not sure if it was this way before, but in several screens the track pad does not function, and I am unable to select suretype words using the trackpad. Not sure if this can be confirmed. I have rebooted several times and re-installed once.

I installed the Bell All Lang version last week. I have to say for me this is the most stable version, especially for calls. The last several upgrades I had so many dropped calls on a daily basis it wasn't evene funny. This version has had no dropped calls yet (hope I didn't jinx myself now). Battery life is still so-so. If I don't have too heavy a day I can last without a recharge before bed. Otherwise I have to recharge before going out at night.

Here is my "Updated review" from the other Cinci Bell thread. Just wanted to post it so that it may be of some help to anyone on here. In addition to the post here-I want to add that for whatever reason, my media player is much clearer and seems to be running better! It appears that this build might just be the one in that it is a "Bell" build (think AT&T) and therefore may not have the same mic issues that plagued the earlier non-AT&T builds. Keep your fingers crossed! Below from post yesterday--today remains the same re: battery life, etc. All great!
"Hi All! Here is my 72 hr point by point update on the Cincinnati Bell .746 upgrade.
* Downloaded and installed .746 on Friday afternoon--Nov 16th.
*After deleting both Vendor.xml files from AT&T build (.694) I downloaded the .746; backed up and installed what I thought was the .746 upgrade--however, it did not install but rather updated the .694 build again (just copied over the same files).
* Did another search and found to my surprise, a newly applied vendor.xml file only this time with the current date. Duh-when it upgraded, it dumped either the new AT&T vendor file back on, OR it may have been a vendor.xml file from the new upgrade. Regardless, I deleted it and dumped the recycle bin, and rebooted the PC (old habit and glad of it).
*Apploader then saw the new upgrade and loaded it on.
* Once loaded a rapid blinking yellow light wouldn't stop, so I deleted Advanced OS figuring it may be from that app, and it apparently was, as it stopped.
*The initial battery life sucked to say the least--average between 6% and 27% drain, but, after a few battery pulls, it settled in and was back to normal 2.5% or less.
* Reloaded the Advanced OS (only use it for battery monitor at this point as it is the only battery monitor that I've found that doesn't drain the battery-go figure--lol)
* Advanced System / Battery Analyzer wasn't on the build automatically and I had to manually initialize it (ALT+BDBA)
* Put on charger at 11pm Friday night.
* Saturday, Nov 17th-- did a few battery pulls--battery remained about 2.5% with average usage throughout the day. 38% remaining at 11pm Sat night
* Sunday Nov 18th--Removed from charger at 6:30am and ran it until 11pm last night with minimal usage throughout the day. When I put it on the charger at 11pm there was still 48% remaining on the monitor and the BA showed an average usage of 1.2% hr. This is by far the best battery drain I have ever had on any build.
* I took it off of the charger at 7am this morning and as of 12:21 pm today, with a lot of usage (emails, texts, bbm, calendar entries, etc) there is still 87% remaining and average drain rate of 1.41%/hr.
* Under “Issues with Device” it shows 21% remaining (not low on memory) but have never been sure if that means that there is 21% left or that I’ve only used/using 21%. Seems like this is a lot if its all that is left but it’s always been in that area. Did a battery pull when I took it off charger this am and everything remained the same except the memory went from 17% to 21%--like normal.
All in all, it appears to be a great build and much faster browsing and app opening/etc. I am concerned about the “bad cities” but since I’m not traveling other than to Dallas over the next few months, I’m not worried currently about it. Might move to a hybrid later—just prior to my purchase of a new BB10—LOL--- Just wanted to post this update as it may be helpful to someone out there. Go1ndr".

Weird - I'm on .714 and this update file says it wasnt to downgrade the 7.1 core!!!!
Date Apploader directory creation shows 12/12/2012 - yet vendor.xml is 26/10/2012 (thats fine) and other contents show 11/10/2011 (not fine) - and this is after a deletion of the Apploader directory and reinstalling the patch from start!!!!

I just got a BB 9810 so I'm totally new to the BB world. I apologize in advance if I ask some obvious questions.
The BB is from Rogers but I've unlocked the phone and I'm using it on another network.
Its running on OS. 7.0 but I want to update it to the latest OS.
My questions is; can I update with it with the above update? Or do I need to search for the update specific to Rogers?
Also, how do I go about the update after downloading it.

This is one of the best versions of the OS that i have upgraded to.
Here are some of the best features:
1. Speedy boot time about 1 minute to splash screen.
I had persistant problems with the os 126.96.36.1994 hanging 3/4 way through the boot process. (seems to have gone away now.)
2. GPS seems to sync up faster now.
Google Maps still is slow.
3. WiFI hot spot works without a tethering plan on ATT.
Still has an issue under low light conditions where the cursor moves by itself. (I don't understand why they have not fixed that yet...)

Hey Troshs! How are you? You are going to love the .746 from Cincinnati Bell though they do not allow free hotspot (Bell/ATT one in the same so to speak). The UTS version or better yet, Mobilicity has a version of it that is most likley free like their .378 was. I have heard that the latest .794 from Star Hub is very stable and fast as well. I've been using .746 since the Cincinnati Bell version came out and I have zero complaints! Good luck and let us know what you do. Here is the link for it (.746 Mobilicity) : https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...wseSoftware.do
Here's another good link to keep on your desktop so that you don't have to always look up the carriers. These are all the carriers in the world and their downloads. Good info from BB and most know about it, but rather than always going through the steps, this is an easy to get to shortcut: BlackBerry - Desktop & Device Software Download Sites for BlackBerry users - Canada

Well, go1nder, I'm doing as good as I can in this life. Hope you are well too.
I disappeared for a while because I lost my internet/cable for a while, and I don't have unlimited data on the BB anymore. I actually decided to try and download StarHub's version, for some reason no matter what I did .746 wouldn't come up in my desktop manager as an option for OS load. It might have just been my ***** computer though...they've all been wacko because they are 4 months behind on updates hehe.
So I installed DM on my desktop computer that I just reacquired from my parents who got a new Windows 8 computer for Christmas...when the desktop is done being a pain in the wazoo, I'm going to load StarHub's update and see what that gives me. AT&T's update was working fine until I started seeing data charges whether I was on WIFI or not....and at one point I had my phone off and hooked up to the charger for a full day to prime my battery. I still noticed data charges for that whole day! Neither me or AT&T could figure it out, and so I downgraded to .378 for a few days, no problems, went back up to AT&T's updates and voila! More data charges. I downgraded back to .378 until I can get StarHub's working. I've spent hours on the phone with AT&T only for them to tell me they don't know what is going on, but all the while I'm still getting data charges (forgot to mention, I even put the SIM card into a non-smartphone and still had problems). Somehow though, going back to .378 has eliminated this ***** problem for now.
Sorry for getting off topic, just pretty craptacular stuff

i have same issue with my 9810, i upgraded to .714 and suddenly the trackpad refuse to copy or move left or right. but it clicks. i actually tot its a hardware issue but seeeing ur post me makes me feel its d upgrade. can someone help out pls. i am frustrated already

Here are two links to keep on hand. The first is a must as it is constantly updated. It is an official BB carrier/OS list and once on it, you pick the carrier and click on it, follow the instructions and you'll get what you need. The link is: BlackBerry - Desktop & Device Software Download Sites for BlackBerry users - Canada
The second is for Cincinnati Bell .746 (note: I actually switched to the Mobilicity .746 as it seemed a little less laggy--hourglasses on Cinci download but not with Mobilicity). Here is the link: https://swdownloads.blackberry.com/D...wseSoftware.do
Here is the Mobilicity .746 download site:
You may have to just go to the main list and download as the addresses seem the same.
Good luck and try them both to make your own choice.

I just upgraded to the Cincinnati Bell version of 746 from the Vivo 188.8.131.529.
On T-Mobile USA, WiFi Calling worked on Vivo's 569. I haven't gotten WiFi Calling to work on Cincinnati's version of 746 (BIS and BES work over WiFi). WiFi Troubleshooting diagnostics give error W006.1.
Suggestions? Or should I switch to the Roger's version of 746?
