    5.0 is a great glimpse into where RIM is taking the OS. It has some very nice features on it, for example, web browsing on it is crazy face and renders images much quicker than anything 4.7 can do. I also found the radio code from 5.0 to be superior from a clarity and reception point of view. A big con for me is themes do not play nice with 5.0. There are also some apps that are not compatible. In addition 5.0 reboots on me once a day but typically when I am asleep. So I am still using 5.0. But for someone looking for overall stability and a great OS that works with everything V8 is the way to go. Just my two cents

    +1!!!

    The radio of 5.0 beat all previous ones for me! I don't get dropped signal or dropped calls. 1XEV steady...I am more than pleased!!! As far as themes, the only glitch for me on them is the notifications. Right now I am back to Fresh by Brandon and it's one of the best themes I have ran on 5.0!!! :cool2::arms:

    With Brandon's theme are you getting audible notifications or no?

    5.0 works great for me. FB does not work but you can go to m.facebook.com in the browser, which is tabbed and fast. I showed it to my buddy the other day and he said "where is it, I want it, put it on my phone now!" and that was just seeing the transitions. Sometimes the SMS sound does not play but I am on my phone often enough to where I see them anyway. Google maps initially gave me a hassle by always showing the keyboard but you can get rid of that by disabling compatibility mode in the options. Ubertwitter is the bomb!! No themes is a bummer too...espcially since I've created a few...but oh well. It's a game of give and take.

    I'd like to add my +1 for 5.0. I ran it sense it leaked and loved it. Started having my once a day reboots as well so I tried v8. BBC's hybrids have always been nothing short of terrific on my storm but after trying 5.0 its was hard to give 5.0 up. So I did go back to 5.0 but with fewer needless apps. Never ran any themes so no prob there especially sence 5.0 offers hidden clock, connection etc buttons. My home screen's pretty thined out as well. I run QL, and have loved that functionality. Currently I'm running QL, pageonce, smrt guard, opera mini, ubertwitter, poynt, yahtzee, air traffic control, & you tube. Its been about a week and no reboots so I'm pretty pleased.

    Between lou's suggestion of giving QP up (don't need it, reset button available in QL) & olta's suggestion of keeping browser cache clean, 5.0 has been flawless. (knock on wood)
