    im also debating wether i should sell my Bold and wait out with my flip until the 8900 or the 8910 releases on Rogers.
    Rogers just released the 8320 for UMA so it would make a LOT of sense to me that they would pass on the 8900 and only get the 8910 with 3G.
    Will let you know

    I for one am sold on the bold....having gone from the 8700 to the 8310 and now to the bold (with Rogers) I couldnt look back. Came with .162, upgraded immediately to .167 and then to .168 (just for the hell of it). Battery is lasting at least 2+ days with heavy surfing and general usage etc. No dropped calls, excellent call clarity, and did I say FAST....... I had been worried as you are, but when offered the upgrade I took the chance and am GLAD I DID!!! Just my 2 cents worth.....

    This sounds more like reality. I never get more than 10 hours on mine and I don't surf the web. Just email and phone. Messenger and MSN throughout the day.

    2 days? I wish

    Battery life definitely got better for me after I upgrade to .168

    I stand by my word...I used the battery to dead at least twice prior to re charge. I am not sure if wifi use makes a difference as I have wireless network at home...

    how do you do the upgrade? I have the new bold running 4.6.
    I am new to this, so simple explanations are good for me (ha - but true)

    Mine didnt last 2 days either, I am a heavy text and im person. I wish I could get that. That is the only con, other than that the device is great. I dont miss my curve 8310, the Bold is the best BB to date imho.

    WiFi would kill the battery even faster.

    I have WiFi and Bluetooth turned off unless I need to use it. Which is never.
