    I'm a storm "AT&T converter" so I'm in a slightly different boat than the standard verizon users who are using betas...

    I've upgraded to .99 with generally no issues except one big one-- I keep getting a lot of edge instead of EDGE, which basically means I don't have a data connection.

    I saw a thread elsewhere that mentioned a similar problem but it was EVDO vs CDMA1x, so at least there was some data connection there...

    I know I'm in the minority being an AT&T converter, but if anyone has any info about .99 and this type of issue, any responses appreciated.

    I am an ATT storm user as well. This is a known issue from what I can tell from searching the forums. I ended up going back to .90, eagerly awaiting the next leak.

    For those who do complete this procedure, please comment here on what radio software you reverted to, and what kind of experience you're having with it.

    i went back to .90 software radio files......also when using crackutil to do the service books it will say the version of software that you took the radio files from....dont mind that and go by what your phone says in options/about

    Ive been having EDGE issues since the I've gotten the phone. I never ran .75. As soon as I got the phone i upgraded to .85 and so on. Each OS was the same on a reboot. 2 out of 3 times i would have edge and I would have to reboot to get EDGE. From the moment I installed .99 i had edge then it would flucuate between edge and EDGE and after 2-3 minutes stay on EDGE. Its seems to be getting better but it should be as fast as when I have my curve at finding EDGE. With how stable .99 has been for me, if this could get fixed I'd be very happy.

    I ran the diagnostics and reregistered my unlocked 9530 on att with the same issue and that cleared it up for me.

    once mine connects to EDGE it stays there. I only have issues after a battery pull or restart. Croe mentioned he did the diagnostic test. When I run it I get this:

    I'm in AT&T as well and I had the same problem...ran the diangostics and worked for a bit but then dropped back to edge whenever I tried to access a browser other than Blackberry and would turn back to EDGE after a while. If it didn't I would need to power off and reboot. I just downgraded back to .86...guess I'll try Sith's fix...other than that the .99 worked great..I had no issues with any other app. Anyone figured out how to keep the browser icon after a software upgrade/downgrade without reloading the service books and reinstalling the daemon file??

    Using .99, my Storm can sometimes take a little while to go from edge to EDGE after a reboot, but once it does make the transition it is locked in and doesn't change.

    Nope.. tried doing it without it but had no browser even if i sent the service books from ATT. I used CrackUtil to make the process a little easier, instead of pltaylor's original method...but i havent found a way around it.

    Also, I followed Sith's guide for the hybrid .99 and its working perfectly!!
