I was just going to ask about this..I think i'm going to try .230There is now a full leak for the Storm 5.0.230 OS. I've been running the previous .230 for about a week and am happy with it. The new version of Blackberry Messenger does not work with it - so make sure to do a backup of your clients for when it is released. It includes the previous version and works fine.
There are some small bugs but nothing that has driven me crazy.
Ok so I did it and installed .230. Man is it slick. Only weird thing that happened is when I restored my data, all my emails were gone. At least I thought they were gone..they are all showing up in my "messages" folder and not the actual email folder.The only bug that I'm encountering is the default agenda view in the calendar jumps to the wrong date when I first open it - I just leave my calendar open now, and use the end key instead of escape when I'm done with it.
It includes BBM (most refer to it as version 4.7) it will automatically delete the 5.0 version if its already installed. Do a backup from within BBM5 so you can restore it easily when it eventually gets released.
I've been using .230 since it first came out over a week ago and would recommend it - but check out crackberry to see if theres any programs that might be incompatible. I don't care about the memory monitoring and reset programs because they aren't needed anymore.
ya it's gmail.Is your email a gmail account? If so, thats the new enhanced gmail plugin - it only shows mail that has arrived since the install but allows you to search remotely, apply labels & spam etc.
Another thing i noticed.. i'm charging with my usb and the lightning bolt is gone on the battery icon. I can't tell if it's charging or not! Boo!3G isn't showing on Bell or Telus. Must be something to do with service books.
I don't care either way about that though - their speeds are generally faster than Rogers' "3G" and its pretty much just a marketing term that they missed the boat on.

.230 is def buggy on this front. But I still do love this new OS.On .230 my charging icon is sometimes there and sometimes not
I'm sure its charging though - its not running out any earlier than normal.
What version of software are you running? Check out http://forums.crackberry.com/f61/ and try out a different OS. The 8830 is still supported and updated, even though you might not get OS5.I think my 8830 is dying. Battery pull is necessary twice a day. It has been good to me but I need it to hold out until Jan/Feb when I am pretty sure work will unload new hardware on us. I'm not buying my own device and I am loathe to use my backup phone: .......................................I don't even want to type what it is it is sooooo horrible.
ok i unplugged and plugged back in..230 is def buggy on this front. But I still do love this new OS.
I don't think it's charging...the phone usually feels warm when charging and it's pretty cold.
and it is badass!BBM 5.0 officially released.
