More VZW official release info....
talked to a corporate dude from verizon yesterday, and i was asking him why they were taking so long with an official update. he told me that they had a meeting concerning "customer concerns" and the OS update was in the top 3 of concerns. what he told me is that there are still some security when it comes to email and browsing, but that those problems are the last hurdle before the release. but of course, i got no timeline from the guy. just good to know that they are on the last stages before the release. but who knows how long that stage will last.....lolBe BOLD

Congratulations! You've just posted the 10,000th useless official vzw os update thread! There's no prize, just as there's no use in me posting this in here.

Hello! You're seeing this message because:
[ ] You posted a thread about the iphone being ZOMG way cooler than the Storm
[X] Your Verizon Rep gave you HOT NEW INFOZ
[X] You "know a guy" who told you top secret information about forthcoming releases
[ ] You have enlightened us all by telling us when a new OS is being released, and you are clearly 100% correct
[ ] You don't seem to be able to locate the "Rants" forum so you've graced us OS forum-goers with your brain droppings
On behalf of everyone else here on Crackberry I'd like to:
[X] Beat you about the face and chest with a trout
[X] Thank you for your earnest efforts to keep the masses so well informed
[ ] Remind you that your opinion matters, and we are all very happy to now know precisely what it is
[X] Encourage you to look around a little bit before you post this kind of crap again
[ ] Shake your hand
Have a great day!

Seriously, these threads show the true stupidness of CB posters. Actually, just the CB Storm posters.
If you hear something from any VZW employee, just shut up. It's not correct, it's not going happen and it's just flat out a lie.
So, save the thread garbage and just tell your dog.

He means well. Sometimes rumors become reality. The informal grapevine is very powerful. Anyway- I was at a retail Verizon store last week. The reps were real sweet and laughing it up. They were hi fiving everyone and I said want to here a Verizon joke - they were like uh oh. I said why are you hi fiving each other? Did a Verizon Storm OS come out. They had no clue what I was talking about. I said I guess you don't personally use the Storm - they said no.

Hey OP, I personally like these threads.
Kind of breaks up the monotony of the "I just tried to update my OS but I can not follow directions and my phone does not work, so now I am turning to a bunch of people who I never meet before and asking them to fix it for me" threads.
So if you do not mind being hit around the upper body with a nice brown or cut throat trout, please keep it up.
Every one should have a laugh once a day. Just my 2 cents.

some people on here are way too damned serious. If you don't like this type of thread, don't read them, let alone comment in them. The OP was trying to be helpful. Just because:
[x] You didn't get laid last night
[x] Your wife did
[x] You just realized your child bears a strong resemblance to the mailman
[ ] Your mother-in-law is visiting
[ ] Your boss took credit for your idea yet again
Is no reason to come in here bashing. You should be used to these kinds of threads by now, and have realized that all the b!tching in the world is not going to make them stop.
Please go hire a hooker and beat up the mailman. That's where your frustration belongs.
PS: Thanks Andy, this is fun stuff!

People people people , can we not be at least a little civil , all he did was provide info , he gave no dates , no build number , there for no speculation , so dont bash him for making a post that is better then 3/4 of the ones that have been made lately .Lost count of how many phones I have had.
