Hey all.... I'm new here, not to BB, not even to BB Forums (you may have seen me on CB), but I'm VERY excited to be a VIP and this site is great!
I was on .113 before, and after hearing so much about these Crackman hybrids I decided to try it out! Everything went VERY smoothly... thanks for the install program so I don't have to delete specific files.
I have done several battery pulls and found everything to be working well. I do have the video camera issue mentioned earlier in this thread, but it works so I'm not complaining. My first phone call (receiving) the screen showing who was calling didn't appear until the 3rd ring, just OS warming up I suppose. The first outgoing call (to vm) I couldn't push numbers. I hung up and tried again and it works fine now.
Everything else is great... see my sig for apps running and I'm getting 50.5 MB free after battery pull, down to about 43 now.
Its great, I'm happy, updating my bf's storm tonight

BBC, I am going to start all over. Wipe, Hybrid V4, restore backup, restore apps, three 60 second pulls. Since I am on Tmobile, how long should I wait for the OS to settle? I first installed V4 and reception was awesome and EDGE worked for a few days and then it started switching again between edge and EDGE. I like this radio because of the reception I got out of it. I was getting reception is places I could hardly get signals from. But since it started switching later on I went back to .90 radio. It works on keeping EDGE but reception is not as good. O what to do. Just looking for opinions. Any help is appreciated of course.

It usually takes a few (2-3) days for the OS to settle in. I would at least give it that before you make a decision on which route to go.

hrmm... had a full charge at 6 and i'm down to 80% at 9 with very very little usages, this has been the only hybrid that has drained the battery this much but like I said before i'll give it another few days. Everything else is rocking, love it BBC as always

I am still having lock ups in music. Also rotation is sporadic. Works really good then I am banging on the phone. Password is a nightmare. Sometimes to get it to give y ou the log in page, you have to hold the hang up hard key for 10-20 seconds.
Over all, big improvement. Thanks CM
