    I just did a software check with my T-mobile 9900 and it finally shows that 7.1.0.648 is available to download officially downloading now!

    Is this update for tmobile uk?

    From reading this thread it doesn't seem that T Mobile has actually released 7.1 as yet, or at least if they have no one has reported successfully downloading it OTA and it hasn't hit anyones DM yet either.

    This being the case I doubt if the OS you downloaded is the T Mobile release and would guess that the app you have noticed is a separate T Mobile update sent to you OTA.
    Yes they have released it. Yes, I have successfully downloaded it. Also successfully installed it.

    Maybe this is a dumb question, but here goes. I love my 9900 and all and have been running .205 leak since its release. My only persistent problems with the 9900 are with Telenav, in that I get GPS and can get to the alternate route screens, but I can't always connect with the server to get my actual turn-by-turn. And I have a bug with my 3.5 audio jack where I have to pug it in and then out repeatedly before the 9900 will pick up that audio out source. .205 fixed neither of these things. It may be a mechanical thing on the auido, but since I've gone "off brand" with the leaked OS (non AT&T) but am still running AT&T Navigator, could that be part of my telenav problem? I get that a leak or official release will work fine across carrier brands, but how does it impact (if it does at all), branded apps like AT&T Navigator? Thanks!

    I had the problem with the audio jack and I questioned whether it was the OS leak I had immediately loadedon a phone just out of its packaging. I received my replacement phone Friday, updated the OS right away again to .205. Happy to report I have no 3.5mm jack issue on the replacement so I am very sure it was a hardware issue on the one I am sending back. Typically only on non OEM earbuds but it was definitely a problem.

    Can I install this software update on my 9900 even if I'm in another country? Just deleting the vendor file via AppLoader?

    Legal Eagle, I used the link you shared in the leaked .205 thread. I installed it last night and there were no vendor.xml files to delete. I just downloaded it to my pc, and installed it. I just followed the prompts, that's it. Thanks, BTW.

    Also, after installing it on my phone, I noticed a new app installed.It's called Tmobile Name ID which prompts you to save the number of the new caller. Also if the caller is not in your contacts yet, it also shows the city where the call is coming from.

    Since this is a tmo app, did i after all install the official .205 from TMO?

    BTW, this app is a subscription app for 3.99/mo. I have to call TMO later to verify whether i have mistakenly confirmed to have/subscribe to this app.
    I see we are making progress. Glad you got your phone up and running.

    You can't be drooling that much. .205 has been available on the Leaked forum for 3 weeks !!!!!

    There are working links in the thread.
    well, I depend a lot on the phone, and last time I installed a leaked one I have to give it up for a day long and I can't afford that.
    and I can't find the working links

    thank you all for your replies, after a couple of battery pulls that option popped up but still not able to update, still showing that OS is current. double drats!!

    Doesn't matter you can still load the same OS with every carrier you want to, why is soooo hard to understand?

    I have Tmo and have been trying to update since around 5pm yesterday. I guess I just need to suck it up and get the leaked or keep waiting. Either way I still won't have NFC. Just don't like the fact Tmo likes to limit and control its customers. I love my 9900, but I would like to use all the features already the way RIM intended it.

    Simple question :
    when a leaked os, for example this one, becomes official, are there any changes between when it was leaked and now as it became official? Have they modified it in any way, or they have just tested it for the whole time in order to make sure it is ok to launch as official?

    thank u

    Why does T-Mobile USA "stagger" rollouts? For the obvious reason: To spread out the impact.

    The backend impact is the files & transmission. TMO is managing a network and doubtless doesn't want a spike in data usage. By releasing the file in stages the load is kept relatively consistent and supportable by the update servers & intervening network.

    The frontend impact is calls to Customer Care. There is always a huge number of folks who compulsively call and ask things like "It says to upgrade now or wait; what should I do?!!! OhMyGawdIsItGonnaKillMeTellMeNowTellMeNow!!!!" Spreading out that call-tsunami only makes sense, especially when there are only so many BB-trained folks to handle specialized calls.

    Then there are the handsets that were 'on the edge' and upgrading them exposed problems, or caused new ones, and now they've failed. Each of those calls is a long and complex one tying up the specialists. Again with only so many specialists it makes sense to ration out the number of upgraders per day so folks don't get stuck in endless call queues.

    Finally there is the fear of some sort of bug, error, or defect, that might show up only after a few days of real world, in the field, use. Yes a great deal of testing has doubtless taken place, but rolling out a bad update is every technology vendor's nightmare and by rate-limiting the updates something awry can be identified before too many are affected.

    And, frankly, as wonderful as a new toy is we're not talking a life or death situation.

    The vast majority of TMO's BB 9900 owners will be blissfully unaware of any new software until their handset announces such to them, and then a significant portion will never bother to perform the update. Of those likely half will never notice anything different.

    It is the rabid fans, the fanatics, those who haunt websites like Crackberry et al that howl in frustration. We'll call demanding answers, repeat rumors or guesses or mistakes as truth, demand the un-doable (updates are outside of the control of CC, there is no provision for sending them to specific handsets or regions.)

    All of this happens every time, with every OS, from every vendor, without exception, and just like every time the vendors and carriers will handle this the same. It is what works best for they & the vast majority of their customers. In several days, assuming the rollout isn't paused or pulled, all of the angst here will be so much more old noise left stale on Crackberry's forum archives.

    I concur. Also I am happy for all the people who are getting early to test out the bugs. I will wait till everything is clear.

    This is one time I will let others Be Bold.

    One answer, two words: bugs & security. If you look at the forums, people always post bugs and problems with leaked software. I also don't like the idea of installing code that's been leaked to my phone, which is the most sensitive thing i have in terms of personal information. It's very simply why me and many other people don't trust leaks and would rather wait it out...
    this. I used to be bleeding edge, grabbing whatever OS had the highest decimal point, but now because I'd rather grab an os update once a month, rather than every other day, I usually look for whatever carrier has stamped their approval on the latest os, yank the vendor and install that. I like knowing that the OS has been approved for at least one carrier aka any bugs are at least livable. Now after saying that, I am d/l 205.. sloowly. :P

    I just got my 9900 so haven't played with it much, but isn't traffic supposed to give turn by turn directions for free? I'd drop that extra charge every month.
