Version 7 bugs

Are all (or most) of the bugs worked out of version 7 software? I tried it and had issues, but admit the issues may NOT have been due to version 7. Just wondered what the consensus was.

Re: Version 7 bugs


Well, If you mean to compare OS6 to OS7, that would not be a fair comparison IMHO. Just as the change from OS5 to OS6 was a major change, so too is the change to OS7. As such, while it may well fix some things from OS6, there may well be an entirely new bug list for things newly introduced in OS7. Then, there was OS7.1, which was yet another major change (though perhaps not as great as that from OS6).

Further, there are many different versions within each major OS release. One can assume that the newer the release (e.g., the higher the number in the final octet), the more bugs have been fixed. But, there is always the possibility that new bugs can be introduced along the way.

All in all, it is difficult to find any official information concerning things fixed in any version...the carriers hold responsibility for release of such ChangeLogs, and are notoriously lax at doing so!

Good luck!

PS - depending on your actual issues, your are completely correct that they may or may not even be OS version related.

Occam's Razor nearly always applies when troubleshooting technology issues!

Re: Version 7 bugs

  I agree I find each upgrade in my OS usually is better then the last one. I think if you have 7.1 available to you you should do it. If you do be sure you back up both on your computer and using BB Protect. If you don't have BB Protect, get it it's free and set it to back up everyday. Oh and don't do an over the air update, do it on line thru your USB and desktop comp.
