    I've only made/received a few calls on .168. Not enough to judge battery drain in that aspect, but I have been surfin' and emailin' and textin' nearly continously since taking it off the charging cradle and I'd swear the battery meter is stuck or broken. That's how much its moved. But word wrap in text boxes is non-existant, its broken.

    I've had .168 for a few weeks now and I haven't had any problems. Battery life has be average to above average compared to .133. For me, things seem to load quicker.

    For which model because according to your profile you have a 8320 which doesn't support a 4.6 OS yet.

    If it helps the latest OS versions are here.

    Can't prove anything, interesting though it's not declared official yet even though the download comes from an official A1 update site (for A1 customers only).

    Anyways, after running it for a few days I have to say that my battery life was better on .152

    Same thing happened to me, Either call T-Mobile CS and have them refresh it or log on to my.t-mobile.com and goto manage myfaves, on the left you will see a link that says Myfaves is Missing, Click that, To the right you can refresh your myfaves

    You still have access to the benefits of the my faves program, you don't NEED the app on your phone.

    Have you done a battery pull?

    you can also resend your service books: Settings Folder> Options> Advanced options> Host Routing Table> Menu button (blackberry symbol), Register Now

    I have gone to tmobiles website and tried to resend myfaves to my bb that way. U have refreshed them from my bb and that didn't work. I pulled the battery and I sent servive books via the options menu and housting routing section, the email site and using the fast reset.
    I still don't have the myfaves or the little icon next to their names.
    I reallty just want to make sure I am not being charged when I call those peeps.

    Question Problems backing up on .168

    Hey all.

    Ok, new issue: I just tried to Backup my device since I haven't done it for a bit. I load up the DM, and start the backup process...

    Errors out on "Secure Email Decision Maker" database and cannot continue the backup. Anyone know what's going on?

    Also, since updating to .168, DM says there is a new update for me now and wants to upgrade my device. Not sure if it's a legit Rogers one, but should I do it? DM doesn't show me which version it's installing, so I'm not sure.

    Thanks for your help in advance.
    My Smartphone History - 7130e -> 8130 Pearl -> 8330 Curve -> iPhone 3G -> Javelin(Curve 8900)

    Well you can go in the Advanced Options and delete that corrupt database and then try to back up.

    As for the updating the device...

    What DM did you install? There's an issue with the later versions and the automatic updater.

    1. Go to Control Panel >Add/Remove Programs.
    2. Click on "BlackBerry Desktop Software" and select "Change/Remove."
    3. When prompted, hit "Next" and then you should get options for Modify, Repair, or Remove. Choose "Modify."
    4. On DM 4.7 and higher, in the list of installed items, you should see "BlackBerry Automatic Update." Click the icon next to it and change it to "This feature will not be available." That should put an "X" next to "BlackBerry Automatic Update." If you are using DM 4.6 or lower and don't see this option in this list then just continue with the install and the installation will ask you a few screens later. A screen will be shown where you will be asked to check the boxes for:

    A) "Start BlackBerry Desktop Manager automatically each time the computer starts."
    B) "Create a shortcut for BlackBerry Desktop Manager on the Windows Desktop."
    C) "Check for software updates."

    Be sure number 3, "Check for software updates," is NOT checked.

    5. Finish the installation.


    hope that helps.
