I was reading a post on CrackBerry by Kevin which said that Vlingo has finally had a chance to fix the bugs in their application. All thanks to some dedicated fans in the BlackBerry community Vlingo fixed the bug where T-Mobile and Rogers customers could not use the service. I was worried since I was having the same issue on AT&T but when I finally had a chance to install the new version today it worked. Great work Vlingo!
NOTE: Vlingo does not seem to have been able to completely fix the application for all carriers/devices. For example, in the FAQ the solution for the WiFi problem on T-Mobile is to just turn WiFi off. Make sure to let them know if you are having any problems to that they are aware of the issue.
I love the interface of the application and they seem to have a good idea going especially for a free service. The problem is that Vlingo is just too slow over EDGE to actually be useful. Hopefully with the Bold/3G right around the corner that wont be a problem anymore.
I am glad to see that Vlingo is dedicated to supporting their users. I hope they stick around because the Vlingo solution looks promising. They supposedly still have some tricks up their sleeve with upcoming features. I cant wait!
Vlingo is asking that you uninstall the previous version before you install this updated version. I guess Vlingo is still learning the BlackBerry development quirks. Make sure to check out the FAQ will help you troubleshoot any issues you may have after the upgrade.
