This is a HOT one! OS 7.0.1.74 for the BlackBerry Bold 9900 has turned up and it looks like this version includes Wifi Hotspot! I'm downloading and getting ready to install as I write this, so if you do get the chance to fire it up, be sure to report back here with your findings or swing by the forums to let us know what you find. It looks like Mobile Hotspot Mode is enabled in this build as well as Emergency Alert Messages. As always, use caution when installing a new OS on your device. Thanks Rais!

Been waiting a long time for this one!

tmobile uma works, no nfc no bbm6.1 but i way happier now uma is big since no signal where i live

albaajy

BlackBerry Bold 9900 on T-Mobile Observations:

1) T-Mobile UMA Calling is working
2) Mobile Hotspot provides faster speed that BB Bridge

I did three speedtests on my PlayBook to compare Download/Upload speeds. They are as follows:

Local Wifi: 6.82Mbps/0.79Mbps
Mobile Hotspot: 3.32Mbps/0.96Mbps
BB Bridge: 0.82Mbps/0.30Mbps

Also, Mobile hotspot to my laptop works well. Enjoy!

boman06210

Eff this man...I'm so pissed, its like the 9930 doesn't even exist.

UnknownError507

they are not tht many users with 9930 and is not so much demand in bug fixes then 9900 :D.

Patience my friend will be relies for you too!

dodger_moore

Relies? What are you on about?

ryankidd17

9930 owners pay the same thing as 9900..we should be treated fairly... so we should suffer bad battery and bricking and glitches because the carriers and RIM dont like us?

the brother

dude, all 7.1's are leaking today....stay tuned!

ok?

boman06210

I'm seeing this on twitter. I hope its true.

ryankidd17

where'd you see that? really dont wanna get my hopes up :/

mario jr

i feel u but tmoobile 9900 $650

Jonathank

don't u realize that they needed it for the 9900 because att's data cost to dam much and its capped
you would not need to worry about wifi with the 9930 for sprint because its truly unlimited....the carriers have 2 much say on these things
I know sprints network is garbage but its still unlimited and only att customers truly need wifi
But I would have liked it on my 9930 as well, I agree with you.

BBThemes

the reality is that there are more carriers worldwide using GSM, therfore more points for a `leak` to occur.

Marc_Paradise

Seriously dude? You're pissed off because a leaked, unofficial OS was not released for your device?

It'd be one thing if all the carriers released updates for everything except the 9930, but come on. Take a deep breath. It's a leak that wasn't supposed to be made public at all -- no sense getting worked up over the fact that it's not released for your device too. It will get there, sooner or later.

UnknownError507

Sweet!!!! Now relies for torch9810 the same :)

As soon as a go home im gonna try this one on my GF bold 9900 :D

jKickeR

Nice.

Taking bets on how long Rogers will take to roll out this update once it goes live everywhere else

- 2months
- 3months
- 4+ months

DaveTheA

Has Rogers _ever_ released an OS update for 9900? This is the first time I've been tempted to use an unofficial upgrade on this phone...

jfmanzo

I've updated my Rogers 9900 with these leaked upgrades three times now- works fine, no worries. It does suck that Rogers never seems to post them- was also the case for my 9780 and for that matter for my Nokia E71 before that.

jKickeR

No they have not. They will go out of their way to get the phone first for the money, but when it comes to support (keeping phones updated) they are next to dead last.

I remember Rogers was the last Canadian provider to release OS 6.0

axe50

Awesome. Any word on if this also has wi-fi calling / uma?

Will try tonight, but for for now stuck at work

pranav.sood

how do you get it to work?? any special settings?a

fatih.kurnaz

installing..
cool long waited : )

tryfe

Sonufabish where's a 9930 leak!?!?!v

A93hunt

BTW Guys, does anyone know if the Wifi hotspot feature is contingent on your carrier or is it available no matter what carrier you have?

Burner83

Is this one Multilanguage, because the file says jAsia. Normally that means it is Japanese and the Asian language. Or am I wrong?

msnaddie

Yup, it is has j in front of it, it'll have Japanese input as well as other Asian language's input :) (Which is awesome! I'm glad this release has Japanese input.)

thevioletdawn17

download n upgrade now. So happy if there is a hotspot wifi in this OS. Sent from my blackberry 9900 Rogers.

Section ThirtyOne

Anyone know if the wifi hotspot functionality is considered tethering, or will it be data plan inclusive like using the Bridge?

gyubok

OMGGGG DOWNLOADING NOW, WILL REPORT!!

coolcut

OMG OMG OMG! HAS NOBODY FINISHED INSTALLING YET!? REPORT!

hjmargarido

long waiting on ram update......

mak5th

perfect i am so happy with my phone yahoo

brkiko201

does any one know when it releases for the torch 9850 ?

duspin

damn! i can't wait to upgrade my phone when i get home!!!

trixxr4kids

Can anybody tell me how wifi hot spot works? Sorry I'm a noob.

Rob Robertson

I don't know the technology behind it but if you're asking what it does, it lets you turn your phone into a wifi router for several devices (maximum 4 I think)to tap into.

So lets say you're at the airport waiting for a flight with your friends. You can enable hotspot on your phone that you and your friends can use to get on the web.

It will use your data plan so have to be careful if you have a limited data plan.

trixxr4kids

Sweet! Got 5gb of data on my plan so I think it will suffice. Thanks for your help!

cyprusfire

You are essentially turning your phone into a wifi hotspot just like a wireless router you possibly have at home or if you use one at your local Starbucks.
You are using your cell phone data plan to connect to the internet but you're able to connect multiple devices to the one connection. You can even connect your laptop or tablet (not sure about Apple ipad....lol) as if you were in a coffee shop but just not as fast as pure wifi connection.

CavemanOOGA

Man! No 9930 love... What the hell. Oh well, Congrats to all the 9900 folk. Give us lesser 9930 some reports!!!

BENZ_O

wish i was at home, fack!

fatih.kurnaz

i hope wifi hotspot feat. should work on BlackBerry apn because it is free and included BiS package..
if not, that means it will work on internet apn like Android,iPhone does and wlll cost extra money..
Some operators include, some not.
My operator provides me unlimited BlackBerry apn + 4GB wap and internet apn..
so i will use wifi hot spot feature either 4 GB or unlimited..
will see ..

bbschorsch

NFC appears in setup - but where is the tag application?

kb2755

RIM employees updated today to 7.1.0.328... I'm a little skeptical about loading .74 seeing as its so old for them.

patmur2010

norton called it a virus for me...

[Deadly duo - Playbook/Bold]

Xader

There's your problem.

Norton IS a virus... :p

patmur2010

Well its working wonderfully on my blackberry now!!!

[Deadly duo - Playbook/Bold]

pinggwing

Oh Yesss! Been waiting for this! Hopefully its stable. Have bad memories on rushing a leaked version on my berries. Keep us posted early installers! :)
YES!

hjmargarido

only works with apn from a provider...in my country there no such service...f**k

bbschorsch

no alert message system in this os 7.1

bbschorsch

docs2go got updated to v3.0.0.201 (latest leak was 3.0.0.134)

bbschorsch

not able to install BBM v6.1.0.25 on the bold 9900

decoy7

Yes, download ota from rroy.com/beta ...only if you already have your key code.

decypher44

Seriously, what's with the utter lack of updates for the 9930???

tnhrocks

Couldn't agree more!! Just like the 9650 all over again.

Bla1ze

CDMA is / always has been last priority. Just stop and think for one second how many areas actually still maintain CDMA networks outside of the USA. Hell, even all the Canadian carriers are GSM now, after ditching CDMA.

lengend

Incorrect. I believe Public Mobile is CDMA here in Canada.

123berryaddicted

Actually he isn't incorrect. There are only 3 true major (outside of sasktel, not sure what they are) networks here in Canada, Rogers (nationwide), Telus (in the west) and Bell (in the east). Telus and Bell share each others network (east and west) and therefore are actually one large nationwide network. Rogers has always been GSM, and telus and bell have both switched their focus to their new gsm (hspa) networks. Yes they still maintain their cdma networks, but even this will be changing. Bla1ze had a good point, cdma is VERY small (worldwide) compared to the gsm networks, of course RIM's focus is going to be GSM first. Btw, there are several small offshoots of the three major cell companies in Canada, they are fido, virgin, etc. These use their parent companies network (ex. Fido = rogers)

n8dog89

CrunchSMS stops working after the update! Says it supports v6 and v7 but not v7.1... this sux. Everything else seems to work ok... i emailed the Crunch team, but i doubt they will even bother to reply as its a leak... either way they should be prepared... OS is stable so far as well...

luqman24

Seems like its an early build judging from the last 2 numbers and the comments, don't be surprised if another one leaks that is stable. I wouldn't install it if I were you guys..

Berrys_cracked

Shitty 9900 battery life is about to get a whole lot shittier : (

thecsman

You cannot use your 9900 as a WiMax router! It's a phone! My 9900 can easily do 12hrs with moderate use (bluetooth off), and 10hrs if bridged all day.

derekjdech

I want it so bad! Should I install it on my 9900? This is the only thing I'm praying for arrival

robsteve

Installed it and Mobile Hotspot works on Rogers at least. I have tethering enabled on my plan.

Shane8750

IT HAS UMA!!! (Rogers anyway)

Finally!!

Shane8750

Instead of showing UMA once connected, they designed a new icon...

Shane8750

a rectangular box, with phone symbol\wifi symbol. and a setting to warn you when wifi signal getting low, a soft tone sound.

prlarkin

thanks for that. Will upload this when get home

pranav.sood

How'd you get it to work? I'm on Rogers and am connected to mobile network and wifi - did it automatically start for you? any specific settings?

tailc

This is an awesome addition to BB!!!!! For those of you that are unsure how to setup; you need your carriers APN info.

Make sure and enter the APN info as you see it in the link below. This link has a few APN for the different carriers out there. If you don’t see your do a search and I’m sure you fine it. Have fun!!!!!

I’m on the AT&T network; so I’m using the following info:
APN: wap.cingular
Username: WAP@CINGULARGPRS.COM
Password: CINGULAR1

http://androidforums.com/hero-support-troubleshooting/45005-mobile-netwo...

Chaddface

Do you have to add tethering to use the hotshot?

ml2302

The download link is not working for me :/

puffski

awesome to see this ! any one know when an official one of these will be released? :D

White9900

Link not working! Any others? when will it be official?

adickason

So far so good on AT&T!!! I have successfully used the NEW Mobile Hotspot feature and it works great!!! I simply entered wap.cingular for the APN with no username or password.

luis.estrada10

Does everything work fine? No bugs or problems with any apps?

@3iza

Hotspot working (MTN Nigeria)...u'll need a separate plan besides regular BIS to use tho.

BBM 6.1: beta zone won't let you download, but if you already have the keycode, you can download it from www.rroyy.com

Socialscope: Doesn't recognise the OS as 7.0, so it doesn't work.

For those looking for mirrors, check the thread.

thatMikeguy

Link is dead already. Can't get it anymore it seems.

fopoku2k2

anybody tried the WiFi hotspot on a Vodafone network???

Phill_UK

Yup... it works fine on Vodafone UK

wadjaw

Not working for me
it says : Cannot start Mobile Hotspotdue to a temporary network problem, please try again later.
and if my wifi is off it says cannot enable mobile hotspot, make sure mobile and wifi radios are on.

sbx9900

any news on whether this works on tmo?

-Dark_Gemini-

Are You serious? It would be nice 2 if I could get Mobile Hotspot on my BB Torch 9800...... I'm planning on buy a new BB, hopefully this update will be available on BB OS 6, 7, & BBX OS & also hope it comes out 2 the public soon!!!!

Atigoal84

I download it but I can't see anywhere the mobile hotspot??
And I got only the english language?? I need my dutch language

xoAudrina

Oh my god, I cannot figure out how to get this update on my phone. My computer says that I've installed it but it doesn't show up on my blackberry.

mario jr

did u get it? pin me or bbm

yvpan1

nice.. finally it's coming! carriers.. hurry up do the testing, report the bugs, let RIM fix it and approve it so that we can do the upgrade SOON!!!

i've been waiting for the mobile hotspot SOOOOO BADLY! GO BB 7.1!

johnsoj2us

Running the hotspot as i type this on my laptop that i have connected through my 9900 :) sweet feature

deens00

Ok so I upgraded and when I go turn on the personal wifi spot it gives me an error
"Cannot start mobile hotspot due to a temporary network problem. Please try again later"

Any thoughts?

Steveml20

Had the same problem; wifi needs to be on so if you are at work/home with a connection, delete that profile and try it because it cant become a hotspot if you're already connected. Also, in TCP/IP setting, make sure all the fields are filled in with your service provider's info and that the APN Authentication Enabled box is unchecked

bbinsight

Dont forget that if you are on Bell you need to add some APN info

check the link below: I got my hotspot to work after adding this info: The link on my phone says Mobile Hotspot connected

I hope I'm not tethering:

http://support.bell.ca/en-on/Mobility/Smartphones_and_mobile_internet/Ho...

Anyone have more insight?

JasonGallagher

somebody please post functionality using wifi hotspot with playbook (with rogers if you use them), if it works properly, what connectivity speeds are relative to tethering. i dont have a 9900 but if this works well i will steal my wifes as i need faster speeds with my pb on the road. THANKS!

ninobrownuk

I have my hotspot working. iPad connected to hotspot. Also I am on TMO-US 9900. My NFC options are not there, but my WiFi calling is now enabled.

echomouse

Hotspot works Perfect! I'm with virgin. Tried it with my laptop and my ipod and both work on the hotspot and a fast speeds. Very Happy :)

yanceyminaya

Hotspot works fine with tmobile, no tethering plan needed. Got an error trying to install bbm 6.1 :(

ninobrownuk

I cannot install BBM 6.1 either on my TMO 9900. I rather have this hotspot option though

EchoTango

Can anyone post a step-by-step set-up procedure so we came all share the love ?

ninobrownuk

I just loaded this on my US Tmo 9900: UMA finally enabled. Hotspot needs APN settings. Does anyone have these settings?

ninobrownuk

TMO APN settings simple:

epc.tmobile.com

no username / no password

royfakhry

I am with tombile, and when i turned mobile hotspot on, i was prompted for the APN

I entered epc.tmobile.com with no username and password

When i connected my laptop to the network, i had the yellow triangle with no internet access

(i set a wep key and entered it when connecting)

Do you have an idea on what might the problem be?
Thanks

TGoosh

did you know swiping up when the playbook is locked unlocks it? if you start from the bezel. is this a mistake or am i late to the game?

-Bold 9700 (waiting on 9790 for tmobile)
-Playbook

mail2aj

Its not a mistake. I found that out myself by accident. Swiping it from any direction - up, down, left or right unlocks it.

Where is the 9930 update?? we need some love!!!

Man the 9930 gets no leak love haha. All you lucky 9900 users post up and let us know how this works and if mobile hotspot is carrier dependent.

Fredstar

Ughh, need a solid DL link to this!!! Please!!

pranav.sood

Anyone that got UMA working on Rogers, can you confirm if you have the TalkSpot add on? Anyone get UMA working without the TalkSpot plan?

brandoninfante

Got it running on my tmobile 9900 and every thing is working great! Hotspot and UMA! I feel like i got a new phone!

mishoberry

i just installed it. its running smooth

1- Wifi is working even when it asked me for ANP setting i just put some random words from my mind and it worked !

my provider gives me 10GB for my BB service every month does that mean wifi hotspot will take from the 10GB from BB plan or it will charge from different source ?

2- i didnt find arabic language in this OS7.1 i can read arabic but i cant write arabic.

is there any way to import the arabic language without reinstalling different OS version ?

mutantstargoat

UMA working very well on Orange UK, just installed and worked straight away. This is on an unbranded GSM 9900, not sure if you'll have much luck on a locked Orange branded though.

TheEliteOne

I have AT&T and the NFC portion didn't show up for me. Did it show up for anyone else?

cyprusfire

I can confirm that the Hotspot works just fine with Wind Mobile using APN settings of internet.windmobile.ca and then username/password are both blank. I was getting download speeds of approx 3200bits/sec on my playbook using the Hotspot instead of the blackberry bridge function. I actually downloaded the software update for the playbook (approx 264mb file) and it seriously was done in no time!!!!

I have found this build to be a little unstable though. I was listening to music and then the phone rang. I took the phone out of the holster and it just froze. Also, I have noticed the same issue of the phone not charging even with the wall charger. I get the silly message that I don't have enough juice when it's straight from the wall charger. I restart the phone and that seems to solve the problem. I also noticed an addition to the clock. There seems to be a small alarm with a plus sign beside it. I guess this is an indicator for you to press when you want to switch your alarm from off to setting a new time.

That's all

Hi, I can't get Orange hotspot to work. My APN settings are correct as far as I know which is just 'orangeinternet'.
What other setting do you have on yours that might be different to mine to enable hotspot to work?

So is there any chance at all that the carriers are actually going to give BB users FREE WIFI????
(for now, maybe there is a loop hole, but is this a lasting feature?)

battery drain fasterrr. Not rekomended for wifi hotspot

It's a mobile phone, not an industrial wimax router! You can perfectly use this at your office if you plug it in the charger! Internet all day baby!

alicia454

Does anyone know how to force the Loader to provide OS installation options? I only see the "Wireless Music Sync" option. (See below for details.) Any help is greatly appreciated.

...

I have downloaded and installed "9900jAsia_PBr7.1.0_rel196_PL5.1.0.75_A7.1.0.74.exe".

In addition, I have removed the "Vendor.xml" from:

${APPDATA}\Research In Motion\BlackBerry\Loader XML\Vendor.xml
and
C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Vendor.xml"

And ran

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Research In Motion\AppLoader\Loader.exe

But after "Retrieving Device Configuration", I only see the "Wireless Music Sync" option, and don't see any option for upgrading the OS.

alicia454

I found the solution was to append the option "/nojvm" after the Loader.exe, to force the OS install!

I have confirmed the new 7.1.0.74 OS, but I still don't see the NFC option in "Manage Connections". :(

Any suggestions on any hacks to enable NFC on my T-Mobile 9900 bold?

fastrx

what are the settings for ATT hotspot?

alpinechem

My mobile hotspot on Telus work awesome, no UMA not available yet,because Telus is stupid.
- I tested with my 32GB playbook and I was to connect , excellent speed.
Few things I noticed that are not working:
1. My bluetooth on my Telus Bold 9900 is not working. It comes on for few second and offm
Anyboby experiencing the same issue?
2.I cannot BBM 6.1
Hotspot is cool, but I need that bluetooth working so I can transfer file between my phone and playbook

kelton

I ask again.... the big question:

Is this just some sort of **temporary** fun and free feature?.... or is RIM and the provider going to allow BB users to get free wifi off their phones??

tediprude

Will this happen for the 9810? I sincerely hope so. It's almost as though the 9810 doesn't even exist.

No themes, no new OS. What next? My guess is nothing?????

Peace...

avelvethammer

9810 had an update....

9810AllLang_PBr7.0.0_rel1672_PL5.0.0.544_A7.0.0.353_O2_UK.exe

it is a nice one too....you may find it forums. No Hotspot......yet.

avelvethammer

The NFC does not show up on mine. I am AT&T. I will say this....the build is pretty good, no lags or reboot loops. The reboot is quick....does anyone have a little buzz at the beginning of the reboot. It is only for a second. No big deal, thought it was strange. I did NOT need the user name and password when using the Hotspot....worked great. Curious to see how it will do when i am in an area with EDGE.

igotberryfever

yeah i get a buz on reboot too.

igotberryfever

Awesome stuff. Works great with AT&T without a teathering plan. :) and it must not go thru bis cuz i am pulling 8 mbps with my playbook and only pull 1.5 mbps max thru bis

jdaclutch

I'm getting almost 8mb download speed too, but only .67 upload though, I'm with tmobile.

igotberryfever

Thats awesome! upload is never good unless its fiber transported!!

CrackBerryDoctor

Clean download from the forum link. Wifi hotspot works - Telus Bold 9900. NFC still here too.

Jrbrass

Figures, lol. That is the reason why I left Blackberry for the Apple Iphone 4S. Blackberry is always trying to catch up. Putting out new phones without updating the old ones. Rimm (Blackberry) stock used to be $134 per share and now it's in the $20's. They still don't get it, lol.

Will wait for the official update but that is good news indeed.

and still nothing... i get a "a network error occured" message on my playbook, i also tried my 9900

Whats really awesome about this besides the fact that it works without a theathering package, is the speed i can stream epix, amazon and you tube full movies without buffering on my playbook. :p This is a winner for me :)

Waiting for the next release with more languages. This one only has 6 languages in it.
Bummer!

mishoberry

after 1 day of using this new version OS7.1 i am facing 2 things

1- not all languages are available

2- i dont think its stable at all ... u will find it very fast and stable for like 8 hours or so but suddenly u see it silent and i wonder no body is sending me any message on BBM !

so i just restarted my BB9900 and after it started up i get like 6 or 7 pending BBM messages !

i have faced this problem 2 times in 1 day

so am going back to 7.0.0.540 even thought i loved the hotspot feature but i care about stability

bendiep1991

Works great so far for me!

These are my findings so far!

-The alert sound bug hasn't occurred yet! (So maybe fixed)

- Mobile Hotspot

- The touch functionality for the 'Clock' has changed

- Reboot time is faster

ALL of the very common questions asked here are answered on the Crackberry site, just use the search feature in the forums and you will find detailed answers and step-by-step directions on "how-to".

Typically, your many "noob" questions will be ignored on threads like this one which assume a certain basic Blackberry knowledge.

So, search the forums for answers and leave room for comments on how this leak is actually working, what's new and what apps still work, etc. Also, 50 "I am downloading this now" comments are not helping anyone...think about it.

If someone would be kind enough to post the download link minus the vendor.xml file, it would be appreciated. I don't know what I'm doing wrong but I can't get the download to a destination on my PC where the vendor.xml file is shown.

Much appreciated, fellow crackberry people!

After loading OS 7.1.0.74 last night, i noticed that in the BB menu the last letters on everything is missing. anyone else see this? or is this just on my phone?

gitchies

Yep, mine is that way too!!! Gonna revert back to previous leak...can't seem to get my hot spot to work. I may have to call rogers and get them to enable something for me.....

apo-onbberry

can someone help me, I can't load the os I've installed on bbsak.

The update is no longer available through the link...When will T-Mobile USA have it? If not soon where can I download it?

AfroZepher

Who the hell knows. . .T-Mobile seems like they will be the last ones to update anything. . .and seems like they will really take their time when it comes to NFC. . .MY BB is slow and choppy at times and I'm hoping for an upgrade to fix that. I want to load a legitimate OS update but guess that won't happen any time soon. . .

anyone experienced phone freezing after using short code like *100# on my carrier to check balance?
other than that..All work great! :)

tinny24

would it work with my playstation 3 or is that me just being stupid?

I swore I would never do drugs or become addicted to anything.... Thanks RIM for making me a liar, I can't put this bitch down lol

kevmanoeil

What's the point of using the desktop software and doing a backup and restore if my app settings are all wiped and I have to configure everything again! RIM has to figure out how to save my settings and put them back the way it was!

I have noticed big problems after I updated to this leak. Missing letters from words in menus, mostly "T" and "Y". No search bar in the browser at the top. Browser crash all the time. Can't scroll down using the touch pad in browser.

works perfectly! i tried the hotspot feature using a prepaid (gophone) sim, and it did work!!!!

bendiep1991

BOO I restarted my phone and it got bricked with this OS boo

dadobuns

I installed this version and had good success with UMA/hotspot but my antiquated BB headphone won't work. Tried 3 different pairs, got a loud screech each time and the person on the other line is unable to hear me. Anyone else this happened to?

bendiep1991

When you press the BB key to make a new folder. There's a spelling error. It says 'Add Folde'

cooljackz

Works great on my phone. I like the Edit button on each of the contact. Changing your friends' contact details it a whole lot easier...

mike22

Tmo is okay uma and hotspot work !
but too many bugs still-
letters missing,frezz,bricks then need to reload os, when making call on UMA some times cant hear the person on other end of call,beta testing stuff dont work.
tested for a week and these where my findings. THIS os is headed in the right direction ! when official rel comes out it should be great.

Been running this leaked OS on T-mobile network for 2 weeks:

Pros
UMA works fine
Bluetooth is fine
Hotspot would work if I wanted to pay for it
Contact edit - Not sure what's different, but it just seems like editing takes a few less steps

Cons
-Notepad forces cursor at the bottom, which would be ok if I had a shortcut to get back to the top. And some of my memos take 10 seconds to scroll through. If you want to "find" something in a memo, you have to be already at the top, so that's an extra step. And the main reason I'm downgrading.

-Spelling errors in menu

-Dictionary missing so many common spellings - If you want to add them on your own, be my guest.

-Ringtone forced silent - Not sure what's going on here, but after an uptime of 24hrs, it just decides to not ring. I miss calls and text for no reason.

-19 character sms limit. Anything after 19 characters just vanish in to thin air! This is only happening with one friend, but it's still strange. She gets text fine from everyone else, and so do I. Not sure what's going on here.

-media player - I noticed the previous/next GUI buttons were cut short. Reboot fixed it though.

Overall - Not worth it, I wish I would learn my lesson in regards to upgrading to a leaked OS.

Had the phone just over a month and my LEFT CAP key fell of the phone... I have the insurance but tmobile wants $130 to replace a button worth a nickel! Is it just me or is the build quality of phones going straight down the shitter! Old blackberries had a solid rubber keyboard. And apparently the 9900 has individual keys. So, if you type a lot, which is why you have a blackberry to begin with; be prepared for the buttons to show up missing around the 5th week mark! Good job RIM!

I love it, WI-FI UMA everything working whit my T-Mobile 9900

axleberry

whats going on with the mobile hotspot for att? it was working and now its not. did they dissable it?

krajani786

ok, so i have had mobile hotspot from a few leaked/hybrid OS on my 9900. I just went to Ottawa for the weekend and tried it out. I just got told i have a $1500 phone bill for 105MB of "TETHERING"

Not all carriers will let you use your phone's Data. Some still treat it at packets/apn type of data. BE SURE!!

I am with bell mobility and i would assume many other Canadian providers will do the same.

any questions about how i found this out, how to look it up on your bill ask me. my pin is 27f40b07

flip0881
