there's also this thread on it
Agreed Jimi, I think the OS release will be on the backburner for the iPhone. That really does suck for the people that are really looking forward to an official VzW OS6, that's IF this leak is meant for VzW.

Nobody said anything about Verizon, and knowing n4bb it could easily be leaked instead of official. Not that either of those things matter to me

I was kind of hoping for a leak or official from a smaller carrier, which would leave more speculating time about the VZW future release. I miss that about GSM. So many carriers, the most recent OS might be from JoeBob cellular or whatever.

- It's that flag on the green that I try to hit my golf ball close to.
I'll make my same disclaimer that I have made elsewhere regarding when vzw will release an official:
VZW is now all about I-Trash and Droid, BB has gone to the backburner. I think it will take them 6 to 18 months to deal with the fallout from the I-Trash release. Until then, I fear they will be too busy to deal with or worry about the Blackberry users on their network.
Not that I am threatning to leave vzw; however, I think that if they don't begin to pay attention to the berrys on their network they will loose a fair number of berry users to other networks where they feel they can get better support from the carrier.
I think that vzw execs think that most if not all berry users will convert to Droid or I-Trash rather than leave their network. I believe they may be saddly mistaken, there are lots of die-hard berry users out there. Time will tellBob

Verizon merely offers the network service, everything else is largely (if not totally) controlled by Cupertino.
I guess my point is that i don't see the iPhone creating a huge issue as far as their ability to support existing product lines is concerned.
As far as android, i have to agree 100%.

I am fortunate in that I don't have much use for their BB support. I get most of that here. Most BB users, though, don't know about this forum or have the confidence to do most of the support work themselves. I just use VZW for hardware problems.

There is more memory after install. Including my 25 apps, I still have 304MB free. It seems to find my media card faster; indexes it faster. Browser is still god awful slow and painfully at that. I use Bolt and that sings.

So skype is ONLY for verizon Berrys in the US. Do you know if putting the 433 on Sprint BB would enable me to put skype on it ? Im not using the Berry in the US anyways, im using an international SIM card abroad, so Skype PLUS Wifi would be a very sexy combo for me
