    Got my issue resolved..

    Had to have our BES guy put in our domain into some MDS policy which then made my requests for internal webpages go thru the Blackberry Browser.

    Battery life !!!!

    I have been running OS 6 280 in my Verizon Bold. My only complaint about my Blackberry has been the battery life. With OS 6 280 it was the same until one day I accidentally disabled my Wi-Fi, and ladies and gentleman in this forum, what a big difference.

    When I was running various OS5 and OS6 280 my battery life was poor. By 6PM my battery was down to the last notch with moderate use.
    Now with Wi-Fi disable by 6PM my battery life is 75%.

    What does this means? Means that if you want to extend your battery life for the day and don't have a real need for the Wi-Fi you can disable it .

    Looks like Wi-Fi is always scanning for Hot-Spots and this is consuming the life of the battery quickly.

    Give it a try, you don't have anything to lose. Disable your Wi-Fi for one day and you'll see the difference it is going to make in regards to the life of your battery. This is a quick fix until RIM figures out a way on how to get rid of this bug.

    There are several good apps out there that will automatically turn off Wi-Fi if your not in a remembered location.

    Really? Remember what they're called? That's definitely something I could use...

    I can say I've tried OS 6.0.0.222, .280 and .333 (twice). the .333 release does appear to be more stable (for me anyway) than the other two leaked versions. I also suffered less lag time using .333. I did not notice any other differences with the versions, other than this.

    I had issues with Facebook and Twitter apps not working with all three versions. The apps worked after initial download/update but it seemed that whenever I left my house (wifi zone) and later returned, I received error messages that indicated I had no data plan - contact my carrier. I deleted the apps, reinstalled them and they worked again.

    After reinstalling those two apps about 8 times while running .333, I went back to OS 5.0 (shocking, huh?).

    I decided to try the .333 leaked version again yesterday. So far, so good regarding lags and app issues. I have left my wifi comfort zone and returned, and Facebook and Twitter seem to be working fine. This could be due to recent updates made to those apps.

    I communicate with other OS 6 users and the general consensus is that if you want to try OS 6 - use the .333 leak. The other two are not as stable. I will add that the battery life using OS 6 does stink. I don't recall ever having to charge my phone mid day prior to today. But, the OS and internet does seem faster and you get upgraded camera functionality - so, weigh the cost of those.

    It's called Battery Booster and available on the online store here.

    It has several features but the ability to turn off Wi-Fi once out of range was what I used it for most.

    A big con is the browser won't load in the background. ARG.
