After trying the latest release of OS6 for a few days, I'm going back to OS5!

Could you share your experiences which led to that decision? I would be interested in hearing.

Well I changed from os 6.0.0.461 to this one because even though it gave me excellent battery life (1 1/2 to 2 days) at first soon it started giving me very very less I had to start charging even 7-8 hrs.the other thing i noticed was the camera after 4-5 pictures it would go mad like turn into large pink pixels.I have been running the os 6 for a month now and I must say it slowly eats the mobile phone.I am glad I am back to os 5 nothing like it.

I am considering going back to OS5 too. I have been having problems with OS6 on my 9700, sometimes getting locked and wont turn on, and also problem with battery, the battery meter would show %10-%15, and then suddenly phone would shut down. I cannot afford this when I am traveling and when my phone would be my only means of communication in a foreign country.

I am going back down to OS5.

I have tried to withstand the flaws on beta 6 on my Bold waiting for a formal release, but today I'm going back to v5

My main reason hasn't to do with battery life, but with the gosh editing cursor, and the shift (select) workaround. I just can't continue to sacrifice productivity against this glitch.

So welcome back to the good-old-painless days !

me too going back to OS5 now. Battery life with OS6 sucks also my phone seems to have issues finding the network and connection to our BES server. With OS5 I didn't have this.

Giving this one a try... hope it fixes the numerous glitches I had on T-Mobile's final 5.0 release for the 9700.

Okay, very confused now.... even though I downloaded 5.0.0.1655 & ran apploader from within the right folder, it installed 6.0!

Guess I need to delete that and redo the whole process.
