    Any Verizon Curve users upgraded to 4.5 yet? I'm probably going to hold off, unless anyone here has done it with a VZW 8330 successfully...

    Upgraded last night, went very smoothly. Thanks for the help everyone! It's 4.5.0.51. Only thing that immediately ticked me off was the lack of preloaded backgrounds (I was always fond of the cool designs) so I just DLed some solid/color wallpapers from CB.

    So there is an OS 4.5 upgrade for VZW Curves? Why is the latest 8330 OS listed as "4.3.whatever" in the 83xx forum?

    lol haha

    Even if Verizon did get their hands on a version of OS 4.5 for CDMA that could be considered anywhere close to official... it would take them months and months to even consider releasing it!

    It is Verizon we are talking about here... lol

    OK, bear with me, as this world is all new to me

    I just got my 8330 2 days ago. Do I need to have the media card installed before upgrading the OS? I ordered one; it just hasn't come in yet. I don't know what all can/should/shouldn't be downloaded without a media card installed.

    Thanks

    How does the amount of internal memory of devices (a hardware specification) have anything to do with OS releases?!

    I am not flaming VZW, I am stating a fact. It is partially not their fault since the CDMA releases are behind the GSM a little bit, but you also have to admit that slowness of firmware upgrades for VZW devices is a known VZW fault. All the VZW users I know make fun of VZW for this reason!

    And, yes, the 8330 has more memory... which is nice! And the VZW Curve has EVDO. I am not belittling VZW, but you have to admit they are always a little slow on the software side
