    For now its a waiting game for me. I have a copy but I would like to see something more stable before I commit. Plus I am going to be housebound for 3 months as I recuperate, I am going in for surgery next week so I will be offline from Wednesday thru (likely) Sunday until the wife goes back to work and I can sneak my laptop downstairs

    I mean what the heck I have the time to kill and play around with the current Storm. So we will see.

    Good luck with your surgery. Hope all goes well.

    BBMD good luck,

    As far as os's go im riding this one out. Have had great luck so far ( knock on wood). This has treated me very well as i have all my must have s working.....

    BBM 5.0, QP, QL, uber twitter, yahtzee, opera mini, smrt guard, pageonce, poynt, viigo, scoremobile, air traffic control. all my native apps work great as well..

    I have always sworn by BBC's hybrids but as of right now i just dont see where there could be any improvements.

    It's been a couple days and I have decided to stay with 5.0. The phone is doing wonderfully. The only issue I see current with my phone is accessing photo through the media. There is a short pause, but I believe I can live with that. All of my applications work, but with blackberry maps there is a compatibility issue. I will be interested to see what the hybriders are able to do with this.

    At this point I'm going back to .151. Don't get me wrong this build has some very exciting possibilities, however some things really irk me that I just cant stand anymore. The big one is not being able to clear messages as read, I'm doing so many batt pulls I might as well be on .75. So until BBC puts a hybrid out I've decided to go back.

    Is anyone running any custom themes with success for 5.0 or is everyone sticking with the Zen theme. I did not want to open a new thread for the answer.

    From what I understand many are running with the default zen.

    I'm going to stick with it. I haven't really had a problem with the apps not working. It runs extremely smooth on my phone so it is worth it for me to lose a few apps that I can afford to live without.

    Lately whenever I call someone their voice gets all choppy and full of static, and also sometimes they can't hear me. This is in broad daylight, walking around nyc.

    I went back to .151 with the hybrid from OOAK 7.11 i think his latest is. Sucks I had to give up the new loading screen and the memory stability, who knows I might just go back to 5.0 just for the heck of it. Here's hoping for a .164 leak and/or a new 5.0 leak :439:

    may try again

    after using 5.0 for 3 days over the weekend I went back to 151 with lyricidal's beta6v5 on Sunday night..... problems: clocking which i had forgot about... phone giving me java exceptions at end of phone calls... slugish typing... missed a picture at the beach on sat cause phone rebooted while trying to unlock... had several reboots on sat and sunday... theme problems with BBampd_Blue_Today and BlackBerry_Pro_v3_BLUE_4 from Natemz.... if i used zen theme had fewer problems.....

    Did not wipe phone before install, if fact i have only ever wiped once before installing, (i know... maybe phone is getting stinky) I have install OS about 12 times over the past couple of months trying out several of the hybrids.. and without the wipe all my 3rd party apps are there... yes the lazy way....

    Sooo, short story I have be considering trying 5.0 again with a wipe and after a day after activation on BES... slowy add my apps back... i use google maps and mail, GPStracker, signalloc, speedometer and weatherbug

    got my fingers crossed, cause i really liked the 5.0 features...

    i'll post my results in a couple of days..

    I went back down to .151 on Monday. I have zero problems with .151 and I need my phone to perform all the time. It ran horrible on 5.0.140. I will wait to upgrade next time. 5.0.140 has me a little timid to change my OS again. It didn't help that I went on vacation without my laptop and felt helpless with the bugs of OS 5. I am glad RIM is going down that path. I like what the future holds for us Stormers!

    Sorry to hear that. I too am housebound after having a stroke, but this site is a Godsend to me. I can't tell you how many times I have loaded and unloaded OS's and hybrids. The combination of my new STORM and BBOS has provided me with hours and hours of what would otherwise probably be filled with sitting around feeling sorry for myself.

    I have had 5.0.140 on since the first leak, except to try a version 4.7 V11 hybrid, but I missed the "real" transitions and general UI and speed of 5.0, so I only had that one for a few hours.

    I really love 5.0 and am so happy it is now "in the wild", because I assume that means only good things (better things) happening for the OS.

    Get in, get back and get well fast.

    I always wait a few days before upgrading os's. It is such a hassle to redo everything that you had set with your previous os. I said that to say this. I never gave 5.0 a try, too many bugs and apps not working.
