Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


@www. Glad you have got RIM themselves to access it, will be very interesting to see what comes out of it.

Btw, I wouldny be surprised if it comes back with 7.1 on it. The only people that could tell you to downgrade is your network, and the way the OS issues have been I don't think that would happen. Smiley Happy

Good luck and keep us updated please.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

I sure do hope they load the latest 7.1 on there but .190 isn't officially released yet, just a leak, is it?

Either case I am looking forward to see what the phone will come back with. I will keep all you guys informed.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

This update would apply to me, or I already benefit from the latest version for my 9930?

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


I hate to dissagree but that was just a release notification, people will only get the update when their carriers have tested the software and approved it.

Should be by next month hopefully.

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life

Ifraser, but people without a locked phone can go on the RIM site to get upgraded, no?

I am wondering if the offical announcement if 7.1.0.190 says specifically to the batt improvement? Or just a blurp saying 7.1 gor released but doesnt mention anything else?

Re: Bold 9900 Battery Life


Usually RIM don't release update for phones. You would have to get it from the company you bought it from, or a leak, my handset came from a 3rd party supplier, not my network. But I can choose to install my networks software if I wish.

I am trying to find out if .190 is the release candidate of if the carriers have a newer version again. Lol
