    New 9900 sim-free device coming tomorrow, and what with all the errors and bugs floating around the forums, I am wondering what OS I should use.

    I have 7.0.0.176, 7.0.0.261, 7.0.0.296 and 7.0.0.317

    What's a guy to do?

    My 9900 came with 296 preinstalled. HAven't had a single error yet.

    Battery life was horrible the first day at 15% average discharge rate per hour ( I was using the phone non stop for 6 hours and it reached 35%

    2nd day now, average discharge rate dropped to 1.9% on idle and 6-7% with moderate usage.

    I think another day and it should stabilize, I have no need to upgrade

    Normally I'd just install the latest one, but the paranoia has hit me because of all the bugs.

    Might just stick with the pre-installed OS and see how it goes.

    I usually have very good luck with Vodafone's OSes, they seem to select the most stable OS always

    This time, luckily, my carrier has the same version as the vodafone (296)
