Bring back the pop!

I know it sounds kind of minor, but I do a lot of OS leaks and security wipes, so I'd appreciate it. Think they will ever bring back the little pop sound during a reboot?

Best 4G PlayBook for AT&T USA User

Along with many of you here, I imagine, I am very excited for the "new PlayBook", to steal a phrase.

Discrepancy Between # of "Installed Apps" and Visible Icons

Has anyone else noticed this? Inside the main options, it says that I have 137 installed apps, but (even including built-in apps), I only have about 100. Hidden features waiting to be awakened?

Re: mac itunes to new playbook trouble please help

Consider using Wi-Fi file transfer, instead of wired. RIM and Apple products rarely get along well, but Wi-Fi is universal.

Re: Question about the Blackberry 9900

Re: personal hotspot feature on Bold 9900 ?

I have an unlocked 9930 running on AT&T (with OS 7.1). It prompts you for an APN but works like a dream after that (without a tethering plan).

Re: How painful is Edge on unlocked 9930

I have a 9930 on AT&T, which gets EDGE. It isn't bad. I'm coming from a 9810, which is H+, and it's obviously not that. It's acceptable, though. Feels a lot like 3G did on my 9800.

Once 6.0.0.534 came out, they have just been minor steps up in battery life and system performance. I would ensure you are there or "better". After that, enjoy your phone.
