    Hey everyone.
    If this is old news I apologize, but thought it was nice to see.
    My replacement Tour has 4.7.1.61 installed. And trackball works awesome!! Not that it was the OS for the trackball, but the hardware was fixed on this one.

    Since VZW has no official OS upgrade, i would guess you got a refurb and the person who had it b4 installed official .61 from appalachian wireless.
    I could be wrong, just my guess.
    * Eh nevermind what i said .... i guess we all know by now why OP got .61 on his phone*

    I thought VZW was supposed to wipe the phones completely and reinstall the OS though

    Yea, that would be really sloppy if they didn't do that. Maybe they don't. Look to see if there is a celebrity sex tape saved on there.

    My replacement is coming tomorrow. Wonder what will be on there. It's irrelevant either way because I will be loading up 5.0.0.230 as soon as I get it.

    I don't know. I highly doubt they didn't do a wipe, but ya never know. Plus, don't the phones come from RIM anyway that are new or refurb? Wouldn't they take them back to factory defaults?

    the man's not crazy, I got a green dot with the same version on it. I've already upgraded to .230 though.

    Pretty cool. RIM is bypassing VZW to get the most current official OS on the refurb phones. I dig that... kind of sneaky.

    Is .61 More Quicker Than .40?

    Definitely, for viewing photos. Certain difference here. Elsewhere, I would say yes but not for sure. It's no slower, that's for sure.

    Guess this all makes sense now with Verizon releasing the 4.7.1.61 update tonight

    I think it may be in your head. The update was just to fix some bugs, not to improve performance.
