Can't see any differences. The one glaring bug in which you can't unlock the phone using the menu (says you can but you're stuck using *-talk) is still not fixed. We'll see if any of the occasional random crashes/freezes still occur.

Also had the usual upgrade problem that today themes aren't showing upcoming apointments. All upcoming appopintments are not able to be edited, doing so makes a duplicate show up in the calendar (that is then shown on the today screen)

Has anyone installed this on a Sprint 8830? Does the GPS/roaming/etc still work ok?

No reason for it to disable GPS - especially considering that Telus does not block any GPS access for its clients.

The GPS is working fine on my Sprint 8830. Can't speak to the browser issue because I didn't have it in the first place.

Browser issue is still present in this version. I was browsing and had the signal drop then the bars came back with no letters. I had to toggle the connection to get it to reconnect.
Bummer.

Has anyone noticed if the memory leak is still there? That is really the only issue I have with the software.

It bit me again last week when I forgot to take out my battery for 5 or 6 days. Then memory went to zero and it deleted my sms and many emails plus my call log.

Pull and replace the battery and back to 10 MB. That is irritating.
