I am going to stick with it. I like alot of the new features. It will serve my needs just fine. So far, and it's been 2 days now, it has been working flawlessly. SO FAR !!! :P
I too had issues with the notifications on emails...but i went into the individual account profiles - found that the settings for ring In/out of holster or always were all screwed up...also, many of the volume levels were down to 1. After going thru that, I have no notification issues.
Also switched back to stock Zen theme.
I cant decide if I am going to keep it or not. Last Hybrid I tried bricked the phone on me (my fault without a doubt...) so I am a tad gunshy. Altho with the link to 151 earlier in this thread, i may try it this weekend.
Welcome to BlackberryOS. To tell you the truth, the more you brick and recover your phone, the more confident you get. I could care less about bricking my phone now knowing it can be recovered if I have a little bit of patience.

Does anyone know if BBM 5.0 is downloadable again? I heard RIM made everyone take their links down... Thats the other thing is I dont wanna lose BBM 5.0...
No BBM 5 has been taken down. However, if you back up your phone, BBM is saved as an application should you should be able to restore that from there.

Also as other people mentioned, the memory stability on this build is great.

I'm liking it. A couple of my apps don't work but all in all I like this OS. Browser is fast and so is the camera. Signal is strong and the battery life is good. I think that RIM is trying to take it down because it's as close to gold as they have been. Once BBC finishes tweaking it (legally of course) then it should be spectacular.:cool2:
Need my apps. pdf to go was #1 reason. One other problem I had right off the bat, was setting my bb alarm. The only way I could change the hours, was to scroll forever through the minutes box... sort of like using the old wrist watch to go back in time one minute at a time lol. For now it's 151 and BBM 5.0 for me.
