    I resent the service books and did a battery pull. the browser icon is missing and no icons such as espn open the internet. I did receive an error message upon the completion of installing .103 stating a invalid format although the only missing parts is the browser.

    This is my first post....I upgraded to 4.7.0.103 when it first leaked and I have upgrade to almost all of the leaked versions. This one seemed to be the best for me. Did not seem to be too much difference from .99....I have noticed one problem recently when charging my phone at night. I noticed that it appears to be charging but in the am when I go to work my phone is not charged, like I didn't even have it plugged in. I did a batt pull and it corrected it, or so I thought as it just happened again last night. Anyone else have this issue???

    First post on this forum. It's been great reading and learning.

    Upgraded to 103 from 76 (Telus official I believe) and here are my findings:

    • No real issues/problems EXCEPT for auto-dimming of the screen backlight - even though the option is turned off, it still does it in the browser and other places
    • Definitely a snappier overall navigation experience, scrolling appears faster, browser is faster
    • No lockups, resets or anything of that nature
    • No longer get a charge indicator (the bolt across the battery meter) when charging through USB but the battery IS still charging
    • Had to delete and re-add all email accounts (BIS) to get new message indicator (red star) back on the Messages folder icon of the home screen
    • Typing appears about the same to me, but I'm not really a serious typer on this thing


    Overall it's been a definite improvement over the stock Telus OS version with no detrimental issues.

    If anyone knows what the auto-dimming issue may be please let me know as it gets a little annoying when reading longer web pages etc. (I do have it turned off in the settings but it's still doing it).

    I fastidiously followed the how-to tutorial to get this new version on my BB Storm. Boy, was I scared to do it! However, I felt it necessary because it began to clock more and more. OK...enough of my install...

    Here's my observations (randomly):
    1) Horz/Vert orientation is quicker
    2) Vert full keyboard (has all the keys of the horz keyboard) is a welcome addition
    3) Transparent camera info bar/shooter button is nice as we can now see the whole picture
    4) Restore of previous apps during installation did not work, but manually it worked
    5) After install, I pulled battery and reinserted as others suggested...just in case
    6) Needed to enter some passwords again...no biggie
    7) Slacker starts up way quicker, shuts down 1000x faster, too! But Pause doesn't work!
    8) Browser loads approximately the same
    9) Screen text seems just at readable as before.

    I'm glad I put this on my phone. Next, I'll have to do the wifey's phone, too.

    Hey guys,

    This is my first post. The Storm is my first Blackberry, and actually my first smartphone ever. I got it a few weeks ago and liked it, but as soon as I got home, I found .90 and upgraded. It was striaight, but .99 was as lot better when that came out. I was expecting another good upgrade, but for some reason, .103 is not very good to me. The accelerometer is slow, and it freezes a lot. I've had to do 4 battery pulls for no reason. The phone froze on me while it was just chilling charging. I'm probably gonna go back to .99 unless I read the threads about .106 and hear it's good.

    This was a random thing that happened to me once running .99. It hasnt happened since. Another person experienced the same thing.

    It was wierd. I got the lightening bolt and assumed it was charging. It was not. I plugged it in the next AM and charged fine. One of those freak things I guess.

    The enter button (while on a website) is now a green "go" button. With older versions, if you click the menu button, and go to options, and make a change (ie: 2 rows of icons to 3), and click the menu button again and select save, I was not able to get back into the options menu from the menu button without having to pop the battery. I could, however, make a change in the options, and click the back button and save, and it would allow me back into options. With this new version, I can make changes and save either way, and still be able to get back into the menu options without having to pop the battery. HooRay!!

    Well, Knock on wood...I just upgraded, it was SEAMLESS. Obviously my first post so hello everyone. I will post more if I find any issues. Every app I had returned without flaw, no browser issues, not even a battery pull yet. Thanks to all the guides that were posted that helped tremendously!

    Yea this happened to me this morning. Last night i put my phone on the charger before i went to sleep and it showed a lightning bolt, but when i woke up the chrarge was still the same and this was after 8 hours of being on the charger. I did a battery pull, but i haven't tested it again to see if it changed.

    I moved from .75 to .103 and the Storm works better in every way. The accelerometer is faster than the 3G iPhone, and the overall use in every application is snappier. This is definitely a good build. I have 0 battery drain issues as well.

    I was dissapointed today in a meeting when I went to put the phone on vibrate only it didn't work. In .75, when the phone was locked, I could hold down the mute button for a couple seconds and it would switch to vibrate only. It was very handy. Doesnt seem to work in .103

    I installed .103 two days ago. I noticed the first day my battery was draining faster than usual. I chalked it up and didn't think too much of it. The next day (yesterday), my phone died 3 hrs after having a full charge. WTF....So I went to my VZW experience store just to see if it I get a new battery figuring that was the problem. However when they put it on the charger for like 20mins. It would power up all the way...So, I got a Brand New Storm

    All in all I think .103 does have a battery conflict issue from my experience and from what others have said....
