    Check it out:

    Software Update: BlackBerry Bold™ 9930 smartphone - COMING SOON!

    And the link:

    7.0.0.374

    According to the .pdf, both NFC and PTT are enabled with this update. Haven't installed it yet.

    So far - so good. Loaded up nicely (from .362). I will report back regarding battery life....

    Curious to see if there's any enhancements over 362 that I've been running for weeks. Didn't see any notes about battery life.

    Ok, all you guinea pigs. Let us know how it's going with this update!

    Also (Don't bash me over the head with this one), but if this supports PTT from Verizon, what happens when we use this update on a different carrier's phone? I know, we delete the vendor.xml file, but does that strip out and Verizon functions and leaves, say, Sprint's that's already on mine? I'm not expecting to get the features, just that it won't foul anything up.

    It's in one of the other leaked builds but I don't think any other 9930's have it carrier supported yet. The 9900, OTOH...

    Just checked with RIM to find out why it is not on Desktop or why Verizon has not sent a notice. Told, it is not yet approved for release and if it causes problems getting it through 3rd party could void warranty. FYI

    ...getting it through 3rd party...
    FYI, the download link is from VZW's server.

    The download link is: http://pcdn1-download.vzw.com/win/A7...A7.0.0.374.exe

    The PDF says: MR1 = 7.0 Release 1739 (App: 7.0.0.374, Platform: 5.0.0.552)

    The download is from Verizon's servers it's not a leak it just hasn't gone live yet.

    Can anyone who has been experiencing the SMS issue (message memory is full or whatever) on their 9930 verify that this bug has been fixed in 374?

    It seems like they have fixed it given the patch notes. Would be interested in seeing a hybrid for the 9900.

    LOL they are still telling people that?

    And as stated above it is an official release downloaded from VZW's own servers so that is not a third party.

    You'll have to wait until it goes live or if someone can find the version for a MAC and post a link. Shouldn't have to wait more than a day or two I'd venture a guess.

    You guys think this one is a no-brainer coming frOm .362?

    Or should I wait to hear about batt life, bugs, etc?

    Could a VZW official possily be worse than one from 'Panhandle Communications' or whatever it is? Haha

    It seems alright this update. Notice the NFC enabled in the top drop down. PTT also but I don't subscribe to that. It seems a little bit snappier. But I notice on the Verizon boot up screen, at the very bottom right corner there is what makes the screen look like, a blown pixel. Weird. No other screens throughout have that at all and I almost flipped. Anyone else, boot up and tell me if you see the same thing. I don't see it on any other backgrounds on that spot. Just the Verizon boot up logo screen.
