Default Re: 4.0?????

A) how did you get it...
I doubt anyone is providing a source within such a forum. I can tell those whom are running 4.0 either work for/with RIM, develop or beta test.
B) does it have alot of buggs!!
Those whom I've heard using/testing 4.0.0.100 say the bugs at this point are minor and its just teaking at this point before final release.
C) has there been a move for the release date....?
Should be this fall.
D) why would my data support lie to me???
Probably because their trying to play a better poker hand then the public. Considering it's Rogers getting a straight answer or the same answer from anyone is a task in it's own right.
E) if you really have it.........CAN I HAVE IT TOO pls!!!!!!!
Sorry can't help you there... this link may be of use: http://www.blackberryclub.com/viewtopic.php?t=59

To answer:

A) A birdy gave it to me
B) Not a lot of bugs actually, I've used it for 2 weeks now and haven't noticed any
C) Not sure on a release date
D) It's supports job, make 15+ USD an hour, blow people off on the phone so they can get back to cubicle football

E) I do really have it, but I can't give it to anyone, maybe someone else can help *shrugs* sorry bro.

It is a nice upgrade to my old 3.7, once they release 4.0 for bwc, it'll be even better I'm sure.

Well, they have upgraded something, as BWC (or even non BWC (such as redirector)) users can now get IPPP....

I think many who have it or have gotten it are under the honor system to not pass it along. There are ways to secure it but you'll have to be a good forum user to grab it.

Well, I can tell you if I didn't have 3 year old twins I might be able to get to fifty quicker. However, I gues this another test of my patience.

It's a useful board, helpful and informative. You'll hit 50 before you realize!

This forum is only 3 almost 4 weeks old and look how much it's grown...

it's only going to get bigger.. wait until the charm is released and the number of subscribers increases.. places like this are going to take off!

I'm hearing good things about the number of subscribers RIM is anticipating in the next year or so.. they are hiring lots as a result too..

Either way, other forums treated the blackberry as if it was a sideshow to the other devices, this is a very dedicated crowd promoting only the berry.

kudos to the admins, keep up the good work.

Default I agree

Glad I found this, not only can we learn better ways to utilize the product, but have a first-hand glance and up and coming technology as well.

I can also tell you that Nextel is looking at BB as heavily(if not more) than normal handset sales.

That doesn't surprise me one bit. Cell coverage is great, email is incredible. I just wish I had a speakerphone on my 7230. I'll wait a little while and upgrade when I've worn this one out.

The way the other boards treat the BB reminds me of the early days of DVD's. You could walk into a Blockbuster and they would have one row of DVD's. Now, you can't find the VHS's.

Some people are just to slow to accept new tech, just like the folk in the 1400's. The world is Flat!!!!!

Glad I found this too. I'm a future 7100t owner and can't wait to learn more and become an active participant here.

I was wondering if anyone can tell me the difference between 3.8 and 4.0. I have heard that 3.8 is a lite version of 4.0, but I don't know what features are missing. Thanks for your help..
