    Looks like RIM is in process of releasing V1.2.0.6 of BB News app. Received notification through Appworld, but its not yet available to download. Keep an eye out.

    The update went through for me. Refresh App World, open it and then type and hold let ALT+R+S+T. Go back into MyWorld and update all.

    Thx, but I had tried all those steps. They released the notification b4 loading the app and allowing to be downloaded. Tried again about 4:45PM and got it.

    BB News 1.2.0.6 also seems to use less app RAM. I gained 3MB after upgrade.

    App World on the phone is still showing me 1.0.1.9. Even after doing the Alt R-S-T thing. I went to the website version of App World, and it showed 1.2.0.5 from last December (which never would load on my 9800 once I actually logged into my account - this in spite of the app saying it was available for OS 6 devices, in the US, on AT&T prior to me logging in). Once I logged in this time, then it showed 1.2.0.6 is available. So, I hooked up my phone to the USB and installed it on my phone.

    After a reboot, I went to the app. It was still 1.0.1.9. What the heck is going on.

    I ended up going to rroyy.com and downloading 1.2.0.5 for OS 7, even though I'm on OS 6. Works fine.

    Still waiting to see if App World will ever show me 1.2.0.6.

    I did notice an almost 5MB increase in ram upgrading from 1.0 to 1.2.

    No, we are saying the same thing. Just from different sides. I see an increase in available ram - is what I meant to say. The other post simply says that the new version uses less ram. But it means the same thing. I guess I wasn't clear on what I meant.

    Have you tried rroyy.com? Scroll down to "Applications" and then down to BlackBerry News. 1.2.0.6 is there under OS 7 and OS 7.1. Although the one for OS 7 works for OS 6 too. I know because I'm using it now.

    It's been almost a month and I don't see 1.2.0.6 in App World. Was this released for OS 7 only?
