.0.238?

This has been my only gripe since the first 5.0 leak, how did you get yours to work? any tricks? Thanks.

The gmail app that I'm using on my device works. Not sure if you could see it in the listing, no tricks, just installed it.

[IFC]Area51 and maxdecimus, as you can both see in one of the images within my article, the Gmail application is listed in the Third Party apps list. It works for me, and I have all my 4 accounts configured and working. I get e-mails and am notified when e-mails come in. However, I have attached a few images I just took from my BlackBerry 5.0.0.238 with Gmail app working. Hope you take my word for it. I would not say its working if it wasn't.

I believe your BBM5 won't work with OS 5.0 (at least it didn't when I had 238 installed), so you can download BBM 4.7 via OTA. I don't have the link off hand but it's pretty easy to find.

Hi avocado, thanks for reading my article, it was recently updated.

I'm surprised to hear that you have BBM5 running because as you might have read I could not get it working. Downgrading, I would suggest that you connect to you DM and then remove the BBM5, reboot the device and then add back the BBM that came with the 5.0.0.238. I did not have to worry about loosing my contacts, once I installed the 4.7 all my contacts came back. I would recommend however that you backup just in case anyway.

Also note that if you have a lot of contacts, you can actually type the first letter of the contact that you're looking for and the app will filter accordingly, likewise for googletalk and any other of the I'm clients. I would also recommend creating groups and place your contacts in them as well to reduce your scrolling.

Here's a link that might get you 4.7 as well. The download link is on the page http://bbhybrids.net/forum/downloads.php?do=file&id=42

Thanks, hope I answered your questions.

Great report, I upgraded mine to this yesterday and have lost Internet Browser. I have tried pushing the service books and redoing the enterprise activation but still not getting it. My options are My companies internet browser, Hotspot Browser and Media Net. Any thoughts or ideas are welcome. I have checked with other people that have Blackberries here and they haven't lost there internet browser. I also checked with the BES admin and they haven't taken any access to that away.
