    So the important question is how does one become a beta tester.

    You can sign up directly with RIM to become a beta tester.

    My question is why do the different leaks come out with major things not working. IE no camera with 5.0 191, different things have happened to a lot of builds. To me this is a major problem with quality control. I understand trying to make OS better and adding different thinks but not missing major parts.

    If I remember correctly when .191 came out for the Storm that specific build was to test fixes on different parts of the OS, and they had deliberately disabled the camera as that was not part of the testing for that leak.

    OK maybe. That is one example of one leak. There have been numerous items missing in previous OS leaks like no dial pad in one leak and it goes on and on.
    I am just saying this seems like a quality control problem to me.

    When its leaked typically its not being released to us.. so its not a quality control problem as we were never supposed to see it. They are usually in the middle of 'quality' testing when its dropped to us.,

    There is a reason they are leaks and not official releases, not sure what more I can tell you. In .114 where the dial pad was missing what is to say that wasn't tested and then that issue found, so they moved on to a new OS to test. Someone then leaked .114 to the public. I appreciate the leaks bugs and all as it gives us something to play with, and we get to glimpse what future "official releases" may hold.

    The problem why a lot of these bugs we see pop up is because, like other have said, we are not meant to get these. A lot of times when they work on the OS and fix one thing, it can break something else. Thats why there are so many builds. It's not really a QC problem. Just the fact that these are not "Official" quality.

    The best analogy I can think of would be, kind of like making a theme. Sometimes I will have several versions before I finally get everything ironed out. I have had themes that I had 20-30 versions before the final one. So if I leaked a early version, it would have bugs. Not because I wasn't doing quality control, but because I wasn't done getting the bugs out on that particular version.

    Excellent, informative post. Hopefully it will be seen by all the 'RIM leak them on purpose' conspiracy crowd.
