No, the enterprise activation will not duplicate any data.

I installed it last night, and so far so good. Definitely an increase in memory. I am around 150mbs with all of my applications installed. I can't really comment on battery life at this point, because I haven't been running it long enough to determine. I am at 100% after almost two hours off the charger, 20-25 SMS, 20 minutes of browsing, and one quick phone call.

quick q, does multi-lang include east asian languages, specifically traditional chinese? I was able to get chinese working on my 8700c a million years ago but the 8700g I couldn't and since my 8900 will arrive tomorrow, does it support trad. chinese out of the box?

Looks to be working ok.
Had to wipe my BB after the first install. Should have followed directions more closely, I delete the device.xml not the vendor.xml .

Instructions are for wimps

So far so good. I've noticed a faster response time, more memory, better battery life and definately a better wifi connection..

Battery life is rock solid on this one. I had .199 before this and it sucked for battery life. I dont think i will upgrade again until there is an official Rogers release.

just installed it and some of my application icons are missing, but they show in the desktop manager. I.e. MSN, general message folder, facebook. My basic today theme isn't working either.


Edit:
Was able to fix it. I wiped the phone and restored my backup (i always do a backup before i install a new OS, first time I actually needed it).

all my programs, icons, and links are working now.

I also had to wipe the handheld to get it to work. That was a little weird, because with the other OS's I didn't do that.

Here are some fairly straightforward questions;

1. WHY do I have to come on to a Forum to find out how to upgrade my phone?
2. WHY doesn't the stupid thing just upgrade automatically?
3. WHY is the process so needlessly complicated?
4. WHY did my phone get a 'Fatal Error' when I tried to upgrade through the Desktop Software?
5. WHY is this possibly the worst customer support I have ever come across?
6. WHY should I not throw the bloody phone straight out of the window and go and get myself an i-phone?

Yours angrily!

Default Thanks

I converted to a HTC Touch Pro for the past 6 months thinking I want more freedom but couldn't handle the Windows Mobile OS and all it's baggage so I got myself a 8900...installed this latest software, it works like a charm, thanks for sharing.

RIM should post all these updates for everyone and easy to find, there should be an easier flow that takes user to a Carrier's latest tested and certified build and the most latest version available for the device. Also I agree with the last comment above, Why can't RIM make a small app on the device that uses connected computer's internet and finds new software for the device and installs (by downloading it on the PC in a temp folder etc and installing it then deleting the temp folder). Users shouldn't need to go through desktop manager and all the options.

Life would be a bit easier, I can find new software and install it using any PC anywhere without having to install DM.

updated last night and almost everything is okay.

the one thing that is odd, my manage email won't let me connect. it tells me my session has expired, to close and try again, which doesn't work, btw. not a huge thing because I can use my pc to resend service books and rearrange email addresses much easier, just the principle of the thing.

yes, the way I've found works easiest is to delete the calender service books for all but what your events are linked to. then they will be the default entries and will show on the today screen.

Seems to have broken Slacker on mine. I'll try reinstalling it and see what happens.

Is it just me? Everytime that I update the OS on the handheld, the Email Options/ Email Settings/ Download Images Automatically changes from No to Yes (without notification). And it always takes me a day or two to rediscover this.

I'm getting more spam because of this.... Grrrr.

This happened in the switch from 4.6.1.168 to 4.6.1.199. I haven't tested it for the latest .206 yet.
