This morning I loaded the MR and had a ton of issues. Programs were not connecting to the Net even though Blazer would. Chatter wasn't working. The lag was still there. BT was still terrible. The phone said version 1.10 but it just didn't seem right.

So I did something a little bit crazy - I re-flashed the firmware. The second time everything went really smoothly and now the phone works pretty well. It isn't nearly as fast as my wifes 700wx when switching between apps. But it is a hell of a lot more user friendly. I guess I'll sacrifice some speed for usability.

When I get a chance to check out the new BB I will. I would go with the iPhone except that I'm not going to switch to AT&T. For now though, the 700p will work.
