    I understand that non-75 users will NOT get the Poke.
    But we can't do OTA either? I couldn't care less about the poke, but if I manually check it next week, it will never show an update?

    Hope this helps.

    Customers 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

    damn, so that's how many are on VZW alone? that's a metric **** ton!!!
    a metric ton of asterisks is quite a high number


    I already have .148 loaded, so am not all that excited about the official release, but I do hope it quiets some of the crying.

    The email being cited isn't sent to customers. There will most likely be an email sent out to customers when the upgrade becomes available through DM.

    How do you like 148? Compared to say, 122, or 132?

    Are these reports (I seen two posters so far I think) of people getting it right now through DM bogus or true?

    (Obviouslly if they downloaded the leak they can get it, but is it coming from big red if you haven't downloaded...)

    Just got the internal email. Rollout starting 10pm on Sunday. On the 31st you can download from blackberry's website (after 10 PM) numbers ending in 0 will get the update first (I believe by ota) and they will work up in numbers. If you are not on .75 you won't get the poke to do the update

    Further clarification. Software .148. Platform 4.0.0.181. Release .203. This is not software 4.7.0.203 it is the same .148 that we are currently using. If you have .148 now you do not need to do anything, they are identical
    If you are running a leaked OS you should still be able to update ota

    you won't get a prompt to download software until you plug your phone in, otherwise it doesn't know what carrier or what model you're using to suggest a software download...

    you are correct, sorry. the release i have installed is .181, with the new release .203 it updated. I went to process this and the changes that DM requested was downgrade the current files that are 5.0.093 on the phone.

    So its basically just a waiting game now until I get a notification that I can upgrade? Or is there a way to tell on what date I can upgrade? BTW, I have a Mac so I dont have DM, I need the OTA upgrade.

    I'm not lying. I just got my storm yesterday, and I just installed DM. When I plugged my phone in for the first time, it opted to update. So I did, and it was .148. So that is what I was looking at. heehee
