    Anyone got any questions that I can find in there? Be realistic when asking the questions and I'll try to answer it for ya, **IE Shortcuts for something, etc**

    EDIT: The manual is pretty basic so I'm not finding any SUPER cool info, but I am only skimming at the moment.

    Here is one find... addressing previous questions about software upgrades.

    Prerequisites: Upgrading the BlackBerry Device Software over the wireless network
    • Your BlackBerry® device must be connected to the wireless network.
    • The battery power level must be 50 percent or higher.
    User Guide Receive a device password prompt before you add an application
    186
    • If you have installed the BlackBerry® Desktop Software on your computer, your device must not be connected to your computer.

    Doesn't mention needing BES or anything,

    EDIT: Also an option to downgrade within 30 days

    Do they show what it looks like when you are getting an incoming call? I haven't seen this yet. If you have picture caller ID set up, would the pic be full screen? Or at least most of the screen? Thanks

    I think we're all curious if there is anything in there that might have more concrete info on GPS and whether a third party app besides BB Maps can utilize it....??...

    if you download the simulator you can see what it looks like... or you can see it here Blackberry Storm Simulator and JDE 4.7 Beta now available on RIM’s website : Boy Genius Report

    GPS: Nothing concrete, take from it what you will


    View a list of points of interest near a location
    You can search for points of interest such as businesses, airports, schools, parks, or landmarks.
    1. On a map, press the Menu key.
    2. Click Local Search.
    3. Type the point of interest information.
    4. Press the Enter key.

    And you also have

    Get directions
    1. On a map, press the Menu key.
    2. Click Get Directions.
    3. Perform one of the following actions to specify a starting location:
    • To specify your current location, click Where I Am.
    • To specify a new location, click Enter Address. To type location information in specific address fields, select the Advanced check
    box.
    • To specify a saved location, click Favorites.
    • To specify a location for a contact, click From Contacts.
    • To specify a recently viewed location, click the location.
    4. Select or clear the check box beside one or more route options.
    5. Repeat step 3 to specify an ending location.
    To get directions from the ending location to the starting location, press the Menu key. Click Reverse Directions.

    Not sure what that adds up to, never used anything but vz navigator and never been one to delve into not paying, so my knowledge on GPS is very limited

    I remember a few days back someone had pictures of the storm and there was a geotagging option under the camera settings which hints loudly to open gps
