    I'm on .90. Fastest so far. My OS resets itself at least once a day, no BT in video, camera needs to zoom passed 1.0, but I stopped having VSOD after downgrading and re-upgrading. So I deal until .111 or later is released.

    After reading the replies and the critiques of .103, I think I'm gonna hold off as well. It doesn't seem as if the improvements are worth the effort - especially the reports of the decreased battery life.

    I would rate my usage (emails, texting, bbm) as normal. Even on .99, by the end of the work day, I'm at less than half power. I do keep the GPS on for apps like weatherbug and poynt, so I don't expect a full battery at the end of the day, but I would say the battery power is below normal, and hopefully can be addressed in future builds. I can't afford to move to a higher build and have a dead phone before I get home at the end of the day.

    I'll wait for the next release and see what it brings.....

    I'm on .90. So far I haven't read anything that would make me move to 103

    Since no one will reply to my question on the fonts for the KB's (and that is a huge one for me) then I will hold off.

    I'm sticking with .99 for now. 103 doesn't seem like an improvement from reading the posts.

    I wouldn't get too attached to the big ugly font of .90.

    Fonts are the same as .99. Not as big as .90.

    I love it no issues once I reinstalled all 3rd party apps. When I loaded 3rd party apps from a backup I had horible battery life. Now its all good.

    Like anything if its working for you as is don't change it.

    No nasalpancho, you're not the only one. I came really close to installing 0.103 but, since I've got everything running so well on 0.99, I just couldn't force myself to do it. The only major issue I have with 0.99 is rapid memory loss which is easily remedied with a BP every other day (wish that worked on me).

    If some compelling reason jumps out from all the .103 posts, I may go ahead, but I haven't seen one yet.

    I am running .103 but will go back to .99 as soon as I get a chance. Many people are saying how much they like .103 but IMO .99 was way better.

    I too am on BES which limits my upgrading frequency. I am running .99 and it is great other than typing lag and memory loss. A battery pull fixes the memory and the typing lag isn't a huge deal.

    Heck, I'm still on .75. My Storm has worked well since day one, so I've been hesitant to go with any of the leaks. Even now that I've added a few Themes to my Storm, it's still running great on .75. But it does make me wonder how much BETTER it might be if I tried an upgrade. Hopefully an official OS comes out SOON, and I won't be tempted to go with the leaks.

    I decided not to once I realized the insiders weren't exactly impressed by it. Judging from people's reactions in the impressions thread, they were right. Oh well...

    Nope, you're certainly not the only one.

    .99 is working pretty darn well for me - not a single random reboot (to my knowledge - it could happen in the middle of the night while I'm asleep, but I've not seen one). The reports of severely decreased battery life have kept me from trying .103.

    I, also, still use .99. .103 doesn't seem like it really offers any advantages.

    its my opinion that if your phone works well on one build , it will work on another....

    i too had ZERO problems with .75 (just slow) and have upgraded to almost every leak with only minimal bugs. Nothing major like you see alot of people posting on here. I have very good luck with all of them.

    .99 and .103 are definetly the fastest/best ones....i'd upgrade if i were you

    Yep- exact same boat as you. I was considering but haven't had the time to sit down and actually do it. Seems not much has changed from .99 anyway...

    I was on.75 and finally made the jump to .103. Best thing I have ever done. I havent had any problem with the battery. I do not have any third party apps on the phone... yet.

    I'm sticking with .99. It's been working great, much better than .75 and with all the negative comments so far on .103, it just doesn't seem worth the jump.

    Initially I installed .103 over top of .75 and the phone ran awful. I wiped with JL Commander reinstalled .103 and now it runs like a champ. I highly recommend giving .103 shot. My battery life has improved tremendously with it too.

    103 and 99 aren't all that much different... .90 was a pig though.
