    Is this different from teh leaked version that came out last friday?

    I tried that one, and when receiving text messages, it would display the names from my contact book..... since hte text had a +14039999999 and my contact book had numbers stored as 4039999999

    So I went back to .321


    found this on another forum:

    "Installed 5.00.344 this morning. I'm new to Blackberries, it seemed to go okay. The only thing that's really come up so far is my incoming SMS messages started to only display the numbers, no names. If I enter the message, the menu is linked to the proper contact.

    Poked around the interweb for a while and everything seemed to point out SmartDial as the problem. Changing it didn't do much.

    Turned out the problem was that I had entered all my contact numbers as 123 456 7890, with spaces for legibility. It worked fine in the previous OS, (sorry, didn't check the version before I updated, so I have no idea what it shipped with. ). This version choked. When I removed the spaces from the contact number, the name popped right up in the SMS thread."



    I am not having this issue. My contacts also inclue no spaces. Dont know if this may help

    Just successfully added Korean input to my 9700 on Vodafone UK following the steps above. Super happy! Only took around 20-25 minutes on a clean hanset with no data to back up/restore.

    This firmware update has fixed my Vodafone BlackBerry 9700.

    3G now "sticks" a lot better, I've been sat at the same location all day and now I can leave it in 3G Only Mode without it "cutting out"...

    No SMS Bug Here.

    Can't get my Desktop Manager to install this. I have it downloaded, I go to my Application Uploader.. it tells me .330 is (current). I check .344, click Next, and nothing happens. Desktop Manager tells me my BB is up to date.

    It's strange that Vodafone are showing .344 as an update via DM, but on the official BlackBerry OS download site they aren't even supporting the 9700 yet

    As for the SMS 'bug'... the ONLY bug in SMS is when you delete all your messages from the SMS and MMS folder, the *No Messages* title in the blue banner disappears. This bug has been present in all 5.0 OS's for the 9700.

    If you are experiencing no Caller ID from received messages, then your contact numbers are configured incorrectly.
    This is NOT a bug, just remove any spaces/brackets etc, and make sure your country code/area code/national number length options in Smart Dialling are set correctly

    Really... care to elaborate?

    EDIT: just seen your reason on the VF eForum, and I'm sorry but I disagree with you.

    My contact numbers were originally in Outlook and stored with a space because it's a lot easier to read if you need to dial the number on a landline. Every phone I've ever synced with has used the last few digits or has parsed out any non-numeric characters to determine the contact.

    It's a change to the previous version, so lets wait and see whether Vodafone and RIM agree it's a bug rather than categorically stating it's the user's fault.

    this OS is buggy only in the SMS part. I hope they fix this soon, the SMS issue is ridiculous.

    Installed. I got the SMS bug and it's terrible

    I wish they fix it soon. Though I like the Chinese input, seems like its a little smarter in predicting phrase/vocabulary.
