    I have a 9780 with bridge ver 1.0.7.4. When I check for updates it says I have the most recent version. I need ver 2.0 for bridge on my phone for it to work right?

    The remote kind of works with the Photo Albums as "presenter" - moves to the next but does NOT work for PREVIOUS.

    When viewing a web page on the phone, View on PB seems to send an alert but does not open the page. Must need OS2 for that.

    Try this link. I had to reset the cache twice before my 9860 saw it.

    Can you open the page on your phones browser and then use the menu button to "open on playbook"?
    Have the option, but it didn't do anything other than start the remote control on my BB. Then when I tried to close the remote control my BB rebooted, lol. I guess that is a 2.0 feature only.

    I am impressed. Been patiently waiting here in St. John's NL since xmas for this update; knew it was coming. Only using Remote so far (9800 Torch) and I like it. A lot. I might have to stay up all night!!
    Wonder if those apple types like a little BLACKBERRY in their pie???

    I, too, am missing the Bridge Browser but maybe they dispensed with it??? Any conclusions on that issue?

    Do you have instructions describing how to do this?
    Yes but it's a little tricky and is not 100% working because once I exit "remote control", you can't do it again until you remove the 9900 bluetooth device from your laptop and add it again and this is troublesome because some of the bluetooth drivers are missing. Here's how I did it:

    1. Make sure your phone is not a bluetooth device on your laptop.
    2. Add it to your laptop and let it load the drivers (for me three don't get installed)
    3. Go to your Bluetooth settings and make sure your laptop is listed.
    4. Ensure that your Playbook is disconnected and your laptop is connected.
    5. Start Bridge 2.0 on your Blackberry and click on the "Use Remote Control" button.

    If I exit, I can't do it again.

    Love the remote feature.

    Any one else have a slightly intermittent problem using the bottom bezel up gesture to minimize the current program? Swipe from top down, or from left to right/right to left works perfectly all the time, but about 70% of the time I have to try a few times to swipe up to get back to home screen.

    Also, when you have a longgg list of apps, or a lotttt of songs or videos, and you want to scroll.....the drag lock really doesn't work well. Try it....with several hundred songs, it takes forever to scroll down to W.

    Apart from these 2 things, I am very impressed (although find it odd that to get this working all it took was an update on our PHONES....couldn't they have released this aaages ago for us??).

    Oh, Verizon Bold 9930 here with PB 1.0.8.6067 OS. Anyone else having the swipe up gesture hit and miss problem?

    Not working for me either. Perhaps it is a 2.0 feature.

    Wow that would be very hard to do with NO WIFI!
    You don't need wifi to use the regular browser. It has worked even before the bridge update.
