    We appreciate your attempt to keep us informed, it probably comes from a good place, but yesterday these forums were lit up with info, opinions and concerns about the update.

    You will probably get flamed pretty hard, so be prepared. Dont take it personally.

    It is all good. The flaming doesn't bother me. I dont mind being the "mikey" kinda guy that runs in screaming that the redcoats are coming after the town has been burned down.

    wrong it was available on the 31st of May, Try checking to see if you have the newest version of DM. DM was the actual first way to obtain the new OS.

    AH! once again misread of internal documentation. Thank you for pointing this out. I did just checked the VZW site to get updates for BB devices and the release date shows today.

    Yep. No Prob.

    I installed via DM on the 31st around 3:15 PST.
    I already had 4.7 DM though, I noticed some people who didn't have that version were having some issues.

    Agreed for the storm 4.7 is must this is the DM that was designed with the Storm. Kinda like some folks upgrading Curves and Pearls with 4.7 are having issues and should go back to 4.6.
