    I'm pretty sure the VZW Curve 8330 is the oldest BB at VZW that was supposed to get 5.0 OS update yet still hasn't. There's been a lot of releases lately. I hope the (nearly) 2-yr old Curve gets its update SOON.

    Thank you, njaremka! I will check it later tonight when I return.

    Still, 5.0 was supposed to be official on all 8330's at some point...at least, I was led to believe.

    RIM only stated that the 8330 would be supported, not that every carrier would release it officially. currently, Boost mobile has officially released 5.0 for the 8330. that build is the basis for our hybrid.

    true. okay, thanks guys. i'll give it a try once 438.6 comes out.

    quick question...can the bb be downgraded back to Verizon's 4.x OS if a problem arises?

    I started wondering that too just recently. My grandfather has been using with 4.5 and wondering if 5.0 will come out for it. Doubt it though

    Thanks, Nik. Loaded it up last night -- really like it. You guys did a good job.

    I think I may be experiencing a bit of the memory leak that others have associated with 5.0, though. I loaded only the progs that I had in OS 4.7 - nothing new - and I've had the screen, that asks me to delete some progs, pop-up once so far.
    [ Or, it may just be that I can't let the Reuters news prog download maximum content with this new OS -- was using it when I received the "0% memory" warning. ]

    Really curious, though...do you guys think there is a way you can make the flip clock available as the home screen wallpaper? I think that would be really cool to have.

    Looking forward to the next release.

    Thank you.
