    So far no glitches for me I had many problems with .973
    EDIT: I'm having an issue with syncing with my Desktop it looks to be with 2 of the 442 contacts I have. It hangs at 440 then I get an error. How do I determine what 2 contacts are the issue?
    EDIT #2: on battery pull to see if it would help with the contact sync issue I got the dreaded "Uncaught exception: java.lang.nullpointerexception" just like I did with 973. Looks like I am reverting again.

    You can do OTA OS updates, just takes longer.

    I would use a desktop.

    Everything seems very snappy. For me, it's a lot better than .1000.

    OK just updated my wife's Sprint 8530 she was still on OS
    So far what I notice is when I plug it into the wall charger,
    the clock doesn't pop up. I checked the setting and have
    it set to "Display When Charging". But it just stays on the homescreen.
    I did notice that the lighting bolt over the battery
    when plugged in, blinks. Didn't notice that before, but then
    again, the clock used to show when charging.

    I can confirm that my Sprint 8530 still has broken bedside mode when plugged into wall charger. Settings in clock options are correctly set. Plug it into the computer it goes into bedside mode. Come on RIM, this is ridiculous.

    Looks like the 'no bedside mode/wall charger' issue that cropped up with .973 is still in this update - had to use the net_rim_bb_clock_lib.cod from .886 to get it corrected.

    Also lost the custom icons in bbweather...will work on that fix later.

    so i just got the chance to update my sprint curve from .1000 to .1030 and it is ridiculously slow, like it will take me 30 minutes to download bbm when it would take me 30 seconds before (in the same exact location in my house)

    Could this be ...

    1) i havent restarted it since the update
    2)sprint isnt functioning correctly right now
    3) its buggy and i should downgrade to .1000

    hows everyone elses reception ughh

    FYI... Did the OTA update from 973... Didn't lose any data. It does its own backup as a part of the update. I am on a BES, so I wouldn't lose any e-mail stuff for sure.

    I downloaded and installed this last night. Still missing my bedside mode, but had no trouble installing. I did a battery pull after installation, so maybe that helped?

    well ive done a couple battery pulls and it seems the reception itself is starting to stabilize i believe the problem is with app world itself. just gonna ride it out for a couple days but man im already hoping for another update lol

    Any other one on the horizon ??

    If we can download OS OTA, how can we do to delete the vendor file? Can we do that? Like im with koodo, so can I download and install OTA the sprint's update?
