I have had to turn most things off and to use it largely only as a phone. May as well get a low end device. RIM has lost the plot.

Don't blame you. I was tempted to switch to the iPhone4S or an Android in December but stuck to a Blackberry when my old Bold died. I was an early adopter of mobile phones more years ago than I care to remember. My first was an Excel (UK make) then I had Nokias for years (and loved them). It took me a while to switch to a Blackberry as the phone was lousy for anthing other than e-mail. Eventually I got a Pearl and loved it and stuck to Blackberry since then.
Time for change again. As soon as I can get out of my Vodafone contract, this phone goes.

So, first of all: re. the tweeting. Someone had replied to one of my tweets and asked me what operating system I had. I had no idea what the significance was then. After all this, well, I get it.
I'm finally ready to do the upgrade. I got Mike Scully's email with the link.
My question is: If I don't do a complete wipe with a reload of the apps, am I still going to see a difference? I have nothing against doing the full wipe/app reloading, except I really don't know what I'm doing, so I didn't want to risk completely screwing up the phone.
I noticed a def decrease in battery consumption when I'm @ home on Wi-fi and since the battery saver was deleted. Also, I see random days when the battery seems to be a lot better (i.e. 15hrs before it dies, as opposed to the 6-8hrs I usually get) except I can't figure out what's different. Actually, it seems to follow the rule that if I don't need the phone, the battery's better (even with heavier use), and when I need it (i.e. at work, or out and about), the phone dies in stand-by. So, maybe RIM included a bug in there to monitor when I need the phone just to piss me off. Or maybe Rogers is sucking all the juice with its coverage.
Also, what's up with having 100% battery life and within two minutes, down to 92%. Just for no reason.
