Well, I can tell ya I have been having some problems too. Memory leaks in the browser, Vlingo won't work properly, SocialScope won't allow me to follow links, or cut and past, the media app has asked if I want to delete files without me prompting, my custom alerts won't work. I think its a great direction, needs more time in the oven though. Downgrading later.

I'm running this on Rogers network, so far I haven't had issues with this. Battery seems to be the same if not slightly better. I have't experienced any of the said issues in this thread however I only speak for myself.
One not so much an issue more an annoyance is BBM wouldn't show in menu if I used app world to upgrade it. It showed as installed in appworld but not in applications. I had to delete the app world version and then it gave me an option to download from bb site directly, works like a charm now.
I am not a heavy user so so far it seems ok to me, i might sitck with this for a bit and see what long run use is like.
@k3n07 - my wap and wifi hotspot browser work just fine.
The only thing i found on my second day of usage is that i have some memory leak just like on my old curve.....not a big issue sticking with Os 6 until the final release!!!!
Just loving 188.8.131.524, good battery life, super browser dont need Bolt, Opera anymore, very responsive. universal search, sick interface. No problems at all after deleting that tmobile theme cod. I especially love my camera now with all the different modes. I have not put back a lot of my apps though. Does anyone know the minimum memory to leave free for optimum performance?
All download links are broken. Any other download solution??
Anyone else experiencing mad memory leaks ?

lost Options menu under phone/log
uhm, i lost my call forwarding options that used to be under the phone icon/log, menu for options then call forwarding. Now when I go there, i hit options and the menu disappears and puts me right back at call log. Anyone else having this issue??
I went from os 184.108.40.2062 over to this, doing a clean wipe with bbsak and only restoring essential files from a backup.
Did 5-6 battery pulls in the 3 days that I have had this OS installed and now it's running very fine. All I did was delete the .cods of Visual Voice Mail, Voice Activated Dialing, Enhanced Gmail Plugin and the T-Mobile themes. Right now the device is running stable with 60-70MB of free memory. Whoever that said this new OS is only cosmetic change will really need to check inside their heads IMO. Actually, just for being able to use the Verdana font in a stock theme made me happy enough! Then again, I'm pretty easy to please...
Bb6 on 9700... So far so good, had a few laggs from day one, but you know how we solve these problems a few "battery pulls" and we are good to go. My 6 is still getting use to my 9700 all now cause I get lil lag here and there but I can see it crossing that bridge soon.
Advantages: As expected, the ui is swEet, smooth, everything on my 9700 is way better than os5. A whole new interface means a whole new experience, and that is. What am going through all now.
Tabed browsing as always is neccessery so that's an upidy... Lol yeah I know music player is like a dream come through... Audio books on 9700, gr8.
My dis-advantages: browser's still limited to "downloaded" content size on network (digicel) doubt it's my network's fault though cause I uses bolt to do what this can't. Kind of ****ty, I expectd better there.
Some sites aren't being loaded due to size also. "Thought that was crap"
As for videos... Same old same old. Limited to the sizes I can watch online or download.
Still can't watch youtube, that problem existed on my o5 ver so it's not new.
All in all am loving this os6 on my BB I find it to be user friendly once you get pass the bugs and ants lol...
Am having fun with mine and hope all who owns a 9700 try out the new blackberry 6
Air your experience, it won't be the same with everyone.

Reason: a few corrections
Update OS6 back in
Well I couldn't give up , I wiped my system clean with BSSAK, then installed with no apps or backups. I found many OS5 apps work but with problems under OS6. I also found by installing clean without the restore of backups, afterwards would not let me restore them, as they are not compatible.
I installed new apps and found this time I was receiving apps for the Torch or OS6. Doc to go was upgraded to OS6 and up ,(before the upgrade on line could not determined my version).
Everything is fine except for playing my personal music videos in mepg4. Real player would convert them to wmv, and 3gp would work. I tried the device manager sync and would get sound with the videos in mp4 except the timing was off from the video.
So I converted my vids to 3gp and wmv. I now have all my stuff back in and working, although I'm still trying to find the right conversion for the vids in mp4.
I cannot go back to OS5 as the web browser and search function has got me spoiled big time!
Anyone else who has this problem with the video playback format would appreciate feedback.
My youtube plays videos perfect now and MSN online says no video format for your phone. I can live with that as the video format on MSN under OS5 was really a waste of time ,(very poor, lots of buffering). The rest of the browser features more then make up for this.
Also video camera and picture taking works fine........oceanghost

anyone have a working link?
Getting used to the interface, but still it's confusing
Lot of apps troubles...
Copy & Paste issues
No YouTube yet
Explorer works, but no Font change according to page size...
i agree with you...yes it "zaps" battery life but i think thats because of the transition effect. you will soon notice a drag in processing speed,....thats probalbly due to memory leakage......the youtube player problem is there too...am still trying to figure that out but there are no copy and paste issues...you just dont know how to do it yet because you still think its the same way with os5....
to copy on os6....
1...press the BB button and select "select text"
2...it will now allow you to see you "cursor"....scroll to the text you want to copy then;
3...press the BB button again and select "start selection"
4...you can now highlight the text you want to copy
5...press the BB button again and select "copy"
i may change back to os5 with my BB 9700 because i need my speed back but i'm gonna miss RSS ans Social feed of os6....i'm gonna miss the transition effect....its like that of windows vista....i'm gonna miss alot of stuffs in os6...the only solution is to upgrade to BB 9780 with 512RAM....
I noticed that whenever I hit the Email Settings app (this didn't happen the first time I installed 6), the device would just freeze for a good 4-5 minutes and then voila! My memory drops by 5-10 MBs. Did anyone else experience this and/or have some kind of solution? I asked my friend who has a 9650 and said yes, it also happens with his 6-loaded device (9650/220.127.116.115).
