New to Bold
Used a Pearl for 2 yrs & went to the BOLD. NICE... Now... set ups...?
Its running .167 should I upgrade upgrade to ??? Also when viewing any sites like PinStack do I always have to magnify the site? Its not all that fast in online search/loading... Any good directions are appreciated!
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!

Excellent Choice, ya gonna Luv it! and I concur it would be wise to upgrade your OS to .210
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~
Don't mean to hi jack your thread, but will installing a new OS void your factory warranty?~via smartphone~
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
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
Where do I get a link for the .210 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.
iPhone 4 (AT&T)
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.
i am using .216 with no problems full day of usage talk, txt, email, camera with flash. i was at 50% at 11pm at night. started using the phone at 9am.
Welcome to using the bold! The bold for me has been a great experience .. I am running 4.6 out the box firmware.. And the battery life is great... Lasts me a nearly 2 days.
