    Ok, you may have shamed me into it....I am very reluctant to upgrade because I do not possess what I perceive is the skillset necessary...also, my Storm seems to run fine-I'm not sure what an upgrade would fix!

    Did you upgrade from .75 to .148? Which of the many threads/links did you follow to do this upgrade?

    Cheers,

    Yes this is true, but if you are a newbie and you make one false move you may be burnt to a crisp. It really depends on which social misfit is on at that point in time.

    Crispy is not always bad , but seriously, ignore the flames and wait for one of the majority of Crackberry users who are usually very helpful. On a blog, flames only hurt if you let them get to you, if you ignore them they usually go away.

    I would just offer 1 caution every time you upgrade you run the risk of hosing your os, losing or data and/or losing your 3rd party apps. None of this is unfixable, BUT it is essential that you follow the back up instructions before you actual update.

    the ability to restore apps manually, or re-download as necessar is a small inconvenience to pay for a seriously large improvement in functionality...

    think of it like you're taking all of the lag and reboot time of one build, and mashing it all into on single block of time and inconvenience and you'll never have to deal with it again after that...
