    Unhappy OS 6.0.0.499 For the Bold 9700 - What are we testing for?

    Honestly, I am somewhat sceptical about all these "leaked" sotware patches or upgrades. As a QA Software Tester, it is "difficult" to test or comment on any software upgrades when you don't know what you are testing for. Without a log of the supposed fixes, how do you really know if an issue has been adressed and fixed? Anybody can complain of "battery leaks" or other stuff, but there are so many variables that can make any hardware to act up, and this may not even have anything to do with the "fixes". I just wonder what we are really testing !!!

    That is just exactly what I mean Jimmy2Bob. We can't be of any help to these developers if we don't know what we should be looking out for.

    Seriously, I have also installed and "tested" most of these "leaks" but I don't know wheather anything is working or not because not sure what to look for. Of course I can make up any story and complain about everything about version .499, and this would not be of any help the the software developers. If this is what beta testing is all about then it sucks!!

    Well I had a bit battery issue, among others, with the previous leak. It died in less then 2 days. Now it lasts atleast a day longer even with wifi on and more use of BBM and internet.

    On the other hand, I do agree, I have no furry clue what Im looking for unless something is wrong. Like the battery issue.
    If the next leak gives me the same preformances I wouldnt know what changed...
    Most of the times a week or 2 after the "leak" an official comes but it's the same anyway but with a vendorfile.
    I do think it has to de with the fact we are using a 9700, just to little memory remaing and all.
