I got my work BB is from Telus. I had to download the update to my computer, install it and update.
The update so far seems to have better speed than .448
They've also made the screen fonts a bit smoother and smaller.
Still looking into findings.

I installed it without problem and it seems smooth (I was on .723).
The only things is that I cannot activate Entreprise server ! I am not sure it is due to the update itself. It seems ok on my company server's side with a token available to reactivate.
I am wondering if it is not a vodafone issue.
Otherwise, I will have to downgrade....
Has someone been able to active BES ?

I'm on Office 365/BES and have a concern about upgrading. Any opinions? I am on Telus so perhaps I should just bite the bullet and call/ask them.Some people like to build things
Some people like to tear things down
Be a builder, people will like you more.

Ok... so I loaded it up. Kinda a pain... for the last few upgrades, i've had to remove older versions of the OS, and rename the app-loader folder, and of course delete the vendor.xml file... but once that was done, went like a breeze. I'm no BES, and this was the quickest sync I've ever had (so yes, BES is working fine).
As with any update, the phone is faster, but that's also because it was just wiped and cleaned via the install... I expect it will still get its hiccup or two as time goes by...
Other than that, I'm not seeing anything new at this point. I'll update later if I find anything...

I backed up my phone and installed the upgrade via Desktop Manager last night, it went smoothly. I did have to upgrade BBM. The phone is running faster, but rebooting is taking much longer; there seems to be a pause at about 75% done. Also, the trackpad isn't always responding. I had an upgrade showing for App World for .25 before the install that is not showing now even after a refresh of available updates (the .25 vers that allows multi app updating wouldn't show on my phone after install so I had to revert to the earlier vers). I'm sure it will show up again at some point. Otherwise working well

thats my work phone, so i only have it on my from 8am to 4:30/5pm. I didnt pay attention to the battery state by the end of the work day.
I'll make sure I fully charge it Sunday night and keep an eye on it monday during work to see if I notice a battery drain.

I've now been running this for almost two full days. No problems after the update. It automatically registered to the BIS, and the mail setup still works, although I didn't need to do anything with it - my accounts reloaded during the update just fine.
So far, I haven't come across the "multi-tap when set for SureType" bug that I had in the last few builds - including 723. I had to go back to 706 to clear that up.
Everything seems to run smoothly. Battery drain seems about the same as before - no better, no worse. That's about all I can report.

This update seems to have "sped up" a number of my apps. Obviously, I never benchmark start / load / interaction times on the berry, but I've been pretty happy with the speed of my stock apps, FB/Twitter, Social Feeds, etc.
No big change in battery life (although I do believe the #1 battery killer is the blackberry ID software - seems the battery will last for ages if I do an upgrade and never hit app world, but once I update BBID and app world, it goes back to normal drain). I stopped using the batt monitoring apps a few updates ago as I was pretty consistent in my usage.

hows the OS now its settled aftera coupleof days??? whats your realistic battery life for moderate use???
on .723 i ripped through half a battery by lunchtime from 7am start with average use, - emails, social media, bbm, etc.
been sat on .668 for a while as is stable, Great bettery (nomally down to 1/2 when it goes on the dock at 11pm) and copes well with different theme's etc. be nice to have a slightly quicker camera though!!
