    That's actually not an update. It's the exact same OS it ships with. You need to look at the application number, which is still .65, not .82.

    You wouldn't need it.
    It is the .65 OS for UK, some of the devices where sent out with .61 on it.

    But since it seems you're lazy and/or can't search, here is your link:
    https://www.blackberry.com/Downloads...05D7C424EBAE5F

    It is PACKAGE .82(does not resemble OS version) for the 9500 so VZW users cannot use it.

    I found it easier to just go to the Verizon website, select the Storm, download the software THEY have posted and now my phone works correctly with all the right icons/options.

    Just my 2c...

    right now my info screen under "About" in options says the following.....

    v4.7.0.65 (Platform 4.0.0.82). What does that mean? This is how mine came right out of the box. Thanks.

    I ended up downgrading my platform yesterday as well. Does the platform make a differance? I have left it... seems to be working better.. who knows?

    I was messing around with the Device manager last night and it was downloading an update and my Laptop got the blue screen of death and rebooted.. Bricked my phone for about 3 hours intill I got a new os on it. Thanks in advance.

    Was this in reference to my post about what my storm says under "About"? It currently says v4.7.0.65 (Platform 4.0.0.82). What version does this mean I have? Is there an update to this version that I can get somehow and if so, how?

    v stands for the version of OS. in this case you see you have .65 OS.

    this is what so many noobs are fracking up. On Blackberrys the OS and Platform are different. Sooooo many noobs are claiming they have .82!! Stop it!! YOU HAVE .65. Believe me, when an actual update is available, at least 6 veterans will post, including a Blog post by Kevin, and most likely BGR.

    OK. Thanks. What was this I saw about there being an update available on Verizon website?

    I was told by a director at Corporate Verizon that there should be an update on or by November 29th. Said that he has tried the new update and it made the screen more responsive and greatly improves battery life.

    That is the most current version. The people running around saying they have .82 are looking at the Platform, not the OS. What you have there is what we all should have until VZW releases the next upgrade.
