Right. Ronen advocates carrier’s not being involved or being less involved in the firmware release process. So here we have ATT releasing a firmware and it breaks stuff. Yeah, so what’s the point RIM? You waited for a carrier to release this and it still broke stuff. So RIM needs to a) do a better job of internal QA/QC and b) don’t wait for a carrier ok since that obviously doesn’t matter.

The team over at BGR are all over this news like a rash. Seems AT&T have pulled their latest BlackBerry Bold firmware upgrade citing issues affecting the interaction between device and network enhancements being deployed.
There’s no news of when a replacement will become available but (sarc) “rest assured, the technicians over at AT&T and RIM are putting in some overtime to get this issue sorted”… Give us a break…. Just release v5.0 already and be done with it RIM…

I find it that OS usually works a lot better when I use a beta than when I use one thats officially released by a carrier, for example 184.108.40.206 work great when it leaked, upgraded to the official release from Rogers I believe, OS worked like crap, so decided to bump it up to 5.0 my phone works great besides the fact that some apps don’t work, but performance wise is awesome. Carriers wait a century to release it anyways by that time the best stuff out is the leak versions, so what’s the point. I haven’t really used carrier issue OS more than a few times so what’s the point on waiting for their approval anyways.
