    During WES last week, it was said to roll out sometime this fall.

    Does sometime this fall = sometime next spring?

    It seems like there will be no new software upgrades to the Storm until 5.0 comes out, which means probably that Storm users will go a year or more without a software update that fixes even the most basic device bugs. That's too bad.

    True Darwin, but I think 99% or more of Storm users are looking for a stable release. If 2 million people own a Storm and 100,000 people have downloaded a leak (a generous figure) then there would still be 1.9 million people who are either unwilling or unable to download a leak. That's a lot of people left in the dark.

    Yeah you think RIM would know how many people are having problems with the phone and all the porblems that are going on and they would try to push it out even faster

    Heh heh, like .75 was a stable release?

    I would bet the vast majority of people who come into this forum do indeed upgrade.

    I would agree however that the majority of people (not 99%) out there don't upgrade but I think that's mostly because they arn't aware of updates available. The rest are just scarred.

    RIM knows how many people are having problems with the phone since they knew the OS had bugs before it was released and since they are leaking incremental fixes for some leaks. I think Verizon and RIM are not working well together to release an update. The reason the iPhone official updates and patches are pushed more often is because ATT stays out of Apple's business, whereas RIM and Verizon are attached at the hip.

    It's coming out Friday, May 15 at 4:45 PM. That's an absolute from a mole placed high up in the RIM organization.

    AND....it's being released OTA through Verizon. They have been testing and officially approved the OS this past Monday. That is from another mole I know that is placed high up in the Verizon organization.

    This stuff is all true.

    Yeah, why is no one even discussing the next potential leak. Before every other leak people would be speculating about it but since .141 nothing...

    Where and what is the next leak cause .141 is killing me battery, signal and locking wise.

    Try Lyricidal's .141/5.0 hybrid. It's easy to install and the battery life is back to normal (good). It uses the radio from 132 so your battery doesn't burn up trying to find a signal all the time.

    I was having very similar battery issues with .132 as well so I may have to go back to .109 which (if I recall) was the best for me.
