    I was looking at the same thing yesterday. I think T-Mo has the latest OS.

    I took a quick look and then I decided to keep the OS that came out of the box with Tmo (.330). If it ain't broke, don't fix it.

    Best out-of-the-box OS I've seen RIM release.. ever.

    Well the ATT model came with 5.0.0.296. And even at that, its running faster, smoother and longer than my previous beta set up on the 9000, so I will restrain myself a little while longer, as I've heard there are problems upgrading on an ATT anyway.

    I'm running .351 (free from any carrier) and I have no reason to change. Runs smoothly. Best OS from RIM -I've experienced so far !
    I say, let sleeping dogs lie! Pls don't disturb!

    Mine came from AT&T with 5.0.0.296. and it's working perfectly. For the limited usage I have planned for my 9700, this OS is just fine.

    I'm waiting to see the one that allows flash support. That's the BIG one. We'll see it here in beta first of course but I'm really anxious to see this feature available.

    anyone know if a new OS has addressed the contact alert issues where email and sms messages all have to have the same tone if you are using special tones for any contacts? if you dont use contact alerts the profiles still let you choose separate tones for everything but not when you go to contacts and choose anything special. Only one tone available for ALL message types

    Sorry I cannot provide the link as I did not capture it, however I have read that this is a known issue that RIM is working on. The other issue which is being addressed by them is the phone number problem with contacts who use mobile phones (who doesn't ?)

    Stick with your original OS and you will have no SMS problems like the ones who updated their OS.
