    Was the message relating to the Blackberry OS, or PRL(*228 Option 2)?

    If it was the PRL, many years ago I got one of these messages when I was heavily roaming on Sprint in NYC (way after it was taken out of the PRL).

    I mean really... who is dumb enough to send out a notification email out to the entire customer base, BEFORE they've actually made the download available? Somebody is going to get a "management colonoscopy" over it, I have no doubt.

    I was just about to post this myself. I got the text message a few minutes ago:
    FREE VzW Msg. Go to BlackBerry® Software Updates to upgrade your smartphone software to latest VZ Navigator and more. Reply Q to opt out.
    WTF? I'm running 4.5.0.66
    I guess I'll see what's up when I get home and check the website?

    Not all Verizon customers got it. I didn't. I did do *228 2 yesterday. I wonder if that was what the email was supposed to be about.

    I got it this afternoon as well but the software listed is still the same one I am currently running (4.3.0.127). Nothing to do with *228 etc either, I haven't done anything special that could have triggered it.



    On the brightside maybe 4.5 is right around the corner. :P

    I got the text this afternoon and was quite excited. But since there is no update for anything at all, what are they talking about? There is nothing new since the last time I visited, which is quite a bit since I really really want what is promised from the new OS. My girlfriend also has a verizon blackberry and did not get the text. I have done nothing out of the ordinary to prompt such a text.

    Did any one reply Q to opt out to see what happens?
