Well, nothing much, other than the install went smoothly.

I've had problems with the Torch not rebooting and hanging after it does the backup and before it actually does the install. Worked fine...

The huge variation in battery life is perplexing.

I suspect software/network configuration issues are causing this. Some builds install in a way (on a particular device) that cause a lot of...

Yep, that's the one. It's annoying. The second reboot is very fast, so I don't know what the deal is with the fist one.

Other than that, everything working fine.

Does anyone else have a problem with the first reboot, after the files are backed up and before the new software is loaded? This is the second time the reboot hung.

I had to do a battery pull to...

Can you point me to the right KB article? I have this problem with .225.

Never mind. It's Article ID: KB24285. It has no resolution, and it's still there in .225.

Not happy. A Blackberry that...

I have downgraded to .161.

The battery life was bad with 214, and it lost it's ability to automatically shut the backlight off (after a night in bedside mode).

Need a replacement

Well, I'm eligible for my yearly upgrade on the 18th, so I'll get a Torch. It looks a little more exciting than the previous offereings - maybe it can even compete with the iPhone and Android.

Why...

I'm a QA guy, so I understand all about tradeoffs. At least it'll pass the battery life test!

I spent a day on 2G and after that the battery usage is better. Go figure.

Yeah, but it was livable with 4.6. With 5.0 I can't go the whole day without charging the battery.

Hmmm.

I switched to 2G only, and the battery drain has stopped!

So, is it the 3G transmitter is somehow, what, operating at a higher power or something? It's not getting hot like it has in the...

Well, the battery life isn't any better than .554.

What is it in 5.0.0.X that uses up so much battery? I could go all day with no worries on 4.6 - on the 5.0 builds I have to charge in the middle...

loaded

Okay, I've been on .610 for an hour or two. There is more memory on boot (25MB instead of 22MB for .554). Noting significant to report.

I had abandoned .592 because of memory and battery problems....

mobile banking works again!

So, I deleted the mobile banking app and reinstalled it, and then reactivated it through SunTrust, and it works again.

Go figure.

I liked the build quality on my Pearl, and the curve is even better.
