Bold OS changes leave my BB slower??
kind of a long story here so bear with me please. I got my BB Bold at the beginning of '09 and came with whatever OS Rogers had out at the time. I may have even upgraded once without any problem. Anyway, about two months ago I got brave and installed 5.0 on it. Had a lot of nice improvements but was still too slow and glitchy for me so I had planned on going back. So I went back to whatever OS I had...I can't remember but it was recent. It seemed ok but my camera was VERY slow to open and when I clicked on Options/Memory, it took quite a while for the memory page to load. But then Rogers officially released 188.8.131.522 so I though "hey, great timing." I"ll upgrade to the new .292 and it will fix everything.
Nope. My brother in law who got a bold the same day I did, can now open his camera, focus on me and take a pic even before my screen shows the camera viewfinder! And the memory page is still really slow!
Now these may not seem like big deals, but I wonder what other glitches the 5.0 may have left me with.
Ok (whew) here is my question. I just did the downgrades/upgrades through DM... should I do a wipe???
And if so, how do I save my apps, contacts, messages etc when I wipe? I still have the .282 file on my computer so that isn't a big deal. I can reinstall.
I hope this makes sense and I hope that someone can help... I would prefer to wipe as my last option as I have never done it before, and being a lifetime computer user, the thought of "erasing" anything scares me!!
Thanks in advance!!
