    Call Quality with TIM OS

    Advertisement



    I have two Pearls: one with the TIM/Telstra OS and the other with the Rogers OS. The Rogers OS does feel more stable and solid but I have noticed one big difference and thats in call quality. Voices in the TIM OS sound tinnier and break up whereas I don't have that problem with the Rogers. I just got a call on the TIM Pearl and after experiencing this problem I called that person on the Rogers Pearl and the difference was perceptable. How many of you have experienced this when you upgraded from the TIM OS to the Rogers OS and is there anything I can do to improve call quality short of upgrading to the Rogers OS on my other Pearl?
    Your input, fellow Stackers will be much appreciated!

    the bugs in the TIM OS are well documented on this forum. sounds like you'll need to upgrade to the RogersOS. which i, personally, think is a piece of crapadoodle. it's caused nothing but probs on my TMO Pearl.

    No offense to all of these brave explorers out there but after reading all of the complaints I beleive I am satisfied to stick with 4.2.0.64 for now.

    Yeah guys I was afraid I'll have to do that. Gary, I got this Pearl from Tmo and it originally had the 4.2.0.64 OS on it. I was just fed up with how slow it was and the call lag i.e it took the party on the other end a few seconds to hear my voice after I answered. Actually I am the most satisfied with the Rogers OS on my other Pearl but was avoiding spending a few hours on wiping and installing the Rogers OS on this Pearl.
    Oh well, what can you do? I'll let you guys know how it goes with this upgrade.

    YOu might try Cingulaers .73 that is what I use on my TMO BB and I love it. It is faster the .64 and has none of the phone issues of .2.66 or .94

    Re: Call Quality with TIM OS

    I had to go to the 4.2.1.xx OS' because multiPlayer would not work on the 4.2.0.xx OS. I had upgraded the TMo 64 to the Cingular 73 but had to then upgrade to the TIM/Telstra 4.2.1.66 OS in ordr to use the multiPlayer. I have no other complaints with the TIM OS except for the call quality and I don't even have that complaint with the Rogers OS. Both of them are nifty and fast to boot!
