    Whatever you do, don't disconnect from the computer till it says it is finished, or you get an error message. It often appears like the process is stuck, but let it go, it just takes a long time in some spots, like reconnecting to device, and initializing device.

    Yes, that's the backup/restore I was referring to.

    I usually save the installer file and third party backup files in a folder somewhere. You might need it later.

    If memory is that tight in your PC, delete the installer file. It can always be downloaded again if you need it.

    Now that he's installed it, it's a moot point, but why is he running Sprint's OS?

    I know it's also moot as far as OS's go, but VZW recently approved .131.. He could have directly installed it.

    Oh well.. Like others mentioned, that should rectify the vast majority of your problems there Kaz..

    XL - great job working with kazuma! :-) glad it's working out well!

    @kazuma - if space is at a premium on your PC, one option might be to store your installation files on the BlackBerry media card. That way you would always know where they are.

    Incidentally, I have a company-issued VZW Curve and our IT policy requires using only vendor-approved OS. I have 4.5.0.77 and have not upgraded to VZW .138 because there appear to be quite a few problems. If I could load .131 I would :-)

    UPDATE:

    The new OS is doin great. Its even managing my sd card info better!

    Multiple apps havnt been a problem so much. Still a little laggy but I'm picky like that! Havnt had the problem of text lag as of yet either! All of my third party apps appear to be fine, had to re register a few but who cares right there still there! Phone book and saved messages all carried over with out a problem! Internet seems to load just a tad bit faster, not much though. And I havnt seen a video randomly pause on its own yet!

    I'm still erasing caches and soft reset once a day but that's out of habit more than anything. Ill try and stop and see what she does under load so to speak and see what happens.

    The 4.5 OS from sprint seems very stable! I had one random reset yesterday that the BB did of its own free will. Believe that to be my fault tho. The reset went smooth and fast. My file free memory seems to stay around 41 now which is awsome!

    SO A BIG THANK YOU IS DUE TO THE CRACKBERRY COMMUNITY!

    Thanks X! I love my BB again! Lol
