    I have posted this question a couple of times in the ".85 Release Information and Discussion Only" thread but it gets buried in "are we there yet?" posts so I thought I'd start a separate thread as the question is important, at least for me anyway.

    I have seen conflicting info on when to wipe when upgrading the OS, ranging from every time, to every 3 or 4 upgrades (CX), or never.

    To my uneducated mind, analogizing to Windows OS upgrades, a clean install is better than an upgrade install. Therefore I wipe. Is my analogy faulty?

    Also, is there any downside to wiping, other than of course the time it takes?

    Thanks. Jeff

    That was my theory behind it, until I thought about it longer..

    My thinking is that these OS's build off of each other so I down graded to the .75 after a wipe then deleted the files from the computer and installed the .83 files to the computer then my phone.

    ..it seemed to go a lot longer before I had any issues then the previous times..

    I wipe because I have OCD when it comes to my BB...
