Blocked email.  It turns out my hosting provider had done something funny to email so I haven't been getting them lately.


Can you please try resending the invite, or if they are generic, can someone else send the message to [removed personal information]

@fishbytes, read back a few posts to where Zymatic points out we've missed our chance, if we haven't already gotten the invite.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

I received the invite as well, and I was quickly able to login and add the PIN. But I didn't received the update. I emailed the support guys, and they followed up, asking for PIN again.

Today, I received an email telling me that the beta is over already.

Hmm... too short time for a beta. I hope it doesn't have many bugs.

chall3ng3r - I believe what the email meant was that it was closed to new participants, not that the actual beta testing period was over.   Atleast thats how I understood it when I read it.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

Still worth while to get the PIN assigned correctly. This will allow you/us to get beta versions a week before release in the future. It is good that this is finally in place so we dont get OS updates at the same time as the consumers. But it also points out that once the beta is available, we only have about a week or two to test before the consumers have it.

Re: Any one get access to Playbook Beta OS 1.0.6?

I've read through the topic and I'm a little confused Smiley Happy I didn't receive an invite either, so here's my obligatory "I didn't get one post."


Seeing as there are no more betas being sent out, can anyone tell me:


1 - Is this topic just for the current beta? Or now that I've replied is it likely I'll get an invite to the next beta?

2 - I already have a Beta Zone account with the same email address. I've added my PlayBook details to my profile, but is this going to be a problem?

Oh, great. I just discovered that I cannot sign up for the beta zone from Spain.

"We're sorry, the application form is not yet available for your country. We are adding new country locations over time. Please be patient as we continue to expand across the globe.

And, I don´t know where to post this, but, it´s been very frustrating

5 minutes ago, I realized that my forum account hasn´t had the email validated. In fact, no email was linked to my account

So, I put my email again, and the forum said thatThis email has been permanently blocke

Has this happened to anyone else

Why do you hate me

Nice to meet you Smiley Happy
