    You make out there are so many more releases for the 9530 but everyone knows the 9500 has more releases and thats why you all complain so much!

    I have a 9500, see my sig as I've installed a few upgrades you dont have listed. I have the original files on my desktop still if you want me to up them?

    i'm a glutton for punishment...i reloaded . 122 again and did everything ..resent the books, restored the backup, pulled the battery ...once again EVERY WORKED except the phone, it sent the rings, (but NO sound when it did) and i recieved rings but the phone was dead when i answered......i give up i'll wait for VZW updates??? thanks for the help.
    Why would you be trying to use .122 which is for other providers other then Verizon?
    For Verizon you should try .132
    For me .132 has been the best.

    Hello all

    I downloaded the lastest .141/5.0 Hybrid and we have BES 5.0 installed at our company. Does anyone know if an official release or unofficial release of 5.0 for Storms? Seams like installing BES 5.0 doesn't give us any new features as it acts just like the 4.7 version. We have Verizon and I know they will finally release theirs when I am old and dead. :-(

    So I am looking for a full 5.0 leak somewhere in the near future for the Storm.

    Thanks for any info you can give me.

    Upgraded to 132 last week and feel OK with it...
    Debating the upgrade to 141. Is it worth it?

    I had .132, and loved it.
    "Upgraded" to .141 and it got kinda laggy.
    I downgraded to .132 and I'm keepin' it.

    Average startup memory on .141- 35 mb

    Average startup memory on .132- 51 mb

    I know everyone has different results, but the choice was clear for me!

    Hi all,

    I've had the 9500 in Ireland (Vodafone) since December and I'm so disappointed with it. It is so incredibly slow and just not comfotable to use. I've been through several upgrades of leaked OS 's and have been running 4.0.0.174 for a while but still have major speed issues with the lock/unlock process and menus in general responding too slow.

    I want to give it one more chance before I chuck it in the bin and switch to something which actually works like the 2nd generation iPhone.

    Is 4.0.0.174 the lastest/best OS for the 9500? If it is then it's bye bye BB for me which is a shame as I've been an avid user and promoter for years but this thing is the worst device I've ever owned bar V1 of the Palm Treo!!

    Can anyone here help to rescue my relationship with BB by pointing me in the direction of an OS which speeds up the lock/unlock and general functionality of the 9500?

    Regards,

    Ben

    Ok....i just got a storm (and please dont beat me for saying this) but i at first wanted to throw it across the room and drop an a-bomb on it. My main gripe is the change between portrait and landscape mode is horrible...and the portrait mode true-type keyboard is horrid.

    Then i hear about an upgrade (non official) 4.7.0.90...where there is a portrait mode full keyboard....and i need to have that. Would save me from using this phone as a hockey puck...

    I have 4.7.0.75...how can i upgrade? Co i go from what i have (75) and go direct to (90)?

    Please someone help....

    I second everything BenEadir said. I am also sick of speed issue with locking/unlocking and portrait/landscape. Using .75 on 9530.

    I'm running a hybrid of Version 5 & .148 and it's great! I do admit .132 seemed a tad more responsive but not so much as to cause me to revert.
