All my links between facebook and my contacts were gone...and cannot be restored. You have to start over.
anybody can comment on battery life?
you also lose the ability to make seperate icons for emails like bes.
There is no message list option in email settings...
I unfortunately will probably have to downgrade tomorrow because I got spoiled with a separate bes mailbox icon.
i didnt mention that these were actual issues, i havent installed this yet, but did a fair amount of reading of other peoples experiences and was trying to get some people to actively let us know about the experiences they had.
- SMS problem, fixed.
- Media player stops on incoming message. (not a huge deal for most)
- Seperate mailboxes, this option has disappeared (bad) but might be merged into "theme controlled" (but..I think it's more of a bug than new feature). If you had seperate mailboxes prior to 405, they seem to be seperate after you restore your backup.
- Battery life is great, been running for almost 48hrs, and still at 35%. (fair amount of calls, txts, email/pin, running FB, UberTwitter, general browsing, picture taking and viewing, etc.)
I don't see this being a carrier release due to the Media player and mailbox problem, just seems to basic to what berry's are all about (the mailbox thing).
I expect within the next couple weeks we will see another leak (seems fairly easy to assume this with the frequency of them lately).
I'm guessing we'll see something like.. 408-418 before xmas. (I'm *never* right )
ok I need some clarification on the media player issue.. here is what I did, I started a song playing, then sent me a text, then sent a email from another phone. Each time I heard the alert play but the music never stopped? I am running .405 so I am not getting what the issue is. the only time my media player stops is when i get a call then if resumes playing after the call...

Doesn't sound like an issue to me, those who are having this issue may have not done a full wipe before installing .405 , I need to get .405 on my 9700 and clear things up for everyone. I should be doing this tonight.
thats what I was thinking.. I did do a complete wipe before installing it, so maybe that was the difference. I dont see any issues... but there is always one of me in the crowd then huh

Anyways...my sincerest apologies for the confusion.
Addition: Yes, I did a complete wipe (507 and all) via BBSAK.
Edit: This bug seems to be fixed around 188.8.131.52x

Must just be a stability release of the old 5.0 branch.
Most addons in this release are old.
I believe 405 was the release that upon device reboot would crash the phone app (not a big deal, just an annoying message anytime you rebooted the device).
