    Installed on my 9700 last night. Seems to be a pretty good release so far. Haven't noticed any big improvements or negatives on this build. One thing that did happen to my phone was it stopped synching my calendar with GMail but I can't say with 100% certainty that it was a result of the OS upgrade. I removed the gmail account and added it again and synching has resumed.

    Yea, Gmail synching probably not the OS but how the app reacted.

    This build might be a battery hog. I installed the free photo editor app and this build at the same time and my battery life has reduced drastically - battery dropped 20% over night when I wasn't using the phone. Removed the app and gonna keep an eye on it for the next 48 hours. I'll report back.

    Sounds like the first time you upgraded the process did not finish properly. I would suggest reinstalling with a wipe and install.

    Thanks, hopefully it's just something to do with the app and can be fixed in a update.

    Looks like it was the photo editor app that was smoking my battery. Only down 4% overnight last night.

    Whow, that huge. Have you emailed them about it? Maybe it's a common issue they are dealing with.

    I haven't emailed them but I will. Funny thing is, this is the second of the complimentary apps that RIM has offered that has been an enormous battery hog - the first one was Bubble Bash 2. They may be free, but apparently there is a price to pay in the end.

    Seems like the complimentary apps aren't getting the attention they should.

    I don't know of another way to reinstall the calculator unless you redo the OS install.

    i've installed this since its release and encountered an issue where the thumbnails in Pictures would no longer generate. All pictures that were taken before the upgrade have their thumbnails intact. But new images dont have thumbnails. Anyone know how to fix this?

    That's strange. Have you tried a battery pull restart?
