    Who actually likes .607? I've had nothing but problems with it and it SUCKS!

    I love my Storm, and I love BlackBerry, and it sucks that ****ty programming is ruining such a useful device. .607 has slowed my performance down completely, the keyboard lags like 5 words behind my actual typing, battery life sucks now, gps doesn't work sometimes, it freezes up completely and I have to do battery pulls, my SMS messages lock up all the time, and certain messages will disappear and the convo will jump all over the place...

    Why did they even upgrade? What good came from the upgrade to .607? And that's a real question too... Does anybody actually prefer .607 over the previous OS? I mean, I was perfectly happy with what I had before...

    I'm using Tank's Act 3 which has been great so far. The messaging bug is really annoying though (the virtual keyboard doesn't show up if you open a message, unless done through the app itself like Google Talk).

    To many random quirks in .607.
    I have not tried the .517 even though I have it. Just that whole getting all my apps working again is a pain! But with the iheart radio issue I am thinking of trying it.
    .607 and my theme do refresh the home screen well, .320 only refreshed after a desktop sync. That's the only positive.

    .607 is garbage. .517 is much better. Especially with a hybrid over top. Mmmm

    I agree about the .517 hybrid. I installed just last night and I cannot believe how much better by battery life is and how fast everything else is....totally amazing!

    I have no problems with .607 with that said I'm always game for a new leak.

    My only complaint is the longer reboot time. Other than that no issues whatsoever.

    While I liked the updates in .607, I rolled back to .320 because a bunch of the 3rd party apps didn't work properly with it.

    Am no longer annoyed by the quirks in Opera Mini, QuickPull and Storm Slider.

    Would love to be on a newer OS, but at least I feel like everything 'works' now as opposed to be partially broken.

    I rolled back to 517. Not sure why VZN accepted this POS, but they do need to get on the ball about releasing a proper OS.

    you know, I dont have a problem with .607 in any area accept for the keyboard not popping up for BBM and some native client chats. I been getting a pretty big memory leak as of late but I still havent figured out if .607 is the culprit. So for now, the keyboard is the only known flaw. But for me, its a pretty big flaw for me and prevents me from approving of this OS. The click with .320 was bad down below, but at least the keyboard came up when I needed it! So far, the .517 leak was the best I've used.

    Did the same thing. Then found a hybrid and bumped it up to .580. No issues with this build.

    The apps that I had problems with have all been updated at this point, so I'm pretty happy with 607 now.

    I like .607 pretty well. I really can't compare it to previous versions though, as I just got my S2 April 20th, and it was already loaded with .607. I haven't had any issues with it so far.
