    Yes, using .439 from last 48 hours.

    battery life is good and much better than .353 too.

    today I have charged just once and working fine.

    Does the LED around the trackpad still fade in .439 or does it shutdown instantly like .440?
    I have to say this but on .440 my screen and trackpad both fade fine and separately.

    That makes perfect sense, and is the main reason why I'm sticking with AT&T's leaked .440 OS, being a GSM customer.

    I had terrible reception problems with Mobilicity's .650 release on my 9780 and was convinced that the AWS radio was to blame. As soon as I updated to Vodafone UK's official .668 my troubles were gone.

    I'm sure that the OS sfi radio files are tweaked to suit the individual carriers on official releases, and that many users are unaware of the difference between AWS and GSM bands.

    I am now really mixed up. I wonder if you can advise me to install the .439 or the .440 .
    Is there any real difference ?
    I have BB9900 locked to Vodafone Egypt .

    .439 has a different app version i believe. .440 is good and i decided not to reload with .439 just to try it.

    Installed this on my BB Bold 9900 from Bell Mobility here in Canada.

    Upgraded from .261 to .353 and now to .439.

    1: The installation went smooth as silk, no issues at all. Took about half an hour or so.

    2: All my apps like telenav, berrymeter, tgrape lock, bebuzz, beweather, MemoryUp, deprocman, filescout, opera mini, google maps etc etc. All work 100% fine.

    3: My battery drain on .261 was 19% on average. On .353 was 11.5% on average. On .439 I am seeing 6.3% on average in meterberry. With all the same apps and configs.

    4: The track pad light has lost it's fade effect to save battery power.

    5: On .261 boot time was roughly 90 seconds. On .353 boot time was roughly 65 seconds. On .439 boot time is roughly 50 seconds.

    6: Apps and browser loads noticeably faster than .353.

    7: GPS locks in solid and quicker than under .353.

    8: Appworld seems more stable and smooth. Still a tad glitchy though.

    9: Overall the phone seems smoother and faster in general.

    10: Haven't noticed any obvious bugs or had any problems. Things like the notorious "random freezing" bug are long gone. And battery life is now equal to or better than my old curve 9300, so the poor battery issue is no longer an issue for me.

    If you are still using something like 7.0.0.261, you really want to install this version. It is far superior and the battery life is like almost double what you are getting now.

    Cheers

    Nobody is denying that mobile hotspot is in OS7.1... we've already seen pics of this.

    We were just querying whether BlackBerry Tag is going to be exclusively for OS7.1, and how better battery life is coming to OS7.1
    I don't see any info on BB Tag. In fact Telus Canada never even receive information on what is BB Tag at the first place. (I know what it is, but no one who work with me have no clue what is BB Tag.)

    Step 1: Double click the file you downloaded to install it.
    Step 2: Navigate to C:\Program Files (x86)\Common Files\Research In Motion\Apploader and delete the vendor.xml file.
    Step 3: Reboot your computer.
    Step 4: Plug in your blackberry via usb and open blackberry desktop software.
    Step 5: Update your phone.

    On a side note, I just installed the new Appworld Beta. And now the glitches I originally found in appworld are gone. It runs smooth and snappy without any freezing.

    This bold 9900 is turning into one helluva great device! At this rate, we may have the world's first truly perfect cellphone within a matter of months if these updates keep improving it like this. I am very very happy with my Bold 9900 right now.

    I've used both .440 and .439.
    .439 has a better battery life for sure! even after 12 hours of installing it, i have 50% available (considering the number of times ive done a batterypull, this is too good!)
    However, as for the trackpad fading issue, its still there in .439 but is solved in .440.
    The rest isn't much of a difference. Very stable OS.

    It's not solved in .440... it started in .440

    Not an issue anyway, I like it better this way

    Maybe the file you downloaded isn't finished downloading or something, you might want to try downloading it again from the fileserve link. Sounds like the problem is with uncompressing it.

    And yes, it will work on your phone. Just remember to delete the vendor.xml file from the apploader directory first.

    Where do you get your information from, or are you just guessing?

    RIM didn't specifically mention OS7.1 in their announcement of BlackBerry Tag... just that it's coming in the next OS7 update.

    And better battery life? Seriously? I don't recall that being mentioned at all.

    I try to read every thread on this 9900/9930 forum last week or last 2 weeks
    Someone created a thread just wanted to share this with you
    And he included the screenshot of bb os 7.1 which I saw mobile hotspot, wi fi calling
    Then the bb tag, RIM said it would be in the next essential update and looks as if it is 7.1
    + with newer oses we get better battery life

    Have had it installed for 24hrs now. Battery seems much worse. I unplugged it at 9am and ran out juice by 2:00pm. Very little use. If anything for me personally it seems like439 is much worse than .353 I havnt noticed anything else.
