    Any idea or guesses when Verizon is going to put out the new OS update .353 (or whatever it will be)? I have .254 and having the crazy trackpad problem. Was hoping they would put out the new update before trying to trade it in.

    I don't know when Verizon will release an official OS update. I'd guess in the next month or so. They are almost into the .400s for firmware internally I think. There was a rumor that .370 might leak soon for the 9900 (possibly with the 9930 alongside) which could be the official.

    So far .353 has been great for me. Battery is pretty awesome and lasts me all day. I think my only issues are occasional 4-5 second lockups and other very minor gripes.

    I'm also looking forward to the next update and seeing even more polish.

    True. I was holding off on doing the leaked version because I have a mac, and all of the leaked versions are .exe (not compatible). I would have to use another computer to install it = more headache.

    Well I just got an update to .340 when I opened DM. I'm on Verizon so I wonder if this is a Verizon Release or what?

    Actually it probably is, looks like people have been noticing today that DM is prompting them to update to .340: http://forums.crackberry.com/blackbe...update-645503/

    So I'm also on Verizon, but when I try to do an update, it says that I have the current version? What should I be on?

    7.0.0.254

    It's through Desktop Manger which I have set to check for updates. I didn't have .340 on the computer so I was surprised to get the notification.

    I had tried .340 and .353 before but they busted GPS in BB & Bing maps and Verizon Navigator. I had moved back to .254 last weekend. And had deleted the other OS versions from the computer.

    Today, when I got the update notice I went ahead in stalled it. Now the GPS work just fine in BB & Bing maps & Vzw Navigator....

    Whatever, however, it's working fine for me now!

    Yeah I tried that after I read about the other post. However, when I sync to DM, it says I have the current version and there is no update :/

    Verizon told me that a new OS should be out soon and it will include the push to talk option for this device. The one reason I purchased this device was for that option.

    I went through Apploader and it showed an update, so I did it. I still have all the same build numbers, and nothing seems to have changed. Not sure what it did, actually.
