    So, I've been using 593 for ohhh, about a week or so.

    Does anyone have problems with the UMA dropping, and the 3G dropping to EDGE?
    My UMA seems to drop. It works after battery pull but then later it drops again.

    is .656 any better?
    a bit faster for me... bootup takes 2min dead on

    picture scrolling in my media folder is noticeably faster

    also have a big boost in free mem... went from 108 to 122MB (after the caches fill up, was like 106.5 to 120.5)... PS I strip out all non-essential to me stuff from the OS's 'java' folder (ie. cod files) prior to installing...

    I reeeally want to be able to type in Japanese. Does this one allow that? I used to have the Curve 8900 and had no problems writing in Japanese and now when I upgrade to this phone, it seems impossible.
    I have .545 east Asian on my 9700 and I can type Japanese.

    after about a month or so using leaked version of 593 with no issues at all except of course Shazam's no workie, i just notices my visual voice mail has no option to listen via speakers, anyone has this issue also? please let me know, going to search this on google now
    I have the same issue with visual voice mail after installing this version, but if you hit the menu button while a voice message is playing, scroll down & you should have the "activate speakerphone" option & once selecting it, it should switch to the speakerphone. It does for me, but, we should only have to push the speakerphone button for it to switch over!

    Hold the ALT key down and then hit the speakerphone key and VVM will go to the speaker.

    It's a little stupid - or maybe just different - but when you think about it - the speakerphone really is the ALT function for that key.

    back on .593 after a couple days with .656.... signal and wifi seem more stable with .593.... wasn't bad with .656, but noticed some lag with wifi, and seemed to jump back and forth a tiny bit (both between cell and wifi, and Edge and 3G... not much, but noticeable.... something that didn't happen at all with .593.... so back for now)

    Software For BlackBerry® Bold (TM) 9700 smartphone

    BlackBerry Handheld Software v5.0.0.1022 (EastAsia)

    Package Version: 5.0.0.1022
    Consisting of:

    Applications: 5.0.0.593

    Software Platform: 5.1.0.147

    File name: 9700jEastAsia_PBr5.0.0_rel1022_PL5.1.0.147_A5.0.0. 593_CSL_Limited_customers.exe

    File size: 123.58MB

    Note: The Software Platform and Applications version numbers can be found under Options-About screen on the handheld.


    Download Software

    Download AllLanguage version here

    Instructions for installing on ANY carrier's 9700:

    1. Download the above OS file to the PC then install it to the PC by running (double clicking) the file you downloaded.
    2. Go to c:\program files\common files\research in motion\apploader and delete the file named "vendor.xml."
    3. Plug in BB and double click on "Loader.exe." It's located in the same place as the above vendor.xml file.

    The process takes about 45 minutes to an hour depending on how much data you have to backup and restore during the process. Once it's done loading the new OS it will reboot (it may do this twice during the entire process.) You will see a white screen with an hourglass for up to 20 minutes at a time while the DM says "waiting for initialization."
    If, for some reason, you end up with a white screen with small icons and the number 507, simply connect to the PC again and run Loader.exe again and it should load the OS to the device.

    For anyone having trouble installing, there's plenty of pointers here:

    It's the same OS, but the All Language has more languages to choose from. If you're like most, and need English, I'd DL the EastAsian, it's smaller.

    Remove encryption and disable memory clean, then try rebooting again. Should be a little over 2 minutes.

    Let's try keeping it simple. It's on your PC, so do a search, including hidden files, for vendor.xml and delete any you find.
