    i have the bold in hands.. and i may not have an active pin. email and bbm. but i see the problem and it was confirmed to me by a rim rep i spent a half hour on the phone with begging to turn my pin on lol.... as much as we all want this device.. out and in everyones hands. rim is a company aiming at a perfect product. not a perfect disaster. every single person of the 100 sillys that waited inline for the iphone 3g for 4-12 hours is complaining about them.. hating them. wanting to return them.. and the reason is.. because apple rushed them out the door. they set a date in stone and pushed them out the door.. like mobile me.. and look now.. 1000s of iphone users are complaining.. while rim sits back and laughs at this... they will wait.. the brint of rims buisness is in the usa. they want to demolish the market come september october november with the releases of the bold, jvelin, kickstart. and they are playing chess not checkers. wisely with no time watch.. lol..

    when its in lower case edge and i try to browse. i get an hour glass.. that doesnt go away untill i exit.. but when its in 3G im browsing at the speed of light. there is not in between. its a known problem as explained to be by the rim rep i spoke to. its a software issue for battery conservation.

    Well nice attempt at a feature for RIM, lol. So I guess the last task is being to START browsing in 2G but being able to seamlessly switch to 3G and back according to battery and coverage status...? That's what it looks like to me, I could be wrong. Not a signal problem.

    when you lock the phone well mine anyway.. goes into edge to conserve battery. but the final spec will go into EDGE then when using data if there is 3g signal available it will automatically go into 3G seamlessly. with my blue tooth on during a conversation. i can surf the web with 3G while talking on the phone... no wi-fi while doing this.. its beautifull.. even before i was going through my viigo news while on a conf. call via blue tooth.. all around its great. and apparently the final os release for att was released today.. so if it was and this problem is fixed we have ourselves a bar none breatest smart phone ive ever seen used or heard of

    the issue. when you have it on factory default its 2g and 3g.. now the problem i have on my bold is its either 3G or edge. not 3G or EDGE. meaning the its not holding a full EDGE signal. its staying lower case. now if this is perfected as its supposed to work. its great. while its in your case or in sleep mode it can stay on 2g but while your surfing the internate downlowding attachment or any data stuff it would automatically switch to 3g. thus saving battery life. weird to explain hope ya get what im saying.

    Do NOT count on 2-4 weeks after today. On Aug 11th all filed testers for AT&T had to submit thier initial reviews. The NEXT day, they had to exchange their old models for new models. This says it's a hardware issue and nothing that can be fixed by a different OS. So this is on RIM's end and NOT AT&T. We are looking at a Halloween timeframe for the Bold on AT&T.


    Edit: And the OTA upgrades aren't going to be for an entire OS. It's going to be used for certain module upgrades like browser, etc.

    IMHO, that would be the best move if you can live without 3G.
