    I downgraded from .138 to .131

    -Much longer battery life using .131
    -better signal using .131
    -Call timer exists in .131

    .138 was very disappointing in retrospect

    How the .160/.131 hybrid working for folks?

    Was there any other changes? My battery life doesnt bother me because I am on the phone all day, doesn't matter what I do the battery is doomed to run out. I don't get a great signal when @ the office but no one does so I'm not really concerned with anything there, it seems inevitable that signal here is going to suck.

    I am that kind of person who likes to stick with the official OS from Verizon, I know, it's stupid, but I just feel more comfortable that way...

    I never used Verizon's official .138. I think I used Telus'.

    I am not seeing too many chnages other than what I posted. A few minor, insignifant items I am forgetting at this time.

    The .138 was horrible for me, worse than .77 so I went with the .160/131 hybrid and it's a world of difference. Speaker blast gone, No trackball lag at all, battery lasting a little longer than .77, apps work much snappier and even browser speeded up a little.

    I too didn't want anything but the official OS but this hybrid should be official

    I went from Verizon official .77 to Telus .138 and I agree with you --a big difference. The .77 was a failure

    I think I may try the hybrid this weekend. Thanks for input
