    Dear BigFeat,

    First of all, let me thank you for the BB Connect info. Over the years, I have relied on your feedback to work with the software. I used your instructions (posted elsewhere) two years ago to install BB Connect on my old P910i. It worked fine. Now I have P990i. Based on your instructions, again, I was able to install and work with BB Connect. The other day, I used the update service to upgrade the firmware. Then the nightmares began. Now I can NOT connect. The status says "Not connected". I was on the phone with RIM and TMo but with no luck. I was able to change the internet account priorities to make it BES Blackberry.net as #1. Still no luck. At this time, I seek your help to see if you know any thing else. Can I go back to old firmware (If so, how?) Are there any IP address setting for the BES account?

    Please help.

    Thanks and have a nice day.

In addition, the BB connect software fails to pause while you're on a voice call at times, therefore, becomes proned to early termination. In case you have not had to restart your phone daily any way, then this shouldn't hurt. The auto-restart for maintenance has plagued a lot of P990i owners. This hopefully should be fixed with the future firmware upgrades. Again, I don't think this has to do with syncing issues on the BB connect software + server side.

    For BigFeat & M8

    The software worked. Thank you very much mods.

    The internet works simultaneously as well. I still can not connect to WiFi though. If you the solution, I would appreciate the help.

    Nonetheless, I can't thank enough you both.

    Have a great day.

    I was wandering if one of you guys would please email me or PM me the 3.45 version of the Blackberry?

    I need my P990 for work and I updated to the new firmware version, so I can't get the BES to work. I have 3.37 installed now, BTW.

    I would greatly be appreciated!!!

    To all true P990 playas on this board (eg, BigFeat, Artesa, L Bo, etc).....what are the real benefits to upgrading to BBC 3.45? I am presently using my p990 with BBC 3.37 on T-Mo USA. Runs so smoothly it brings me tears of joy every day. Losing this perfection would be a tragedy of Shakespearean proportions.....so gentlemen, I ask u......is the upgrade worth the risk?

    Whilst I still have the old firmware, I'm not updating (but do have the SIS ready).
    As far as I'm aware the only benfits are: works on the newest firmware; works on W950i.

    I will be updating the guide this weekend along with everything that is needed. So far it's been working great for the past few days for me. Some bugs appeared to be ironed out.

    Per BigFeat & M8' suggestion, I upgraded to 3.45. Only because I upgraded to new firmware. 3.45 is a must for new Firmware. It works fine with TMo USA
