Downloaded and installed kind of weird for me, apploader froze up on the "restore device data" during the last phase of the installation. Phone booted up fine though and is working normally (I backed everything up anyways).
Don't notice any difference between this and .340
After a 2 battery pulls, the CrackBerry App has frozen up on me twice though.

The mobile hotspot has been available since the first release of 7.1, many months ago.
The phone probably feels "crispier" because its a fresh install, once everything settles in it will most likely be exactly the same.
Not sure about the Playbook thing as I don't have one.
There are some new features under "parental controls" in the security section of the options, the firewall is also "greyed out" and unable to be turned off or changed (not sure why).
Also, I don't know if anyone else has this problem, but when dialing numbers using speed dial the proximity sensor does not seem to work (it has never worked for me on any OS with this phone). It functions normally when manually entering a number or dialing a number out of my contacts, but does not work with speed dial.

just installed .402 on 9860 over .342. seems much better in user interface and locking of network. Typing thru suretype keypad seems to better and key position for tap hasbeen now in centre rather than towrds lower. more report after using for a day.

The browser seems improved. The html5test score is now 275 and the browsermark benchmark score is 50085 which is the highest I've ever seen it. Also, I've always had lag when using the quick reply feature on this forum on the mobile site where only one keystroke would show up every second. The lag is now gone on this build.

Installed with no issues. Took about 40 mins from start to finish. So far two batt pulls and the batt drain is sitting at 3.4% and mem leak after 9 hrs is 34mb. I will keep an eye on everything and report back . So far I would say a worth update from .342. Have been doing quite a bit of surfing and bbm. So batt drain is not bad. Enjoy the update .

Installed last night over .342 with no problems, too early to tell about battery life but hoping it will be better than .342 that was shocking for me. Noticed this morning that Appworld has disappeared and cannot download it as the site is saying that I don't have a compatible device? Anyone else with the same issue?

I'm not sure what you mean by "screen dims off when in use". It's supposed to dim in different lightning levels, unless you mean it fades out completely? If that is the case, again, something could be wrong from a hardware perspective. My screen has never turned off while in use on any OS.
On a side note, and I've had this issue with all releases of OS's on this phone: Does anyone else's proximity sensor not work when using speed dial? Mine works fine when calling out of the address book, or manually entering a number. As soon as I speed dial a saved number though, no dice. Of course you can still hit the top button and lock the phone to turn off the screen during a call, but I heard this was a problem on the 9800...not sure why it wouldn't be fixed by now?
