What do you mean by "bloatware"? Rogers adds a small file to the release which allows it to be used on Rogers-branded phones only. That's the only way they alter the original release.
If that's what you meant, I apologize. If not, what do you mean by "bloatware"? 🙂
I, too, am running a leaked 7.1 and I'm pretty impressed with it so far. Gotta love that Wi-Fi hotspot feature! 🙂
I just added leaked 7.1 OS to my 9810 and had Talkspot added to my account to call with wifi. But it wont work. I spoke to Rogers tech support and they confirmed it isnt supported. I couldnt UMa to work - it's calle mobile hotspot in the leaked release.
Does it work for you?
@Torchmania, the Wi-Fi hotspot capability in OS 7.1 is for data transmission, not voice. Wi-Fi calling, also known as UMA (or Unlicensed Mobile Access) has never been supported by Rogers. There is a method for enabling that feature on your BlackBerry, but it involves getting into the engineering pages of your BlackBerry phone and speaking of it in the Rogers forums could well cost me my access to these forums, so I'll say nothing more about it.
I hope that helps you. 🙂
What are you talking about BillJ. Rogers does support UMA for the Bold 9700 & the 8900. I have both & work on UMA as talk spot.. The link will provide you with all the acceptable Phones that can run UMA on Rogers & how much it costs. Also I know the link is for a small busniess BUT i just called Rogers & indeed a Manager & a sells rep did inform me that UMA is still supported on the 9700 & 8900. You need to contact them & they will tell you more. The new version of the phones i do not know if Rogers will allow it to run on UMA but they have not said anything yet.
I've obviously been misinformed. And here I was thinking I knew everything!
I stand corrected on this issue. 🙂
