    I'm still testing .282. I was on .247 before and I loved it.

    Ive sent 166 texts today, received around the same amount, phone was barely ever on standby, downloaded and installed 2 programs, and made about 10 minutes of calls. Im in my basement, and I get around the same signal. No bugs, no crashes, just speed and beauty. I'm currently at about 77% battery right now, and I unplugged at 10 AM. Everything seems to be a huge improvement, especially the ability to switch between 2G and 3G

    282 > 266 so far. Certainly good enough to leave it installed while I'm out of town for the next week.

    I prefer 282. Better memory management, Switch off 3G. Speed seems to be a little improved as well.

    I went from .266 and so far there is a HUGE differance. I installed last night, charged it all night with if fully powered off. I've had it on 2g all day but its on used 10% of the battery. I've used the internet a little bit on 2g and it seems almost as fast as 3g. So far I'm really impresed.

    .282 by far. .266 gave me so many problems that I went back to .247.

    .282 has been smooth since I updated. Being able to set my Bold to 2G has made it worth the update. Finally getting the long battery life I have come to expect from a Blackberry.

    I seem to like .247 the best. I tried .266, and .282; .266 was decent, and .282 I had bad signal strength. .247 just seems to work the best for me. I might not have given the other two a fair chance, but I'm happy with .247 for now.

    Was that on 2G or 3G I am rogers in a weak GSM spot so you think .247 would be better?

    I went from .266 to .282 been running it for 24 hours so its hard for me to say at this point which one is outright better. But to be honest. But if i had to pick one it would be .282 at this point it seemed to have given me a little better battery life, less memory leaks and the added function of being able to switch to either 2g or 3g. It's certainly not worse than .266 so thats a big plus as .266 was excellent for me.

    .282 ftw.

    I downloaded it twice. the first time I didn't take my time and do it properly and promptly downgraded to .266

    then I saw you could switch between 2g & 3g and decided to give it another try. took my time and did it properly...

    I used to run at around 41mb free after a battery pull. I was at 47mb after the battery pull and after 12 hours of heavy use I still have 50% battery. It's running on 2g no issues, I jumped on wifi when I needed to get on the net and it's been great.

    so far so good. I'll be using this one for a while.

    .282 is the best Bold OS yet, at least for me. .266 was previously the best I'd used, but .282 is a significant improvement. It's just as fast and stable as .266, and adds the ability to force the radio to 2G, a useful and long overdue feature (for us AT&T users at least). I was pleasantly surprised (shocked, rather) to find I had ~42 MB free memory after a battery pull, up from only ~21 MB on .266.

    Battery life appears to be solid, but I haven't tested it extensively. Signal strength appears about the same as on .266. I have noticed one problem with this version, however. The thumbnails for your pictures are slow to load, at least the first time you open the pictures viewer. I'm speculating here, but it seems as if this version isn't loading the thumbnails into RAM on bootup, but instead waits for you to open the pictures viewer. Regardless, it's a fairly minor bug, and I still enthusiastically recommend upgrading.

    Seen a few say this and I'm puzzled - I have .266 on Orange UK and under Manage Connections > Mobile Network Options I can select 3G, 2G or 3G & 2G - is this what is being talked about, or something different?

    AT&T crippled their phones forcing them to stay on 3G, whereas everyone else has been able to switch since release IE Rogers/Orange users.

    Not all carriers had this option enabled prior to 282. This is a new feature for those of us on AT&T.

    Wow thats a lot how did that happen i gained probably about 3 mb after the install of .282. Curious did you wipe your phone before the os upgrade or just upgraded. I just upgraded with wiping the memory clean. IDK if that has something to do with the hug jump in memory?
