    I noticed at some point today that my accelerometer was getting really hokey and that is when I started getting mad at storm. I was also having problems with it wanting to be super slow. I had also lost the "wireless update" option in the advanced options menu. This has fixed most of that. I'm not saying it's perfect, but a little better!

    So can someone explain to me why a 9500 OS would work on a 9530?

    This is not a 9500 update; this is the current shipping software for the 9530. Most US Storm owners will not need to use this because they already have v65 platform82. Some folks (like myself) accidently downgraded their platform because the cd that ships with the Storm has a lower platform version than was installed on the phone. The link in this thread will restore those phones back to platform82.

    Do not confuse this thread with a separate thread containing a link to the Vodofone update.

    I think I accidentally downgraded my phone earlier. Now it reads v4.7.0.65 (Platform 4.0.0.76). I didn't notice any difference at all, and everything is stable, so I'm just sticking with this until something newer comes out.

    The biggest problem that I had was the accelometer. When I got the phone I didn't have a whole lot of time to play with it, but I remember thinking that the accelometer wasn't nearly as bad as I had expected. After playing around and installing everything, I started noticing that the accelometer was going crazy! When I was walking with the phone, it would constantly change back and forth. That was the point where I was starting to get annoyed with the phone. It wasn't until I started looking through the threads tonight that I realized that I had downgraded it at some point today. Now the accelometer is working great!

    It was a pain in the *** after it downgraded because a bunch of my settings got defaulted. My email, even though the accounts were showing, I had to delete them and set them up again to get mail. PITA, that's why I don't want to bother until a new version.

    Hopefully, this will help with some of the confusion...

    If your Storm is displaying v4.7.0.65 (Platform 4.0.0.82) then you are currently running the most current version and platform. Therefore you do not need to run the current update on the VZW site. If you have accidentally downgraded through the Desktop Manager, you will need to upgrade again.

    The original post in this thread is a link to vodafone, and at the time .82 was up.

    VZW's web site on the support page has the latest os with 4.0.0.82 available for downloading. I'm in the process of loading it back onto my handheld now to see it it corrects the screw up that they created with this downgrading BS.. What a waist of time they have created.

    Not Happy!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Mine says os v4.7.0.65 and platform 4.0.0.82. I did plus it in to the desktop manager and it did some weird upgrade. Is this the software/platform I want? or is there something better more reliable.

    I only did the upgrade because I figured it was newer, it happened on its own when I did the device transfer wizard when I went from my Curve to the Storm. I noticed after I did the upgrade the phone seems slower, or maybe its a mental thing since I am reading about it online.....

    My phone lost a lot of programs, like the internet, application center etc. I got online on the Verizon BIS and resent the service books.

    However you might need to call customer service for them to reset your password on the Verizon BIS
