    OS I have ever loaded. Is it 169 or is it really time for me to get a Tour. My Curve has never been worse.

    the first time i loaded .169 Cellular South onto my 8330 i experience severe lag issues . i gave it the neccessary time to correct itself ( phones are always slow after a OS update )
    the phone was still to laggy and slow .

    i resorted back to the old trust .160
    well now US Cellular ( my provider) has released .169
    i upgraded to it , not one single issue since !
    works like a charm .

    what could be different between the Cellular south and US Cellular .169's ?

    I have had no issues with this OS. in fact, I have more memory and a faster, more responsive Curve.

    Mine runs fine. I've had Alltell's release for two weeks now.
    Only thing I noticed was the battery seems to leak more than .127.

    I roam and drop signals a lot, so I just turn the radio off in weak areas, and the batt stays up.

    I just installed a 4.6/5.0 hybrid over my .169 which I had been running for a month or so and I thought and still believe the .169 is great . Response is better - lag is way better and way fewer battery pulls...it sux that ur having problems with it . Is there a possibility something went wrong during the install process ? ?

    What sorts of problems have you been having? I started running .169 soon after it was posted, and I think my Curve's been the most responsive and stable it's been since I got it.

    ...I'm always curious what to look out for, though!

    So what do you recommend I do at this point? I have the Chirp and my phone seems to lag more than it did before. Almost to the point where the Tour is looking better. Did I say that

    yea sure . U can also go to the OS beta/hybrid forum and check out the post - - new 4.6/5.0 files for .169 on 8330 . But I believe u will still have the chirp (not sure) I think . U would need to drop back your radio .cod to a previous version . I'm not sure which one u need but there is a list of them in the hybrid forums depending on carrier

    i swear i think its a problem with the Cellular south .169
    i have a backup 8330 and i just tried the Cellular south 169 and bad lag and looking at the hourglass/busy icon forever !

    removed that OS , put the US Cellular .169 on it , works like a CHARM .

    I have .169 on my Curve 8330m and I haven't had any issues. The battery doesn't last as long though even thru moderate texting and internet. I seldom have lagsm but sometimes my phone will shut off on its own while im tyrping or scrolling around. IDK wats wrong with it, but overall its better than OS .131 or .138. One thing that has improved was the signal. The 3rd party GPS apps, like Poynt, Where, and Google Maps are able to pick up my GPS Location better and quicker than it would with the previous OS'.
