Bold 9930 on Verizon. 7.1 Bundle 2879 latest version.
Broke most of my apps.
Google Maps won't stay logged in. I log in and it logs me out within 10 seconds.
Even logged out it takes much longer to find my location.
Fandango won't accept location either manually or gps location search
The previously very good Podcast app is completely broken and gone. It looks like it's there but when lauched it only brings up previously saved podcasts. No search or download function available at all.
Anyone else have their phone broken like this? It's happened before with previous updates which is why I hesitated to do the update but the problems were not as severe and eventually resoved. This time It's made the device almost useless as, other than email and text, these now broken apps are what I most use.
I've tried to find a way to downgrade to the previous versioin but can find no way to do it as yet. The instructions given are unavailable on my device (Verizon issue maybe).
Thanks for any thoughts.

Verizon updates have screwed up 2 of my phones, DONT USE THEM! You can easily downgrade your software by downloading BlackBerry desktop software from the blackberry website. Once installe click update software/ load preivious versions then install your previous version. I hope this helps.

1. No you are not the only blackberry/verizon user, i am one. 2. Verizons update screwed up the hardware on your phone, bring it to your nearest verizon store and explan to them that you used there software and it destroyed your bb. tell them that you tried a hard reset, that is what reloading the software did, also tell them that you contacted blackberry support (me) and bb support told you that the verizon update screwed up your phone ( i am telling you that right now). I know verizon, they have given me a warranty replacement for every phone i or they screwed up, they should replace your BlackBerry for free. Let me know what they say.
