    If you wait for the "poke" to come to your phone, it is a notification that will show up on your home screen. Like getting an email or a text message... except I am assuming it will have its own little symbol.

    And I think it depends on the last one or two numbers of your phone number. They're starting with 0 and working their way up so depending on your number you may not see it for a couple of days. I think

    Huh? Not sure what you're asking. The OS will be pushed out over 11 days... on the first day of pokes, they will start with phone numbers ending in 0... so depending on what your phone number ends with, you may be waiting days to get the poke.

    poke = OTA notofication

    it's in sequential order based on the last digit of your phone number.

    that's all you really need to know

    you can do the DM upgrade as soon as the OS is posted on the blackberry.com website, or you can manually request an OTA before you get the poke. so monday, go into "wireless update" and check for updates.

    I thought it was a little yellow globe and it would show up on you home screen. I could be wrong though. It also might depend on which theme you are using.

    This thread gave me a chuckle. Since we so many storm updates people don't know what the push update is or the icon for it.
