Blackberry Tour 9630 updated to 5.0.0.591 3/29/2010

Found a support site for the Tour @ http://support.vzw.com/system_update/bb_tour.html  that says Update coming soon.

 

Crackberry.com found some leaked information that the update will be version 5.0.0.591.

 

Haven't found an official/unofficial change log. But Crackberry.com did list some of the key improvements in the new software:

 

  • Camera - Smoother operation in both camera and video applications.
  • Calling - Improved Bluetooth functionality for last number dialed, enhanced functionality for Voice Activated Dialing in both French and English, improved missed call log showing missed Call Waiting calls, and upgraded Call Waiting caller ID and call timer.
  • Messaging - Improved functionality for reading, sending, forwarding, and deleting SMS messages as well as corrected in-box display when in holster.
  • Bluetooth - Improvements in operation when using VZ Navigator
  • Push To Talk - Push To Talk capability Software Availability

 

 

I'll work on trying to find a more detailed change log for the update, but for now read Crackberry's article aquí.

 

 

Looks like the wait is finally over, folks. Let's just hope it was worth it.

Thanks Chileman,

Thanks for that update.  Just to elaborate a little about the upgrade, or any upgrade for that matter...backup, backup, backup.  Backup your data with Blackberry Desktop Manager before doing any upgrade so you won't lose your data.  If you have never upgraded a Blackberry before, there is any easy to follow website that gives detailed information on how-to upgrade at Crackberry foundaquí.  Good luck,

Doc

Mixer1,

No, the number of characters in an SMS message is still 160.  That will probably never change.

Hola,

The update will be released by Verizon on Monday night about midnight.  You will need to go to http://vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry/  to download the update to your computer.  If you have never updated a Blackberry, you need to read the how-to article at Crackberry.com found athttp://crackberry.com/blackberry-101-how-install-or-upgrade-new-rim-operating-system-os  that explains how to install an update for an OS.  One very important thing is to back up your device's current information such as contacts, etc. so you will not lose any information.  Do that with Blackberry Desktop Manager.

Downloaded version 5.0.0.591 last night and some things do seem to work better.  However, I've noticed that the Mute key no longer puts the phone in standby mode.  Is there a reason RIM/VZW removed this functionality?  I frequently used this in order to conserver battery power while at the same time locking the keyboard.  The lock button does not fully lock all of the keys and if the phone is in your pocket the display will constantly be activated.
