Let me make a recommendation. Instead of using the Boost mobile OS 5.0, which has huge memory leak issues, use a hybrid OS from Nathanix.com. They regularly update their OS and the latest ver 8 is very stable. I've used Nathanix hybrids for my last three OS reloads and each one is better than the one before. You can save a ton of free memory if you shrink the hybrid OS before installing. Another memory saver is installing default ringtones on your memory card and do not load them with your OS.
Thank you for that heads up. Just got my BB yesterday and found that update on the Blackberry website. That might explain why my phone slowed down a bit after installing only 2 applications, I figured it was just because the standard memory was sort of low. I'm def. gonna check out Nathanix !!
There is a tutorial section that explains how to install the hybrid. Give yourself about 2 hours for the complete process. Of course make sure you have a back up. The browser is extremely faster than the 4.5 browser and the calendar function is great! You can set an unlimited number of alarms through the calendar; weekday, weekend alarms; monthly Verizon bill payment reminders, etc. Let me know if you have any problems, but the guys at Nathanix are extremely helpful.
Holy crap does it ever leak memory. I tried the hybrid, but hosed something up and went with Boost for ease of install... I can't go a full day without a battery pull. It's awful. Time to try the hybrid again.
