    Maybe. No wait i doubt it. The mypin trick works on 4.5 devices so it should work on 4.6 no matter the OS. Yeah 250 is NICE.
    Well... I feel like quite a nerd feeling euphoric about learning the Alt-shift-H combi ;-)
    And am very happy with this BB (webfont size might not be perfect for some but my eyesight is good so love the full pages)
    Only thing that worries me is the batterylifetime (could be 'cause I've been playing with it all day, but goes really really fast)

    X happy girl

    I've found battlife to vary greatly between myself and my other friends with the 8900. I'm on .250 and get about 9 hours with very heavy use. MP3s, BBM, MSN, the works. Another friend of mine running .250 as well get a whole 2 days. Mainly with emails, calls and IMs.

    Either way .250 is the best OS for the 8900 in a a while

    What is better about the .250 than .231?

    Hey...
    thats a good question about which os, .250 or .231, is better.
    I upgraded to .250 through desktop manager and some how my
    blackberry usb was disconnected. The phone has froze on reload software: 507. My service provider suggested that i download .231
    They sent me a berry... so i think the safe bet is to stay with 2.31.

    Then I guess its an OS differance.
    I'm using 4.6.1.168 because I just got this one and left my micro-usb cable at work (have 4.6.1.250 downloaded and waiting to be abused)

    What do you think of .250 OS. What does it have that you didn't have previously. I've got .231 on my 8900 and being new, have no clue whether I should upgrade now, wait for 5.0 or what. I think 5.0 is slated to come out in late summer, August Maybe?

    dude you definitely need the Crackberry 101 series - do a search for it - but you can press the ALT and Shift Key (bottom left or bottom right) with one hand, and H with the other.
    LOL, only if you are coordinated. It took me forever to be able to do control-alt-delete on a computer. Oh but I can do it now, LOL. Some of us are just not as coordinated. And going the options route is way easier for those of us who are uncoordinated.
