    Just my 2 cents....

    Advertisement



    I have tried the Italian OS and believe it's a waste of time. Speaking only from my personal and recent experience, my Pearl no longer charged properly - I had it on the charger for over 12 hours and the charging light kept flashing away. I also didn't notice any significant speed increases. It's also a pain to have to revert back to the ZEN list view, if you prefer it. If you're debating whether or not to get this OS, I wouldn't bother. At least not with T-Mobile USA.

    I actually like it better because of the mobile view for web browsing and the improved sure type. Also the auto dim feature back was a big plus. Only fault I am experiencing is my camera lags now after taking a pic.

    Somebody mentioned about a mouse type movement on screen that you control with the trackball.

    Is this not available ?

    I can find it anywhere after doing the upgrade.

    Thanks

    ~via BB (wap.pinstack.com)~ My Pearl had problems too when I first installed the upgrade. In fact it shut down. But I was up until 5 am CST getting everything reinstalled. I do love the faster response from my BB. SureType now reminds me of T9 on my other phones. Surfing the web is much faster. I like the autodim and all new features of this OS but I hear there is an even newer OS, .71 or .73.

    I went back also terrapin. The cons out weighed the pros. The whole jivetalk issue drive me crazy with the itailian OS. I like being connected 24/7 and being able to send and receive MMS. But that's just me.

    @Steve just hit the menu button while browsing and go to the desktop view option.

    I think it is great I did have one issue with connecting to make a phone call, a battery pull resolved this, I notice no lag in the camera or anywhere else I love it!

    the italy OS is so much better, I agree with the "pros" posted above. I really don't use IM so it doesn't bother me that it doesn't work with it but oh well. untill something really bothers me I'll keep this new OS. Until then .66 ftw

    Re: Just my 2 cents....

    Mine seems to be running like a champ with the new OS. I like the new ZEN theme and I havent had issues with the jivetalk. My phone runs faster and I like the new suretype. I would also like to note that I do not use my phone to watch video so I havent exsperienced the video problems that a lot of people have.
