    Troubleshooting the non-functioning emergency alert app, appears to have turned into a quest. I checked the BB os executable I downloaded from RIM when became available and it is exactly the same as what I just downloaded from Verizon through Smith Micro. I examined the binaries and the CRC32s match, so theres no difference. However, I havent seen a good explanation of the differences between the standard and Multilanguage versions, other than the obvious. Smith Micros download page allows choosing either one, but only shows correct stats for the standard release, even when you download the Multilanguage. Im guessing that the service areas covered for each one has an impact on what the emergency alert app is seeing (and rejecting). The two current VZW releases for are:

    9930cmpttAMEA_PBr7.1.0_rel1737_PL5.1.0.429_A7.1.0. 580.exe - CRC32: CCA6F59B Hex

    9930cmpttjAllLang_PBr7.1.0_rel1737_PL5.1.0.429_A7. 1.0.580.exe - CRC32: 81368775 Hex

    Would anyone be familiar with the systems (and countries) covered by each version of this release?

    No, it adds no clarity and same questions. Still have two versions for the .755 release:

    9930cmpttAMEA_PBr7.1.0_rel2123_PL5.1.0.553_A7.1.0. 755.exe


    9930cmpttjAllLang_PBr7.1.0_rel2123_PL5.1.0.553_A7. 1.0.755.exe

    Thanks for the info, that wasnt coming up for me when I searched RIMs support bulletins.

    If the language package is the only difference, then that particular choice would have no impact at all on the serving market (either localized or by continent)? Once again a RIM technical support person gave me wrong information. Wow, what a surprise.
