The failure is consistent in reports from users with various blackberries, os's and geographies. While waiting for the Terms and Conditions to load, it prompts to exit and restart.

PS: just saw a lot of posts about it under "apps" on this forum. Check this string out on your problem and then check out the forum post under BlackBerry Apps above entitled Google Maps (or something like that) and look at this post(s): http://forums.crackberry.com/general...0/#post7778848

We' ve been off topic for a while- anybody in known bad mic cities have any issues yet? With the holiday travel upon us, prior to upgrading to this build, it would great to hear if anyone is experiencing any problems. Thanks!

So I bit the bullet and upgraded today. It was a bit of a rocky upgrade (Took me a while to wipe the device, then AppLoader wasn't detecting the USB port, and for some bizarre reason only half of my third-party apps were backed up but most of them weren't important) but I figured it out and all is running pretty well now.
However, I ran into an unexpected problem. I mentioned earlier I was worried about Google Maps not working, but the workaround works fine. But another Google service I use has decided to kick the bucket - my calendar sync. I used to sync my calender through GMail on BIS (Never used the Google Sync app so I hope this isn't related to the recent lack of support for it). So I was expecting it to re-sync once I upgraded the OS and all would be well, but that hasn't happened - all of my events are on GMail but refuse to sync with my phone. Anyone have any idea what I can do?
EDIT: I just went into the e-mail setup, it asked me for my password to begin Calendar sync. I entered it, but then I got this error: "Your device encountered a problem with this application's server. Select OK and repeat the action to try again." Could this mean the sync is dead for good?

Yes, it's done On the main Crackberry pages, there's an article referring to this. You can sync personal calendars through BIS, but if you have multiple calendars (as I have) you're in trouble. I downloaded an app (Calendar Sync for Yahoo) as I'm with Rogers (essentially a yahoo email account), and it works great. Otherwise, options seem limited if any. Good luck.

If you only have your main calendar on gmail, you should be OK. Set up your gmail account on your phone. Then, under synchronization options, make sure calendar is checked and it should sync. It's only if you have additional calendars that it's a problem.

Latest Official 9810 OS 184.108.40.2064 from StarHub
For go1ndr and anyone else wondering: I have just successfully used the .794 sfi on an ATT network call from Denver - a known city that had the ATT "mic issue" problem - so this OS does not appear to have the problem.
I am testing a hybrid based on the .794 sfi - but the stock StarHub OS should operate the same.

Thanks Don_Henry! That is very promising news! Did you notice anything major league different between .746 and .794? I know your running a hybrid, but any stock stuff that seems different. Its probably hard to tell if its faster or how the battery drain is, as I know the hybrid your using is on steroids-lol-but just wondering about the other stuff. Thanks-Go1ndr.

I have not seen any differences in OS operation or anything else compared to .694 . . .Z10 - 10.2.1.2947/2229 - work and personal

With all due respect - could you move the discussions about Google calendar and sync problems to the thread about that - people are trying to use this .794 thread to learn about this new OS . .Z10 - 10.2.1.2947/2229 - work and personal

220.127.116.116. I replied to it asking if it was for the 9900 phones and what carrier released it. Not sure if it was BS or not but probably was, as I couldn't find anything else on it. Talk soon!

I dont know if it is just me but I tried to install this OS .794 plain without any mixes or additions to it. I immediately noticed that the signal lock was good< however I have seen temps So high its a suprise my phone has not gone up in flames. More than 40degrees. Average running temps are 30 to 43degrees. I havent seen a lower temps than 25degrees. Should I be concerned? I thought .746 was hot but this particular OS is the hottest I have ever encountered. Is it just me or are there similar reports from others?BBM Channel: C000F811E
What doesn't kill you could very well injure you. Also, its morally wrong to allow naive end users to keep their money

Hey Phly_kid: That's scary! on .746 mine runs about 22 celsius/ 71F. Sometimes a little higher if I'm on it a lot, but never more than 83-FI would think with a lot of use and especially in a hot area, that could fry something! Not sure what avg should be though I did see it on a post sometime ago. Maybe a few battery pulls or a reload is in order. I'm not moving yet, that's for sure--more due to waiting to hear on mic issues--and--if it isn't a lot more than .746, may wait and do a hybrid from Mecca. Keep us posted.
