My original verizon BB 8703e, stopped when it got damp finally. I forget which OS was on it, not very recent, and NOT 4.2.xx
The "replacement" i bought used, but nearly brand new looking, off a verizon network. Its OS was OLDER than whatever else i used to have, didnt have maps, couldnt do yahoo GO, no BB messenger etc.
Updated it, 40 minutes later, it has OS 188.8.131.52x now, it looks VERY similar to my g/f blackberry curve phone thats 6 months old.
Problem is, the menus are damn slow! I mean i hit the rollerwheel to "ignore" a call and it answers it has such a bad delay.
same goes for dialing numbers, phone book info, options, menu scrolling and just hitting the side button to change from vibrate to loud or silent takes literally 1-2 seconds after i hit the button. Its driving me nuts.
Is there something i did wrong or another update? its 2-3x slower now with this OS than when i got it or my old BB.
