I still wanna try "that Hybrid" you're sittin' on ...
BTW - this .723 may have a few small bugs here & there BUT I can vouch one thing that the Radio is soooo good it makes up for all its negatives.
The Radio also immensely helps to offer blazing fast 3G access via the browser, super-fast Facebook / Twitter / Social feeds updates and also fast browsing with downloads with AppWorld.
The ONLY negative I see of now would be the battery.
2 weeks of observations should be a decent time for comments on battery life ... ( meanwhile i recommend a battery pull once a day )

- Yes thanks
Question is are you suppose to have no vendor.xml on your PC when you do the upgrade. Or are you supposed to delete the old one, then install the software upgrade file on your PC, which gives you a new version of the file specific to the upgrade you are trying to carry out.
Tried to carry out an upgrade both ways without any success.
Think I might go back to non-smartphone.

there should be no vendor.xml on your PC when you do the upgrade.
some times vendor file is hidden, check for it in c/users/your account name/app data/roaming
change the hide files setting before searching for it. definitely a vendor file is there which is not allowing update from showing up in DM

OK - here's a brief of how good the Radio of the .723 is ...
I was on a conf voicecall for 96 min, (using the hands-free) - during which time, my handset maintained perfect 3G status. In that span of time, 17 incoming emails flowed in, I was able to quickly scan them for importance; a host of bbm messages flowed in & out of the phone, 4 bbm messages each with a picture were sent while 2 bbm messages came in with pictures too;
AND All this without even breaking a sweat ... WoW !! This is top-class performance
A perfect business phone yet it does tasks out of business too ...
The downside was when the conf-call started, my battery was 65% and when it ended after 96 min, it had just hit 10% with the battery indicator showing danger levels ...

To me it seems to be a very stable build, I stayed with 668 for a while and I'm not regretting upgrading at all.
Battery life seems to be rather good aswell, as it does take a while for it to go from 100 to 70, afther that period I didn't see the infamous battery drop.
I left it on over night at 45%, when I woke up it was 40%, which is what I found to be normal.

Yes, it is normal and I guess you don't have Apps running in the background ...
I have FB updating every 2 hrs, twitter every 1 hr, weather every 1 hr, BB Protect daily backup in the middle of the night, and that's about it ... And oh! 3G is 24/7 ...
battery is 3 weeks old ... but an authentic one from the BB Service Centre

Hey I upgraded from .668 and it fixed some major issues I was having, phone was slowing down and every time I type or am in browser or a messeging app my cursor wud start moving up while I type, was freaking annoying and was doing it way to often. This fixed all of that. Love it <3

One thing I've noticed is that the Home Screen Preferences menu bug has been fixed. I didn't need to insert.461 .cods. Will report battery performance observations in a few days.
