Just installing now, appears to be a Vodafone leak as it includes MMC (Vodafone music app)

Be back in 30 mins after the install!

SO, still no BBM5, and no tabbed browsing on the Browser.
browsing seems alot slower at the mo.

AppStore seems not to want to run.. Trying to install that again.

Will update when I have more!

**Update**
After an uninstall, reboot and reinstall of appstore it works fine on this os.

Ditto about the charging pod. I'll have to wait until after work to test the Bluetooth issues with the media player. **crosses fingers** It seems every time they put out a really nice snappy version, the Bluetooth is messed in the media player somehow *knocks on wood* ...wow, you'd think I was superstitious or something.

Well I tried the install.....it's been about 1.5 hrs and the phone has yet to initiate. I did realize after I started that I had not deleted the Vendor file....could this be it?

So the question is....what do I do? Do i just leave it plugged in? or should I disconnect delete the file and try again?

Thanks!!!!

Is it just me, or is the data/browser so so slow??

If it doesn't get any better soon, then I'm going to have to back to 4.6

The browser actually works really fast for me.
Changing songs is still a bit slow.
SMS notifications work properly now.
Viigo still a no go for scrolling with pictures.
Windows Live Messenger still doesn't save passwords... but I imagine that's a bug in the actual application.
Picture thumbnails show up super fast.
Camera works good.
Video records a tad bit choppy; slight noticeable freezes every short time.

If you install this on a T-Mobile USA branded BB, does UMA still work?

In the threaded SMS, if you have someone's messages open and just hit the End button to go home, leaving their messages active in the background, new SMS notifications for that person get cleared instantly if you get a new one from them. So if you missed the sound or vibration, you won't know you got a new message from them. But as long as you back out of their messages to the list of SMS conversations, it works fine.

Viewing images is a little annoying when you want to be zooming in and such using the normal keyboard shortcuts. 'L' for rotate only works after you've zoomed in at least once. When zoomed in, scrolling around is pretty choppy. Same thing with flicking through pictures; the sliding animation can be pretty choppy. When zooming in and then pressing the back button, it doesn't seem to work as I remember.
