6.0 Bundle 1879 to 6.0 Bundle 3049 ??
I received the Software Update notice on my Bold 9780 today (T Mobile); know nothing about it, so I came here and see a bunch of problems with this update. I am very happy with existing Bundle 1879, and "if it ain't broken, why fix it ?" so question to all is can I just leave 1879 and leave my Desktop Manager as is, or will I have to upgrade the Bold software and BlackBerry Desktop? What is this update about anyway? I am using XP Pro. I just would hate to go through this process and have any problems when I am okay with what I have. All replies welcome Thanks, Rich

Here is what I have found on the T-Mobile site. I am still running build .666 and my wife was on T-Mobile's .448 build, she upgrade to the .706 version without issue. IMHO if you are not seeing any issues with the build you have, specifically in regards to the "improvements" listed below, then stay with what you have. Like you said, if it ain't broke....
A data plan is required to complete this update.
The latest software version can be downloaded from Unsupported Browser
Check the Software version.

Yep it's old but T-Mo pushed it out. I tried .723 in the past but the battery life wasn't a good and the stupid "roaming" bug drove me nuts.Owner of T-Mobile Bold 9780 and a 16GB Playbook

I'm running Bundle 1879 and have no plans to change. The 9780, albeit my favorite Berry at present, will probably be replaced next year or soon thereafter - hoping that the "10" is what I expect it to be. In the mean time, my 9780 does what I want WHEN I want it to very dependably ...and.... There are no issues at present. Any upgrade and I'm bound to run into issues of some kind. If the "10" was not coming out and if I thought I'd keep this 9780 for two or three years (replacing it as needed of course), then I might dabble with a so-called "upgrade". But since we are on the twilight stage of this great and dependable Berry, I'll keep using it as it is because as you have said "it ain't broke". Why goof around with something that's quite efficient and working well "As It Is", all for a possible minor tweak that could run into issues and cost you time and aggravation, for a Berry you will most likely only have for one year?
I run two businesses from my 9780 and I can't afford to be out of business because of an OS upgrade issue.
That's my opinion. Mileage may vary.
UPDATE: I did update to version 184.108.40.2066 after experiencing many problems with application updates. BatterPudding suggested this version. It is rock solid and has solved all of my issues. I'll be happy with it for the REMAINDER of my time with my 9780. I am assuming I'll have to retire the phone sometime in 2014.
