Can I install Bell .122 on my Verizon
Can I install the official bell version 18.104.22.168 on my Verizon Storm? If so, will everything work the same as it does now or will I have any problems? Any help would be appreciated.

Yes you can but in order to install it you will need to go to C:\ProgramFiles\CommonFiles\ResearchInMotion\Applo ader and delete the Vendor.xml file. After you delete it, plug in device and double click on the Loader.exe file in the same folder.

Sure can, I did it last night.
Just be sure to delete the vendor.xml file before installing or the installation will fail.
Personally, I would recommend it. My phone works much smoother/faster now.
If you have any questions I would recommend looking through the post for .122. Most of the questions are answered there already.

John yes you can install .122 on your Verizon Storm. I have already done it and will say it is well worth it.
You will not lose any functionality and everything works without any problems because you are Verizon and the release is for Bell doesn't matter. As CX already stated many times all you have to do is delete the vendor file.
There is no need to wipe unless you want to but it is advised to do a backup prior to upgrade via the desktop manager.
Just follow the instructions CX gave in her download post and download it.

I had never done an upgrade on my Storm that was not an official Verizon release. I just couldn't wait any longer for Verizon to step up. I upgraded my .75 to .122 and whoa...what a difference. Much nicer. Works like a champ. No problem at all.

i know i need to back up my phone and also 3rd party apps on the DM. is this just to be safe in case it bricks? when i download .122 will it transfer all my info like phone contacts, just not third party apps? or will those auto transfer as well? so i should not have to transfer anything except 3rd party? i'm confused what actually automatically transfers over. please help.

When you upgrade your os it backs up your phone anyway, but if it fails during the upgrade you could be screwed. By backing it up first, if something goes wrong you are safe.
