East Asia will work fine - any OS download you see at the top of this forum will have English. I'd recommend getting the latest 5.0.0.680.

Since updating my phone has been freezing alot and I am loosing my signal. I can be somewhere and its showing "SOS" and i reboot the phone and I have a full signal. Sometimes I have a full signal and it still will not receive phone calls or emails. Im going back to another OS.

The phone seems to work just fine, even better than before except that my UMA no longer works. I can still connect to my WiFi access point but UMA never kicks in...I'm on T-Mobile and it had worked before this update.

I have tried to follow the instructions on how to install the firmware but cannot seem to bring it up as a valid install for a 9700 on Rogers Canada or a 9700 on Telus Canada.

I was able to load 593 onto a T-Mobile but also no 680

When I open the apploader and plug in my BB's it doesnt show up with the OS as an upgrade, only shows 3rd party apps on the device with options to remove. I have removed the vendor.xml as per the instruction. Any other suggestions on why I cannot load newer firmware?

Thumbs up how to overcome the key lock icon missing

I just wanted to share a new experience with bb 9700.
I too had a problem of lock icon missing after upgrade.just last week I purchased bb 9700 with a holster where the head of the instrument protrudes over the neck of the holster(don't know why).
I also upgraded to os 5.0.0.593 &my lock icon was missing.I locked the key pad by pressing A and my bb got locked.I put it in side the holster. For some reason I pulled my bb out of holster.WOOW.the phone automatically got UNLOCKED.what a pleasent surprice.try it out friends.

Downloading now.

I haven't been staying on top of the latest versions lately. A week ago I "upgraded" to 5.0.0.602 and that version is rubbish. After reading everything posted here about .862 on down to .680, I'm going to try .680 before going closer to the newest. I will report back in a day or so.

UPDATE: Finished install. So far, boot takes the same time as before.

The wizard that walks you through basic setup and how to use the phone on its "first boot" is new and slick.

Backing up device based on http://www.blackberryforums.com/afte...arty-apps.html still works basically the same way on BBDesktop 6. Right now trying the Add function.
