    This is my original review/recap of OS 5.0:


    Ok I have been running 5.0 for about almost 3 hours now and here are my findings:

    -Word Wrap fixed!!!!!!!
    -Slight battery life increase
    -A lot snappier in menu's and program loading
    -Obvious new boot screen(blackberry symbol and name as well as a loading bar)
    -Most apps still work(Facebook gone and Viigo gave error)
    -Reset all custom sound settings
    -Myfaves display is gone and when try to refresh it I get a bunch of weird sms that's are all weird characters
    -Brower speed and loading much improved
    -The sound that blipped for a second when changing songs in media player is gone.
    -Videos seem to load faster
    -Boot up speed a bit quicker
    -Scrolling around in brower much improved
    -Finally able to set up personal sms ringtones for contacts(missed this sooooo much as I had it when I had my storm)
    -BBM now shows status message at top and nice signal meter and time. Also adds spaces between contacts in list and makes everything a bit bigger(not fond of this but will get used to it)
    -Sounds seem much smoother
    -Signal is nice and strong and quick WIFI pickup.
    -Can now scroll through open pictures like you can on the storm

    This OS is a true BETA since in every menu you can submit feedback where as other leaks don't have that. Biggest way to sum up this OS is to say it brings you all the great little things that the storm has. I have not had problems with calendar or anything other than myfaves and 2 apps which aren't a big deal and I will take all the improvements I have gained and deal with the small things. The only reason I used the myfaves display is to be able to tell when my gf texts me and now that she has her own ringtone for sms I don't need the display. I am in love with 5.0 and can't wait for another 5.0 release to possibly fix these few problems. Also 1 thing gained was Visual Voicemail app built in but doesn't do anything so I would assume its there to connect to the carriers visual voicemail server and work with it but its dead for me right now since t-mobile doesn't offer that. I will not be downgrading as I am dealing with the small things and loving the new features and look forward to more

    I'm using the 5.0 and I really like it. I do have a question about BBM. When your chatting with someone, I noticed that the line is gone that seperates the conversation from where I type my message. It should be separate according to the screenshots that I've seen. The separation line is there for yahoo, aim and gtalk though. Has anyone else had this issue?

    Hey anyone having issues with their call log? I'm on 4.6.1.206 and I can't figure it out I've lost the icons and standard view... all i get is this.



    I've tried restoring the logs and still no go. I did wipe and basically start fresh and had it back, but I rebooted and it reverted back to the pic above. UGH

    Anyone else having this issue?


    EDIT: NEVERMIND...some how my BB decided to keep switching my call log view on me. Weird

    I have 5.0.0.90
    Is this the latest version that is out?
    And if not, is there another version with any fixes for facebook? I really miss that app, though not enough to downgrade as 5.0 really has improved my opinions of the OS. I really love it. My favorite part, as hotcelica said, is the ability to set sms tones for each contact. For that feature alone, I do not want to downgrade.

    I agree obione. Even though a few apps don't work, it's worth giving it a try to me. I'm really liking it so far. I'm looking forward to future releases and improvements.
