    So I've had my very first BlackBerry (Bold 9900 on Vodafone UK) for a couple of months now and have decided to take the plunge and upgrade from stock.296.

    Which is the way to go, leaked .440 or official .439 ?

    Alternatively, am I better off waiting for my carrier to release an upgrade ?

    All thoughts/comments greatly appreciated

    Haven't tried .440. But the .439 is working great for me. Also grab the latest appworld beta and you will be a happy camper.

    raise my 2 legs and 2 arms up & up for 440.

    I think 439 sucks... just wiped and go for 440 again.

    wat about max's 440 hybrid.

    Both 439 & 440 are buggy. I'd recommend .353. Both 440 and 439 cause wierd freezing of the touchscreen that's never happened on 353 also I had a random freeze an reboot on 439.

    I found the opposite since upgrading from .250 to .440. My batt life improved noticeably. I only recently installed Meterberry so I don't have any concrete observation to share yet.

    BTW, during the RIM outage your phone would discharge much faster due to phone trying to constantly make a connection to RIMs backend. Things should be much better now.

    So far I have been averaging about 6.5% discharge per hour according to Meterberry since upgrading to .440. That's with fairly average usage of phone, txt, email and some browsing.

    I've noticed a couple glitches in both 439 and 440. When texting, a duplicate draft will sometimes appear in the inbox, which gets a little annoying. I've also been having issues with my convenience key ever since 343 or so. It simply will become unresponsive at times. I wonder if it's a hardwaer issue, glitch across multiple OS builds, or an app that's causing it...

    Installed .439 WIND a few days ago over .250 T-Mobile. After a few reboots, the battery is better, and it keeps the signal a little bit better than before (which should be the case since their radio stacks are the same). It seems more stable overall. If you are on T-Mobile, then I recommend this over .400 until the official TM arrives with UMA and Hotspot.

    Unfortunately not.
    The OS' are .exe files. You need a PC to install...

    I haven't noticed any appreciable difference between them I think both are good but then again I'm not noticing any battery or other non-cosmetic issues.
