    A search for 4.5 turns up no results in this forum oddly-but am wondering if we have any reason to think we will get that any time soon for 8830 devices on Verizon? Apparently GPS gets enabled in that at least for BB Maps...anyone have any really good reason to think we'll get 4.5 anytime soon?

    From a personal note I do not think the 8830 will get the update. The reason I think this is that it is an older device now and the storm which is also a global phone with a lot more features and runs 4.7. You can keep checking BlackBerry® Software Updates for an update, but would not hold my breath. Also I have heard no rumors internally at VZW that this maybe coming.

    Where did you download from? When I got to the VZW BB site:
    vzw.smithmicro.com/blackberry/

    And choose 8830 and put in my VZW cell number, I get:

    The requested URL /download/8830EFS_PBr4[1].2.2_rel364_PL3.0.0.84_A4.2.2.196.exe was not found on this server.

    If you have the VZW support 800 number that would be helpful also.

    I gather you were responding about the wrong model number "TABSTON"??? Since it says 8330 in your profile.

    Yeah, thanks. I should have looked at the other poster's profile and newbie status (which I am as well).

    If anyone has any concrete [let alone correct :-0 ]info on 4.5 coming for VZW 8830 please do let us know.
