    I just upgraded to 5.0.0.411 last night and it was 100 percent worth it. It was the first time ever upgrading my OS and it was easy. Now the browser is 10x faster, threaded SMS is great and the user interface/GUI is amazing!

    Do it. You won't regret it. .411 should honestly be a full release by RIM.

    New on crackberry. Just upgraded 2 days ago and .411 is awesome. Speed is better on browser, threaded sms is awesome! I had 4.6...304 before and all my apps work perfect. Had to do a couple upgrades to apps when some started but it was very easy. I too reccomend the upgrade.

    Yeah. Go for it. I love it. Everything is faster. The memory is conserved much better. I run all the same apps that I used to run and I have about 12 or 13 more MBs of free space. Pretty convenient.

    PS
    Can anyone tell me how I can get visual voicemail on my phone. That's the only thing I'm missing.

    Also, could someone confirm whether or not moving from the latest 4.6 version (on AT&T) to the 5.0.0.411 leaked one will mess with my BES connectivity? I'm assuming it won't but just wanted to make sure. My company pays for my Bold, and I don't want to screw up my BES integration and cause issues with my work email or with my Calendar syncing and such..

    Thanks!

    Now I wouldn't go that far! It's still not ready for prime time. But to answer the OP's question....yes, my friend, 100% worth the upgrade.

    I have upgraded to OS 5.0.0.411.
    So far i love the benefit which is faster, better interface, and looks like the battery life is better too.

    BUT... some of my third party software can't run in this OS and everytime i do the battery pull, i need to login the email setup.

    No chinese input. I think i'll just wait for the next OS 5 with chinese input.

    If you want to get visual voicemail, find version 5.0.0.238 for the bold, install it, go to program files, common files, research in motion, shared, loader files, click on the .238 folder, and then finally java. Locate all of the VVM files. Install BBSAK, and upload those vvm files to your blackberry. The phone will reboot, and you will have visual voicemail! I had to do the same thing for my Bold running on AT&T.
