    At&t lags on upgrading their OS, it's been a long time since i've had an update for my Bold 9900.
    Which OS is the most stable for At&T, Should I download the one for verizon? At least it's 7.1

    I have a 9810 so can't be sure on 9900 but---everyone seems to be happy with the .391build from Rogers and it seems to have little or zero problems. I looked for you to try and find the mobilicity download as I know their one for the 9810 is flawless, but couldn't find it in a search. Will keep looking and let you know what I find out, if anything.

    I'm really liking shrunken .523 on AT&T so far, everything works as expected...
    4G is as spotty as ever, Wi-Fi is really locking onto my 5 GHz / 40 MHz connection...

    .523 has issues with the mic, for me anyway. Not every time, but every couple of calls my mic goes out.

    .523 was promising, but the mic thing, which is no small problem (no one can hear you -- these are supposed to work as phones, right?) so I am retreating back to .391 (unless there's some better advice).

    .342 has been great so far with one small issue where the browser closes and re-opens on occasion.

    Any ATT people care to comment on .391?

    I use the .391 version from Rogers and have been very satisfied with it.

    I used OS .342 with my 9900 and had no problems with it. My battery would usually get me through the day and the call quality was good although at home I would experience an occasional drop call. I recently upgrades to OS .428. It is too early to talk about the battery life but the 4G signal strength seems to be 5 bars every time I check it. I want to upgrade to .523 but the mic issue has kept me from doing so although I understand it has been problem with some on build .428.

    After trying them all so far .342 is the one that works best for me. DC/VA/MD

    Rogers 391 gives me nothing but annoying freezes. Also I think the radio is not as good as the 7.0 version I had.

    .523 in Oklahoma is a dream! I use the .569 browser though, but other than that, the AIS Thailand version has amazing speed with amazing battery life!

    No mic issues? I just reloaded 391. In all of these forums they sat there are Mic issues for anything above 400. I would love to put 523 on my device but I travel across the country every week and can't afford for the phone not to work.

    Anybody get a 500+ OS to work on ATT without mic issues?

    I'm still using .267 as its the only build that still allows me to use the mobile hotspot feature without having to add any additional packages to my plan and I am able to keep my unlimited data. Ever since I have had the unlimited data (4 years) I have never gotten any of those throttling messages from them but once I was able to use the hotspot with my laptop and playbook I have been utilizing it more. Battery life overall is pretty good I can go a full day with moderate email, heavy texting, moderate use of the streaming audio via Bluetooth, moderate web browsing. I still do a reboot (alt+caps+del) about twice a day just because its kind of second nature now. Shrunk the OS went from I believe it was 267 to about 93 I may be wrong. All and all I am happy with it, I have tried the newer OS's but like I said for me the mobile hotspot has become very useful so I am sticking to it until another resolution can be found without me having to pay anything additional.

    I have been using .523 for the last two weeks on Att in Jackson MS without any issues. Never had mic issues too. Battery life on an average 12 hours. Browser unexpectedly closes once in a while. I am happy with this OS.

    AT&T lags better and longer than every other carrier. Its that kind of customer commitment that allows them to charge so much!

    I've never had a mic issue on my att 9900. I am using .523 and its okay. It lags bad when typing. In the middle of a sentence, it freezes for like 5 seconds, and it doesn't finish what I type. It just stops. And I get random black blank screens sometimes. The freezing thing happened 4 times typing this on tapatalk.

    To the op you cannot run a verizon 7.1 on an att phone. Made for 2 different phones. You have to run an os for a 9900 not a 9930.

    I ran 523 and had a little more spinning clocks than I like so I went back to 284 from tmobile and I'm glad I did.

    I can use my hotspot without being charged for it.

    So 9900/7.1.0.284 (B998) has my vote.

    So eve6, comparing the os you are on and .523, do you notice any major differences besides the clock?
