    so far, and this is preliminary, I'm not having any issues with 607 that I didn't have with 320, with the POSSIBLE exception of radar maps in weatherbug. not sure if I had an issue before, because radar maps wasn't something I paid any attention to. Oh, the Google maps app is goofed up in 607. will freeze the app when searching.

    google sync works, google mobile apps, viigo, pandora, kindle, camera, video camera, videos, voice recorder, voice dialing (with new voice), bbm, iheart radio are all working on my S2.

    BBM groups has a keyboard issue but that doesn't affect me.

    all in all, I like it due to the pop up keys on the onscreen keyboard. that ROCKS!

    I don't have a choice when updating, our IT dept does it remotely when it happens. When we were first issued BB's, they didn't know about OS leaks and we had the freedom of upgrading on our own. After the first of this year, all devices were admin locked. They even deleted the stock games, and socia media apps. If you want a certain app, you have to get it approved first and they install it. And if the app is entertainment based (games, social media etc) you can forget it. With 607, it's like a new phone.

    i like 6, all except for the typing lag is much more noticeable than any of the other previous leaks...But strangely more accurate though. I can type out a bunch of stuff and let the phone catch up, and although it's behind, it will be the correct words..i'm kinda 50/50 on 607

    Try turning up your key rate to "medium fast" to see if that helps..

    No "sticking with .320", or at least an "Other" option? None of those choices apply to my situation.

    I'm still not sure what to do. I finally got the nerve to upgrade to .517 a few weeks ago because, quite frankly, I got so tired of my Home screen not dating; I was fine with everything else. Then I went with OOAK's Hybrid .591, which worked with the .517 files, and now I LOVE everything about my S2 except the VVM App's behavior. Things are FAST, screen touch is great, etc., so I am hesitating putting on the .607 after so many stories about it. I am curious about the improvements, according to VZW's release about .607, regarding VVM. Has anybody noticed any improvements?

    I felt that way until 3 weeks ago when I finally upgraded to .517 (which was much better) and a week later went with OOAK's Hybrid .591 (which is based on the .517 and was even BETTER). You are really doing yourself a disservice by not upgrading, even if it's only to .517. Your S2 will simply perform MUCH better - EVERYTHING will be faster (app-to-app, media data, screens, browser, etc.) and the screen touch will be unbelievable...no more "hard" keys, ever! There really seems to be a few issues with .607, but .517 works great. Just totally backup your phone before you start and you can always go back.

    It's not giving everyone issues. Why not try it out. If you have problems, you can always go back to 320. I was a bit leary about getting the upgrade (company does it, I don't control that), but I have not had any issues and it has improved the device.
