    I just DL'ed the latest OS software update to my Torch this morning. I did it OTA using the 3G network. The entire process took approx. 45-55 minutes with a few reboots. I have to say I am floored at how much faster my phone is running now. I am no longer experiencing lags between apps / screens and the phone seems to be running a lot smoother. I'd love to know what RIM included in this update as it has completely changed my impression of this device. If the Torch would've launched with this version of the OS, I'm sure the reviews would've been a lot better! Anyone else feel the same way?

    Thanks for the info. I'm a BB newb and I just got this update this morning, so I thought it might've just released today.

    Installed it on my Torch a couple days ago, and it really seemed to speed things up a bit. Scrolling is alot smoother. I also bought a program called "Memory Up Pro" and installed it. Pretty slick little Ram Optomizing program.

    It runs in the background and removes unused dll's from memory to keep your Ram clean, and it also forces the system to use Lage cache. And, ya can set it up the way ya want it to run. Anybody else use a Ram optomizing program?

    Try ControlBBanel. Cleans memory on demand so that it is not running in the background. Memory optimizers are fine but alot of them take up room in addition to resources running the background.

    Uhm, not even sure what to say to that except it does none of those things and with 512mb on the Torch an app like that isnt going to do you any good except drain your battery.

    So I just decided to try ControlBBanel... Didn't like it. Deleted it. Only to realise it deleted all my third party apps with it...

    UGH.

    Guess it didn't like the fact that I didn't like it.

    Thanks for the reply. Read the writeup on it and that's what it said it did.In the settings, You can set it to force to use large cache and remove unused dll's.
    Figured I'd give it a try. Appreciate your input. I'll see if it drags down the battery, and if so, I'll just uninstall it. Sounded like a good Idea.

    The most current AT&T OS6 for the Torch is much quicker, though my icons seems to be wandering 1 by 1...

    I downloaded my update OTA with Edge/3G and it took about a couple of hours. I have absolutely no complaints...and I would agree with you on that if AT&T/RIM would've sold the Torch with it, reviews would have been what they should've been in the first place. Before I updated the software, my Torch froze when expanding and moving between the menus. I have not seen that happen at all...PLUS I love having an incoming phone call while on the phone with another person...all those options!

    Its called the distortion field. Aka BS marketing. First BB's dont use DLLs. Second there is no technical way using the BB API to do anything like increase "cache" it is IMPOSSIBLE. They are dependent on the placebo effect. The BB OS strictly limits what 3rd party apps are able to do with memory.
