My bold is weird, apparently...
I am going to upgrade my OS tonight OTA via AT&T, because "it seems like the right thing to do," But my Bold must be weird. I have had it turned on and running opera mini, the BB browser, berryweather, facebook, tweetgenius continuously in addition to the sporadic camera use or other app I occasionally use. I keep hearing about the Bold needing at least 12 Meg of free memory to run well. But mine currently is at 3 meg, and I have absolutely no problems at all. I do get the occasional hourglass when a page tries to load in a browser and we're looking for "loading scripts"...
I'm just afraid that the upgrade will leave me wanting my "old Bold" back. My wife has a bold as well and if all goes well with my upgrade, we'll do hers soon, too.
Oh well, just typing to get it out...

I wouldn't recommend upgrading the OS OTA. If you lose your connection, there is a chance your Blackberry will be bricked.
If you decide to upgrade, it would be best to download the new OS on your PC and use the apploader to install it.--Laura Knotek (formerly known as lak611)

Deciding to upgrade may depend on what OS you're currently using. I don't think there are a lot of differences between .282. .292 and .297, so probably not worth upgrading if you're in that neighbourhood and doing really well. But if you're back on the original OS, you may be able to do what you're doing now and have even more available memory.
No way to know for sure. Just a thought.
