    thanks this says it all for me. lol.
    BEFORE YOU GET STARTED...
    1. If you are new to BB, you prolly should avoid playing around with your BB's OS and just wait out the official releases.
    i am new to bbs. i guess i'll just have to wate cause i know i'll mess something up

    You should have no trouble at all if you follow the thread step by step. I know it says downgrade, but I've found this is the fastest and easiest way to upgrade also. It is extremely hard to brick a storm.. Just take your time and give it a shot.

    There have been alot less problems with 103. Just look at the threads. Tons of 109 problem related threads. .103 build has been out for weeks and has 1/4 of the problems threads. I would consider yourself lucky that you havn't had any problems. One of the reasons I didn't jump to .109.

    Well i dont buy into the whole each phone reacts diffrently to new OS's - I tried both OS's and hands down .109 is better - i think the more time between official releases just leads to more whining on our part people are looking for problems that arent there - every1 should just compare .109 .75 see if they will complain then
    and btw i highly recomend the upgrade just try it u can always downgrade !
