    I saw the Boy Genius post too. It did say 4.7.0.141 will be out today and that people will be getting messages to upgrade. I also saw a similar post on engadget mobile. They confirmed the .141 build but said it will not be out til may. I don't know who to believe.

    A person is setting themselves up for disappointment believing ANY date.... All previous ones turned out to be bunk....

    As for .141, seems odd if it were the official OS when VzW is currently testing .2xx.

    How about this............
    Lets all look for a thread from a fellow Crackberian that says I just downloaded official upgrade from VZW to my phone.
    Then we will really know; just a thought

    Well sometimes that doesn't work because that fellow crackberrian claims to be a super secret alpha-zeta tester with Verizon that has access to new crap long before any one else does. And, when asked to show some proof that they have downloaded the latest and greatest, they simply ignore the post.

    Maybe since the iphone is coming to Verizon, VZW is throwing up their hands with the probs and OS with the Storm and is going to concentrate on the iphone.

    Not a chance yet. AT&T's contract with Apple lasts through 2010. IF they are ever going to abandon the Storm, it won't happen for at least a few quarters.

    Found these forums when I was trying to decide b/t a Curve, an 8830 and a Storm (after my previous 8830 somehow ended up in the wash). Thanks for all the help. Just got my (Verizon) Storm today and am already loving it. Interesting this is, v4.7.0.113 came preinstalled. No OS issues yet. Any reason to upgrade to 132 (or whatever the latest Verizon leak is)?

    Does this statement mean that the full KB is .113 and forward or is it just happen to be in .113?

    thanks...

    I think it was introduced in .90 or .99, can't remember now, but it's been available in all builds since.

    It was in the news on TV last night. They were saying it was going to be a blow to ATT's exclusivity.

    I picked up my phone a week ago and have the original .75. Is there an authorized upgrade to that OS similar to what other softwares put out? Not a new OS, just a patch type thing. If not, what is the best of the other available OS? I don't want to "work on" my phone every day, I just want the phone to work. I have read all 37 pages of this post but still have the question.

    Find my post in Rant and Raves in regards to the Storm, I had .75 base and it sucked. Then I had .90 it was a little better. Now I run .113 and it is great so far. No battery pulls, no major issues, everything works great. I have the iberry Xtreme Theme with Quick Pull, Stormlock, Stormslider.

    I would HIGHLY recommend getting Quick Pull. The BB Storm runs slower as you open apps and do not BB then close them out. Just backing out does NOT close an app. Of course every so often I cannot keep track of whats opened and closed but I tried to make it a habit to close when I'm done with something. Quick Pull allows me to just click on the app and select the reset. It acts like a battery pull and resets the phone. You can schedule Pulls too so that it does so every day if necessary.

    No it does not, if you want a full keyboard in portrait you'll have to upgrade to .109 or later, i personally would upgrade to .132 cause its the most stable platform to date.

    VZW Storm going to Telus version .122 from .75, this is my first upgrade. Followed the steps of deleting the .xml file and whatnot but can't get DM to recognize the update. Here's what happens:

    Then I click "Next", It searches for updates again, but shows me this and nothing happens:

    Attachment 23249

    FML! Whats going on here?

    Thank you for any advise.
