    The Tour is in a similiar situation that the storm was in when the Storm 2 released. Storm 1 got an OS update around the time, it's successor, the storm 2 was released... now the Tour is getting an OS update around the time the Bold 9650 is released. It's highly doubtful the storm 1 will be seeing any more updates from big red.

    Not exactly. The Tour got an update before the Bold dropped and now is seeing a second one after the Bold released. But VZW also just released and OS for the storm 2 and now a second. There must be something in the .7XX builds that they wanted. Usually it is 6 months between updates.

    I had never seen the Tbaytel download page before that just dropped the storm2 OS. They also have the 9530 and I got 4.7.0.181 from there which I had never before seen for the 9530.

    Any chance this China Telelcom download site is hidden away somewhere like the TbayTel one? ( by the way .181 seems to be awesome at .memory management....better than any 5.0. I haven't dropped below 32 MB with all my apes downloaded)

    Or what are the chances that somebody from China with one of these phones stumbles upon this site? Seems like it should happen eventually.

    Or is there a similar user forum in China?

    There actually are some similar boards in China. Or at least in Chinese. Just google 5.0.0.672. Then translate some of the pages and read through. The translation isn't 100% because some of it makes no sense but clearly people are discussing the storm and the OS level. We might due better trying to figure out the URL....

    If you find one, please have the following translated and posted on their board:

    "Please rip 672 OS and send to United States. Thank you."

    better effort might be to try an figure out the url on rIM's site. As a previous poster mentioned another carrier had a hidden link. Take that link and try an change the url with something that might be for china telecom...

    Ahhhhh...it's a pipe dream.

    I tried searching for a few days too. Even went to china telecoms site and found their mobile page. Google translate wouldn't translate all the links and I did not find a download section. I did come to the conclusion that Chinese advertising is really horrible. It is like they are marketing all their stuff to 5yr olds and all their ads have bright colors in the background, animals and I think they were marketing that pockey candy with a cell phone too......

    Also some of the ads featuring the relase of the 9530 for China Telecom show a different home screen. A few pictures I saw were showing 1XEV and 3G at the same time one on top of the other. It had two signal strength icons too. I'll see if I can find the image and throw it up.

    I am not sure if this site has it, but there is a download and talk of the rom in question. I can't register though to view the download.

    I really do not understand what you're talking, you feel like a first hit and then a bunch of English into Chinese Kingsoft.
    This could be difficult.

    One minute...

    [The_Engine walks upstairs. Sounds of several doors opening accompanied by a dog barking, native american chanting, krayt dragon call, and finally a burst of yelling in Portuguese. Sound of a final door closing. The_Engine walks back down stairs]

    Nope. Let the chinese know that the answer is definitely NOT upstairs.

    I don't know that they understand anything we are saying. Just make up incoherent sentences with random words like they do and then we might be able to communicate better.

    We need someone to go there and buy one. OS tourism instead of sex tourism. It'll be the new rage.

    Maybe this has changed, but I recall reading that China Telecom was only marketing to Companies and not to individuals. That may also explain the "upstairs" comment on the Chineese blogs.
