Sticking, Staying and Loving it.
I had 3 apps that didn't work (log into facebook with Opera). Vlingo, BB App World and Application center.
I have been really lucky with my Storm. It has taken everything I have thrown at it.
I had an issue with the Internal Browser being sooo slow! But today it settled in and is now the fastest and most responsive of any of the OS's. Not as fast as Opera...that REALLY flies!
I have 18 3rd Party Apps (19 if you count Natemz's BBapmped Red Theme) and I boot with 41.8MB and haven't been below 34MB yet. It is fast, colorful, responsive and works with all my apps (lucky I guess), I use a paid 3rd party GPS Navigation (for the one that asked earlier) it is Garmin Mobile and it is so sweet! But that is if you want to pay for one.
Well that's my 2 pennies. I totally love it...and...I know it will only get better as our geeks start polishing off a few brews and "tweak" it even more.
Just recently discovered Slacker radio & can't go without it, so I'm sticking with Crackman's Hybrid for now
now I was sitting here thinking and I'm not sure about all the different parts and what they do. I do know that BBC and the others shuffles different pieces around to fix different bus and try to speed things up. Now My question is do we think it's possible to take the pieces that control the message alerts and phone alerts from one of the other 5.0 builds from a different model phone and replace them. I can deal with the apps not working but the the no alerts thing combined with the SMS messages and emails not showing up right away (and sometimes not at all until a battery pull is done) is unacceptable to me...come on BBC work your magic buddy!!!
I said no, but not for my apps. I loved it after the first install, but i just finished putting a 4.7.1/.151/5.0 hybrid back on because of the bugs i kept getting. They slowly trickled in untill it was almost unbearable lol.
well i voted yes i love it..........i don't have any of these issues really..........facebook not being available has actually been a breath of fresh air.......now for my quickpull to work would be great but haven't needed to reset my phone for any reason......memory is the best it has ever been......i don't use any of these other apps......alarm clock doesn't work correctly but found a fix so.......she's a keeper!!!!!!!!!!!!
phone has been on since 2 am this morning and has lost 4mb.........that is by far the best for me EVER!!!!

Reason: more info
i have to be quite honest besides that u cannot view the pic anymore before u download i have 0 issues with bbm 5.0.. and todays rim being down.. but other than that absolutely no issues at all... LUV ITTTT
While it's nice and all, I need my apps otherwise I wouldn't even bother with a BB. I did like what it did to my font though... at least I think in part it had something to do with it. OS 5 had font sizes smaller than what's currently available on beta releases and hybrids so I chose one and at around 6 or 5, forgot which one though but after soft wiping the phone with BBSK, the size kinda of stuck but it's for my BBClarity. It's nice and small, just the way I like it. I can actually read my most of my work email without having to scroll at all. I dare not try and change the font or size now just in case it reverts back and won't let me change it again.
Wirelessly posted (storm 9530)
I probably will give 5.0 a couple more days. I downloaded two versions in the exchange for different bugs. I can live with out my apps so as I have google maps and access to BBOS. The beta shows where Rim is headed and I like it!
