    BlackBerry Desktop manager has an auto-update program and 5.0 is being pushed out, much like windows updates.

    This isn't Storm specific

    I got the update notice - tell me if you now have a program showing on the programs menu (windows start > all programs) called software manager. I believe it is installed via the update by the media manager from Roxieo(?). I was nether asked if I wanted it installed nor is there an uninstall option via add/remove programs. I could be mistaken that this update caused it but I don't remember seeing it before the update.

    I just upgraded from 4.7 to 5.0 and... WOW! To sync over 800 calendar items and 1500 address book entries used to take about 3 minutes. Now it takes about 45 seconds!

    Hallelujah!





    P.S.: BBM 5.0 rocks, too.

    DM 4.7 on my PC was set to check for updates automatically. Got prompt a couple of days ago to get 5.0. Sweet ....

    Then a funny thing happened ... my Storm is already running the full Mexican OS .151 and when I connected it to DM 5.0 for the first time to do a Backup with it and let it see the Storm for the first time, it immediately came up and told me an OS Update was available for my phone!!! And the Update it wanted to install was of course OS .151 which is already on it!

    Oh, well. I figure it's just because it found .151 installed on the PC. We'll see what happens with the next OS version. I cancelled out of the prompted install request. I saw no reason to proceed with an install of an OS I already have.

    Anybody else have this happen?
