    You should be fine, worked great on mine and 6 other VZW Pearls I know of... just go into email settings and re-send the service books. Also go to Options/Advanced/Host Routing Table, right click on any of the entries and select Register Now. Should be all set after this... let us know.

    ps. This OS is 5x releases newer than the stock VZW v60. It's MUCH leaner on memory and cleans up the code for most of the individual apps. Nothing but good feedback aside from varying opinions on changes made to vid framerates...

    So I downgraded and all worked fine. With your advice I decided to upgrade again and strangely enough it worked this time around with no additional steps. Go figure?

    Thanks though for the help and motiviating me to try again

    I did the upgrade on my VZW 8130 (from the Alltel OS) and the lags are definitely gone, but I think there are two issues: (1) no longer a choice of font size 6 on the screen/keyboard menu, (2) BBWeather now scrolls right to left to show the whole screen (it used to fit). Not sure about the first issue, but I swear fonts appeared smaller (or I had a choice for Font Size 6).

    personally, I don't believe that these are real updates.
    I have .81 installed and I don't have any lags. I did not have any memory leakage with original Verizon .60, nor have it now with Altell .81
    The only reason for me to upgrade was making more space for OS and extra apps.

    Picture above shows (probably) different message separator settings: lines or stripes or nothing

    if you take OS ind install it several times, you may loose/gain some options which is caused only by small variations during installation routine.
    best example is the above call loss/gain.

    some small customizations to make is specific for Altell, Verizon or something else that is probably all.

    Post Latest 8130 OS: US Cellular 4.3.0.97/4.3.0.170

    Some of the things that have changed with the new OS are:

    Pros:

    Faster load for text and email messaging
    New look to text inbox (almost un-noticeable)
    MORE MEMORY (about 500kb more free memory) which is good


    Cons:

    Looks like you loose the 6pt font
    If anyone uses BBWeather it has a hard time fitting on the screen (lack of smaller font) which makes it so you have to scroll to see entire page.



    Have fun I hope this fixes some of the issues that people have been having. Looks to also get rid of some of the memory leaking that I know some of the other updates also touched on.

    Re: 8130 New OS 4.3.0.170

    The link doesn't work. Who's the provider?

    I have a script that scans all RIM sites, and the latest OS I'm finding for the 8310 is 4.2.2.184 (in Singapore and Indonesia).

    I changed the Links.....Sorry dont know what happened the first time. The Update is for US Cellular. I try only to post local updates because not all the OS updates have Multi Language support.


    Once again sorry about the link issue. Should be fixed now though.

    scroll to first post if you're having trouble with links - it's the same update.

    although you do lose 6pt in system options, applications can still access this as an option.
    EG: EMV Pro still has 6pt available... might be a good idea to give the devs at BBWeather a heads up?


    broch - yes these are real updates, look through some previous threads and you find that, beyond a multitude of fixes, RIM introduced new features in recent builds that were previously unavailable...


    dvst8ion - thx for changelog...

    Re: Latest 8130 OS from U.S. Cellular 4.3.0.97/4.3.0.170

    well based on description:
    there is nothing in .97 that would distinguish it from .81
    no memory leaks ( 4 days and lost ~300kb)
    no specific feature absent in .81 but present in .97

    no RIM changelog, this seems to be quite important?

    I am willing to try the update, but can someone tell me what is the real difference in the functionality between .81 and .97?

    except lost font size?

    More memory: I cleaned OS so now I am hovering between ~24.5MB (added DosHawk, Empower Mail Viewer),
    I don't have (never had) 30 sec stalls on video, messages load instantly. Mentioned new look can be achieved through specific options.

    broch: Ill try and get you a breakdown of the differences this week sometime. I have 2 8130's so I'll run a couple different OS's and see what else I can figure out for you.

    On another forum, I saw someone saying their volume was lower (for ringtones, etc.) with this new update (compared to the Alltel OS). Anyone experienced this?

    Re: Latest 8130 OS from U.S. Cellular 4.3.0.97/4.3.0.170

    I'm here to tell you that the volume is just fine, the camera resolutions are fine, and this update is just fine. As long as you correctly install the update, everything will work out. You can always downgrade if you don't like it. The immediate difference I saw was the font size, but I changed it back. Its really hard to tell the differences since they are so suttle. The video player defaults to full screen now which is nice. Just do it!

    I had an install issue with Berry a code on my BB, but once I deleted it, everything worked fine. 3rd party software hitches are expected in every type of OS.

    I already did (a couple of weeks ago, I think). But I am going to update the OS in a couple of 8130's in the next week or two for clients and I didn't want to be the cause of a reduction in phone volume.
