Wait and Pause. For entering things like calling cards you would enter "18005555555W1p1234p1"
Dialing that would call 1800555555 then wait until you press SEND which would press 1 then pause for a second then automatically enter your password 1234 then pause again for a second then 1. Good for calling cards, voicemail passwords, banking info etc.
The feature has always been there but usually you access it by holding down *, 0 or # depending on the phone.
Yeah I did install it over .323 because I wanted to start my phone from complete scratch. I only restored my messages - everything else, all options etc I redid. Calendar, phone book and tasks etc were synced from Outlook.
For some reason with .323 I had only 20MB free memory but now with .328 I have 35MB, after installing all the same programs.
I don't notice any improvements over .323 except that voice activated dialing works properly again - and its still the new version of it.
I installed it last night and have used it all day and only just now have read the forums at crackberry.com to see people complaining. I have had almost NONE of the problems brought up - I'm convinced its because bringing the backups from previous OS will make the new one not work properly (especially from 4.7). There are just too many new features or moved menus for the backups to work properly.
And I say almost none because I don't consider the small visual glitches to be a problem. I don't care that the first icon is squished vertically, I don't care that it says 1XEV and not 3G, I don't believe the icons and pictures are pixelated etc.
I'm very happy with this OS and its pretty safe to say I'm not going to spend even a dollar to "upgrade" to the Storm2 - unless perhaps Telus surprises us all and launches a HSPA version of it. Not worth the money for only wifi because I have unlimited data for $15.
OS 5.0 is pretty slick...held out as usual until it got officially released. Digging the ability to set follow up flags on messages and sync to Outlook, as well as the new IM style UI for text messages and general UI enhancements
I picked up a CDMA Storm2 in December because I have a lot of friends with coverage issues with Telus/Bell's new HSPA network - also, there isn't a touchscreen BlackBerry available yet for that network.
Out of the box its everything I wanted from my original Storm. Its dual processor with proper graphics acceleration and is very fast at everything - no lag in accelerometer etc.
The screen is such an improvement over the original. It took about 2 minutes to completely dismiss the Storm1 - it was a prototype and should never have been released as it was
I pretty much forget the differences between OS 4.7 and 5.0 because I had a leaked version on my Storm for so long.
So my friend got himself the 9700 and it is great but every time he unholsters it it goes into his email right away. Is this a setting in the phone that can be changed so it just stays on the main screen instead of displaying his email?
