    Hey all! I managed to pick up a 9530 on launch date, been loving it ever since! Software is pretty laggy, but I assume that is all going to be fixed.

    I was curious if anyone was running the US operating system on the Vodafone version (9500). I know they got a 100mhz faster processor, and was wondering if this helped the lag issues any, or if our 525mhz processor was what we were stuck with. It never really made any sense why the UK got a 20% faster processor, which could potentially alleviate the lag we are all experiencing.

    Definitely looking forward to exploring this phone more. It is my first BB, and is already miles ahead of my old hardware. Cheers!

    Many thanks. I guess I have thirty days to hope Verizon somehow gets the 9500!

    OS's are specific to model numbers, as psyko suggested. Search the forum. for tweaks to help out with the lag...remove VZ Nav, Visual VMail, etc. Also make sure to check out the tips and tricks sticky on the Storm forum.
