Uninstall BB App World and then re-download it again. See if that doesn't help.

Is anyone else getting lousy wifi performance on this version?

It seems generally slow and unresponsive for me. Also, UMA call quality has been poor since the upgrade. Could UMA be due to this not being a tmo os?

I think i may hop on the latest os6 beta soon but i was just curious.

Anyone have any idea why the voice activated search on Google maps no longer works with this OS? Worked fine for me before i upgraded.
Thanks.

When I first bought my BB 9700 2 months ago it had Japanese language input. However, when I upgraded, that ability was lost.

I was able to upgrade to 5.0.0.1014 (bundle 1655, Platform 5.1.0.177) but still can't input Japanese text. I tried to upgrade to 6.0 but so far have not been able to do it.

I am running Windows XP, have tried several times... What do I gotta do? Downgrade? Someone help please, I'm in information overload by perusing the site lol.

I am in Japan on Docomo

I upgraded from 5.0.0.7-hundred-something ...everything still works nicely except that in the media player there is a now noticeable delay between pressing the side volume buttons and the volume indicator appearing on screen.

Were you having any problems with anything in the last OS before you upgraded? If not then you were probably better off staying where you were. If this really bothers you can downgrade back to your previous version.

I was getting the "Error starting <Application>: Error loading module '<App Module>' VerifyError" error message with increasing frequency when downloading new apps or upgrading old ones. The only way to fix that seemed to wipe and reload the OS, and so I thought "why not upgrade the OS?"

The lag is not a big deal to me, just an observation on this OS version's behavior. I think I remember reading other people having the same problem with other recent OS updates.

Ok. Then upgrading was a smart thing to do. Not sure about the lag issue, but maybe someone else will jump in.

Angry New Member. Need Help Choosing between .979 and .1014

Hi.

I am a newbie to BB comparitively and new to this forum as well. Thanks in advance for all the help and support and efforts.

Bold 9700 - Currently on the DOCOMO Firmware 5.0.0.1014. Have a few questions though. Please Help

1) Why is this OS considered official if its present on a Carrier's website but not on the official BlackBerry website where they have all continents' carriers listed?

2) I had used .979 also and upgraded to .1014. But I have experienced issues with it - data leak and it is running my bill high and hence bothering me.

3) I learned from the official website that when the letter "J" is present at the beginning of the firmware name (e.g. 9700jEastAsia.. etc) it takes up an additional of approx. 5 MB space irrespective of whether you choose Japanese input or not. So is there a non "J" version of 5.0.0.1014?

4) Lastly can anyone advise me between .979 and .1014? I did not have any noticeable issues on .979. But since I moved to .1014 I've had data leaks. I only use my 9700 for e-mail and only add-on / third party apps are one THEME From app world and Google Talk & Yahoo Messenger. That's it. So for my use, does .1014 have a significant benefit, else I might just go back to .979

also.. since officially OS 6 has been released for Bold 9700; does that mean they will or have stopped releasing updates for OS 5? Will there be no official release for OS 5 after this DOCOMO 5.0.0.1014?

Thank you
God Bless

Have you checked your phone settings to make sure their set correctly? You can get to them through the sound profile at the bottom under "Set Ring Tones/Alerts.

Glad to hear it's working. The upgrade is for any carrier, but make sure to follow the instructions at the top of the forum exactly.

The latest version has been out for going on a couple months now (wonder if there will be any future versions of OS5??). Keep in mind you don't hear from all the users who don't have a problem, and the ones you do hear from you don't know what they have on their phone that might be causing an issue. It's never a black and white issue as to what's the best OS version as it can definitely vary for each user and their particular setup.
