    While it is not "official" from Verizon, you can download version 4.5 from BlackBerry. They no longer check for your carrier and what your most current version is. You don't have to edit any files either.

    I did the download this afternoon and everything went smoothly. It only took around 15 minutes to do.

    Yes you can install the 4.5 from BB.com, but will not supported by VZW and is not tested with other VZW concerns that VZW has on the phone. I am sure it will work for you though

    As far as I can tell you have to connect your BB to your computer. There is no OTA download link.

    When you change your OS do all of your OTA apps get loaded back on your phone?

    When I go from their site using the device software on their site it tells me I already have the latest and it wont let me install anything using their AppLoader. I am running 4.3 right now. Not sure if the reason why it wont let me update is because I am also on BES.

    4.5.0.77 cannot be the official vzw release with the known bugs. i mean, the automatic flash doesn't even work when using the video recorder. also there is the speaker phone issue when receiving a call.

    I too have downloaded 4.5.0.77

    the only difference i see is more file free memory (from 18 to 21)

    i no longer have preloaded pictures (i have no idea why)

    i do not see an option for docs to go (is that BES only?)

    i have not been able to read html emails (I still get link codes for pics etc.)

    so my question is...

    what's the point? Everyone was so excited for this upgrade and besides a small memory increase i dont see anything real special about it...

    sigh....anticlimactic...

    I guess I'm still going to wait for Verizon to release. I saw at the top of this post the 10-10-08 which I'm sure is not right.
    I hope it won't be much longer.

    My BB runs so well right now and Empower Email is pretty decent so I guess I'm not in a hurry to screw around with it.

    Likewise, no issues with me either. The 4.5 i ran awhile back from MTS mobility, .56 version was exteremely buggy and had terrible memory management. The version i am running now is alot better...

    Just do your research before hand. Know how to install the Doc to Go option (Wont install unless you tell it to specifically) Also after the upgrade I would resend your service book using the VZW BIS site. My 4.5.0.77 upgrade went pretty flawless. I did the research and made sure I had plenty (at least 2 hours) of free time to do the upgrade and work out any issues I ran into.

    Hmmm....if the last 2 digits are higher than .77 I am jealous cause you would win on a Price is Right spin off.

    Talked up a rep. while getting some tech. assistance. He said he had it on his BB, but felt VZ was still holding it back due to minor bugs. He of course had no idea when it would be released by VZ officially.

    Of course you will get 10 different answers. If the reps would stop guessing and not tell folks what is HEARD!, rather I do not know there has been no info given (which is true) then we would not be having this conversation.

    There are issues with .77 on Verizon, even if you don't notice them. If they choose .77 for the official release I"m going to laugh at them!

    1) Sound comes out of the speaker for 2 secs when you answer a call.

    2) Default ringtones missing (however this could have just been an issue with the BETA release of .77)

    3) VZNav starting on its own whenever it feels like bug.

    4) Flash issues on 8330 for some people.


    I think if VZW releases a version it'll be the .89 version instead. That's the latest in carrier testing now for CDMA.
