    Hi all

    I have a huge problem with droped calls on the TIM 1.66 that required me to do a battery pull to unfreeze my pearl. Then I downgraded back to .73 for a while now I am using Rogers 1.94 and still expirence dropped calls but at least I can end them without the battery pull. I am gonna try this AT&T and see how it works.

    By the way my carrier is T-MO and my original OS is what else but .64

    And on a side note I figured if you leave your memory as free as possible you dont have dropped calls as much but they do happen.

    Be back soon with findings.

    Re: New Pearl OS from AT&T 4.2.1.96

    Question for everyone. I guess i just noticed my trackball doesn't change colors when someone calls. I don't know if I've had the setting on for awhile. I turned it on, and it still doesn't blink. Is that this OS, or something else. I guess I never noticed if it has worked on this phone.

    My colour ball app still changes the colors, and I've done a battery pull...

    I just tried mine and I have the color app too and no blinking trackball when calls come in.

    Can't say I mind tho as I never noticed this before.

    Just my $.02

    Otherwise I like the upgrade and have noticed a bit of a difference in speed opening programs etc.

    Did you turn it on? Hit the talk button, then hit menu, go to options, general options, and change ringtone lighting to trackball...

    i would set aside about an hour just to be safe. from downloading the OS off the bb website to finishing install on the phone. then adjusting whatever settings didn't carry over from your restore.

    I had this same problem, though mine wouldn't scroll to the left. I ended up pushing the ball in and scrolling to the left at the same time and everything was back to normal. I think the rolling mechanism on the inside somehow got stuck disconnected from the ball. Pushing and rolling got it to move back.

    I've never had a dropped call issue on my Pearl, and I've run the original T-Mobile OS, the Cingular OS, the Rogers OS, and now I'm on the latest AT&T OS. Keeping my fingers crossed! (I do have the white Pearl, so I'm not sure if they made some kind of internal improvement there)
