Had it for a couple of days. No problems since I got it, but I can't tell you specifically what has changed. There should also be new code for the 7100t.

After playing with it for a few days here are my thoughts...

Most everything is same old, same old. MAJOR improvements are the Calculator and I have noticed I no longer get fail to open tunnel errors. I use BBWeather and before I would always get an error after rebooting the device. I would go in to BBWeather to update and on the Forecast screen I would always get the error (just once). Now even after rebooting it cooks along and works like a charm!

I wish they would have addresses the low ring volume issue. Maybe add an extra high option..... The unit is running great with the new software and it is well worth the upgrade for the Calculator and the apparent fix for the 'tunnel error' problem....

I noticed the new snappiness also. Where as I like the new calc I hate it broke PD. Tough trying to decide if I should go back or not.

One feature I just noticed is under Date/Time, you can now choose where your BlackBerry gets the time from. Unfortunately, it doesn't seem to change the timezone, I'll see what happens the next time I'm out of town.

Maybe it's new for T-mobile's release, but I have a Cingular 7290 and mine has always shown the little phone when a call was missed.

On another note, anyone played around with the "BlackBerry Messenger" that's included in this release?

It might just be new for t-mo then because when I changed over from a 7100 to the 7290 that was the only thing I did not like about the 7290. After downloading the new software I was out washing my car, came in and noticed the little phone icon.... Yahoooooie....!!!

I did / do not see a BlackBerry Messenger with the new software...

It just seems like Cingular devices with the TMobile firmware have the BlackBerry Messenger. If you go to http://www.blackberry.com/messenger, it brings you to a beta site.
