1magine says: "there are a great many that share my frustration with BlackBerry", I'm sure there are, there are also a great many that are perfectly happy with BlackBerry. I'm sure most of the "great many" with your outlook also had the common sense to move on as well and stop punishing themselves and others.
Also, pointing out my post count and join date is just juvenile. It's really irrelevant, but as a point of reference, this is not the only account I've got on this website, I joined CrackBerry years ago.

I was having GPS lock (worked fine initially, but ended up with aGPS) issues in .342 and when I loaded .402, the GPS lock was fast and accurate. Now, I've seem to run into the same problems as before. The GPS would stop locking my coordinates and rely on aGPS. It seems to fix itself when I do a battery pull, but the problem would come back with in a few minutes.
Literally, I start up GoogleMaps (after a battery pull), within seconds I get a solid GPS lock (options->device->location settings gives me 9 satellites being picked up) with a 10m radius accuracy. Within minutes, my GPS lock in GoogleMaps gets lost and then my accuracy goes to a 1500m radius. This happened being outdoors.
Even when I go to Options->Device->Location settings to "Refresh Location", it can't get any satellite lock at all.
Other than this re-occuring problem, .402 works quite well for me.

This is a .402 issue. I believe I reported on page 1 or 2. Nothing you can do. I think its worse than .341/.342. I also think the wifi and definately the radio antennaes are not as good. I'm really surprised more people aren't reporting these issues. Though there are so few 9850/9860 users left. I remember the days when there was a leaked OS for any device and the findings and fixes thread would balloon to 16 pages in the first few hours.Ad Lucem

Appreciate the feedback. I'm not sure if it's related to the weakness of the GPS antennae or perhaps something with that's application related. I'm no engineer, so most likely, I'll never know.
I probably would have to do a clean wipe and install each app on its own one at a time, use it for a few days, and see what app would be the culprit, but man, that would take forever. By the time I'm through, a new leak would probably be out.
And you're right, it's unfortunate how there are less and less Torch 9860/9850 users. I think it's a terrific phone, aside with these nagging issues.
They should just concentrate on two phones. A keyboard BB and a touch screen BB. Forget everything else. Apple's success just relies on one phone.
And also, they don't need to hire people to write a release on so many different phones, that just creates more problems than it would solve.

It's such a hard problem to replicate and I've tried to Google search an answer and it doesn't seem many others are having the same problem that I'm having, which leads me thinking it's probably a piece of software that causing conflict with the GPS. So far, I've deleted Poynt and problem is still there. I can scratch that app off the list.

I have been running .402 for about 7 days straight without doing a battery pull. I am very pleased with the stability of this release. Especially since I have yet to see the dreaded media processor error. I use the media player far more throughout the day than the phone or anything else.

I've actually just came across the "tinny" audio sound from the music player the other day. It seems to happen on random, but it seems to happen if I pause and resume a track or if I unplug & plug the audio adapter from the phone. Usually, it end up having to press the "stop" button and play the track from the beginning.
It's happened before in previous releases as well. Too bad, would be nice to have a device to take on the tasks of my iPod nano (4th gen, what a tank).

I'm not sure if any of you have this same quirk, but when I'm using the browser and double click a portion of the page with long rows of text, the app smartly re-runs the sentences so they fit nicely horizontally. On more than a few occasions, I would scroll around the screen and all of a sudden, the rows of text are no longer formatted to fit the width. Is it a setting or software issue?

I had issues after initially installing it, but it seemed to iron out (bridge with my PlayBook being a major one). However, I've noticed some major memory leaking going on, and unresponsiveness. This has started to lead to battery pulls (reminding me of my Storm). I've also had bluetooth audio syncing issues, where after 1 song, it will often (not always) garble up songs where it jumps ahead and then back again. Sometimes instead it just speeds up or slows down playback (it skews the sound to a higher or lower key). The other day I finally got the tinny sound after pausing playback using my headphones. I need another leak. I feel like a crack addict (that's why it's crackberry, I guess).

If people from RIM are reading our issues, I'd also like to add one more. I'm just finding this out now as I type this. I've enabled Mobile Hotspot and downloading off newsgroups using my laptop to eat up some of my data. The download is taking a while so I leave the 9860 on its own and naturally, the display dims out and the phone goes to sleep. The bug is when i press any key on the phone, there is a lag/delay. Not just a second or two, it ranges from a 30 second to a 2 minute delay until the screen turns on again. Manually locking and unlocking the phone doesn't exhibit this bug. Just when it goes to idle on its own.
If any of you guys can recreate the bug and have found a fix, I'm all ears.
