Default OS6 and the Spinning cirlcle

Please Login to Remove!

Since upgrading to OS6 on my 9700 I get the spinning circle frequently and it is getting to be very annoying. Has anyone else experienced this? Is there a fix? Can I roll back to the last version of OS5?

I am generally quite happy with the new OS but the loss of native memory coupled with the spinning cirlce more than canceles out the wow factor of OS6.

This may not be related to OS6 but I have also starting having trouble with the letter 's'....

You can certainly downgrade: How do I downgrade the OS on my BlackBerry? - BlackBerryFAQ. The latest version of OS5 is here: Latest OS: 9700 (East Asia + English). Be aware that you can re-install OS6 sizing it down to save memory and cut down on those spinning circles. The tool of choice to do that is BB Boss OS Shrinker. You can see a tutorial on how to do that here: YouTube - ‪How to Shrink a blackberry os‬‏.

Good luck and let us know how you make out.
