Re: DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR BLACKBERRY!

Be warned! I just upgraded my OS and the phone deteted all my program registration info


That is normal for application licenses and registration. Happens every time, as you are essentially wiping the device.

However, that is not normal and I know others upgrading to this that have NOT experienced this.

You can restore your bookmarks from a previous backup, as well as your contacts.

If you would explain what about the one contact list that was wiped, we might be able to assist you in getting it restored, but I don't know the details.

Re: DO NOT UPGRADE YOUR BLACKBERRY!

Wow! Are you saying that your bookmarks, program registrations etc were NOT wiped out?

 

If so, guess it's just my bad luck. Sorry I got so upset. I still won't upgrade again tho.

 

Thanks,

Re: Latest 9800 OS: 6.0.0.666

Hiya people, does this update affect ALL torches (9800)? As I've read that its only for AT&T customers, and I'm on 02 in the UK. And what does this update do? Thanks in advance

Re: Latest 9800 OS: 6.0.0.666

What does it do? Well, it also wipes out all of your alarm and custom ring tones. They're still on your phone, but you have to one-by-one, set up your alarms and individual custom ring tones again. Speed dials for contacts....forget it, they're all gone.

 

I did find one improvement, but honestly, right now I can't remember what it is. Can anybody tell us what is improved with the new OS "upgrade"?

You should always before updating backup your device(takes about 1min) so that you would not have to set everything again way they were. 

I Have OS 6.0.0.600 and wanted to know if I should upgrade? Is it faster or does battery last longer or is there anything better than .600?

I have .600 and love it. However, one of my friends has upgraded to the .666 and says its the best OS yet, longer battery life and its faster. I have yet to give it a try.
