First off, Wi-fi calling now appears (orange uk) its not UMA but its a start!
I also haven't yet had the media player / tinny audio bug
GPS lock is fast in apps
Responsiveness is the same as last few 7.1 leaks
Still reinstalling apps so will post anything else i find, i do however think this is the last release we'll see!
Edit: this is on a 9860

Really? Damn! What about the dimming screen bug?
I'll assume the memory leak will not be anywhere near gone either...
Someone give me a reason to install this OS please!

I installed .649 today. I can confirm that Wi-Fi Calling does now appear in the Mobile Network Menus (Wi-Fi Calling Preferred), thanks for the tip dvc.
I can't confirm Wi-Fi Calling works yet for calls, as I' won't be connected to Wi-Fi until I get home. Here's hoping (I am on Rogers and do still have Wi-Fi UMA access enabled on my account).

Not impressed so far. I have a phantom email notification that won't go away. Multiple reboots and mark prior opened attempts.
But this isn't even the worst thing. I can't edit or create and autotext/word substitution! WTF!?
Can anyone else confirm this?

I am using .649 on 9860 since last 12hrs. Not noticing any big improvement over .569. To me 569 had more stable signal than 649 since I noticed loss of signal or fluctauting from 1 bar to 3 in my room more frequentlly while it was stable in .569. Any one else notice this?

I am not sure. I probably have been subscribed to Wi-Fi Calling (UMA) on Rogers even though I no longer had a UMA device (kept hoping for UMA or Wi-Fi Calling to come "any time now" I suppose).
Anyways, after installing .649, it was already set to Wi-Fi Preferred in Mobile Network Preferences. So, as soon as I got home and connected to my home network, I got a new icon (which replaced the H+ indicator) to show Wi-Fi Calling, and a few info boxes reminding me that if I go out of range, my call may drop, etc. Tested out a couple calls, and all works great.
If it does work for you without a Wi-Fi Callling Plan ($5/mo) or TalkSpot Plan, then I guess it's not necessary. If it doesn't work, then I can only guess that one is needed.

Been running the new .649 for a day... LOVING IT.
This phone is on par with the iPhone 4S in my books. The apps I want, I have (though they could be updated)
Social Feeds - Like EFFing update it!!
But this phone is awesome!!

1-media bug is still there
2-cant create or edit word substititions
3-battery drain seems higher than .569
4- initially touch screen wld not respond, needed a reboot, never happened before.
I may try a wipe and reinstall if I have the time.

Re-configuring your settings is pretty much un-avoidable, even with the Desktop update.
It's not a 100% perfect process.

It's easy..go to options>device>advanced system settings, push bb menu button, select show keyboard. Press the bottom left corner (&%123) and then ??5*..that's it. Actually it's the same as typing alt+bbda but in virtual keyboard. Hope it helps..
