Problems with OS

Since updating my Playbook to OS on Wednesday I have had all sorts of problems with Blackberry Bridge. It started with everytime I tried to open say BBM it would ask for my phones password, when I entered this the screen would flash, it would look like it was connecting and then it would come up with a padlock symbol and ask for the password again. I have since done a couple of re starts which has improved it but it still isn't 100%. I notice this update seems to be causing a few issues looking at this forum.

I hope you did a back up of your palybook before you installed the update, becuase if you did you could have just rolled back the update and waiting for BlackBerry to respond to the bugs.


I had also installed the new update and use BlackBerry bridge on a daily basis and I have not come across any types of problems

Re: Problems with OS

My issues have been with very fast battery drain. I haven't had the issues with Bridge that you mentioned and the system seems to run a bit faster with the browser and opening pages in the internet. I am trying to work out the battery drain with a few more restarts, and maybe factory wipe and update with the computer rather than OTA. Will let you know if anything has improved or become worse.

Re: Problems with OS

Browser will not stream video since update keeps freezing. Never did that before update.
