    I have been reading good things about the 2.1 beta so 3 hrs ago I signed up for the 2.1 beta on the BB web Site. The site said to wait for about an hour and then check for updates. That was about 3hrs ago. How long does it usually take?

    When I applied for the update it was almost instant. Try going into your settings & searching for the update if it hasn't popped up already.

    I've done it twice previously and it was instant, registered for a new install tonight and it's been a couple of hours so far. Must just be their servers, if it's not here in the morning I'll just do it manually as 2.0 is poo.

    Either that or they're preparing a new one

    After you've registered go into:

    Settings

    Software Updates

    Check for Updates

    My experience is that you will get the update very quickly using that method.

    The two previous betas I've signed up for were available almost instantly. Sorry to hear your not having much luck. 2.1.840 is very good. The only thing I've noticed that isn't working for me is my mini keyboard which is a bit of a drag. Hope you get your notification soon.

    Updated successfully. Things "seem" a little snappier... I think. Not really sure. What other improvements should I see as far as functionality? Other than performance improvements I mean.

    If you're updating from the prior 2.1 beta, you won't see much difference. If yoy're updating from 2.0, then there's a sticky in the OS sub forum about the differences- no need to repeat everything here. http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...s-here-727423/

    I have noticed that signing up for Betas gives me instant access most times. When I don't get access within 5 minutes, I sign up again. Always works on the 2nd try for me.

    I find that if the wireless update doesn't appear soon after registering, I can connect to Desktop Manager and the update notification is there...ready and waiting.
