Great ideas, it did cross my mind! Thus far things are working just fine with OS6

What are the limitations with OS 6?
I've heard some things aren't fully capable with it as yet. Is it a beta version?
I just got my hands on another one so instead of selling it, Im going to finally put my Storm to rest

installed OS6 from essar. works great! great layout! though i had a hard time figuring out how to disable "dial from homescreen", so i just reloaded from a backup and now its disabled. though i still cant see how to enable it again. anybody knows how?
i am now checking if all my apps are working and so far, only yahoo messenger doesn't work. it says "uncaught exception: java.lang.NullPointerException" when i try to open YM. anybody knows how to fix this?

I have installed 184.108.40.2060. What's the difference between what I have and 220.127.116.118?
It may be too early to tell!

I installed .448 last night. I had been experiencing serious memory leakage with .380 and had to do multiple battery pulls in a day. Glad to report that after 24 hours I’ve experienced minimum memory loss and have not had to pull battery all day.

I dislike BlackBerry's for the leaked memory issue. Not sure why they can't put an end to it. I just ran the Quickpull application and I went from 9.99mb of memory to 76.54mb of memory. So sad. I restart my device once or twice a day. I may have to try 18.104.22.1688 it seems

That's crazy, smooth. I don't remember any serious leakage with the 9700 and with my Torch, there's little if any leakage at all.

Is anyone noticing significantly smoother switching between UMA and 3G on OS6 - less dropped calls? A T-Mobile rep admitted to me that there is a known issue with some 9700's dropping calls and being unable to transition smoothly...and mine is one that just isn't a winner apparently. I travel quite a bit, and I notice it happening in Milwaukee and Miami primarily, but it happens everywhere...
I am working to figure out what my next steps should be with T-Mob, and on my own. So would just love a little feedback. : )
Happy Valentine's Weekend!

I haven't had any problem that you describe with the latest .448 build and im on t-moble with a 9700 but i don't switch from uma to 3g just 3g to EDGE which transitions smoothly

i'm downloading it right now. has any noticed if the battery drain problem was fixed with this version? it an official so i would only hope so. lol

The 22.214.171.1240 version had serious memory leakage. Maybe Roger you meant os5, because that software didn't have a major memory leak at all.
Ej there is no battery drain or memory leakage issue with 126.96.36.1998. I love it!

Again - anyone noticing any UMA to 3G switching issues with any version software on their 9700, or more smooth transition on OS6?
