Though we've seen this OS before in leak and official versions for the BlackBerry Torch 9800,  we thought we should go ahead and let you guys know that AT&T has officially released it as well. I'm sure there may be a small group of you out there waiting for this from AT&T so if that's you, then here you go! If you installed the leak or the official version from Vodafone DE last month, no need to re-install this, as they are all the same OS. As with any OS, be sure to do a backup of your device before installing.

Thanks to everyone that sent this in!

BlackBerry Torch 9800 OS v6.0.0.600 officially released by AT&T


There is a leak version on the board the you can use. This is an official OS that at&t approved for the customers.

I'd like to point out my own findings which I have yet to see anywhere on this thread.
Google Contact Sync over BIS DOES NOT WORK. If you go into your contacts, open the menu, and select your email account, you are supposed to
"Select the Wireless Synchronization check box or change the Wireless Synchronization field to Yes."
I have yet to see it, even after enabling it multiple times.
Hitting UP on the volume rocker in the media player jumps to the next track. Hitting Down restarts the track currently playing. I cannot find a setting to change this anywhere in the OPTIONS menu, nor any way to change the volume via the touch screen. This has become incredibly annoying.
Even after turning GPS, Bluetooth, and Wifi off, the battery seems worse than any previous leaks. I'm considering doing a full wipe and starting from scratch.
In Podtrapper, I used to be able to hit the MUTE button to pause my podcasts, but now I can't.

Has anyone else had the same media player problems?

Via OTA. Nothing fishy to report yet, though I've noticed a few changes.
The battery icon, while charging, has gone through a bit of a change.
The bookmarks through the browser look different as well.
All icons appear larger to me.

Haven't tested out the battery life yet, or anything else for that matter. Will be back if anything else catches my eye.

Been using the leaked version for over a month now and the only thing I don't like is the main app list not showing apps when first accessed, so you have to go back to homescreen and then back to app list. Battery life is alot better than on OS .576. Smoother transitions in themes. Overall it is more snappier than before.
