IMHO, .656 and .680 are equally as good as .593 and do not restrict voicemail speaker support.

    I've only been on .680 for about 40 hours but so far .680 has a good battery management profile.

    Lastly with regard to the "use search and look it up" comment in the original post, this is a popular tactic on that "other site" where children run loose trying to rack up big post counts so they can feel they are important on that "other site." Personally, while it's true that that other site does have some good content contributions, it is also absolutely full of some of the most immature members on the Net. I pray this site always retains its "more adult" tone.

    i see ur prob, as i aswell am an WM user- but i'm a BB user also for the past 2-3 years..
    Concedering the probs u have, my thoughts r that ur device didn't respond well to the new OS- for reasons unknown... I would suggest some of the previous versions, and my belive is that the .423 buld was a much stable OS, good baterry, lock button worked for locking only(1 of ur probs mentioned above)..

    I must agree with this statement. I just switched from having Verizon to AT&T. Tour to Bold 9700. Upgraded to 680 and MAN. The Battery is a world difference with AT&T then Verizon I will say that!

    I agree 100%, but if anything, it's more that this site is different. Again, after years of WM, I have dealt with WM Forums with the same maturity as the other site. I am greatful that everyone here has tried to lend a hand instead of trying to slam in their reply. I have gotten my BlackBerry to acceptable, after realizing my default VM changed. I went a week with my VMs going elsewhere, and have no idea where to retrieve them. I am hoping this device (along with the support of this forum) turns around in my mind. It has about 2 more weeks to stop dropping the ball before I leave for an IPhone. You guys have helped save it from hitting my wall. Just hoping to make it perform like my beloved Storm before its too late.

    Thanks again everyone...your thoughtful advice has truly helped.

    Who/what is a "WM Forum?" (Windoze Mobile?) I was referring to childrenberry.com (some call it crackberry).

    I'd keep an open mind about that iPhone. I recently bought a MacBook Pro and have gone into a total love affair with this laptop. It has changed much of my earlier perspectives of Apple and Apple's products. I watched Steve Jobs' WWDC keynote and was very impressed with the 4G iPhone. I'm a pretty die-hard T-Mobile guy so I'm not going to at&t to get an iPhone but if T-Mobile ever gets the new 4G iPhone, I'd be a buyer.

    I still love my 9700 but the iPhone would probably play better with my MacBook so I'm keeping an open mind. If you check out the iPhone's sales growth, it's got to be scary up there in Ontario where RIM is. Apple is fast approaching a point in time where they well could overtake RIM's sales of the BlackBerry and become the dominant smart phone. I'd say unless Ontario does something revolutionary, it's only a matter of time before the iPhone takes over.

    So perhaps it's not a terrible idea to check into that iPhone if your BB is giving you that much heartache.

    I have been running .743 for the last few days and have seen no bugs yet. Battery life is virtually the same if not a little better than .680.
