    Since Verizon BB users on .77 can't use the new BBM, is there a date that Verizon is going to upgrade their OS?

    I would upgrade to Sprint's 4.5.0.131 OS. All you have to do is delete the vendor XML file and it will load up perfectly. OS's are device specific, not carrier. There is plenty of info here on how to do this, this is a very common thing for people to do because some carrier's take forever releasing an update...

    They'll probably have an updated OS about the same time that 5.0 really launches (leaks don't count).

    Have 4.5.0.131 from Sprint running on my VZW 8330. Like he said, delete the Vendor.xml file and install away. You will be happy with the result.

    I must be the dumbest doorknob on the planet! I started the process of backing up my 3rd party apps and my radio signal got turned off and DM 5.0 wasn't showing what the instructions said it should show. I take it as an omen that I shouldn't mess with things. I guess I'll have to wait until Verizon catches up with technology. How disappointing.

    Janey, when I was running OS 4.5 I was using Desktop Manager 4.6 without media manager and had no issues, it could be the DM 5.0 that's messing with you...

    It probably is DM 5.0. I'm downloading the OS to my computer now. It's taking a while so it's giving me time to think about it. LOL Thanks for the help SD.

    Anytime Janey, once you download the .131 OS I would delete the Desktop Manager 5.0 and install 4.6 without media manager, that's one of the best DM's in my opinion, follow the instructions in the link I provided above and you should be good. Just remember, DO NOT unplug the device until it says upgrade is successfull, it could take up to 45 minutes for the entire process, be patient...

    Ok it said everything went successfully but now I still have 4.5.0.77 running and I've lost my BBM icon.

    I knew I should have left well enough alone. Any suggestions as to how to get it back?
