Which would be easy if the BB AppWorld wasn't such a piece of crap. My Bold 9000 always requires multiple attempts and battery pulls when I try to upgrade software using AppWorld.

RIM needs to take some serious lessons from Apple when it comes to handheld software.

Yea those 2 outages in a week sucked.
I still find things slow, might be the holidays but just takes for ever to send a message.
I am doing a battery pull and cache clear daily

I have a photographic memory, trouble is most times the lens cap is on.
