    I was in a Verizon store yesterday for something unrelated but while I was there I asked the gent if he knew when Verizon weas going to release an official 5.0 OS for the 9630 Tour. His reply was that it was released and all I had to do was do an update either OTA or via BDM. His nametag ID'd him as the manager of the store.
    I checked, there was no update for that available. Does anybody know when it will be released? Does anybody know why a manager wouldn't be more correctly informed?

    I'm sorry you received the wrong information, but at this point the only APPROVED (note I said approved because if your software is any different than what is approved by VZW they could see that as a void of warranty) software version for the tour is and I have not seen or heard any communications about the software update.

    In a way he was half correct. It is released, but not for the Tour, maybe he was confused. Unless he was a robot, I am sure he makes mistakes too.

    Not jumping his case or anything. Just wanting to verify that it's really not out yet. If I get in there again anytime soon and see him I might make him aware that the Tour itself doesn't have 5.0 yet. I sure would like threaded SMS in the OS. Tnx.

    You can get leaked version of 5.0, but it is NOT out yet.

    Nah, thanks. I like support. It's easier to stick with released versions. Thanks for all the info everyone.

    This wait is rediculous! While everyone else is cozy with their approved release, seems the Tour is the last one to the table. What gives?? I mean, I really like my phone, but it could be loads better. *sigh* Why is Verizon waiting so long to give us this OS?

    Actually the only older device with an official 5.0 release is the Storm1 (9500 & 9530), the other devices that have 5.0 were released with it, the 8530, Storm2 (9550 & 9520) and the 9700.
