    desktop application - although seems to be a repeat of messages application
    today - can be selected thru homescreen options
    home screen preferences - advanced with previews
    during upgrade they have changed the icon depicting the blackberry as firmware apps are being loaded
    a stack of demo games to trial. or not if you want to save valuable memory!

    good:

    rsa token works
    quickpull free works
    slicker faster upgrade (i think!)
    seems more fluid a version...accelerometer might be improved....
    memory now at 37mb...was about 31 on 230

    bad:

    google in browser app still doesnt work
    sms\desktop apps cannot be merged into just using "messages". You could do this before via messages apps options. now you are forced to have sms and messages and desktop - 3!!
    keybd ghosting gone - why introduce to only then remove it? Is this feature enabled on storm2's? wondered if rim has decided its a storm2 only feature now.
    landscape view on non-precision zen themes. Anything other than the official rim theme seems to try to landscape the portrait background and you get the white bars and icons start to corrupt as you scroll up and down. This is annoying as other themes were fine on 216 and 230.

    overall a good version but the theme, 3x message applications, and continuing google fail is really irritating!
    Thank you for detailed feedback!!! As far as themes go, the new theme builder 5 was just released so themes will start being updated and from what I read, it fixes the landscape issue and also adds lanscape homescreens!

    Haha, I hope you are correct and it an exe file. I have seen similar posts for Verizon - albeit sarcastic posts maybe....

    Help!, how do I...? (5.0.0.328)

    Is there any way to get the old 4.7 style input screen back for the Email and SMS..

    I find this new one too cluttered..., I just want to see what I'm typing and not a load of old messgaes in the background...? mfg:

    Other thing that drives me bonkers is when you are trying to type in.., it keeps suggesting stuff and trying to guess what word I'm going to put in... I've turned just about everything off, but it's still doing it....

    Any help on both of the above would be much appreaciated....

    The new sms layout is the threaded sms, so that is in the OS. It will take a little to get used to.

    Predictive typing can be turned off by going to options icon> language and input> input options> and uncheck predictive text.

    Everythings cool since I've been working with the 328, except the links in my emails (only copy and paste) but please, dear Hybrid creators, bring back the 216 or 230 keyboard with the PopUp keys

    :aargh4:

    Thanks olta.., that's what has got me a bit...

    I have turned off the predictive text.., but it still seems to be doing it.., in fact I've turned everything off, just in case..., but I cant get rid of it...

    I wiped the phone before installing 5.0.0.328, and I don't use any apps.., nothing else installed...
