    Definitely give the 4.6 Beta Discussion thread a read... I'm running .210 and it's been great so far. You'll probably want to read up on battery saving tips too =)

    Congrats on the Bold... you'll LOVE it!

    I also would suggest .210 to start with. You will notice a major improvement in browser speed. Its already been said , you should definitely read the beta OS thread. ~via Bold~

    234 is out and is a good solid os.
    I would definatly update.
    As for the browser it is better in
    later verions but still lacks in
    some areas. I use a combo of bb
    browser, opera mini which is
    much faster, and bolt. For the
    BB browser use the wap sites
    whenever possible.

    if the os you install is not officially released by your carrier it does void your warranty. now wether warranty exchange actually looks at your os when swapping is a whole nother story. lol. but in any case if you start having an issue with a non offical beta os you can always go back to your original version

    I don't have the direct link handy, but if you go to www.berryreview.com and filter for Bold 9000 stories, it's in there. A link to megaupload or something.

    Also you can try changing the browser setting for a better experience.
    From any open browser press the blackberry buttion and select options. Goto browser conig and set the font size to 10 and view to columb.
    Makes a huge difference.
