    Hey everyone, I'm a new BB 9900 user and looking to update to 7.1 from my 7.0 (2406) version. I've heard good and bad about 7.1 like the internet is slower, the e-mail is worse and battery dies to everything runs smoother better battery life and all of that. Can anyone let me know what their experience is?

    It may take you some time, but have a read through the leaked thread for .267.

    It runs to many pages but will give you a good feel for how the OS runs.

    For me both 7.1.0.205 and .267 have been absolutely fine and a cut above any 7.0 OS.

    I think my 990O came with the OS you currently have. I went to .250 a while ago which improved everything. I just loaded .267 Have not checked everything but there is a cool battery saver option. I think if you install the os properly you'll appreciate the upgrade.

    I have the OS 7.1, and its great, the internet isn't slower, the phone runs smoother, and the battery life is better slightly.

    I looked on Blackberry.com and it said I would be prompted to update my software when I plug my phone into the computer (using a mac) but theres no prompt or way to update?

    You will only be prompted to update you software when your carrier provides an updated OS.

    What you can do is install an OS form either another carrier or a leaked OS by downloading it onto your PC and using DM to install it.

    I just installed 7.1 recently. Seems to be working okay, phone-wise.

    AppWorld is slow as molasses and not prompting me to update apps that have newer versions.

    Can't say much for battery life yet. Too early to tell.
