    Ok first off, my Storm is incredibly amazing, but it has some down sides. Its kinda slow and it freezes a lot. I have an upgrade available (from 4.7.0.65 to 4.7.0.75) will this make it faster and will this cost money?

    Thanks,

    You should have .75 installed but if not it should be available over the air (OTA)! It is free and from VZW!

    Its free. When I updated from 65 to 75 it helped a lot. OS .90 works even better.

    .75 does not cost any more money. it is officially available from verizon over the web or over the air.

    when you get comfortable you should try the leaked OS's that come out. .90 is pretty sweet

    Nope its free. You will definitly notice a difference in the phone. The upgrade is available from verizons site or an over the air update found under the options in your phone. There are also leaked versions of newer systems but .75 is the only other one that has been made official.

    if you select options, then from there select advanced options and at the very bottom is wireless update. you can select this and it will upgrade you to .75 it's official and its free good luck this will also get you familiar with some of the inner workings of your storm.

    Use BB Desktop Manager. Make sure you are connected to the internet. Choose check for updates and it will download the latest software version to your computer. Go into Application Loader to bring it over to your device. Wireless Upgrade is cool, but I've heard it can take anywhere from 45 minutes to 2 hours to download completely and you can't make/receive calls or anything while it's downloading. Probably best to do it at night or during the time when you experience the least amount of usage on your phone. Also, don't use the leaked versions unless you feel comfortable in doing so.

    Thanks guys. I'm downloading it as we speak.
    And to be honest, I'm a younger BB user, so more than likely, I'll be here a lot!

    .90 in 09!!! That's the slogan for the moment...until the next one comes out of course. .65 is "Telephone ****!" Get that crap off your phone and you'll think you bought something else.

    Im updating right now! Im excited. lol. But will it erase my stuff (pictures,videos,etc.)?
    Also, does your Storm take minutes to turn back on after taking out the battery?

    This is not necessarily true. .90 has been half good and half bad for users. The 2 most stable operating systems (OS) have been .85 or .86. You might still have a few little quirks, but overall, these two are the best. I had .90 and it worked well at first, but then started freezing up. You can try using .90, but if you have problems I would recommend one of the two.

    Good luck and welcome!!!!
