    the v-cast software was updated recently. did you get the new version?

    and leaked OS doesn't void warantee, its just unsupported. those techs are n00bs.

    trust patches, for he is wise...
    And yet you don't work for Vzw

    Yet u are correct it is unsupported which voids the warranty in that we won't service storms with leaked os's till the user downgrades assuming they still can. Semantics.. Go figure

    ustomers NOT on the original approved 4.7.0.75 rev will NOT receive the Poke.(example any non approved software) They may download manually via Web SL( Directly from BB website) starting Sunday May 31 at 10 pm or Desktop manager from VZW.com starting June 3rd.
    Availability sched is as follows:
    This will be an 11 day process as we have 1.2 million customers on BIS and 500,000 customers on BES.(BES administrators will receive Poke on Sunday 5/31 @10 p.m.Customers on BES will need to check with their IT as to when they will receive Poke)
    The Poke will start on Sunday 5/31 at 10 p.m. eastern time.
    MTN's ending in 0 will start the process and move up in numbers over the 11 days.
    This rev will take 19 to 24 minutes to complete depending on options selected, however it can take up to 2 hours depending on service area.
    How do you get the OTA wireless upgrade?
    Website will be updated sortly to show rev 148

    I'm glad for the peeps who now have an official OS whether they can't load a leak or don't want to or whatever.

    But i gotta be honest here, and sorry to go off topic, but i just read thru all 16 pages of this and i am amazed at how many times the same **** was asked and answered over and over. And over. Does anybody read before they ask questions?? All of my questions were answered on the first couple of pages. AND THIS IS PAGE 16!!

    This is why i mostly just hang out in the Rants/Raves and Owners lounge. For the love of sweet God in heaven people...READ!

    K I'm done now.

    EDIT...it was page 16 when i started typing

    Supported vs. warranty are two different things. Warranty is for physical defects. Even if I have a leaked os, if the phone is physically broken due to poor workmanship, they will replace it.

    If I call in to tech support and ask about software issues and I'm on a leaked os, they have no obligation to help me. But then on the same call if I say the screen doesn't click in the corners, they will service under warranty.

    I have never seen a post about denied a warranty claim due to a leaked os.

    Today Verizon Wireless said that it will be offering the 4.7.0.148 firmware build for the BlackBerry Storm on Sunday, May 31. Interested users can download it directly from Research In Motion starting at 3PM EST on May 31, or wait for the over-the-air download, which will be pushed out starting at 10 PM EST Sunday evening. This is the first official update from Verizon Wireless for the BlackBerry Storm since December 2008, when it pushed out 4.7.0.76. Verizon didn't specify what the firmware update will fix or alter on the Storm.

    Someone posted congrats to the patient ones....i say, suckers you could have had a better OS sooner if you had installed a leak or hybrid.
    Big deal guys..this .148 isnt going to be any different than what has been leaked, and improved upon as a Hybrid.
    So, enjoy your improved OS....the rest of us will are already beyond .148

    Just a question for the future: I'm currently running Lyric .148/5.0 hybrid and I was wondering that if 5.0 comes out for the Storm (in a few months or so), could I downgrade to an official OS and then upgrade to 5.0?
