    Unless you know her personally, I wouldnt believe what she says. There have been countless rumors about the next OS release. Most I've seen pointing to tomorrow, Jan. 16th. No one really knows. I find it best to just patiently wait it out a day at a time. It'll come when it comes.

    Sad part is, when it does come, it will be something we are all already using (and finding more bugs in)...

    If youre up for it, you could try using one of the leaked OS's, but .75 is a nice stable build so if youre happy with it, stick with it. I dont mind using the leaked ones (Im on .86). They come with some bugs but many improvements. The next Verizon release will most likely be a very good one and I look forward to it.

    I had no less than 3 calls today at the call center asking if there was an official release coming today or Friday because of a rumor they had read online. Well, being an official Crackberry and Storm user, I asked in at least 2 occasions if they read it on CB. I think they are startled that a lowly VZW CS rep...not even a tech support rep would even know what Crackberry is. Then to blow their minds even more, I mentioned that I am using the bootleg .86 on my Storm. Maybe one of you 3 are reading this tonight.

    There is absolutely no information pointing to an official release of a new software for the Storm in the next 24 hours. VZW reps do not get any advanced word on these releases. VZW Reps should not be giving any sort of false hopes. I hope this squelches rumors of an imminent official version appearing on Friday.

    lol...maybe the great Karnack can tell us. Seriously, I am not sure VZW techs get much info on OS updates. We all need to be patient. When it comes hopefully it will be stable and have most of the major fixes everyone is waiting for.
    Of course, we all want the new official OS update YESTERDAY!

    what good is going to the store dont we get email saying theres a release? And dont we update over the air or thrue DM? Also its not like your dumb phone you do the update and hopefully when the so called offical update arrives well still be one or steps ahead, so take a chance and download .86

    Official updates are frequently lower numbers than the most recent leak. This is because the leaks are the still being tested and the official release has been tested for several weeks.

    If you are running a beta release the OTA will not tell you when a new release is available. That only works correctly with your carrier's supported versions.

    You have it about right. Most of the crap you see on CB about the next release is from folks that just don't know VZN !
