    Why is it that i did the ota update and desktop software wants to install the same update??? These are some of the things that drive me nuts about rim. Oh well! OS 7.1 is amazing. It is faster and runs real smooth. Love my BB!! Screw virus infested android and that proprietary BS Apple is pushing! BB4LIFE!!!

    My update actually failed OTA. So I waited a day and did it through DM and worked first try. OS7.1 has been working great for me. Battery life seems about the same (better than my old Style so no complaints there)

    My update went smoothly, us the Apploader and did not have any issues. I have to admit, the Battery life has gotten a bit better, so we'll see how that works the next few days. Great update.

    I updated OTA but had to revert to 7.0 because it was so slow after update. Even the time would freeze...not happy with how it works on 7.1. Good thing... I don't need to pay $35 for hotspot LOL

    Hotspot is too expensive! Every month my bridged playbook saves me $30.00 No that adds up!

    Is it just me or does it seem like battery life is much improved while the phone is idle but much worse while using it (if that makes any sense)

    Faster and runs more smooth? How?
    Mine is already fast with .540 and i cant think of anyways that my device will be speedier.

    Update using apploader, OTA updates are the worst.

    OS 7.1 is amazing. It is faster and runs real smooth.
    +1 7.1 is a huge improvement over 7.0
