    Lets get a ballot going to figure out what Crackberry users are preferring to run on their 8900's.

    Many users here have experimented with different OS's on their Blackberrys at one point or another. This can serve to establish which OS version is preferred by community members.

    Discussion as to which OS is better is found on every thread here, so this is just the final tally of what YOU are running on your phone.

    Official releases are .133, .168 and .199.
    Beta is .174.

    Ill go first..

    I use .174 mainly because I get the best battery life using it (compared to .199).

    haha, yeah.. but you'd be even more solo if you were running .114.

    I hated that OS, battery lasted half a day, .133 finally fixed the battery issue for the most part.

    (I would have added .114 to the poll but it gives a 4 item max)

    was on .199 but downgraded to .174 since my device kept switching to edge instead of being on EDGE. Much better now.

    I like .168 because everything seems to be stable and battery life is improved over .133 (+ youtube works). I'll wait till .199 comes off beta

    So far its looking like we have a mix of those who prefer a solid OS like the non-beta .168 and those that love having the latest OS .199.

    are there any ATT users?

    Isnt an OS beta until tmobile decides to use the OS on the phones they sell? From my understanding, if Tmobile started selling 8900's with .199, that would make .199 non-beta and an official release. The last OS that Tmobile decided to begin using in the future was .168. I read that somewhere..

    174 is working well for me but I don't have anything to compare it to. I upgraded same day I received the device from 114.
