    I'm getting 2 different stories w/r/t the music bug. On the main page someone commented the bug is now worse and the sound changes at random times rather than just following a pause.

    Can others confirm that music fidelity is not changed when using headphones and the sound is paused and un-paused?

    For me - this would be the only reason to spend more than 2 hours to wipe reload, connect to BES, re-download from App world and Beta Zone.

    Thank you.

    I have the Torch 9850 for Verizon. I am running the 7.0 update. Only because any update after 7.0 ruined my speaker phone loudness to where it was not usable basically the newest updates on 7.1. besides this update had a bug. So, I downgraded for now until they BB fixes it.

    Does anybody know if the speaker phone is working now with this new OS 7.1.0.861?

    Please reply here or message me. Many thanks.

    has this update fixed the speakerphone loudness issue? the previous 7.1 updates were horrible as the loudness was very low. Has this new update fixed that issue?
    unfortunately i am currently using 7.0 just for my speaker phone to be loud and able to use daily.

    Is anyone else having issues with GPS working? I also have had a few issues with one of the wifi hotspots at work, but I think the other one is working fine (couldn't authenticate to various apps I'm still setting up) - that may not be the OS.

    I was trying out the BlackBerry Navigator beta that is now available in the US and for the 9850, and noticed I couldn't find my location. I then went into the Location Settings on the device and noticed Last Update showed None. It is turned on. I tried to do a refresh location but it didn't work. I've pulled the battery about 3 or 4 times now.

    I experienced something similar at first.

    I Went to Options / Device / Location Settings, and changed Location service from Location On to E911 only , and saved it
    then changed it back from E911 to Location On and saved again ..
    Then I started Blackberry Maps.. and everything went back to normal

    PS: Navigator is quite nice !

    Media Bug is FIXED!!!! Thank the G-ds! Rather than continually add posts to the thread, I will just update as I go through. Have noticed that the initial scan and indexing of the media card is way, way, way slower than previous builds, but if it fixes the media bug, I am not complaining.

    Navigator should have been on 7.0 devices when they launched. Damn shame.

    A few new things I noticed that nobody else has mentioned:
    1. Switching Application screen- now has text at the top that says 'Switch Applications'.
    2. Under Messages -> Options - there's a new option called Recent Contact Management (Don't think that was there before!)
    3. When viewing your calendar app - I seem to now have a birthday ticker at the top when i scroll down thru the day's agenda. ( I think that's new?)
    4. Calendar Month View- Dates are bold and the blocks for reminders or appointments look alittle different.

    1. Not sure about the switching app thing.
    2. Might be new, didnt notice it before.
    3. The calander has had this for a while.
    4.Bold dates etc. have been there a while.

    But all good things. So far..

    It started working at home. I just checked again, and saw it on E911 Only - I must have accidentally changed it and didn't notice when I saw it working.

    if you mean the vendor.exe, yeah,,, you can use BBHTool to do it automatically,,, there's a little tick box on the startup page,,, you can also "shrink" the OS by deleting any files you feel are unnecessary or don't need,,, be VERY careful when doing this,,, if you're at all in doubt abt the file, leave it in,,, i usually remove up to 100MB of useless stuff,(languages, games, etc.)...

    NO it's vendor.xml files c:\program files or (x86) if 64 bit windows)\common files\research in motion\apploader vendor.xml and the other is in users\your profile\app data\roaming\research in motion\blackberry\loader.xml\vendor.xml

    Or open a command prompt and run this

    click start,type cmd, enter, cd\ [enter], dir vendor.xml /s /p [enter] let it run, take note of where it finds them and go delete them from those locations and try again.
